Professional Bio

Amy Carroll is raising a community of women with tender hearts and strong voices, equipping those who want to make a difference for God but fear jumping into culture’s fray. She’s blazing a path that leads you to:

  • Listen to others with love so that you can understand even when you don’t agree.
  • Feel people’s pain with a soft and strong heart, empowering you to respond with healing solutions.
  • Do good that gives credibility to your words and outshines a thousand clever memes.
  • Speak into the battle of extremes with gentle confidence and Scripture-grounded wisdom.

A consummate Southern girl, Amy loves words that shape a great story and a challenging idea. She’s the author of Exhale and Breaking Up with Perfect, a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries speaker and writer teams, and co-host of the Grit ‘n’ Grace podcast. She has been interviewed on numerous podcasts, tv shows and radio programs including Focus on the Family.

Amy’s committed to opening up her whole life– the good, bad and ugly—to teach what she’s learned in pursuit of applying God’s Word.  She loves teaching Scripture in all its unvarnished glory, while sharing God’s big truths in small, understandable bites.

Traveling the world and hearing how God works in women who attend her events makes Amy’s heart swell with joy. As founder and speaker coach of Next Step Coaching Services, providing one-on-one training for Christian speakers and writers, Amy delights in helping other speakers birth their own messages.

You can find Amy in North Carolina on any given day texting her adult kids, typing at her computer, hanging out with her hunky husband, or trying to figure out one more alternative to cooking dinner.
