About the Author:
Carol S. Suttibugha

I was born and raised in Southern Illinois in a warm and loving Christian family. I accepted the Lord when I was thirteen after attending church camp. I knew the Lord loved me and sent his Son to save me, but I didn't have a personal relationship with Him. After a marriage and divorce, I felt unworthy and unloved, and I turned my back on God and tried to live my life on my terms. After years of pain and depression, the Lord melted my frozen heart, and made me realize I needed to surrender my strong will to him. Six years ago I did just that, and have never regretted it for a minute. The Lord welcomed me back with open arms, and I am now blessed to have a personal relationship with him.

I now live in Las Vegas, Nevada, with the husband and two children the Lord wanted me to have. I am honored to be able to serve the Lord in many ministries within my church. About a year ago I went to the Lord with prayerful introspection and found things I needed to work on in my spiritual life. I asked the Lord to help me glorify Him, and the Lord in turn blessed me with the gift of poetry writing. I love literature and reading poetry, but had never written anything other than school assignments. I am humbled to be given this gift and strive to use it to encourage other Christians, but especially Christian women to find their voice for God.
