In 2004, Watson founded and facilitated Poetic Praise. This Christian-based literary event was a vehicle to give amateur writers, aspiring poets and publishers a platform to learn, grow and network. Proceeds from this event provided new undergarments to homeless and underprivileged children throughout metro Atlanta.
As an author, Carolyn feels blessed to have penned: Thinking Positive in a Negative World and Clay In The Potter’s Hand; and co-authored: Conversations of Courage “Stories of Success, Hope & Possibility.” She is a premier writer for Zoe Life Inspired ~ A Daily Devotional book series. Her real-life compilations have been featured yearly since its inaugural release in 2012, with the 2017 edition hitting the market in late November, 2016. Carolyn is equally excited about the release of her 2017 book entitled: Sugar, Spice & Everything Christ “Understanding the Wealth of a Woman’s Worth.”
Over the years, Watson’s voice talent has graced various projects. And as an aspiring actress she starred in several stage play productions. She recently wrote and directed a documentary for New Life Church entitled: Living in Liberia. While in Atlanta, she is busy operating her daily labor of love: H. O. M. E., Inc. (Helping Oppressed Mothers Endure). Carolyn established this 501(c)3 organization to aid single mothers in rebuilding their lives after divorce, domestic violence and experiences of hardship. H.O.M.E. provides new and gently used furniture as means of starting over; starting anew.
Carolyn is incredibly grateful to be a mother and grandmother. She resides in Lithonia, Georgia, with her husband, Leotis, of 31 years who is still the adoring love of her life and the wind that enables her to soar in all the Lord calls her to. One of Carolyn’s strongest beliefs is: “No matter life’s circumstance … there’s a reason for that.”
