We want you to get to know the awesome leadership we have at Desert Springs at our Tuesday Morning Bible Studies. Our Table Leaders study the Word, direct discussion at the tables, and pray fervently for you…EVERY WEEK!!!
MEET THE TABLE LEADER: DEBBIE EWALD
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
I am married to Dave; we have been married for 29 years. We lived in the Phoenix area the first time in the late 90’s (1994-1999) and just moved back here in May. We love living here and are thrilled to be back. We have 2 grown children: Josh & Jenna. Josh lives here in the Phoenix area and is married to his wife, Cassandra. They have one son, Whitman, & are expecting a second child. Our daughter Jenna lives in Arlington, VA and is single. She graduated from BIOLA University in 2014.
I am a stay at home wife. Dave works out of our home when he is not traveling. He has spent the last many years traveling with his job, so it is really great to get to be home when he is in town. We enjoy walking in the morning, going to movies, traveling, exploring new & different places, eating out, and spending time with family. I really enjoy being involved with women’s ministries & love being in Bible study.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN AT DESERT SPRINGS & HOW DID IT BECOME HOME TO YOU?
Our son has been attending DSCC for several years, and we visited there when we were in town. When we moved back to AZ, we were thrilled to be able to start attending DSCC and call it our church home.
WHERE ARE YOU SERVING AT DSCC?
I am serving at DSCC as a table leader for women’s Bible study. Dave & I also attend an adult Bible study on Sunday mornings and are in a Lifegroup.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE VERSE & WHY?
There are SO many:
For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him – 2 Chronicles 16:9 NIV
You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord Himself, is the Rock eternal – Isaiah 26:3-4 NIV
But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. – Isaiah 40:31 NIV
But now, this is what the Lord says – He who created you, Jacob, He who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. – Isaiah 43:1-3 NIV
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! – Ephesians 3:16-21
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made know to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. – Philippians 4:6-7 HCSB
I chose these verses because they ALL speak to the relationship that I am so BLESSED to have in Him. He is always there for me, helping me, encouraging me, watching over me, protecting me. He knows everything about me and STILL loves me. That is mind boggling to me to think about. I am so very thankful that God desires to have relationship with me, that I am His adopted daughter. It is my prayer that I will desire more every day to spend time with Him.
If you see Debbie around, be sure to say “HI!”
