Inspiring Stories: Debi Walker and Andrea Lennon
In this episode, Andrea sits down with a friend from Arkansas Baptist Children and Family Ministries, Debi Walker. Debi serves as the director of family care, whose personal story has impacted her day-to-day ministry. She tells her life story as she speaks about the hope that can only be found in Jesus. The two conclude the episode talking about this year's Inspire Women's Conference on September 24. The deadline to register is September 19.
In 1999, Debi’s life trajectory changed in a way that she would not have chosen for herself. Within moments her identity changed from that of wife and mother to widow and single mother. She quickly realized she could not do this alone and upon reflection, realized that God put key people in her life to help encourage and point her to Him. Her journey has been one of growth, but also failures and learning experiences. Debi’s passion is to help others navigate through life’s stresses by encouraging them to deepen their relationship with God, while learning to depend on Him in a new way. God has blessed Debi with a wonderful family. She has two amazing daughters, one awesome son-in- law, and three precious grandchildren. Debi led Women’s Ministry at FBC Brinkley for 7 years before serving with Arkansas Baptist Children and Family Ministries. Before her current role, she served as Relief Houseparent for Paragould Emergency Receiving Home, as well as Resident Manager at Jonesboro Family Care Home. She is currently pursuing a M.A. in Biblical Counseling at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and is the author of the Bible study, Desired Haven.
