Don’t miss this chance to get spirited. This is going to be an evening of CELEBRATION!
When a 200-pound glass partition fell on Donna Fado Ivery’s head, causing brain injury and disability, her life was changed forever … but Donna did not let that stop her.
Sleep, Pray, Heal shares her struggle through medical and church prejudice, and her journey to recovery. Most of all, Sleep, Pray, Heal is a warm, surprisingly humorous, and insightful personal memoir that can enlighten the mind and lighten the heart of any reader.
Donna Fado Ivery is a United Methodist clergywoman whose pastorate was interrupted by disabling injuries sustained in a 1994 restaurant accident. While brain injury impaired her ability to speak, stand, concentrate, and remember, Donna painted her prayers. With pain too deep for words, Donna relied on the Spirit to lead her. Today Donna is a dynamic speaker whose keynote addresses and workshops have taken her across the U.S.
Sleep, Pray, Heal is a modern sermon on faith — a beautifully articulated, joy-based sermon, full of ups and downs imbued with an uplifting sense of the miraculous.
