And Facebook you can find Carol at: Carol McLeod, Bible Teacher and Author; Just Joy Ministries; and Holy Estrogen


Carol McLeod is head over heels in love with Jesus … passionately addicted to His Word … and finds all of the joy that she needs in time spent in His presence.

A self-professed Christmas-aholic, Carol loves ACC basketball and the beach! Like all menopausal women, she is overly fond of chocolate and enjoys a good read. She doesn’t like cleaning her house and is an expert in carry-out dinners. She hates to shop … loves to jog … and somehow finds time in her busy life to hang out with small children. She is the kind of woman that you could laugh with over lunch, cry with over disappointment and shout with over a victory!

Carol is an author and popular speaker at women’s conferences and retreats, where she teaches the Word of God with great joy and enthusiasm. She also hosts highly successful Just Joy! outreaches. Carol encourages and empowers women with passionate and practical biblical messages mixed with her own special brand of hope and humor.

Carol has written three books, “The Rooms of a Woman’s Heart”, “Defiant Joy!”, and “Holy Estrogen!”. Her teaching DVD, “The Rooms of a Woman’s Heart”, won the Telly Award, a prestigious industry award, for excellence in religious programming.

A 1977 graduate of Oral Roberts University with a degree in Music and English, Carol has the distinction of being both the first Women’s Chaplain and the first woman to speak at the university’s Vespers.

Carol has been married for nearly 35 years to her college sweetheart, Craig. Together, they have produced the greatest work of Carol’s life: 5 fabulous children, 3 terrific daughters-in-law, 4 spectacular grandchildren and another on the way!
