Ultimate Makeover – Becoming Spiritually Beautiful in Christ
Women love the idea of a day at the spa to be pampered and made-over from head to toe. In this session, Sharon takes us to God's spa for the Ultimate Makeover. Many women struggle with feelings of inferiority, insecurity, and inadequacy. However, when we discover who we are, what we have, and where we are in Christ, God transforms us into the confident women He intended all along. Women learn how to see them selves as God sees them, change the way they think, and experience the only makeover with lasting results. This topic is a perfect for retreats with multiple sessions.


Dreams of a Woman – God's Plan for Fulfilling Your Dreams
The desires have been there for as long as we can remember; to be beautiful, to be a bride, to be a mother, to be a cherished daughter, and to have a best friend. But for many, life took a different turn. In this session, Sharon challenges women to dust off their hopes and dare to dream again – through God's eyes. She shares stories of both biblical and contemporary dreamer-heroines, observations about how and when God restores dreams, and a checklist for evaluating desires from a godly standpoint. Women realize that God still has dreams for their lives and has not forgotten them.

Some of God's most memorable messages were not delivered while men and women were away on a spiritual retreat but right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Like wise, God speaks to us in our everyday lives. The question is – will we listen? In this session, Sharon takes a fun, tender look at how to recognize some of the wonderful and unexpected ways God reaches out to us with His love and presence.

Your Scars are Beautiful to God
Like the spine of a good book, scars, by their very nature imply there's a story to tell. While some are on the surface, most are hidden in deep recesses of the soul. But like buried treasure, God's longs for us to unearth those jewels, come out of hiding, and invest those scars in the lives of others. Just as the disciples recognized the resurrected Jesus when they saw His scars, others will recognize the Healer Jesus when we show them ours. In this session, Sharon takes us on a journey to discovering peace and purpose in the pain of our past by rejecting the lie of disqualification, resisting the fear of rejection, and releasing the power of our own personal stories. Learn to see your scars through God's eyes - your scars are beautiful to God.

The Power of a Woman's Words
The words we speak can make the difference between someone finishing well or collapsing along the way. James 3 tells us words even have the power to change the entire course of a life. In this session, Sharon shares how giving the gift of encouraging words can build confidence in a child's heart, pump courage in a husband's life, fan into flames the dying embers of a friend's smoldering dreams, cheer the Body of Christ to run the great race with endurance and draw a lost world to Christ.


Holiday Seminar
Celebrating a Christ-centered Christmas
Much has changed since the God of the universe decorated the night sky with the star of Bethlehem and directed the choir of angels announcing Christ's birth over 2000 years ago. But we don't have to let commercialism rule in our hearts and homes. In this session, Sharon shares practical and inspirational ways, from A-Z, on how to keep Christ the focus of the holiday season. This session comes equipped with a “show and tell” as Sharon shows actual Christmas items from her book and demonstrates how to create a Christ-centered Christmas atmosphere for their own home.
