Out of her own post-abortion healing journey, God birthed new life! Her vision for her LifeVictory coaching work is to incorporate the post-abortion recovery ministry into a model for positive social change, to promote life. Her non-profit, LifeVictory Healing & Recovery, a S.O.N. (Serving Our Neighbors) affiliate – Serving Our Neighbors in the Womb and Their Mommies and Daddies, creates opportunities for greater public awareness for those enterprises that help women choose life and bring healing to those who have experienced reproductive grief & loss. Her vision is to build a Coalition NETwork of Kingdom-minded businesses, organizations, churches, faith-based outreach for life, possibilities and compassion.
Based on Deborah’s personal experience and healing journey, she says, “We simply bought into the lie. This lie still continues in our world today - - ‘it’s just a blob of tissue.’ It was a cover-up of epic proportion.” Deborah believes that the time has come to blow the lid off the lies of abortion. She wants to see abortion become UNTHINKABLE through compassionate, non-judgmental education and healing ministries.
Deborah works towards building a culture of life, hope, compassion, and healing in Oregon, in the United States, and worldwide. Women and children deserve better. Men need to be encouraged, equipped, and empowered to be the providers and protectors of women and children, so that women can nurture life in the womb.
Deborah, along with Cindy Brunk, from Hood River, OR, and Tamra Johnson of Portland, OR founded the Please Say My Name Tour, a 683 mile, 36 day walking tour throughout Oregon which took place in the fall of 2010. Deborah completed 480 miles in 25 days. They visited memorial sites for the unborn in Pendleton and around the state, raising awareness and funds for Pregnancy Resource Centers.
Deborah has a passion to see people discover and fulfill their purpose in life. She sees people as the greatest natural renewable resource on the planet. God has given so much creativity to mankind. God has the answer to every single human problem we have, now we must seek Him for the wisdom to address the problems we face in our world today. “Everyone and everything has a purpose and has their own unique level of creativity and contribution to our world, for such a time as this.”
