Carol was miraculously filled with the Spirit 34 years ago after God led her husband to take his family to church. One evening after putting her children to bed, she was alone in worship when God’s presence met her in a mighty way! She felt a stirring begin in her innermost being. She explains that it was the feeling one gets in their stomach when one goes down a hill quickly. The stirring stayed while increasing to such a degree that it felt like a fire in her inner being, “Like a fire shut up in her bones!” (Jeremiah 20:9) That stirring fire was so intense that she wanted to say, “I cannot take it anymore!” but dared not hinder His work and presence, which lasted all night. Oh, the joy was unspeakable! She said, “The experience was such a tangible point of knowing for certain that God is real, and His very present Spirit is the ultimate satisfaction that this life craves!”
The first time Carol heard the Lord speak to her was early one morning; upon awakening, she heard Him say, “Give me all of your cares.”
Her first revelation came early one morning upon awakening; before fully conscious, God dropped this acronym in her spirit for “The Gospel” - True Humility Expressed, God’s Own Son Provided Eternal Life.” Since then, her heart was tuned to the Spirit’s frequency.
She held a Fitness Training and Fitness therapy certification with the International Sports Science Association (ISSA) and has personally trained many clients and held fitness seminars to share her conviction of stewardship and health for God’s people.
She has appeared on Daystar Television discussing “Discipline for Life, a fitness ministry to address God’s will for His people to be physically, mentally, and spiritually disciplined. Carol has a firm conviction for the stewardship of the health that God has provided His children through His covenant blessing. “By His stripes, we were healed” means that Jesus’ stripes took the punishment for the sinful nature, and through the healing of that sinful nature, through His covenant promise, and by His Spirit’s power, His children can live and move and have their being in the health He intended. The word of the Lord came to her saying, “Many of my people are sick because they do not take care of themselves.” The spiritual, mental, and physical health of God’s promise is a stewardship! He is sought at the altar of prayer for healing, yet His people fail to produce the fruit of self-control and continue to walk away from His wisdom and walk out of His provision with every bite and decision to remain idle. She lays blame squarely on the tongue; it truly is a world of iniquity that ruins one’s health if not tamed. She believes that His children should do their best to maintain health yet understands that in this troubled world there is sickness and physical death. Upon death, she wants to hear her Lord say, “Well done.”
Carol was born in Denton, Texas, in 1962 and grew up in Ponder, Texas. She has been married for 36 years and has three children. They homeschooled for nine years before moving to Katy, Texas, and is now blessed with two beautiful grandchildren. She is a credentialed minister with the South Texas Assemblies of God and a Commissioned Colson Fellow.
