Hi. My name is Carol Strand. I am currently in my second year at Luther Seminary as an MDiv student. Before I received my call, I was a public school music teacher and a private piano and voice instructor. My favorite form of relaxation is reading about, viewing and/or creating art in whatever form that happens to pique my interest at the time. Being by the ocean is where I feel my most inspired. I can hear the voice of God in the waves.
I am married to Scott and we have two sons who are 33 and 29, two wonderful daughters-in-love and two beautiful granddaughters, ages 3 1/2 and 7 months. I have been truly blessed in my life by all the gifts I have received.
I see myself changing as I journey down this road. It is scary but it is also very exciting. I am humbled by this call that I have received. I sometimes wonder what God sees in me, but I trust that God knows what He/She is doing.
