Deb DeArmond has worked in the field of learning and development for more than 25 years.  A certified executive coach, she has trained in corporate settings across the nation and around the world in areas of leadership, communication, conflict resolution and relationship building. Although she has been active in ministry throughout her life, God redirected DeArmond’s focus in 2011 — to use these skills and abilities to minister to the body of Christ.

DeArmond’s first book, Related by Chance, Family by Choice: Transforming Mother-in-Law and Daughter-in-Law Relationships combines her expertise in communication and relationships with her heart for ministry. She is co-founder of My Purpose Now,  a website devoted to Christian women 50+, and also blogs about Family Matters on her own website.

DeArmond is married to her high school sweetheart, Ron, who led her to Jesus 40 years ago. She is Mom to three incredible sons, three fabulous daughter-in-loves, and Gigi to three perfect grandsons. She considers her family to be an incredible gift from the Lord and spending time together doing life tops her list of favorites. However, she makes it clear, “Jesus is my favorite, and the guys have learned to live with it.”

Native Californians who have lived in Texas for 9 years, Deb and Ron live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area. She loves to travel, and considers herself a foodie. Her idea of the perfect job would be to travel on someone else’s dime, writing about her experiences, and eating her way around the world!
