Bonnie Floyd is an author, Bible teacher, and inspirational speaker. Real, relatable, and refreshing are words often used to describe Bonnie’s contagious zeal for the Lord and her authentic love for people.
Bonnie has a deep love and respect for God’s Word that is born out of her service as a teacher, group leader and minister of the Gospel for more than twenty-three years. Her powerful and dynamic messages bring the Scriptures alive to audiences of all ages and gender, and offer useful, practical ways to apply them to everyday living. Her personality comes through in every message, she will have you laughing out loud one minute and reaching for your Kleenex the next!
In the early hours of February 1, 1994, Bonnie received a phone call that would change the course of her life. Her parents, who were sailing in the West Indies, were brutally murdered along with two other passengers while moored off the island of Barbuda. The next two years would test and grow Bonnie’s faith in ways she never imagined. During the five-week trial, Bonnie’s outspoken Christian faith touched many key players in the tragic story—the team from Scotland Yard, the prosecuting attorneys, the local law enforcement, and the grieving families of the other victims. Bonnie shocked everyone when she insisted on going to the prison and meeting one of the men responsible for her parents’ death.
Shortly after she returned from Antigua, Bonnie was asked to share her amazing experience at a women’s luncheon. This event launched a full-time speaking ministry that has brought thousands to believe in Christ and even more to learn how it is possible to forgive even the seemingly impossible. Urged on by her husband and many others who have been inspired by her story, Bonnie put this incredible true-life-tale to paper. Bound to a Promise beautifully communicates her story of love, murder and redemption.
In January 2016 God called Bonnie to return to the islands of Antigua & Barbuda, while there God planted a seed in her heart to set up a presence on Barbuda; a foundation in her parents’ name to work with the people of Barbuda through discipleship and teaching vocational skills. “Our prayer and purpose is to prevent what happened to my parents from ever happening again.”
BFM Mission Teams will minister to the people of Barbuda through Bible Studies, Youth events and sports and medicine clinics on how to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Our goal is for the youth and all people of Barbuda to capture their own vision from God and realize their full potential and purpose in life.
Bonnie lives with her husband, Donnie in Celina, a small country town near Dallas, Texas.
