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. "

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.

Soldier Suicide Prevention Speaker Empowering Soldiers to Overcome Adversity
Soldier Suicide Prevention Speaker to Connect with and Communicate to Soldiers Empowering Commanders and Military Troops to Overcome Adversity
Contact Paul for: Heartfelt, Transparent, Relevant, Relatable and Inspirational Presentations with Rich Content to Impact and Transform Military Commanders and Troops
"Breakthrough for a Broken Heart" author Paul F Davis knows the secrets to overcome adversity, transcend tragedy and to triumph over tribulations to live victoriously!
Davis, raised by his beloved Army retired Lt. Colonel grandfather, contemplated suicide at the tender age of 12 when his father and stepmother took custody of him and he suffered child abuse and neglect.
Thankfully Colonel Krofchik, Paul's precious grandfather whom he calls "Pop-Pop" came to get him a couple weekends a month to walk with Paul shoulder to shoulder through his trying and turbulent time during his adolescence.
In like fashion, Paul, the cousin of a retired Army Ranger, walks shoulder to shoulder with soldiers providing heartfelt and inspirational talks to empower soldiers to overcome adversity and value their precious lives again.
As General Chiarelli told ABC News concerning the contributory factors leading to soldier suicide, they are primarily threefold:
1. Money troubles
2. Substance abuse
3. Failed relationships
Davis, a soldier suicide prevention speaker, speaks powerfully and personally to all three of these struggles of soldiers.
When Davis was hit by a drunk driver in July 2008, the car he and his wife shared was totaled in an instant. The driver earned her 2nd DUI in two years, served her 90 days and was thereafter released. But Paul remained imprisoned to circumstances and financial hardships resulting from that accident for two years, the first four months of which was spent battling his insurance company to get a replacement vehicle.
Meanwhile Paul and his wife drove rental cars at a huge expense for four months. As medical bills and expenses piled up, Paul felt emotionally overwhelmed. Nevertheless Paul purposed in his heart to cherish and celebrate life regardless of the external obstacles trying to squeeze him in.
As for substance abuse, Paul's biological mother (a former high school cheerleader and university graduate) got snared by alcohol and drug use. Hence Paul grew up with his maternal grandparents until his father and stepmother took custody of him in 5th grade. As for Paul's mother throughout his childhood, she was either in a drug rehab, jail, bar getting drunk or mental ward being evaluated as a result of her ongoing substance abuse.
Paul is also familiar with failed relationships. A worldwide minister and motivational speaker who has touched 76 countries building bridges cross-culturally and empowering people of all ages to live their dreams, Paul suffered a terrible divorce after his wife of 5 years had an affair while he was speaking in Pakistan following 9-11.
Although Paul earnestly tried to reconcile and seek restoration of his marriage through counseling, his ex-wife remained unrepentant and wayward in heart. Thus two months after her infidelity and ongoing drinking and befriending other men, Paul filed for divorced and proceeded to move on with his life.
Even momentarily during the separation and eventual divorce thoughts of murder and suicide went through Paul's mind. Thankfully Paul found strength in God, prayer, church and life coach training; which all collectively gave birth to Paul's book "Breakthrough For A Broken Heart" as he processed his personal pain during his emotional ground zero.
Given that Paul has personally and profoundly repeatedly overcome immense adversity in his own life, Paul speaks from a great depth and sincerity when addressing soldiers struggling with suicide making them feel safe and honoring their feelings and emotions, while empowering them to rise above the inner turbulence to triumph over their personal tragedies and live victoriously.
As even U.S. military chaplains have admitted and confessed to suicide attempts, soldiers do not need to feel ashamed because these are normal symptoms of battle fatigue and war. Rather than feel downcast, dejected or defeated, Paul empowers soldiers to come together and transparently share and discuss their struggles to be mutually edified, enriched and empowered by each others' perspectives, insight and experiences.
Paul therefore successfully gets rid of the dehumanizing stigma involved with behavioral health issues so as to reaffirm soldiers in their personal identity outside of combat. Thus soldiers are strengthened, affirmed and fortified to love themselves despite their struggles, weaknesses and personal challenges as they recognize these are issues we all face and part of life itself.
After being with Paul, soldiers are able to let go of built up stress, anxiety, self loathesome attitudes and tendencies to arise with new hope and a positive attitude and outlook on life.
Affirming and renewing soldiers to again love life is Paul's expertise and personal passion. Resurrect hope in your soldiers, commanders and troops on your base by bringing Paul in to empower your battle weary soldiers to regain their self-respect and personal dignity.
Undoubtedly the soldiers who have so bravely and tirelessly served and protected our country are entited to be weary, restless and feel hopeless at times. By honoring these feelings as common, normal and expected Paul removes the emasculating dehumanizing stigma of suicide and imparts to soldiers a new outlook and love for life!
Newness of life is here! Don't delay! Save a soldier's life today!

