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 Episode #40 - "Living in Wholeness"

    LIV2DAY Episode #40 - "Living in Wholeness"

    Do you feel balanced in your life? Do you have the energy you need to go through a given day? It's so easy to get off track and out of balance living in this fallen world, as fallen people. God created our bodies to be in balance. When we're out of balance, we experience problems. God also designed us to be in relationship with Him. Being out of balance spiritually - when we ignore God or deny time with him altogether, we experience imbalance as well. In order to be whole, we need balance in ALL AREAS of our life. In this episode, Dr. Paula discusses what it means to truly live in wholeness, to shed the old and to live as a "new creation," - just as we are promised in Scripture.

    LIV2DAY Episode #39 - "Genetic Impressions & How Your Choices DO Affect the Next Generation"

    LIV2DAY Episode #39 - "Genetic Impressions & How Your Choices DO Affect the Next Generation"

    Have you ever experienced a "de ja vous?" That feeling we often described of having been in a particular set of circumstances, in a specific setting or with a specific person or persons before - it is certainly an ambiguous and mysterious experience! In this episode, Dr. Paula dives into the topic of why it is you might have those experiences. The study of Epigenetics is a fascinating one, and it is one which she has devoted much study to and that she covers in detail in her book, LIV2DAY. Truth be known, we are not only a product of our ancestors in terms of our anatomy, tendency toward certain diseases or other physiological traits; but we are also born with genetic impressions of their likes, dislikes, tastes, fears, experiences and more. Many may reject this theory, but in Dr. Paula's true form - she explains how both science and scripture support it.

    LIV2DAY Episode #38 - “Anger & Division”

    Dr. Paula shares her perspective on the permissive anger and divisiveness in our culture. Is it possible that the greater war, the war that really counts, is the one between good and evil? And if that’s true, what tough decisions must Christians face today? Dr, Paula asserts that there is no place for indecisiveness, no time for fear or lingering in worry. Standing on The Word, standing for what you believe in and choosing to be bold is what is being asked of each of us. Tune in as she offers encouragement through Gods word during these unprecedented times.

    The purpose of the event is to bring the message of God’s perfect design of our body and how He designed us to maintain a perfect balance. Sadly, we live in a world where we have neglected our beautiful Temple and therefore cannot serve God the way He intended. The messages that will be shared will all come from a Christian perspective and minister to the audience in a way that will be inspiring, challenging, and most importantly, life-changing.
