Author It's easy for Pam Sherrod to relate to people who are hurting. As a child she was called 'a cripple' because she struggled with the physical challenges that followed multiple hip surgeries and debilitating arthritis. Her health problems, however, didn't insulate her from high school bullies. Much to her surprise, it actually attracted them.
Unfortunately, she'd run into other bullies throughout her life, from a violent college roommate and the sorority sisters who hazed her, to a stalker on the streets of Washington D.C. She's faced sexual harassment, racial tensions, and a rocky marriage that ended in divorce.
These challenges were only the beginning of a troubled life that left her broken and disillusioned.
Pam battled severe depression for many years, which is why she's so familial with the devastating and paralyzing effect of emotional turmoil. Fortunately, she's also aware of the amazing power of God's love to heal and restore a broken life.
During a spiritual experience in Hawaii, Pam realized that the Lord was calling her to do ministry work and she began looking for ways to serve.
Pam later witnessed powerful miracles and began to record her experiences, and those of others, in documentaries that she produced. She knew that it would offer hope and encouragement to people who've experienced painful losses and devastating experiences.
