Hey, I'm Paula. It's nice to meet you.
Thank you for visiting. I wanted to share something personal with you about myself and my book.
So I invited you to my corner to chat.
"The Modern Day Jabez" is me and it is you.
I've been the adopted child, teenager coping with the death of a parent, dating, getting pregnant then marrying someone who never loved me, becoming a parent, coping with the loss of another parent, failing in life, and learning.
I collected myself and cried until the pain made me numb. I'm human just like you with triggers from my past. In those moments I become this small child trapped in an adult's body that's yearning for love and acceptance. It is the strength of the Lord that pulls me through the difficult times. I admit I have been hurt but that hurt does not define me. Guess What?
It did not stop me either. It made me more determined and driven to prove that your name does not affect who you are. Obstacles are made to overcome. Hurdles are made to be overthrown.
I am a conqueror who can do both.
God took my shattered pieces and made them whole. I am redeemed.
