With God’s enablement, my aim is to make Jesus Christ known in a greater way. Through evangelism, discipleship, mentoring, and biblical counseling, I desire to honor Christ and offer comfort to souls. 

I am an advocate for women to glorify God with their hearts and minds. My education includes Principles of Biblical Counseling through BMATS, Track One-Fundamentals and Track Two-Advanced Theology training by Association of Certified Biblical Counselors’ CDT. Certification for Christian Ministry is through Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Certification for Biblical Counseling is also through Southeastern. Currently, you can find me teaching theology classes in my local church as well as mentoring, counseling, and leading small group Bible studies or seminars from home.

In addition, my church has graciously afforded me opportunities to join the ongoing work of global missions. I am grateful our God has allowed me to expand my worldview beyond the cultural boundaries of the Arkansas River valley.

Wife to Russell for over 40 years and a grandmother to five, I have celebrated joys and weathered storms all the while doing life in Christian community. I’ve witnessed God move in astounding ways, both in my personal life and the lives of others.

Thanks for joining me here! From time to time, I share updates, topical and Bible study notes, or book recommendations on my blog. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram at Debbie Swindell – Behind the Desk where I post more frequently.
