Just finished The Chronicles Of Paul! What can I say? Well, really a lot. I’ll try not to go on and on too much.
First though, I’ve got to tell you how intrigued I was with Paul’s story, beginning with the first chapter of “Issues”. You learn real fast that he had a very difficult childhood. Therefore, his life as an adolescent, teenager, and young adult was riddled with crime, addiction, and run-ins with the law. Makes perfect sense to me. Then …somewhere down the line he meets Kiesha! The love story begins. I was hooked. I had to know what happened next.
Here comes Loopholes, more graphic and detailed than the first. I could hardly stand it! I started one evening after work reading it and fell asleep with it in my hands, (NO, not because it was boring) and had to finish it the next morning before going to work. I thought I just would not be able to function that day if I didn’t.
Sidenote: I’m a 65-year-old Christian woman that starts each day with her bible and prayer. However, that particular morning I chose Paul’s book over my bible because of the time crunch. God understood, because He knew I was still learning of His love and grace. Paul, however, did not. He informed me to reach for my bible first, then his book later! I finished Loopholes, cheering Paul and Kiesha on, and gave them a little corner of my heart that is just theirs.
Well, I just had to have “The Chronicles of Paul” in my hot little hands ASAP. This book is amazing! Hang on when you read it. If you are like me, you’ll be exhausted, yet exhilarated, when you get to the back cover. Paul’s style of writing is sooo raw and real that you feel like you were right there alongside him. I know Paul went through a lot writing his books, but I am so grateful he did. This man is on a mission to get his story out so that it could save someone some heartache and give them hope. Like he says, if he could turn his life around, you can too….with God’s help.
“Chronicles” is sooo intimate. Life lessons are taught here if y’all accept them. You can also learn what impact just one situation can have on your life. How you handle it affects you and those around you. Paul has such a deep love for family, and the HUGE extended family. He’s loyal, humble, and appreciative of those that helped him. God puts angels here on earth to help us, and he sure surrounded Paul with them when he needed them most! Sometimes, you get to be the angel!
If you met Paul today for the first time you would think “what a happy, nice, polite, young man.” Then if you read his books, you’ll never believe what he went through to get where he is today. Again, if he can you can too.
Paul takes nothing for granted. He is very successful today. He has a beautiful family, home, job and is an author! He’ll never understand the influence he’s had on me by sharing his story with me. I have a choice every day how it’s going to go, and I choose joy!
Thank you for being you, Paul Kurko Jr., and being my friend!!

When I sit down to write, I take what has affected me and put it all into words in an effort to inspire men and women from all walks of life. I had no clue that sharing my story would have the impact that it has. It’s a fact that writing can and will set you free from issues that have kept you held captive as a prisoner of self-doubt and mental torment.
I have a God found love for humanity. I want those suffering from one issue or another to know that they can break the chains that hold them down. If you need someone to talk to, I’m here for you.
