Hello.

I’m Dr. Debi Smith, a California Licensed Psychologist who is passionate about helping Christian couples and single adults learn to apply sound biblical principles and the findings of scientific research to everyday life.

The Dream Begins

At the time, I was thinking seriously about retirement.  I was burned out, and waltzing away on a Hawaiian beach sounded much more appealing than anything else.

Then I asked The Lord what He had in mind for the rest of my life.  I made several ambitious suggestions.  At least they seemed ambitious to me.  But each time I presented an idea to The Father, He replied,

“No. Bigger.”

One day in the spring of 2014, I was sitting in my car waiting to meet a friend for dinner.  With time on my hands and no place to go, I pulled out my journal and started writing.

“You want ‘Bigger’?”
“How’s this for ‘Bigger’?”

My In-Your-Face Moment with God

As I sat there in the late afternoon sun,
I scratched out everything I could think of.

Then said, “How’s that?”

The Father simply smiled with pleasure and delight.
How does He do that?


Dining with friends a few months later, I learned that The Perfect Property already exists in South Orange County. It doesn’t belong to us, but we hang out there to pray. To listen for The Lord’s voice. So we’ve posted photos to help you visualize The Dream, too.


I’m happy to share with you The Dream that The Father gave me that day.

How it will happen only He knows.
