Alice Sanders, Purchasing Manager

Barb Boswell has been blessed with the gift of telling a story well. She uses humor, real life and a perceptive ability to draw truths out of stories she tells in such a way that her listeners are touched and changed by what she says. She has great energy and a sense of fun when engaging the wide variety of audiences she speaks to. At the same time there is always purpose in her presentation provoking her listeners to think on a deeper level. Barb has a sincere and authentic relationship with God and she lives her faith in a humble and real way. She’s fun to listen to and guaranteed to make you think. It’s a winning combination!

Barb led our women's retreat on 'The Gift of Encouragement', and she was wonderful! I definitely felt encouraged, and felt able to be encouraging to others. I would definitely recommend her for a future retreat.

I would highly recommend Barb Boswell for any Ladies’ event! She brings the truth of the Word of God, along with some humor and experiences from her life. She is very enjoyable to listen to, but most importantly you hear a message that you can take to heart.
Barb is willing to assist the inexperienced with planning, budgeting, and advertising advice and resources. This takes away that ‘fear’ and instills that ‘can do’ attitude in those planning the event. You feel that you haven’t just “hired a speaker” but have a co-worker that cares that your event is a success.

I’ve been privileged to speak with Barb Boswell and hear her message of
faith. I love Barb! She is real; funny; and always points the listener and reader to
Jesus. I leave her presence feeling encouraged and armed with more answers to life’s
dilemmas. Because truly, Barb’s contagious strength is from the Lord.

Barb is a jewel. She is down to earth, walks the walk, not afraid to make a point, has lived through various trials, a good friend, and a beloved community member. But most of all, she loves the Lord!

Barb is an awesome speaker. At Relay events she brings hope to every survivor in attendance. Her experience as a survivor makes her a perfect fit. At Women's teas or other church functions, her humor puts the audience at ease. As does her rule not to wear shoes while speaking! Her love for Lord is felt throughout her sharing. She's down to earth & easy to follow. I look forward to attending her events. Her books are fun & easy to read.

I first met Barb Boswell when she was a guest speaker at our Luminaria Walk at Relay For Life. She had my attention almost instantly... After that she spoke at the Valley Christian Fellowship Ladies Retreat which I attended... From that time on I listened to her every chance I could get and have been honored to call her friend... She has a very unique way of speaking where you actually get caught up in her themes. I believe that it is a very personal, natural way that she has of bringing God into her life and relating how HE has a way of steering her in the direction that he wants and needs her to go. As she laughingly admits, it's not always the way in which she was headed. She is one of very few speakers who I am always sorry to hear her end... If you look into her smile you are very keenly aware that she and God have become good friends. Any chance that you may have to hear her I strongly advise you to grab onto it...

Barb Brewster Boswel is a phenomenal speaker. She has a gift to speak with a sense of humor and a way to keep the audiences interest.
She is very relaxed as she speaks which makes the audience be relaxed.
After her talks she is more than willing to speak personally with anyone afterwards.
Barb is a Christian woman with a heart of gold and her books have been inspirational to me. I couldn't ask for a better friend. Thank you Barb.

I've read all Barb's books and heard her speak on numerous occasions. My favorite thing about her is that she is REAL, and very down to earth. She is truly sold out for Christ, and able to share His love in a way that is very relatable & always hits home.

I recommend Barb HIGHLY to speak at any women's gathering. She is true to the calling of the Lord & serves Him as best she can with her humor & testimony. He has blessed her mightily to speak from her heart in a very engaging way, through her own experiences & how she sees God in the every day experiences of life. I'm proud to call her my friend.

Barb is a wonderful combination of deeply spiritual and genuinely funny. She shares the gospel message in an authentic way and uses many down to earth examples. I absolutely love the way she speaks bare-footed since she considers herself on sacred ground. I am confident that many people have found, or found again, their way to God thru Barb's testimony.

Barb has been the featured speaker at two events I helped coordinate. She is a warm, humorous presenter who shares her faith by being herself-a little zany, but always walking with the Lord! She gives hope and inspiration with her upbeat yet meaningful presentations. Having worked with Barb to plan our events, I also can say she is really true to what she presents-a joy-filled, thoughtful woman of God! We love her!

Barb spoke at my church in Roanoke, Va a little over a year ago. Barb is a lady full of life. The love of Christ shines through her as she delivers each message. Not only is she a wonderful speaker, but an author who shares her own personal life and struggles, and how her dependence in Christ has carried her through each circumstances. The ladies loved her down to earth transparency and personality.

I have known Barb since we were freshmen in high school.. I have heard her speak and share the gospel. Also, I have read her books and have given some as gifts to women that I felt needed to experience some of her words during their troubling times. Barb speaks from the heart with a smile, some laughs and some tears. I would highly recommend Barb for your next event.

I am so pleased that Barb has continued to let God use her and her talents as a speaker and writer. As a friend and colleague in ministry, I am impressed with Barb's balance between humility and conviction. She speaks and writes from her heart, and always in a transparent manner that makes you feel like a true friend, a real confidant. She's real and authentic in a world that is often anything but ...I am sure you will find her words to be a Spirit-filled breath of fresh air.

Barb has the unique ability to immediately capture and audience, hold their attention with humor, and deliver a life lesson straight from the heart. I have had the pleasure of hearing Barb speak to senior citizens, church congregations and women's conferences. She has a strong relationship with her Savior and seeks to do His will, not her own. Barb's stories will touch your heart, make you laugh and in the process, bring to face to face with Jesus Christ.

Be prepared for a good laugh -- and maybe even a good cry when you read or listen to Barb. God has given her the gift of delivering the message of His love and grace in the everyday-ness of life. When you least expect it, she'll deliver a zinger to make you sit up and take notice. You'll get to know her Jesus in a very personal way.
