Connecting with Carla


Carla V. Gardner

 “I was born on purpose, for a purpose, with a purpose so that God’s purpose may be fulfilled.”

I am a writer whose heart’s desire is to encourage, inspire and motivate others while imparting words of wisdom through encouragement and inspiration. My assignment is to speak life into the life of others by making a positive difference with words that will motivate, impact, empower, and influence.

All too often people underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a hug, a compliment, or a word that is spoken with kindness that encourages, inspires, motivates, and builds up instead of tearing down. All of these things may be small, but they can truly leave a big impact on the life of another. That is why we should never take anyone lightly, nor for granted because everybody is somebody.

My favorite scripture: ~Romans 8:28~ “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”

My favorite quote: “To see God in everything, so that I may not miss Him in anything.” Quoted to me by my dear mother; Linda V. Gardner, June 2003

  1. Carla;
    First of all thanks a lot for following my blog.
    Right now, I am on your blog only and reading your wonderful, well-written and very well articulate “About” page; I too want to follow your blog; but; I couldn’t find the follow blog widgets so can you please tell me how can I subscribe to your blog.
    Eagerly awaiting for your reply.


    • Thank you Swajithkas for your interest in having a desire to follow my blog. I give all the glory to God since He is the one who gives me the words to write. I too am impressed with your blog, and look forward to reading your posts. The follow widget on my blog should be available and set because others are following my blog, and they had no problem, as far as l know. Maybe, if you go to my “Home Page”, the widget may be there for you to follow. If not, and you are still having problems, please let me know and l will look more into my settings. I apologize for this inconvenience. Thank you so much again, and may your day be blessed.

    Thanks for your prompt yet precise reply; I have tried everything and as per your suggestion I have visited your home page too but there also I haven’t found any thing; now, if you look at the footer of my blog; you will find one widget which is exclusively for following only; so, can you please guide me how to subscribe for your blog.
    Eagerly awaiting your reply.


    • Swajithkas, at this time l am unable to look into the problem; I am preparing to go to church. As soon l return and get settled, l will look more into my settings, and will be sure to get back with you. Again, l sincerely apologize, and thank you again for your interest.

    • Good morning Swajithkas, l did not forget about you. I was at church all day yesterday, and it was late when l came in so l rested. I did say a prayer for you, and l did speak to God on your behalf. I wanted to respond back to you as l said l would. This morning l went into my blog website, and l saw the “follow widget” on my website in the top on the left. It is there because almost weekly, l have different individuals who start following me, and no one has ever stated that they had a problem in locating the “follow widget” before. I pray that you will be able to find it, and once again take the time to attempt to follow me.

    I am truly touched by your words; you prayed on behalf of me?
    What a surprise; I am absolutely thankful to you from bottom of my heart.
    Still, I did’t find in your blog’s follow widget section, but I tried to another method to follow your blog; but still I have not received confirmation message; have you received about my notification that I have subscribed for your blog?
    Wishing you all the best…..


    • Swajithkas, to God be the glory. I am glad that you were able to connect. I pray that you will be blessed and encouraged by the words that are written on my blog; as l too also pray that l will be encouraged and blessed by your blog.
