Who Am I?
My name is Carla, but my friends call me Carley. I like it.
In a nutshell, I am Christian, Independent, Bipolar, Canadian, an author and blogger, Mommy to a Shih-Tzu named Maggie, a business owner (Bookkeeping, Payroll, and Personal Income Tax), a volunteer (every Friday in my church office), and an abuse survivor. Most of all I am a Jesus girl!
I was born in the small town of Fortune, Newfoundland. I was raised in the even smaller town of Blaketown, Newfoundland. I now live in Barrie, Ontario, where I have been since 1987. I absolutely love living in Barrie and it has become home for me in my heart.
She has her parents, two younger brothers, a circle of friends, a large church family, a dog; and an endless supply of extended family that spread across this great and beautiful country of Canada.
Carley has been writing on and off since her teenage years.

My Statement of Faith
I believe in God, the Father Almighty,
the Maker of heaven and earth,
and in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord:
Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
He descended into hell.
The third day He arose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Ghost;
the holy Christian church;
the communion of saints;
the forgiveness of sins;
the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting.
My Life Scripture Verse
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV): For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
