We often believe things about ourselves that do not line up with God's truth. We think our worth is based on performance or possessions, that we have to be perfect to be loved, or that we're too ordinary to be used by God. Deeper tears down these lies and teaches women to replace them with four truths from Psalm 139--God knows me, he protects me, he made me, he values me.
Using compelling narrative and Scripture, Deeper helps women transform their lives by trusting in the reality of God's love. Instead of striving for perfection and worth, readers can rest in the truth that they are his.

On July 19 and 20, 2013, I had the privilege to hear Debbie Alsdorf speak at our Write to Inspire Conference in Rancho Cordova, CA. She's got to be one of the most inspirational speakers I have ever heard, and I was so blessed by her presentation. I wish you could have been there. But maybe you sorta can. A lot of what she spoke on is in Deeper. Although principally aimed at women, men could also benefit from the teachings in this beautiful book. Each chapter is a separate story and teaching with handy questions at the end that could even make this a delightful Bible study! I think you will walk away from this teaching walking closer with our wonderful Lord!
