I highly recommend this speaker. Paula is an important speaker who holds the attention of the group from start to finish. Her delivery is professional, fun, transparent, relatable, and powerful. Paula captivates as she weaves sound in depth Bible teaching with her personal testimony. Through her struggles and ultimate victories she is able to touch every heart. Paula gives real solutions to some of life's most difficult problems. Her messages are memorable and life changing.
I have had Paula Friedrichsen speak at several events and she has never failed to connect deeply to her audience, delivering on current topics and applying them to the deeper context of successful living in Christ. Open the door for Paula and you will get so much more than a gifted speaker. She brings with her a genuine, vibrant love for God as well as a deep love for people. She is well spoken but her words are more than pretty... they will impact the hearers in profound ways. What else can I say "Five Stars"!!
Paula was first invited to our church by our women's director as the keynote speaker at our annual women's retreat. The testimonies from that retreat were life-changing for numerous women. We had her stay over to teach our Sunday morning service, which was the first time I had heard Paula, and her message was full of power, authenticity and real life stories that made a tremendous impact on myself as well as many in our church. Since that first encounter Paula has been with us many times and has become, what we like to call, a "Friend of the House". She is a dynamic teacher, hears from God, is an encourager and is full of the Spirit. I would highly recommend Paula.
Paula is one of the most articulate and relatable speakers I know. She is real, authentic, fun and to the point. Her messages bring true transformation with great application for a life changing experience.

STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
“Strength for the Journey” is a four-point seminar that focuses on imparting God’s strength for the days ahead. We live in a dark world–but for Christians this is our brightest day! It’s time for us to arise shine and impact the world around us with the profound and audacious love of God.
Meeting 1: Strength for the Journey; Using Your Gifts: This message is based upon John 4:31-35 (my food is to do the will of Him who sent me). We’re at our best when we’re being used by God!
Meeting 2: Strength for the Journey; Intimacy with God: True strength comes from spending time in God’s presence. Soaking up His love, telling Him your concerns, singing, praying, loving, listening… Strength comes as we behold our God and enjoy His presence.
Meeting 3: Strength for the Journey; Relationships: Nothing will siphon off the anointing of God on your life quicker then manipulative, controlling,or destructive relationships. Meeting 3 is broken into two parts:
Part 1: Resisting the Spirit of Manipulation & Control
Part 2: Nurture: The Key to Strong Relationships
Meeting 4: Strength for the Journey; Take Courage!: This message is built on Judges 5:21b “March on, my soul; be strong.” Courage will be a primary quality which defines an end-time believer in the days ahead. By using the Book of Joshua combined with the story of her healing from Lyme Disease, Paula illustrates that sometimes the greatest courage isn’t required when you’re in the midst of a trial, but just as you’re coming out!
A SEASON OF BREAKTHROUGH
“A Season of Breakthrough” is a four-point seminar based on Paula’s book by the same title. It is designed to help attendees recognize their sphere of authority and take a stand against the “freedom stealers” in their lives. This seminar will help believers learn to not only experience supernatural breakthrough in their lives, but also discover how to walk in sustained breakthrough and exponential freedom! By using the testimony of her healing from migraine headaches and pain medication dependency, Paula teaches four important strategies to living a life of Breakthrough:
Meeting 1: The Strategy of Risky Obedience
Meeting 2: The Strategy of Tenacious Faith
Meeting 3: The Strategy of Destiny Awareness
Meeting 4: The Strategy of Transforming Love
THE JOY SEMINAR
Session 1: Bloom Where You are Planted: Women will be taught to thrive (by the grace of God) in their present day circumstances.
Session 2: Joy Comes in the Morning: This session begins with the powerful story of how God miraculously healed Paula of Lyme Disease over ten years ago. This talk will highlight the three secrets to experiencing joy.
Session 3: Singing the Song of Joy: Using Biblical examples, as well as personal stories, Paula will discuss the possibility and importance of making the courageous choice to sing songs of joy even when times are tough.
*This event can be planned as a weekend retreat or a one day seminar. The Joy Seminar is most beneficial if each meeting is followed by small group discussion time. Discussion questions will be provided.

Write Your Wisdom is specifically targeted to those who are exploring the idea of self-publishing a book.

Paula relies on her extensive book marketing experience for this session.
