Welcome

Drs. Donna & David Lane

Hi, we’re Drs. Donna and David Lane, and we’ve spent our lives helping people, equipping clients, children, couples, families, and yes, even nations in crisis to tap into who God created them to be, understand how He has wired us as human beings, and discover that the Kingdom of God is within us – always.

We enjoy working and writing together. Our passion is to help others explore and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, and our work and our writings are geared toward that goal.

In addition to our roles as private practitioners and professors, we are award-winning multi-genre authors. Using our understanding of how the brain and heart connect and our knowledge of complex mental health issues, our writings use storytelling to help you tap into your own story to wrestle with today’s life challenges – – whether you are an adult trying to understand suffering, a child seeking to overcome your fears, or anyone who longs for a deeper understanding of how the presence of God is with us and within us.

Books

Our books range from light-hearted and engaging children’s stories with wonderful messages to profound explorations of deep theological concepts. They offer new perspectives, challenge in-depth self-examination, and encourage a fearless embrace of life’s joys and sorrows. We take you to other worlds and other times. We tackle difficult questions. We face genuine suffering, and we rejoice in God’s redemption. After you finish our books, we hope you find yourself enlivened and enriched, with a newfound desire to experience God to the fullest.

"If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were MADE FOR ANOTHER WORLD." — C. S. Lewis

The Doctors Lane

Meet The Team

“My passion-my true heart-is spiritual direction. I love walking alongside others as they grow closer to Jesus, helping them overcome the lies they’ve been told about God, about themselves, and about the purpose and meaning of life. My goal for those I work with is to experience the Kingdom of God within them. My purpose in my writing is to help usher the Kingdom of God into the world.”

“My passion is teaching. I’ve always been a teacher-it comes naturally to me. It’s extraordinarily fulfilling to watch students as they “get it” and open up their own passion for counseling and helping others. Being a child at heart informs my writing and teaching, because I’m open to the joy and wonder of everything around me. It is my desire to share this joy.”

Asked Questions

The questions our readers send us are all over the map—sort of like our writing! We’d love to hear from you and answer your questions.

David: I will hear odd things or see something interesting that will spark a kernel of an idea. A couple of them started with things my children said or did. Others have come out of conversations I was having with people that sparked an idea, looking at something from a different perspective. One idea, I was at a professional conference, and one of the speakers made me think of a significantly different perspective on something. It is an idea I’m currently working on.

Donna: Almost all of my ideas come to me during prayer. The rest of them wake me in the middle of the night with a picture or thought I know came from God in my sleep. For example, the entire Gold Stone story came to me overnight after praying about the need in Haiti before I went to bed. When I woke up, I simply wrote what came to me during the night.

Donna: I love a challenge. My writing started with presenting theological ideas. Then I had the idea of presenting those ideas through allegory. If allegory, why not fantasy? If fantasy, why not science fiction? If I can write in the future, why not the past? Someone once told me I could “never” write a novel in 1st person present tense, so guess what I set out to do? Now, it’s up to the readers to let me know if I succeeded, but I surely enjoyed the challenge. 

David: The answer for me is I’m interested in so many things. I’m eternally curious to a fault. For me, there’s just not enough time in a lifetime to get to it all.

David: I was called to it, as clearly as anything has ever been said to me. My undergraduate degree was in education, but I couldn’t find a job teaching when I graduated in December, so I answered an ad for a “youth worker.” When I went to the job interview, I got out of my car and literally heard a voice say, “This is where you are supposed to be and this is what you are supposed to be doing.” So, I am one of those blessed individuals who found his calling at 22 and have never looked back.

Donna: My plan was to go to medical school. My first semester freshman year, I was taking chemistry and calculus, so I signed up for a psychology class to be my “easy” course. Instead, I found it so fascinating, I changed majors, and I have loved everything about it since.

Donna: Without a doubt, C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien have been the biggest influences in my writing. Lewis wrote across genres, and all of his writings revealed the truth of Christ in some unique way. He challenged beliefs and confronted the big questions. Can you tell I want to be C. S. Lewis when I grow up? As you know, Tolkien and Lewis were great friends. Tolkien is so creative and so willing to stretch himself and do new and different things with his writing, and he, too, revealed God’s truth in unique ways.

