Local Author Don Brown’s “Experiences of a Lifetime” Book Signings This Week

Author Donald J. Brown

After retirement as Vice President of Ben-Tex Pharmaceuticals in Houston, Don Brown and his wife Nora moved to Sulphur Springs in the early 1990’s. This move followed a lifetime of ministry and world travels and put them closer to their two children and grandchildren. Then in 2017, following the passing of his wife and 68-year prayer partner, Don decided to put their many interesting experiences into book form. His self-published work “Experiences of a Lifetime” was released in 2019 and will be offered locally this week in two book-signing events at Good News Christian Bookstore in Sulphur Springs.

“Experiences of a Lifetime” has 199 brief chapters, most only one page long. Each fascinating, well-written recollection offers a vignette of an enriching experience and a lesson learned. Readers will follow Don from his youthful years in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas as a minister’s son to earning money and life skills through farm and ranch work. His teen years included high school Varsity sports from which he earned three college scholarships as well as a ministerial scholarship. Later, broad opportunities to preach God’s word came as he and Nora followed God’s direction to new places. He credits God’s direction and protection in all his experiences, from his frequent hitchhiking across the 4-States region during college years, to witnessing a secret and sacred Ute “Sun Dance”, to a life-threatening encounter at the Great Pyramid when visiting the Holy Lands. Within the chapters, Don subtly uses each story as a faith-building teaching tool.

You can meet Donald Brown on Thursday May 16 and on Saturday May 18, 2019 at Good News Christian Bookstore inside the VF Outlet along I-30’s Industrial Drive East in Sulphur Springs. The two book signings will be held from 10 am til 2 pm, Don will gladly autograph the books purchased. He is a retired pastor, an active member of First Baptist Church in Sulphur Springs and Director of an Adult Department at the church. You can find out more at
