Barbara Arthur is happily married to Warren in a marriage arranged by God, the mother of three precious blessings, and president of Perfecting the Heart Ministries. She is a gifted Bible Teacher and conference speaker. Barbara is a homeschool parent who will graduate her youngest child this year, 2021.
Born in communist Cuba, Barbara fled the country with her father and two siblings at the age of five. Because of the Cold War and Cuba's proximity to the United States, President Lyndon Johnson enacted the Freedom Flights which brought them to South Florida. They were forced to leave her mother and three other siblings behind. Twenty-three long years passed before the family would see one another again.
Devastated by the family's separation, Barbara's life was difficult. While sitting alone on the last pew of a church, she cried out to the Lord and He heard her prayer. Through the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit, she was led in the sinner's prayer. At that moment, the Lord transferred her from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His Son, Jesus Christ. Today, the one cry of Barbara's heart is:
"Lord, I want to know You."
While her walk with the Lord is vibrant and her convictions rock solid, she has not always walked in the light. Prior to her conversion, Barbara worked as a model in South Florida filming TV commercials. After becoming a Christian, a Norwegian Christian television station filmed her story. Her interview was seen throughout Europe where her statement, "I'm the daughter of the King Most High and it just doesn't get any better than that," was received with applause.
