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 up with “under the palm” thing?
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, on this website that bears her legacy and my name, I will seek to inspire and encourage like Deborah of old.
January 2022 Update
What an unexpected couple of years it has been. Little did I know what would be happening in our world, 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.
Cheers to you.
