About me


Hi, my name is Barbara Robbins. My husband Mitch and I have been married since 1973. Mitch is a video producer and editor, and I help with the bookkeeping for our business which specializes in video projects for Christian TV, churches, and other Christian ministries. We have had three children. Amy, our adult daughter, is a free lance artist and blogger, David, our special-needs son, recently got to meet our first-born, Teresa, in heaven.

In addition to blogging at hopeandlight.blog, I am a contributing writer for Godlivingwithchronicillness.com and a part of the leadership team for God-Living Girls with Chronic Illness, a Christ-centered support and encouragement Facebook group for ladies of all ages with chronic illness.

  1. Barbara, it is nice to meet you this morning and I am grateful that the Lord has brought me to your website. I have two adult sons: my youngest son, Matt, has just been diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s at 37, I struggle with multiple chronic illnesses myself and an intellectual disability. God has introduced us before or because I wasn’t sure what to pray for or about. I look forward to learning from your experiences and reliance on Jesus Christ.

    • I hope my blog posts will continue to minister to your needs. You mentioned you personally suffer with several chronic illnesses, so I’d like to share a helpful resource with you. God-Living Girls with Chronic Illness is an Facebook support-Bible study group that I help lead. It is an outgrowth of Laurie Miller’s website
      https://god-livingwithchronicillness.com/. If you are interested in joining God-Living Girls, just click on the above link and the first page gives information on how to join.
