Debi with plantsI’m a Christian writer and speaker living in Centennial, Colorado, with my husband, son and three cats, even though I’m not a cat person.  I spent many years teaching high school and adults, and love speaking to groups.  As I say, there’s nothing more fun than standing up in front of a roomful of people and telling them what to do!  If I had to boil down my various enthusiasms into an overall heading, though, I’d say this:  I want to know how the Bible tells us to live on a practical, day-to-day basis.  How should we view our relationships, our possessions, our chores?  How does God want us to spend our time?  As the title of this website attests, I believe that the key to these questions is intentionality.  So my Intentional Happiness book talks about choosing to do the things that make us happy.  I’m working on my next books:  the scribbled-upon scraps of paper that I seem to collect center on the concept of love.  The book of Ruth is a starting point for that one.  If you have a group that shares my interests, get in touch.  I’d be happy to speak to them.  Contact me through the form at the bottom of the page.
