Carey, who is from Louisiana, is married to Mrs. Tammy Roberts who is from the great state of Oklahoma. We have a blended family that consist of four adult children, one teenager and four grandkids. I enjoy our family, sharing the good news of the gospel, motorcycles, college football, blues music, and cooking.
Personally, I have fought addiction for 40+ years and walked around an incredibly angry person not understanding the underlying causes. In 2019 God spoke to my heart to diligently lean on His understanding to figure out how to live a life of Freedom. In the middle of Covid my wife and I started a brand new Celebrate Recovery called IGNITE WOODWARD which is coming up on their 3-year anniversary. Not only has God changed our life, our family lives but countless others. Today it is a thriving dynamic celebrate recovery that has partnered with local churches and businesses to transform the landscape to create a healthier community. God’s way is always better and higher than our way.
