Summer Breeze

Two hundred women were present at our Church event called Summer Breeze that featured inspirational speaker,">Sheri Rose Shepherd . Her joy for the Lord, humorous heart-warming stories mixed with truth and transparency renews our Faith by reminding us how much we are truly loved and adored by our Father in heaven. Basically put, she helps women be more comfortable with themselves and more open about who they are in Christ. She wants women to stand up and be the warrior God called them to be for His kingdom.

Being part of the Women’s Ministry has offered opportunity to step out of my comfort zone. After Sheri spoke, I gave our Ladies Getaway a plug and although nervous, God seemed to pull me through one word at a time. The night was a huge success and after her 45-minute talk, we served iced tea, fruit and cookies while Sheri sold and signed her many books. The night was a huge success and left me encouraged to seek God’s will and direction for my life. Gaining FREEDOM was her message and my only regret is not taking notes! If you don’t know who this amazing speaker, author and woman is fill you in.

Sheri Rose is a woman who can relate to almost any woman’s battle. This former Mrs. United States grew up in a dysfunctional home and was severely overweight as a teen. As a young woman, she battled depression and an eating disorder. She understands the pain that comes from a broken home and she knows what it means to fight for freedom from your past. In spite of an English teacher telling her she was “born to lose” and a learning disorder—Dyslexia—Sheri Rose has (in God’s strength) become a Best Selling Author, with more than One Million books sold, and her latest book, won the 2010 Retailers Choice Non-Fiction Book of the Year.
I’ve had her book “His Princess Love Letters” for years and open it up when I am feeling low or need a reminder of how much God loves me. I bought other books last night, “Life is not a Dress Rehearsal” and “Preparing him for the other woman ~ A Mother’s Guide to Raising her Son to Love a Wife and Lead a Family.”  After my unicycle ride tonight, I look forward to snuggling into bed and starting a new book.
Thank you Sheri Rose!

I'm visiting from Debby's blog. Your name caught my eye because my two younger brothers both rode unicycles. I'm not sure if they still do. :)

I'll bet you'll never have balance problems!

How wonderful to see so many women seeking guidance and the hope of improvement. I had not heard of her. I'll have to go check her out.

Thank you for the comment on my blog. Funny we are both Red but still find it difficult to speak in front of large crowds. No one believes me when I tell them that about me. lol
