Writer Biography - HANNAH RATNAM, Shelly Paino

I am a fourth-generation Christian born and raised in Pakistan by my prayer warrior mother whose unwavering faith was an inspiration to me and my six siblings. After facing persecution and an increasingly dangerous political climate, she encouraged us to leave the country any way we could. So I worked hard to obtain an MBA degree and with God’s guidance, secured a job in Dubai where I met and married my husband Ratnam and had a daughter named Angelica. God then opened a door so that we could emigrate to Canada where we live today.

Though I have been hearing from God in dreams since the age of nine, it was not until after I lost my beloved mother and after I arrived in Canada that I rededicated my life to God and received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Today I spend many hours a day in prayer to God and receive many dreams and visions from Him. As a result I am able to be a blessing to others by praying for them at the right time when they might not even be aware that they need prayer. I have also received miraculous healings from my own major health problems and for my family as well.

Inspired by the many miracles I have experienced, my goal has become to share God’s voice that I have heard with others through film and any other medium that God can use. I hope to use my stories to inspire others to have a more profound relationship with God and to experience more fully His presence the way I have been privileged to do.

I have also been overcome with love and compassion for the many Christians still suffering in my native country of Pakistan and wish to raise funds to help them through U R the Inspiration Foundation.
