  5. I am one of so very many who was blessed to be under Carolyn’s teaching at Community Bible Study. She put so much time, study, and effort into the lessons she taught us and her words were laced with wisdom and grace.

    She had such a passion for truth and a very evident love for God and His Word! I always came away from those times at the CBS lectures inspired, better informed, and more thankful for God’s Word. I even asked her questions after class a couple of times and received thoughtful, astute answers, answers that showed me that she had really studied the lesson material far beyond what she shared during the lecture.

    Just a month ago, I asked her if she missed teaching at CBS. She told me, “Yes and no. What I really miss is all the study I used to do to prepare for the lectures. I really miss that.” Well, Carolyn, I really miss you, but it comforts me to imagine all the joy you are experiencing with Him in heaven! I treasure the memory of that last conversation.

    My heart goes out to Carolyn’s family and close friends as you learn to live without her on this earth. May He comfort you as only He can.

    In loving memory,
    Marella Elder
