The Donna Lou radio show has been lauded as

"... A bold and honest Christian 'Dear Abby column for radio' that discusses your most challenging faith questions!"


A Place of Grace Ministry provides Bibles for inmates. God's word is our final authority and we want to share the Gospel with everyone around the world including those in prison. Our ministry helps inmates find their identity in Christ by renewing their minds with the Word of God. By giving them a bible it will allow Jesus to transform their life into what God has called them to do whether in prison or when released.


You can help with our ministry by partnering with us to make sure every inmate learns about the grace of Jesus!

Help me help deserving families in our community with a contribution to the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Child Day Care Center, the beneficiary of the "Dancing With the Stars of the "Burg" fundraiser for which I have the privilege of dancing this year!  Each of the 7 dance teams is asked to raise at least $15,000 to keep the 501(C)3, United Way-supported Day Care Center on track to break ground in two years on their new 3-story building downtown, serving hard-working, low-income families with sliding scale, curriculum-based child care.  I am particularly anxious to help them reach that milestone because at that point they will begin accepting infants (at present care begins at age 2), offering real choices to parents in our community.  And rather than beginning school "behind the eight-ball," the Center's children begin school ahead of the learning curve, proving time and again to break troubling generational cycles.  Moreover, the Center's reputation for excellence draws a waiting list of privileged families paying full scale, thus bringing the sub-cultures together and breaking barriers to unity!

Come and cheer on the 7 dance teams November 11, 2018, at the "Dancing With the Stars of the 'Burg" gala event at the JMU Festival and Conference Center with their usual highly-publicized, sell-out crowd of over 400.  I would be honored to have your support with a gift of any amount for this mission I have grown so very committed to, the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Child Day Care Center!

Thank you again for any help you can offer me as I work to raise life-changing and life-saving dollars - while dancing a mean Paso Doble with my dance partner, Chuck Ralston!

Grace and gratitude,
