Bio: BARBARA HIBSCHMAN is a popular conference and retreat speaker for women’s events, churches, college and seminary chapel services, educational conferences, and seminars in the United States and abroad.

Barbara’s experiences as a pastor’s wife, mother, grandmother, public and private school teacher, and 6 years of missionary service in the Philippines, provide her with a colorful and humorous background to communicate God’s love and faithfulness.  She holds a Master of Education degree from Northeastern Illinois State University, and her teaching gifts continue to be used in Christian ministry conventions, missions and writer’s conferences.

Barbara is the author of 8 books, hundreds of magazine articles, and a contributing author to 14 inspirational books.  In 1992, she received the “Writer of the Year” award from the Greater Philadelphia Christian Writers Conference.

Besides teaching at a college in the Philippines, Barbara and her husband, Jim, have served in various cross-cultural ministries. For 8 years they were a pastoral-care couple for missionaries serving in Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, and one “creative access” country in Central Asia. Most recently, they were the lead-pastor couple at an international church in Cairo, Egypt. They returned to Ohio in August, 2011. Together, they team-teach at missions conferences, Perspectives on the World Christian Movement classes, and frequently speak for Marriage Enrichment retreats. They are the parents of 2 grown children, and grandparents to 4 of the cutest kids on the planet!
