Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog. My name is Barbie (short for Barbara) and I live in Northern California. First and foremost, I am a child of the King of Kings and have been marked by the love of a relentless God who will never stop pursuing me. I have captured His heart and He delights in me. I live an imperfect life, but I know an absolutely perfect God. It is only by His grace that I am given the strength to accomplish all that I do each day.
I have been married 25 years to an amazing man and we have four beautiful children and a son-in-love who pursue the Lord passionately in worship and prayer.
I work full time as a Pastoral Administrator and assist in the Children’s Equipping Center at Convergence House of Prayer. I also just began homeschooling my 13yo full time this year and am learning to navigate this new path. Life is busy, but I am learning to slow down and notice the beauty that God has placed all around me.
My Freshly Brewed Life is a place for you to come and savor the aroma of God’s love and a place for your soul to wake up to the promise of a new day, where His truth and love abounds, and where you will be constantly reminded of who you are, and whose you are. I believe that each day is a freshly brewed gift from the Lord and that He has hidden treasures for us to find! I trust that as I share my life with you, you will find rest and peace in knowing that a loving God holds you in the palm of His hand. He adores you!
Some of my passions are: Worship, the Prayer Room, Coffee, reading, writing, painting and spending time with family and friends.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you will come back soon!
