Siblings, 2013. A touch blurry, but I do believe that Willie’s smile makes up for that.

Dear readers,

Happy Monday! I have some fun news to share, so let’s dive right in.

First up is an interview I did with ThinkPiece Publishing’s founder, Adam Wahlberg. As you may recall, ThinkPiece (“singular voices on social issues”) published my Kindle Single, I Was a Stranger to Beauty, and I could not have asked for a better publishing experience.

As such, it’s my pleasure to share The ThinkPiece interview with you. It’s a distillation of an hour-plus conversation, with snippets on family, writing, vocation, and more.

My favorite line — spoken in the context of showing up and publishing here each week — is, “It helps you get over yourself a little bit.” Writing for you, showing up and sharing stories with you, really DOES help. It helps me step out of self-consciousness and insecurity and fear and step into love instead. Thank you.


Need a speaker for your next event? Contact me.

So far, I’ll be heading to California to present at the Kern Autism Network’s annual conference March 13-14, and then to Illinois to keynote at the Arc of Illinois’ 2014 convention April 23-24. I’d love to see you there!

    Caroline, thank you for posting this. I honestly did not understand what it meant when I read the description in your bio, that you are a copywriter. Now, I have a much better understanding since looking at the quiz you provided. I am going to recommend you to Estrelda Alexander, the president at William Seymour College. That’s the organization where I was trying to coordinate the forum, and it basically fell apart at the advertising stage. I think that a huge problem is the website. Getting it “right” would be a good first step. I hope she will follow up with you.
    PS- keep up the good work. I don’t often comment, but I am always amazed and inspired by what you do and what you write!

      Monica, that’s great! I’m glad to hear that the quiz was helpful — as digital copywriting is a relatively new profession, I often hear questions like, “But what do you actually DO?” 🙂 Thank you for that insight and recommendation too — much appreciated! Blessings right back.
