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.

Those prayers we scream…

Need God to be biggerThere are times I just want to scream.

Sometimes into my pillow, sometimes right at the one who triggered my insecurity, and other times because my ability to hold it all together is failing.

Then there are those times that actually I do.

And yesterday was one of those days.

Super un-awesome.

Just like for you, I’d imagine… there are circumstances and situations that have the power to knock our feet right out from under us.

I have a few.

And the Enemy knows them.

Even though I’ve been a Jesus-follower for many, many years… these things hurt. And as much as I wish I was above “acting out” when an old wound gets poked, I’m not always.

Yes, I know what the Bible says about trusting. And believing. And seeking His face.

I know them. I speak of them. I write about them.

I try to walk them out in my life.

But sometimes….

Yep, it’s on purpose

God made you on purpose

When God created YOU, He did so on purpose. 

~ He thought you up, from your hair color to your shoe size.

~ He determined the date of your entrance onto the stage of planet earth.

~ He placed you in your family because they had something you needed.

~ And He allowed those things to happen because they’d equip you for what is coming next.

 And no matter what you think, you’re here for a reason.

~ You aren’t an accident (even if that’s what you’ve been told).

~ You aren’t a cosmic collision (even if that’s popular belief).

~ You didn’t evolve (even if that’s being taught).

 And regardless of how inadequate you may feel, you have a call on your life.

~ God wants you to say yes to that thing – the one that scares you because it’s so out of your comfort zone.

~ God hopes you’ll silence the not-good-enough messages that whisper, “No, you can’t.”

~ Because God wants your life to point others to Him.

You see, there is something only you have to offer the world. Believe me, no one else has the same mix of awesome-sauce that you do.

But if you choose to sit back…

Trust: a 5-letter word that can feel more like a 4-letter word

My thoughtsI’ve been sidelined.

At least that’s what it feels like.

2014 has been quite different than I thought it would be… a huge shift from how the past several years have looked.

I’m used to lacing up my sneakers and walking into new territory. I like forward motion, and am a trailblazer at heart. Point to the dustiest path, and I’ll walk it—I may even break into a jog. Every new challenge is a foe I must hunt down and conquer. And without a doubt, I don’t do well being idle.

But it feels like I am.

For ten years, God has opened countless doors in ministry… and I’ve faithfully walked through them. I’ve been humbled by how He has used me, and grateful for every opportunity to share all He has done in my life.

And there has been a lot to share.

Trust me.

But this year has had a different landscape.
