Sharon Jaynes has been encouraging women through ministry for over twenty-five years. From the time she met Christ as a teenager, she fell in love with God’s Word and has had a passion to equip women to live fully and free. She encourages and empowers women to walk in courage and confidence as they grasp their true identity as a child of God and a co-heir with Christ.
For ten years Sharon served as Vice President of Proverbs 31 Ministries and co-host for their daily radio feature. She is the author of 25 books including Never Less Than: Living Empowered, Esteemed, and Equipped When the World Tells You Otherwise, and When You Don’t Like Your Story: What if Your Worst Chapters Could Become Your Greatest Victories.
Sharon is a frequent guest on radio and television programs such as Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss, Family Life Today, and Focus on the Family.
She is the co-founder of Girlfriends in God, Inc., a non-denominational ministry that crosses generational, denominational, and racial boundaries to bring the Body of Christ together as believers. She, along with her ministry partners provide daily devotions to women (and a few men) all around the world.
NOTE FROM SHARON:
That was the official bio, and honestly, it makes me sound a lot more studious and accomplished than I really am. So let me tell you what you really need to know.
I’m just a simple gal raised in eastern North Carolina who loves the beach, drinks too much sweet tea and is still crazy about her husband after thirty-nine years. If there was ever a situation where I had to run for my life, I’d just plan on meeting Jesus because I wouldn’t get very far. The treadmill is becoming my new friend, but we’re not all that chummy yet.
I have one grown son that lives 767.5 miles away (yes, I’ve counted them). Being his mom has been one of the greatest joys of my life, but he grew up without my permission. Seriously, he is a creative whipper-snapper whom God has used to teach me many life lessons. In 2019, Steven married precious Emily, and I finally have my daughter!
When I write my blogs, women always say, “how did you know exactly what I am going through.” My answer is always the same, “because I’m going through the very same stuff you are.” I don’t have it altogether and I certainly don’t have all the answers. But I do know the One Who does, and there’s nothing I love better than grabbing hold of a sister’s hand and learning how to live fully and free in Christ together.
