"As a survivor of divorce, single parenthood, and clinical depression, Bonnie’s story has graced the covers of Today’s Christian Woman and Virtue magazine."
As a survivor of divorce, single parenthood, and clinical depression, Bonnie’s story has graced the covers of “Today’s Christian Woman” and “Virtue” magazine. Her first three books allowed her the chance to speak hope to others from her first hand experience of God’s mercy to messy situations. Blessed Are the Desperate, God Loves Messy People and A Ladder Out of Depression openly reveal Bonnie’s journey from despair to hope. Her ongoing passion remains to say ‘do not give up’ to hopeless people of faith who may find themselves discouraged when life turns upside down.
As a multidimensional communicator, using interactive video, music and speaking, her testament of God’s faithfulness has taken her on various media tours including appearances on The 700 Club, 100 Huntley Street, TBN, Moody Broadcasting, and The James Robison Show.
As a sought after keynote speaker Bonnie blends music with her message and nothing brings her more joy than allowing her story to bring healing.
Bonnie lives with her ‘miracle’ Brent (a five time Grammy award winning, horse-loving, Renaissance husband) on their farm outside of Franklin Tennessee. Her children, Courtney and Graham continue to follow their dreams both in Tennessee and New York. One could say “Bonnie’s suitcase is never far from the door.”
