Bernadine Barber is a spoken word artist and public speaker. She was born and raised in The Philippines. Tragically, at the age of four, her mother passed away due to cancer. At the age of seven, she and her family of six moved to the United States of America in search for a better life. they became american citizens and have lived coast to coast due to a sister joining the navy. They have lived in San Francisco, Virginia, San Diego and then to south Texas where at the age of sixteen, she gave her life to Jesus Christ.

She earned her associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education (with an emphasis in art) while working a part-time job at a Childhood Development Center. When she was seventeen, she had met Lawson Barber at a youth Bible Study. they were friends for two years, and then they began courting. In November of 2011, they were happily married. Their life together has involved Ministry School and Youth Pastoring. they also have had the blessing of two children; a five-year old daughter named Isabella and a four year-old son named Jonathan.

Bernadine’s desire is to share personal life stories and biblical truths in order to spread hope, assurance, conviction and freedom. Her motivation can be summed up in two verses: “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (John 8:32) and “Freely you have received, freely you shall give” (from Matthew 10:8). What truths she has personally learned and received freedom through are the same truths she hopes to pass on to others, for the glory of Jesus Christ.

You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (John 8:32).

Freely you have received, freely you shall give (Matthew 10:8).




“I use poetry to speak up about the issues of life and abortion because I believe the tide is changing in my generation,” she said. “Millennials are becoming more and more aware of the facts and therefore, more and more pro-life. We are learning the truth and then passing it on to bring about change.”

And Bernadine is right: Millennials are the most pro-life generation since Roe v. Wade, and we are changing the abortion landscape.


What inspires you the most?
It sounds generic, but scriptures. Scriptures and then mix that with real-life world news, issues, mindsets, the media, etc.

They are basically blatantly opposites, so to address this fallen world's mindsets against the backdrop of truth is striking and hard-hitting. And as His Word promises: 'the truth will set you free' and '[His] Word shall not return void.'" 


Right To Life

“Years ago, I learned what really happened to pre-born babies during the different abortion procedures, and I was just devastated,” says Bernadine Barber, a spoken word poet.

Barber uploaded her poem, “Condolences” to YouTube last month and hopes to reach the hearts of women who have experienced the tragedy of abortion.
