“Barbara Vernoski spoke to our four-club circuit in September 2012. She was energetic, skillful, humorous and inspiring as she shared her life and challenges. She spoke in a way that touched lives and encouraged us to depend on God in every circumstance. She showed real caring by asking some of us to pray with her for the people who heard her message before she moved on to her next engagement.”

She has the ability to draw a crowd into her life story in a positive way even when she shares difficult times and situations.  Many lives were touched in a positive way as she spoke around the state.”

Through her coaching, Barbara was able to meet me where I was, partner with me to exceed my limits and reach my goals. Her strong sense of faith was critical for me as a Christian Coach to help me see God’s movement in areas of my personal and professional life that I was unaware of. She is an incredible cheerleader, teammate, and most importantly- coach! The best way to truly appreciate the value of Barbara’s coaching, is to partner with her yourself. It is truly a Blessing!”

“Barb has great knowledge. She loves to learn. Not just through the academic world (for that would just be knowledge) but also through embracing the lessons learned through the good, bad and ugly of life and using them for good. Nothing is wasted. That’s the application of knowledge. That’s wisdom.  That’s Barb. But not everyone can apply life’s lessons. It can be difficult to see the life lesson when one is in the pain of the circumstance. That often requires a good “unravel-er”; someone who can weave their way through the tangles of the heart, the knots of half-truths, the dyslexic way we can view life and then skillfully navigate to the heart of the matter.  That’s Barb.”
…. On one hand, Barb is a “what you see is what you get” kind of woman. She is exceedingly bright and witty, transparent, honest and sincere. But better still, she is “deep water” for her transparency and honesty is wrapped in a zeal to see us all live to our full potential. She loves to inspire, insightfully sees the weaknesses within and wisely knows how to help shape them into strengths.  You can read in her biography all of her accomplishments. While she will not (and should not) discount them, she sees them for what they are, open doors that God has given her to vibrantly impact her world in a positive way. Knowledge abounds… but a woman who has wisdom is a treasure. Barb is a treasure.

She’s fun and funny; relevant and provocative…and very, very real.”
“Our church sponsors a Ladies’ Retreat Weekend and we were blessed to have Barbara as our speaker. Her energy, spontaneity, and sincerity were so contagious! As a former teacher and leadership trainer, I know the importance of keeping your audience involved and she was such an inspiration as her testimony touched each of us – young, old, married, single – it was like she knew each of us personally. It was such a great weekend filled with God’s word along with “on your feet, hands-on” activities that helped us all to renew and restore our relationships with family and friends; and to draw closer to each other as a church family.”
