=======

"The more you tie into God's deep and profound love for you and into His incredible mercy and grace, the more you will find yourself changing in ways you can't even yet imagine." --Barb Lownsbury

Get ready to meet Barb Lownsbury, a breath of fresh air in the world of women's Christian speakers. She's the kind of person you'd love to chat with over a cup of coffee – down-to-earth, relatable, and brimming with wisdom. From speaking and writing to leading and blogging, Barb does it all with a practical and uplifting approach. Her mission? To uplift women who've faced life's curveballs – the ones with a few "dented fenders" – and help them rock their God-given identities. Through her engaging talks and relatable stories, Barb shows these women how to confidently shine their light, becoming real-life examples of faith and resilience that event planners are itching to bring to their stages. Her messages are like a reassuring hug, reminding us to embrace our quirks and live out kindness and love.

Barbara effortlessly connects with people on a relatable and genuine level, making her a standout speaker and teacher. Her talks are like heartfelt conversations with a friend who really understands. She brings her own life experiences and moments from her ministry into her talks, captivating audiences with engaging stories, depth, and a sprinkle of humor. Her talks aren’t superficial; they’re brimming with down-to-earth tools that translate seamlessly into real life long after the event is over.  

Through her stories and wisdom, Barb helps us uncover the hidden strengths we often overlook within ourselves. It's like she's handing us a flashlight to navigate the darkness, underscoring that our faith empowers us with more resilience and potential than we’ve ever imagined.  She's here to remind us that our dented fenders are just a part of our unique story – and when we own them, we become the shining examples of faith, love, and resilience that the world needs.

With Barb, you're not just hiring a speaker; you're gaining a partner who's genuinely committed to enhancing your event. She brings a selection of thoughtfully prepared topics to choose from, and what's truly remarkable is her openness to craft personalized content that aligns seamlessly with your event's essence. Whether you opt for one of her engaging pre-designed topics or aim for something entirely unique, Barb's collaborative approach ensures your event will stand out. Your vision is the priority, and with Barb's expertise, together you can create an unforgettable experience for your audience.

Beyond her speaking engagements, Barbara is an author and entrepreneur, with a Bachelor’s degree in International History and a Master's degree in Education.  Her book, Using What’s Broken to Boldly Shine, is a must-read for anyone seeking transformation through life's trials. And if you're looking for a weekly dose of motivation, her blog is a go-to destination, offering encouragement and strength for the journey ahead.

Barb serves in various ministries in leadership capacities and is the Executive Director for The Dented Fender Ministry.  When she's not inspiring crowds, she's whipping up treats in the kitchen, soaking in the great outdoors, or hanging out with her family.  She calls Dayton, Ohio home, alongside her husband and their blended family of seven.

What a blessing it was to have Barb be a part of our women's retreat!  She was our main speaker but from the moment she walked into our lodge she immediately became a part of "us"!  She spent time mingling before the conference began and got to know the women of our church on a personal level.  So by the time she began to speak we all felt like she was "one of us"!  Her energy and passion was so contagious and her love for the Lord so apparent.  The message of Shine Boldly was just what our ladies needed to begin a new season of walking with the Lord.  What more can I say....Barb was everything and more than we expected!!

Cheryl Boggs

Barb was the keynote speaker for our first ladies conference this year! We worked together for months prior to drill down on topics, presentation and organization. She brought unique insight, ideas and experience to the table (most of which we utilized). She was very accessible when we needed guidance and forethought. We couldn’t have done it without her! She was dynamic in the planning stages and in her presentation, really giving attention to the message we wanted to convey. With her insight, wisdom and experience, she helped us to create the environment and message we were intent on communicating. Would recommend 10 out of 10 if you are considering working with her! Her message was powerful and timely! If you are looking for someone to help guide you through a first time process or just need someone who brings an effective and compelling biblical message, this is your gal! Couldn’t say enough about her character and integrity thought out the process. Highly recommend!

Kristi Potts Director of Women's Ministry

Barb is an outstanding communicator that leads from a place of vulnerability and honesty. She communicates in a way that resonates with women in a variety of settings, backgrounds, and life experiences. She will make you laugh, cry, feel known and understood in a large presentation format or in a small group discussion.

I have had the pleasure of hearing Barb Lownsbury speak on several occasions and every time I have been challenged, moved emotionally, and entertained. It's a rare combination to experience all of these traits in one speaker. When Barb speaks, you can tell that she has not only spent time preparing the content, she has spent time preparing with the Lord to deliver a message that is pertinent and challenging to her audience. Barb loves the Lord deeply and this love shines through in her words and her demeanor when she is sharing in front of groups. You will be blessed to have her speak at your event and, be careful, you might even find yourself being challenged in a way that brings you closer to Jesus.

Jennifer Shock, Women's Pastor

Barb is an engaging and authentic speaker who will challenge her listeners to embrace not only the mountaintop experiences but also the moments in the valley, where we are invited to listen to God's voice and trust Him to accomplish His purposes in our lives when we might not be able to see past the pain. She's fun and funny, vulnerable and passionate. Barb is a living example of someone who offers God her whole life and shows what is possible when we live in faith, not in fear.

Cindy L. Smith

Barb Lownsbury spoke at the Hope Alive! Women's Gathering in June and the women loved her! Barb is very relatable and wove her story throughout the time she shared, engaging the audience with her passion for Jesus and His word. She hung around afterwards and prayed with many of the women, and everyone left feeling hopeful and connected to each other and God. Barb is comfortable speaking to any size group, and they would benefit from what she shares and walk away refreshed. She is spirit led and doesn't promote herself; she promotes Jesus and His powerful healing!

Using What's Broken to Boldly Shine

None of us start off life saying, “I want to be a failure,” or “I want to grow up and get divorced someday,” or “Someday I hope I’ll become a drug addict, or a widow, or sleep around with lots of people, or fail at business, or go bankrupt.” Our childlike faith convinces us we’ll do better, that we’ll defy the odds somehow. But life has a way of showing up and kicking the tar out of that simple, childlike faith, doesn’t it?
