Carol is passionate about children, books, education, and gardening. She is the mother of three adult children and has experienced being a single parent. Her career as an educator has been remarkable. With over 25 years of experience working with children, she sees an ever-increasing number of students struggling with 21st century issues. In her classroom, she has observed how children are capable of comforting each other in difficult moments. Her hope is to create  books that provide parents, children, educators, counselors, and places of worship a tool to support families coping with struggle and celebrating life.
