Children's Ministry Coordinator, Debbie Bernard

Deborah is the Godly Play Storyteller for The Table. Born in Lake Stevens, Washington, she attended Multnomah School of the Bible, then got her degree in Journalism from WWU. She wrote for The Bellingham Herald before she and her husband Joseph went to Alaska and managed a general store and post office in the oilfields of Deadhorse for decades. Now they’re back in Bellingham. Joseph is gleefully retired and Deborah loves her jobs as Admin at First Presbyterian Church in Bellingham and as The Table’s storyteller. She is writing her memoir, You Can’t Beat a Deadhorse. They dote on their nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, Godchildren, and all the children that God brings into their lives.
