My name is Deborah and there are many titles which apply to me – Christian, woman, wife, mother, grandmother, pastor’s wife, friend, writer, teacher, and now, college president’s wife.
My Christian walk began when I was six years old and my newly-saved mother lead me to the Lord. The message in church that morning had been on the reality of hell, and while I did not understand all of the theological implications of salvation, I did understand that I was a sinner and could not meet the standards of a holy God. To this kid who was already a thief and liar, the wonder of a perfect Savior taking my penalty for sin was amazing.
God has given me both a burden and an opportunity to counsel many ladies over the years. Lately I have been burdened to write about issues that women face. Over the years I have made many mistakes – mistakes in my walk with God, mistakes in my marriage, mistakes in parenting, and mistakes in ministry. God has allowed me to live through many seasons of life and I would dearly love to help other ladies avoid some of the painful difficulties that I encountered through my ignorance and willfulness.
Because of this burden I will primarily focus on addressing woman’s issues in spiritually-based posts (and the occasional fun post from family life.) Thanks for sticking with me!
