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.
No one really wants to admit that they discriminate or have prejudices. I still hate admitting what I am about to tell you. The fact that I fear this group of people and go out of my way to avoid engaging with them makes me sick. I have justified my discrimination as discernment for many years. Until recently.
I was turning toward home when I realized I needed a few things at the store. I picked up some fruit, dishwashing soap, and a loaf of bread. I was heading to checkout when I saw her. My new neighbor walking directly towards me. I knew it was her because she was wearing the same clothing I had seen her in only a few minutes before. This was the do or die moment. I knew God was calling me out to PRACTICE WHAT I PREACHED!
I waited outside in a dingy hallway of a casting agent’s office somewhere on the lower west side. The lighting was dull fluorescent and it smelled like a mixture of old shoes and a hundred years of dust. I sat with other wannabe actors. All of us nobodies just trying to get a break. I don’t remember anything about them other than I wasn’t alone.
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."
