"We rarely repeat speakers, but Paula is so gifted in explaining the Word of God, we have asked her to speak twice. The follow up evaluations have praised her knowledge of the Bible, her ability to communicate it and her ability to apply it to those in the group for whom she is speaking."

"I could listen to her speak all day long.
... She exudes comfort in front of the group, ... and that in turn allows the audience to open up to hear her words.

"... [We] felt confident that her words were spoken only after much prayer and reflection on the word of God. When she reads a passage from the Bible, it comes alive."
