Hi, my name is Doris and welcome to my blog, Walking Deeper. Thanks for visiting!

Walking Deeper is all about encouraging, equipping, and engaging women to walk deeper in faith, and in relationship with Jesus Christ. Walking Deeper is about community.

We are finding encouragement through God’s Word, and using our spiritual gifts and talents to make a difference in the world.

We all have a sphere of influence. God places us where we are for a reason.

I’m a leader in women’s ministry, writer, and speaker who loves encouraging women to flourish in their calling and purpose. God has plans for each one of us, isn’t that exciting? God knows us personally, and He is calling us to know Him.

I typically write blog posts two or three times weekly, sharing about common joys and challenges we women face every day. I encourage your comments, because you may share what someone else needs to here.

I blog about:

  • Spiritual encouragement for family life, work life, and just plain life
  • Ways to overcome the overwhelming through God’s Word
  • Difficult seasons and circumstances, and how God carries us through
  • Relevant ways to apply truth to our every-day lives
  • Encouraging ways to use spiritual gifts to share God’s truth with others

I invite you to subscribe to Walking Deeper, and receive encouraging posts right to your email inbox!

As a devoted follower of Jesus, I’m passionate about discipling women of all generations by encouraging them to walk deeper in faith. As a Women’s Ministry leader and lay counselor, I am blessed to assist women in discovering and using their spiritual gifts for ministry.

Counseling and encouraging women through the Word is a joy, and we all need encouragement don’t we?  I spend several days a week working on staff in our church office, and on Thursday evenings, leading a women’s Bible study/Life Group.

A wife, mom, and soccer Gammy, I stay joyfully busy. You might find me hanging out with the kids in the tree-house or shooting hoops. I love to read, travel with my awesome hubby of over 30 years, and cook for the whole gang. Not much of a baker though, but I’m working on it!




One of my favorite quotes is “You are never too old to set another goal, or to dream a new dream.” ~ C.S. Lewis
