Hey, it’s good to meet you

I’m a nature lover, sports fan, hiker, and avid reader. I live in north Georgia and Destin, Florida and enjoy traveling with my hubby. I like beaches everywhere while he prefers the mountains.

Being “Grami” to five of the sweetest kids ever puts the biggest smile on my face.

Looking forward to learning more about you!

Candyce Carden, Ed.S; M.Ed; MAPW; is a mother of three and enjoys life just north of Atlanta. She loves the beach and spends part of the year in Destin, Florida. Following a career as a teacher and administrator, Candyce studied English Composition at the University of Kennesaw earning a MA in Professional Writing. She won the Outstanding Scholar Award at age 57. (You’re never too old to go back to school.) This work led her to the college classroom to teach English Composition.

Candyce has published a variety of articles, including essays, profiles, and parenting and teaching articles in more than 30 magazines. She contributed curriculum and designed thematic teaching units for Lifeway, The Education Center, Mailbox Magazine, Early Years, and others. When writing for Lifeway, she was tasked with writing devotions for the Sunday School teachers of her units. Although she felt unequipped at the time, devotions became her favorite genre.

More recently, she’s contributed devotions to Reflections, The Quiet Hour, Christian Broadcasting Network, and Christian Devotions. She’s published in Chicken Soup for the Soul, Refresh Magazine, and Today’s Christian Living.

Candyce is currently working on a devotional set at the beach with the working title, WAVES OF GOD’S GLORY. Evidence of God’s glory is all around, but we’re often too busy to experience it. The devotions invite readers to explore God’s coastal creations and reflect on His work in their life.
