'Steps With Sharon'

cheering people on to love God's Word


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 women 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 upon women from the overflow of what God is doing in her own life through His Word... writing Bible Studies, sharing live and online Bible teaching, rallying Bible memorization projects, 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 women 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 33 years and both serve in Established Footsteps. They have two adult children who are rich blessings from the Lord!

Scripture Copying is a great way to MEDITATE on God's Word. 

Anyone can do it, new believers, mature believers, even children! 

Copying God's Word helps us slow down, take in every word...

and really hear what God is saying. 

We like to say, "It's a great way to start a conversation with God!" 


In 2018 we are developing a series of Scripture Copying Plans called "Words of Life" and we invite you to join us for each one.

All you need is a willing heart, your Bible, some paper (we recommend getting a notebook) and a pen.
