Deanna grew up in a small town north of Guelph as the oldest of six kids. Her parents took her to church each Sunday and taught her about God. At age eight, Deanna quietly prayed to God asking him to forgive her and asking Jesus to save her, but the significance of that decision would not be fully realized for many years. When she married her husband, Joel in 2006, they found and joined Harvest Bible Chapel. Through solid teaching and an excellent community, Deanna was faced with the reality of her sinfulness and the magnitude of God’s holiness which became a turning point in her walk with Christ.
Deanna is the proud mom to five beautiful children and despite not having much free time to speak of, always enjoys reading a good novel, hiking through the woods, and having long talks over coffee with her husband.
Deanna has the words “Study. Do. Teach.” in the margin of her bible at Ezra 7:10 “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.” This reminds her of the importance of reading God’s Word, being changed by God’s Word, and teaching God’s Word to encourage growth in the church and to show the way of salvation to the lost.
