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.
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
Friends of BulletinGold are blessed to have David as

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
