Barb shares her journey from victim to victor with humor and transparency. Although she was a victim of childhood sexual abuse, she refuses to be defined by what happened to her.
Christ came to bind the broken-hearted and set the captive free. As one whose heart was broken by abuse, then imprisoned by pain, Barb knows the path to Freedom holds many pitfalls. She hopes to take years off your journey. There are no quick fixes or worn-out clichés in her teaching, just creative word pictures and God’s truth. Her insights diffuse the fog of pain, and bring lasting hope that only comes from God.
“The only way out is through and the only way through is Jesus. All too often we look at our pain without knowing how to handle it. All that does is make it worse. You have to be able to swim before you jump into the ‘pool of pain.’”
Barb explores Satan’s tricks and traps, used against those who have been deeply hurt. She exposes shame and places it where it belongs – squarely on the abuser. She explains how abuse causes quirks and rules about life. She extracts Bible truths about who God is and who we are.
Barb has experienced the freedom that comes from running to Jesus. She has learned to live daily in the wonder of what Christ has done. Her joyful life testifies of God’s goodness to His daughters (and sons!)
As a new creation in Christ, YOU are a caterpillar transformed into a butterfly. Barb won’t help you be a better caterpillar—she will teach you how to fly! Be who God has created you to be: daily walk in His strength, work with His Power, and share in His healing.
Coming from varied backgrounds, struggles and triumphs, our speakers want to encourage you that there is hope and victory in Jesus!
