Carla has been a pastor's wife for over ten years. Between the joys and busyness of mothering her two boys, Kalin and Christian, and two girls, Joelle and Jada, she regularly finds time to encourage others through her passion of writing. She is an award-winning writer and author of the blog Deep Waters. Carla is the founder of the original A Pastor's Wife's Garden, a growing facebook group for women in ministry with their husbands. Additionally, she is an advocate for the ministry of adoption and foster care and works with The C.A.L.L. (Children of Arkansas Loved for a Lifetime), which recruits and trains prospective foster parents from local churches. Though she has achieved much, her down-to-earth character and sweet spirit stand above her accomplishments. Beyond all, she desires to point people to Jesus and to the abundant, fruitful life He offers us all.
