Why should you come to the
Writing from a Bleeding Heart Conference?

Do you feel called to write your testimony of healing, but your emotions muddle your words, or have you frozen at the keyboard? Are you an experienced writer struggling or feeling overwhelmed trying write your personal story? You don’t have to stay stuck.

In this conference, you’ll walk through a process that helps you birth your hidden testimony of healing. You’ll be equipped to share any area of brokenness, abuse, or addiction.

Then, share them with the world through a Bloom in the Dark: True Stories from a Bleeding Heart volume while training participants in the skills needed to expand the reach of these testimonies.

Paula Mosher Wallace
Born in the jungles of Peru to a missionary family, Paula experienced the front lines of spiritual warfare in the form of abuse from the age of 2. The abuse cycles finally ended when God brought Paula through a healing journey – through Christian counselors, ministries, and recovery programs. Her book, Bloom In The Dark, inspired the 501(c)3 charity which shares testimonies to raise awareness and let victims know they are not alone and there is hope. Paula is a life coach and cohosts the global Christian talk show, Bloom Today.

Sue Duffield

talks candidly about her popular book on faith and outrageous humor, Suebiquitous: (A Humorous Travelog of an Unfiltered Saint), “It’s an all over the place stage-to-page journey only God could orchestrate. It’s a hilarious adventure that will have you laughing, crying and experiencing the supernatural.”
Sue’s forty-two year ministry is going just as strong today, bringing her faith-filled music, humor and spirit-led messages to a whole new generation of women. This Jersey girl transplant lives in Hendersonville Tennessee, rides a Harley, is an avid social media junkie and is foremost an advocate for abused women and children worldwide. Her husband, Jeff, an accomplished musician and pianist, produces and arranges for many inspirational music artists. Her love for Jesus is absolutely contagious.

Ginny Priz

To help other women find this freedom, Ginny became a certified Christian life coach, speaker, and author of Ditch The Drama. She also anchors Bloom Today, a Christian talk show broadcast in 150 countries. She loves working with individual clients toward freedom!

The Model for the Conference
30 True Stories of Hope & Healing:

“Just reading a couple of the stories made me realize that I was a victim, too. I’ve pushed it down and refused to think about it my whole life. Now, I realize that I’d like to change that and become an Ex-Victim, too.” V.Q.

“I am proud of you, Paula Mosher Wallace! Your writing is going to help so many and with God’s help…they will hurt no more. I’m proud to say I’m an Ex-Victim, too and my hope it for many more to find that joy.” K. G.

“This is a must read book. I have read it several times already. Every time I read it, I take away a different understanding. God has blessed me with reading it and He will bless you.” A. S.

Sharing our stories helps us to…

– Find new purpose

Put our story into perspective

– Understand God’s hand in our life

– Experience the peace of accepting the past

Why Write Your Story?

Sharing your story is an important part of healing

Eventually, we become strong enough to look honestly at our broken pasts and share our healing journey in the form of a written story. It is only when we are comfortable remembering and sharing our full journey from brokenness to healing that we have truly healed from and accepted our past wounds. That is when God can truly start to use our journey for His glory.

Once this healing has taken place, we are able to claim our status as an “Ex-Victim.”
