As an author, speaker, Bible teacher, and former counselor with Lighthouse Ministries, Debbie W. Wilson has helped hundreds of women find victory in life’s battles.

Not only is our world in chaos, some of us add the additional pressure of being hard on ourselves. I help women—especially overachievers—give themselves a break and experience spiritual rest in their personal lives and relationships with others and with God.

This and That

My husband, Larry Wilson, lassoed my heart at a summer project in Colorado when we were on staff with the high school ministry of Cru (then called Campus Crusade for Christ). Together we co-founded Lighthouse Ministries of Raleigh, NC in 1991 where I continue to serve as a Bible teacher and served for 24 years as a biblical counselor.

My ministry now consists of writing, speaking, speaker/writer coaching, and leading Bible studies.

Our two grown children are our best friends. Our two standard poodles add a dash of affection and fun and have been know to inspire my writing. Beauty—whether from nature, fresh flowers, art, or interior design—energizes me. Dark chocolate and I have a love-hate relationship. And when the air is sweet, I dream of Narnia.

Professional Brief

My twenty-four years spent working as a biblical counselor showed me God’s principles work when they are understood and applied. I write to help people experience God in their challenges. Here is a list of my books:

Being certified as an AWSA (Advanced Writers and Speakers Association) writing and speaking coach, a member of AWSA, CAN (Christian Author’s Network), and Jerry Jenkins Writers Guild have enriched my writing and speaking ministry. 

I received a B.S. in Nutrition from Georgia Southern University and served on the staff of the high school ministry (Student Venture) of Campus Crusade for Christ (CRU) in Boston, Indianapolis, Oklahoma City, and Orange County, California. I earned a Certificate in Biblical Studies at The International School of Theology in San Bernardino, California and studied biblical counseling at Scope Ministries in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

It has been a pleasure to serve the local churches I’ve been a part of through teaching and leadership. Larry and I participated with Scope Ministries at Billy Graham’s conferences for itinerant evangelists, “Amsterdam ’86” and “Amsterdam 2000.” I also served on the steering committee for Anne Graham Lotz’s conference in Raleigh, “Just Give Me Jesus.” I also completed Dan Miller’s 48 Days Facilitator Certification Program, the SCORE speakers training.
