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.

You’re not defective

281104_Scott_Untangled_Pins

When God thought you up… He did so with great intention.

He decided the family you’d be born into and the one that would raise you. He thought up the physical features that would define you – from your hair color to your bone structure to the color of your skin. He decided when to bring you into the world because He knew you had what it needed for that season of humanity.

God picked specific character and personality traits to weave through your DNA, knowing the impact you’d have on others.

He filled you full of amazing talents and gifts to help you walk out the plans He designed for your life.

God saw the problems that would come your way — the challenges you’d have to face — the struggles that would prove life-long — and made provision for every one of them.

You weren’t a cosmic collision. God wasn’t in a bad mood when He thought you up. He didn’t lose creativity when He got to you.

And you know what? God. Delights. In. You.

Many of you feel delight-less. You’re sure others consider you too much… or too little. You feel like your wants and needs don’t matter a hill of beans.

And you feel defective.

I’m sorry, friend — sorry that you’ve bought into that great lie that says you don’t matter… and you aren’t good enough.

I get it. I believed those for most of my life.

And it tangled me into knots. Geeze, those beliefs are toxic. And they bleed into every area of life.

It’s so easy to get tangled in worthlessness. But you don’t have to stay trapped there.

Sweet one, God never wanted you to become knotted up in the I’m-not-good-enough lies. And He is ready to untangle you, if you will let Him.

“Lord, remind me that I’m not a defect but rather a creation You delight in — and even more, that I am worthy of that delight! Help me remember that You didn’t make me like anyone else. I am unique. And that’s by intentional design. Help me love myself, and keep me from comparing myself to another because that never ends up in my favor. Will You give me the eyes to see me as You see me? I want to find contentment with who I am. Untangle me, God. I can’t do this without You. In the name of Jesus. Amen.”

You’re the perfect imperfect mom for them…

279250_Scott_AprilMayPins7

~ Mom, we’re out of milk again.

~ Did you have time to wash my shirt?

~ Hey mom, you forgot to order the school lunch today and now I’m starving.

~ Where are you? I’m still waiting for you to pick me up.

~ That’s not the kind of pencil I like. Can you return them?

~ When do you think you’ll cook dinner again?

Yep… I’ve heard all of these, plus a million more like them. And every time I do, that tangle of guilt tightens –> the one that says, “I’m not a good mom – and here are all the reasons why.”

Truth is, I can’t be all things to my people.

And as much as I want to be… as much as I want to make their life easier… as much as I’d like to meet all their expectations and needs…

… I just can’t.

I never will.

Because I am imperfect. Shocker.

And friend, you are too.

We may have great intentions… We might have a heart trained on our kids… We may hope they look back on their childhood with fond memories…

… but we are mere mortals.

And we’ll forget to move the wet clothes into the dryer. We will return from the store without Cinnamon Toast Crunch. We’ll forget what time to pick up the kids.

We will say the wrong thing, joke when it’s not appropriate, and accidentally burn the sausage.

We might yell at the kids, give them the mad-mommy-stare, and struggle to forgive-and-forget their rude comment.

But knowing all of that, God chose you to be their mom anyway.

Because you have exactly what they need.

You’re the perfect imperfect mom for your kids.

So we will do the best we can. We’ll give ourselves grace for being human. And we’ll ask God to untangle the guilt that keeps us knotted up, certain we’re screwing up our kids.

We’ll trust that God knows what He is doing.

And we’ll believe that in His infinite wisdom, He chose us to be their mom on purpose.
