Aka Miss Clara

The first time I ever heard of Karen Abercrombie is when she played the amazing Miss Clara in the movie, The War Room. Her phenomenal portrayal of a woman with mountain moving faith helped to make the movie what it is. The scene where Miss Clara is cheering in her kitchen about the Devil getting …
