❤️The Naomi Chronicles ❤️ in ❤️ Paperback ❤️in time for ❤️ Christmas Gifting ❤️

Now in Paperback!
️ For Christmas Gift & Enjoy Love

5Stars for the Naomi Chronicles! “Written with love, bathed in Scripture, this heartbreaking, inspiring, and spiritually riveting read left me speechless, breathless and profoundly altered in my beliefs about God's love."

5Stars! There Really Was NO OTHER CHOICE! “When Naomi, 15, ran away from
home and fled to America in 1952, she had NO OTHER CHOICE! Her Jewish ancestry was written on her face and she lived in Spain where Jews were imprisoned, tortured, and killed. She wanted to save her family from that fate. She hoped that when she reached America, her uncle would help her and then send for the rest of her family. But when she landed on Ellis Island, she was without a sponsor and would be deported. Enter Tia who handcuffed the girl and took her home with her. Tia told Naomi that if she worked for her until age 20, she would be given her freedom, $500, and papers to allow her to stay in the U.S. Naomi agreed. She had NO OTHER CHOICE!
She kept her Jewish roots hidden in Spanish Harlem. If her secret was revealed, she would be ousted. She had NO OTHER CHOICE!   
The bright promised-filled year of her 20th birthday finally arrived. Just as Naomi prepared to leave, Tia suffered a stroke and needed constant care. Naomi’s faith had written in her heart one law above all others: she must be a blessing. She stayed to help Tia. She had NO OTHER CHOICE!
Tia trained Naomi to take over the job of helping young girls who arrived in the U.S. without sponsors. She died before Naomi’s training was completed. Naomi never planned to marry; she was married to her work. Then she met Chaz and fell in love. They married. She had NO OTHER CHOICE!
But a scheming young girl Naomi attempted to help wanted more than American citizenship. She wanted Chaz. Naomi did the only thing she could…she had NO OTHER CHOICE!
“’NO OTHER CHOICE’ Choice is well written with strong, believable characters and highlights an era of little known and understood history. The Spanish Inquisition began and remained in effect until 1992. Jews were forced to leave Spain before March 31, 1992, or become a Catholic convert. Jews learned to hide who their identity to survive. Like Naomi, they had NO OTHER CHOICE!" Author, Stephanie Parker McKean https://goo.gl/prRqfc

5Stars for CHOOSING to BE! “Will the love Chaz & Naomi long for ever be theirs
This unfortunate couple is in God’s hands and without HIS help nothing can mend their depravity. Bitterness has taken up residence between this couple.; their souls are filled with yearning, deceit, craving, and yet a thirst for one another. Make sure you get this book and read it to find out how a bride flees as an alternative of confronting the consequences of her exposed mysteries.

A story crafted from biblical principles, ‘Choosing to Be” is a tale with purpose, to guild its reader to knowing Jesus Christ as their savior, or to bless those who already have a relationship with HIM. This is the 2nd book I’ve read of the very talented author ‘Paula Rose Michelson’ the 1st was ‘No Other Choice’. I’ve found both books very inspirational and well written. They are a breath of fresh air that will take you away, even for a short while, from the whirlwind and grind of daily life. Author - Victoria Simcox  https://goo.gl/8tcP5Y


5Stars for BEGINNING ANEW!” What a wonderful book by the talented Paula Rose
Michelson. She gives great depth to all the characters in this well-written poetic story that draws the reader in. After a painful separation, Naomi and Chaz both set their minds to starting over and 'begin anew' in their yet-to-be consummated marriage. With a faithful God, and being blessed with the love they have for each other - as many secrets unfold, the two must now learn to respect, and be honest with one another as they grow in love.
     Some of my favorite lines from the story:
     "When hearts beat as one like yours and mine, in time we come to understand each other's secret yearnings."
     "And what is my secret yearning?"

     "That we be happy--"
I highly recommended! Get your copy today, you'll be glad you did--it's an emotional story that many readers of all ages will be able to relate to; it will inspire you, educate you and keep you turning pages until the very end-- waiting for the next book to come out by this amazing writer, Ms. Michelson.” Author - J L. Mitchell https://goo.gl/xS8PwB

#Stars! A Big Thumbs Up for “ROPED” is an Amazing Read!

