Dying Before Dying

Reverend Paula Stone Williams

Embracing change.

There was no ceremony to say goodbye to the man Paula Stone Williams was before she transitioned to being a woman. Despite being a pastor by training, Paula was unprepared for the despair this death before death triggered for her and those she loved. Combining tremendous honesty and expansive spirituality, Paula offers comfort at a time when many of us are mourning the loss of who we once were while searching for a way forward.
