Sharilynn (aka Shari) Hunt, DMin, lives an active life in a suburb of Memphis, Tennessee. She and her husband, David, have resided in California, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, and Tennessee and have set a goal to visit all fifty states together.
During the early years as a young wife and stay-at-home mom, she participated in a neighborhood bible study and experienced a dramatic conversion to Jesus Christ.
Over the next few years, Sharilynn began to teach neighborhood bible studies and classes in her church, speak at women’s groups, and develop a passion for prayer. In 2001, she traded her career as a medical social worker and rehabilitation counselor to pursue a ministry of intercession. From 2003-2019, Sharilynn founded and ministered through New Creation Realities Ministry Inc, a nonprofit teaching and prayer ministry.
Today, she participates in a network of intercessors, speaks on various topics of faith, and writes inspirational stories, articles, and books as a freelance writer.
Her published books include Grace Overcomes Today (2017), and Together We PRAY (2020). As a contributing author, her published stories are in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Best Mom Ever! and The Forgiveness Fix books and James Stuart Bell’s, Life-Changing Miracles, Heaven Sightings, and Miracles Do Happen books.
Sharilynn’s educational background includes a BA degree in social work from the University of Georgia and an MS degree in rehabilitation counseling from Memphis State University. She received her ordination and a Doctor of Ministries degree from Shalom Bible College and Seminary.
Gardening in perfect weather, traveling, leading prayer groups, scrapbooking memories, and writing fill many of her hours. After loving her own essential oils, Sharilynn became an independent distributor for Young Living essential oils. Married over fifty years, she and David are proud of their grown daughter, son, love-in-laws, and four amazing grandchildren.