Roped by [Gates, DiAne]
On April 20, 2016, I hosted talented author DiAne Gates on my blog where she answered my questions and at my request shared a review for her fiction "Roped". The fact that I'd spent a great summer riding and taking care of the horse I was given named Apricot made her story one I knew I wanted to read. But time, my own writing and the busyness of life caused me to push that thought aside until DiAne offered to gift me her book when she discovered that I'd been sick for many months.

As I imaged from the opening sentence to the last one I was in cowgirl heaven. I know that sounds odd because I'm a city gal - acrylic nails and all - but even if you've never been in the saddle, 'Roped' will put a lariat around your heart and you’ll be tethed to Crissy Crosby who while chasing her dream to continue her parents’ rodeo legacy discovers that with God all things even the taming of her... Since I don't want to spoil the story, you'll have to read this emotionally charged story for yourself to find out what happens! And I strongly suggest that you give yourself this pleasure now!  https://goo.gl/RnjeKL

What Now?
     As they entered the building and turned down a dark corridor all Naomi could think was, now what will I do? The man pointed to a chair in a stark office. Steeling her resolve, she entered, sat down, and clutched the old, brown, leather suitcase to her chest. Seeing an official take a man into a room, she heard his interview begin. The door shut. Her mind raced, now what…what now, demanding an answer. She closed her eyes, and tried to think of one but there were none. No answers for immigration, and she had known there would be none even before she ran away from home in the middle of the night without a goodbye or a note explaining. Aware that running away from the reality of being a Jew in a country that allowed only those of one faith, and that one not hers, to live there, she had planned to find her uncle once she was allowed into America and help him bring their family here. Tears formed. She blinked them back, certain that if she cried, she would never be allowed to enter America.  
     Seeking oblivion she closed her eyes, hoping that when she opened them, she would find this was a horrid nightmare. Her mind brought her back to the moment fear had taken control of her life once more. She heard herself screaming, “Abuela Sosa, please do not be dead!” Her arm’s training took over because she heard her say, mi hija, think of something else. She tried, but as if things could not get any worse, the image of the old woman’s daughter-in-law packing her meager belongings into her suitcase flashed before her, and she heard herself demand, “You have no need of me anymore? I gave you a year of my life! Your esposo…your husband promised he would help me enter America and search for my uncle if I took care of his madre!” 
     Aware that the kindhearted old woman had treated her as if she were her very own kin, her sorrow increased. Yet knowing that her daughter-in-law had never visited the old woman during their voyage, and was only there now because it was necessary, Naomi was not surprised that this woman appeared unfazed by her charge’s death as she dispassionately closed the lid to the teenager’s suitcase and stared at her. Instead of demanding that the woman fetch a doctor, as Naomi had insisted an hour ago when she fetched the woman, all she could think of was, what do I do, now what do I do? Then she corrected herself, Naomi, it is not what do you do…it is what can I do to convince them to let me stay? She watched the woman eyeing her and wondered why is she in a hurry to rid herself of me before the doctor examines Abuela Sosa and declares her dead? Only then did she remember the woman’s secretive responses to an odd phone call that came moments after she followed Naomi into the stateroom. Maybe the family discovered the last name I gave was not…she felt a knot in her stomach, and knew her worst fears were going to come true. 
     Opening her eyes to see who was sitting beside her, Naomi was not surprised to find no one there, for fear, she had learned, does funny tricks to one’s mind. She closed her eyes again, certain that at one point there had been an official sitting next to her. At least that is what she… Her mind drifted back to the moment they had met, that is if being taken off the grand ship awaiting entry to New York harbor by an immigration official could be called a meeting. Reliving the moment that culminated when she sat where she was, Naomi knew it was all true. She was on Ellis Island and would be deported. She knew that because it being her first time sailing, she had listened to the other servants talking among themselves and learned many things…among them, the fact that no immigrants had disembarked at Ellis Island since the end of World War I unless… When she questioned those who spoke, she learned that immigration would remove a passenger from a ship because of a problem with their paperwork, though when she sat where the man pointed, she refused to believe her situation was as dire as it appeared. However, her heart told her otherwise.
     Trying to convince herself that her situation was not as bad as it seemed, she told herself, This is a mistake! My entry into America should have been easy. I took care of everything at the American Consulate before we left Spain. My documents, medical history… I filled each paper out very carefully!
     Agitated, she opened her eyes. She was alone. Aware of the stories of the chosen few allowed to enter the country; she tried to think of anything but the future she feared. Now what? Now what? Her mind repeated, demanding an immediate answer. Think of something else, her arm had often told her when she worried too much. And now just as she had when her mother told her what to do, Naomi nodded and whispered, “SΓ­, mi arm.” Scanning the room, she remembered reading that a fire had reduced the original buildings to cinders and nonflammable materials were used when the facility was rebuilt. It must have been an awful fire…still
     She heard the door to the office open, looked at the wall clock, and realized an hour had passed. An official took the man they had interviewed away. The door was left open at another man’s request. She leaned forward in her chair hoping to hear the men she assumed would decide her fate.
     “Sad that the grandmother died,” the large man said, his voice filled with what she prayed was sympathy for her plight.
     The smaller man nodded. “And just before the boat she was on was to enter the harbor.”
     “The girl has no sponsor. We must send her back to Spain.”
     “But she says she has no people,” replied a man she could not see.
     “Sad yes, very sad….but it’s not our—”  
     Naomi thought it odd when the small man stepped between the two who were speaking and blurted, “I tried to call the lady but was told she was out!”
     The large man waited while the man she had not seen left the office. Then he turned to his associate. “I told you not to speak about that!”
     “It doesn’t make any difference. I left a message, but there’s no one to help the girl.” He looked at his watch. “It’s already five thirty. The office should have closed half an hour ago.”  The large man sighed. “We can’t wait any longer. Ask her to come in.”

