My name is Sharon Virkler. I’m “yet-to-be married”, an RN by profession and living back “home” in northern New Jersey after a 30 year stint in South Florida. Faith excites me – talking about faith, living by faith, writing about faith. I wrote a book a while back titled, “Anticipatience – A New Word of Hope for Single Women“. It was published again in Spanish under the title “El arte de esperar sin desesperar“. It was hard to translate the word “anticipatience” into another language, but they tell me it means “the art of hoping without despair”. I like that!
Many people who read the book told me that the principles of Anticipatience were ones that could be applied to many life situations, not just the specific issues of the single woman. And that’s why this blog was born – I wanted to share the lessons God continues to show me in “the waiting”. All of us are waiting for something.
Me? I love reading non-fiction books that make me think, getting up to watch the sunrise, road trips, spending time with the greatest family in the world, trying out new recipes on willing friends, good coffee and laughing at the most inconsequential things.
And I have no doubt that God has an amazing plan for my life.
