“Live significantly!” That’s the inspiring message of Sharon Norris Elliott, award-winning author, popular conference speaker, and astute Bible teacher. Sharon loves Jesus, wants her life to count, and encourages everyone who will listen to live a life that matters. She walks out this calling in many ways. As an author, Sharon is excited about the release of her latest book, Why I Get Into Trouble, the first in her children’s series. Boomerangs to Arrows: A Godly Guide for Launching Young Adult Children, is her second parenting title, and follows her second women’s title, Power Suit, the Armor of God Fit for the Feminine Frame. These three bring the total of her published works to ten (10). Her books span genres from parenting, to women’s, to teens’, to children’s, and to general Christian interest. Sharon also serves as Editor-in-chief of Gospel Roads online magazine. Check her ministry website, www.LifeThatMatters.net for updates, and read her devotional blog, “A Heart for the Word,” at www.sanewriter.wordpress.com.
Beside her first ministry love of teaching the Word of God in writing and by speaking at various types of conferences, retreats, and services; Sharon is also dedicated to instructing Christian authors and encouraging them toward excellence in the publishing business. To that end, she teaches at major Christian writers’ conferences nationwide. Additionally, Sharon is CEO of AuthorizeMe®, her own mentoring/coaching/editing service through which she assists writers toward their publishing goals via private coaching or fun, hands-on seminars.
Sharon is a graduate of Biola University and currently attends Golden Gate Theological Seminary where she is pursuing her Masters degree. She is also still busily employed full-time, teaching English at Orange Lutheran High School, celebrating her 30th year in the educational ministry. She and her husband James attend Christ Second Baptist Church in Long Beach, CA, where she serves as a licensed minister, Sunday School teacher, and director with her husband of Covenant Keepers, their marriage ministry. Sharon and James are enjoying their Southern California empty nest, left so by their blended family of five grown children, three of which have given them their four grand-children.
