Debie Thomas is one of our favorite speakers at our Women's Spirituality Group. She is wise, down-to-earth and honest, and she embodies these qualities in her writing and speaking. Debie listens deeply to the participants and to God, bridging the gap between the two with clarity and power. She also helps us to do some holy wrestling with God even as she shares her own sparring matches! We are always refreshed, hopeful and reconnected with both our own selves and our amazing God when we spend time with Debie.

Debie Thomas is an excellent presenter for retreats about spirituality and writing. She has a gentle and graceful way of helping people to open up to their own gifts and talents. She provides tools, ideas and resources for participants to gain confidence and successfully continue along their chosen path of spirituality and creative expression. I'm looking forward to hearing more from Debie in the years to come.
