My name is Sheri Powell and I am the founder of Pausing With God Ministries. I wanted to pause for a moment and thank each of you in advance for your patience while our website is getting a face-lift.

We are working hard to create a 2.0 experience on the new site. PWG as you know is a non-profit organization that is devoted to assist women in making a difference in their lives, family and community. Our mission is to enrich, encourage and hopefully educate women in every stage of their lives. Women are able to address their challenges and what was once considered a weakness is turned into strength to go on and make an impact in their home, community that they live in.

So be on the look out for the new site and thanks again for your patience.


Believe it or Not (A Testimonial)

Dear Sheri,

Hello my name is Rita Vienne. I have quite a testimony to share with you. Your name was given to me by the Holy Spirit. You see I have been struggling very much with menopause, in fact everything that could possibly happen to a woman during menopause has happened to me!

So one night approximately three weeks ago before I went to bed, I truly cried out to God. I haven’t had much sleep due to night sweats. Of course my emotions have been on a roller coaster as well.  As I was waking up the very next morning, I heard the Lords’ voice say your name “Sheri Powell”, three times ever so softly. I said, “Ok Lord is this someone that I need to intercede and pray for or is this person for me?”

I got out of bed and felt compelled to look on the internet to see who Sheri Powell was.  I even spelled your name right!  So I asked the Lord, is she a missionary, a reverend, a Christian author?  And lo and behold it did not take me long to find you.  I read your brief autobiography.  I said, Oh Lord this woman sounds so much like me and my life!  We have such similar passions.  I then saw on “Pausing With God”, as I read the description of the book I was shocked, my mouth dropped to my knees.


Thank You (A Testimonial)

Dear PWG, I want to say thank you. Things have been tough and  I was losing my excitement. In the past I would just give up.  Because of the encouragement that I received from you and another lady, I am able to keep it moving. Thank you so much for what you do! (name withheld)
