An Epic Transformation
Sandra grew up in a small town in Lousiana. Her family didn’t have much and from a young age she learned that to get ahead she had to be focused and outwork everyone around her. Sandra’s desire to escape her circumstances propelled her on to get a scholarship to college and then to a meteoric career.
Her motto was no pets, no plants, no boys. She was laser focused. Sandra was the CEO of a large multi-national toy company with offices around the world and was in New York City on September 11th, 2001 when everything changed. She shares the full story during our riveting interview.
“Your awards, and your labels, and your badges, and all this stuff that you accumulate fall away in an instant.” – Sandra Crawford Williamson
In that moment Sandra realized she had to recalibrate her life because she was living for the wrong reasons. She had spent years trying to overcome her upbringing by adding layers upon layers, titles and accomplishments. Sandra felt like the StayPuft Marshmallow Man walking around because she had so many layers on. These all fell away that day.
“[In New York during 9/11] all of us looked the same, you’ve seen the pictures where your covered head to toe in the greyish covering and we all looked the same and I just had this moment where God said ‘This is what it will be like when you face me in eternity, everybody looks the same to me.’ ” – Sandra Crawford Williamson
Sandra learned that everything in her life improved through this change in perspective and in embracing a personal relationship with Jesus. She started serving others instead of expecting to be served. She learned to value relationships, which led Sandra to deep peace and joy and to the love of her life, her husband.
Sandra started to fight on her knees and asked God for forgiveness. God has had his hand in her life in a big way as she battled cancer, infertility and finding purpose in her life. You will hear about incredible miracles and how God wants the same for you!
