What is OCD?
OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) falls under the category of an anxiety order. It is a series of intrusive unwanted thoughts that are followed by a compulsion to relive the fear and anxiety of that thought being or coming true.

“Physical healing lasts a LIFETIME… Spiritual healing lasts an ETERNITY…”
I want you to understand this is an extreme anxiety disorder. Even with its intense and debilitating thoughts Jesus can help you overcome and experience recovery and healing. My own experience with OCD has inspired me to create Eunoia5 ministries, which is YOUR ministry. My hope and prayer is that Eunoia5 ministries will provide all the tools and resources for you, that Jesus provided me throughout my journey with OCD.

I met Ronda about a month after being diagnosed with OCD. My main themes were religious scrupulosity and ROCD. She was my first OCD friend and really gave me hope that recovery was possible. I was looking at a woman who had faced down OCD and came out on top. I knew that Holy Spirit could and would lead me through to healing and recovery; just like He did for her. Having someone in my corner who understood what I was going through helped me keep putting one foot in front of the other when I felt like I couldn't anymore. I'm thankful for her story and her friendship!!!
There are just people that God brings in your life for specific reasons. Ronda is definitely one of those people that God uses to speak into your life to bring clarity, biblical perspectives, and a listening ear. She takes the time to build a personal relationship with intentionality and works hard to create a safe and comfortable place to be vulnerable. She has a pure heart for people and for the Lord.
I was Immensely blessed that Ronda took the time out of her very busy schedule to get to know me and my personal struggle with OCD. We talked for quite a few hours on the phone. I was really taken back that Ronda had been walking so long in freedom from her own battle with OCD. Ronda is so willing and allows God to use her struggle, her pain and all the things that she went through, to help others and myself. With a heart of compassion there was such a sweet comforting peaceful atmosphere of fellowship in our similar struggles and pain. Ronda’s concern for me even after all the things that she had gone through in her life, I really felt comforted and even cared for. I’ve not had any friends close to me who understand OCD and that has been very lonely, Ronda offered to do what God would have her do…to encourage and help me. A great Blessing meeting Ronda Carroll.
Ronda is a powerful educator and friend all at the same time! Whenever you need someone to call, she is ready and willing to listen and talk you down from the height of OCD. Ronda’s integration of faith into these discussions helps you to believe in God's love for you. Ronda is trustworthy, compassionate, and VERY skilled!
I met Ronda as she as kicking off her ministry to help others with OCD. It was Gods timing that I met Ronda when I did. I was stuck in my recovery journey, questioning how I could have OCD and be saved! Salvation and OCD seemed mutuality excessive to me. Talking with Ronda and seeing the way she whole heartedly loves and trusts the Lord and yet had also journeyed with OCD herself was a huge encouragement to me. She helped me move forward in my recovery journey.
