Dr. Mary G. Patton

I am an Author, Speaker, and Consultant. I am a retired Educator, and Christian Psychotherapist. I am listed in the International Who’s Who of Professionals. My passion is healing the hurt from residuals of emotional trauma using a biblical perspective and I write for that purpose.

My approach is an integration of Bible principles and psychology which has proven to be a highly effective strategy in healing hurt from past trauma events.

I have written three books designed to facilitate emotional healing. My first book, Emotional Trauma in School: Cause, Effect, Cure addresses how early trauma can negatively affect student behavior and consequently their learning process and life choices. In this book I address how teacher attitude and behavior influences student behavior and poor school performance. My second book, Therapeutic Application of Biblical Principles for Overcoming Emotional Trauma is the companion workbook to Emotional Trauma in School: Cause, Effect, Cure. It is the suggested cure. The workbook contains information and activities to help teachers uncover and heal from their own hidden trauma. Healing empowers good teachers to become exceptional teachers!

My third book, Broken Rungs Yet I Climbed is a riveting narrative of my personal story of healing the hurt from emotional trauma. This book is a memoir, filled with indispensable messages of strength and healing power to overcome adversities! It is designed to heal emotional wounds, inspire hope, and encourage readers that they can rise above potential life crippling trauma events and live the life that they were destined to live.

I add community value by serving my church, Brown Missionary Baptist under the leadership of Pastor Dr. Bartholomew Orr, as a member of the Mothers Board, as an adult Sunday school teacher, by providing individual mentoring and emotional wellness consultations upon request from the Senior Pastor. I write a monthly Inspirational Article for the church Mother’s Board, serve as mentor on a weekly Zoom Marriage Ministry, and speak at various community workshops and conferences. I serve as Armor Bearer to Miss Kayla Padgett, CEO and Founder of Finding My Way Radio Networks USA/World, am a member of Finding My Way Radio Networks USA/World Prayer and Advisory Board, and host Healing the Hurt a global radio show produced by Kayla Padgett FMW.

I am married to Elder Norris Patton. We have been blessed with two beautiful daughters, five minus one wonderful grandchildren, and one delightful great-grandson!

My foundational Scripture is Romans 8:28 NKJV: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”
