I love following God more than anything else in life. As a Bible teacher, speaker and author, I’m passionate about motivating and equipping women to apply the truths of God’s Word to the practical realities and challenges they face in today’s culture, encouraging them to live with God-empowered strength and dignity. I’ve seen God’s faithfulness firsthand through my battles with anxiety, family addiction issues, and learning to see myself as God’s beautiful and valuable daughter.
Rather than teach audiences to follow God to get what they want, my purpose is to inspire audiences to discover that God is all they need. I enjoy speaking at conferences and events across the country and internationally, including national platforms like the Aspire Women’s Events.
I am the author of I'm Waiting, God: Finding Blessing in God's Delay, Joshua: Winning the Worry Battle and Beautiful Already: Reclaiming God’s Perspective on Beauty Bible studies and the books Winning the Worry Battle: Life Lessons from the Book of Joshua and Enough Already: Winning Your Ugly Struggle with Beauty. I blog regularly at BarbRoose.com and host the “Better Together” podcast.
I live in NW Ohio and I am the proud mama of three amazing adult daughters. A perfect day for me includes sleeping in, taking a long walk, shopping for new shoes and enjoying a big bowl of chocolate-peanut butter ice cream.
