WIFE, MOTHER, Author & GREAT COOK

Carolyn Hill

Hi my friend,

Just a note about my life journey–

Lyme disease robbed me of my health, but by the grace of God, it couldn’t touch my spirit. When I got sick in the early 2000’s, I was forced to retire from a successful thirty-year career as an interior designer.

Confined to bed and in severe pain, I think I might have lost my mind had I not started writing. It literally saved my life. It gave me a purpose to keep living, to keep dreaming.

In my stories, I write about women who overcome difficult circumstances drawing from my own dark days. Now, I can write a new chapter, propped up on pillows, and be happy as a little clam. What the enemy meant for evil, God used for good. 

Life is hard, but God is good. It’s my passion to help and encourage other women to be overcomers, resilient and to choose to live a life full of joy regardless of their circumstances.

NEW IN BOOKS

It’s a Secret!

My latest book is a finalist in the ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers) Genesis contest. We’re not allowed to publish the name until after the conference in San Antonio at the end of September. But I’m excited to tell you more about it after the winner has been announced.

From My Heart

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness," Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.

2 Corinthians 12:9

 

Each morning we can choose to trust in God and be thankful. Let's make that choice together. 

Start by doing what’s necessary;  then do what’s possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible. 

St. Francis of assissi.
