Carin Jayne Casey, the oldest of several children, grew up in a middle-class Ohio community. In the midst of her parents’ marital issues, she and her siblings enjoyed many fun-filled childhood adventures. Her family moved from Ohio to rural West Virginia while she was a teenager –they lived on a mountain-side.
Casey married her high-school sweetheart and bore two wonderful children. Revisiting her childhood, she encouraged her children to play imaginative games as they grew up. Her marriage failed, and she was eventually lured into a brief, violent relationship.
Casey strives to bring awareness of potential dangers while promoting spiritual growth. She believes adults should encourage their young in healthy fun; children should know they’re safe from harsh punishments, and families should practice appropriate consequences, and forgiveness.
Casey provides a weekly podcast through Stormtalk365radio.com: TURN TO GOD WITH CARIN (began 2016), encourages people to overcome challenges in life. She provides insightful resources, scripture, and support as we navigate an uncertain world. The podcast is also available for download so you can listen to them at your convenience.
Casey graduated from Radford University in Virginia and retired from the Commonwealth of Virginia in 2017 after serving 31 years. As a survivor of domestic violence, she shares pathways to spiritual growth and recovery in her writings. She assists women’s shelters and participates in church missions.
