For Such A Time As This

Rev. Sharon Risher 

 Nothing could have prepared the author for the murder of her mother – and eight others – by a white supremacist at Mother Emanuel AME church in Charleston, South Carolina. This book is Risher’s raw and riveting story of life before and after the tragedy, a powerful testimony of faith and transformation in the face of unspeakable evil.


Plunged into the depts of mourning, anger, and shock, the Rev. Sharon Risher could have wallowed in the pain of losing her mother and two cousins at the hands of the white supremacist during the massacre at the church. Instead, she chose the path of forgiveness and hope – eventually forgiving the convicted killer for his crime.
