" Paul - you have an amazing way with words! You are a great communicator and have a gift of getting your reader excited.
I have looked at both of your web sites and I am blown away!! You are doing such AMAZING and WONDERFUL things!!! I downloaded your mp3 video and watched it with my 12 y/o son. He rewinded it over and over and over... "

- Lisa (North Island, New Zealand)
" I wanted to thank for the poem that I stumbled upon today when I typed "I can't take it anymore" into Google. I just typed that in a moment of frustration to see what I would get, and there were the words that I desperately needed to hear. Mostly, I was reminded to pray in that moment of frustration. I just thought you might like to know that your poem captured so many of my feelings, and I thank you for posting it. "

" I wanted to thank you for taking the time to give me such valuable advice and insight into all the facets of my life at this moment.
Since we last spoke, I've been able to implement several of the suggestions that you mentioned and have witnessed favorable results. A notable one was with a client I mentioned I was having a little bit of problems with. Your suggestion in dealing with his demands paid off and he retracted from a demand the first time I tried it! Needless to say, I'm now making that a habit. :o)
In terms of my relationship with the girl I spoke to you about, your book Are You Ready for True Love? brought out a lot of compatibility questions enabling me to realize we're not a good match.
Thanks for being a blessing. "

- Ozzie Perez (Orlando, FL)
" Before meeting Paul I did not have a concrete plan for the future. I did not know whether to study in school or what. Now I feel stronger, a refreshing and rebirth. Paul waked me up and made me believe. Since this, every day I feel excited, full of energy, able to work. I can move mountains!"

Thank you for sharing your own personal story.

- Rita D'Anna
" It's not often that I find a book where I want to buy ten copies and give them out. Paul's book sparkles with his fire and is a testimony to what sort of dynamic person that he is. He is a prophetic voice that is rare to find these days. Keep on blessing people Paul you are an inspiration. Thanks you have impacted my life! "

" Thank you for the time you shared w/ us in Daytona Beach. I didn't believe in anything. I was very skeptical, but as soon as you started sharing your life and experiences I started to open up and listen.

Paul, when you were taking about your childhood it hit very close to home for me. I was definitely lacking faith & I couldn't believe that w/ a life like mine, that there was any sort of God or Savior. But seeing that you had a somewhat similar experience in life helped me to open my eyes & my heart to God. Now I have a new peace in my heart, a calmness, something I have never felt. "

- Amber Ricard (Daytona Beach, FL)
"Hey Paul, I read one of your books that your mom brought over a couple of years ago. It was so good and so true. I loved it! "
