Passion and Purpose


Reflective Life Ministries (RLM) became a 501c3 non-profit organization in 2008. RLM's purpose is to provide authentic biblical programs that encourage and inspire Christ-centered transformation   We accomplish this mission through Christ-centered film productions, Bible studies, Christian books, marriage conferences, women’s ministry events, international missions, and much more. RLM's message is summed up in this powerful, yet simple statement, "Life is not about me, but all about Jesus." 


Reflective Life Ministries (RLM) was founded by Carla McDougal in 2008. RLM is comprised a team of believers who are individually blessed with a variety of talents and gifts. All are unique and different, yet their hearts beat as one for their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. RLM truly is a picture of the body of Christ working together to accomplish His purposes. 

RLM has expanded throughout the years. Not only has the team increased in numbers, but also God has opened doors for them to minister is ways they never dreamed possible. Such as 3 faith-based feature film productions, Christian written materials, leadership training, marriage conferences, and national/international mission opportunities. Some say, "RLM is a ministry serving other ministries, which serves to exhort believers in Jesus." Basically, RLM comes alongside and inspires others forward in their calling to serve God.  

RLM's newest faith-based movie is called STRONGER - Healing for the Broken. Victory for the Wounded. What started as a story about a soldier returning from Afghanistan with PTSD who is trying to rebuild his life has changed and grown in many respects. Through talking to Christian organizations working with those with PTSD as well as men and women suffering themselves, the RLM Production Team quickly became aware of others also in need of help. The script was rewritten to include first responders, burn survivors and anyone who has suffered extreme trauma in life. STRONGER's focus is to help those suffering from the often debilitating symptoms of PTSD to realize there is hope and healing through Jesus Christ. RLM is behind a grassroots movement called the STRONGER TOGETHER ALLIANCE (STA) made up of Christ-centered organizations whose mission is also to help those with PTSD as well as their families. The goal of the STA is to help link organizations and churches’ locally as well as nationally. Such a picture of God's call for unity among His children.
