In February 2013 Fred and I attended the National Religious Broadcasters Convention. A whole new world was opened up to me the moment I entered the Gaylord Opryland Resort and joined the ranks of thousands of folks in the Christian entertainment industry, I was hooked. I immediately went home and launched the Faith Flix blog with the intent to provide a behind the scenes look at faith-based films and the people behind them.
Over the years I’ve interviewed close to 300 filmmakers, actors, screenwriters, composers, editors, and other filmmaker folks. I’ve reviewed dozens of movies and introduced my followers to films they might not otherwise have ever known about. And, of course, I took everyone along for the ride as we produced our own movies.
I’ve been blessed by Faith Flix, but we’re no longer in the movie business, and there’s no need to hold on to the Faith Flix name. We’ve been approached through the years by people wanting to buy the domain, but either we weren’t ready to give it up yet or they never followed through. But this week we were approached by a pastor in the Netherlands who has been praying for the domain to use for his ministry. So on Monday, the Faith Flix name will pass on to him.
But don’t despair! The content will remain. I’m not getting rid of the blog. It will just not be called Faith Flix anymore. From now on, it’s just my Sharon Wilharm blog.
If you’ve been following my blog, you know that my passion right now is podcasting. I have fallen in love with the podcasting world and am so excited about All God’s Women, my podcast that works my way through the Bible, one woman at a time. If you’ve not already, I encourage you to check it out. All God’s Women is available wherever you listen to podcasts, or you can listen to it right here on my website.
To celebrate the end of the Faith Flix era, I’m giving away the DVD collection of our MainStreet Productions movies – Class of ’91, Flowers for Fannie, The Good Book, Providence, and Summer of ’67.
To enter, comment below, your favorite article from the Faith Flix blog. A winner will be chosen at random on June 4.

I think I liked the article from June 2016 about the stage play/movie “The Last Appeal” because I volunteer at a local women’s prison.
Oh, it’s a wonderful movie! And the actors and filmmakers are the real deal. They truly have a heart for evangelism.
How do you pick a favorite out of so many great interview?! Of course if I’m honest, my interview would be my fav for several reasons. I was just getting seriously involved in the industry back then, so you interviewing me was a great honor. When I read the interview now, I’m reminded of how much I’ve learned since then, & how much I’ve grown as an artist. I’ve enjoyed reading so many of the interviews. Many blessings to you as you end this part of your journey. ❤
Oh, that is so cool to hear! Glad I could be a part of your journey!
Sad to see but so excited to see where God takes you in this new passion. Too often I think people feel they have to do something forever – which is the very reason many people never start.
I also sold a domain this year, CarneDiem.com. On a family vacation to Florida we hit 7 Man v Food restaurants and on the way out of Atlanta on the way home (restaurant 7) I said, “instead of Carpe Diem, why not Carne Diem – Meat the Day?”
I Was SHOCKED when the domain was available. I had fun with it, but then it got hacked and we just used it as a forwarder to our Facebook page.
We’d also had a couple bites, and this year I realized that I was unlikely to ever really move forward with it, so when an offer came in, I bumped up a bit higher than I thought they would go, and they didn’t even hesitate. Some went to some general expenses, and some went to the ministry ($500 towards Facebook ads for our CMC pages, locally raise $30 and we’ll put in $20 to cover the 10 day $50 ad!)
I’m glad you’re keeping the content available through your own site!
Because He Lives!
Faith Flix in your hands will be missed greatly, Sharon Wilharm! Bravo for all that you’ve built! And CONGRATULATIONS on these new opportunities. May His favor continue to be upon you. Trey Fernald (Eastern Sky Theatre Company)
Trey, did you see the earlier comment about The Last Appeal?
Congratulations, Kimberly Richardson! You’re the winner of the DVD collection!
