Donna had been married to Darko, her high school sweetheart, for 48 years until he went to be with the Lord in August of 2014. In July of 2019, she married Dalton West, who was a long time friend and also a widower since 2017. They live in Brantford/Paris, Ontario, during the summer months and Lakeland, Florida during the winters.
Donna has been active in numerous Canadian ministries such as the '100 Huntley Street' (Crossroads Christian Communications Television Program) and 'Glas Istine', which was a weekly production to the Slavic community since the 1980's. She has counselled for a number of years under Lorne Shepherd of Heart to Heart Ministries
Then in 2007 she earned an Associates Degree in Biblical Studies and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Christian Ministry. That training plus the wisdom, leading and guidance of the Holy Ghost make her a qualified and trained Christian Counsellor.
She is ordained and has credentials with the Canadian Assemblies of God and also the Association of Evangelical Gospel Assemblies in the United states.
For many years she was a weekly fill-in host for live call-in television programs, such as 'Nite-Lite' which was produced in Canada and also the 'You & Me -- America's Prayer Meeting' program, which is broadcast from Florida.
She has written her autobiography, 'Uphill Climb', which details the troubled life she had before becoming a born again Christian. She is a gifted writer and for a period of ten years wrote monthly articles for the city newspaper in Venice, Florida; spreading the Good News of God's endless love and faithfulness.
You are welcome to read 'Uphill Climb' and her articles, free of charge, on this website.
In 2013 she published two additional books, 'Climbing Higher - Unafraid' and 'Climbing Higher - Digging Deeper' which are a compendium of these articles, which are also posted on this website.
Donna has devoted her life to ministry and had been touring Canada and the United States as an evangelist since 1996, until her former husband became too ill to travel. She then continued to do mostly local speaking engagements and concentrated on counselling, hoping to reach the goals that God had set before her in helping as many people as possible.
Because Donna has victoriously passed through so many fiery trials in her life, her greatest desire is to now serve God with her new husband, Dalton, and together share their numerous testimonies of God's continual provision, goodness and healing power, together with God's wonderful message of hope and His divine favor which is poured out upon all those who serve and obey Him.
They are more than willing to be used in an End Time ministry to the Glory of God.
Donna wants people delivered from fear and set free from bondage. She is willing to be a Life Coach to those that are experiencing problems and difficulties in their personal lives, therefore, arrangements for 'over the telephone' counselling can be scheduled by contacting the ministry at MannaMoments@aol.com
