Carol A. Goad

Why book Carol A. Goad?

Carol is a mother of 5, and wife of over 20 years. Author of Chemo Induced Insanity (due out Dec 2011), she is a breast cancer survivor, who has given herself the more executive title of.... CEO of Goad Home Management. (because the term stay-at-home mom, doesn't cut it)

She is has been through cancer, the loss of a child, the rigors of raising teenagers, and the ups and downs of what those things can do to a marriage.
God has called her to speak to women in particular in her own humorous slightly sarcastic way about how to look at these trials like small slightly annoying speed bumps in life, and how the true hero is our Faith, our ability to Love and God, our night in shining armor.


What an inspiring speaker!

Carol spoke at our Thursday morning ladies church group meeting. When I first contacted her, I didn't expect her to accept my invitation unless she was already in the area. Her home is nearly 3 hours away. But she graciously accepted, and we are so fortunate that she did. Our ladies loved her talk. Her talk was moving, humble, funny, and most of all inspirational. I am still getting positive feedback from members, and thanks to Carol, I know I can find a silver lining in every situation!

Carol's faith through adversity shines through.

I had the opportunity to hear Carol at her first speech. Although she was very nervous, she did very well in conveying her message to us all. I would definitely go to another event that she is the speaker. She has a true spirit of God's amazing love. Carol has the ability to touch lives through her humor and experiences of life.

Blessed beyond measure...

Mrs. Goad has a love for God that shines on her face from the very first words that come out of her mouth through her laughter and tears about how our Heavenly Father has blessed her through her cancer treatment, the lose of her daughter and the trials of raising 5 children whom she loves very much. If you have darkness in your life and in need of someone to shine some light on you, Carol Goad is the speaker to listen to. Expect your heart to sing with hope and sides to ache from laughter. I am forever changed eternally blessed.
