Anne Paulk

Q&A Panel

Anne Paulk is an author, speaker, spokesperson and advocate for men and women struggling with unwanted same-sex attractions and is the executive director and a board member of Restored Hope Network. Restored Hope is a US coalition of member and affiliate ministries, pastors and Christian counselors who restore hope to those broken by sexual and relational sin, especially those impacted by homosexuality.

“I do this work because of the work the Lord has done in me,” Paulk explains. “I know it’s possible to be set free from sexual confusion and homosexuality because that is my story. It is the testimony of thousands just like me. We at Restored Hope want to make sure all who seek the same healing we’ve experienced through submitting to Jesus can have it be their story, too.”

Central to Restored Hope’s mission is the counsel and resources it offers to equip the church to impart that transformative power of Christ. Paulk has spotlighted that power in thousands of television, radio and magazine interviews that she began doing in the ‘90s and continues to do today. She has appeared on Oprah, Good Morning America, The CBS Evening News, The 700 Club and Focus on the Family and been profiled by People magazine and Newsweek – which put her on its cover.

Brown’s In The Line of Fire, Joni and Friends, Table Talk (Daystar TV), Total Living Network with Jerry Rose, Focal Point with Brian Fischer, and The Georgene Rice Show (SRN), among others. Her story of redemption has also been features in documentaries, including Such Were Some of You (Pure Passion TV/2014).

She is the author of Restoring Sexual Identity: Hope for Women Who Struggle with Same-Sex Attraction (Harvest House Publishers) and co-author of Love Won Out (Focus on the Family), She also has written for Spirit Led Woman, Charisma and The Gospel Coalition.
