About the Founder - Deborah Wolf

I grew up knowing about God the Father but it wasn’t until just before I was to be married that I began the best relationship of my life with Jesus Christ. I battled with my weight forever - and had bouts of anorexia and bulimia throughout my adult years as I tried to measure up to the expectations of others and how I thought I should “look”. In my desire to be skinny for my wedding, and knowing that throwing up wasn’t the answer, I turned to a Christian based weight loss study, where Jesus met me right in the middle of my mess. Not only did he show me HIS GRACE which freed me from the slavery that food and weight had in my life, but he showed me HIS LOVE!!! A LOVE that I could not have imagined. Not based on my behavior, what I looked like, or how I performed, but based on HIS goodness, HIS grace and HIS mercy. WOW! I couldn’t believe it. I remember driving home from the Bible Study one night, and God spoke to me the words of my first Christian song “Feed Me Thy Will”. What was weird was that I also believe I heard Him say that I would write “Worship” songs. Humm… I grew up in the music industry - my mother is an opera singer, one sister played flute, the other has the vocal chords of an angel, and I was a classical pianist and clarinetist at a young age. But at the time, I didn’t even know what a “Worship” song was.

Fast forward several years - and I begin to know what a “Worship” song was. A “Praise” song, right? The songs that churches put up on overheads instead of sing
from the hymnal? The ones where you have a band and a drummer, instead of an organ. Isn’t that a “Worship” song?



I laugh now because God has taught me so much about "Worship" since then. I started out serving on the "Worship" team for several years at my church, and also started a kids “Worship” team. I began writing Contemporary Christian songs, mainly for people who were hurting as a way of giving them a personal note of encouragement. That moved into writing for the church. I starting PraiseWorthy Publishing. Then started writing for my sister Rachelle. But today -- I know a little more about “Worship” -- mainly through the suffering God has allowed me to endure with my husband who was addicted to pain medication and alcohol most of his life. One of my Inspirational Country songs “God Do You Hear Me Crying” was my pleading cry for help when I knew God could perform a miracle but He hadn’t done it yet. Through the pain, God never left my side, and He never abandoned my husband Bill either. He taught me more and more about Grace. And he enabled me to “Worship” him in Spirit and in Truth (John 4:24). The Truth! JESUS. (John 14:6). The one who sets us free (John 8:32).

As I grow in surrender, then I will know “Worship”.

The MISSION: God has given me a mission to share His Grace and Truth through music - Psl 40:3 “He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” My passion is to be an example of a true "Worshipper". I pray that you will join all of our artists and songwriters at PraiseWorthy on the journey to discover what "Worship" really means. And that together we can bring a message of hope to a world in need of a Savior.
