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 is inspiring and beautiful. Sharon takes you on a journey through the Adirondack mountains as she listens, trusts, and seeks God.  I was spurred on in my personal journey with being reminded of God’s faithfulness and to continue to be expectant in His love.

“Arise, and Climb the Mountain” by dear friend Sharon Eleanor Todd blessed me in an amazing way. It affirmed how much God loves me, that I don’t need to travel through this life alone as He is with me always and will never leave me behind. Jesus fills every page of the book with His…
