“But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?” And God said, “I will be with you…”
~ Exodus 3:11-12a
When God is with us, we are always enough. We are as strong as we need to be; braver than we think; and loved more than we could ever imagine. God never promised us that life would be perfect, or that we wouldn’t face trials and tribulations. He did promise us that He would always be with us. In fact, accepting Jesus as our Savior allows the Holy Spirit to live within us. The Holy Spirit continues to lead me day after day strengthening my beliefs and my relationship with God. I am able to recognize His Signs and hear his soft voice reinforcing my beliefs that I am enough. I am strong enough, and I am brave enough to face whatever life throws my way because I know God is always with me!
“Do you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” ~ 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
This could be just the sign you need. This book itself was a Sign from God. We all receive signs from God differently. He speaks to us differently as well. Some may receive hearts, crosses, feathers, pennies, dimes, and some even hear his soft voice in their head. This book includes many true testimonies and signs from God and loved ones and might just be the sign you need today to know you are not alone.
About the book:
Listening to God’s soft quiet voice has led this mother and daughter team on an ultimate journey of documenting ‘Signs from God’ and sharing the true testimony of a miraculous healing Arlene experienced after suffering five long years with a nervous breakdown. It is a story of faith that speaks so profoundly you will clearly recognize that God is in control. He led Sharon on the journey of documenting the signs from God she and her mother have personally received. While documenting these signs, that inner voice was relentless. Sharon felt the nudge from God to reach out to their community as well in hopes of receiving signs from others that may have had similar experiences. Without hesitation she composed her Facebook post. Once the message was out there for all to see, stories immediately started flowing that were willingly shared on the day God spoke to her. It was then that she and her mother sat back, took a deep breath, and said, “The rest is up to you, God.”
Excerpt from Signs from God:
“God’s presence has always been a part of my life. Sometimes it’s stronger than others, sometimes I have periods of doubt. When I was an adolescent, my mother battled with a nervous breakdown for nearly five years. She was in and out of hospitals and experienced so much pain and torment that I could not help but wonder why. Why would God put her through such a traumatic experience? She was a good person, a great mother, a loyal friend that would do anything for anyone . . . I could go on and on, so why her? She firmly believed in God, yet five long years passed before her miraculous healing took place.”
“I have greatly enjoyed reading ‘Signs From God’ by Sharon Shabinaw and Arlene Garrett. It has definitely blessed me with peace and reassurance that God is definitely real just as I have always believed and known. I too have had my personal experiences with God and can relate to many of the real life experiences that so many individuals share in this book. I recommend this book for all those that are tempted to think that God does not hear their prayers and doesn’t listen to prayers anymore. God always listens to prayers and he always answers the prayers of those that love him truly and have a sincere heart. Sometimes he may not answer when we want or give us exactly what we want and he has his perfect reasons. Everything is for our own good. God bless you Sharon and Arlene for writing such an inspiring book and praising God as well as blessing others with the experiences shared in this book!”
“I just finished reading the book “Signs from GOD” and what a fantastic read!! I laughed and cried, the stories of GOD’s amazing work and the signs of comfort he gives each of us was amazing! You won’t want to put it down!!” Sandy L. from Sykesville MD
6 years ago, life was pretty darn stressful. I was married and struggling with so many emotions; dealing with health issues in the family; and so much stress from my job. That stress built, exploded, and then changed my life in so many ways.
Ever since then I’ve been an open book and not afraid to be vulnerable. In fact, I’ve written two books about the many experiences I’ve had (Signs from God; Break Down Your Walls) that are available on Amazon. Search them, and my name, and they will show up. My dream in life is to help as many people as I can deal with their stress.
After my heart attack in 2016, that’s where my life started to change big time. I learned how to deal with my stress. It was during my recovery period when I was introduced to Young Living essential oils and started diffusing Stress Away and rolling on Peace and Calming. I literally could feel the stress melting off my shoulders. But, I must say, with everything I had been through, that wasn’t enough. I needed to talk things out with a therapist, and I found someone who truly got me. She helped me grow stronger by coming to terms with who I am and what I needed in my life. I share alot of that in my second book, Break Down Your Walls.
As those sessions progressed, I gravitated to all of the emotional oils that Young Living had to offer and O.M.G. were they helping me to release the negative feelings, stay grounded to my God, feel gratitude for what I did have, to be hopeful for my future, and have the courage and confidence to move forward knowing that I am enough.
As the years progressed, I built so many strong life-lasting friendships that have been there for me through all of the changes that took place. Those friendships helped me cope with the struggles I faced during all the moves, separation, divorce, and all the tears. As I began standing on my own and planning for single life, I found my future had unlimited possibilities. I was amazed at finding new love and starting a whole other life. Then moving to Georgia and leaving my family behind, especially after Brian’s terrible accident. Change and separation is hard, and again I had my essential oils and everything I had learned to help get me through.
Today, I am living my best life ever! I’m living in Georgia, right around the corner from my mother – literally a five minute walk! Our new home is everything I had ever wanted in a home, and I get to work remote. My office is across the hall from the man of my dreams and his own office, where he gets to work remote. God had a plan and it’s all coming together. The stress in my life is at a minimum now. My children are all doing well and I’m looking forward to a trip back home the end of the month! I’m now building a new community of Oily Believers here in Georgia and building even more friendships that I know will continue to blossom and grow over the years to come.
When I look back at everything I have learned about toxic living and how much I have grown and improved my health and well-being, it amazes me. Young Living has taken me to Conventions, to their Lavender Farm in Utah, to weekend retreats, workshops, happy hours, make-n-takes, and many team building events and personal growth opportunities. I’ve learned to recognize my triggers, calm my stress, and support every system in my body with these precious bottles of oils that God gave us! Plus, I’ve been able to build a business, my own business! I’ve been able to build a bank account that allows me to pay for all of my oils and products through the business and so much more. I can’t say I’ve quickly grown my business, because life does get in the way sometimes and I’ve had some challenging years.
The past year has been rough for many people and businesses as a result of the distance forced upon us. Change can be hard, and as we begin to move forward again, I am so excited over the changes that Young Living is making. Their new website and leadership are proving to be just what we all needed and I feel like it is all coming together at just the perfect time and I’m so excited to see where this next year takes us.
As the momentum is picking back up and Fall is upon us. It’s like the perfect storm, and now more than ever, we need to gear up and get ready to arm ourselves and our wellness. So, if you are interested in hearing more about this journey I’ve been on; or the oils I’ve been using to help manage my stress and wellness over the years; or shoot, want some guidance in building your own wellness business, I’m here for you! I’m not going anywhere. I love this business and the opportunity it has provided me with and I can’t wait to see just how far it takes me into early retirement with residual income I can count on for the rest of my life and my children’s lives! After all, that’s what us parents want – to always provide a future for our children!
Thought you might like to take a stroll down memory lane with me….and, sorry, but because I spoke about the business I have to share the income disclosure…. But, it’s definitely worth taking a look at it! I’m sure glad I did. Sharing is easy when you love the product!
