A Dire Prophecy
Debbie grew up under a cloud of dire prophecy.
Debbie remembers hearing her third-grade teacher tell her mother,”Debbie is a sweet little girl but she’ll never do well in school.”
When she finally got up the nerve to share her dream of writing, another teacher told her, ” You can’t write, Debbie. You can’t even spell.’
Debbie never forgot the words, ” Let’s go straight to the Chubby Department.”
It was God who planted the dream to be a writer into Debbie’s little heart.
It was God who nurtured the dream.
God met her in the books she read .
God held her & whispered to her, “You can read, You can spell, You can write. ”
The dyslexic little girl born in 1948 in Yakima Washington is Debbie Macomber.
She has authored 155+ books & numerous anthologies. Several of her books have become movies.
Debbie had the courage to keep rejecting the dire prophecies.
Debbie refused to accept the cruel words designed to kill life.
Debbie chose to see herself from God’s perspective.
She Chose To Live The Message of Christmas
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them & the glory of the Lord stood round about them & they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, Do not be afraid for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be for all people . For there is born to you this day a Savior who is Christ the Lord.
