My Stories

My name is Debbie.  I am a 40-something wife & mom who lives in the Midwest with her husband and kids.  My hubby & I met during our college years in the early 90’s and we now have 3 kids ages 5, 9, & 11.

I also have a 28 year old son, Mikhael, who is married to a lovely young woman, Kendra, and this year (2017) I will technically become a grandmother.  All the typical grandma names were already taken, so I get to be called “Gigi“.

I gave birth to Mikhael at the age of 18, 2 days after graduating from High School.  I chose to give my son up for adoption for a number of reasons – and I am currently rewriting this story so be sure to subscribe to my blog updates so you don’t miss a post!

Becoming and being a wife & mom has been my life’s journey.  As a child I was infatuated with babies, and children, and the way God has us continue on, generation after generation.  I think God gives us the ability to become parents – in part – to continue His work in the garden of our hearts.  I am constantly faced with my own selfishness and desire for control – and it is NOT easy for me to parent because of it.

The stories I share are hard sometimes, painful sometimes, and even embarrassing sometimes.  But I know He is doing his work in me.  Because He is taking me on a journey where I am Finding Grace and Glory.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield.
The LORD gives grace and glory;
He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.
