Her book, Lost and Found, Discovering Strength in Love and Faith was published in March 2014.

She offers retreats, workshops, and book groups based on Lost and Found for individuals and organizations who want to explore the principles further.
One of Carol’s most treasured joys is seeing her young adult sons become the incredible men they are while consciously developing her own life and purpose.
