Since 2005, she has immersed her life in the philosophy, principles, teachings and practices of Science of Mind (SOM). Ernest Holmes has taught us to be a teaching and practicing organization, and this is exactly what I have done since taking my first class in SOM. To this day, I strive to practice, inspire and teach the principles of this philosophy and religion, not only in my words, but also in my actions, through leading by example.

Rev Donna is dedicated to the principle of leadership by striving to gently guide others as we strive together to embody and demonstrate the power of the SOM teachings in daily life.
