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 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 a certified biblical counselor and also serves other local and national organizations as editor, writer and support staff.
Doreen 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. She also has the seven most adorable grandchildren on the planet.Back to Staff
