Carol Barnier

Carol Barnier - Engaging Today's ProdigalCarol Barnier is a fresh, fun and popular conference speaker unlike any other. 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 to conferences nationwide.

She’s also a homeschooler of 17 years, author of four books, mother to three children, and wife to one husband. Her first three books deal with the non-linear mind trying to make it in a very linear world (teaching ADHD kids, being a highly distracted mom, learning styles.) But her latest book, Engaging Today’s Prodigal, Clear Thinking, New Approaches, and Reason for Hope, shares her own prodigal journey and lessons learned to equip and encourage parents who are experiencing the pain of a child leaving the faith they were raised with.

While her humor will have you leaning sideways, her faith is solid stuff. Whether speaking about her first born son’s 13 surgeries, her homeschooling challenges, her family’s many ADHD challenges, or her own walk from being a God-denying atheist to the most grateful recipient of God’s amazing grace, this woman speaks from the heart. She knows why she knows what she knows.

The Power of Recognizing Hidden Shame and How It Can Transform Your Life

Terilee Harrison Replay
What is shame? Where does shame come from? It’s usually related to one of three things:
  • How we are made.
  • The choices of others.
  • Our own sin and mistakes.

The power in shame is in what we think, not in what has happened to us or in what we have done.

Victory over it comes through seeking the truth of who we are in Christ.

Would you like to experience the freedom to love yourself, others and God? What about to have a fresh start or to feel more confident?

Terilee shares her story of living The Shameless Life. It’s a true story of a woman held captive, of a heart chained with shame and regret. Born with a rare and inconceivable condition, she describes in heart-wrenching detail the suffering, and decisions, that plunged her into a life of shame and despair.

“Perfectionism was like a drug for me… I was a beautiful young girl with a big secret…. I felt an intense amount of shame. Over the years, this shame wreaked havoc on my life through the choices I made with men… and even my relationship with God.”

Terilee’s candid portrayal of her life is riveting from the very first sentence, and is a remarkable story of falling into the forgiving arms of a loving Heavenly Father, believing His promises, and the extraordinary outcome: restoration and freedom from shame!

Terilee HarrisonSpeaker, Author, Coach, and Radio Show Host Terilee Harrison boldly shares the love of Jesus because of what He has done in her own life. Terilee’s testimony includes her personal stories of suffering with and overcoming a “rare and inconceivable condition” which caused her intense shame and dramatic tales of a devastating time in her life when she turned her back on God. Because of these life experiences, she is the woman she is today thanks to God’s unyielding love and mercy.

Terilee’s ability to both inspire and challenge audiences to action and change can be attributed to her consistently authentic presentation regarding who she is, where she’s been, and what she’s learned along the way.

Terilee coaches women who are ready for change how to recognize hidden shame and overcome it so they can have a fresh start, feel more confident, and experience freedom to love themselves and others.

Harrison is the author of The Shameless Life: Recognize Your Shame and Overcome It and The Business Mom Guide Book: More Life, Less Overwhelm for Mom Entrepreneurs. For the last 7 years, she has reached thousands of entrepreneurs through her work as a Director for TEAM Referral Network in Southern California.

She co-hosts Elevate Radio each week on the CWA Radio Network, the only Christian women’s channel on Blog Talk Radio.

Terilee resides in Quartz Hill, California, where her husband, Terry, is the Minister at Quartz Hill Church of Christ. Together, they have 4 children: Jonathan, Adam, Jackie, and Cole.

Terilee’s greatest hope is to bring women from the lies they believe to the truth of who they are in Christ so they can live strong, amazing lives through knowing God intimately.

Finding the Gift in Grief

Have you ever experienced a devastating event in your life that’s holding you back?

Tara R. Alemany Replay

Sometimes, an event can be so overwhelming or painful that it keeps us from living life to the fullest. It might be the loss of a loved one or pet, the loss of a job, the unhappy ending of a marriage, the unforeseen demise of a business, a prodigal child that walks away from all that you’ve taught them, and so much more.

What hurts us and pierces us to the soul is different for every one of us, but that doesn’t make the pain any less real or legitimate.

I’m here to tell you though that you don’t have to live in that place of overwhelm. The pain does not have to hold you in place like an anchor, prohibiting you from moving on and finding joy in your life again.

In this presentation, you will learn how to:

  • Alter your perception of devastating events
  • Find the gift in grief
  • Live your life in gratitude

Why is Tara qualified to share these lessons with you? Because she’s been there. She knows loss. And she learned these lessons herself as she lived through and overcame the unexpected death of her fiancé in 2011.
