CPE 2019 – Edie Melson

Sharon Wilharm and Edie Melson at CPE 2019

Edie Melson is a women I've admired from afar for a long time. I'm not sure how I first became aware of her. Was it her writing, her speaking, her writers conference? I don't remember. Nevertheless, I knew when I saw her name on the list of authors attending the Christian Product Expo I wanted…

CPE 2019 – Susan Neal

Sharon Wilharm and Susan Neal at CPE 2019

Author Susan Neal and I connected with AWSA right after I first joined. She was looking for reviews of her new book and found out I did book reviews. I read her Healthy Living Series: 3 Books in 1 and loved it. She's authentic and real. She talks about the struggle of wanting to eat…

CPE 2019 – Linda Goldfarb

Sharon Wilharm interviews author Linda Goldfarb at CPE 2019

Industry events are so often divine connections. Such is the case with Linda Goldfarb. She's a friend of a friend, actually, a friend of several friends, and we were introduced at the Christian Product Expo because they wanted to make sure I got to know her and interviewed her. After our initial small talk, she…

CPE 2019 – Erica Wiggenhorn

Erica Wiggenhorn was one of the first authors we lined up to interview at Christian Product Expo. Her book Unexplainable Jesus released with Moody Publishers in June. Unexplainable Jesus is a devotional Bible study, an in-depth study of the life of Christ as revealed in the book of Luke. It's an 8-week study broken up…

CPE 2019 – Elaine Helms

Elaine Helms and Sharon Wilharm at CPE 2019

I love all the connections that come from Advanced Writers and Speakers Association (AWSA). Elaine Helms is another fellow AWSA member, and we met when I posted in the group about finding a prayer book. She writes prayer books, so we corresponded a bit, then I went and bought her book Prayer 101. It's a…

CPE 2019 – Pamela Christian

Don't you love when God leads you on a path, and you think you're heading for one destination, only you end up somewhere completely different, but oh, so much better? That's what happened when I lined up Pamela Christian to interview at Christian Product Expo.  I first picked Pamela to interview because I saw she…

CPE 2019 – Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett

We've been to many industry events, but never one where the energy level matched what we encountered at this year's Christian Product Expo. Authors were excited about their books and eager to share about them. None, however, were quite as excited as co-authors Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett when they saw for the first…

Christian Product Expo 2019

For years I've heard about the amazing Christian Product Expo in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, only it wasn't open to media, so we couldn't attend. Then, this year I got an email from Lori Heiselman, founder of Biscuit Media Group, inviting us to be part of the media coverage of this year's CPE. I'm so glad she…

For Everything There is a Season

In 2012 Fred bought the domain FaithFlix.com. At the time we didn't have a use for it, but he bought it with the expectation that at some point we would need it. And we did. After attending NRB Convention in 2013, I felt inspired to start blogging about the faith-film industry. Faith Flix was conceived…

Interview with Sharon Wilharm

Thanks to National Association of Film Critics for the great interview. We got to talk about my filmmaking background, my directing style, our experience with AMC Independent, and more.

National Association of Film Critics

What inspired you to get into filmmaking?

I never intended to be a filmmaker. I was a bookworm and never even really watched movies. But my husband had a broadcast communications degree and ten years into our marriage decided he was going to make a documentary about the history of the small town we’d moved to. Somehow that documentary morphed into a narrative feature with me writing the script, directing it, and starring in it. I had no clue what I was doing and hated it. But ten years later, he convinced me to do another movie. We ended up doing seven movies, and at some point, I decided if this was what God had us doing, the least I could do was to learn how to become a better screenwriter and filmmaker.

What filmmakers would you say were your greatest sources of inspiration and who had the greatest influence…