From "Why Johnny Can't Read" to 'See Paula Write' is FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5

Unable to learn until the third grade when it was discovered that she was very nearsighted, and at age 60 realizing she was profoundly dyslexic, author Paula Rose Michelson shares her journey from fear of writing to the blessing of writing for God. Many have benefited from this short, humorous self-help read where the author counsels and shows that recovery occurred when she believed in God’s ability to show the blessings hidden within her issues.


🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Were it not for all God had shown her, Paula, like many others faced with unseen handicaps, believes she would not have spoken of or written about her journey. She does so now with confidence that as Philippians 1:6 says, “…being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” amzn.to/SQetiN

5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “If you were expecting an article with details about dyslexia & how to 'learn to read anyway', you will be surprised. This isn't really so much about dyslexia as it is about how God can use us, 'no matter what'. Come sit down with Paula as she shares her heart and talks about how God spoke to her about his love for her and how He wanted to use her. I felt like I was sitting across a table having a conversation with a friend as she laughed at herself while she shared difficult times. Despite her 'difficulties' God still had a plan for her life. How humorous that God would take a gal with dyslexia and use her as an author? Ms. Michelson gives hope for people with ANY disability and shows that God can use all of us, no matter what we think may hold us back. I look forward to reading her novels that 'Naomi has shared with her'.  amzn.to/SQetiN

FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5 
 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “A Story of FAITH, Overcoming Disabilities & the authors Delight in the LORD! Tracking the miracles of possibility, grace, love, and the humor of a God who calls on dyslexics to write for Him told in a pleasant, chatty style reading this book was as if the author and I were having coffee, and eating cookies while she asked, “What were your parents like?” and went on to share how people dealt with dyslexia she was young. She also shared how as an adult, she’s learned to laugh at her troubles plus much more.” amzn.to/SQetiN

FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5 <3
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “This inspiring memoir by Paula Rose Michelson is both a meditation in the healing power of faith and a frank, honest account of how it feels to not be able to read easily. I sympathized with the author's very real struggle and was inspired by her memoir. Written in a jaunty, engaging style, this would make a perfect audio book that captures the spirit and times of living and growing up in 1950s America, a time when dyslexia was not as well understood as it is now.” amzn.to/SQetiN

FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “I bought this for my dyslexic daughter. We read it together. It is very short, but gives hope to those who get frustrated with learning disabilities. It helps my daughter to know there are others who have the same struggles she does and that she's not stupid. She can be anything she wants to be. Thanks, Paula, for sharing your story.” amzn.to/SQetiN

FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “I enjoyed the conversational tone of this memoir. Paula describes her struggles as a child with dyslexia before dyslexia was a recognized diagnosis. I enjoy the witty humor she weaves into her book and the encouraging way she challenges the reader to step out in faith. God used a little girl who struggled to read to later become an author and counselor for women with addictions. He can use you, too. I recommend this book, a quick read, to anyone who needs a little bit of encouragement.” amzn.to/SQetiN

FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5 
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 This is so close to my life story that its eerie. Growing up before dyslexia was an acknowledged learning handicap and people with that problem were sometimes considered beyond help, Paula not only learned by the grace of God, but had a 4.0 average when she put her natural desire for knowledge to good use. God works in mysterious ways to accomplish His goals and sometimes the water faucet doesn't know its a water faucet until He turns it on. Paula couldn't have known that God was using what others might consider a handicap to prepare her for the work He had planned for her.” amzn.to/SQetiN


FREEEEE Kindle through Saturday 11/5 
5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “From 'Why Johnny can't Read' to" See Paula Write" by Paula Rose Michelson is a shorty story of OVERCOMING that comes close to home. I, too am dyslexic, nearsighted and have used my dyslexia to an advantage like Paula. Paula goes a step further by finding out that her issue is a blessing, when God leads her to write for Him! amzn.to/SQetiN

About the Author 
Were it not for all God had shown her, Paula, like many others faced with unseen handicaps, believes she would not have spoken of or written about her journey. She does so now with confidence that as Philippians 1:6 says, “…being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

Excerpt from: PURPLE PITCH SEDUCTION OF AMERICA now #FREE

Free Kindle Download Until 10-1-16

Mr. Popeil’s Pitch and…
If you picked up this book, it might be because the title seduced you, or you like pitches. Perhaps you spend your days waiting for your ship to come in, watching the mail to see if your newfound faith in government-subsidized programs was well-founded, or you watch the abysmal reality that is created when people stop becoming the masters of their fate for the promises made by those who will be in office for a short time to store up theirs, and leave you in the lurch.   

Government, like that most unlikely of promoters, tickled your fancy, but now you may be bored and having sampled your fill of everything that didn’t satisfy, you might have found yourself watching the government dog and pony show which seems to be on twenty-four-seven but never accomplishes what previous generations of elected officials did when many feared that death was a heaven or hell reality. Fear like that seems to be out of style, or has perhaps been supplanted by the fear that those reality stars that people admire may be out of their league. 

I grew up in a simpler time when a television pitch was a paid-for advertisement delivered late at night to those sleepless few who wanted to be entertained. Many who stayed up then will remember the Mr. Popeil pitch commercials, where for a modest price one could buy the new handy-dandy gadget Mr. Popeil had invented, and many did! No one expected those gadgets to last very long. Yet years after the inventor died, his Chop-O-Matic hand food processor was still going strong. In fact, so great was this one man’s ingenuity and pitch lingo that Mr. Popeil has become an American pop icon. Some may have thought he was a laugh riot, but this one man redefined the idea of ‘make it, promote it, and they’ll buy it!’ 
Taking a page from Mr. Popeil’s pitch success, and mixing in a little science fiction to entice us, our government has repackaged itself into a one size fits all perfect world where everyone gets taken care of the government’s way. 

Since I mentioned Sci-Fi you might think I’ve visited and am speaking about the other America depicted in one of the original episodes of the Star Trek TV shows. Although the possibility that two Americas could exist in some space-time continuum might be used by some to negate what I have written, I can assure you, that the United States of America I am writing about is the one that believed so strongly that God ‘shed His grace’ upon our country, that a unified Congress put forth a bill and on July 30, 1965 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed that bill which added the words ‘One Nation Under God’ to our nation’s Pledge of Allegiance. Today those very words are being demonized because the government wants us to trust and depend upon them. 

Never before in the history of our country have the very people who elected their representatives had so much to fear from those appointed to serve. Today we are caught on the horns of a dilemma. Not since Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address and the Civil War that tore our nation apart have ‘We, The People’ faced such perilous times. Yet there is not a cry to unite, instead our nation’s leaders debate, postpone, retreat and moan at every opportunity that the issues cannot be resolved. Since no resolution leads to stagnation, lethargy, and finally acceptance, I cannot condone the dog and pony show that robs us and future generations of the freedoms we were granted because courageous men took a stand. 

