Author Biography

Born in Washington, DC a long, long time ago, I grew up on S street, and later relocated with my family to Prince George's County, Maryland.After graduating from Frostburg Teachers College ( now Frostburg University), I enjoyed a delightful career as a middle and high school English teacher, also doing a brief stint teaching English 101 at the community college. During that time, I married and had three sons. After the death of my best friend and husband, God blessed me with a second man in my life, and new adventures began.
Together we raised and showed alpacas, eventually selling the farm and moving here to shabbily arrogant Pawleys Island, SC. Here the sea, surf and sand conspired to bring my writing talent to light, with God's blessing and intervention. Hopefully, here, the story will continue!

Reviewed by Christian Sia for Readers' Favorite

“Thy will be done. It is not for us to question why or to know the answer. As Christians we are asked to accept His will, to give Him our love, to thank and praise Him, and to believe in His wisdom, thus strengthening our faith, even in troubled times.”

My Journey, His Plan by Sharon Shymansky Roberts is an inspirational book composed of short stories, reflections, and catchy phrases that illustrate the author’s unshakable faith in God. It can be read as an autobiography of faith, an author’s way of looking through her life’s journey and seeing God’s presence and grace. This slim book is a powerful testimony of God’s unconditional love and mercy, a sacred presence that can be seen only with the eyes of faith. It invites readers to acknowledge God’s role in the events of their lives and to develop a strong faith in His Providence. These pages will inspire readers to embrace the path of faith, to find peace in trying moments, to keep walking even when they feel weary because God is present in every moment of their lives.

My Journey, His Plan is a gem, a wonderful gift to be received with humility and faith. It is always interesting to know how God works in the lives of others, and reading Sharon Shymansky Roberts’ journey of faith will be inspiring to many. Roberts writes in a simple style and her voice is warm and reassuring. One of the beautiful things about this book is that it shows the face of the Divine in the ordinariness of life. The author doesn’t claim to have the gift of visions or any other spectacular gift, but she shares a gift that many readers will immediately identify with: the ability to see God in the simple joys of life, the struggles, the trials, and the small triumphs of every day. This book introduces a new way of looking at life – a journey with God! Or, is it God’s journey in us?

My Journey, His Plan is inspirational, encouraging and thought-provoking. Thank you for sharing your story, your testimony. It touched me in a very special way as I was able to identify with your spiritual walk and your spiritual growth. I have shared your faith walk with others who are struggling. Your book is blessing others.

Sensitive and Inspiring Book! April 3, 2016
All of us are on a journey in this life and those of us who are Christians have viewed God's lead in our journey through the valleys and mountaintops. Sharon's book is "everyman's" book. Her writing style is one of being with a best friend who is unafraid to bare her soul to you. We can relate to her journey because some of what she has experienced, we too have experienced. I recommend this book not only as a great...Read More

I have just finished reading this book a second time. There will probably be a third, and then some after that. Sharon writes so clearly and beautifully about the events of her life that you feel that you were there when they happened. (Although I have never raised alpacas, I wanted to buy some after reading her story about them!) Sharon also deals sensitively and compassionately with the tough issues of life and the questions...Read More

Reading Her Journey Blesses us!
My Journey-His Plan is an honest accounting of incidents in the life of Sharon Roberts. She gives us little interjections of humor along the way, but it is a book that offers encouragement. Her writing style brings the reader by her side in each story and makes it clear that, as Christians, we are not exempt from difficulties in life; however, it is our faith in Christ that gets us through the storm and guides us to a brighter...Read More

God does not use speaker ID
Enjoyed this read, immensely. If you feel God is not watching over you and not listening to your prayers, you need to read this book. There was one phrase the author used which I particularly liked and I know to be true..."God does not use speaker ID." So when God does speak to you or call on you, you really have to be listening. So glad I read this book and hope to see more from this author.

Have you ever wondered if God is with you? Is he walking with you on your journey?If you read Sharon's book you will find the answer. Sharon is an inspirational writer and she shares her wonderful, sometimes humorous, sometimes tearful stories with all of us. We are the lucky ones. Walk with her on her journey and if we, the readers, are lucky we will be able to walk with her many more times.

Beautiful and moving
Beautiful and moving account of Sharon's life journey and spiritual walk with the Lord. Life is rarely without its challenges, and Sharon's faith-based journey has only resulted in a deeper and more trusting walk with God. Perhaps that's what our lives are all and obey.....easier said than done, but with a life-long, faith-filled commitment, I believe it does become easier as time marches on.

A great read !
I absolutely loved this book. Many times life gets 'challenging', and it's difficult to understand the lesson at hand. I admire the faith and trust that Sharon so beautifully shares. These are tender moments of a devoted wife loving her husband until his very last breath.
And then Cory, her amazing son. I felt her panic, and then gratitude as prayers were offered and anwered.
I will treasure this book, we share a few...Read More

Touched my heart and soul.
I am not an avid book reader, and I can count on one hand how many books I have read from cover to cover, and this one I have read twice! I felt like the author and I had a mirrored life, as many of the things she wrote about, could have been a story about my life too. The chapter about her late husband, David touched my heart, as I too lost a dear Mother years ago to cancer, however, at the end it was just the same as she...Read More
