“Just finished reading your book.  Really enjoyed the read.  Quite the page turner. Wonderful tribute by the way of your folks and the grandparents.  Uncle Charles was my hero growing up as a kid and I will always remember our times together with him. Dad, to this day, talks about his big brother and their days growing up.  I know he misses him greatly.” ~ Mike


“Just finished reading your book and it was wonderful. You are such a great inspiration!” ~ Jo


“Your story is amazing! Yes, I did cry and laugh with you! Very beautifully written! I was so happy to learn that you believe all Ten Commandments are still God’s plan for us to live by. Some only believe nine commandments are still in effect and some believe they were “nailed to the cross”. A fantastic and inspiring book and I thank you once again for sharing your life.” ~ LouRene

“We appreciated your book and your willingness to share your difficult life story. We found in engaging and difficult to stop reading...It is hard to believe that you experienced such a difficult life but thankfully you have been rescued by God's grace (as we all have been or need to be).  You have turned it into an opportunity to serve through your writing..."  ~ Ruth

"I really loved reading “It Is What It Is... But It Wasn’t A Tragedy”! I’m not what you would consider a “bookworm”, but Debra’s story held my interest from the beginning to the end of the book. I could hardly put it down! It was not only interesting, but very inspiring to read about someone who had been through so much and came out so refined and renewed. This book is a refreshing reminder of God’s patience, presence, and love throughout our lives. Thank you Debra for sharing your story!"

Bible Study Class Reviews

"I want to thank four amazing women that I have spent several Monday evenings doing a study of a book called "It Is What It Is"... Being able to share struggles we all face as women in our lives. We all need to love and support each other. Thanks Debra Lee for opening your home and your life to encourage other women to live our best lives."

"When you first allowed me to join the Bible study in March, I felt uneasy, nervous, and like an outsider ... You all welcomed me with open arms and allowed me to become part of your extended families, this makes me feel warm, valued and appreciative. I never felt judgement from anyone in the group and in some ways I realized as I was obedient by being transparent, I felt more and more accepted."

"I dug deeper into the chapters as time went on and looked beyond face value and was able to face myself in the mirror and grow as an individual and as a spiritual person.  I'm thankful I have met you all..." ~ Paula Jo


"What I love most about Debra's book It is What It Is and companion study guide Making Wise Choices is how Debra's transparency about mistakes in her life helps us look at our own lives. Making Wise Choices includes hundreds of Scripture references that give the reader the Bible's wisdom on how to handle many of the troubles Debra faced, and that we all face. Her willingness to be honest about her life gave courage to all of us in the Bible study to share our hurts, struggles and joys. We found true Christian intimacy as we studied Debra's book and the Bible."
~Andrea


"I have so much enjoyed the bible study. Looking forward to the next one. Thank you so much for all you do and oh how I love the bracelet not to mention the friends I have made. Amazing!"
~ Dawn


"I loved the class on Making Wise Choices and it was so encouraging I took it again. I’ve made some new good friends and I feel we continue to encourage one another. Thank u Debra Lee for ur ministry to women."

~Marie
