Deborah’s Words

Plunging into the Heart of Love By: Susan Deborah Schiller I’m deep below the surface again, down under the threatening waves of anger, hurt, depression, and the seemingly endless stream of bad news. But it’s not my battle this time around.  I’m here with a sister plunging below the surface to find the heart of love. I know she’s going […]

The Ride of Your Life By: White Dove "Saddle up your horses and get ready to ride! It's the ride of your life," my heavenly Father whispered. It was early morning and bitterly cold and I was snuggled under a fuzzy blanket writing in my journal. Until then, I had never been around horses, but […]

As Heaven Sees Me By White Dove "How do I begin to tell my story?" is a common question we all ask ourselves.

We know what it is to lose everything, including family, reputation, jobs, finances, credibility… Where do we begin […]

A Quantum Leap By: White Dove Just before first light, I awakened with the thought, “Take a quantum leap!” Startled, I arose from bed and fired up my computer, plugging in “definition quantum leap”. Merriam-Webster defines the term: “An abrupt change, sudden increase, or dramatic advance.“ In November of 2006, I attended a conference where David Van […]

The Saving, Preserving Side of a Fiery Trial By: White Dove As our truck wound up the dirt path to the watch tower, my daughter and I had an up close encounter with a controlled burn. The fire and smoke may appear intense but only the ground is lit with fire.  A controlled burn protects […]

In Case of Sudden Disaster, Grin! By: White Dove “I’m grooming you to grin in the face of disaster,” said Papa God as I made my daily fear-dump in a worn out leather journal. Escaping a cult-church and an abusive husband at the same time had left me isolated, wrestling the growing pack of fear […]

Quest To See Beyond By: White Dove My eyes are in a state of wonder. The sky today is a deep cerulean blue; the sun is peeking from the towering bull pines and lodge poles, towering more than 50 feet tall. In the distance is a tree-lined mountain peak, usually snow-capped, but in August it’s finally all green. […]

Diving into the Unknown: Is it Safe? By: White Dove I don't trust my own thinking anymore, but I am learning to trust myself. My deeper self, hidden deep in the core of my being.  That part of me that exists beyond Time and Space. My soul. In my dreams that part of myself leaps […]

Behind the Veil By: White Dove I wake up today between worlds. I'm not the survivor I used to be, because I don't see victory in fighting anymore. Not on the material plane. Not in the legal courtooms. Not in custody battles. The old world needed warriors. The new world needs peacemakers. "Blessed are the […]

Renewal by Design By: White Dove Renewal, for me, happens when I enter the unknown.  For me, it’s “renewal by design” as I intentionally trade the safe route for the unknown.  One early spring-like day, I was on my first “dot-dot-dot” road, which means sometimes there’s a path and sometimes not. The map uses dots to warn you the road will be […]

  "Who Do You Say I Am?" By: White Dove "You become who you behold," God once whispered into my heart. My gaze so often was focused on negative circumstances, opposition, and oppression in my life.

Finding Beauty in the Dark Places  By: White Dove I remember the day my husband abandoned me alongside the road in a desert, and it felt like a grenade had exploded in my abdomen. The pain cut from my neck to my belly, both physically and emotionally, ripping my gut wide open, even taking my voice away. […]
