About – YesVibes!
Positive Thoughts


My name is April Barnard, and some call me Grannie Apple.  I am the founder of YesVibes!, the company that is designed to help you survive your journey through life.

Life…..  What a journey it can be.

My life has been a roller coaster of emotions, which at times has spiraled out of control, but the key is I NEVER gave up, and I have kept a YesVibes! mindset.

I haven’t written any books or been on any talk shows, yet.  I am an average mother of three beautiful children, two grandsons and a granddaughter on the way.  My life wasn’t like Leave it to Beaver where everything was perfect; I come from a broken home where both my parents were into drugs and had different needs than raising a little girl.

Thank Goodness for Grandparents!

Over the years, I have had my share of struggles and hardship from motherhood, divorce, being a single mom, loss, low self-esteem, etc. Due to the things, I have endured; I misplaced my dreams and goals along the way.  About three years ago, I lost my father in law and one of my daughters (daughter from another mother) within months apart, and it sent me into an emotional roller coaster that I truly didn’t know if I would ever recover from.  The heartache was just overwhelming.  As I was battling with grief, empty nest, troubles with my career and financial issues; now my health was declining.

I looked healthy and fluffy on the outside but was in serve pain on the inside.  I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease.  Wow!  That was a lot to take in.

Things just kept piling up……… Feeling Hopeless and Lost!

Then it happened, a message I heard from Michael Ray Newman with Ziglar International triggered something remarkable in me…..   The spark that I needed to put me back into the GAME of LIFE!

I realized that I was allowing all the negativity that was going on in my life, to control me something awful.   Not a great feeling at all…  You’ve been there before right? Or on the other hand, possibly you are experiencing that now.

The Days That Break You………Are the Days That Make YOU!

Positive Thoughts

I decided I was going to take the bull by the horns (Old Texas Saying) and turn things around.

During this journey,  I learned a lot about myself and built a program to help others struggling with “who they are” called “Create a Breakthrough Mindset”.

I am now a life coach that is on a mission to awakening the YesVibes! Mindset in others.  We are showing others how to break free from impediments, overcome their fears and live the healthy life that they deserve; through positive thoughts, setting career goals, showing gratitude, and learning the power of grace.

YesVibes was born out of a desire to help others on their journey towards healing. As I recovered from traumatic events in my own life, I realized others must be struggling, too – I knew I could share my wisdom.
