Barb’s main passion in life is to be a shining light for Jesus! As a
long-time Bible teacher, speaker and author, she equips women to win
their worry battles and live courageously in Jesus’ name. As a woman who

struggles and a family addiction crisis, Barb inspires audiences to
trust that God has more for them because God has put more in them! Barb
is the proud mother of three adult daughters. She loves reading,
traveling and whenever possible prefers to eat dessert first. Visit her

Comedian & Speaker
Amberly Neese is a speaker, comedian, and author with a passion for “GRINspiring” others. She has won hearts (and funny bones) of people all over the country (www.amberlyneese.com) at various retreats, conferences, and fundraisers. Amberly received her Master’s degree from Biola University and now serves as a professor at both Embry-Riddle Aeronautical and Grand Canyon Universities.
Amberly has a heart for connecting others to God and to one another. Her three most current bible studies are “The Belonging Project” (guidelines to help you thrive in biblical community), “Common Ground” (strategies to help you navigate sticky relationships), and her latest, “Untangling Faith” (approaches to tackle deep spiritual questions by looking at the questions of Jesus). In addition, her popular devotional, “The Friendship Initiative: Loving and Connecting Like Jesus” provides new strategies for making friendships. Amberly is a featured comedian and speaker for both Aspire and Marriage Date Night tours. She and her husband have two adult children and live in Prescott, Arizona, where they enjoy the great outdoors, the Food Network, and all things Star Wars.
Artist & Songwriter
Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, April Geesbreght (pronounced JEZ-bray) has been writing songs since she could make a joyful noise. Trusting Jesus at a young age, April served in church and on worship teams throughout her youth. April moved to Nashville, TN in 2010 and landed her first publishing deal writing pop + country songs for Sony ATV. The Lord called her back to worship in 2019, moments after her father passed away. April’s journey of anxiety, insecurity, physical pain and grief, is now a story of hope, healing, assurance, freedom, and joy as she testifies to what the Lord has done. Moved to tell others of her journey in Christ, she began writing and recording a worship album that will release in April 2023.
April is a wife, mother to 3 children, worship leader, songwriter and singer who can often be found playing board games, riding bikes with her kids, interior designing and sitting at her piano creating a song of praise.
