What Others Are Saying
"As a Christian I had heard a lot about being beautiful on the inside yet Shari brought the need for the inside and outside beauty together in a way I had never heard before. Her unique ability to help us see ourselves as we really are is done in a way that helps women be comfortable with changing some things without feeling threatened or put down. Shari's sense of humor and deep compassion for sharing Christ with others draws them to Him.
As a pastor's wife, I knew I wanted to share Shari and her message with the women at our church. As event coordinator I needed a speaker and Shari said "yes"! I began to tell our women and girls about our theme and the response was overwhelming. I had hit a chord with the ladies touching a need in their lives I didn't even know existed!
When Shari came and shared her "What Not To Wear" session with us we had so much fun yet learned so much. It was really a time of bonding for our women. For months afterwards I would hear the women talking about the beauty tips Shari had shared and I also saw the results in many of their lives. Their confidence about themselves had increased in a God-honoring way.
Shari helped us so much that we wanted to share her message with our community. That September, we hosted a "Modest Is Hottest" Fashion Show for teens. We tripled our former attendance in May with a whole new audience. Once again Shari shared "What Not To Wear" and talked to the girls and their mothers about the need for modesty in our world today. She also gave her awesome testimony of how God had changed her life and brought her out of the beauty and fashion industry into His work to draw others to Him.
I am so glad Shari wrote her ideas down in her "If Clothes Could Talk" book. I could not possibly remember everything she said but now I can refer to her written words all the time! It helps me have a plan and not flounder when it comes to my wardrobe and saves me money too since I don't buy things now that don't work for me or that I don't really need. This is a message all women can identify with in today's economy! I highly recommend her much needed ministry and words to and for the world of Christian women and beyond."
