SUCCESS STORIES

o
Your life's experience, work, and ministry is really blessing my life. Thank you Dr. Carol - from one ministered soul to you a mouthpiece of God's Word. Whew! So I just shed a few more tears while writing this.

Mady

Your videos and articles helped me greatly. I had decided that that if by a certain time my husband and I were not making progress, I was leaving. But then my husband and I talked!!! We have a long way to go, but with God we will succeed. Thank you Lord, and thank you Dr Carol."

Anne

We faced this hurdle where we needed help. Dr Carol listened, and when she gave advice it felt like it was without judgement and made us both see the issue in a new perspective. Now our marriage is stronger than ever.

ABOUT ME

o

Hello, my name is Dr. Carol Tanksley

I’m an OB-Gyn physician, Doctor of Ministry, author, and speaker. And I’m so happy you’ve joined me on this journey to live Fully Alive!

I’ve practiced medicine for 25 years (in Texas since 2005), and am board certified in Obstetrics-Gynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology. I currently practice part-time, providing short-term relief for other OB-Gyn physicians and hospitals. This provides the flexibility for me to do more of the ministry work I love.

While continuing to practice medicine, I also obtained an M.Div. (Master of Divinity), and then a D.Min. (Doctor of Ministry) from Oral Roberts University, focusing on Christian leadership. My husband Al and I together produced a regular radio program “The Dr Carol Show” from 2009 until not long before his death in 2016.

Speaking, writing, and connecting with people both here and around the world lets me help men, women, and couples live more Fully Alive and experience the good health, loving relationships, and joyful spirituality that Jesus came to bring us.

I live in Austin, Texas, where I get to enjoy being Grandma Carol to four wonderful grandchildren.
