Storytelling from the Heart
Debra specializes in spinning tales for adults. She believes a good tale is a graceful and effective teacher and that no one ever outgrows the desire to hear one. Stories help create a bond between one another and are a loving and creative way to relate, to inspire, and even to heal.
A a storyteller, she has discovered that there is a certain comfort, warmth, and coziness in the experience as the listener gently opens to wherever the story leads.
Debra customizes storytelling events for any occasion and venue such as retreat centers, hospitals and hospice, worship centers, women's retreats, bereavement groups, senior centers, and private gatherings. She presents personal and traditional stories, old and new, that embody ideas such as love, compassion, forgiveness, and hope. Listeners have said "I talked about your storytelling for days" and that Debra is "a gifted storyteller," and "down-to-earth, humble and authentic." Her stories "speak to the heart and soul."
