Carisa Gourley (blessedmommy)

Joined 10 years ago from Oklahoma City Metro, Oklahoma




Also follow me on:

In introduction, my proper name is Carisa Gourley. I am a Christian and I love Jesus very much! He has made my life worth living.

I play the piano at church and for the sheer enjoyment of it. I compose music and sing. I love to cook, read, and spend time with my family. I enjoy writing immensely!

I am a blessed wife; my dear husband is a wonderful man and I love him very much! He has made me the proud mother of 4 beautiful children (3 boys & 1 daughter)! These precious children are the joy of my life and my full-time job. I do everything from changing diapers or kissing boo boos to teaching my kids in our homeschool!

I also have angels in Heaven that I've lost to miscarriage. I believe with all my heart that I will be reunited with them some day. Read my story by visitng my hub dedicated to my experience.

I also like to use alternative medicine when possible. I take herbs and enjoy reading about, learning about and trying natural approaches to health and well-being.

HubPages is a great place! It's a useful outlet to share information or to vent your feelings. You can also earn a passive income like I do! I get paid every month! Join us!

      (I'm sorry if there is another post somewhere on this but I couldn't find one). Have payments been delayed today?  I still haven't received payment today and was just wondering.

      Thank you, HubPages!

      Just wanted to let the staff at HubPages know that I really appreciate the efforts that you have put forth recently.  Since you made the subdomain possible, my traffic has increased and my earnings have shot up to about a 100% increase from what they were running as of late.  I apologize...

      I'm feeling very discouraged with HP

      7 years ago

      I'm so confused and upset with my earnings here on HP.  I was going along fine, making around $200 monthly in adsense with only a slight decrease after Panda.  I only had around 64 hubs at the time, so I didn't think that was too bad.Then, I enabled HP ads and my adsense almost...

      Has anyone had this?  I haven't been able to open my mouth all the way for about 3-4 years.  At the present, I can only open it about 1/4 inch wide. (No joke)!  I finally broke down and saw a dentist who in turn sent me to a mouth and jaw surgeon.  He says that my articular...

      How did my affiliate setting get changed?

      10 years ago

      I have never made ANYTHING off of eBay or Amazon but I do fairly well with Adsense.  I wondered why I was never showing earnings and not even any clicks on my other affiliates.  I decided to check my affiliate settings and both eBay and Amazon had the wrong code numbers.  I'm not...

      Someone is Impersonating HubPages

      10 years ago

      I have received at least two separate e-mails that were supposed to be from HubPages that I know were not.  These e-mails look exactly like the ones that HubPages send out that tell your stats and features a Hubber.  The reason I know that they are not from HubPages is because my stats...

      Copying and Pasting from blogs

      10 years ago

      Hi.  I used to blog a little before I started HubPages.  My blogs were more like articles and this is one reason why I was glad to find Hubpages. I have deleted all my blogs except for two, and I have copied and pasted a few of my articles and made hubs out of them.  I was wondering,...

      I had someone leave some nice comments on a couple of my hubs and they were automatically shown as spam and automatically denied without my doing it.   I went ahead and approved one of the comments, and the next time I checked it was automatically marked spam again and denied.  I...

      Hi.  I was wondering if I post a comment on my own hub as a response to another comment made by someone else will this negatively affect my Hub score?
