Hi, have you met Sharon?
My name is Sharon, and I’ve been married to Brett so happily for 29 years, I work as an education support staffer at a special development school in Bendigo, and I have three beautiful daughters.”
What do you do for fun?
I love music and movies, and bootscooting! I love country music, and have seen the Dixie Chicks live and have seen Keith Urban live three times. I have a wall of movies if anyone wants to borrow one.

Overcomer, by Mendica and Trust in You, by Laura Daigle
How has Jesus changed your life, or is changing your life.
I’ve grown up trusting in Jesus, so been a Christian a long time after being raised in a Christian home with beautiful Christian parents. Of late, back in 2016 we lost our middle daughter to suicide, and that really ended up being something that God used in my life.
I was really encouraged to seek out a church, I’d been looking but hadn’t found one anywhere that I was comfortable with. And then I saw the Reforming sign on the Bendigo South East College and thought, “yeah, I’ll try that.” But the day I went to go along, the sign was gone! So I googled it, and Reforming had moved to the Quarry Hill Hall at that time.
On the website I noticed you had the subject for the sermon, and it was “Where is God in your suffering and grief?” This was almost a year after Stacey’s anniversary, so I thought “wow, I better go to that…” And I’ve been coming ever since. I’ve got to say that my faith is stronger now than it ever was.
What’s your favourite Bible verse?
Romans 8:28, And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
