About Barbara


Ministries: Christian counseling. Outreach. Speaking at Christian and community organizations.

Passion: Writing “to glorify God!” Becoming an image of Jesus Christ. I enjoy walks by the water, good music, and clean movies. Spending time with my son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren give me joy – Darrin, Melody, Tarrin, Kameron, and Jaylen.

Favorite scripture: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13

Philosophy: To be a good leader, you have to be a good servant.

Mission: Empower women who are victims of domestic abuse.  “Domestic Abuse hurts and destroys individuals and families!”

Having been in an abusive relationship, my novels address subtle spousal abuse that began in pre-marriage – my first book – Bedeviled.

Continues after marriage in the sequel – Wormwood.  Scriptural references and tips are included to help assist victims in dealing with negative relationship issues.

A short story was published in the spring 2016 edition of the online literary magazine Magzter. The summer issue of Bards and Sages literary magazine. And Milwaukee Writer’s Circle 2016 Anthology.
