Becky Carpenter, Founder ODC Ministries
Speaker | Writer | Teacher | Missionary
Becky Carpenter has been an educator for 25 years. Included in her experience is being a high school business & technology teacher, a Corporate Director of Education and Training, a Continuous Improvement Advisor for a Fortune 500 company and both a campus and district level public & private school administrator.
She believes educators are the true, unspoken missionaries, as they walk into a critical mission field every single day. Although she loved working with teenagers, her heart was called into her current role, serving full time in the field of ministry and missions. She is an ordained minister of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Becky is humbled at all the opportunities she’s given working with students and adults. She feels privileged and blessed to be given opportunities to speak to various churches, ladies conferences, youth events, businesses and other events about life-changing experiences. Becky is the founder of 'One Day Closer Ministries' where she is a Christian Motivational/Evangelistic Speaker who travels across the US and globally to bring uplifting and encouraging messages of perseverance and hope. She’s had the honor of speaking to students and ladies in the countries of Haiti, Honduras, and Guatemala.
Becky has been married to her husband, David for 28 years. When asked what is her greatest accomplishment, she will not hesitate to say it is her two beautiful daughters. Her oldest daughter Shelbi who graduated magna cum laude from Texas A & M University with a degree in Psychology. Shelbi is now a full-time elementary teacher while working on her master's degree in the field of social work. Shelbi is pursuing her dream to work with children who struggle with life's challenges and tragedy's.
Becky shares the journey that began in 2011 when her youngest daughter Skylar, at the age of 15, went home to be with Jesus as a result of a tragic car crash while traveling on a school trip. Becky was the Asst. High School Principal at the time and arrived on the scene to discover the one student fatality was her own daughter.
Becky is not a speaker who dwells on the tragedy, but rather shifts our perspective toward the light while traveling ‘through’ the darkest of times. She uses humor and laughter throughout her presentations and the audiences leave with both tears of laughter and tears of joy as she allows others to SEE joy and believe the HOPE that awaits those who follow Jesus.
Regardless of her resume, accomplishments, or travels, Becky is now known best as ‘Skylar’s mom.’ Skylar is changing the world...one person at a time.
