ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Carol Rodgers Hill is a divorced single mom by circumstance, a Systems Analyst by trade, a genealogist/scrap-booker by hobby, and a writer by calling. Baptized in 1984 at the age of 24, Carol has learned to strengthen her Christian walk through consistent study of the Bible, fellowship with other believers, and committing to daily devotion time to build a personal relationship with Christ. Carol is also Mom to Jeremiah, a 5-year old with Down Syndrome. Carol credits her son with the beginning of her "Faith Walk", when she had to walk by faith through his 3 open-heart surgeries at only 6 months old.

Immediately following college graduation in 1981, Carol focused on building a strong career. Armed with a BS in Engineering and an MBA in Management Information Systems, Carol commanded high salaries in Corporate America by working in the Information Technology field as a Business Systems Analyst, Project Manager, and Consultant. She loved helping people get "computer literate" and had an uncanny knack for translating user needs into the technical requirements needed by programmers. After 15 years of literally "being married to her career", Carol began to seek bigger answers. It was then the Lord put on her heart that she desired to be a wife and mother. Unfortunately, she didn't wait on the Lord to tell her who that husband would be, so she picked out her husband herself.

After being married only 18 months, her husband had just left her when she found out she was pregnant with Jeremiah. Carol was able to go on maternity leave for 3 years by selling her home, moving in with her parents, and building a Mary Kay business to support herself and her newborn son. It was after Jeremiah was born that Carol found out he had Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect. It was through Jeremiah's 30-day hospital stay that Carol found a faith that could move mountains. Building on that faith, Carol continued to study, pray daily and began to recognize God's prompting in her life.

Through continued study of the Bible, Carol began to recognize God's voice. One of the things she was called to do was to pass on the message of God's plan for women, in terms of sex and relationships with men. Through obedience to God's calling, Carol wrote What Every Woman Wished She Had Known at 15. About the book, she says: "Being a late-comer to the Christian faith, and a scholar of the Living Word, I wanted to pass on many things I've learned that would have been very helpful to have known much earlier in my life. I may have chosen not to be obedient to God's Plan, but without knowledge I didn't even have the opportunity to make a conscientious choice. Our mothers didn't talk about sex, and neither did their mothers. But God has designed sex to be a beautiful, wonderful thing, which when taken out of His framework is sordid and painful. I want our younger women and young girls to avoid the unnecessary pain I went through all my life. I want them to know God's truth."
