After severe migraines led to a devastating opioid addiction, Paula Friedrichsen lost all hope…until God led her on a journey to freedom and peace that she says was nothing less than miraculous.
Paula became addicted to the Vicodin prescribed to her for migraine headaches. Years later she felt the urging of the Lord to trust Him for total healing of both migraines and drug addiction. Paula broke free from chronic pain and painkiller addiction with God’s grace and healing in 2011!
She loves to speak on the topic of Addiction Recovery and has shared her story and strategies at many recovery meetings. She has written a book called, A Season of Breakthrough, about her experience, and her story has been featured on The 700 Club, Charisma Magazine, Simple Grace Magazine, The Elijah List, and First For Women Magazine.

Your Season of Breakthrough is a series of messages designed to strengthen and refresh those in addiction recovery. On a sunny day in 2008 Paula awoke with her first migraine headache—and had it, in one form or another, for the next 1000 days. Three years of acute pain, of medical tests, and of living in a fog of narcotic addiction. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit she finally emerged from the darkness and entered a season of breakthrough and recovery.
Your Season of Breakthrough can be presented as stand-alone messages, or as a one-day seminar comprised of three sessions:

Paula has shared her story and message of recovery with:
"I was thoroughly blessed by Paula’s ministry. It is biblical, practical, relational, and chock-full of truth and the Holy Spirit. She has a delightful sense of humor, and her transparency offers others light to walk by. The church has worn masks for far too long and desperately needs leaders like Paula." ~ Deanne Day, Kailua Kona, HI
