Doreen (Sam) Button
Doreen Button (nickname Sam) 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 Sam is grateful for every workday.
Sam loves one-on-one time with Jesus—enjoying fresh air, long walks, and creating art pieces which reflect her love of God and His creation. She is also on staff with LifeImpact.care using her home as a Life Impact oasis to help keep women in Christian ministry doing what they love by providing respite and renewal. And she is on staff with r3stored.com as a certified biblical counselor and editor. She has three children, including twin sons—a Navy Officer/podiatric surgeon, and a nanosatellite engineer in Colorado. Her daughter is a culinary artist living in Arizona. Sam also has the seven most adorable grandchildren on the planet.Back to Staff
