Two Worlds Update

Transitioning from One World to Another

The Class of 2022 Global Awakening Theological Seminary

It was a day like no other. Seeing friends in person I’d only seen online before and giving them a hug.

If you’re a friend on Facebook, you know I had an incredible day last Thursday. I traveled to Virginia with my husband and another seminary friend — and we officially graduated with my Master of Divinity, Ministry Concentration from Global Awakening Theological Seminary (GATS).

I felt God’s presence so strong on me, that I both laughed and cried. The emotions were so strong. The joy I felt. The incredible goodness and kindness of God on me through the day, and during the ceremony, where Dr. Randy Clark and Dr. Tom Jones from GATS and Dr. Sam Matthews from Family of Faith University, (the brick-and-mortar university GATS is affiliated with, prayed for each of the 17 graduates (although only 15 of us were in attendance).

I feel I have left one world behind in the dust, so to speak; and in a way, I have. I feel close to that “sweet spot” my pastor talks about, but I’m still not certain where exactly that is. I have some clues, but at my age, I’m not looking for full-time, just activities. Not to fill my time, but to utilize it. To use my gifts and education for the benefit of others.

I’m older. I was the 2nd oldest student in the graduating class this year. My friend Sally is 2 years older than me. She is amazing, getting her degree at 70. I’m almost 68, but I’m just getting started. I feel that everything I have done was to get me where I am now.

For those of you who follow me because of writing, I’m writing again — probably not fiction though. I will attempt to self-publish my 3rd novel, Hannah’s Hope this year. It’s all ready, I just need the “time” and the “desire” to get it done. Thank you so much for your support and encouragement in the past.

Where I will go from here is still being formulated. I’m on an online deliverance ministry eam and facilitating a class on Global’s College of Ministry. Eventually, they want to have enough classes to offer a bachelor’s degree. Because I have Master Equipper certification with Global’s CHCP program, I facilitate a class. I loved all the classes in that program, so I am facilitating a class on praying for the sick, PH2. More information can be found at

I know there will be more. In fact, I’m preparing to launch my own online/in-person healing ministry of sorts. Some of you may have heard of it. Refreshing Streams. Because we are so scattered across the country, online is such a wonderful way to connect people, and bring healing and wholeness. If you are interested in helping with this, please let me know. I’m looking for people to be involved in different ways.

That’s it for now. Next week: The WHY of My Degree

  1. Donna, Hello, this is your distant cousin. We had the same great great grandfather. Samuel Clark Whitwam. I have a story that will be turning into a book at some point. Hannah’s Hope. Yes, amazing the Lord put that on tour heart. We have a children’s home in India named after our granddaughter Hannah and Elizabeth’s House after our Grandaughter Elizabeth. I would love to read your story.

  2. Yes, Hi Cheri. I remember you. Thank you for your interest in Hannah’s Hope. I will get that book out sometime this year, and this blog will post about it. 🙂 How wonderful you want to turn Samuel’s story into a book. If you need help with that – I’ll be happy to offer. I so enjoyed writing that short story about him and that Confederate Bible.


  3. So proud of you Donna! You’re always looking to be right in the middle of whatever God is doing in the earth!

The blog site of Rick Wade


Where it is a good thing to be an outcast.


We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in and comes out.
