Hi, my name is Paula. I have served as a pastor for 20+ years and I have been so, very blessed, to say the least. In addition to preaching, leading worship and all that goes along with the ministry of the church, I've enjoyed some other pretty awesome things in my life, including: raising 3 amazing children, being grandma to 6, designing clergy stoles, owning and operating a retail shop in Houston, digitizing embroidery designs and publishing 12 books.

I am now retired from the pulpit and plan to spend more time doing all the things that have been on hold for a while, like spending more time with my kiddos and grands, sewing, knitting, embroidering and... well, just working on being the best I can be. One of the things I'm really excited about is having more time to learn about the benefits of combining the ancient tradition of anointing with my daily practice of stillness. I'm passionate about enhancing my own time with the Lord and guiding others in their faith journey, as well. 

Jesus came so that we can have Life and have it more abundantly. But what does that really mean? Eternal Life, yes... but Jesus was also concerned about the quality of this life. Think about all the different directions a person is pulled in every single day. What's a person to do? How can we add quality to life, especially these days? 

My counsel is to seek out a healthy balance in life: Mind, Body and Spirit,  
so that you/I/we will be better equipped to serve. 

That’s my goal for myself and for you. May your walk with the Lord, be strengthened and enriched 
through what you are able to take away from this workshop.
