Despite the incredible health challenges Dr. Paula McDonald has experienced, her message to LIV2DAY will inspire you to get up and keep going in the storm. A former collegiate athlete and lifelong health-nut, at age 43 Paula was diagnosed with a massive spinal tumor and told she had only a minor chance of surviving the surgery, much less returning to full mobility. Her full recovery stunned her medical team and fueled her passion for holistic living and disease prevention. Within a decade, yet another tumor was found. This time it was in her left lung and removing it was her only option.

With a B.S. in Biology and a firm belief in God as the Intelligent Designer, Paula became impassioned to find answers...answers to how she could attain the balance she so desperately needed in order to remain-tumor free and more than that, achieve optimum health! She went on to obtain a Master's and a Ph.D. in Theology. Having studied both science and scripture in-depth, she found that indeed the keys to the balance, to the wellness in life laid not only in the scriptures, nor in evidence-based science; instead, it was there waiting for her, for all of God's children, in the combination of the two. The Intelligent Designer who had breathed life into her had also ordered every cell in her body and every biological process that she had herself taught to others.

Today, Dr. Paula McDonald has devoted her book, "LIV2DAY, Abundantly
Connecting to God" and now her LIV2DAY podcast to sharing all that she has learned with the many people who desire better health, more balance, connecting to God,
and practical advice on how to transform your life with tangible daily choices.

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Episode 4 - "Created by The Creator"

    In this episode of the LIV2DAY series "Wired2Know God," Dr, Paula focuses on being created by the Creator. We have an intelligent designer, God, who hard-wired us to know Him and He also gave us the freedom to choose Him, or to choose to be apart from Him. What does the word "create" mean? And if God didn't create "all things," then who or what did? What do you believe? There is still so much more to explore! Join us in this continued study of God, the human brain, science, and how they are all truly connected.

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Episode 3 - "Tapping Into the God-Brain Connection"

    In this episode of the LIV2DAY series "Wired2Know God," Dr, Paula compares our human need to plug into God to the same as a cellphone's needs to be connected to a charger, or the need for an electric car to be recharged in order to continue driving, it is in one word, essential. Essential to a sense of balance, essential to full living. God wired us to know Him. God sent Jesus to bring us closer to Him, and His death took away the great divide. Our brains are already wired to know Him, and we each have the innate need to connect with Him.. A few minutes each day will bring you the balance that your mind, body, and soul inherently crave. Tune in to hear a few examples of how easy it can be to make that time when you consciously allow for it.

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Episode 2 - "The Anatomy of the Human Brain"

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Episode 2 - "The Anatomy of the Human Brain"

    In this second episode of Dr. Paula's "Wired2KNow God" series we learn about the anatomy of the human brain! If you're not a science geek, don't worry! Dr. Paula unpacks what is being found in the emerging field of neurotheology into the simplest of terms. If it is true that we are made in the image of God, as the Bible teaches, then is it also true that the brain, which drives our thoughts, emotions and functions in the body is also made in His image? If so, then in what way do we see God's own image in how our brain is wired? Dr. Paula unpacks the answers to these questions and so much more.

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Introduction

    LIV2DAY - Wired2Know God, Introduction

    Welcome to Dr. Paula's latest LIV2DAY series - Wired2Know God. As a former biology teacher and Ph.D. in Theology, Dr. Paula McDonald brings us her latest findings on the topic of how we can be confident that we were created by an intelligent, intentional Creator, God himself.
    If you've been following Dr. Paula, or if you've read her book Theosenthesis, LIV2DAY, you know her passion for science and for God. Her work centers on the premise that the more we study science, the stronger the case is for Christ, and for the truths revealed to us in the Bible. No matter how many times scientists, archaeologists, and non-believers try to disprove Creationism, still, their "most accepted cosmological models" are not test-worthy and cannot be replicated. At best, their published work remains today no more than a culmination of theories.
    Join us in this episode as Dr. Paula shares what we can expect in episodes ahead, on this 6-week journey. We will cover more than the DNA structure that makes us human, and delve into a fact-based discussion that points to God's undoubtedly, purposeful and personal design of man, made in His own image.

    LIV2DAY - Episode 86 "The Vibrational Frequency of Prayer"

    LIV2DAY - Episode 86 "The Vibrational Frequency of Prayer"

    We know that all living things have a vibrational frequency. We know that sound also has  varying levels of frequency. Scientists, especially in the emerging area of healing frequency therapy, also know that thought patterns even emit a frequency. Did you know that your mood exerts its own frequency? That's why you can feel when someone is actually happy or sad, or angry. All frequencies are measured in units called hertz, or broken down further into megahertz. It was Einstein who discovered that all matter vibrates at the atomic level. And so it is also true with a spoken word, a thought, and yes, a prayer.
    When Dr. Paula McDonald began writing her book, LIV2DAY, Theosynthesis, she began digging into these and other scientific principles. For those of you who follow this podcast, you may already share her fascination for science and the fact that the more you dig into it, the more you find that it points to an all knowing, all powerful, perfect Creator God.
    Join Dr. Paula in this exciting episode on the vibrational power of prayer, and how as Believers, we can be confident that our prayers, the laying on of hands, the use of essential oils, and more - when done in Jesus' name - are a worthy endeavor.
