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.

We are sailing on the Lani Kai, just off the southern coast of Maui. We try to visit there every three years or so. Sailing is one of our favorite things to do. I listen to the wind and the waves and feel so at peace. That is where I most hear the Spirit speaking to me.
