Carolyn M. Ellison is a native of Columbia, South Carolina. She is a mother and a grandmother.

"And they have defeated him by the blood of the Lamb and by their testimony. And they did not love their lives so much that they were afraid to die.” (NLT) Revelation 12:11

On September 4, 2008, she was caught in the middle of her daughter's domestic dispute and was shot by her daughter's boyfriend. She survived the ordeal and from that ordeal, she was inspired to write poems. She knew she had a gift. Her gift didn’t become a reality until that fateful day when she almost lost her life.

From that ordeal, she made use of her gift. God used her gift to heal her wounded soul. He gave her a voice to speak. Now she uses the gift He gave her to tell of His goodness. What she thought was a curse has turned into a blessing. What the devil meant for bad, God meant it for good." - Genesis 50:20

Carolyn has written four books. Her first book published is titled "Words to Live By”, published by New Dawning Publications. She self-published "Words to Live By Lesson Learned," “Mama Said Wisdom From The Heart”, and “The Switch”. Carolyn has a fifth book she self published that was written by her granddaughters Kiasia and Kimauri Jacobs; Out of the mouth of Babes-Wisdom from the Heart.

Carolyn's prayer is that her books will inspire you to examine your life to make some life changes.

Reviewed by Vernita Naylor for Readers' Favorite

Out of the Mouths of Babes: Praises From the Heart by Carolyn M Ellison is a short children’s story full of collective images and writings from the viewpoint of children in how they express their feelings of love, warmth, peace, God, gratefulness and the elements around them. Carolyn has taken the original writings and drawings of her grandchildren Kiasia (aka KiKi) and Kimauri to create Out of the Mouths of Babes: Praises From the Heart. As you begin to experience the essence of how children view life, you will begin to enjoy each moment of the day.

In reading Out of the Mouths of Babes, it put me in the mind of the scripture that says: “Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.” (Ps 8:2 KJV) Due to the innocence of children they have the ability to see things through purity and with a clean heart, so therefore they can see a terrible situation and turn it into a positive element. You will find Out of the Mouths of Babes: Praises From the Heart by Carolyn M Ellison easy to read with a childlike quality due to its layout and design. It is a book that you can read with your children or they can read it alone.
