About Sharon Hoover
Sharon’s passion in life has always been to create a space where people can experience God. Over the years this drive motivated her to lead youth conferences, disciple new believers, speak at retreats, and work in the church. She has written resources and curriculum to disciple people of all ages and stages of life. In Soul Motive™, she shares her knowledge gathered over decades of ministry, seminary coursework, and life experiences.
Sharon now turns her attention to the opportunities of the internet. She loves everything technology and is usually the first among family and work colleagues to experiment with new apps, digital gadgets, and entrepreneurial products. Technology allows access to resources like never before. Working with an awesome team of designers, Sharon embraces the technology to make teachings, worksheets, devotionals, and retreat booklets available. She looks forward to eventually adding audio recordings, online discipleship groups, and webinars to Soul Motive™ as well.
Sharon enjoys a quiet life with her husband in their geodesic dome on the edge of a bubbling, mountain stream. Well, not really. That is the dream scenario for the future. For now, she and her husband brave the suburban life with their occasionally-visiting college son and daughter. Sharon loves her church family and the way they inspire and challenge her in faith and in community.
