Welcome to the Even Deeper Blog!!!



I can remember vividly the very first time I felt this “call” from within to go into the deep end of our local swimming pool. It was 8 feet deep and WAY over my head! Part of me wanted to stay in the comforts of the safer waters, but the other part of me longed for the deep. And, man, when I started seeing everybody else enjoying the deep, it made the longing that much stronger! 

Maybe some of us feel that way about life. We know that there is more than we are experiencing and we are mixed with the feelings of what going deeper might require, and the compelling invitation to go deeper, that lingers in our souls. We see other people at a deeper place, and long for it, but are not really sure how to get there.

In Psalm 42: 7 says, “Deep calls to deep.” This is referring to what we may often see at the beach when one wave follows another wave without intermission. God’s longing for intimacy with you calls out from the depths of His heart, to the depths of yours. God longs for you to go out into the deeper waters of relationship with Him, and take others with you. He wants to take you deeper into His heart. Wave upon wave. There IS so much more, and your Abba wants to give it to you.

What will you find in these depths with God? The abundant life you have always wanted! John 10:10 says, “I have come so that they can have life and have it to the fullest!” You were created to live a fulfilling and vibrant life, even in the midst of what the world throws at you! You were created to live from the inside out, not the outside in! And we want to help you find it! Because if that’s what Jesus came to give us, then, let's go after it together!

That is what this blog site is all about: gathering a sisterhood of women and encouraging them to experience the life they’ve always wanted and to help others do the same.

There will be a variety of things you will experience, that will hopefully be compelling and lead to great discussion, sharing with others, and even life-change. Cause we all need that!  We will talk mainly about our relationship with God and others, but will also talk marriage, parenting, self-care body soul and spirit, recipes, reaching out to serve others, and more! While there will certainly be times we venture off the road (because I am definitely a rabbit chaser……squirrel! name the movie!), most blogs will be centered around living at a deeper place with the Father. And we all need to learn from each other to experience that, right? We hope that you will jump right in and start, or join, the conversations, so that we can grow together and then go together, and make a difference in our world, as He makes a difference in us!

So, tell your friends! Subscribe if you haven’t! You will receive all updates straight to your inbox! And the perk is that subscribers always get the news first, AND, the free stuff! So, quit standing on the edge of the pool! Sure the kiddie pool seems safer, but check out the fun everyone’s having in the deep end! The Deep is calling! Last one in is a rotten egg!

Who’s with us?!!



What might be holding you or others back from jumping into the deep with the Lord?

My word from the Lord recently was about water.

I can relate to the Woman at the Well ( John 4). When Jesus asked her,

"Will you give me a drink "? She couldn't believe this Jew was even talking to her, a Samaritan, and then she replies, " you have nothing to draw water with and the well is deep". How many times have I felt the well is too deep even for Jesus- the need is too deep,the sin is too deep, my unworthiness is too deep ,my fear is too deep,,, the list could go on and on. What a beautiful picture of grace! Jesus knew the depth of her sin and yet He offered her The…

Y’all fear holds so many of us back! Fear of “what if I fail?” “What if people think I’m over the top?” “What if I lose friendships over it?” And the list goes on and on! Scripture says it is the love of God that compels or constrains is! God’s loving presence is greater than our fear! Fear can paralyze us or propel us to do things we never thought we could! I am living proof that if you’ll step through your fear, there is SO much more that awaits you on the other side!!!!

You hit the nail on the head when you said “fear”. Fear of failure (a big one for me) fear of man. Fear of rejection. You name it! The enemy hates you, and LOVES fear! I believe it’s one his strongest tactics.

Deep water is a good word Jena. Thank you for your heart for women and working hard at creating a space for us to band together and support each other. Let's face it life is hard. But God is so good. Deep water speaks volumes to me because I remember this time just last year I was in the deep up to my eyeballs of adoption trauma/drama and not knowing how/where the next step would come or lead or how it would all turn out but God did. There was a message by Priscilla Shirer that I remember listening to that has stuck with me ever since. She said God is calling your fishing boat out into the deep water--the…

I first met you many years ago at the Couples‘ Retreats at Ridgecrest near Asheville, NC. My late husband, David Broome, and I were part of a group that came every year from Indian Springs Baptist Church in Kingsport, TN. That group included Ron and Peggy Leonard, whom I am sure you and Dale remember from the times you two shared with visits for seminars at ISBC. Sadly, both David and Ron have left this world to live with Jesus, but we know we will again see each other in Heaven when our earthly time is over. I received your blog invitation to join as we as women “jump into the deep” with the Lord, and I long for that…
