About Me

Barbara Holmes

My name is Barbara S Holmes, and I am the loved wife of Paul, a mother to three amazing children, a grandmother, and a writer of stories and poetry.  I hold a BS and a MA in teaching.  I have a passion for sharing God’s love by helping to protect the lives of minors who feel voiceless and unseen.  I have been known for having a few farm animals around.  I also enjoy learning dance, art, and music, exploring new recipes, planning and creating spaces that flourish relationships, and gardening.  Last but not least, I truly appreciate my faithful family and friends.  They know me best, and love me very well.

Finding Rest in The Garden of The Lord

Do you want to find Peace and Rest in your seasons of uncertainty and stress? 

Finding Rest in The Garden of The Lord demonstrates how our Creator wants to use your fruit and compost for His Glory, and helps you find rest in the middle of any circumstance.

  • These devotions share scriptures, poetry, and art that highlight testimonies from people in the Bible that describe the sometimes-harsh realities of an unexpected winter and how to overcome them. 

  • You will receive helpful tips to remember at the end of the chapters that can navigate you into a worshipful place of peace while fighting back the weeds of life.

  • You will also encounter tools for cultivating your spiritual garden as you begin to see your seasons as part of a sacred journey, bringing you deeper into your identity in Christ Jesus.
