sample quote

"There is help. There is happiness. There really is light at the end of the tunnel. It is the Light of the World, the Bright and Morning Star, the “light that is endless, that can never be darkened.”  It is the very Son of God Himself.

“Even if you cannot always see that silver lining on your clouds, God can, for He is the very source of the light you seek. He does love you, and He knows your fears. He hears your prayers. He is your Heavenly Father, and surely He matches with His own the tears His children shed.”

sample quote

"Our faith can help us be equally bold and fearless during the course of our respective journeys, whether we are parents working with a troubled child, a single parent trying to raise a worthy family, young people struggling to find a place in a wicked and confusing world, or a single person trying to make the journey through life alone. No matter how difficult the trail, and regardless of how heavy our load, we can take comfort in knowing that others before us have borne life’s most grievous trials and tragedies by looking to heaven for peace, comfort, and hopeful assurance. We can know as they knew that God is our Father, that He cares about us individually and collectively, and that as long as we continue to exercise our faith and trust in Him there is nothing to fear in the journey."

 

Elder M. Russell Ballard

"You Have Nothing to Fear from the Journey"

sample quote

"Perhaps you might think you are not needed, that you are overlooked or unwanted, that you are a nobody.  I am sincerely sorry if any (one) feels this way. Certainly you are not overlooked or unwanted by your Heavenly Father. He loves you. And I tell you with certainty that you are needed by your Church. Do you not know that “God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to [put to shame] the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to [put to shame] the things which are mighty”? Perhaps it is true that we are weak. Perhaps we are not wise or mighty. But when God works through us, no one and nothing can stand against us. This is why you are needed. You have your own special contribution to make, and God can magnify that contribution in a mighty way."

 

What People Are Saying

Barbara is an amazing speaker and brings a beautiful spirit with her when she sings. She spoke to our Stake Young Women Camp at Heber Valley as a guest speaker to our group of 100 young women and leaders. Her subject was “Your Unique Mission” and she spoke to the young women about finding their purpose and how much Heavenly Father loves them. It was absolutely a highlight of our week and a memorable, beautiful fireside. Listening to Barbara sing, surrounded by the beauty of nature at Heber Valley will remain a favorite part of my week at camp and a memory that I will not forget.

What Barbara shared with us this evening, at our stake’s High Priest Activity, was absolutely beautiful, in every way that matters. There is nothing I desire more in this life, than to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost and the Spirit was strongly present. The type of lyrics that I heard tonight, and the melodies that accompanied them, were a conduit to light. Barbara stood as a powerful witness of the Lord Jesus Christ. Her testimony, in word, in song, and in spirit will be long remembered.

Barbara came to do a combined fireside for the Relief Society and Young Women. I was touched by how personal and kind she was to me and the women of my ward. She sincerely wanted to uplift and encourage each sister through her words and music, and was so kind to talk to everyone afterwards. Barbara shared personal experiences, a slideshow with quotes and scriptures that engaged and involved those in the audience, and performed her own music. Her message of encouragement, hope, and seeking to find our own unique gifts that have been given to us, inspired us all! It was the perfect message that I and  the other women in my ward needed to hear in March of 2020! Many came up to me afterwards, thanking me for reaching out to Barbara.

Barbara visited our ward Relief Society and filled our souls with a deep, real (and REALLY needed) message of hope. She mixed relatable, personal stories with music to remind us Jesus Christ is the hope we need to lean into. I could feel her music was indeed her testimony and we were blessed to be lifted by her spirit and the Spirit she brought into the room that evening.

Barbara did an amazing job at our girl's camp kick-off.  She is very genuine and was able to really connect with the girls. Her message about spiritual gifts was very well done and the spirit was very strongly felt. She had us both laughing and crying as she gave her presentation. Her talent for singing topped it off- she has an amazing way of also inviting the spirit through music. This was the perfect way to start our girl's camp!!

Kristen - Lehi, Utah

Barbara has such an angelic voice and more importantly, she has the ability to invite a beautiful spirit to her firesides and devotionals. Barbara visited our Plainview Stake and presented a wonderful fireside for the Young Women. She gave wonderful advice and sang beautifully. The spirit was felt so strongly.
