Doreen Button began working as a volunteer for EPM in 2006, helping Randy with Deception and 50 Days of Heaven. Her first assignment, after being asked to join the staff in October 2008, was to organize Randy’s notes (several hundred pages!) into what eventually became If God Is Good—Faith in the Midst of Suffering and Evil. Editing Randy’s books, articles, and the occasional sermon is her main responsibility. Her favorite assignments include trimming word count, compiling Randy’s work to be used in new ways, and choosing appropriate Scripture.
Being blessed with a job that allows her to work from home and to immerse herself in God’s Word, and the writing of godly men like Randy Alcorn, C.H. Spurgeon, A.W. Tozer, C.S. Lewis and others is something Doreen is grateful for every workday.
Doreen loves the fresh air and taking long walks with her American Bulldog in the woods and fields close to home. Hobbies, in addition to constantly reading, are decorating custom cakes, exploring new cities and countries, and enjoying her grandchildren. She has three children, including twin sons—the eldest by 20 minutes is a Podiatrist who lives with his wife and two children in PA. Her other son is an electrical engineer—also married—and they're expecting their baby girl's arrival any day. Their daughter is a pastry chef in AZ where she lives with her husband, has two children, and is expecting a baby girl in August.
