“Live significantly!” That’s the inspiring message of Sharon Norris Elliott, award-winning author, speaker, and astute Bible teacher, encouraging everyone who will listen to live a life that matters. Her latest new release, Boomerangs to Arrows: A Godly Guide for Launching Young Adult Children, is her second parenting title, and follows her second women’s title, Power Suit, the Armor of God Fit for the Feminine Frame. These two bring the total of her published works to nine (9). Those previous books span genres from parenting, to women’s, to teens’, to general Christian interest. These will be followed in 2014 by her first children’s series, I Really Need to Know. She also serves as Editor-in-chief of Gospel Roads online magazine.
