Hi, I'm Carisa
WHERE I COME FROM
I grew up in Davis, Oklahoma on the historic Fort Arbuckle where my Dad raised cattle and farmed alfalfa hay. I attended Davis Public Schools where I was very active in sports, cheerleading, and various clubs and organizations during my school years. After graduating high school in 2000, I attended college until going to work for the Chickasaw Nation where I met my husband, Greg. We were married in 2003, and we made a commitment to keep our children at home if at all possible. I have loved being a homemaker, caretaker, and teacher to our children. We now have a 15, 14, 8, and 3 year old living at home. We also have 4 older children, most of them now married, and we have 7 grandchildren.
Where I Am Going
I am a Christian, a wife, a mother, and a Grassroots Republican, but I am also a woman who has had an abortion. Thoughts and prayers concerning abortion have been woven throughout my entire life over the last 20 years. On April 21, 2018, my family and I began a prayer meeting for the ending of abortion in Oklahoma at our local library. I grew up around agriculture, I have family in the oil industry, and I attended one of the best school systems in our state. I know the importance of a strong economy and the value of quality education, but the absolute first order of business must be to end abortion in our state. We can do it Oklahoma!
America Has Been Here Before
Words of Martin Luther King Jr.
"It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can stop him from lynching me and that's pretty important."-MLK
In the same way, not all babies will be loved and wanted, but the law can stop them from being aborted.
