About Deb & CMB

About Deb

Deb 2 200I am a blessed child of God, pastor’s wife, mom, gram, daughter, sister, and friend who loves nothing better than laughing with friends over a good cup of coffee or glass of wine.

I love sharing the amazing ways God transformed a “good little church girl” into a woman of faith. I am crazy in love with Jesus and take joy in telling others about Him through my writing . . . at retreats and conferences. Most importantly, I am still a major work in progress taking life one blessing-filled moment at a time.

I do hope you will join each conversation about faith and life. Circumstances can be hard but you and I are blessed with a hope that only God can give and a peace beyond understanding. May we daily shout His praise and declare His love always remembering at the end of the day . . . it’s all about LOVE.

My Book

 

To Find out more go to Sarah’s Garden@Amazon

Each child is born with a unique personality, individual talents, and specific abilities. Wouldn’t it be nice if they came with a personal manual, too?

Sarah’s Garden is a parable that tells of the struggle in each of us to flourish in our strengths, rather than giving in to our weaknesses.

Join Sarah as she deals with confusion and frustration while caring for her special garden. Find out who the King sends to help her after the ogre, the nasties, and the “trashy” villagers make a mess.

Finally, discover the thrill she experiences when she learns of her true identity and the fabulous future that awaits her

5.0 out of 5 stars Not Just a Kids Book,

This is a great book for “kids of all ages”; we have all been given special talents by God for use in His Kingdom on Earth. As Rick Warren would say, ” We have been created for a purpose”. This is a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Biblical Fairy Tale for Girls of All Ages

This book is a beautiful allegory of God’s love for us and how we so often resist it. It’s a picture book with gorgeous illustrations, making it the perfect book to read to your daughter or grand-daughter. Yet it’s every bit a gift for grown-ups, too. If you like A Parable about the King, you’ll love Sarah’s Garden.

Advertising @ CMB

Counting My Blessings is my place of ministry.  Rev and I consider it a huge blessing to not need an income that could be generated here and because my heart’s desire is simply to glorify God as I encourage you in your faith, I have chosen not to profit from advertising or sponsored posts.

I applaud and encourage those of you who are helping to support your family through online ministry as we each make the decision to monetize our sites for very personal reasons.

If you should see a link in my sidebar or read a post where I review a book, movie, or product . . . know that I am not benefitting personally other than occasionally receiving the gift of a sample for review.

I am so thankful to be here sharing my love for the Lord with you. Your conversation and encouragement is all the blessing I need.

Thanks for stopping by . . . I hope you’ll visit often and stay to chat. I love spending time with friends.
