About Babs

Barbara Oden on the right with her precious mother Helen on the left.










Barbara Oden, a freelance writer and speaker, started writing in elementary school. One of her stories in second grade was sent to Highlight’s magazine by her school principle. Since then, she’s been hooked.




Barbara embraces the fact that she is God’s work in progress—in a constant state of growth and change. Published in four anthologies, she uses her sense of humor and personal life experiences to show women they don’t have to be a slave to their past. She encourages them to give their hurts over to God and then demonstrates how to get up, dust off, and live life as God intended.



Living in the Texas county which hosts the annual Mosquito Festival (they’re coming, so we might as well celebrate their arrival), Barbara enjoys cooking, pampering her dachshund Matilda, and texting her son and new daughter-in-law who live in the Dallas area. Most of all, she enjoys her daily adventures with Jesus and serving in her home church. Barbara invites you to visit her websites at www.barbaraoden.com.
