Hi, I am Carla! Forty years ago I was unsuccessful in my attempts to make that awful, shag haircut work for me. I’d not yet discovered the miracle that tweezers and a little make-up could produce. Yet despite my adolescent insecurities and absence of a personal stylist, I still dared to dream that someday a dashing, young man might find me worthy of his time.
Becoming a wife and mother was my heart's desire for as long I can remember. Fast forwarding a few decades, I can happily report that my prince did indeed show up, and 34 years later we still enjoy a pretty good life together. Along the way we parented five children, ran our own business, co-labored in ministry, and renovated a house (several times over!). It’s been a life full of adventure, but not without some bumps in the road. By God’s boundless grace (and a healthy dose of humor), I am still kicking!
Today I embrace being “further down the road” in life, an empty nester with a full heart, energized and at peace with what I’ve been taught on the journey so far, but fully aware that there’s much more for me yet to learn.
