No Longer Defined By Trauma

“He needs us to start looking in the mirror of His Word instead of the mess of our lives.”

“I love reaching hurting Christian women”

Donna is one of my St. Louis Christian Products Expo (CPE) sisters.  Our divinely-ordained meeting wasn’t initiated because we were one of the few women of color at the event. Rather, we connected over mission – we serve the Lord by walking alongside women in their journey to healing.

Read her complete bio below, but let me just say, you are gonna love this interview! My favorite part was when Donna explained how the making of a tapestry is a divine symbol of what God does with the pain of our past.

Donna is no longer a survivor of childhood trauma, she is a “thriver” who wrote a book, The Tapestry of Trauma and ties practical application, her personal story,  with a biblical perspective of the healing journey. 


“Imagine a file cabinet, things happen to us…imagine you can put the file back in the slot and you are able to close the file drawer. With trauma, the file sticks out and no matter how much you try to close the drawer, it will not close.”
