Psalm 19:1

Sharon Todd

Hey, I'm Sharon!

I’m so glad you are here! Join me on a faith adventure into the breathtakingly beautiful Adirondacks Mountains. You will discover a peaceful place where you can grow in your faith, be encouraged, and move forward with a hopeful purpose. 

Let's Start  the Journey...

My Story

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."

Isaiah 60:1

Your Story

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.

“This book shows us how we can bring our burdens (mountains) to the Lord and let Him take care of them. It is a matter of faith and trust. This is a “masterpiece” that everyone should read.”

“This book is for everyone. Whether you’re a hiker or not (and I’m not), there are powerful images that resonated with me, challenges that I also faced, and accounts of surmounting life’s hurdles. Beautifully written, easy to digest, and insightful from beginning to end. The perfect companion!”

“Sharon has a way of gently guiding a person, at any season in their lives, to Gods Word, for encouragement, for hope, for guidance and for truth to cope with any stumbling blocks we may come across as disciples for Christ. One could almost feel her gently hand on their shoulder nudging them towards Gods’…

“Carpets of pine needles, sparkling rocks, sun-splashed ridges, and clean mountain scents prompted me to sneak my feet into Sharon’s hiking boots during her mountain climb. I was drawn to the challenge, and I wanted to hike up with her to see what the outcome would be. As Sharon stripped off layers and revealed raw…

“The book is very meaty for the believer and yet approachable for the non-believer. Sharon bridged that well. Her steady spiritual insights kept me invested in the book.”

This book is a deep soul-searching adventure not only for the author but also the reader. Clearly the Spirit was with her every step up the mountain, and down every winding trail. Clothed in HIS Armor, Sharon was guided through life’s pitfalls as she focused only on one thing! Following God’s path! I’m honored to…

“Arise, and Climb the Mountain” was an example of God’s perfect timing in my life. He knew that I needed a book to minister to me during the trials of life. Sharon’s book is an inspiration to those who may have lost hope or are in the thick of a trial. I loved how transparent…

“The Transformational Trek Study Guide began in me a deep desire to amend my life and walk with Jesus, more closely. I recommend this study to anyone who has the desire to embrace a radical transformation and to follow Jesus Christ with boldness, courage and authenticity.
