Barbie Swihart

Hello! I’m so glad you stopped by!

My name is Barbie and I’ve been writing in this space for over 10 years.  Although this blog has gone through countless redesigns, one thing has always remained — I share openly and honestly about my life.  Not just the pretty, picture worthy moments, but the hard moments that we tend to want to keep to ourselves.

I’ve gone through countless seasons in my life but one thing I know for certain, God has remained with me through each one. I didn’t always recognize it at first, but in His patient and loving way, He always reminded me that He was God and that He is good — no matter what.


This is not a new blog for a new season, but rather a blog for all seasons.  I have chosen the tagline “Living every season to the fullest” because it’s something that I need to be reminded of, often. God promises to fill our cups until we overflow.  No matter what season you are going through in your life, may you always recognize that God is present, that He is good and that He desires to fill you to overflowing.

On a more personal note,

I have been married to my love for 30 years and we have four children — 3 adult children and 1 teen. I enjoy spending time with my two adorable grandsons, ages 1 and 3.

If you were to sit across the table from me at a local coffee shop, we would tell one another about the hard places we’ve walked, and then we would celebrate together that we’ve come through to the other side.  Even if we haven’t arrived yet, our passports have already been stamped. He promises to bring us through!

I hope you will visit often. Be sure to leave me a note when you do so that I can visit you.

Living every season to the fullest,
