Debbie was not only engaging; her content about the subject matter of fear is great and very needed among women! The information is clear, easy to understand and relevant to every woman’s life. Her tools to fight fear are specific and practical for easy implementation into my life and into those I coach. I highly recommend her for your future speaking needs. You will be equipped and blessed!” ~ Arnita Taylor, M.T. (ASCP), MSL Leadership Development Coach and Speaker; EIGHT Ministries, DFW

“Debora Coty was just what our church needed at the time.  Our pastor of 25 years passed a few weeks before her scheduled engagement and we can’t thank her enough for speaking at our women’s luncheon under such circumstances.  She was able to share her gift of wit and humor at a very stressful time for us. Debora’s topic, “Too Blessed to STAY Stressed,” was just what we needed to hear. Due to her insight and encouragement, before the luncheon was over we knew we were truly blessed. We consider Debora a friend and look forward to her next speaking event with us.”  ~ Carolyn Gutierrez, Women’s Ministry Leader, Holly Springs Baptist Church, Franklin, North Carolina

“Our sixth through twelfth grade students thoroughly enjoyed Mrs. Coty’s presentation of A Writer’s Journey. They were inspired by the fun, practical writing tips and guidelines Mrs. Coty offered through her own writing journey, and her captivating book had them eager to read on. Her personal example is an encouragement to writers of any age – how to create stories that are both well-written and inspirational. We are looking forward to having her back to challenge and inspire our students once again.” ~Anna Ballard, English/Literature teacher, Trinity Christian School, Opelika, AL

“The moderate as well as voracious readers in our homeschool group were highly encouraged by Debora Coty’s presentation of “A Writer’s Journey.” God was definitely in the details of Debora’s journey and the students did not miss Him. From a teacher’s perspective I was glad to hear Debora’s explaining metaphors, similes, double entendre, and concise writing – all tops on my agenda for our current group Shakespeare study. Debora’s positive suggestions for stronger non-fiction writing helped the children gain confidence for improving their topical reports as well as for taking on the challenge of writing fiction. The dramatic reading of the tense scene from A Distant Shore highlighted everything Debora taught them about showing, not telling. My daughter finished The Distant Shore in three days and can’t wait for the sequel, Billowing Sails. Thanks, Debora, for sharing your expertise, your life and your story with us.” ~Dinah Davis, Homeschool Educator, Highlands, NC

“Thank you Debbie for your wonderful presentation to our homeschool group. The excitement and enthusiasm you have is contagious! It was so much fun to watch the kids “getting it”.

I know we were.” ~Lise Dews, Homeschool Educator, Cashiers, NC

“Your presentation for the Writer’s Workshop at the Seffner/Mango Library was a huge success. Twenty-three prospective writers, young and old, were mesmerized by your style, which was peppered with humor. Your content and spontaneous personality generated such contagious enthusiasm to the attendees, they left with eagerness to put pen to paper. All of the very positive written evaluations asked for more workshops from you in the future and we will certainly comply. Thank you so much and we are so proud to have an author of your stature and caliber as a resident of Seffner.” ~Charmaine Andrews, President, Friends of the Seffner/Mango Library
