About Barbara


Ministries include Christian counseling, speaking and participating at Christian and community organizations. My passion is writing “to glorify God!” and becoming an image of Jesus Christ. I enjoy walks by water, good music, clean movies and spending time with my son and daughter-in-law – Darrin and Melody; grandchildren Tarrin, Kameron, and Jaylen; and extended family.

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.

I have a passion for women’s issues and a burden for victims of domestic abuse because “it hurts and destroys individuals and families!” Having been in an abusive relationship, I have written an intriguing fiction that addresses subtle spousal abuse that began in a pre-marriage relationship in my first book – “Bedeviled!” and continued after marriage in the sequel – “Wormwood!”  Scriptural references and tips are included to help readers assist victims dealing with relationship issues.

I also write a monthly devotional for Putting on the New and a Sunday verse meditation for Putting on the New. One of my short stories was published in the spring 2016 edition of the online literary magazine “Magzter” and another short story published in the summer issue of “Bards and Sages” literary magazine.
