Amazing Grace

I hung up my phone in silence. What an incredible conversation I had just had, the first with this person and the first of many more to come. I had not really known what I was getting into except that I knew I wanted to hear her story. That is where it started.

‘I have had cancer six times…’ ‘I am not a victim…’ ‘I am a victor…’ My guest on the phone, her first name is Sharon, is definitely a victor! In her life that has been marked with cancer, she refused to give up. She now speaks all across the country giving hugs, spreading hope, sharing information. People wait in line for hours to receive her hugs, her handshakes, her smiles. Did she learn how to do this overnight? No. She was taught by that sternest of teachers there is – Life. Is that cliche? No. It is what we all do, every day. Her teacher had a bigger ruler, however.

On our way to leadership we are learning our lessons, whether they be about life in general, having fun with our children, baking cookies, and cakes, and suddenly serious health issues, leading into financial traumas can come in to teach; we are the granite that needs to be chiseled into something more beautiful. We can only learn enough for one day at a time and somehow years pass. Hopefully, my lessons will be as beautifully lived, as excellently sculpted, as Sharon’s, full of amazing grace.

I AM a wife, mom and a grandmom who lives in Minnesota, USA. I love God, my family, and, unexpected as it may be, I love business. I can see marketing in everything. My children would not be able to tell you how many times I have told them, "Honey, that is so cool! Sell those, you'll make a million!" God, family and business all intertwine for me. One of these factors would not be able to be taken out and still explain, partially, who I am. I am still so much more, just like everyone else is. We are the sum of many parts, many interests, but we are also the sum of many, many prayers, prayed by ourselves, parents, grandparents, relatives, friends, children, grandchildren and on and on and thankfully, on. My business? I hold out my hands, offering gold to everyone. What kind? I am an Independent Reliv Distributor for Reliv International, based out of Chesterfield, Missouri. It is a company that offers excellence of health with it's nutritional supplements, being the home of epigenetic nutrition. With that offer comes the extension of service to you, the opportunity of making a difference in your financial picture, of making such dear friendships, and discovering lifestyles with all kinds of possibilities.The words Reliv, lunasin and epigenetics are going to be household words, and soon. They are a few golden nuggets that I love to share with everyone. Another one, brand new, is Fit3. As with God and family, I serve in business.

Thank you Jane Anderson for your wonderful comment. Sharon, now my friend, was so easy to write about! She really touched my heart and soul. Thank you again!

Dawn Hess

That was beautiful testimony. Thank you.

Chris Ciccone

Thank you Dawn Hess for your comment! Sharon’s testimony is a huge light for everyone who may be suffering, or watching loved ones suffer without knowing the why of it all. Perhaps they, too, will be sharing hope, love, information in the future to those who need it.

In our lives here on earth, we will experience joy, suffering, pain, laughter, feeling of loneliness. Mother Teresa said that the greatest poverty is not those on the streets of Calcutta, but those within our own homes, those we past on the streets, who have no one who cares. You are a light to many. Thank you

Chris Ciccone

Thank you for your beautiful comment. Mother Teresa was so right about a lot of things, was she not? Have a wonderful day!
