Hey, I’m Carla Arges. Daughter of the King. Wife. Mom. Mental Health Warrior. Trauma Survivor. And Avid Coffee Drinker. I spent years broken by trauma and mental illness, barely surviving the day to day struggles of my own inner dialogue. I believed the lies of the past, the hurtful things spoken over me and my own self defeating thoughts. But then something happened. I reclaimed my identity in Christ, figured out how to renew my mind and built the mental grit needed to leave my past self behind and walk in the beautiful purpose God has over my life.
My hope is that as you engage with me – whether on my social media, website, podcast or through one of my programs – you will find a safe place to feel seen and heard, as well as Biblically based encouragement and practical tips from my own life experience. My mission is to empower and equip you to ditch the negative self talk, grow in God and build mental resilience.
