A dozen for her birthday

The second of our dozen portraits of Deanne: This one comes from Spring, 2006. The church youth group wanted to go canoeing. Deanne, committed to a life of adventure as she was, came along as an additional adult so that the kids could have their outing.

"Offer your body as a living sacrifice," Paul said. Deanne has put hers on the line in many kinds of ministry. Along the way, lots of boys and girls have drawn strength from her example and her wise counsel.

A dozen for her birthday

Another picture of Deanne as we count down to her birthday. This one is from c. 2006, in our last year at Tanner Valley. It shows her at her best: fully caffeinated. I don't remember her as particularly interested in coffee when we first met; of course, I despised coffee when we first met. But over the years, tastes change. Mine certainly did. As for Deanne, she certainly has a strong interest in coffee now -- or should I say, an interest in strong coffee.
