Meet Our Board

Caroline Harries (President + founder) founded Moms in the Making back in June of 2013, one year into her journey of desiring to become a mom. She has a heart for those who are waiting on breakthrough from the Lord. Her unwavering faith is evident as she believes for her own miracle of children. She delights in encouraging women through her internationally followed blog and book, In Due Time, as well as through Moms in the Making. In 2017, she quit her corporate world job to pursue Moms in the Making full-time. When she isn’t blogging or encouraging people with truth, you can find Caroline traveling the world with her husband or staying active by working out and competing in triathlons. She holds a degree in finance and marketing from Baylor University in Texas, where she and her husband live. @TrustingInDueTime

Melanie Murphy (Vice President) looks at life as an opportunity to celebrate! With a message of hope and a heart to see people walk in freedom, she encourages audiences to mark each “Confetti Moment” with joy and festivity. A member of the Dallas chapter of Moms in the Making, and a member of the Board, Melanie and her husband Andy continue to believe that God will make good on his promise of bringing them a family. After more than seven years of waiting for babies, she’s all to familiar with knowing “God’s ways are not our ways”, However, Melanie says no matter the frustration or what she’s seen with here eyes, she knows – Jesus doesn’t waste our time and obedience is always worth it.

When she’s not on stage as a keynote speaker, Melanie is behind the microphone as a voice actor. With over 15 years storytelling experience, Melanie gives voice to commercials, eLearning, corporate narrations and more. Her versatile sound can be heard representing brands such as The Container Store, Shutterstock and GoDaddy. She’s a loud laugher, hard worker and straight shooter… and if ever you have a chance to work with her, plan to have fun. Things that bring Melanie joy: champagne, disco balls, flowers for any reason, clean sheet night, live music, beach vacations (in the shade), homemade chocolate chip cookies, writing in green ink… and of course, confetti (but not in her house!) @TheHeartofMommy

Jessica Colwell (Secretary) is a Dallas native. Her journey to motherhood has been greatly impacted by Moms in the Making since she started attending the Dallas group in 2014. Her breakthrough came in 2015 when she identified herself as a daughter in Christ and not her diagnosis. In the fall of 2016 she became a Mom Made and her passion for this ministry has not stopped. She now sits on the Board of Moms in the Making as Secretary. In addition to helping out with all things Moms in the Making, she works full-time and enjoys spending time with her husband and miracle daughter, Josie. She is passionate about Jesus and loves listening to worship music. You can see Jessica’s testimony here@jessica.s.colwell

They are confidently trusting in God’s timing and believing that He will do it again… and soon!
