A Note From Donalyn:

I’ve been given a wonderful gift. That gift is the privilege to share my life with you. Many of you have sent me letters in appreciation of my books and artwork. Some of you have met me during a speaking engagement or book signing. Your kindness has been my greatest motivation. It is my desire that you will see in me a reflection of the love of Christ. I am humbled by His great love for all of us. In the end, what matters most is not what we possess, but what possesses our heart. In every book, every print or drawing that I do, I want there to be evidence that God owns my heart.
