Life That Matters Ministries, Live Significantly!

Sharon Norris Elliott is an award-winning author, speaker, and astute Bible teacher. Her delightful teaching ministry inspires her audiences to think Biblically, speak intelligently, work passionately, act responsibly, love unconditionally, and live significantly. Her aim – and her encouragement to everyone who will listen – is to live a life that matters. Some of her published books are Power Suit: The Armor of God Fit for the Feminine Frame (New Hope Publishers, 2011), Raising Boys to be like Jesus (Judson Press, 2009), Living a Milk & Honey Life: Letting Go of What’s Holding you Back (Beacon Hill Press, 2006), and What? Teenagers in the Bible? (Pleasant Word, 2003). She also has numerous published articles and devotions to her credit.

Sharon is CEO of Life That Matters Ministries, the umbrella organization that houses all her outreach activities. Her passion for hearing from God daily extends to readers internationally through her devotional blog posts, A Heart for the Word. She’s also dedicated to instructing Christian authors and encouraging them toward excellence in the business. To that end, she teaches at major Christian writers’ conferences nationwide, and is CEO of AuthorizeMe® through which she conducts seminars to help others get those book ideas down onto paper. Her ministry to women extends past her speaking at conferences and retreats, as she is also founder and CEO of Milk & Honey Life Retreats, her company through which she conducts Christian women’s spa retreat weekends.

Sharon is a graduate of Biola University and has enjoyed a 30-year career as a high school English and journalism teacher. She and her husband James attend Christ Second Baptist Church of Long Beach, CA, and are delighting in their Southern California empty nest, left so by their blended family of five grown children, two of which have given them their three grand-children.
