    If you’re looking for a master class in believing in yourself, flipping the script on rejection and letting your WHY be your guide, you’ve come to the perfect place!

As one of the very few self-made female billionaires in America and the first female CEO in L’Oreal’s 100+ year history, this trailblazer risked everything – leaving the safe and secure career she thought she’d spend her life in to bet on herself and solve her own problem: creating makeup to cover her rosacea. And here's the kicker: this major pivot to her calling was anything but easy. Hear Jamie's jaw dropping story that led her through a chorus of countless nos from investors and retailers, the verge of bankruptcy and the 10 brave and fateful minutes that would put IT Cosmetics on the map and shift the beauty industry forever.

    Beth Moore: Painful Beginnings, Necessary Endings and God’s Faithfulness for In Between

    Beth Moore: Painful Beginnings, Necessary Endings and God’s Faithfulness for In Between

    Leaning into a big call on your life often requires a healthy dose of courage – of which this week’s guest has no shortage of! Beloved Bible study leader, bestselling author, speaker and all-around visionary, Beth Moore, is a faith leader familiar to many – but until recently, known by few. This week Beth takes Paula on the deeply personal journey she’s been on that led her to release her much-anticipated memoir, “All My Knotted Up Life”. 
    After spending decades writing, leading and speaking to sold-out arenas around the globe, Beth opens up to Paula about the critical cultural moment that led this lifelong Southern Baptist to use her voice (and her Tweets) to stand up for women. Her actions ignited a public firestorm within the church about women’s roles, which would eventually lead Beth to break away from the denomination she was born into. Hear the untold story behind her deep conviction, her message for anyone finding themself surprised by where their calling has taken them and why she says teaching aerobics is still one of the best things she’s done in her life! Note: While this conversation is a healthy dose of heavy and light, some content may not be suitable for all ears. Listener discretion is advised. 
    Check out Beth’s new picture book, “All My Knotted Up Life”

    Kirk Cameron: Accidental TV Heartthrob, Professional Prankster and Lifelong Learner

    The 80’s called with one of their biggest heartthrobs on the line! Husband, father, actor and filmmaker, Kirk Cameron, joins Paula for a totally fun and genuine conversation about child stardom, finding faith and the inner prankster that leaves you wondering where the Growing Pains’ Mike Seaver stops and this real life troublemaker big brother begins! 
    With zero interest in acting and a love for biology and science, hear the coincidental story that led Kirk to star in one of television’s most beloved shows at just 14. In the midst of navigating his own typical teen struggles, that iconic set would open some of the most important doors of Kirk’s life, including to the church and to meeting Chelsea, his wife of 32 years. Kirk spills the worst prank he ever played on Chelsea, shares the real life reaction his kids had to finding his vintage Teen Beat covers and also gives Paula the scoop about his latest passion project that might just have him visiting a library near you.

I just listened to your first podcast with Candace Cameron-Buré. It was so amazing and fun. Didn’t look at my watch once while I was working out. That’s means something. I had never heard of you Paula. Thanks to Candace, I feel like I have a new friend to listen to each Tuesday. A definite winner !!!!
