My name is Debbie Kay and I am a Christian writer, whose calling is to comfort people who are hurting. With God's help, I have overcome many challenges in life. I know what it is like to be overwhelmed with sadness and grief and to have a heart so broken and battered you don't know how you can possibly survive the pain. I also have experienced the wonder of having my pain and grief turned to joy, by a loving and caring Savior. As the mother of a special needs child and as someone with multiple auto-immune disorders, I have learned how to research to find resources and answers to help cope with illness and disabilities . This site is an effort to share what I've learned and the many resources I've found on my journey.
In addition to being an author, I am a credentialed minister and a speaker, who has certification in grief recovery. I am trained as a Life Coach with specialties in Stress Management, Health and Wellness Coaching, Hope Coaching, Marriage Mentoring and Divorce Recovery. The first part of my mission is to offer hope and resources, to broken-hearted people who are dealing with grief and loss associated with abuse, chronic illness, death, divorce, grief, and having a child with special needs. These are all areas that have touched my life and I want to help others dealing with the same issues. The second part of my mission is to help educate the world at large, on how to show compassion and minister to those who are grieving and disabled.
Since 2010, I've had the privilege of being an official Joni and Friends Associate. We both share a vision of bringing hope to those who are often marginalized by disability.
My ministry is multifaceted. In addition to writing, speaking and singing, I have a page on Facebook, where I post words of encouragement and offer daily prayers. I also have a blog where I post daily prayers and occasional messages. You can subscribe to my blog, via RSS or e-mail, so the encouragement you'll need for the day will be waiting for you in your inbox.
