Paul’s first book, Rare—My daughter’s faithful journey through cancer, was a collaboration with his daughter Rebecca. They both started writing the book soon after a routine check up revealed the disheartening diagnosis of a rare cancer just a week before starting college. Rare is an inspirational story of human perseverance during the most difficult of times. Rebecca never asked the ultimate question “Why me?”, but instead chose to live her life to the fullest, inspiring everyone around her. This book takes you on a journey that makes you laugh, cry and understand your faith in a new way!
Even though Paul spent thirty years as a business leader, this life experience had a profound affect on him like no other. Active throughout his life in Christian faith, Paul chose to become an Ordained Minister after witnessing the unwavering faith of his daughter during her battle. Now he focuses on his minister of “Faith, Loss and God’s Grace” by speaking on TV, radio, online and print magazines and to local parishes.
In presenting Rare in interviews and speaking engagements throughout the country, Reverend Paul has been able to open a more faithful view of loss. We have been overwhelmed with the positive responses we have received as we openly tell our family's story about our daughter's journey with her faith. Having been able to help families in their time of great pain, as we so personally experienced as well, has been one of the greatest accomplishments in our life.
