“Conversations With God” is Sharon’s fourth publication.
Sometimes we babble at God, and sometimes He seems to answer us. Usually the answer we think we hear is exactly the words we needed at the time. Conversations with God is an attempt to discuss thoughts such as how He wants us to change, or about our choices while we are in His presence, or how He wants us to help others. But God always desires that we give Him our thanks and praises.
Sharon has a natural talent for writing about the every day…happenings of magnitude, small joys and sorrows as well as the grandeur of nature. Always underlying is the ever-loving presence of God expressed throughout her works, which makes them rich and powerful, yet threaded with comfort & hope.
Inspired by her muse, we often can find her writing in the local McDonalds where the slice of life she writes about interacts.
