We all live crazy, busy lives. So, did global corporate executive, Donna A. Heckler: big companies, big travel, big responsibilities had her constantly on the go, until she was forced into two significant “time-outs”, a freak leg injury quickly followed by stage 3 cancer. Facing 12 surgeries in 18 months, Donna had no choice but to sit, quietly, with God.

With a knack for story telling, Donna shares what she learned from her time-outs with God. Her story reminds us that in the midst of our “crazy-busy” lives, in the midst of our darkness, we need to take time for God. We need to be present to those around us. We need to allow our inner, God-given radiance to shine through. As we move forward into the future, we need to have the courage to not only take time for God, but also encourage those in our organizations to do the same.

Heckler is a global, strategic brand-marketing executive who has provided guidance for a variety of firms.  In her career, Ms. Heckler has worked for Energizer Batteries, Ingersoll Rand, Cardinal Health and Kimball International and others to lead marketing efforts both domestically and internationally.
