About me is such a funny category, isn’t it? All the more so on a blog called Two Minutes of Grace (which should be anything but about me). :D
I’ve lived in the Mid-West, on the West Coast and in the South.
I’ve been an ice cream dipper; an aid at a long term care facility; a counselor in corrections; an out-patient therapist in a mental health clinic; the director of the National Suicide Prevention Center and two crisis intervention centers; an adoption specialist; and for 22 years, I took a wild joy ride as a Public Speaker and Trainer.
My church background is equally eclectic. I’ve been a very active member of the following denominations, in chronological order: Brethren, E.U.B., Methodist, Independent Bible, Presbyterian and Episcopal. Twice a year for 10 years, I spent a retreat week at a cloistered Abbey (Catholic) on the Mississippi river.
I’m increasingly overwhelmed with the truth of mercy and grace. Using the most simple definitions: Mercy is not getting what I deserve and Grace is getting what I don’t deserve. My hope is that Two Minutes of Grace will be a pilgrimage of the soul that we take together.
Visit here as often or as little as you like. Just know that when you’re here, I’m very glad you came and I welcome you into my heart. ~ Debbie
