As a result of working with Sheila Cohen, clients are able to walk confidently into their future, effectively use any negative hinderances from the past to fuel creativity to accomplish goals and create footprints of success along the way. Her personal breakthrough came when she determined within herself to make a mind-changing decision to no longer be bound by past physical, mental and emotional scars left from abandonment, rape, low self-esteem, bullying, and rejection; she began using everyday affirmations and accountability exercises to condition her mind to think limitless in her untapped, God-given abilities. Her story of thriving in victory against the odds and identifying as a victim of society began after growing up rebellious until one night in the 'grown up' hours, when a small whisper within her spoke to her spirit while she was deep in sin trying to forget the pain. That unforgettable night, she cried herself to sleep in a drunken stupor, but woke up with an unusual calmness after the whisper, that she unknowingly began to be inspired to work towards changing her lifestyle from the nightclub action to learning about a saving grace from above. Every hurt, pain, bitterness and anger was now becoming the catalyst that would be the muscle behind the work on brightening a light that always dimly shone within her, in her darkest moments.
Eventually, she found God, love and her true purpose in Ministry, and later founded with intention and declaration, a movement called Sisters Walking In Faith Together. Women of any age or background can find strength and encouragement on an online presence called SWIFT On The Move that serves in outreach ministry. This initiative is committed to walking with women young and seasoned, and to teach them how to see themselves as qualified for a victorious living not only in spite of, but because of their negative experiences and survival; and to realize that what could not destroy you, has ultimately and truly made you undeniably stronger on purpose-for purpose!
