About Debbie Smith

2Debbie Smith is a woman on a mission for God.  At the age of 7, she migrated to the United States from the beautiful island of Grenada, also known as the Spice Island.   Her parents were determined to provide a better future and knew opportunities back home were limited.  Debbie was taught at an early age that the key to success was education.  As such she obtained her Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and went on to obtain a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management.  Never quite finding a place where she fit in, she knew there had to be something more. After many years in Corporate America, Debbie lost her job and made a decision that she would never allow someone to have that kind of control over her time, finances, or future ever again.   She recognized that she could not successfully be the wife and mother God had called her to be if she spent most of her time commuting just so she could build someone else’s dream.

When Debbie first came to America, she was very shy and because of her West Indian accent, she was constantly bullied.  As a result she did not like to speak in front of anyone. It was hard for her to make friends and she rarely participated in class.  But God indeed has a sense of humor and He had a great plan for Debbie’s life.  God has taken that shy girl who was terrified to speak in front of a crowd and has gifted her with the skill of public speaking.  Today, Debbie travels across the US for speaking engagements.  Passionate about helping others reach their full potential, she enjoys speaking to people about dreaming again and living a purpose-driven life.

As a wife and mother, Debbie believes God has a definite plan for her life.  She has given the Lord full permission to use her as He will and she is very excited about what the future holds.
