Kathleen Barton has a passion for helping women fulfill their God-given potential. She inspires women to discover their purpose and passion, and live their life according to their purpose, values and priorities
Over twenty years ago Kathleen realized her life was out of balance. She spent all her time working, going to school, and studying. She didn't have time for her husband much less herself. Faced with the prospect of losing her marriage, Kathleen realized she had totally lost sight of her priorities. That was the start of her life balance journey.
Kathleen turned to God for help, and made Him her first priority. Writing her personal vision statement helped Kathleen clarify her values, and gave her focus and direction. She sought alternative work arrangements to give priority to her family and bring balance into her life. Today, Kathleen, a "reformed workaholic", puts first things first in her life.
