Living a Life that Matters

Bio: Let’s live significantly!” Audiences are ignited to do just that when Sharon speaks, uniquely pairing her engaging sense of humor with her deep understanding of Biblical truth. When her pastor once asked her to explain her passion, she answered, “I want my life to count for God.” That passion drives the teaching and encouragement Sharon brings to your event because not only does she want her life to count, she will inspire your group to live lives that will make a difference as well. Her aim is always to see others think Biblically, speak intelligently, work passionately, act responsibly, love unconditionally, and live significantly.

Founder and CEO: Life That Matters Ministries; Milk & Honey Life Retreats; AuthorizeMe Consulting, Coaching, and Editing Service; and the AuthorizeMe Seminar

Sharon is also able to tailor a message to fit your program’s theme and the specific needs of your organization.
