Believers like you get out of their comfort zone, and lean into new territories of faith everyday. I tell you how.
Some women wear joy like a jacket. They effortlessly smile, wave, and embrace others with a genuine sense of happiness. I admired people like that from afar but never thought I could be one of them.

more about me
I have served in ministry for the past decade, as well as being involved in my local community. My zeal for life, and contagious laughter light up a room. Chart a Course is my maiden voyage as an author. I hope readers would have the courage to follow their God-given calling into the unknown.
I relate all too well with my friend. I pack every moment of every day with something. Whether it is work, laundry, a lunch date, serving at church, or attending the third baseball game of the week my schedule is packed. I like it that way. There is something about being busy that validates I am contributing to society. The problem with that mindset is that it depletes us over time. We cannot go 100 miles per hour without occasionally taking time to fill the tank.
Jesus’ first words after his temptation when he began his public ministry was, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 4:17) There is no mistake in this being the first thing that Jesus started to tell the world. The bible is full of examples where humanity when off the rails away from God. Then God who is rich in mercy would call them to repent and return to him. When humanity repented then God’s punishment was removed, postponed, or lessened. When humanity refused, God’s punishment and judgment would be carried out as He promised. Jesus compels us to repent because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand. Why is this so important?

My favorite quote by Jessica Carey, "Skepticism parades itself as wisdom to keep us stuck in a place of fear."
"Jessica escorts the reader through a sea-worthy adventure of falling in love over and over with God. Brutally honest walk with God as a reminder that He does indeed fill the holes of the heart and quiets the spirit."
"Having a destination to aim for gives each of us purpose and meaning; and when we allow God to determine our course, He will bring the resources and crew we need exactly when we need them. Jessica's book Chart A Course beautifully navigates the journey of discovering where you are going, how to get there, who to bring along and most importantly why."
