In the Start Here tab, I shared a little bit about the purpose of this blog and how to use it. In this tab, I’d like to share a little about myself.
My name is Barb Raveling, and my passion is to help the church grow—not in numbers—but in maturity. I love helping people break free from strongholds, gain victory over their negative emotions, grow closer to God, follow through on goals, and start life-giving habits, such as having a daily quiet time.
I believe we’re transformed by the renewing of the mind and you’ll find examples of how to renew your mind for life change all over this website. Most of my resources come from my own renewing times with God, but I’ve also had extensive training in biblical counseling and am an executive Christian life coach through my training with Coach Approach Ministries.
I currently write on the road as my husband of almost forty years just switched careers. He retired from 30 years of being a physical therapist in Hamilton, MT and is now a travel physical therapist. That means we move every three months to a new location!
We take what we can fit in one car, drive to a new location, rent an apartment, and set up camp. It’s a little like being in college again. Few belongings, one car, and a small place to live. And we love it!
It’s been so fun to make new friends, hike new trails, explore new areas, and get involved in new churches and growth groups! We also get a chance to live closer to our kids from time to time! We have four adult children, one son-in-law, two daughters-in-law, and our first grandchild due March 31, 2022!
I hope you enjoy the resources at this blog. If you’d like to get an idea of what you can find here, go to the start here tab.
