Meet Donna

Hi, I’m Donna! I’m thrilled you’re here. Let’s get to know each other: I’ll go first.

My spiritual journey began at the tender age of five when a Sunday School teacher introduced me to the idea of inviting Jesus into my heart. These early experiences paved the way for a strong foundation in faith, but doubts and questions eventually crept in. As it turns out, my questions turned out to be a blessing—they propelled me to seek answers and solidify my own convictions. As a result, I’m as energized by sharing God’s truth with a room full of seekers as I am a room full of seasoned believers.

I’m passionate about equipping all women to intimately know, love, and follow God in their real, everyday lives. I want to follow God this way myself!

I attended UCLA where I met my husband, JP. Ministry and three kids followed. In 2005 we took a huge, wildly scary leap of faith and planted Crossline Church in Laguna Hills, CA.  Along the way, I wrote three books and several Bible studies. As my family grew, so did my travels, connecting with women just like you.

Behind the scenes, though, I’m a mom to three incredible (and super fun!) adult kids. And now, I also proudly wear the title of “Gigi” as our family expands. I love to read and travel and I’m a sucker for a really cute pair of shoes. At home, you might find me sipping a good cup of coffee or working out at the gym (yes, I’m one of those people). You might even catch me talking with one of my kids, who’s likely perched on my kitchen counter just to chat.

So, that’s a glimpse into my world. But here’s the magic—I want our stories to intertwine. I envision this space as a wellspring of encouragement, where you discover the wisdom you need for the life you want—and more important—the life God wants for you.
