Bio of Writer – Sharon Smith
Experienced her first encounter with God in 1962 at the age of seven in Harlem, New York’s Lincoln Projects, when she was crouched in the corner of a hall closet. Her heart beating as if it was going to come out of her chest, the loud knocking at her front door grew more forceful. As her mother approached the door to see who was there, Sharon heard the voice of the Lord softly say, “Don’t be afraid, it’s your father.” A relaxed feeling came over her small body, as her mother opened the door to her alcoholic, abusive father and the police.
Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Sharon was educated in the New York City public school system. She graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School, received her Bachelor’s Degree in Corporate Training from Herbert H. Lehman College, and a Master’s Degree in Business Education from New York University.
Suffering through the indignities of intra-racial prejudices, fights, poverty and an alcoholic parent, God answered her prayers through life’s challenges. No matter what the problem is, God is right in the midst of it all.
There is NOTHING too hard for God. Be encouraged, “For the Lord IS good, His mercy is everlasting and His truth endureth through ALL generations. – Psalm 100:5
