Cara was born and raised in West Michigan, where she currently lives with her husband and identical twin sons. A former youth pastor, she currently works on the Worship Staff at Walker Harbor Church in Walker, MI. She is also a Resident Director for freshman and sophomore residents on the campus of Hope College (Holland, MI). As a recovering addict and as a woman, she’s not afraid to talk about the things that make us cringe...15+ years of love addiction has led to a deep, hard-fought appreciation for honesty and vulnerability. She doesn’t pretend to have all the answers, but she’s learned to appreciate the beauty of looking for them together. It would make sense, then, that Cara’s always up for good conversation and good company. Other things on the top of her list are spontaneous adventures, trying new restaurants, hitting the gym, reading, movies, and sitting by the lake.