If you wonder who I have written this for, I am writing for myself, for those who long to be free, for those who see the last vestiges of what we used to be trampled asunder as we conform to someone else’s idea of a social norm. I write for those, like me, who have walked the winding road of life, observed and edited their thoughts, actions, responses, and reactions with the changing times and have ended up here. You may well ask where exactly where here is, and that is, I believe a very good question indeed. Suffice it to say, here is not the Fifties I lived in, when I discovered through what the common vernacular came to be called the Boob Tube, that neither the Beaver’s dad nor the Nelsons’ father went to work. When I watched these shows, which became for many like me the lens through which we would view life, every issue was neatly dealt with in thirty minutes, which is very unlike the Congress we have today. Getting back to the TV shows of yesteryear, I must mention that issues were dealt with in less than thirty minutes because sponsors needed time to sell products like cereals that were purported to float. However, if we had tested the claims of the advertisers, and watched to see if the cereal would float, we might have noticed that given enough time they sank to the bottom and became the icky gooey mess we thought they would. Sadly, today the same litmus test applied to the Affordable Care Act would show that like those ill-fated cereal, there is nothing affordable in that bill. If it were, then the government would have made this Supreme Court Mandated Law the law for everyone including Congress and unions. 

If we had applied that litmus test to other pitches, we most likely would have not bought a law mandated by the Supreme Court because that is not one of their functions. Furthermore, a law that was passed before it was read and debated by both houses would have, if sent to a different group of sitting Supreme Court Judges, been sent back to Congress, since this country was born from the rallying cry, ‘No taxation without representation!’   

Today Andy Warhol’s 1968 claim; ‘In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes’, has more people seeking recognition at any cost and fewer interested in what ‘We the People’ have lost than ever before. Beware, for having bought into the idea that the government can solve all ills, we may have thrown away what matters most by borrowing against a legacy we believe we can never lose: like the family farm, generations owned now auctioned off, so we could have whatever is touted as necessary, and later discover it is anything but. Thus begins the downward spiral of seeking a sort of notoriety that previous to the 1960’s was to be avoided at all cost. 

Of course all of this is the history that no one ever talks or writes about, so why now? Good question! And the answer is, why not now? For right now, we are living in a world of pitches and smokescreens where every aberrant behavior is viewed as normal. And normal behavior, the classic idea of the norm, that we were all taught to admire, emulate, and seek after, and which many worked toward for eons, seems to have left the building as surely as Elvis did. In fact, given the tenor of these times, it might be apt to observe that the norm has left our political arena, politicians, the press, our entertainers, though some of their behavior drew glances way before now, and maybe even our country.

Now you might be thinking this doesn’t matter to me! But it does! The world you live in matters as much to you as the security of the Fifties matters to me. I grew up with that feeling. It wasn’t until I received a radio alarm clock the year I turned twelve that I heard about the Bay of Pigs and a guy named Batista. I rooted for a man named Castro who would make it all better. In the infancy of my awareness of the world outside, I learned that there are movements and individuals throughout the world who have a slick pitch. If you don’t want to get suckered in, stay tuned!  http://amzn.to/WfYxaD

5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 “While earning a Master’s of Divinity Degree in Pastoral Counseling I was introduced to the idea that the purpose of Christian counseling was to aid individuals to get unstuck in their life. Paula put into simple words a process that can unstick those who are bogged down in the mire of their anger. On a personal note, I recommend this book to all those who trained themselves to hide their anger inside. From childhood I dealt with the effects of anger within. Although written and promoted to aid ladies to deal with anger, I found in Paula’s words a greater understanding of my own path to freedom in Christ.” — Rev Jimmy A. Garland: Pastor, Counselor, Author of ‘Ark of Rest’, and ‘Berserker Healed’. http://amzn.to/1gljnYV

Please welcome, Texan & author of "ROPED", DiANE Gates!

What Readers Are Saying the Novel Roped
“5Stars! Crying by the end of the first chapter, I was cheering by the last! I really enjoyed this book! The author had an almost magical way of making her characters, and the Texas rodeo culture, come to life. This book emphasized the importance of forgiveness, of keeping your temper, and of trusting in God. I plan on reading this story many more times in the future, and I would highly recommend it for teens and adults alike. I'm eagerly looking forward to the sequel!”

