Pastor’s daughter

to share her story




Tahlequah Aglow Community Lighthouse will feature Carla Cary at 7 p.m. Thursday.

Being raised in the home of a pastor wasn’t a magic cue card for Carla, according to a media release.

Cary experienced the disappointments and challenges that life can bring, the release states.

After falling to a very low point in her life, she finally came to a place where she opened her heart up to the Lord, and let Him change her and bring her the healing she so desperately needed.

Come hear Carla share her story. She also will share about her new book.

The meeting will be held in the Tahlequah Public Library Carnegie, 120 S. College Ave. Everyone is welcome.
