More About Barbara Ann Gareis

Barbara has a unique offering in that her special needs cat "Bruiser" joins her when she speaks. Bruiser was neglected, abandoned, and abused before he was rescued by Barbara's husband in 2015. The story of Bruiser's rescue coupled with Barbara's testimony and faith during adversity paints a picture of hope, love, compassion, acceptance, and forgiveness.

In addition to speaking, Barbara is the author of four books and blogs at sharinghope.net. She has spoken at women's conferences, schools, youth groups, author events, book festivals, and church functions, as well as participated in publishing industry discussion panels. Barbara has been a leader of the women's ministry team at Shadyrest Bible church. She has also been interviewed on several radio stations and podcasts.
