My name is Paula Whidden. I earned my Master’s of Divinity at Fuller Theological Seminary and served in active church ministry for 15 years. When I became a stay-at-home-mom, writing became my way to express the many things God had taught me and continues to teach me.
God has blessed me- with some nasty experiences and amazing teachers and mentors. Since the Bible tells me that to whom much is given much is required, I felt the need to create a place to help other people who want to follow Jesus learn how to do it, one choice at a time.
To be fair, I don’t have all the answers. I’ve certainly messed up many times and witnessed many other messes. It makes me feel like a person who stands out in the middle of the road waving people down and saying, “Hey, don’t go that way, it’s nothing but trouble.”
God is so kind though. He provides many turns to help us find our way back to Him. I call those, Faithful Choices.
If you are anything like me, you’ve gotten lost before. It seems that every time I want to explore a new place (and for many of us faith is a new place), I get lost. Sometimes I just need to adjust my route a little, and sometimes I take one seriously scenic, car sickness inducing trip.
