About Me

Friend, Author, Caring


At fifteen, Paula-Rose and her family spent many weeks on a friend's farm in the Shenandoah Valley. Since all had daily jobs on the farm, she did too. Though Paula grew up in large cities, she loved being there and has suggested to her pastor husband that if they retire she'd like to live where her heart first experienced what she hopes kids do when they read her Gracie books.

Happily married to a Lutheran Pastor, and Chosen People Ministries field missionary, Ron Michelson, the couple have two wonderful married daughters and seven adorable grandchildren. 

When her daughters were little, Paula's husband made up wonderful stories for them. She learned from him the joy of using life situations in a way that blessed children. What started as bedtime stories are realized in this first Gracie book written to entertain and encourage love for God and His Word, while kids learn about the Fruit of the Spirit. 

When not writing, Paula likes to teach Praying the Psalms to the women at her church. Her sisters in Christ have shared how blessed they are to discover those who pray the Psalms draw closer to God while He shows them how to deal with each emotion in a way that brings them closer to Him. A member of her churches weekly prayer team, Paula knows all things the Lord asks of us are accomplished when we start with prayer. 

And remember, if you liked a book please post a few words in the review section for the book and encourage your friends with kids to read this book to their brood and give it to others.
