Joshua: Winning the Worry Battle (Bible Study)

In this six-week Bible study on the Book of Joshua, we will join God’s people as they arrive on the edge of the promised land only to find themselves in hostile territory, faced with fear and uncertainty. As we dig into the story of how Joshua and the Israelites claimed God’s promised victory, we’ll discover that winning the worry battle requires more than having faith; it requires learning to fight in faith! Following their bold, courageous footprints, we’ll learn how to fight in faith as we internalize God’s promises, draw strength from God’s faithfulness,...

Winning the Worry Battle (book)

Many Christians do not have a full understanding of what it means to fight the good fight of faith. They try to live by faith but in the face of everyday trials and failures, they find themselves disillusioned and discouraged, wondering if they have done something wrong or if living by faith only works for others. The problem for most is simply a lack of understanding regarding what faith is and how it works. This book, inspired by the Book of Joshua, reviews three tools a person can develop to Fight In Faith: 1) embracing God’s promises, 2) courage and commitment under pressure and 3)...

Rebecca Perkins, Women's Ministry Leader

Barb spoke at our Women's Fall Kick-Off Event for our small groups. She was engaging, humorous, and so authentic in her presence and message. God's Word was her central focus, and she was not afraid to challenge us and bring us out of our comfort zone. As a result, we have a lot of women involved in our fall small groups, doing the Joshua study written by Barb, "Winning the Worry Battle." May God continue to bless you, Barb, and use you for His glory and His honor!

Barb Roose was fantastic! Her passion for God, and her obedience to speaking His truth was powerful. She was great to work with before and after the event. She was confident in how she carries herself, but humble and personal in dealing with the lives of those she served. A few of our leaders have picked up her materials and have stayed in touch, as they have been spiritually impacted by the truth of God that Barb has shared. A servant of God, full of hope and truth.

We contracted with Reiso Resources for Barb to conduct a management and supervision session on communication and she knocked it out of the park with her "Five Tools for a High Five Leader!" By far one of the best educational sessions our team has ever participated in. Barb was engaging, dynamic and very personable and made you feel very comfortable to participate openly. The concepts she presented are being used every day by our team and we are definitely seeing a difference! We highly recommend Barb for your leadership teams.

From beginning to end, Barb was nothing short of amazing. A baby ministry, we are still new to hosting speakers and Barb was full of grace. What took me most by surprise was her honesty about how she decides if she will do an event. Her desire to put Jesus first, to make sure it was God first, her second - I was blown away. The day of our summer event, Barb showed up prepared, on time and was the perfect mix of personal and professional with our guests. I was thankful for Barb for being respectful to the day's schedule. Upon review of the surveys guests filled out, the response to her two part talk on Surrender and Self Discipleship were all very positive. If you are considering Barb, be prepared to feel challenged to do better every time you interact with her. She was such a blessing to my women's ministry and the women who heard her. A genuine lady - walks the talks she gives!

Barb was so much more than a guest speaker at our women's event last month! She has a genuine love for our women's committee and helped us with the planning process along the way. I can't express enough how giving of herself she is. In addition, the feedback we received from women who attended our event hands down included their love of Barb. Her love of Jesus and connecting women to Him through her topic (C. A. R. E. S.) , energy and enthusiasm is a blessing!

Barb Roose was the speaker at our morning women's retreat at our church. Area churches were all invited. We had close to 80 women attend. Barb spoke with a spiritual depth that only comes from years of experience and gaining wisdom. She was well prepared, dynamic and addressed areas all women need to hear but seldom deal with - how to take care of ourselves: clothing, exercise, appetite, rest, and being grateful. All these areas have both physical and spiritual applications to help us be all God wants us to be! Women left encouraged, energized and refreshed. Women ask to have Barb back, and that's the highest compliment to a good speaker.

Since it was a workplace setting, she relayed Biblical principles, such as kindness, without making our attendees feel "churched." I received multiple, unsolicited feedback from the audience that they loved the content she presented, the conversations she provoked, and her delivery style. I would highly recommend Barb to speak in a professional setting.

Barb's message about God's view of His children's beauty deeply touched all who attended our women's conference by revealing another level of Gods love. The level I'm speaking of is the intense level which enables all who listen to think differently about old habits, negative narratives and unwelcome comments from people regarding a woman's appearance. She's the real deal! We can hardly wait to work with Barb again. Barb provides custom-fit inspirational messages of God's love that deeply touch women. Not only is Barb gifted with words but she also provides invaluable resources for event planning, recommendations on graphic print media, promotional video, marketing and presenting our Women's Ministry event. It is so easy to plan an event with Barbs wisdom and knowledge.
