Theresa Meegan, Ladies Luncheon co-coordinator

Deb spoke for our Ladies Luncheon 3 years ago, and when we were planning this year's luncheon all immediately agreed to have her back. Her warm and caring personality shines through as she speaks from the heart with complete honesty about her own life making her presentation come alive. She shares incredible insights into dealing with "Prickley People", the topic of her presentation, in a way that all of the ladies attending could relate. There were many positive comments being made by the ladies on Sunday following the luncheon.

We really enjoyed having Deb as one of our breakout session speakers at our annual retreat. She spoke on forgiveness, and used visual tools to drive her points home. She was transparent about herself, and easy to follow. She was wonderful about communicating with the staff in the planning stages of the retreat as well.

Deb blessed us the moment she walked in the door. She toolbox time to pray over each place at 14 tables of 6. She joined us for simple meal & was pleased to spend the night in a city with a woman she had never met, me. She was well prepared yet willing to let the Holy Spirit speak. She had handouts, an ice breaker & a message about transforming relationships by loving God, self & others. She shared how God identifies us & Himself and how we could make His vision of us a reality. Deb taught us about the strength, the heart, the mind & the soul of God. She reminded each of us that Hod looks at our inside & says "I delight in you!". Deb encouraged each of us to be Gods ghost writer & to author our own epic masterpiece. She referenced scripture & shared her personal testimony. There were women from age 12 to 90 there. Both ends of the spectrum & those in between said they learned something memorable & helpful in their walk to a closer relationship with Jesus.

Deb offers a unique perspective on how personalities affect goal setting and other areas of life. She offers tips to be successful for each type, as well as yellow flags to consider. Her approach is warm, open, and fun. She relaxes groups and lets individuals make progress without judgment. I highly recommend her!

Thanks so much for speaking at St. John Church's Ladies Advent Brunch Saturday, December 5. It was a blessing to hear your message "Prickly People in the Christmas Story." You explained how Mary and Joseph participated in bringing our Savior into the world despite a "prickly" situation and "prickly" people. The women enjoyed the talk, many saying that it was just what they needed to hear right now. May God continue to bless you in your ministry to women.

What an awesome day! Deb was a joyful, fun person to be around. Her love for the Lord and others radiated from her. All evaluations received back from those attending the seminar spoke very highly of her. Deb was a delight to work with, and a very accomplished speaker. Look forward to having her back in the future.

Deb Potts is a dynamic speaker who passionately shares God's truths. Deb's presentation was entertaining, instructional and engaging. She made us laugh, and she brought us to tears. I highly recommend contacting Deb regarding sharing her insights into loving and serving the Prickly People. She confidently mingled with the hundred plus women in attendance. I hope you will consider allowing Deb, a passionate sister in Christ, to bless your group through her truth filled teachings.

Thank you! I have been struggling and burdened for over a year about something I have had zero control over. I have prayed so often about how to move on. When God revealed my prickly person I knew I could finally LET GO!

I recognized that I was able to believe more in my strengths as a child of God and less in my influence over other people after studying Making Peace wth Prickly People. In my case, to be calm and stable and not emotional is very important when working with women. Loyalty and steadiness are important to me in my daily contacts. I don't like drama, that much I do know. I really got a lot out of the study. Looking forward for you to be able to publish this important guide. Such a good way to look inward and self-correct.

Theresa Meegan, Women's Ministry Leader

Debbie brought an insightful and refreshing message to the Meadowbrook Christian Church Annual Ladies Luncheon. "What To Do When Your Bubble Bursts" gave us spiritual ways to handle difficult spots in our lives while she told stories that made us laugh, proving that God is with us with love and smiles when we need Him most. Debbie graciously provided us with a CD of her talk since we were dealing with a failed sound system, so the CD was useful afterwards for those who couldn't hear the message well. Looking for a Christian motivational speaker on heavy subjects presented with a light heart? Call Deb.

Debbie's presentation on personality types was better than we even hoped for--very worthwhile information. We especially loved her explanation of why Jesus was separated from the Father on the cross. We are going to be talking about the different personalities, encouraging our friends and family members to take the personality test, and referring other groups to this fantastic presenter. Thank you!

Ann Wilson, Teaching Pastor

Deb's that person you would want on any team for any task, whether it be in a serving behind the scene capacity or being the featured speaker. She will do whatever is asked or needed. She is kind, thoughtful, caring, fun, and funny. She always has her eyes on others regardless of what she is going through. She brings the best out of everyone and gives her best. She is comfortable in the spotlight or doing any menial task. She is smart, hardworking, and dependable. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her. She is a wonderful wife, mother, and friend. Her hunger for God is evident to all, and her life inspires others to want to walk with Jesus. Her character is exemplary. She really does remind me of the Proverbs 31 woman.

I first met Deb through the Rochester Toastmaster Club, where I heard her speak and later take on leadership roles within the club. Deb has a sense of calmness and sincerity when she speaks. If you add in her discipline of preparation and topic knowledge, it is a joy to hear her. She has a deep conviction of spirit and beliefs; this coupled with her speaking skills, make for a truly impressive speaker. No matter the size of the group, you always feel that she is speaking just to you. Don't miss the chance to hear her!

Debbie is a wonderful and dynamic speaker. I attended a session she spoke at during one of my chuch's women's retreats and I was so moved by her words! Her delivery is equal parts humor and truth, and she speaks with a conviction that indicates her whole heart and soul are behind her words. Her wisdom and practical application steps on managing relational conflict really hit home for me! I would highly recommend Deb as a speaker and teacher.

We first heard Deb at the Kensington Church SMASH Women's Retreat. Her session was so popular that there were no seats available in her room. I stood outside the window with one of my steering team members and listened to her talk, "Making Peace with Prickly People." Deb was insightful and inspiring. We asked her if she would be willing to talk to our moms' group and she enthusiastically obliged. We have heard lots of positive feedback from the moms in our group and several have asked us to ask her to come back and talk again next year. Deb has a warm, authentic speaking style and is very relevant and engaging. I look forward to hearing her speak again!
