What Clients Have Said

Shareece Hunter is a great mentor. Ever since I joined my church, she’s been someone I could talk to. When she first invited me to our weekly virtual calls I was surprised because most people at the church don’t take their interest in the teens to that extent. People at the church saw me as a very timid and fearful. As the calls continued, she began to encourage and push me into the person she knew I could be. Shareece helped me overcome the fear of the enemy. Everything I did or said I would doubt it or overthink it. She had told me that she was once like that and if I didn’t shake it off now it would overtake me as an adult. With weeks of calls Shareece has helped mold me into the confident young lady that I am today.

I can definitely say that working with Minister Shareece Hunter was such a blessing. She has inspired me, encouraged me, prayed over me, and touched me with her powerful words. We have discussed many things but the number one thing that we have discussed is overcoming fear. As she says it herself fear is of the enemy and should not have any control of our hearts, minds, or soul. Fear is a very big topic that Minister Shareece has accomplished and can really touch people in her words of overcoming it. Growing up I have always been afraid to take risks or even to talk to other individuals about any problem that goes through my mind. In the household that I was raised in, I was not allowed to share any of my problems with anyone no matter who they are and that pretty much made me keep every problem that I had bottled up which made everything worse. Because of this in 2012 I was diagnosed with panic disorder. I would always become afraid to speak up for myself and just to speak about anything really. As I got older I was becoming more afraid of life that I let the power of fear control my mind, my heart, and my soul. Because of that in 2016, I was diagnosed with a generalized anxiety disorder and moderate to severe depression (which means that I am suicidal). Still, I would get through life being afraid to do anything. As I got older, I was afraid to speak to people at school, at church, at work, and even sometimes with my roommate. This led for me to start overthinking and making things worst as the years go by. This year 2020, I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder. Would you believe that I am only 24 years old? I soon then realized that the enemy will not win, I will overcome the spirit of fear and that I knew the right person to talk to.
Minister Shareece and I had a conversation after our weekly virtual group call and it definitely blessed me. She started giving me devotionals, different scriptures, and affirmations to work on when it comes to overcoming the spirit of fear. She also shared her story about how she overcame the fear which made me feel a lot better. She told me that what I was going through is normal and that I am never alone. She explained to me that this is what the enemy wants is to steal, kill, and destroy you whether it is physically or mentally. However, when you trust in the word of God and surrender all to him and give 110% of everything from you and to him, well there is no such thing as fear. Minister Shareece gave me beneficial things to do to overcome fear and I have days that I totally want to give up and be afraid, but thanks to Minister Shareece, she has reminded me that because I believe in the power of God, there is no such thing as fear inside of me.

What can I not say good about Minister Shareece? In all the time I’ve known her which has not been more than a year she has helped me grow so much in my walk with Christ and she's helped me so much when it comes to overcoming fear in my life. Ever since I took her on as my mentor and she has accepted me as her mentee it has been nothing but good. In my times of needing help and answers she prayed and listened for God’s voice and relayed the message to me. Even in my times of unknowing, she reminded me God is near and that I have no reason to fear. She’s been used to remind me that yes the journey may get tough sometimes but I'm not alone even though I may feel lonely sometimes. She’s reminded me that all I have to do is call on the name of Jesus and he will show up. She’s been such a blessing to my life. I truly thank God for her. Even in my times of silent pain, she’s listened to the voice of God and sent me some words of confirmation that I'm on the right path. Some words of affirmation that God is here right now right next to me speaking to me that I just have to listen for his voice. Even when I just wasn't feeling myself she paid me enough attention to notice it and immediately pray for me and then send me a song that speaks to my heart. She's added me into the family and accepted me. She's invited me to prayer and gave me the opportunity to pray with her and others. I’m not even sure she knows how much those weekly virtual calls have helped me overcome fear in my life like I promise on everything I love my stomach used to hurt so much getting on those calls because I was so nervous. She pushed me in a loving way and held my hand until I was comfortable. Now I can get on those calls and even stand before others in boldness and confidence. The tips she gave me by addressing my fears helped me to overcome the fear I felt when it came to getting on our weekly calls. She listened to God when he told her to tell me to read specific scriptures and to study them. The scriptures have caused me to walk in my authority and walk and boldness and confidence caused me to let go of all fear. Whenever it tries to come back I know she sends out a prayer for me and then sends me a song or scripture and It encourages me to keep going. With all of my heart, I say thank you, Minster Shareece you have no clue how you have blessed my life. Thank you for constantly overextending yourself to me and treating me like your little brother in Christ. I pray many more blessings for you. Love you and again thank you.

