As an artist, teacher, writer, and coach, Deborah Gall seeks to facilitate God’s unconditional love and the empowering freedom of Jesus’ death and Resurrection. She is longs to see others set free to soar as who God created them to be and in what He created them to do. Her message is rooted in her own journey full of twists, turns, and “blender moments,” which God used to show her that he is so much more that she had ever imagined.
Through her personal path of freedom and discovery, the redemptive power of the Gospel enabled Deborah to fly freely to discover her God-given identity and destiny. Even her painting reflect her belief in and experience of the freedom available through Christ, as they speak directly to the heart through the use of light, color, and prophetic imagery. Whether speaking, prophesying, ministering inner healing, coaching, or painting, Deborah’s approach is always to bring more of Jesus into the situation. Continually seeking the so much more of God, who He created her to be, and what He created her to do, has led Deborah to never be satisfied with status quo. She constantly asks, “What’s next Lord?”
That very question has carried her through multiple careers and has given her expertise in business, teaching, speaking, creating visual art, studying and writing. In 2014, after decades as a professional visual artist, she responded to the Lord’s direction to switch from running a full-time art business to founding a full-time art ministry. Deborah’s ministry, Abide Studio is dedicated to helping others find their way to the so much more of the Lord and what He has for them.
