When You Long for Something More

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been absent for a few weeks. I’ve been hunkered down working on a new writing project. Would you like a sneak peek?  Here you go.  I was alone, or least I felt that way. Women huddled in happy clusters chatting about first one thing and then the… Read More

Hang On! God’s Got This!

  Oh friend, I don’t know what you are going through today. But I do know this: God is not surprised or worried. He’s got this. I’ll admit, I’ve had quite a month. For starters, someone created a fake Facebook page using my name, my pictures and my identity. If I didn’t know better, I’d… Read More

He Loves Me!

I stood in a circle with a group of ladies to pray before heading to the podium to speak. They had been planning and preparing for about a year, and now the Christmas event was finally here. As we held hands in a circle of intercession, one of the women said, “This morning as I was sitting in the church praying for the event, God showed me that Sharon is very valuable to Him.” At that moment I began to weep…Read more

DEATH, ROOMMATES, & A RANDOM CAT

One of the new features of my Blog is that I will have Guest Bloggers post from time to time. This will usually be when I’ve read something that stirs my heart, and want to share it with you. That’s what I’m doing today. My brother left his wife and three teenage kids several years… Read More
