Before becoming an administrator at MHS, Deanna and her husband, Andy, were full-time houseparents at the school for 14 years, helping to raise 100 middle and high school age boys.
As much as Deanna loves to write, she is especially passionate about her relationship with God and speaks from her trials, hurts and successes, knowing that in those moments God has drawn very near to listen to and be present with her. Deanna's transparency and encouragement keep conference attendees and workshop participants wanting to learn more and grow deeper in their faith. Deanna's passion for God's word has allowed her to teach in home Bible Studies and record DVD studies for women.
