Welcome Friends!

I'M DEA! ~ Connector, Communicator & Cultivator

Hey, I'm Dea, thanks for stopping by.

 

Did you find your way here because you are a parent looking for the GPS, the roadmap, for parenting? Are you wanting more clarity, confidence and calmness in your role of training the next generation? Or, are wanting guidance in creating an atmosphere of success in your home? I'v been there, done that!

Growing up in a small MS town taught me about belonging. Since 1974 I, along with my husband, have lived in 15 homes in 5 Southern states, raising 8 children and pastoring multiple churches.

 

The one consistent thread throughout all my adventures has been building real community -  in the home, in business, in churches, and on teams.

 

I am a published author, speaker, connector, and Realtor in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC area.

 

I have discovered that real community is not just being connected but about being claimed! (Learn more about C.L.A.I.M.)

I thank you so much for taking a moment of your valuable time to learn about me, and I am excited to get connected!

Blessings!  

Dea

LISTEN TO DEA'S TED TALK
Black Background

Does the digital age threaten our connectedness? Do families still have meals that gather everyone around the table or has the magic of the meal faded?

 

Is it generational? Is it economics? Maybe life has gotten too busy and hectic with work or children’s sports events, the business “grind’ or school activities to make time for family meals.

 

But, history shows that a meal can make a difference. Dea Irby set out on a journey to find the magic of the meal and answer these questions.

What she discovered surprised her. She will share results of the journey, her findings and the process for maximizing our human experience that may lead you to new places.   Enjoy this conversation titled "The Magic of the Meal" by Dea Irby at TedX Ashburn.
