Award-winning author and speaker, carla mcdougal 

Jesus Follower. Wife. Mom. Author. Speaker. Film producer. Carla McDougal, founded Reflective Life Ministries in 2008. Her true passion is her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It humbles her to realize His love, grace, and mercy go beyond her understanding. She truly believes laughter is medicine from the Lord that breaks down walls and removes the masks in our lives. As a result, God has taken her around the world to encourage others to live every day for Him. Her latest book, My Prayer Chair, won multiple awards in 2013 and is now available in Spanish and audiobook. Carla and her husband, Fred, live in the Houston, TX area and have three sons, one daughter, and two daughters-in-love. She smiles to think of the experiences God allows in her life to remind her “He is in control.”
