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.
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.

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.”
