Biblical - Practical - Relatable - Bible Explainer
Rarely does a speaker relate as easily to seekers as with veterans of the faith, but somehow Donna Jones does. Described as “a pro on stage but with the warmth you’d expect from a close girlfriend,” Donna is “about as authentic and genuine as they come”. More than a Bible teacher, Donna is a self-described Bible explainer. A colorful storyteller who combines Biblical truth with real-life anecdotes, her messages not only help listeners understand God’s Word but, most importantly, grasp how to live it out in real life. Donna is funny, engaging, practical and real.

SEEK: A Meeting With God
What if your walk with God could go to new depths? What if you could finally understand how God’s truths can be applied in your family, in your work, in your neighborhood—in you? What if the way you think, the way you feel, and the way you act could be transformed?
If we’re honest, most of us have felt that God was far off, found the Bible difficult to comprehend, or sensed that the Christian life seems to work for other women, but not for us. God never intended for us to live this way! Based on Donna’s latest book, SEEK, this message will equip you to recognize God’s presence, and give you the tools you need to seek after God in the midst of everyday life.

When God Bends Down
The Psalmist wrote “Because God bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath” (Psalm 116). Prayer is the key to connecting with God and unleashing His power in our lives. And while most everyone prays, almost no one fully understands the mystery of prayer. Too often our lack of clarity about prayer leads to lack of connection to prayer. As a result, our spiritual lives remain stunted and stale—but they don’t have to stay that way!
