Deb earned a degree in Economics and Finance, then followed the Lord’s lead to direct women’s and family ministries while raising a family and pursuing additional training in writing, speaking, and theology.
Deb’s ministry travels have taken her to 26 states and Canada, and continue to lead her down the street to her home church. Raised on a ranch in South Dakota, Deb and her family shared adventures residing in five different states before calling Nebraska home. Deb is a follower of Jesus, a pastor’s wife, and the proud mother of three amazing young adults. She’s a blogger, a women’s ministry leader, and a self-proclaimed coffee/chocolate connoisseur.
