Renaissance Women of Nowata County

Some of you will ask what is a renaissance woman. A Renaissance Woman is one who embraces her place in this world and uses her talents to enrich not only her life but all those around her. This woman finds her inner strengths in her faith and lives her life has an example for her friends, her neighbors and her family. One of the many renaissance women here in the Nowata Area is Debbie Delozier. Many of you will know this hometown girl with her many talents and pioneer  spirit. While goggling for fellow Oklahoma bloggers a year or so ago, I chanced upon Debbie’s blog, I found this blog to be full of recipes, gardening tales, deep love for her family and good Oklahoma values. Her blog also reflects her deep faith and love of God. I contacted Debbie and set up a face to face interview and she graciously accepted. I went to her “new” workshop on main street to find out about Debbie Delozier and her life.

Debbie has many, many talents which she shares with her friends, family and neighbors. One of those talents is cooking and she has catered a few events around town. I firmly believe that Debbie could write a cookbook and if she reading this, I encourage her to do so and would be the first in line at the first book signing.  Please check out her recipes and  tips on her blog.

Yet another talent of Debbie’s is making stain glass art. Her art reveals her love of color, design and beauty. The day I was at her workshop, she was teaching her cousin the art of stain glass. While we three ladies talked, I felt like I had known them most of my life and that we shared a common sense of the world.

Debbie gardens from the heart and shares in her blog, here Debbie’s love of gardening and cooking collide. She uses the fruits of the earth and makes delicious recipes. I get a sense that the vegetables and flowers are not the only ones growing in her garden. Like so many other gardeners, Debbie grows her inner peace while digging in the dirt. The photographs of her garden on her blog are so lush green and full of vivid colors; the plants seem to almost jump off the page.

Debbie is happily married to the love of her life and has two fantastic young women as daughters. Her love for her extended family shines through her blog andI believe that Debbie’s best contribution to this life, is her love and kindness that blossoms forth in her daily interactions with other people. 

When I think of Debbie, a verse in Proverbs comes to mind.

“A wife of noble character who can find? She is far worth more than rubies. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is  on her tongue. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. ” Proverbs 31:10, 26, 28
