Hello, I am Mrs. Barnard! Thank you for visiting my web site. This page is dedicated to letting you know all about me and the Barnard Bunch!
My family moved to Pickens County in 2000. My husband, Tim, and I have been married for 33 years. We have been blessed with a beautiful family and a terrific dog! We love spending time with our family and beautiful grandchildren. Tim is a pipeline technician and loves to golf whenever he gets a chance. I love to travel and my passions are learning about God's Word at my church Revolution, going on mission trips with Jasper First Baptist, and taking trips to the beach every chance I get.
Our oldest son, Tim, lives with his family in Ball Ground. Tim graduated from Kennesaw State University and works as a pipeline controller. His wife, Alisha, stays busy taking care of their two daughters. Blakely turned six years old this summer and is very excited about going to first grade. Lydia turns three in December and loves trying out new things.
Our other son, Bradley, lives with his wife, Chelsea, here in Jasper. Bradley graduated from the University of Georgia, teaches at JMS, and coaches basketball and softball at PHS. Chelsea graduated from Kennesaw State University with a nursing degree. She works at Cobb Hospital in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. They are expecting a son in October!
Our daughter, Kayla, lives with her husband, Stephen, in Ball Ground. She graduated from Kennesaw State University with her teaching degree. She is a kindergarten teacher at Jasper First Baptist Church. Kayla also teaches dance at Get to the Pointe studio in Jasper. When she is not in the classroom - she is dancing! Stephen works as a pipeline controller. They are always busy planning their next exciting vacation.
Craig graduated from Pickens High School in 2016 and attended Warm Springs Vocational School. He now works at QSR in Jasper. He loves to hang out and play his video games whenever he is not working.
Farrah graduate from Pickens High School in 2017. When she is not at school, she is busy at work or on a horse. She loves working with horses and training them. She will be leaving for the Air Force in the next few weeks. She is excited about traveling and learning a new career.
Emma is 10 years old. She is called a Peke-pooh. Her mother was a poodle, and her father was a Pekingese. She is small, fluffy, and white. She goes everywhere with us and loves being around people. We haven't told her this, but she is just a dog. Shhhhhh!
That is the Barnard Bunch!
