Carol Barnier

Carol Barnier is a fresh, fun, and popular conference speaker unlike any you have heard before. Her objective is to have the wit of Erma Bombeck crossed with the depth of C.S. Lewis, but admits that most days, she only achieves a solid Lucy Ricardo with a bit of Bob the Tomato.

She is a frequent guest commentator on Focus on the Family’s Weekend Magazine broadcast where she has spoken on a variety of humorous topics ranging from not being ready to be a “Titus 2” woman to why angels need a new public relations manager. While her humor will have you leaning sideways, her faith is solid stuff. Whether speaking about her first born son’s thirteen surgeries, her homeschooling challenges, her family’s many ADHD challenges, or her own walk from being a God-denying atheist to a most grateful recipient of God’s amazing grace, this woman speaks from the heart. She knows why she knows what she knows.

Carol is the author of three books about dealing with (or possessing) a non-linear mind in a linear world: How to Get Your Child Off the Refrigerator and On To Learning; If I’m Diapering a Watermelon, Then Where’d I Leave the Baby?; and The Big WHAT NOW Book of Learning Styles.

While she can be quite serious, probably the best description of her is what you find on her business cards: “Delightful Speaker, Entertaining Author, Adequate Wife, Pitiful Housekeeper”. Come hear Carol for the insight, the experience, and the fun; but most of all, come hear what God had in mind when He created each of us as He did.
