- A Pharisee Set Free -
Charis Bible College graduate|
and business owner, Sandy Harmon.
The Lord has prospered Sandy as
she has followed His lead.
Nearly a decade after Sandy had received the free gift of salvation, and after she had served her church as a deaconess and a Bible study leader, she began to realize that she had not established a true relationship with Jesus. In her own words she was a Pharisee.
When Sandy listened to Andrew's teaching, You've Already Got It, she was set free. She had been teaching Bible lessons and acting like a Christian, but she really didn't understand the truth of the Word. This message completely changed Sandy's approach to the Word and her relationship with God.

As Sandy continued to listen to Andrew's teaching, she began to have a desire to attend Charis Bible College (CBC). Although she imagined attending CBC in the distant future, it became clear to her, as she gained deeper revelation of God's love for her, that the Lord was leading her to go to CBC much sooner than she envisioned. In early spring of 2002, Sandy contacted CBC and asked for information about the school. She then attended one of Andrew's camp meetings and that helped finalize her decision; she moved her family to Colorado one month later.

the new building that Sandy returned to
the Robinson location to overhear the
phone conversation that led to her first
job in Colorado Springs.
After getting situated in Colorado Springs, Sandy spent the next two years attending CBC; saturating herself in the Word of God and being equipped for a life of ministry in the marketplace. Her mornings were spent in classes and her afternoons were filled with business opportunities—all of which came supernaturally.

Sandy yielded to the stirring and gave her notice at work. Six months later, after hearing in her spirit "Call brokers," she began to call local Real Estate brokers and ask them if they needed help with their businesses. As she offered her expertise, not as an agent, but as a consultant, the Lord consistently brought her new experiences and a wide array of job opportunities—not all in Real Estate. Over the next several years Sandy held four different jobs, and much like Joseph's story in the book of Genesis, God's favor was evident in each position. She would work for a season, and then Sandy would be laid off. Though troubled by the disturbing trend of being let go,

After being released from a job in 2009, Sandy reflected on her experiences, and it became evident that the Lord had gifted her in the areas of business development, organization and administration. Sandy sought the Lord for her next step. Again she heard the words, "Call brokers"—something from which she had drifted, clinging instead to the security of a steady paycheck and benefits. Sandy heard the Lord say, “If it’s not by my grace, than it does not belong to you.” Again Sandy yielded and opened her own company. "By this point I knew that the Lord had gifted me to help people—specifically Realtors. The name of my company is Helping You Succeed and that is what I do. I assess a broker's business and spiritual needs, and then God uses me to be a blessing to them and to minister to them in their marketplace."

Looking back Sandy shared, "The Lord was so good in how He provided for me and my three when we got to Colorado." Through Andrew's teaching and her subsequent revelation of God's love for her, Sandy had developed a true relationship with the Lord. Through that relationship with Jesus and her dependence upon the Holy Spirit, He has guided her every step into His promises of prosperity and abundance.
