Finding Freedom Was Just the Beginning by Shari Ho & Sherry Ward

     “Hello Mr. Tree. Do you remember me?” Shari whispered. “I was so little when you knew me as a slave, but I just wanted to let you know…I’m free now!” The beauty of Shari’s favorite tree in this parklike surrounding was in stark contrast to this little girl who was once held as a slave. As Shari continued to speak to the tree, I looked up and saw that was cut in the form of a square at the very top. Griped with a new-found sense of God’s providence, I realized the name of my company Square Tree Publishing was no accident—nor the fact that Shari and I had been brought together by God’s design. Sold as a slave when she was only seven years old, Shari Ho’s story became the focus of CNN’s Freedom Project that made headlines all around the world and is chronicled in the book, "My Name is Also Freedom".  

     "Finding Freedom was Just the Beginning" is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of her book. This four-and one-half-year journey includes the backstories, miracles, and God-stories that happened along the way—amazing stories of God’s providence intersecting with sheer faith —keeping you on the edge of your seat. I pray that these God-stories not only inspire you but give you a greater level of faith for your own life. I know that is what Shari would want for you, too.

“What happened in Taiwan left me speechless. What God orchestrated for us—for Shari—blew me away!
