About Welcome Heart
Hello! Did you get the invitation?
I’ve seen what God can do with a simple invitation:
“Would you like to come over? Nothing fancy. Bring the kids. Please come. You’re welcome here.”
And God will do the rest. Join me in accepting God’s invitation to know Him better and deeper, and passing it on–Him on–through your heart and home. It’s not About me (or you) – it’s about His Welcome Heart.
About Sue Moore Donaldson
Christian Women’s Speaker, Bible Teacher, Workshop Leader
As a Retreat Speaker, Bible teacher, or workshop leader, Sue loves sharing who God is with whoever comes her way. For her, intentional hospitality for the sake of Jesus is a joy and a privilege, and she knows it can be learned! Sue has a deep desire to encourage others to find the reality and joy of knowing God through his Word –and that can happen at any kitchen table or back porch.
Sue and her husband Mark reside in San Luis Obispo, California with their three daughters, Bonnie Sue, Bethany and their “surprise” treat at almost 44, Mary Grace.
They fellowship at Grace Church where Sue teaches women’s Bible Studies, coordinates Central Coast outreach events and speaks at Women’s Retreats.
Sue was raised in Southern California by two wonderful Christian parents. She graduated from Los Angeles Baptist College (now The Master’s College) with a B.A. in Literature and earned a Masters of Arts in Human Resource Development from Azusa Pacific College.
A self-confessed “late-bloomer,” Sue led a full single life as a high school teacher and as a missionary with Wycliffe Bible Translators, including two years in Brazil and six months in Papua New Guinea. God used these experiences to develop her love for Him and for people who needed to know Him personally.
From the “jungle” of a high school classroom to the Amazon, one would hope to gather enough experience for being a wife and mom. But Sue would be quick to admit that nothing quite prepares one for the challenges and exhaustion, joys and tears that come with marriage and family.
Sue loves to fill her home and kitchen with friends or strangers for the sake of Jesus. He invited first. We get to extend the invitation.
About Sue’s family
Sue married Mark Donaldson at the ripe old age of 35 – a late bloomer, but glad to have found the Man-in-Plaid. Mark’s an Internist by day and a Mr. Fix-it/Home Remoldeler by night and weekends. (Remodeling for 10 years and still married. A good sign.)
They have three beautiful girls that keep them on their knees and at the bank…
