GOD USES BROKEN PEOPLE TO DO BIG THINGS!
Paula Jauch-Motivational Speaker
“ I share my story so others can find healing from trauma and addiction “
“It is my belief that anyone can be set free, and healed if they are willing to look deep within themselves to find their wounds and receive the free gift of God’s unconditional love, forgiveness, and life-transforming power through Christ Jesus.”
Paula Jauch is a motivational speaker and writer who is dedicated to helping others break free from life-controlling situations and strongholds that hold them back, like eating disorders, self-harm, self-hate, addictions, unplanned pregnancy, depression, anxiety, and sexual abuse.
Paula’s work experiences led her to realize she needed her own healing from childhood trauma after growing up in abuse and addiction. After she graduated from an alternative education high school and had two children of her own by age eighteen, her heart was drawn to jobs to help children like herself. She worked seven years at Juvenile Court Schools in Las Vegas, Nevada, and five years at the Clark County Department of Family Services as a juvenile service assistant working with troubled teens.
In 2004 she relocated to Terre Haute, Indiana, where she worked for two years at Gibault Inc. as a youth specialist working with teen boy sex offenders. After leaving the Gibault home, she worked a few months at the Vigo County Courthouse as a bailiff, but decided to leave her job when it became uncomfortable, because her family name was well known in the court system.
What she learned through all of her work experience is that if these kids didn’t get the proper help they needed, they would end up involved in a gang, addicted to drugs, in prison, or even death. Paula knew God was calling her deeper to take a step of faith and get the help she needed so she could help children who experienced similar childhoods. Paula’s life experience enables her speaking and writing to empower people from all walks of life. Her goal is to help people, especially young women, get free from self-destructive cycles and addiction and help them discover that their life has purpose, so they can become productive and thriving individuals. She encourages her audiences to let Jesus write the next chapter of their lives.
Paula has spoken to and shared her story with women’s groups, medical professionals, pastoral staff, counselors, Teen Mops, Mops, Crisis Pregnancy Center, Juvenile Detention Centers, at-risk schools, and recovery programs.
Paula enjoys being active, spending time with her family, and traveling. She is a happily married mother of four and a proud nana. Paula currently lives in West Michigan.
