#Dovetales is back this Sunday, October 7, 2018 with Carri Oller who is a wife, mother, speaker, Song Writer, Author and founder of Women Becoming Ministries. As a #preteen Carri was #bullied, an experience which almost led her to take her life. What have we allowed the world to tell us about ourselves? Furthermore, what do we believe and how have we allowed the influences of this world, through various forms of media, to replace what #Christ thinks of us and the reason He died on the cross for us? Healthy interaction with outside influences is okay, but the book of Romans says to not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Through Christ, folks,we can be Born Again, we can start over with the truth regarding what God says about us as a foundation. Now that we can take to the bank! I am excited, because through Carri Oller’s ministry she seeks to educate people of all ages through authenticity while communicating the Word of God in a way that is easy to understand. Sometimes, It doesn’t matter how educated one is if they lack the ability to bring their knowledge to the ear of the listener. So, join us as we unpack yet another tremendous Dovetale. The fun begins at 2:30 pm eastern time!

A Note of Inspiration from Carri Oller
Carri’s life motto is: Life without laughter doesn’t make any sense. With that being said, Carri loves to make people laugh and loves encouraging others through humor.
There have been a few times…Okay more than a few times in my life that God guided me and helped me through difficult seasons. You know it’s funny, we don’t realize where God is while we are in the storm, because we are so focused on the storm rather than fixing our gaze on the One who can calm the storm. When my son Abram was five years old, his Pre-k teacher told us that we might want to have him evaluated. She was worried about his lack of eye contact and motor skills. Of course like any parent would, my husband and I were in denial that there was something going on with our son that was to be concerned about…but with much prayer and thought, we went ahead and had him evaluated. There were a couple of doctors that saw our son and said things like, “With his eye movement moving the way it does, I don’t think he will be able to read.” “He might Have dysgraphia.” When getting these diagnosis we felt discouraged and saddened about these evaluations. That was until God reminded me that He has the last word. My son then went to another doctor and they said, “He has high functioning Autism or also known as Asperger’s and he has Low Sensory Integration Disorder. They were encouraging to us, as we were having him go through occupational therapy. I remember one time I was sitting in the occupational therapy office and I saw parents who like me were doing everything they could for their children to have success with motor skills and behavioral skills. I sat there in my chair at first praying and saying, “God why my son? Why? What did I do wrong?” But as I started allowing God to start shifting my perspective, I saw parents whose children were similar to my son and I saw parents whose children had more obstacles or as I like to call them opportunities to overcome to the best of their abilities. I then changed my prayer from asking God why to saying, “Thank you God for this amazing opportunity to encourage other parents in the waiting room.” As my perspective shifted from the problem to the Problem Solver, I saw God do miracle after miracle with my son. My son was reading on an 8th grade level when he was in 3rd grade. He was outgoing and strong. He shined so bright that others couldn’t help but smile when he was around. God is faithful. This is just one example of God’s faithfulness. He has done so much in my life and I guarantee He is doing much in yours too. Even if it doesn’t seem like there’s a way out of the storm you’re in, I promise you that God is working. As my friend Boris says, “God has an excellent long game.” God sees the big picture. We simply have to trust Him.
Blessings to you!
