Enduring threats of losing her daughter from corrupt officials, suffering from food and energy shortages and surviving a revolution with two weeks of shoot-to-kill curfews, Carmen celebrates the strength of the bond with her own mother, the courageous commitment of friendship and the irrefutable evidence of God’s intervening love. AUDIENCE: General and Christian; FORMAT: Keynote, Banquet, Workshop

The Miracle of More

Rediscovering the Forgotten Teaching of Jesus

Based in her own story of overcoming financial loss due to the Recession of 2008, Carmen  tackles one of Jesus’ most difficult teachings: Those who have, more will be given to abundance. Those who do not have, what little they have will be taken away. Emerging from this dark period in her life with a meassage of hope, empowerment and a clear path forward, Carmen offers a simple, yet powerful path to overcome fear and loss, and to actively engage in being blessed with more. AUDIENCE: Christian and Spiritually-open; FORMAT: Keynote, Workshop, Half or Full-Day, Retreat
