“It’s not so much what happens to us…rather, it’s more how we view the things that happen to us.”  That’s the message Connie Carey, author, musician, Bible study teacher, and performance keynote speaker, wants her audience to take home with them. 
With her signature blend of humor, music, and rich content, Connie helps others  Laugh More and Live Better by viewing life’s challenges from a renewed perspective.
“Your spirit will be encouraged, your soul will be refreshed, and you will laugh until your sides hurt.”
Because of her diverse talents, Connie is at home customizing her message to fit your organization, whether the topic is light or heavy, corporate or faith-based.
Connie partners with corporations and health-based organizations looking for a dose of humor, music, and simple strategies to reduce stress and increase productivity. 
And she partners with faith-based organizations to bring a hope-inspiring, joy-giving message that God is with us, weaving a mysterious, yet beautiful tapestry behind the scenes of our suffering.   We can trust Him, especially when it’s darkest.
After earning music degrees from Shorter College and Southern Methodist University, Connie enjoyed twenty years as a music teacher, from preschool to college level.
Connie is a member of the National Speakers Association and the author of Falling Up (for which she was named “Georgia Author of the Year"), a powerful guide for those walking through the loss of a loved one, especially to suicide.
Marrying John transformed Connie from a single girl to a grandmother … and she loves it!  When she’s not speaking or making music, Connie is usually trying unsuccessfully to teach her dog new tricks.  


Many musicians perform beautiful music.
Many entertainers make people laugh.
Many speakers deliver solid principles for living…
Connie does all three!

Laugh More.  Live Better
The pressures of life and work can take a toll on our good humor, productivity, and outlook in general.  Could the people in your organization or workplace use a little less stress?  Medical research has proven that humor can help people be more productive, resilient, healthy, and happy.  Through humor, music, evidence-based content, and real-life solutions to situational stressors, Connie helps people find a fresh perspective on old problems.  And who doesn't need to laugh while they learn better ways to deal with stress?  This hilarious yet informative session is great for employees, volunteers, organizations, and any group that has human beings!
Falling Up:  Lessons Learned on the Way Down
(From her book by the same name.)
Connie shares her hilarious skydiving experience (complete with skydiving video!) as a metaphor for life.  Turns out hurlting toward the ground at 120 mph gave her a few insights about life!
Expertly weaving music, humor, and inspiration, Connie helps others see that when heartbreak hits, it is possible to do more than just fall.  You can "fall up."  You can make it to the other side of grief stronger in your broken places.  Connie's insight comes not just from skydiving, but also from her own journey of grief in losing her father to suicide.  She inspires audiences with this, her most requested signature program.
As Connie shares four practical steps to deal with loss and grief, she will help you:
Recognize the presence of God in the midst of your storm.
Believe God more than your feelings.
Replace the "if onlys" with truth, confidence, and praise.
Discover biblical evidence that, contrary to popular belief, God DOES give us more than we can handle -- and why that is good news!
Understand how what we go through isn't only to benefit ourselves, but also to help others.
Radically renew your perspective on significant loss while recognizing the reality of it.
