Paul Danielson suffered horribly at the hands of an abusive foster father. The relationship ended only after Paul was chased out of the house with a twelve gauge shot gun. Today, by the mercy and grace of God he is a whole and happy person. Listen to Paul tell his moving story of tragedy to triumph. Hope for the discouraged is a ministry providing hope to those who have suffered from any kind of abuse.
As a pastor, speaker and Christian leader Paul is uniquely qualified because he knows first hand the pains of physical and emotional abuse. Suffering at the hands of a vindictive and cruel foster father he became so disillusioned with life that he contemplated suicide. He has overcome mental retardation, abuse, and finds that a daily, intimate walk with God is the prescription for emotional healing.
