"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference." - Robert Frost

Keynote Speaker - Carol Barnier
We are thrilled to have Carol Barnier as our keynote speaker! Carol 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.
