Product Description

Debbie Alsdorf discovered the reality of Christ's love through a season of pain and brokenness. In Deeper, she reaches out to every woman tired of cliche Christianity and the burden of living a life of performance and people-pleasing. Through Psalm 139, you'll discover how to bring life to your heart by radically embracing four core truths about God's love for you: he knows you, he protects you, he made you, and he values you. Discover how meditating on these basic truths can help you move beyond "life-as-usual" into a vibrant, deeper walk with the one who loves you most. Paperback.

Publisher's Description

We often believe things about ourselves that do not line up with God's truth. We think our worth is based on performance or possessions, that we have to be perfect to be loved, or that we're too ordinary to be used by God. Deeper tears down these lies and teaches women to replace them with four truths from Psalm 139--God knows me, he protects me, he made me, he values me.
Using compelling narrative and Scripture, Deeper helps women transform their lives by trusting in the reality of God's love. Instead of striving for perfection and worth, readers can rest in the truth that they are his.

Press Release

Beyond "Nice Girl" Christianity
Debbie Alsdorf, popular speaker and author leads Christian women to a deeper faith by candidly sharing from her own journey and the transforming truths found in Psalm 139

Grand Rapids, Mich - The Stepford Wife was the perfect description for Debbie Alsdorf at one time. Her life seemed perfect. Then her life changed dramatically when she went through a public divorce as a pastor's wife. Her husband said he had never been in love with her - her life was shattered - or so she felt. She wondered if God still loved her with all that was going on? Never mind how she would financially care for her young children.

Alsdorf, openly shares, her struggles during this time of her life - depression, feelings of worthlessness, financial hardship, and a faltering faith. But she rose through this difficult time to clearly see and experience the reality of God's love in a deeper way than she ever had. And she desires to encourage other women to see the abundant life God has for them in her new book, Deeper: Living in the Reality of God's Love.

Part of Alsdorf's growth and healing took place when a friend encouraged her to read Psalm 139. In Deeper, she shares four truths about God that she began to learn from this Psalm.

  • He knows me.
  • he protects me.
  • He made me.
  • He values me.

    Alsdorf took a step of faith in trusting God during her hard circumstances and began to see that her worth was not based on performance or possessions, or that we have to be perfect to be loved. And who would have guessed that a back injury experienced early in her divorce would eventually lead her to meet her second husband whose two girls created a blended family with her two boys? The Brady Bunch wasn't quite the picture of their blended family, but Alsdorf did clearly see how God used disheartening circumstances to draw her closer to Him, and to her new husband and family.

    With a mix of compelling narrative and Scripture, Deeper helps women transform their lives by trusting in the reality of God's love. Instead of striving for perfection and truth, readers can rest in the truth that they are His. The questions for further reflection at the end of each chapter make this book an ideal resource for personal study and for small group interaction.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    Alsdorf, founder of Design4Living Conferences, passionately counsels, speaks to and writes for evangelical women. Here, she calls them to live beyond what she terms “Christianity Lite” or “the Stepford Woman reality” in order to experience God's deeper truth where “theology matches reality.” Alsdorf tells readers of her status as a pastor's wife, then an unwilling divorced mother of two, and how she lost herself amid the shock and pain. Even after remarrying, when Alsdorf should have been happy, depression clung to her tenaciously. When a poor physical reaction meant she was not a good candidate for prescription medication for her depression, she learned to access God's powerful promises by hourly studying Psalm 139. As its truth permeated her heart and mind, she found freedom from fear and self-rejection and learned to redefine her life by mindfully internalizing her position as God's child, her passion to share Jesus' love and her purpose for serving him. Alsdorf's candor is refreshing, as is her confidence in meditating upon biblical principles and promises for lasting inner change. She skillfully takes readers by the hand and journeys with them from valleys of crippling pain and disappointment to revolutionary transformation for women of faith. (Feb.)

      On July 19 and 20, 2013, I had the privilege to hear Debbie Alsdorf speak at our Write to Inspire Conference in Rancho Cordova, CA. She's got to be one of the most inspirational speakers I have ever heard, and I was so blessed by her presentation. I wish you could have been there.

      But maybe you sorta can. A lot of what she spoke on is in Deeper. Although principally aimed at women, men could also benefit from the teachings in this beautiful book. Each chapter is a separate story and teaching with handy questions at the end that could even make this a delightful Bible study! I think you will walk away from this teaching walking closer with our wonderful Lord!

      The author really sheds light on the heart of the issues most people struggle with in their lives. She looks at them realistically, and injects Biblical truths to help break the power of the lies these issues ingrain in so many hurting people.

      Absolutely loved this book! Enough so I bought extras for family members and friends so they to could experience Deeper. As a Christian, learning to embrace the four core truths about God's love for us has set my heart on fire for the Lord!

      This is an incredible book! I have ordered about 14 of them and given them away. It is the only book (after The Bible) to have such an effect on my life. It has helped me to allow myself to be vulnerable and exposed to God.. in a very deep, and incredible way. And it is an amazing journey...To know God in a purely intimate way is truly life changing.
