'My Prayer Chair' by Carla McDougal Wins Two Awards
Carla McDougal, whose Reflective Life Ministries works to connect women by sharing the truth and message of Jesus Christ, has recently had her book My Prayer Chair honored by two major book awards. The book, which acts as a devotional guide for Christians looking to speak to their Lord more frequently, was awarded both the 2013 USA Best Book Award in the Prayer & Devotional category and a silver medal in the 2013 Readers' Favorite Book Awards.
Carla McDougal, who also frequently speaks on devotion and Christian women's ministry, is extremely excited by the awards. "I'm so honored to have my book recognized, and am thrilled that readers are responding to the power of habitual prayer." The purpose of Reflective Life Ministries is to transform one's life into a reflection of Christ. My Prayer Chair is an effort to guide readers into the same living, breathing relationship with Jesus that McDougal herself has cultivated.
She adds, "This recognition is very humbling. It reinforces for me that, though Christ's love and mercy are far beyond my understanding, ministry is truly the path for my life. I hope to continue growing Reflective Life Ministries for many years to come."
McDougal, who has struggled herself with depression and dyslexia, is an inspirational figure who will surely continue to speak, write, and otherwise help others develop a constant relationship with Christ.
Carla McDougal is the founder of Reflective Life Ministries in the Houston area, as well as an author and a speaker. Her true passion is her Lord and savior, Jesus Christ. It humbles her to realize that His love, grace, and mercy go beyond her understanding. She truly believes laughter is medicine from the Lord that breaks down walls and removes the masks in our lives. As a result, God has taken her around the world to encourage others to live every day for Him. RLM's newest venture involved the production of a second movie. Carla explains, "Reaching audiences through high-quality, Christ-centered films offers powerful avenues to affect the Kingdom of God." Carla and her husband, Fred, live in the Houston area and have three sons, one daughter, and two daughters-in-law. She smiles to think of the experiences God has allowed in her life to teach and remind her "He is in control."
