Jenna Barbosa

Founder and President

Hi, I'm Jenna! I'm so beyond excited you've stopped by and are checking us out. I truly hope God moves big in your heart and draws you in to the freedom that awaits you.

 

My personal mission is to inspire resilience and lead others to the heart of Jesus. My vision is to help others build better relationships by walking emotionally free. 

After walking through some dark times in my life, I have resolved to use what God has taught me to help others find the light at the end of the tunnel and come out the other side. I love Jesus, psychology, speaking and teaching - wether on stage or in the pages of a book. By the way, I am the author of Tenacious Grace: Redefine Your Relationship With Food and End Emotional Eating. It's one area I've learned to walk emotionally free in and pray it helps others in their journey. I genuinely have a desire to help people become more resilient in life. 

I utilize my training from my Master's Degree in Nonprofit Administration, Advanced Diploma in Biblical Counseling, and Certification in Life Coaching to support my efforts. Above all, I rely on wisdom from God and the support of our board members and close friends to lead my steps.

Some fun facts about me include my love for laughter - like the hard, belly laughter that makes you question if you'll be able to find breath again, the ocean and beach, creamy coffee, the Fall season, the Christmas holiday, motorcycle riding, and anything creative I can do with my hands.

 

I pray I get the chance to serve your heart in a big way on your own journey of emotional freedom.

Natasha Williams

Vice President

Hey friends, my name is Natasha Williams. I am so blessed to say that I am Vice President of Resilient Ministries, as well as one of the Tenacious Grace and Emotional Freedom Coaches. I am so excited that you have taken the time to read this and gather information. You are one step further on your own personal journey. 

 

I am passionate about teaching others the good news of Jesus and the gift of forgiveness that sets captives free. It is my mission to encourage and edify individuals while they experience their own personal transformation.  I spent the first thirty years of my life held captive to the oppression of shame and guilt followed by many forms of addiction. I utilize the gifts that God has given me to encourage others to see themselves the way that God sees them. 

 

My life has personally been transformed by God through Resilient Ministries' amazing team and by walking out my own Tenacious Grace: Redefine Your Relationship With Food and End Emotional Eating journey. 

 

I am a zealous daughter and passionate follower of Jesus Christ, wife, mother of five including twins, Certified Life Coach, Addiction Counselor, and a sinner that Jesus has given the gift of life. I love to travel, spend time outdoors, and with my family. Fall is my favorite season. Hot apple cider is my jam! I thoroughly enjoy thinking outside the box and goal setting. Challenges excite me! I have a heart for service work and enjoy trying new things. I enjoy talking and being in community and have come to enjoy and crave being completely still. Rest and balance are two words I despised at one time and yet they have become my normal. My prayer for you, even as you are reading this, is that you get to experience your own personal transformation in your journey of emotional freedom. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you. The journey of 1,000 miles starts with the first step!
