Debbie and her husband Joe lost three of their four children on New Year’s Day of 2004, when their three daughters were killed in an car accident on the way to be bridesmaids in their older brother Joey’s wedding. There are many kinds of losses, and many temporary remedies, but it’s only through intimacy with Jesus that they found lasting healing. God has touched Debbie and Joe in their brokenness, guiding them forward, and continues to heal their shattered hearts with the power of scriptural truths and principles. Debbie shares these truths, principles and songs on this website and in her book, After the Crash – Grieving with Hope in Light of Eternity. You will be inspired to find that place of intimacy with Christ, where you too can find true freedom and lasting healing.

Debbie and Joe were married in 1980 and live in Shoreview, Minnesota. They enjoy spending time with their son Joey, daughter-in- law Bree, and granddaughter Vivien. Both Joe and Debbie believe God has called them to comfort others with the same comfort God has comforted them. – One of the opportunities they have to do this is to lead a Grief Share Group at their church. They believe that as each heart discovers and learns to respond to God’s truth and love, they are empowered to embrace and walk out their unique story no matter what the circumstance brings. To know God’s love is to embrace our eternal destiny. “But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 3:20). – They teach two-year-old Sunday School at their church, and feel privileged to partner in laying a foundation of God’s love into the hearts and minds of these little ones. -Debbie also plays guitar and sings at a Senior Residential Memory Care Home once a week where she ministers to the spirit and enters the fragile world of the elderly, inviting them to encounter the comfort of God’s presence.


Selections of poetry, journal entries and lyrics written by and for Krista, Nikki and Jessica Mayer, along with lessons Debbie has learned along the way.
