Author Barbra Gentry – Pugh

barbra-gentry-pughBARBRA GENTRY-PUGH, CEO of Heart Expressions Ministries International, a faith ministry devoted to touching the hearts of women one beat at a time, and encouraging them to live lives that express the heartbeat of God, has shared her vision in a book entitled “Every Beat of My Heart.”

This book is a self- discovery of dedication, obedience, forgiveness and transformation.  The reader is taken on a mental journey, a journey built on faith, hope and a deep sense of humility.   You  learn the difference between the “Voice of God” and the voice of human thinking, discover what it means to”live in the moment” of life and realize that an intimate relationship with God is achievable here on earth.


Ms. Gentry- Pugh, a Certified Bible Counselor and Talk Show Host of Heart Expressions says, “We are spirit; we are soul; and we live in body,” a body governed by  Every Beat of My Heart.    Click on the link and “grab a copy of this book!”
