I’m Barbie, Managing Editor here at 5MinutesforFaith. I am so glad you stopped by! I live in Northern California with my husband of 22 years and our four children. I work full-time as the Pastoral Assistant at my church, which my husband and I helped to plant over 14 years ago. I enjoy teaching my 4-5 year olds in Sunday school, and minister in my local House of Prayer as a singer and intercessor.
I openly and honestly share from my heart about what God is speaking to me through His Word in order to bring hope and encouragement to others…

Hi – I’m Genny. I’m excited to be part of such a great team of women here and I’m glad you stopped by!
I’m married to Mike–my high school sweetheart, soul mate, and best friend–and we have two kids, our daughter (13) and our son (11).
Before becoming a mom, I was a manager at a global computer company and was happily climbing the corporate ladder. But having kids changed that. After making the decision to quit my job to be a stay-at-home mom, I rediscovered my passion for writing.
It’s funny how motherhood can do that to you. As you share experiences with your kids, you somehow get back in touch with who you were as a kid. Even as a very young child, I loved to read and write.
I’ve known about God my whole life, but it wasn’t until I was in college, struggling with an eating disorder, that He became personal to me. It was then…

Hi – I’m Katharine. I’m excited to be part of such a great team of women here and I’m glad you stopped by!
This is an amazing journey we are travelling! I am always glad to journey with others as we sift through pages and paragraphs and allow the God of the universe to write our stories! I’m Katharine. I’m Mom to four incredible kids, (22, 21, 19, &16) and wife to David (the best husband on the planet.) I love trying my hand at crafting, gardening, cooking and all things creative, but writing is my first love. A close second is good coffee in a great mug! We make our home in Ontario Canada. Formerly a preschool teacher then full time stay at home mom, I now spend most of my day’s blogging through life, love, laughter, creativity, family and faith. I am the author of two recently launched books, and an occasional speaker for women’s groups.

I’m a “midlife-mom” to two boys, ages 7 and 4. My husband and I will celebrate our 16th anniversary this summer. We’ve lived in all the west coast states and once again call California home.
Prior to focusing on being a wife and mom, I held jobs ranging from vacuum cleaner sales to TV news production to Dean of Girls at a boarding school to HR Director.
I suppressed my own dreams of writing for many years, figuring my sister was the ‘real’ writer in the family. But God prompted me to pursue publication a few years ago and, while there’s been a lengthy gap in my publishing history, He never let me move completely away from putting my heart for Him into words…

Hey Everybody! My name is Amy Wyatt and I live in Georgia with Greg, my absolutely incredible husband of 15 years. We dated for four years before we were married, so I have been with him over half my life! I have two precious children, Spencer age 8 and Mary Lyndsey age 4.
I am a Christian Women’s speaker traveling to churches throughout the Southeast. I love to share the testimony of the miracle we received when my son Spencer was born. Spencer had a stroke at birth and was pronounced dead, but God had other plans. His heart miraculously started beating again and doctors can’t explain what happened.
I also speak all over the country for a group called Epilepsy Advocates…
