  1. She loves Jesus.
  2. She loves to surprise attack her students with stamps that have her mottos written DSC_0288still needs workon them: Choose Joy & Best Day Ever (today is the best day ever because if it were my last day I would want it to be my best day – so today is the best day ever).
  3. The best day ever can be made complete by: bicycle rides, organic white chocolate, a bottle of Kombucha, and snuggling with her husband Brady and her daughter Kayden.
  4. She is one of those crazy English teachers who likes to employ ninja kicks, unbirthdays, and any method to reach her beloved students.

  6. Inhaling books, adventuring, bravery, and artistry are among some of her favorite pastimes.
  7. She love love loves people: being with people, learning from people, praying with (and for) people, laughing with people, meeting new people, loving on people (YOU kind of people! Let’s chat! Coffee?)
  8. Once upon a time she wanted to be an opera singer or broadway belter, but God had bigger, wilder plans. She still loves to sing and worship is her pathway to His presence.
  9. She loves to speak to people (call me! I’ll come to your church/school/place/coffee shop/basement) about her heart, tell her stories, and give credit to the man who took her brokenness and became enough so she didn’t have to be: her Jesus.
  10. If you really know Carrie, she doesn’t want to stop at 10, but it is totally necessary or you might get bored and want to stab your eye with a fork. Don’t do it!!!! (The normal, boring biography is below)
