Carla McDougal, founder of Reflective Life Ministries, has a true passion for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. This love shines brightly whether she is speaking or writing. 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. Carla’s first book, Reflecting Him: Living for Jesus and Loving It, was published in 2010. It is a 10-week study that encourages the reader to open her eyes to God’s daily life lessons.

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 has allowed in her life to teach and remind her “He is in control.”
