Deborah Rae Stricklin is an author, Bible teacher, professional certified life coach, founder/president of Deborah Stricklin Ministries, college instructor, and ordained minister with the Assemblies of God.

Deborah has written several books, and among those books, L. Edward Hazelbaker served as Editor on the books listed on this page.

Joy in Surrender: Living a Life Surrendered to God

We often try to avoid the painful trials in life. After all, we would prefer to live our Christian lives from victorious moment to victorious moment. But the apostle Peter has challenged us to look at our trials differently: ''Instead, be very glad-for these trials make you partners with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world'' (1 Peter 4:13, NLT). As we embrace our partnership in Christ's suffering and fully surrender our lives to His purposes, this wonderful joy in Christ is ours!

Deborah Stricklin passionately puts her heart into whatever is before her. Her work in authoring this book is no exception. As I read Joy in Surrender, my first thought was, “I cannot wait to put this book in the hands of every person on the World Missions Ministries Council, the leadership of WMM, and each and every missionary in our fellowship.”

Trophies of His Grace: Capture the Goodness and Glory of the Grace of God

Each of us is called to be a trophy of God's grace—in the way we live, in the way we love others, and in the way we follow God. Our lives serve as a testament to who He is and what He has done.

As Deborah walks you through key passages from both the Old and New Testaments, be ready to receive one of God’s best blessings—a greater understanding and experience of His grace. Deborah has received God’s grace into her own life. And in Trophies of His Grace, she has captured the goodness and glory of the grace of God working in the lives of others—lives of ordinary people—and transforming them into God’s own trophies. God’s trophy case has room for you.
