Sharen Rooks authored What Happens When God Moves (ISBN 9781420830125) – a truly inspirational story about the life of a young woman and the many trials and tribulations she experiences over a decade. Her story includes an incident of incest which results in pregnancy, the death of a child, brief incarceration, witnessing a shooting, almost becoming homeless, and losing her job. Through the grace of God, these adversities develop this young entrepreneur into a very successful businesswoman, motivational speaker, consultant, singer, actor, and author.
