cheering people on to love God's Word
Established Footsteps exists to come alongside
people to cheer them on to love the Word of God,
and to establish their daily life steps in its Truth.
Since 2006, that has been our mission
and we continue to seek God for creative ways
to promote a love for His Word in His people.
As you explore our site, we hope you'll find encouragement, resources and information
about the varying ways God is
working through Established Footsteps Ministry,
and how you might join in and be blessed.
Meet our Leader
Sharon Thomas has had a heart for Christ throughout her life and grew up as a vibrant young girl loving God and His church. Nevertheless, after graduating from college, and becoming a pastor’s wife,
she found life grew difficult. There were many unanswered questions and pain and grief surfaced.
At 29 years old, while she struggled to make life “work”, God stepped in and answered her prayer,
to give her a hunger for His Word. Her life has never been the same!
Soon after, God clearly placed a call for ministry on Sharon’s life. Through years of study, prayer, and experience, God was faithful in preparing her, and on her 40th birthday, He birthed Established Footsteps, which is based on Psalm 119:133, “Establish my footsteps in Your Word, let no sin have power over me.”
Sharon has a passion for cheering people on to love God’s Word and showing them how to establish their daily steps in it. Since Established Footsteps began in 2006, she has simply poured out from the overflow of what God is pouring into her own life through His Word... writing Bible Studies, sharing live and online Bible teaching, rallying Bible memorization, producing Bible Study events and conferences, hosting Paint the Word events, developing Scripture Copying Plans and more. It is the joy of Sharon's heart to walk with people in the Truth of God's Word and to create resources to help them do just that!
Sharon and her husband Marvin have been married for 36 years.
They have two adult children and a daughter-in-love and son-in-love who are rich blessings from the Lord!
They make their home in the coastal area of Virginia.
