About Debbi

Hello My Sister, 

Someone asked me the other day, “Why do you do what you do?” What a great question. My answer – I write, and teach, and reach to women in order to help  them TRULY UNDERSTAND that Christ is a REDEEMER. He is a Savior, yes! But that saving is just the first step in our faith journey. He saves us SO THAT He can REDEEM us and use our lives for His glory. He is the REDEEMER of marriages, the REDEEMER of broken lives, the REDEEMER of wasted time and wrong ambitions and thoughtless words. His design for all of us is to save, redeem and use us for His good so that others will be drawn to Him.  

I am a devoted wife to my husband, Jarrett. I’m blessed to be called “mom” by my four beautifully unique children – ages 3 to 20! I have all stages of motherhood present in my world.  From toddler to adult – my kids keep my world exciting. I homeschool my kids, assist my husband in his home-based  business, and run 1StepCloser Ministries all from the comfort of my cozy home in La Quinta, CA. I enjoy camping, gardening, and digital scrapbooking. I have learned THROUGH my crazy, FULL life that I need Jesus IN ALL THINGS.

If I could tell you one thing today – it would be this: Trust Christ more than yourself, His plans for you are better and more than anything you could accomplish on your own.
