REVISED BIO FROM SUZIE FOR DEBBIE'S WEBSITE:
Debbie Alsdorf is a popular speaker and author and the Director of Women's Ministries at Cornerstone Fellowship in Livermore, California. Debbie's weekly Bible studies are attended by hundreds of women who are eager to discover how to deepen their walk with God. In addition, as the founder of Design4Living Ministries, Debbie also leads conferences and retreats that equip and encourage women in their faith. She and her husband Ray have raised a blended family of four adult children, and they currently live with two dogs and one cat.
--Carol Kent, speaker; author, A New Kind of Normal
"Deeper helps women understand God's love and involvement in every detail of life. Debbie embraced this depth of love and now beautifully teaches truth that changes a woman forever."
--Jennifer Rothschild, author, Lessons I Learned in the Dark and Self Talk, Soul Talk
"Debbie Alsdorf has given us a highly valuable "how-to" manual for going Deeper. Deeper in our faith, deeper in discovering our worth, and deeper in our capacity to see and love others as God does. Debbie is a wonderful communicator of God's hope and healing."
--Ellie Lofaro and Kathy Trocolli, authors, Spaghetti for the Soul
"Are you sick of the shallow, rat race, 'Stepford-like' Christian life? Long to go deeper with God and discover 'real' relationship with Christ? Debbie Alsdorf leads us to a deeper, richer, fuller, love relationship with God. Every woman would love life more if she too went Deeper."
Pam Farrel, international speaker, relationship specialist, and author of over 25 books
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.
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.
Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Ready for a Deeper Walk with GodJuly 30, 2013Anne Baxter CampbellWillows, CAAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5On 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!

K Marier5 Stars Out Of 5September 3, 2008K MarierThis 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.
