Carol is a best-selling author and popular speaker at women’s conferences and retreats, where she teaches the Word of God with great joy and enthusiasm. She also hosts highly successful Just Joy! outreaches. Carol encourages and empowers women with passionate and practical biblical messages mixed with her own special brand of hope and humor.  Carol is a Christmas-aholic, loves ACC basketball and burying her toes in the sand at the beach! Like all post-menopausal women, she is overly fond of chocolate and enjoys a good read. She doesn’t like cleaning her house and is an expert in carry-out dinners. She hates to shop … loves to jog … and somehow finds time in her busy life to hang out with small children. She is the kind of woman that you could laugh with over lunch, cry with over disappointment, and shout with over a victory!

Carol has written six books, “The Rooms of a Woman’s Heart”, “Defiant Joy!” which was released by a subsidiary of Thomas Nelson, “Holy Estrogen!” published by Harrison House;  “No More Ordinary!”, “Refined” and “Joy For All Seasons” which were all published by Bridge-Logos. Her seventh book, “Let There Be Joy!”, which is a Christmas Devotional, was released in September of 2017. Carol’s new devotional, released in February 2018, for mothers is entitled, “Pass the Joy, Please!” and is not available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, CBD and Books-a-Million. Her 9th book, “Guide Your Mind, Guard Your Heart and Grace Your Tongue” will be released in April of 2018 by Whitaker House Publishing.

Carol was the first Women’s Chaplain at Oral Roberts University and currently serves on the university’s Alumni Board of Directors.  Currently Carol is President and CEO of Just Joy! Ministries.
