About Carmen

Invite Carmen to Your Church or Home Fellowship!

Carmen married her High School Sweetheart, Stacy in small town AmeriCarmenca in 1995. They have four incredible children:  Caleb, Bethany (and her husband/bonus Son, Ryan), Kaitlyn and Kierstyn. They have two guard dogs, GSD’s Naxx and Bella, and one ferocious Pomeranian, Goliath.

Carmen has been teaching Biblical Hebrew and Torah in her home for close to twenty years gathered around in a circle of women – one of her favorite places to be!  She is the founder of Mereas of Grace Torah Fellowship, a teaching and discipling ministry for women, couples and families.

An Oklahomie by birth, Carmen now resides in North Dallas after many years of transitions, both figuratively and geographically.   She enjoys sharing The Living Word framed within its Jewish context so others may learn to ‘Taste, See and Agree’ with Yeshua, The Deliverer and Sustainer of LIFE.

She loves helping women UNCOVER their ‘Divine Fire’.   The Divine Fire of Ezer Kenegdo is the exposition of Genesis 1-3, the Foundation that teaches women how The Creator defines and refines His people that they may walk within ‘The Boundaries of Delight’ once again in Yeshua, The Savior. Investigating the Biblical Text in its original languages, Carmen invites others on this journey teaching that to discover these Truths is to experience restoration and healing inside for the purpose of experiencing healing outside (that is, relationally and functioning by Divine Design).

Carmen ministers weekly to women one-on-one or in a group from her home OR from her desktop in an online format, as a ‘Mereas Mussar LIFE-Coach’. She has experienced both personally and witnessed in other lives within the circle, that ‘the smaller the circle, the greater the healing’.

One of Carmen’s greatest delights is to witness women Tasting, Seeing and Agreeing with the Keeper of The Vine and thus, ‘bearing much fruit’ in her daily living. You can find her breaking down these Hebrew Word Visions on her website, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and her Mereas of Grace Podcast. But, still, her favorite spot will always be looking another in the eye, answering to one another for ‘It is Written’ until all realize what it means to WALK IN LIBERTY AND UNITY of THE HOLY SPIRIT Who is Kindness and Truth.


Carmen would love the privilege of sharing  G-d’s Life-Changing Word with your group of women, whether it be small or large. 
Her heart’s desire for this ministry to women is to bring glory and honor to our Father through the teaching of His Word for the purpose of transforming His Beloved…

Speaking Topics


  • The Fulfilled Woman The Fulfilled Woman Small Group Bible Study is available in PDF for a suggested donation of $50.  It includes Additional Leaders Tips for successful shepherding.  I will email PDF along with a few personal coaching ideas to make your home fellowship fruitful and productive!

    What does a fulfilled woman look like?

    Being satisfied in life begins with knowing Jesus Christ Whose Spirit gives purpose, empowerment and instruction for living.  And this fulfillment grows as we obey His instruction to ‘love one another as I have loved you.’ (John 15:12)

    God’s Word and your life are all about your relationships – beginning with Him and overflowing onto others!

    What do your relationships look like? God’s plan is to generously bless you as you believe enough to faithfully and wholeheartedly follow His Word. Are you positioned for a blessing? Luke 1:45 says, ‘Blessed is she who has believed that what was spoken to her by the Lord will be fulfilled!’

    Gather your women and sojourn together through His Word in fellowship, food and fun! Praying His many blessings are yours!

  • Torah Study! – It’s been said that not pushing past the English text of the Bible to learn the Hebraisms of this Incredible life-giving Book is like a man kissing his Bride through a veil. It is true.Torah means ‘instruction’ and comes from the root word yarah which is an archery term meaning ‘to HIT the mark’.  If you want to take your personal AND group study somewhere it’s likely never been before, you’ll find that uncovering these rich Hebrew Treasures is what you’ve been missing!  You’ll learn about your calling as Ezer KenegdoMerea, and being a student of The Living Word.  You are called-out, Woman!  This is ‘discipleship redefined’.


  • Divine Fire (The Revelation of YOU in Genesis 2) – This is a closer look of Genesis 1-3 and the PRESCRIPTION that G-d made WOMAN AND MAN to be as opposed to our DESCRIPTION, what we became when we chose to accomplish something other than G-D’s Holy Instruction to us.   This Divine Message is FULL OF HOPE for every relationship you have and will have – including the closest one, yourself! This will impact your marriage, your motherhood, your neighborhood, your livelihood and your every living moment!  Ask me about hosting DIVINE FIRE in your home or church! Here are a few testimonies from a DIVINE FIRE FOR COUPLES/FAMILIES:

  1. Can’t wait to see how He uses you to enrich the lives of an expanding circle of women. I thought at this stage of my life I had heard most everything – then I met you and it was as if God opened a door and said, “consider this – you are half blind.”

    Blessings on this next journey as you walk with Jeshua as he opens the eyes of more women . . .

  2. Carmen truly is a blessing I didn’t know I needed. She has a way of hitting you with much needed truth in such a GRACEFUL way. Her counsel has pushed me to seek God all the more for freedom that begins within me and flows into all of my relationships. For so long I had it backwards. I would highly recommend her for one on one counsel or a speaker at your next women’s event. She is also an exceptional teacher! 🙂

  3. It was without a doubt the hand of God that led me to study under Carmen’s direction almost four years ago. We had just moved to Dallas and I was going throug what I like to call my desert time. I was at the lowest I have ever been in my life and the only answer to start healing was drawing closer to the Lord in my daily life. Studying the Torah and Hebrew with her has allowed me to dig deeper than I ever thought my faith and understanding could go! Carmen has now offered one on one discipleship which means I get her all to myself! Today was our first meeting and it just reinforced what my heart always knew and desired, to be encouraged to go even deeper and what that looked like. On a personal note I have found Carmen to be an authentic and genuine soul – she has such a desire to help women be freed from the bondage that sin entangles us in -through the healing words that come straight from the scriptures.

  4. Thank you for today. You opened my eyes and heart to a new clear path on how to read the bible. I want to read and learn more.

  5. What I loved most about today’s Divine Fire talk was that Carmen left me hungering for more! So often I have felt my faith to be the dreaded “lukewarm,” and her class on what it means to be Ezer Kenegdo gave me a much-needed kick in the spiritual pants. Truly enjoy the scholarship with which she approaches the Torah and its reflections in the New Testament!
