Donna Richmond the creator of BulletinGold grew up on a farm near Cameron, West Virginia. She attended Ohio Valley College in Parkersburg, West Virginia; Abilene Christian University, Abilene Texas; and received a Bachelor's Degree in secondary education and English and a Master's Degree in Special Education from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas. She began the work of BulletinGold while working as church secretary for the Lincoln and Tunnell congregation in Santa Maria where she served for over 15 years.

Since that time, her heart has been torn by tragedy many times over. She lost her young husband and 22 month old child in a tragic accident in 1974 and she lost her second husband in 2001. In spite of her grief and personal tragedy she continued to edit this work while going back to school and changing to a full time job to help support her children Michael and Jeremy. Her persistent love for the church and her Lord has endeared her to many of her readers and friends all over the world. 

As BulletinGold entered it's fifth year it was also the year of new beginnings for Donna.  She sold her house and moved during the summer of 2005 to Texas where she and her son Jeremy began attending college together as students.

New Beginnings....

With the April 2005 edition of BulletinGold, Donna handed the work over to David Bragg and Ed Thomason. Ed had been Donna's webmaster for a number of years, helping her put the wonderful articles into the archives of this website. He suggested that David Bragg would make an excellent editor and David has come thru doing an excellent job.

David Bragg is a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University and preached for nearly 18 years at the Cape Girardeau MO congregation as their full time minister. David and his wife Ann have two children. David retired in 2004 from his responsibilities as a full time minister and now works and worships with the Northwest Church of Christ in Greensboro, NC. David has MS and is limited in his ability to be as mobile as he would like to be, but navigates the key board of his computer and is doing an excellent job at editing BulletinGold. He writes many of the articles and offers his wisdom and insight to the task. Your encouragement means very much to David as he continues to find ways that he can serve the Lord in His kingdom.

Friends of BulletinGold are blessed to have David as the editor.

Ed Thomason, also a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University continues to work behind the scenes as co-editor with David (but in a limited capacity). He is still webmaster of this site.  Ed served for over 20 years as the local minister for the New Madrid Church of Christ where he and his wife Linda continue to worship. They have 2 daughters and 3 grandchildren.


BulletinGold has tried to maintain a good reputation as an outstanding site with very conscientious editors who do their best to screen the articles printed. However, we do not necessarily endorse the doctrinal soundness of every site that we have linked you to. As webmasters and editors we ask that you remember to follow the admonition of the apostle Paul:

"Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  -- 2 Timothy 2:15
