Arends excels in the live setting, giving color and breath to her material and making her a must-see if she plays a venue near you.

Listening to Carolyn Arends’ speaking and sharing her music is hearing her honest heart. She has an amazing capacity to pull from the Scriptures the life lessons recorded and relate them to our contemporary living. Her personal struggles and life-experiences are shared with passion, humor, empathy and hope—and always directed to the person of the Lord Jesus Christ. – Sylvia Advent, Chair, Grande Prairie Women Alive TeamCarolyn’s excellent talks exceed my expectations.
