I have been busy working on finishing up things for my book that is scheduled to be released in January 2014.
Here is a brief tidbit from one of the endorsements.
“Those who endure greater conflict always have something powerful to
say to those who face lesser conflict – and that’s how I look at Deb
Willows. This woman is a rare jewel in Christ’s kingdom, inspiring and
encouraging all those who know her. And I trust you will come to know
her well through her new book, Living beyond My Circumstances. The
book you hold in your hand is filled with nuggets of biblical insight and
wisdom, honed and shaped from years of living with a significant
disability. So be encouraged. Be blessed. And see what wonderful things
the Holy Spirit has to say to you through Deb’s story!” – Joni Eareckson
Tada, the Joni And Friends International Disability Center.

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised” (Proverbs 31:30 NLT).
We met when she was 21. She was an ordinary person, but her warm smile would warm up the coldest day. She loved chocolate, ice cream, black coffee, and making things with her hands. She always made time to listen or help others. She knew nothing about Cerebral Palsy, but she was willing to learn. She pushed me to work hard, but at the same time, she accepted my limitations and loved me for who I was. When the world told me I could not succeed, she told me to try.
This person is my mother. She looked after me every day for the first 25 years of my life: getting me up and dressed every morning, bathing me, feeding me, getting me ready for bed. She could not call in sick. The doctors told her to give me up and put me in an institution, but she did not.
In 2012 Mom went through a different battle. She had ovarian cancer. Mom went through surgery and chemo. This May she has been done chemo for one year. It has not been an easy year. She has lived through much pain.
I want to thank Mom for her dedication to Jesus, her husband, her children, grandchildren, and life.
Thanks, Mom, I love you, you’re the best!
Her children stand and bless her. Her husband praises her: “There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all!” (Proverbs 31:28-29 NLT)
With this blog and web-site I hope to write short stories that will be informative about living with Cerebral Palsy and relying on God. God is my strength without Him my life is worthless.
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need. Philip. 4:13 (NLT)
It is my hope to post a story twice a month. Enjoy the site come back often, I look forward to your comments.
