About Barbara Straub

I am an everyday woman saying “Yes!” to Jesus as He calls me to minister to women through writing and teaching.

I am a wife, mother, stepmother, stepdaughter, step-sister, step-aunt, step-niece, basically everything step except step-grandmother, which I fully expect to be one day.

My life has been filled with the many ups and downs that the Apostle Paul assures me will bring strength and maturity, although there are many days I wonder how that is working.

God has given me an incredible passion to teach His word, equip women through discipleship and prayer and develop leaders to repeat the process to expand God’s kingdom. I have been very blessed to watch the Lord work as He uses me to minister and mentor women who struggle with many of the same issues I have walked through.

I am an author and speaker of bible studies, retreats, conferences, workshops, luncheons, stepfamily classes, etc.  I am also a certified Stepfamily Coach through The Stepfamily Foundation. I am the founder of of Shepherd Her Ministries and the co-founder of Winning Stepfamilies.
