Sharone D. Thomas, is the founder of No Longer Powerless, a movement created to help woman and girls heal from LOVE deficits, embrace their inner POWER and defeat the orphan spirit. She is dedicated to introducing the broken-hearted to the one who heals broken hearts (Jesus Christ).

 

Sharone endured a lot of pain and misfortune growing up, but she has remained resilient in the face of adversity, and she is passionate about inspiring others to do the same. Her message is for those who have been rejected, physically and mentally orphaned. She is building a platform that will teach them to tap into the power God has given them and activate that power in every area of their lives. Sharone grew up with an orphan spirit because she had a love deficit that left her feeling rejected, broken hearted and powerless. The tragic death of her father and the struggles of her mother, threatened to keep her from reaching her full potential, but she refused to let it. With faith and determination she fought to be healed and walk in purpose. Through the years, Sharone has learned that her path and pain was not about her but about the many women like her who need to be delivered from what had her bound for so many years. She made a decision to let go of anger and take back the power that God has given her. She wants people to know that they are not powerless by life's circumstances, but instead powerful beyond measure. Sharone is a mom, author and visionary who is excited about fully walking in her purpose knowing that she has been called for such a time as this. She believes that once you tap into the POWER God has given you, the possibilities are endless.
