Barrett has strong faith, and she opened up about this in an interview with Niagara Falls Publications. "Well, anybody that's a fan of myself and my husband, they would know that we're very faith-based people; that we love the Lord Jesus very much. And we do really base our life around the Bible. And so, we are big followers of Christ, and really do what we do to glorify God and the gifts that he's given us. I think he's gifted me with a voice. And I think he's gifted my husband in other ways, which is why we do music together."


She Works Hard

Barrett has been working hard since she was young. She revealed to Niagara Falls Publications that her parents helped her develop this attitude. "I'm originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and I have two very hard-working parents who have always had multiple jobs my entire life. So, I think my parents definitely instilled a hard-working characteristic in myself, as well, and I don't take things for granted. And I know that people would die to be doing what I do, and be able to do this job."


She Ate Healthy

After having her first child, Barrett revealed in an interview that she started eating healthier. "I don't know, I guess being a mom…I really haven't gotten the chance to, like, eat all the junk food that I was eating," she says. "So I guess it really just cut [the weight] out in my face and all around the place! I thankfully was able to kind of like shed some weight quickly and get off all the baby weight and I feel good. I dunno, I'm thankful for that — that my body kinda was able to snap back and be healthier than it was before, even after having a baby, and quickly, after that. So I can thank, I guess, my 21-year-old metabolism for that!"
