Shine was a four-year high school Varsity cheerleader, involved in theater performances and dance classes. She graduated with a B.A. in Mass Communications from a four-year college. While in college, she stayed active with theater productions, dance classes, and her Liberal Arts curriculum. So, how did she end up in a Florida jail for seven months and mental health hospitals? Well,that’s the interesting question. While in jail, Shine’s faith not only grew, but was tested on a daily basis. She hit her lowest ebb sitting on a jail cell floor, deep in the night, bent over a laundry basket filled with clothes, spiritual books, and legal information. Shine cried out, “God, please help me!”
If you have ever felt so downtrodden that you just wanted to give up, then this exciting, emotional, and surprising story is definitely worth the read! It is a true story about hope,determination and faith. Psalm 7:10 “My defense is of God, who saves the upright in heart.”

My name is Rebecca Benston. I’m a Christian. I’m a woman. I’m a mother. I’m a writer. I’m a thinker. When I write fiction, I am usually writing a mystery series called The Rona Shively Stories. My P.I. character, Rona Shively is feisty, fearless and fabulous and is usually caught up in something she doesn’t want to be caught up in. In addition to this series, I also have a blog called Higher Ground for Life. Through this blog, I’m hoping to reach women or anyone who is seeking to develop a relationship with God and give them inspiration to get out there and follow His path for their lives!
I also have a blog called Leading the Follower. This one is my favorite. I write about religion, faith, spirituality and all that goes along with it. What we believe, what we don’t believe, what we are told to believe and how society feels about believing in general. I do a lot of testifying here and some of what I say may make you angry. Most of it will make you think. Some of it will make you cry. Any of it could make you laugh. It’s really up to you.
