Carolyn Thigpen grew up in Georgia, USA, and spent nearly forty years teaching high school mathematics. She loved working with students, and she planned to continue teaching until she couldn’t. God had other plans. When He unexpectedly took her out of the classroom in 2018, she had no idea what was ahead. After four unexpected trips to Israel in fifteen months watching God work, Carolyn found herself inspired to write devotional and inspirational articles for Him. Her blog, Giving Living Hope, can be found at carolynthigpen.com.
