SHARON GARLOCK SPIEGEL loved writing even as a young girl. She often wrote stories and poetry — a skill she inherited from her grandmother, Jessie May Garlock. Today, the Assembly of God minister, school administrator and self-described “Missouri Yankee” keeps busy pastoring, teaching, and being a wife, mother, and grandmother. Still, one of her favorite activities is writing with purpose, sharing things that bless others. She and Roger, her husband of nearly fifty years, live in western Missouri and have three children and fourteen grandchildren.
“Spiegel’s openness in sharing her family’s troubled history will leave you breathless at the depravity of human nature and the powerful work of Divine intervention.” – Dr. George O. Wood, General Superintendent, Assemblies of God, USA.
“I knew the first time I met Sharon, some seventeen years ago, there was something extra special – a solid foundation and unwavering confidence in God and His Word. Now I know the history behind this blessed family.” – Randy Brooks, actor/musician
