"40 Gifts of Hope contains an incredible message of hope and love. Paula Umaña's story is truly inspirational, and the book is filled with similar stories of people who have gone from pain and anger to finding peace and boundless confidence in God's providential plan. All who read this book will be renewed in their determination to turn tragic events into powerful stories of healing and light."
Christiana Figueres, former UN climate chief
"Paula is a powerful speaker who has an inspirational personal story to tell and to draw strength from"
NORTHWEST INDIANA CATHOLIC WOMEN'S CONFERENCE
"Listening to Paula’s story and insights into suffering were extremely inspiring. It gave me hope. Her testimony on suffering really made appreciate how our faith can carry us through any suffering and obstacles. She was outstanding, so inspiring.
Paula was very touching and powerful. Best speaker of the day! I loved her ending prayer where we put our own name into choosing the better part. It really brought her whole testimony into my heart and made it part of me. Tears all around! Who wasn't crying with love and hope?"
Michele Faehnle, Co-chair, Columbus Catholic Women's Conference
"It was a beautiful gift to have Paula share her witness of faith to the attendees of the Columbus Catholic Women’s Conference. Her story of hope in suffering touched the hearts of all who were there and filled everyone with joy! We laughed, we cried and gave our "FIAT" to the Lord together. She was an inspiration to all! "
