I’m glad you’re here!

Hi, I’m Carey -- a speaker, author, and life coach honest about my life and faith, stumbles, fumbles, and all.

My ministry focuses on helping women untangle their self-worth from the world and secure it in Jesus. And when we do, we’re free to live authentic lives… not perfect ones.

When you’re not sure who you really are

When the world says who you are isn’t good enough…

When others remind you that you don’t have what it takes…

When the Enemy brings to mind your failures and indiscretions…

God boldly reminds you of who you really are… and how your imperfect life can glorify Him.

And if you’ll believe that truth, it will begin to untangle all the lies that have knotted you up for so long.

Untangled Radio: 3 ways we feel insecure in marriage

CareyScott_Episode Graphic003Hallmark cards for husbands and wives are so sappy.

If we were to define marriage based on what they said, we’d think it was always wonderful… always fulfilling… always loving.

Um, right.

Marriage can be flavored with all those things. But it also has its fair share of hurt feelings, pain, and frustration.

That’s just reality.

Because like everything else in life, marriage has an ebb and flow to it. Some seasons are awesome…

… some not so much.

And we get into trouble when we let those seasons determine how we feel about ourselves.

Think about it… how does your marriage affect your self-esteem?

When you and your man are connecting well and enjoying one another, don’t you feel the most confident?

But what happens when your marriage feels unstable and dysfunctional? How do those times affect your sense of worth?

And what can you do about it?

What to do when others think you’re too messy

278599_Scott_FebMarchPins2

Are you tired of being told you’re too much. That you’re too messy or too high-maintenance? That you just need to “get over it”?

Well friend, your neediness doesn’t frustrate or overwhelm God. You don’t wear Him out. And He will never grow tired of hearing about the insecurities that are tangling you up.

Why not talk to Him about them right now?

Untangled Radio: When words bruise your heart

CareyScott_Episode Graphic002Words are so powerful because they carry an assignment.

All of them.

Every single one.

Think about it. Gracious words can lift you up when you’re feeling insignificant. They can blow life into a weary heart that feels forgotten. And they can affirm your efforts when you put yourself out there, trying something new.

But words can also knock you to your knees.

A careless comment can leave you feeling stupid. A simple sentence can make you feel inferior by “putting you in your place.” One mean phrase can close up your heart in self-protection.

Often on purpose — sometimes on accident — others can use their words to diminish you.

And it tangles you up because they say things that make you doubt you’ve anything to offer anyone—like you’re worthless.

So you wonder…

… Why would I get close to someone and risk another reminder that I don’t measure up?

… Why would I give someone else a chance to bruise to my heart?

… How do I trust enough to open myself up again?

And the answer may surprise you.

Oh, and leave a comment below telling me the role tangling words have played in your life.
