Don’t listen to ‘the world.’ Listen to Deby. ‘The world’ tells us faith oppresses, smothers self-worth, and leads to guilt and neurosis. Deby tells us loving God brings peace, joy, and freedom, while affirming everything true, good, and beautiful within us. We are God’s work of art. He looks at us and smiles. Thanks, Deby, for tenderly yet powerfully reminding us that - as Jesus whispered - in the end, it’s all about love.

Deby Sansone Schlapprizzi has written a series of reflections for women whose message is acknowledging and then deeply coming to know the vision that God has for us. Deby uses the majestical word ‘splendor’ that describes what was instilled in us from the very beginning of time. She exhorts us to find our inner voice and to follow that voice, not the myriad voices that we’re deluged with daily from outside of ourselves. As a psychologist, I have come to realize that this is the path to attaining both psychological and spiritual maturity.
Deby Schlapprizzi has tapped into the eternal Gospel message for all women that began with Eve and ended with Blessed Mary, the Mother of God - women were created by magnificent God to bring about His plan for humanity that encompasses Love, Joy, and Trust. When we women partake in this ‘Intimacy with God,’ we discover true ‘Splendor.’ Thank you, Deby, for this gift from God.
