My name, Carol
, means "Song of Joy," so, it was no coincidence that music would have an important place in my life.
I grew up loving to sing the "old hymns of the faith" in our little country church.
You see, I loved God and I desperately wanted to please Him.
But, like so many others I knew, I figured that if I did enough good things for God, He
would overlook the "few" bad things in my life.
Well, KNOWING this has brought such joy to my life, the fulfillment of my name, Carol
, "Song of Joy," and has resulted in the many songs of praise I've been inspired to write.