 

I am 19 years old, and I have been influenced by the Lifting Weights Corporation. I have known its founder, Shareece for about 7 or 8 years prior to the establishing of Lifting Weights Co. but I must tell how impactful Lifting Weights has been. So, I was born and raised in the church and I’d be considered by most as the “church-boy “which is one who has taken on the culture of church and exercises it in all parts of their life. Church was the epitome of who I was. I wasn’t like any of the other kids at school, I carried my Bible around everywhere I went, I loved to wear a 3 piece suit all the time, and I was naturally known as the “preach-boy” by everyone around me. I was laughed at, bullied, talked about, and mistreated because of it. The only safe haven I had was church. I went all the time, every time the church doors were opened, I was always there because I truly believe that God was the only route for me.
As I grew older, I experience a lot of changes in my understanding and feeling toward church. When I was little, I believed what I was told but once I can to my own personal understanding of who God was, I saw that those who I once cheered me on and encouraged me to continue to be steadfast in my faith were actually oppressing and suppressing to be nothing more than a color copy of my pastor and all of the other people at my church. I didn’t understand why I was I was being suppressed but then I thought about when the Bible suggested that Joseph was sold by his own. I had fresh revelation of who God was and what he wanted for my life, but those people didn’t want to hear it. So little did I know that I sunk into a state of depression and oppression because of this.
I had been preaching and teaching while in depression and I didn’t even know. Thank God that he sent Lifting Weights to help me through this time of darkness. I felt as if I couldn’t hear God speaking to me, but Shareece encouraged me and ensured me that I opened my heart and my mind to God then he would begin to speak to my heart. That helped me to understand I needed to mute the noise and focus on carving a relationship with God so that he could perfect me in the areas that I needed it the most. I opened my heart and mind to God and have since then developed a relationship with God. Lifting Weights helped me to lose all the fear that I had and to stop focusing on what others had to say about me and hear what God had to say to me.  Lifting Weights has helped me become fearless and relentless when it comes to my purpose a God’s plan for my life.

I was blessed with the opportunity to be in weekly sessions in Lifting Weights. While each week was beyond amazing and bettered me as a person one week in particular stuck out to me the most. This week was when we were on the topic of forgiveness. Harboring un-forgiveness lead me to carrying so much fear within myself in the area of trust! Specifically, we were discussing self-forgiveness. Self-forgiveness is something that I did struggle with tremendously and it was also a trigger for me in my battle with depression. Shareece taught on self-forgiveness from both a biblical standpoint and a personal standpoint. In teaching that I was able to learn how to forgive myself and the importance of it. This was extremely necessary for myself and to be free from the things I was getting down on myself about that I needed to forgive myself for. I thank Shareece so much because she truly lifted a weight off of me that had been lingering on since 2013. I can say as of today I no longer carry that weight. Am I human and sometimes have a moment regarding it yes, however it is not something that I carry consistently. Learning about this has allowed me to not be afraid in trusting others, God, and even myself. Thank you so much Shareece!

First I would like to say that I am so honored to have a person in my life that holds me accountable, that’s pushes me, and prays for me. Mrs. Hunter I appreciate you encouraging me and teaching me how to be a better me in God. Pouring knowledge into me about the word of God has helped me in areas of my life in so many ways. It has help me stay focused on what is important and to remain fearless. Thank you so much I will continue to journal, shift my focus and remember all you have taught me!!

Working with you in Lifting Weights definitely helped me over come fears that I didn’t know were still there. Attending and completing the class was like a breath of fresh air. Not only did it allow me to open up to healing, it also released heaviness in my heart. It allowed me to forgive myself and others. It showed me to fear not. I feel like God picked me up and placed me right in your class at the right time. He used you to allow me to surrender all to him. If I did not go through those weeks of class with you, I would still be in denial. Thank you for your vision because it truly helped and blessed me, like you can ever imagined. I thank God for you.As I grew older, I experience a lot of changes in my understanding and feeling toward church.

I have always had a fear of opening up my wounds because I didn’t want to be judged by someone who didn’t quite understand my story or my path. On the journey to self-care, I prayed that I was lead to like-minded women who could at least relate to any parts of my life.  I have always known of Shareece but never knew must about her up until recently when she began to post videos that allowed her to talk more and share her gifts and talents. In watching her videos and reading her post I still sat back and observed her gifts as if I never knew this woman. Every video was uplifting and motivating. They encouraged me! In observing her, I was excited that she was part of a challenge that I was entering where I worked with Shareece in virtual sessions weekly. After completing the challenge, I was lead to go back to something I had put down out of fair. I reached out to Shareece because I valued her opinion based off what I seen from her previous posts and the growth that I have witnessed.
I texted Shareece early one morning to share my vision and ideas about an organization that I had pushed to the side and the response was almost immediate. Not only did she encourage me to bring it to life, she also gave me reference to help me add to it. Out of fear, I pushed my dream to the side and in prayer I was lead to Shareece for encouragement. This meant a lot to me because she could have simply replied with a short response but she wanted to help in any way she could. This act of kindness helped me with my own fear of opening up. I normally wouldn’t go to someone for advice or direction due to my own thoughts of rejection and or being judged. I don’t even think Shareece knows how motivated that conversation left me.
Lastly, I just wanted to add, woman are so harsh on each other for a number of reasons. However, I see Shareece and how she is so gentle with her tone, voice and acts of service. She doesn’t have to be as kind as she is and she does it without judgement. I appreciate her for walking her path so that when woman like myself pray for guidance where not confused when we are led to her for encouragement.
