Who is Debra?

Well this Debra is a wife, Mom, empty-nester, retired teacher, and avid Jesus follower. I love photography, writing, sailing, exploring, paddle boarding, and traveling.

What’s with “DEBRA’S PALM” and being under it?

Deborah was one of the twelve Judges of ancient Israel. These judges led the Israelites before they had kings. She was the fourth judge and it is said that she “held court under the Palm of Deborah”. Judges 4:4

She sat at the entrance to the city and there the Israelites would bring to her their issues, cares, disputes, etc. It was the judges responsibility to settle each case with Godly insight and inspiration.

Being a Debra myself, I have always felt inspired by her story.

So, as I write this, (January 2020), and create this website that bears her legacy and my name, I will seek to inspire and encourage like Deborah of old.

Updating now, in November of 2020, WOW!

What an unexpected year it has been. Little did I know what would be happening this year, the demands on us and the great need for encouragement, inspiration and even prophetic revelation.

May this be a place, under the palm, where clear, concise and inspirational words can be found and digested for strength in our days.

A new day is dawning

Cheers to you.
