I am Barbaralee Kyle, Administrator and Founder of Grace Residential Senior Living. I’m a “Good Ole’ Southern Belle” from Alabama, a Mother of 2, a Grandmother of 8, a Great Grandmother of 1, a Foster Mother of 6, and am a Born Again, Daughter of “THE KING.”
My story begins many years ago when I was about 25 or so, and I had 2 small children and a husband in seminary who needed my full time support.
My Conversation with God
On one particular morning, I was sitting in my car waiting for it to heat up and I prayed, “Lord, please give me a job where I can stay home with my children and be the Mom that I want to be for them.” Now I have felt God’s guidance many times in my life, but to say that God, The Father, has directly spoken to me, I couldn’t until now. I know without a shadow of a doubt that God said to me, “I’m not going to give you a job, I’m going to give you a ministry.” Immediately fear set in, and I told God to please not send me to Africa. I know He had to have laughed at me and thought that was funny because I had no clue what He meant. I thought He was talking about being a missionary.
