Paula was born in El
Paso, Texas, and raised in Lubbock, Texas, until the
age of 17. Paula comes from a cattle ranching
family. Brought up knowing the cowboy
lifestyle, Paula knows the heart of the Western
culture. She understands simple, honest, and
the importance of your word. She was given up as a child, and adopted
into a family where the father grew to resent her.
Her adopted father was an atheist and very abusive.
She was made to feel unwanted and unloved by her
father. After leaving at the age of 16, Paula
found herself in a downward spiral. She tried
to take her life three times. Do to the rejection
and abuse from her father she turned to drugs
and alcohol to make the pain go away. This lasted for 13 years of her life.
All this time, she was trying to fill the void in
her life and make the pain stop.
Then one day on the outskirts of Amarillo, Texas, she
found a "Cowboy Church." Paula didnít realize that
this would change her life forever. Going into
that Cowboy Church, she was not judged and looked
down on; she was received with love and kindness,
something that Paula had never felt before. In
1999, she married a cowboy from Amarillo. Pastor Toby
Abbott helped her get back on the right track and begin
a work for Jesus.
Paula now serves as an
Evangelist/Pastor to people of all walks of life. She
travels throughout the United States bringing a message
of hope to the hurting. She has connected with many
people about difficult subjects including drug and
alcohol addiction, personal rejection, rape, suicide
attempts, physical and emotional abuse, and the dangers
of approval addiction. Paula is passionate
about teaching the true Word of God and how the Holy
Spirit is here to empower each of us, so that we can
walk in the fullest of Godís call.
