Christian Speaker And Bible Storyteller

Sharon Wilharm

Through the years I’ve worn many hats – filmmaker, blogger, writer, ministry leader, speaker, and now podcaster and radio host. The common thread of all my hats is women and storytelling. 

I love to tell stories that inspire and encourage women in their walk with the Lord. As a filmmaker, I made movies with a female perspective. As a blogger, I’ve shared the stories of female filmmakers, actresses, authors, and speakers. As a ministry leader, I’ve worked with girls and women of all ages, helping them to discover and share their unique stories. 

But it wasn’t until I discovered Bible woman and started telling their stories that I truly found my voice. I fell in love with the Bible and the stories within its pages. Now I can’t stop talking about all the amazing women of the Bible and how much we have in common with them! I’d love to share them with you as well.

Perhaps you’re like I used to be. You’ve read the Bible plenty. You’re pretty familiar with it. You think you know most of the stories. But it’s never really come to life for you. If so, I would love to come share with you and your group of women. You pick a topic you’re dealing with, and I can tell you about a Bible woman (or two) who dealt with the same thing. What a relief it is to discover that all that we’re going through is nothing new, and that God blessed us with all these stories to guide us on our journey.

Whatever the theme of your next retreat or conference, there’s a woman in the Bible whose story goes along with that theme. I LOVE sharing the ancient stories of Bible women and bringing them to life with applications for modern women. Whether it’s one short session or an entire weekend, I can encourage your ladies with powerful stories and truths as we pour through the pages of the Bible, reviewing familiar stories or discovering new women.

Speaking Topics

Worn Out And Weary

Are you feeling worn out and weary? If so, you can find comfort in the stories of women in the Bible who also faced their own struggles. In this presentation I take you on a storytelling journey through the Bible, looking at the lives of Hagar, Naomi, the Prophet's Widow, Job's Wife, Widow of Nain, and Rizpah. "God gives strength to the weary and strengthens the powerless." Isaiah 40:29

Good Women Gone Bad

How many times do you fall short of who you want to be? We all fall down, but what do you do when you fall? Do you stay on the ground? Do you dig a deeper hole? Or do you look for help from above? The Bible is filled with fallen women. Let's learn from their mistakes. A look at Miriam, Lot's wife, Michal, Salome, Saphira, Micah's mother, Peninnah, and Job's wife. "Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the LORD holds his hand" Psalm 37:24

Women of Prayer

What should prayer look like? As we pore over the stories of Bible women, we learn to rejoice in hope like Miriam, remain patient in tribulation like Hannah, persevere in prayer like Huldah, persist in our pleas like the Canaanite woman, marvel in the wonder of God's goodness and grace like Hagar. "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." Romans 12:12

Rock Your World

Do you feel God calling you to great things, yet you wonder how God could possibly use you with the meager gifts you have to offer Him? Find encouragement as you discover Bible women who found themselves in the right place at the right time. See how they continued serving in little ways so that they were ready when God called them to undertake grand efforts. Find courage as you’re reminded of God’s amazing power and strength. * Includes Rahab, Woman of Abel, Woman of Bahurim, Jehosheba, Mephibosheth's Nurse, and Zelophehad's Daughters

The Royal Life

How many of us have dreamed of being a princess? We watch Hallmark movies and read romance novels, wishing we could have the royal happy ever after. But if we look at the princesses and queens in the Bible, it doesn't take long to realize that royal life is not without struggles. Fortunately, God can take even the worst situations and use them for His glory. Let's discover how to make the most of the life that God has given us as Daughters of the King of Kings.

Lineage of Jesus

If you could choose your lineage, who would you choose? Wouldn't you select the most talented, courageous, and morally pure women you could find. So why did God use such flawed individuals for the lineage of Jesus? Eve was deceived. Rebekah and Tamar deceived others. Sarah was an abuser. Leah and Bathsheba victims. Rahab and Ruth weren't even Hebrew. And yet, God saw something in each of them and used them as part of His plan for the Promised Messiah.

Don’t see what you’re looking for? No worries! I love the challenge of creating original sessions based on women of the Bible. Whatever your theme or topic, I can always find a grouping of Bible women to go along with it.
