More About Sharon Wilharm


Sharon Wilharm is a filmmaker, blogger, and speaker who uses her movie industry background to provide a unique slant to each presentation. Her movies have a common thread of God's providential work in our lives and she loves combining movie screenings with behind the scenes stories of how God's plans are far greater than anything we could imagine for ourselves. Many of her presentations include a shoe theme of stepping out in faith, finding the right shoes for the journey God has planned, and shaking in our shoes. 

Sharon has recently taken over as women's ministry director at her church and is excited to be moving on to the next stage of her life as she passes on the baton to the younger filmmaker generation and focuses her attention on inspiring and encouraging Christian women. 

Filmmaker  - Sharon's movies have won countless film festival accolades, are available at Christian retailers around the world and online at Amazon Prime, iTunes and other VOD outlets, and frequently air on television.

Blogger - Sharon's blog Faith Flix covers the film world from a Christian female perspective, reviewing movies that women can enjoy, interviewing film industry individuals, and spreading the word about screenwriters, filmmakers, actresses, and other individuals who are making a difference via film. Her interviewees include actresses Jenn Gotzon (Frost/Nixon), Irene Santiago (High School Musical) and Shari Rigby (October Baby, Overcomer) and filmmaker Alexandra Boylan (Catching Faith).

Our church was so thrilled for Sharon & Fred Wilharm to come and speak, as well as show their latest film, Summer of '67. Not only was her story moving, we were so grateful the way the film raised conversation and brought people of all ages together. We were brought to both tears and laughter, and I hope we can have them back sometime!

I first met Sharon in the summer of 2018 when we were both speakers at the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival. Sharon was there to discuss promotion and marketing of films, but her insight, knowledge and experience could be utilized not just for film, but for any product or service. Additionally, Sharon was open, friendly - and best of all - approachable -not just during Q&A, but throughout the festival. She truly wants to help you help become successful! I would highly recommend Sharon Wilharm as a speaker. I rate her 6 out of 5!

What a wonderful and inspiring presentation. Sharon is so encouraging. As she presented her amazing life story, her words were stirring and uplifting. How God's plan prevailed, unfolding in her life story, was presented as comfortably as "the girl next door"---but what an awesome neighbor! How His Divine Timing for His Purpose, required patience, and how many times she had to wait for His Plan to unfold, is a common lesson for all of us to learn. Allowing God to move stepping stone pieces in place, especially using creative talents, for His Glory, has its rewards. Sharon's easy and comfortable style in communicating with an audience, made an entertaining informative session. And her beauty shines like Light from within.
