"The heavens declare the glory of God: the skies proclaim the work of His hands."
Hey, I'm Sharon!
Let's Start the Journey...
Hey, I’m Sharon and I’m excited to introduce you to the stunning beauty of the Adirondacks Mountains in upstate New York. My family has deep roots in the Adirondacks which goes back over four generations, and our camp at Lake Titus is a special part of that history. The Adirondacks have been a place of renewal for my family and inspiration for my writing for over 20 years. I am passionate about empowering people to grow in faith and experience renewed hope, healing and purpose. Over the years, I have worn many hats in ministry including serving in hospitals, universities, urban churches, short-term missions, zoom meetings and on hiking trails.
"Arise, shine for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you."
When I’m hiking in the mountains, gliding down the lake in a kayak, or just sitting on the dock watching the sunrise, I am in awe of God and His artistry in His spectacular creation all around me. I’m looking forward to taking you on an adventure of faith in the Adirondacks. First, read my story in Arise and Climb the Mountain, and then the Holy Spirit and I will guide you through your own story in the Transformational Trek Study Guide. Are you ready? Put on your hiking boots and join me on an adventure.
My Story, Your Story, and Taylor's Story is part of God's Story
We all have regrets over bad choices, and we long for a second chance. Well… there is a way! Christ laid down his life to die on the cross for our sins, so we could be set free. His sacrifice allowed us to become new creations in Christ, but we need to believe the truth of the gospel and be willing to follow Christ as our Lord and Savior. Let me share with you the story of Taylor, who took a transformational trek to new beginnings. We can all relate to her story.
