This encouraging and laughter-filled talk examines the many identities we women choose for ourselves during our life’s journey as child, wife and mom. Some fun emerges as Carol examines some Southern expressions from a Northern perspective. Yet the talk includes a serious sentiment that there has been a critical loss of “preciousness” in our culture, how we value things, including each other. Many Christian women are suffering an identity crisis. They determine their value by how their husbands, or their children, or their friends, or their church family sees them. And in doing so, they experience a critical loss of preciousness. Carol encourages women to make sure that, while they wear many hats, their core identity is as a precious child of God.
Speaker Information:Carol Barnier is a fresh, fun and popular conference speaker unlike any you’ve 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’s spoken on a variety of humorous topics ranging from not being ready to be a Titus woman (It’s the name: Titus. Anything that rhymes with Phlebitis is automatically suspect.) to why angels need a new public relations manager. She has been a guest on many radio programs, contributor to many magazines, and is a speaker at conferences nationwide.
