My name is Paul Marc Goulet, and I’m the co-writer of A Miracle Every Day, together with Eric CéIérier. Allow me to introduce myself a bit… I would love to hear what your story is, so feel free to leave a message!
I was raised by two French Canadian parents who were married for over 50 years. My dad was a World War II hero who made his way up the corporate ladder and my mom was a stay at home parent. On the outside everything looked great, but our family was quite dysfunctional. My dad struggled with PTSD at times, and all of the five kids were affected by his pain.
Although I had a lot of success playing ice hockey, I struggled with resentment, anger, depression and rejection. I eventually started abusing drugs and alcohol and contemplated suicide by the age of 20.
One day, after a hockey practice, a group called Athletes In Action shared about a relationship with Jesus Christ. I’d never heard about a “born again” experience. I’d never heard about the promise of an abundant life before that day. I’d never heard about John 10:10 or Revelation 3:20.
One week later, my eldest brother invited me to receive Christ in a personal way. I did, and the rest of my life started changing. I started getting into the Bible and hanging around Christians who really cared for me. I shifted my major in university to Psychology so that I could understand myself and help others.
I found the girl of my dreams (Denise) in my last year of university, married her, and headed off to Bible College and then graduated school.
It was in school that I met two of my life-long mentors: Dr. David Lim and Dr. Richard Dobbins. I have been helped so much by people like this. It is because of real friends and mentors that I have been able to start several counseling centers and lead a church that has become a worldwide movement.
Life has been very difficult at times, but God is so good. He’s helped me focus on helping people become healthy, spiritually, emotionally and relationally. It’s been an amazing journey.
This is why I’ve joined the “A Miracle Every Day” team. It is my deepest desire to help you experience the abundant life and help you along your personal journey.
Never forget: You are a miracle!
