God, You show me the truth."
This was Barbara's prayer after reading Deuteronomy 18: 9 - 14 "... There shall not be found among you anyone ... who practices witchcraft ..., or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead..."
Dedicated to the occult while in the womb, Barbara lived under a dark cloud of spiritual struggle and turmoil. Born in communist Cuba, she came to the United States with her father and two siblings at the age of four. They left her mother and three other siblings behind. It would be 23 long years before the family would be reunited.
Barbara did not know that her medium/divination involvement opened the door to the deep things of the occult. Pursued by a woman involved in witchcraft who was seeking to kill her, she desperately sought God's help.
While sitting alone on the last pew of a church, Barbara cried out to the Lord, and He heard her prayer. Through the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, she was led in the sinner's prayer. At that moment, the Lord delivered her from the kingdom of darkness and transferred her into the kingdom of His Son, Jesus Christ. Today, the one cry of Barbara's heart is:
"I want to know you Lord."
Barbara's passion for the Lord and His word will challenge you to live a life set apart for Him. Her engaging style of inspirational teaching, and heart warming stories of experiencing God - leave women encouraged, challenged, and changed. Women easily connect with Barbara because of her honesty and transparency in sharing the triumphs and tragedies of her life. Barbara is a wife, mother, graduate of She Speaks, and president of Perfecting the Heart Women's Ministries.
