Hi! I’m Deanna Nowadnick. I’m a writer here at Fave Lifestyles. I’m also the host of our Sunday night, “Conversations on the Purple Couch”. I love helping women of faith connect our delightfully ordinary stories to God’s extraordinary love and faithfulness, so that we can be encouraged and empowered, knowing that God’s been in the details—always has been, always will be!
We’ve been in the middle of a very challenging time, a pandemic, and I am determined to see God in the details. Too often I’m not seeing God in the details, I’m seeing Deanna. Too often I’m thinking—I’ve got this.
I don’t “got this.” Even in the best of times, I don’t “got this.” I don’t say that to add to our alarm; I say that to inspire hope, to remind us that our God’s got
this—in the bigger moments, both the scary ones and the beautiful ones and also in the smaller ones, in a single word of hope, a kind gesture of compassion, a small inspiration finds a cure. God remains bigger than our biggest fear, stronger than the strongest virus.
In a favorite Bible verse, we’re told,
I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but I do know that God will provide for us—in ways we never expected, never ever imagined. That can sound namby-pamby in times of stress. That can sound trite in times of loss, but watch for it! I promise you: You will see Him in the details and together we’ll get through it all.

Speaker | Writer | Author
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.