“5 Stars! Hard to put the book down, author, DiAne Gates has written a story that makes you feel you are actually there! There were times I found myself holding my breath, waiting for the outcome of what was happening at the moment. I felt like I got to know each of the characters of the story and it was written in such a way I could literally "see" what was going on and felt what each character of the story was feeling at that moment. The story line moves quickly and with each chapter you will find yourself drawn into the life of this young girl, feeling what she feels and wanting her to win!! How refreshing to see a story that has as its center such strong family ties, lessons in integrity and bonds that cannot be broken regardless of what life may throw in your path. I highly recommend this book, not only for young people but for adults as well. There are lessons for all of us to learn regardless of age.” Marie

My Interview with Author, DiANE Gates
Why do you write? I entered an essay contest when I was fifteen and won. The title was “The Basis of a Great Nation is a Christian Home”. I’ve been writing since that time about this same topic. I can’t not write. Christian homes are the backbone of America.

How did God direct you? My children were young when I launched into the art market via the means of local art shows. Watching fellow artists go home penniless, I told God we needed extra family income. And He laid on my heart to create color books for children. Even if paintings didn’t sell, the color books did. Then God spoke to my heart about parents not being able to teach what they don’t know, and my four book family devotional series, based on the color book characters, “The Master’s Plan”, came to life. We lost a twenty-eight-year-old daughter fifteen years ago and God not only directed me, He carried me through those difficult years of grief. Then led me to lead a GriefShare support group, where He has directed me for thirteen years.

What is your self-publishing or regular publishing experience? In 2014 I signed my first book contract with Prism Book Group to publish my YA Novel, “Roped”, and am in the process of completing the next book in this series, “Twisted”.

Where do you write? Anywhere the words come. On scrap paper, my computer, my laptop. In the backyard swing, waiting on doctors, in my chair alongside husband when he watches boring sports. When I signed a contract with Prism for “Roped” we took a spare bedroom and turned it into my office. My neighbor designed and built a twelve-foot desk across one end of the room. That desk top holds everything a gal needs to create—family photos, printer, computer, sewing machine, my paints and brushes, and my old computer—just in case.

Do you have any words of wisdom to pass along? “Roped” was my first novel. I sent it to two publishing houses and received two rejections, then threw it in a drawer—for years. After God called our daughter home, He led me to ACW and within thirty minutes of walking in the door found out why my manuscripts weren’t accepted. They screamed amateur. I joined North Texas Christian Writers and began the arduous word crafting process. Several years and three first place finishes later, in their Children’s Division, I signed with Prism. Moral of the stories? NEVER, NEVER, NEVER GIVE UP! Join a local writing group and educate yourself. Find folks who are bent on success and write and edit with them for as long as it takes. You will achieve your dream if you write within God’s will and for His glory, not your own.

About Author, DiANE Gates

Her freelance artist, photographic work for the East Texas Rodeo Association magazine gave birth to her western rodeo adventure series ROPED which Prism Book Group in August of 2015.

DiANE leads an adult edit group, The LifeSavers, for North Texas Christian Writers. And DiAne is a facilitator for GriefShare, an international support ministry for those who’ve lost loved ones.

Wife, mother, and Mimi, whose passion is to share those hard life lessons God allows. Lessons she hopes will leap from the page into your heart.

About Author, Paula Rose Michelson
An avid reader of inspiring fictions where the heroine was one for her families' sake, amazing women, and unique faith challenges are found within author, Paula Rose Michelson's fictions. A writer from an early age, when asked about the idea for The Naomi Chronicles, Paula says, "I cannot take all the credit for Naomi started telling me her story, and together we penned the six fictions."

When not involved in writing, speaking or helping other writers, Paula Rose Michelson pursues other passions while supporting her husband Ron who is a Lutheran Pastor and Chosen People Ministries field missionary. At one point she and her spouse worked for the mission. However, her desire to write for the Lord full time lead her to leave that work so she could devote herself to this work.

This mother of two married daughters and grandmother of seven has been known to weave such wonderful tails that sometimes listeners lose track of the time. At her core, both family and her ever increasing reader family matter to Paula, so while writing to entertain, she hopes to impart a blessing to those who read her fictions and nonfiction's.

Some who first knew this author as the founder, head, and facilitator of LAMB Ministries, have mentioned that a few of those teachings are found within her books. Paula knows this to be true for her desire to faithfully depict Gods love, compassion, and forgiveness while showing her readers The Jewish Messiah of Israel and the world parallel her desire to see those precious wounded ones restored to wholeness, so within each of her books, she includes a few of her biblically based teachings so others can overcome and feel good about themselves.
