Dr. Paula Parker is an esteemed mentor with important insights gained through her doctoral studies, pastoral care, teaching, and rich experience. She carries powerful knowledge which she delivers through her book, Roots Matter, and her ministry by the same name. If you can secure her for one-on-one spiritual guidance or as a speaker then you should. In any case, read her book (and listen to her interview on The Coffeepot Fellowship Podcast). Dr. Parker's work with Roots Matter is important for everyone because everyone's family has trauma and everyone's trauma needs to be redeemed for its survivors.
