About Deborah Westbrook

Education: Wesley Theological Seminary

Comment to those looking at my sermons: I try to always draw analogies to everyday life as my congregation is living it. I try to bring the words of Scripture alive and relevant by coming up with modern day "parables" that illustrate, entertain, and tell the story. I often say, "If Jesus were here today, he might have used this example..."

Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach it from the heart, and keep it simple. Use everyday examples everyone can identify with. Only use humor if it’s your gift.

Something funny that happened while preaching: A 3 year old got "loose" from mom, ran up the center isle, stood in front of the pulpit and asked, "When are you going to be done?"

What I want on my tombstone: She really cared about the flock.
