Donna Carter has a unique ability to synthesize life experience into digestible life lessons. She is sought after as a Christian women speaker internationally because of her passion, humor and the light-bulb moments she triggers for people seeking help on their spiritual journeys. Nothing excites her more than participating in the restoration of women’s hearts, and their relationships with God and others.
Her first book 10 Smart Things Women Can Do to Build a Better Life was released in the fall of 2007 and is now being distributed in five countries. The DVD life management course by the same name is an outreach tool that is working its way around the world, making appearances in Islamic countries, third world, and communist countries, and U.S. military bases. Her second book Friend Me; Turning Faces into Lasting Friendships, along with the accompanying DVDs and conversation guide, was released February 2013. You can purchase Friend Me here or purchase the e-book online with Chapters. Her most recent book, Kick the Boring Out of Your Life was released the summer of 2015.

Donna has traveled widely and is passionate about social justice; especially helping women and children achieve their full potential. Her recent adventures include connecting with the underground church in China, experiencing the catastrophic earthquake in Haiti, and linking Canadian women with young mothers living in abject poverty in El Salvador through Compassion International.
