Eat Live Thrive Diet

When I got the invitation to be a part of the launch team for Eat Live Thrive Diet: A Lifestyle Plan to Rev Up Your Midlife Metabolism, I got excited. Yes, please! The bold print on the back cover enticed me, "Turn Back the Scale and The Clock With This Inspiring Lifestyle Plan." What more…

The Least of These – Book Review

Last month we got together with a group of friends and watched Priceless. After the movie ended, we sat in silence for awhile trying to comprehend it all. What followed was a discussion of sex trafficking and what could be done to stop it. Since then, we've been sharing articles and resources on the subject.…

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…

Wild Hope – Book Review

I met Meghan Weyerbacher last year when we did a Summer of '67 Message, Meal, and a Movie event at her church. I knew she was a blogger who blogged about writing, but at the time, she wasn't an author. She was just a super sweet woman encouraging other writers to succeed. A few months…

Other Bodies – Book Review

I don't read many YA dystopian books, but the concept of Other Bodies piqued my interest, so I took advantage of the opportunity to review it. Other Bodies is set in futuristic Philadelphia, in a world where virtual reality is blurred with reality. Author Joel Ohman invites us on a journey with sixteen-year-old Hattie Martins…

The Rape of Recy – Movie Review

When my daughter was in school she participated in National History Day and competed at the regional, state, and national level for five years. She also competed each year in a local history-based film festival for high school students. As a result of attending the many events, we witnessed hundreds of performances, exhibits, websites, and…

Marnie Swedberg

I first discovered Marnie Swedberg when I watched one of her teleconferences. From there, I learned about Christian Women Speakers and was excited to sign on as speaker. The longer I know Marnie, the more I'm amazed at all that she does. She's the author of thirteen books. She travels around the globe speaking on…

When Life Doesn’t Match Your Dreams – Book Review

Let me begin by saying that the subtitle for When Life Doesn't Match Your Dreams is "Hope for Today from 12 Women of the Bible". Honestly, for me, the subtitle better expresses the book than the title. I love reading about women of the Bible, and this is a good one. So don't be misled…

Almost Home – Book Review

Growing up, I was a bookworm. I carried a book with me wherever I went and would often get in trouble at school for reading when I was supposed to be doing school work. My favorite reads were vintage books from the forties through sixties, preferably those with ensemble casts of quirky characters. I read…

Faith Flix Blog Undergoing Changes

If you've visited my website over the past week or so, you've probably noticed changes. It's gone from a blog with a little about me as a speaker, to a speaker website with a blog.  You'll be happy to know, though, the content is still here, just packaged a little differently. We're coming on the…
