Deborah Smith and her husband Ricky attend the HCF Plainview campus. They have been coming to Harvest for 10 years. Deborah and Ricky eloped in 1993: “We didn’t realize it was ‘arraignment day’ at the courthouse, so we waited for the judge in the midst of inmates in shackles and jumpsuits!” They have one son, Logan. Deborah enjoys reading, catching bigger fish than Ricky, and hosting family get-togethers.

I’m passionate about encouraging other women! We need to be elevate each other!
What is one quirky fact about you?
