Daughter of the King - born from above in 1989.

Deborah grew up in a military family and moved to Florida in the early 1970's.  She began her journey of creative writing soon after coming to know Jesus as her personal Savior. Her primary goal is to share her personal testimony with others while bringing hope and practical help through her writing.

Win a Free Kindle for MOM 

As a member of the John 3:16 Marketing Network - I am giving away (2) signed paperback copies of my book  "Mission Possible" along with a $15 Starbuck's Gift Card.  I am also giving away (2) e-book copies of my book.

Mission Possible is a non-fiction Scriptural based study for women who love the Lord Jesus, but their spouse doesn't share their passion.  Living in an unequally-yoked marriage is difficult, but not impossible.

** Visit my FREE Downloads Page for a sample of "Mission Possible" & other goodies. **
