18 Inches Down

Moving Truth from the Head to the Heart

About Me

Welcome to my blog! My name is Deanne, and I am a wife and a mother of seven terrific children, from 24 down to 9 years old: four boys and three girls. My husband is the pastor of a small, sweet church fellowship, and, yes, we homeschool (though I don’t really consider myself a typical homeschooler…or a typical anything, for that matter!). I am a Florida native, and after some adventures in other states, we are living in Central Florida once more. Ahh…back home where the weather is warm!

I love to read, study, and think, and I process all these things best by writing about them. I also enjoy decluttering and organizing and am inspired by minimalism and simplicity, which for me means having only what we use and love around us. I enjoy cooking most of the time, but I have to admit, it’s not as fun when you have to do it. I really groove to color; I like strong, saturated, vibrant colors set off with crisp, pure white. They energize me.

I would invite you to visit here with a cup of coffee, but I won’t be joining you; I hate the stuff. It’s tea for me, and not that cold kind: I like it hot. I am particularly fond of English Breakfast and Black Dragon Pearl teas, but alternate with green tea and oolongs just to keep it interesting.

I am utterly in love with Jesus, and you will find that I can’t help but speak of Him in most of what I think and say. Although I am introverted, I find people interesting and truly enjoy helping them. I received my Diploma of Biblical Counseling from Grace Fellowship International Counseling Institute in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee and I run an online counseling subscription service which stands out by providing unlimited personal contact with counselees for a monthly fee.

I hope what you read here will change your perspective and inspire, encourage, and motivate you. And I hope you will participate and liven this place up a bit!

      Thank you, John. Glad you took the time to stop by. I am extremely grateful for my GFI studies. This blog, and my life, would not be what it is if I had not taken them. Keep up the good work!

Hi, I’m Deanne!

Biblical counselor, budding author, and domestic engineer. I enjoy reading, studying, thinking, and writing about it all. I crave simplicity, laughter, and a cup of hot tea in the morning. Metaphor and allegory is my thing, and I enjoy using it to help myself and others understand spiritual concepts.
