Rosanna Cerezo Sharps is a Pastor's wife who loves God's children of all ages and exudes compassion for the struggles they face daily in their lives. Realizing there is nothing new under the sun, she continues to discover the ability to overcome many of life's trials through the application of God's Word. Sometimes when vicariously experiencing someone else's struggles as they strive to maintain their course on the narrow path, it can help one to understand their own sense of direction. With this in mind, the author prayerfully crafted Golden Harvest, a historic fictional story that wraps itself with warmth and affection around the parables in the Bible to help enlighten the pathway of God's people.
Rosanna studied Psychology at Southwestern College, and theology at Calvary Chapel Bible College. She has taught Bible studies for women, youth, and grade school children for over 10 years. They have one musically gifted son whom she home schooled from first grade through high school. Her passion is studying God's Word, praying, loving her family, having fellowship with other Believers, singing worship songs, and traveling to places and enjoying God's creation. When there is spare time, she enjoys settling into a cozy chair and crocheting or knitting.
New Release - Golden Harvest
Jonathan and Mary Sawyer have both been given direction from God to move their family from the war torn town of Perryville, Kentucky in 1864 to their new land of promise... Snelling, California. But the land of promise is not without its giant encounters for the family, especially for their children who are coming of age. It came in the form of disappointing ambitions, uncontrollable temptations, hidden intentions, bad discernment and a desire to follow a calling. Jonathan and Mary discover their life assimilating the Parable of the Sower. The era occurs in the late 1800s, yet the trials are as timeless as the Parable itself. Although the family is fictitious, their life situations are not and the reader will find themselves relating to the struggles and the victories the family encounters. In addition to the main characters are actual people, places and situations that occurred in California's frontier towns such as Jamestown, Chinese Camp, Coulterville, Mariposa, Rio Vista and of course Snelling. The names of the actual people have been slightly changed and the story is based upon historical fact. This story will open the eyes of the reader to the difficulties that can easily occur in life and how faith in an almighty and all-knowing God will take these difficulties and produce a golden harvest.
