The name Babbie Mason is synonymous with creative excellence in the Christian community. An award-winning singer-songwriter of Christian music, her ministry and career have blessed countless thousands for almost three decades. The daughter of a Baptist pastor, Babbie learned to serve others early in life. Demonstrating exceptional musical skill early in life, she became the church’s full-time pianist and choir director by age nine. She often accompanied her father, the late Rev. George W. Wade, as he preached at home and at churches across the Great Lake States. Those humble beginnings paved the way for a ministry that has taken Babbie Mason across the globe where she has encouraged the hearts of young and old alike in churches, conferences and corporate conventions.

An award-winning singer, songwriter, teacher and TV talk show host, Babbie Mason shows no signs of stopping. Taking the message of God’s love to an audience of women has led Babbie to author the brand new book, This I Know For Sure (Abingdon). Babbie encourages the reader to trust God with life’s questions and challenges. She digs deep into God’s Word, encouraging the reader to stand on what we know to be true of God’s character instead of on how we may feel. This I Know For Sure reflects on the faith-filled promises from God’s Word, helping the reader to realize that the things we know as Christians outweigh any doubt, uncertainty, or fear of the unknown. As a part of this life-giving theme called This I Know For Sure, there are several components, all by the same name, that enhance the book’s theme. In the 6 week women’s Bible study, Babbie teaches by DVD and shares uplifting music from her brand new CD in each session. The music CD features the song that inspired the theme along with 12 selections to bolster the believer’s faith. Babbie’s 25th recording, This I Know For Sure, underscores the book and the study’s timely message that assures of God’s presence and His perfect plan for every believer.
Babbie’s compelling passion for women’s ministry is ever increasing. A sought after women’s conference speaker, Babbie teaches women that they matter to God and that they can overcome any obstacle they may face. Whether it is from the theme of This I Know For Sure or her prior work, Embraced By God, Babbie brings the theme of these encouraging works to the stage to lead women in exciting worship concerts called, Worship Celebrations For Women. Babbie leads mothers, daughters, sisters and friends in an exciting worship experience with a purpose. Women all over America and abroad have encountered Jesus in an atmosphere of acceptance, forgiveness and love. At each Worship Celebration For Women, the name of Jesus is magnified, and the hearts of women are strengthened as they hear the victorious stories of other women, and celebrate the power of Christian sisterhood.
