Barbara Koob is an ordinary woman who has learned to hope and dream with purpose. A biblical dreamer with a passion for prayer, she is an authentic author, speaker and teacher, who is desperate for God to splash His blessings on others.
With great joy, Barb will inspire you to:
- Awake to God’s whispers, listen deeply and become His beautiful dreamer.
- Discover His healing clues for your transformational “life makeover”.
- Embrace your freedom to live, love and pray with hope.
- Activate your faith to step out of the boat into His good plans.
Similar to the biblical dreamer Joseph, Barbara was amused by her dreams, but held captive in a different way — through the prison walls of her mind. Abandoning almost two decades of a successful corporate career for motherhood, Barbara’s experiences deeply connect from working professionals to stay-at-home moms. Using her teaching background, Barb has coached and led numerous small groups and Bible studies throughout the years. Delightfully sharing her humorous and amazing God stories, she hungers to reach lost and hurting people so they may be equipped to welcome God and receive His healing touch.
Barbara is clearly recognized for her expertise in prayer, healing, and biblical dream interpretation at her local church and the Hope Ministry Institute (HMI), a school affiliated with King’s College and Seminary. Formally mentored in healing prayer, she attended the Presbyterian Reformed Ministries International (PRMI) Dunamis Institute and God’s unique Dream University to both receive healing and pray for the sick. In addition, Barb is a graduate of PRMI’s Advanced Healing and Deliverance program and has served as the Prayer Director for the Hope Chapel Apex Women’s Ministry.
Barbara’s book Dream Discoveries is an encouraging biblical alternative to contemporary dream interpretation, which compliments her healing and prayer ministry by guiding readers on their own dream journey to discover God and what He desires to do in their life. She has also published an article on the Proverbs31 Everyday Life Blog entitled “Have You Encountered the God Who Sees?”
Happily married to the man of her dreams, Barbara lives with her teenage sweetheart and a cuddly cockapoo named Sunshine in the Piedmont of North Carolina. They have been blessed with a beautiful daughter who is now a young woman embarking on her own dream journey to discover God’s divine purpose for her life. You can find Barb on her website at BarbaraKoob.com where she journals about life as a real Barbie doll on her road to freedom.
