Paula saw the benefits of Psalms & Stretches first hand when she experienced a real sense of reconnecting to both herself and to God through the scripture, movement and meditation that she took part in during the class. She immediately saw how Psalms & Stretches could be a useful tool for the recovery community, which she is part of. Paula works voluntarily with the Recovery-Healing community, which supports people with addictive persuasions of all kinds. She has experienced for herself what a difference a relationship with God can bring to this turbulent journey, where often childhood traumas and the effect of dysfunctional behaviour, recognised or unrecognised, can cause pain within us and to those around. Paula had a desire to use Psalms & stretches to bring those struggling with inner turmoil into a meditative space where God can minister to mind, body and spirit. She believes it can create space to not only help us reconnect to our own emotions and inner conflicts but to invite God into this conversation, who in his infinite power always meets us with love. Having no previous experience in dance teaching and no certificate in exercise, Paula took on the challenge of a Level 2 Exercise to Music qualification, which demonstrated her dedication and passion for this ministry! We are in awe of her perseverance and commitment to continuing to serve others and her special skills and experiences in this field are an asset to her. We can’t wait to see how God uses Psalms & Stretches as part of Paula’s calling.
