Humorist Julie Patrick-Barnhill will be speaking for a fundraiser at the Bowling Green High School Auditorium on Saturday, May 3, at 2 pm.

Barnhill is a Missouri girl, a graduate of Brunswick High School and Hannibal LaGrange University, humorist, national/international speaker, author of 11 books, columnist, radio guest speaker, former elementary teacher, and a mother of three children.

Her focus addresses the realities of parenting, life, home, work, and eternity.  She is a warm and charismatic communicator who melds wit, humor, and intellect through print, social media, television, and radio.

Barnhill’s hilarious delivery, “sanctified sarcasm,” and authentic confessions coupled with her rock solid confidence and knowledge in biblical truth have earned her the reputation for being welcoming, accessible, and a conduit for life-long change.  She always communicates in an honest and winsome manner, assuring audiences everywhere of what matters in the light of Eternity while offering humor-graced inspiration, resources, and truth.

The humorist has appeared/spoken in Canada, South Africa, China, Germany, Austria, Hungary, England, Italy, the Netherlands, and 33 states in the U.S.

She has been featured on numerous radio programs across the nation and has also appeared on television with the late Dick Clark and on the Oprah Winfrey Show, serving as a moderator for one of Ms. Winfrey’s discussion groups.

This event is hosted by the Bowling Green Christian Church, with 10 percent of proceeds going to the Hope Center and remainder of proceeds being dedicated for the historic preservation/repair of the church’s stained glass windows.

Tickets may be purchased from any Bowling Green Church member or by contacting church office at 573-324-5215.
