Ten years ago Carrie participated in a 3 part documentary series for the BBC called ‘The Big Silence’. The programme looked at 5 busy people with noisy lives to see what would happen if they lived with Jesuit Monks, in silence, for 8 days. The findings were the beginning of Carrie discovering how important silence was and how she could never return back to the way she used to be. Relationships too. Does silence and stillness play a part in your life?

Carrie talks about the epidemic of porn, how we have reacted to it, and how it’s not technically porn that is the issue but the motivation behind clicking online. From shaming the spouse to shaming from church members - those tactics haven’t worked, but Carrie has discovered success within her own journey and pastoring others to having successful relationships once more.
In a world full of fighting opinion, Carrie looks into the importance of diversity and how we love in disagreement. From finding friendships with Christians when she was an atheist, to the current political climate, freedom of speech is losing its edge and causing an identity crisis.
