More stuff about me you might or might not care about


Sometimes I just do these questionnares friends send me on line to do something non-sensical besides work and give myself a little break at night before I talk to Lar and turn in for the night. Work can become consuming on my mind and I just need a break to shut my mind off from it for a while and stuff...so here we go with another one of these that I got off of Pastor Leanne's blog...


FIRST NAME? Deanna

WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE? No.

WHEN DID YOU LAST CRY? About a month ago on a Wed night…a special friend helped me through it.

DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING? I used to like it a lot. But now that I type so much, my handwriting has gone down hill as I rarely do it except to sign things.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LUNCHMEAT? Roast beef

IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU? It depends on what I was looking for in a friendship. It takes a unique person to be friends with me and I realize that.

DO YOU HAVE A JOURNAL? Yes, definitely. Keep me from going insane/postal

DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS? No, I had them out when I was five.

WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP? Never

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE CEREAL? Special K

DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF? Depends how much time I have.

DO YOU THINK YOU ARE STRONG? Yes, extremely.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR? Cold Stone Creamery’s Birthday Cake

RED OR PINK? Pink

WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVORITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF? I get extremely angry. Fortunately I have learned how to cope with it and how to respond appropriately. Rather than explode, or suppress it, I have learned to remove myself from a situation immediately and go deal with it emotionally for at least 15 minutes or so when needed. But it’s still hard to deal with sometimes.

WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? My grandmother.


WHAT COLOR PANTS, SHIRT AND SHOES ARE YOU WEARING? I am not wearing pants nor shoes. I’m wearing a tshirt and panties which is my standard uniform when at home unless anyone is here but my family.


LAST THING YOU ATE? A mini cannoli (fortunately my weight watcher teacher does not have this blog URL)


WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW? A baseball game that Larry is watching as he lays beside me.


IF YOU WERE A CRAYON, WHAT COLOR WOULD YOU BE? Something very bright with a name that sounds like an OPI polish color. (“I’m Not Really a Waitress”?)


FAVORITE SMELL? Larry’s cologne (Curve) Just by smelling it I can practically have an… (never mind)

WHO WAS THE LAST PERSON YOU TALKED TO ON THE PHONE? My husband

THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE YOU ARE ATTRACTED TO? How passionate they are about the things of God.


FAVORITE DRINK? Tea

FAVORITE SPORT? I don't really watch sports, but I like to ride my bike, walk and skate.


EYE COLOR? Greenish brown


HAT SIZE? I think hats look stupid on me. I don’t wear them so I don’t know my size.


DO YOU WEAR CONTACTS? Yes. For 98% of all my waking hours.


FAVORITE FOOD? I really love most everything but my all time favorite is mashed potatoes.

SCARY MOVIES OR HAPPY ENDINGS? Happy endings.


SUMMER OR WINTER? I love it all now that I’m in FL

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

I'm Just Being Transparent...

This year at the Stronger Conference, a young minister stopped me as I was walking out of the room at the conclusion of a workshop and she said, "I want to tell you something..." (I was all ears.) She said, "Do you notice how many of the speakers this weekend are saying, "Now, I'm just being transparent when I tell you..." or "I'm just keepin' it real..." I nodded yes. In fact, I mentioned that I was one of those speakers. I think I probably said a few times in both my keynote message and my workshop that I was just "keepin' it real." After I affirmed that yes, I had noticed that -- she said, "Do you know why they have to do that? They do it...and you do it, because so many people don't keep it real. So many in leadership aren't transparent, Deanna. That's why all these people speaking here feel an urge to declare their transparency.." I let her know that usually when I say, "I'm just kee

What To Do First to Make a Profit

The PF Women Team at our Annual Team Retreat  ~ 2018 Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said: It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way. Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory! I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started inve
