More About Carol Barnier


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! CAROL BARNIER is a humorist and speaker, frequent radio guest and author, Pastor's kid, Christian. . .and former atheist. These days she admits she takes her God, her faith and her theology very seriously, but herself. . .not so much. To every task she brings along her slightly irreverent humor, whether tackling the issues of being very ADHD, the discomfort at being asked to be the older woman in a Titus program (after all, Titus rhymes with phlebitis--proceed with caution), or how to love today's "woman at the well." But in her latest project--bringing tools and hope to the parents of prodigals, Carol rolls up her sleeves and shares ideas and stories from the heart and from her own journey. In every talk, every article, every interview and every book, it is her objective to not only inspire people, but to give them something they can take home and use immediately. She lives in Connecticut with her husband of 25 years and her three kids.

Carol Barnier was born in 1960.

Reviews - What do customers think about If I'm Diapering a Watermelon, Then Where'd I Leave the Baby?: Help for the Highly Distractible Mom?

Great Book  Jan 19, 2008
This book is great! I laughed so hard while getting very practical ideas. The best thing about this book for me was that it made me realize that I am not the only distractable mom. Now I can embrace my own gifts and stop trying to be someone I am not.
 
Organization tips for real, homeschooling moms like me  Nov 17, 2007
Great book! This book is not for those who have Martha Stewart homes. It's for the rest of us who approach our lives realistically, with kids, homeschooling and life getting in the way of those serene homes we hear other people talk about. It's not a comprehensive how-to-organize-the-entire-home book, but rather chapters with practical tips about mothers like us can bring a little order into our lives. Her writing is hilarious. I laughed out loud many times. The chapters are short, making them easily digestible between kid-related crises in the home.
 
Dear Carol,  Aug 6, 2006
I have discovered your great conspiracy! I now know your secret method for boosting book sales. After hearing you speak at a convention, I ran home and requested your book for the distractable mom from the library. I was surprised to find that I had to wait behind 3 others, but I was hopeful that I would get a call any day from the library to come pick up my requested book. After a month, I checked my account, shocked to find that I was STILL behind 3 people. At my next visit, I asked the librarian what the status of the book was. She said at that point, it was 6 weeks late and they were losing hope of having it returned. About a month later, I had moved up one notch. The librarian said they had bought a new copy. 3 months later, the (second) book finally made it back. At last, I was only 1 slot away from checking out your book! I'm sad to report that it's been 4 months now. I've finally given in and just bought a darn copy. I doubt the library will be able to keep this book in stock! I've come to realize that I probably saved myself $20 in late fees by purchasing it. It's a genius ploy- a book for the mom too distracted to bring it back to the library!

Thanks!

Shannon

Ahh - Sweet Relief for distracted moms!  Jan 29, 2006
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a very encouraging book for those who have many things going on in their lives. It was instrumental in giving me several practical ideas for managing the smaller details in life. Great book and I highly recommend it for those struggling with "keeping it all together". It will give you inspiration and keep you entertained!
