Carol as a Public Speaker.

Carol is a qualified public speaker who has spoken at Women’s Institutes, the Mothers Union, ladies church meetings, book groups, and at bookshops among other places.
Her favourite talks include:

  • The life of Gladys Aylward, missionary to China in the 1930’s and 40’s.
  • George Muller, the founder of children’s homes in Bristol who rescued thousands of children from the slums, funded completely by faith.
  • Frances Ridley Havergal, the Victorian hymn-writer.
  • Mary Slessor, a Dundee born missionary to Calabar, Nigeria.

All these talks are based on her books.
Carol’s talks also include tales of her travels and adventures – a journey right across Russia on the Trans Siberian Railway and a trip to China including a sail on the Yangtze River.

Carol also runs a Christian Writing Group with members from Lancaster to Cannonbie, St Bees to Hexham.
