Broken Vessel of Honor (Paula Mosher Wallace)

“So I cry out to God for healing, for fixing me, for help. And He met me in His faithfulness. He came into my life and started healing and redeeming. I reached out for help and He started giving me that wholeness, but I would look in the mirror and I would still see that broken vessel that couldn’t be used to serve Him. So one day I asked Him, ‘God, why didn’t You just make me a beautiful vessel of honor, that way you could actually use me to minister.’ And He gave me this vision…”

More about Paula and Her Ministry


Author, Speaker, Blogger, and Advocate

Born in the jungles of Peru to missionary parents, Paula’s beginning in life was anything but typical. Raped at the age of 5, Paula was caught in a cycle of damage and abuse which lasted into her thirties. From sexual abuse to later mental, emotional and even spiritual abuse, Paula developed a victim mentality, which fueled decades of continued abuse. The trauma she experienced caused her to develop a variety of psychosomatic illnesses which, at times, left her bed-ridden.

Broken beyond endurance and suicidal, Paula cried out to God for help. He miraculously intervened, faithfully walking with her through a dramatic healing process. Along the way, Paula learned to stand up to her abusers and stop attracting predators. She now knows, from personal experience, the healing, deliverance, and hope that only God can bring.

As an ex-victim, Paula’s passion to help others resulted in her writing Bloom in the Dark, a compilation of true stories shared by women who have walked through personal darkness and abuse. Each story tells how God met, healed, and restored an ex-victim. Readers discover that they are not alone and that there is lasting hope and healing!

Through the ministry of Bloom in The Dark, Paula focuses on writing and speaking to female abuse victims—raising awareness about abuse, bringing hope to victims, and partnering with ministries to help victims recover.

  1. hi Paula, i enjoyed your video post. i didn’t realize how much abuse was in your background! (obviously i don’t read your blog often enough.) this week i wrote in general on this topic, not specifically re sexual abuse, but generally painful memories, etc. i came across some great podcasts of dan allender that i listened to and linked to. you might enjoy them. they are about telling your story and seeing how GOD is in it. they are 4 short pod casts. i really loved them. dan has worked for years with many victims of sexual abuse. he has also been involved with helping rescue women from trafficking as well. he is unusually sensitive to women in ways i don’t always think of.

    i cringe when i think of the message you were given. for one thing, when a child is raped, she is not damaged goods b/c of anything she did. she was horribly sinned against. anyone who acted as if she had any volition or control in that situation is sick at best! i’m sad that there were so many people around you that couldn’t tell you the truth about who you were in the eyes of Jesus! 😦
