About Cara

I have a desire to minister to women who are in ministry or married to someone in ministry. As a wife to a senior pastor (who has also been an associate pastor, youth pastor and music pastor) for over 20 years, I understand some of the pressure and challenges that accompany ministry work. In speaking at conferences, I am finding women connecting with my own struggles that I share and needing someone with whom to talk. My desire is to give an opportunity for you to share and have someone hear you.

I am not a licensed counselor, but I do have a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with an emphasis in Christian counseling.  I am currently working on my master’s degree also in counseling. I enjoy being a student. I am also a mom to 4 children (1 son and 3 daughters) who are quickly becoming adults and on the verge of leaving the nest. I enjoy teaching, speaking, learning and walking beside others who are struggling. I love photography, being outside, music, drinking coffee, and reading (both fiction and nonfiction). I look forward to serving you and walking with you as we strive to be faithful servants of God.
