Praying For Deedee

This is my friend Deedee and I am so excited to introduce you to her today. She is an awesome woman of God who's determined purpose in life "is to know Him". After you read this post, go get to know her better at her site.


Deedee is an amazing godly woman who leads a huge women's ministry at BAF, my former church. From the moment I met Deedee several years ago, I knew she was someone that I wanted to be friends with immediately. She has a warm and fun personality that makes others so comfortable in her presence. What I learned soon after our first meeting is that that warmth came from time spent in the presence of her heavenly Father. She spoke encouragement into my life more than a few times, and she seems to do that with a whole lot of gals around this city and I'm sure around the country.

Deedee is a wife, a mother, a mother-in-love, a friend, a leader, a writer, no an excellent writer, a fabulous singer, and most of all a genuine friend to so many girls. I watched her take a fantastic women's ministry to a level of excellence which was completely amazing to see. She continues to grow and invest in the lives of thousands of women on a weekly basis. I could go on and on, but I want to get to something very important that is going on in Deedee's life right now.


Deedee was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. When I found out through her post here, I was shocked. Not by the diagnosis as much as I was by her attitude of gratitude amidst the trial. She was actually excited for the opportunity to get to know her God even more, what he would show her about his character and who He truly is. Amazing! So many ladies look to Deedee as a wise counselor and leader, and she never hesitates to point them to the true counselor, healer, and leader of her life, Jesus Christ.

Please join me in prayer for Deedee. She is having surgery this Wednesday, and nothing would bring more joy this Thanksgiving week than for Deedee to be healed completely from her cancer. May God comfort her and give her peace in the following days. May He strengthen her body for her road ahead, and may God be glorified through it all.

Sweet Friend, I love you so! Thanks for asking your blog buddies to pray. What comfort to share this journey with precious women that love the same God I do!

Susie, you couldn't have described Dee Dee any better than how you did. She is such a godly, loving, humble, giving, beautiful woman and not only does she know who she is in Christ, but WHOSE she is. I cannot think of another living woman who is as close to depicting the Proverbs 31 woman, as Dee Dee. Thank you for doing this. You too are an awesome woman and one of my best friends, and I love you. God bless!

PS: Hope Skip is feeling better.

Susie, Your description of Deedee was remarkable. I have known her since back in high school and I must say the moment I met her she has always inspired me. She is who has directed me to know God more. She is a wonderful women and a wonderful friend and I will keep her and her family in my prayers and they travel through this journey. Thank you.
