Carrie 2013 crouched

Hey there! I’m Carrie, and I’m so glad you stopped here to find out more about me.

Over the years, God rewrote my dreams from being a corporate accountant to being a stay-at-home mom and a writer. Okay, so I came kicking and screaming part of the way, but I’m so thankful that God persisted.

I am a military wife. Or, more accurately, a former military wife. After Basic, two Tech Schools, three duty stations and ten years in the military, my husband medically retired. He is now a government employee on Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, so we still get to hang out and support our active duty members.

We live near the base with our three children, all teenagers. Besides writing books, I homeschool, try to keep up with family and friends, and volunteer within my church’s military ministry (and cram in as much reading as I can).

My Writing

More than anything, I strive to write encouraging books. My fiction is purposely clean, happily-ever-after, gentle romance stories that show practical Christianity. My nonfiction for military spouses is hard-hitting but written with great love. I want to challenge every Christian to live abundantly, to dream big with God, and to believe you are meant for more.

You’ll see a lot of my heart and values in my weekly blog posts. Sometimes I post about great books, and occasionally I hand the reins over to a friend who challenges me to keep seeking Christ. But mostly you’ll see me asking you to live abundantly, dream big, and believe you are meant for more.

God’s taught me many things that I want to share with you, and I know He still has a lot to teach me. It’s going to be an incredible journey! Will you join me?

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
(Ephesians 3:20-21)