Paul F. Davis grew up the son of a mother (a former high school cheerleader and honor graduate) who was an alcoholic and substance abuser. As a child Paul saw his beloved mother self-destruct and torment his grandparents as a result of alcoholism and using every drug imaginable.
Ironically, Paul’s mother (a former drunk driver herself) was killed when crossing the road as a pedestrian when an 18 year-old drunk driver hit her – killing her on impact.
Dead on arrival, police awaited the return of the young drunk driver who left the scene of the accident. Upon returning, the police video (which Paul later painfully watched) showed the young man crying and screaming, “I can’t live with this on my mind!”
Paul a former lifeguard and fitness trainer doesn’t drink alcohol to this day. Yet Paul doesn’t condemn those who do and kindly serves as the designated driver whenever anybody close to him drinks.
Ironically, after a childhood of pain and hell as a result of substance abuse and drunk driving, Paul himself was hit and nearly killed in July 2008 by a drunk driver (a two-time DUI offender driving after her license was revoked). The 61 year-old lady barreling down the road in a large Chevy truck, driving drunk at 4:40PM on a Tuesday afternoon, hit Paul’s car repeatedly (completely totaling it and nearly killing Paul) without stopping, attempting to flee the scene of the accident, after which she hit and totaled a parked car before being arrested by police.
Paul’s 1997 Honda Accord Special Edition, which Paul had just put $350 of work into the day of the accident (thanks to the generosity of Paul’s father-in-law visiting from California), which was destroyed in a moment by an inconsiderate drunk driver.
For nearly five months Paul drove numerous rental cars, while battling his insurance company to be financially compensated to purchase a replacement vehicle for his automobile totaled by the negligible drunk driver. Even worse Paul spent days and nights in hospitals and doctors’ offices receiving medical treatment after the accident for injuries, which still cause him pain and trouble to this day. The added stress and strain medically and financially also negatively effected Paul’s marriage as logistically he and his wife shared the one vehicle the drunk driver totaled.
Personally encountering the crooked and fraudulent business practices of tow truck companies, medical professionals, insurance claims adjusters, and car salesmen added additional aggravation and suffering to Paul’s life at a time when he was most vulnerable.
Nevertheless Paul persevered and battled through it all to stand tall, becoming a voice of conscience to substance abusers, drunk drivers, they who prey on victims of catastrophic accidents, and those suffering through seasons of tragedy turning their world upside down.
Paul F. Davis is a substance abuse victim and survivor. Paul inescapably speaks with passion, empathy, and heartfelt conviction to awake the conscience of the irresponsible and ill informed. Paul is a worldwide and frequently requested substance abuse prevention speaker, who has touched over 76 countries and 6 continents, bringing hope to the hurting, healing families, and transforming people of all ages to live responsibly.
Paul F Davis is a drunk driving prevention speaker whose Mother was killed by drunk driver. Paul’s substance abuse prevention talks and stories awaken audiences of all ages, while helping us remember life is precious.
Don’t allow those you love and call friends to drive drunk. Value and protect the lives of those you love, as well as the other innocent people traveling on your city’s roads and highways. Drunk driving leads to personal injury, financial hardship, imprisonment, loss of life and pain and suffering for countless families.
Have a heart and think before you drink and drive.
Don’t drink and drive lest you die prematurely and kill somebody! Drunk driving prevention and awareness speaker Paul F Davis speaks to audiences of all ages about substance abuse prevention saving lives from the foolishness and deadly combination of drinking and driving.
Paul's beloved Mother was killed by a drunk driver in 2000, after which Paul himself was hit by a drunk driver in July, 2008 totaling Paul's car and badly injuring him. The drunk driver who hit Paul went to court and was thrown in jail for her 2nd DUI in two years. Even worse the 61 y/o lady who hit Paul was driving illegally on a revoked license, she being drunk and behind the wheel at 4:40pm on a Tuesday afternoon.
Paul understandably is passionate about prevention and persuading people of all ages not to drive drunk and to drink responsibly. Paul's personal stories of people close to him struggling with alcohol abuse and imprisonment for alcohol related misdemeanors sober up the hardest of hearts.
Paul’s talks about drunk driving prevention are heartfelt and compassionate, while simultaneously being entertaining and empowering.
The irony of Paul’s Mom being killed by a drunk driver is that she herself was a substance abuser and alcoholic who also got behind the wheel while under the influence. Years later when an 18 year-old drunk driver killed Paul’s Mother, it just reconfirmed Paul’s convictions and decision not to drink himself.
Nevertheless Paul willingly offers to be the designated driver whenever those he is around in a social setting are drinking. Paul therefore speaks with passion, while not being condemning or judgmental. Paul’s drunk driving prevention talks awake all ages, while reminding us all the importance of respecting the preciousness of life.
Paul has spoken to thousands of people throughout 76 countries and 6 continents about substance abuse prevention, drinking responsibly and the importance of not driving when drinking.
