Meet the Speaker:

Donna Joy Paulsen Taylor lives in Johnson City, Tennessee with her new husband Paul and his daughter Ashlynn. She works at East Tennessee State University as a Lecturer for the Department of Communication and Performance. In addition to teaching, she also serves as the Assistant Director for the ETSU Speech and Debate Team. After losing her fertility at the age of thirty-three, Donna began researching other women’s experiences with infertility. In her master’s thesis, she explores how traditional Christian beliefs and values can unintentionally hurt women who struggle to bear children. Donna’s life experiences have led her to pursue a dual ministry to women in the church, offering hope to the hurting and guidance to those who want to love them well. Her ultimate desire is to serve women by building gospel-centered bridges between those with children and those without.
