Barbra Gentry Pugh

Barbra's heart’s desire is to know Christ intimately and to be an instrument used by God and stirring the same desire in others, with every beat of her heart. Her greatest aspiration and fulfillment is sharing the uncompromising truths of Scripture, to women of all ages, to not only know the Word of God intellectually but experience it practically by the power of the Holy Spirit. Her calling is to encourage women to hunger for a closer walk with Jesus Christ. She wants women to know their needs and desires can only be gratified by a life totally abandoned to self and devoted to Him. Her life’s verse is Acts 20:24: “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus had given me, the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.” Barbra is the founder and CEO of Heart Expressions Ministries International, a faith-based ministry, devoted to reaching the heart of women one beat at a time, to live lives expressing the heartbeat of God.

Gathering the fragments, that nothing will be lost! Stories of women have been broken and shattered by their circumstances, yet they have emerged stronger and wiser. You cannot step into your higher purpose that God has for you until you are willing to allow yourself to become healed and whole. You will see a visible demonstration of a group of women who gathered their fragments, that nothing they went through will be lost, and now they have more leftover to help other women become free. 

Personal transformation requires radical change and renewal from a life that no longer conforms to the ways of the world to a life that glorifies God”! “Gathering The Fragments That Nothing Will Be Lost” Anthology is a collection of true stories that will take you on a journey through the lives of women who have gathered the fragments of their lives and emerged stronger and wiser!  

My Goal is to share the undying love of Jesus Christ in the midst of life’s challenges of pain and disappointment to be a vessel to help others in their journey to wholeness in Christ.