David: My biggest influences have been my children. They inspire me.

Gold Stone
Cepmomga

Gold Stone is such a beautiful story for young and old alike about how our identity does not have to be defined by tragedies that have occured in our life. The eternal hope available to us transcends all pain.
Seeking Treasures
Jennie Denney
Read More
Using scripture, thought-provoking questions, prayer, and ideas for re-direction, this book takes you on a beautiful inward journey toward discovering the person God created you to be. Each chapter is intended to be read and taken in over the course of a week individually or with a group, creating space for the reader to think, ponder, pray, and meditate on the lesson. This book is easy to read, full of deep and wonderful truths, very well organized and thought out, and great for anyone looking for a deep and meaningful study.
Restored Christianity
Connie Delane Mitchell
Read More
Challenging, convicting, and life changing! The reader is challenged to know God and not just about Him. Jesus desires to be intimately involved in every aspect of our lives. Our false beliefs about ourselves and God hinder us from having true intimacy with Him. The authors use Paul's letters for their historical analysis to examine the Christian beliefs and theology of the early church. In doing so they reveal how far from 'true north' today's church has come. The in depth historical research and analysis is well done and similar to Lee Strobel's 'A Case For Christ.' As a graduate from a Christian university, I believe 'Restored Christianity' should be required reading for theology and seminary students alike.
Wilderness Meditations: 40 Devotions for Lent, Fasting, and Spiritual Growth
Chloe S. Flanagan
Read More
This is a beautiful and profound collection of daily reflections. Each day’s meditation offers wisdom and spiritual insight while still providing the space and stimulus for deeper thought. Following this devotional through Lent is a wonderful way to focus on the Savior and seek a closer relationship with Him. I definitely recommend it.
Strength in Adversity
Takashi Todoroki

Dr. Lanes’ gift of scriptural analysis and ability to break it down for the reader, and provide practical and generalizable applications to our lives has been such a gift for me. I share her books with everyone I can so they may benefit in their understanding and relationship with Jesus as I have. Thank you for sharing your gift with us
The Interview
Readersrus
Read More
The book gets straight to the heart of things. We're all broken, we all have choices, and the good and evil forces of the world present different paths. The interview was a disturbingly good reminder of what depths the deceiver will go to in order to sweep our interests and attention elsewhere. The ending was one that was a much-needed relief. Excellent work by the author!!!
Sky Light Rises: Whisperers Book TwoCepmomga
Read More
This book continues the story of the survivors and their battle against evil and quest to reunite the worlds. The story is complex but the truths are simple. The parallels with the Gospel and salvation are subtle yet draw your heart to such a place of love and understanding. The end literally took my breath away! Definitely a must read! Thankfully the third book is out so I did not have to wait to see what happened!
Sky Light Falls: Whisperers Book One
Susan Field
Read More
This was a great read (all three books) during a pandemic. The author, Dr. Lane, pulls the reader into a completely different world, redifining species and challenging the use of the English language. But, once you are in the story, you find that it is not a different world at all. Our world of good and evil; of persistence and failing; of love and self-love; of confidence and self-loathing are all present. It will "take you away" and at the same time bring you back to questions about your own values and your own loves. You can't read this without the other two in the "Whisperers" Series. Don't miss it.
This Hallowed Ground
Tabitha Bouldin
Read More
An absolutely unforgettable story of grit and determination in a war-torn land. This Hallowed Ground will take you on an epic journey reminiscent of Tolkein's tales with the vengeance and resolution of a story you won't be able to put down. Mac is a rare character who suffers through insurmountable odds time and again in search of the one place where he can be at peace. This take on Job's story will run you through the gamut of emotions all while cheering for Mac to keep pressing on. I don't often call a story gut-wrenching, but this one calls for it and it's in no way a bad thing. Donna Lane draws you into the time period with excellently crafted details and keeps you there.
