breath of life handmade tyler texas tx zack and farrel debaltzoMy name is Farrel, I’m from East Texas, and I’m an author-in-the-making, an avid sweet tea (no ice) enthusiast, a lover of all things words and lemon, furmama to Aslan Bear, and wifey to the other half of my soul

But above all else, I’m a blood-bought daughter of the One True King, snatched from the fire by His amazing grace. My story, woven throughout the pages of this space, is one of redemption, new life, and our Father’s incredible, incomprehensible love.

My husband, Zack, and I were both born with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic and life-threatening illness that affects the lungs and digestive systems of only 70,000 people worldwide… And one our parents were told would take our lives at 8 and 18 years old. We are now 40 and 37, and to date, the average life expectancy of CF patients is 41 years old. There is no cure. 

Breath of Life Handmade was borne of a miraculous hospital visit toward the tail end of 2022, and inspired by my lifelong battle against CF, my love for all things words, and the breath my Abba continues to give me over three decades past my “expiration date”. And I’ve had so much fun on this new adventure of creating artistic visualizations of His love that I hope will bring joy to your hearts and glory to His name for generations to come.
