Meet Debbie

Writing has been a part of my life since I was a little girl. My mom still has my first poem, written in first grade, in which I describe her legs as a hair brush. I must have been mad at her that day! Turning fifty last year inspired me to pursue writing and publication as a more serious endeavor.

I had devotions published in the IBSA Good News Daily Devotion Guide, have written several guest blog posts and recently had a poem featured in Every Day Poems, a daily E-zine of T. S. Poetry Press.

I am an avid reader and usually have 3-4 books, from theology to poetry or a fiction classic to those on the craft of writing, piled on my nightstand at once. I also write book reviews and would love for you to join me at Goodreads.

My husband and I served as missionaries in South Africa for three years, but currently have made Southern Illinois our home. It is my hope that the Lord would use my words to encourage your soul.  If a post has been helpful to you, I would love to hear about it! You can email me at or follow me on Facebook.
