Paula White is the one-woman dynamo who is taking the Christian world by storm. There has been a wave of disappointment that is blanketing Florida with the inferred appointment as temporary pastor of Zachary Tims church.
She and her husband pastor were once ministers to one of the ten largest churches in the U.S. in Tampa, Florida. White had risen to prominence as a preacher, motivational speaker, author and TV personality after co-founding what is now Without Walls International Church with her husband and starting her own ministry.
“I think it’s time we stop being hypocrites in the pulpit. I think … it’s time that we take the mask off to this generation and show them that we have the same issues and the same struggles.We going public with all our stuff. Somebody’s got to get real in the church now.”- Paula White
Her daily TV show reaches 90 percent of the world. She has a big-time book deal and the endorsement of one of America’s most respected spiritual leaders… Bishop T.D. Jakes.
From the ages of six to thirteen, Paula endured years of sexual and physical abuse.Paula’s downward spiral continued as she searched for the love she so desperately needed.
“One thing just began to build in my life after another. Then there were the eating disorders: bulimia, anorexia… Sleeping with different people, thinking this is how you find love,” she says. “There was such a fear in me that [men] would never come back so do whatever you have to. Hit me, beat me, call me a dog, do whatever, just don’t leave.”
