Welcome to the Village

Proverbs 27:17 states that “as iron sharpen iron, so one person sharpens another”. Last year it was truly revealed to me that now more than ever, we need each other… because life as a woman, well…in general, is hard. We all go through things in life- that most likely someone else has experienced but yet we tend to feel like we are the only one. Here’s the good news… we are not here to “go at it alone”- we have each other. The beauty of God is that He has this way of connecting people- at just the right time, He’s good like that! Okay- so I know y’all are probably like… who are you again and what is this about? I am Sharrell- a Midwest girl living in the Southwest with a passion to write and to connect people! I love to write but struggle to find the time- so a year ago I made a promise to myself and the Lord that I would focus a little more on my passion, my secret weapon and use it for good…so here I am- talking to y’all.

A year ago, I created “Because it Takes a Village”- a newsletter I sent out to a select few women in my life sharing my own test/testimonies in hopes to either encourage them to share with other women they felt could use the encouragement and also to encourage them to share their test/testimony. I am led to believe that it is time to take it a step further and grow this community of encouragement. Because it takes a village... Welcome to the Village.
