She is the author of the book, Enough Already: Winning Your Ugly Struggle with Beauty and a six-week DVD Bible study titled, Beautiful Already: Reclaiming God’s Perspective on Beauty. Barb has been speaking at conferences, churches and women’s ministry events since 2005.
Prior to transitioning to full-time ministry as a speaker and author, Barb served on staff at CedarCreek Church in Perrysburg, Ohio for almost 14 years, most recently as the Executive Director of Ministry. She co-led CedarCreek’s annual Fabulous Women’s Conference that reached over 10,000 women during the event’s five years. Barb lives in NW Ohio with her husband, Matt and they are the proud parents of three beautiful daughters, Kate, Sami and Abbie.

Song Writer, Worship Leader
Sitting down to talk with worship artist Jaime Jamgochian you quickly realize she is a woman of faith who God is using in many different ways through her music and message. It’s immediately evident she has a passion to see people know how much God loves them and a desire to see that reality change their lives—because it has changed hers.
Jaime came to know the Lord at 21 while studying music at Berklee College of Music in Boston. God completely changed her life and it is her greatest desire to see people encounter Jesus in a real way.
From Boston Jaime ended up in Seattle where she was a worship leader for several years and began writing her own worship songs. It was during that time in Seattle that Jaime signed with Centricity Records and went on to record 3 albums with them. She then moved to Nashville, TN where she still calls home and continues to travel throughout the US and internationally leading people in worship, singing songs of hope and sharing a message of finding your value and purpose in Christ.
