Hi. My name is Barb. I write to help people live lives of joy. I think we’ve forgotten how to live lives with integrity, purpose, and just plain happiness. People are stressed and tired, sick and unhealthy, literally and spiritually. I want to help, if I can.

I’m a church secretary, wife, mother of 3 and recently a grandma. I’ve been happily married for over 35 years. I used to teach character education to teens at the local Y. I also have a strong faith in God and reference Him often. Faith is the first place to start in everything with this life. None of this makes me an expert, but I’ve learned a thing or two over the course of my life and I’d like to share it with you. So if you’re ready, read through some of my posts, apply some of the suggestions and exercises. See if they don’t help in some way.

“Be somebody you can be proud of on the inside, then radiate that to the outside.”—Barb Pequignot
