about

Deanna Nowadnick

Before my father died, he reminded me that Mom had asked me to write a book. At the time the boys were in college, and the notion of writing was unfathomable. Writers write books. By the time my boys were adults, I’d run out of excuses. I was also at that age when I could pause and reflect.

Fruit of My Spirit: Reframing Life in God’s Grace was my first publishing endeavor. My second was Signs in Life: Finding Direction in Our Travels with God. Both are collections of stories that tell of God’s love and faithfulness. Both tell of His remarkable grace and mercy.

When not writing, I serve as the Client Service Coordinator for The Planner’s Edge, an investment advisory firm in Washington state. I’m active in my church, serving on the Leadership Team and gathering with a wonderful group of ladies to study and giggle over lattes and chocolate. On my desk is a rock with the words “Choose Joy!” etched in it. It’s my inspiration for each day. As an author, it is my hope that my own words might share that joy we find together as children of God.

With Him, it can be so.

Having Those Harder Conversations

Having Those Harder Conversations

My husband watched my “Morning WOLK with God” episode while I sat next to him. When it finished, I remarked that I’d come a long way from my days as a miserably inept lobbyist. Remembering my disastrous time as an Olympia influencer, I regaled him with my story of woe...

God’s Value Proposition

God’s Value Proposition

Earlier this year Jeff Bezos shared what some have called a brutal truth in his last letter to shareholders. According to Inc. Magazine, they are five short words that many never learn. The words? Create more than you consume. Bezos goes on to say that our goal should...

Beautifully Pieced Together

Beautifully Pieced Together

I’m a passionate advocate for words of loving kindness. “Walk the WOLK,” I like to say. Walk the words of loving kindness. But it’s not always easy to walk the WOLK, to walk the words of loving kindness, and often my prayer has been “Change my heart, O God.” Words of...

Those Non-Negotiables

Those Non-Negotiables

My year included some non-negotiables. I try to be careful about have to’s, because I’m a recovering Type A perfectionist—who will be in recovery the rest of my life! For me, a have-to can quickly become “I don’t want to” and “I can’t,” and then I’m planning the pity...

Divine Regifting

Divine Regifting

You’ll often hear me talk about “walking the WOLK,” walking God’s words of loving kindness. When we walk the WOLK, we get to share God’s love, joy, peace, and hope. When we walk the WOLK, we’re part of a divine regifting strategy. Yes, divine regifting. Throughout...

Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You.

On Amazon is a book with the title, Be Bold. Be Brave. Be You. It has 100 blank pages. Yep, blank pages. The description says “Perfect for all ages—kids or adults!” As you would imagine, the point of the book is to record ways you’re bold and brave, ways in which...

Finding Joy

Finding Joy

We all have days that go well; others that don’t. Some of my days have even included lost keys and pinched fingers. Fortunately, we have a God of loving kindness who is there every day, reaching in so we can reach out. Here at Fave Lifestyles I hope to share...

Musical Connections

Musical Connections

So often our days are defined by errands, lots if errands. Some errands are just that—a short trip to the post office, groceries, but some errands are more—for you and for those you’re with. One of my favorite errands each week is picking up my three-year old grandson...

Straightening Our Crown

Straightening Our Crown

In the third chapter of the New Testament book of Titus, Paul reminds us that God’s loving kindness was/is our saving grace. When we “walk the WOLK,” when we walk God’s words of loving kindness (WOLK), we get to shine God’s light, share His grace, His forgiveness, His...

When an Errand’s More Than an Errand

When an Errand’s More Than an Errand

​ Several weeks ago I had a special errand. My friend Michol was taking the train back from a short trip to Eastern Washington. I asked to pick her up at the train station, not wanting her to arrive and then catch a bus back to Monroe. I know we’re all wearing masks...

Morning WOLK with God

Morning WOLK with God

In November I had the joy of hosting our first “Morning WOLK with God” here at Fave Lifestyles. Yes, Morning WOLK with God. No, I did not misspell WOLK. I’m a passionate advocate for words of loving kindness. “Walk the WOLK,” I like to say. Walk the words of loving...
