Bringing an Eternal Perspective

Welcome to my website! I’m so glad you decided to stop in.

The stories life offers us can be full of both joy and sorrow and yet God offers comfort through His great love and mercy in the midst of our losses. I have witnessed and experienced the intersection of this joy and sorrow at the most unusual times and tell about it in the book I wrote called: After the Crash – Living Fully after loss in light of Eternity. It’s the story of losing my three daughters in a car accident on their way to be bridesmaids in their big brother’s wedding and my journey of grief through hoping and trusting in a faithful God.

There is power in sharing our stories. When we hear about someone else’s process, we are better able to identify our own struggles and victories, gaining both hope and courage for our own journey. 

I believe the key antidote for any broken heart or shattered dream is the love of God . Although we may not always understand what God allows, we can trust Him when we know His love for us.

My desire is that as you visit the pages of this website and read my book, you will find inspiration, encouragement, hope and eternal perspective, as you gain a greater understanding of God’s extravagant love for you.  

Love, Debbie
