Sharon R. Hoover is the director of missions at Centreville Presbyterian Church, where she leads local and global outreach and equips the congregation to connect through prayer, internships, and regular serving opportunities. As an author, she writes devotional and inspirational works for all who are exploring and growing in the journey of faith, contributing to Everbloom: Stories of Deeply Rooted and Transformed Lives and Don’t Hide Your Light.
Her passions for education and global issues led her from being a high school teacher to a Middle East analyst with the CIA and then to serving in the church. Through writing and speaking, she encourages women as they seek God in life, in play, in family, and in work. She lives with her husband, and occasionally-visiting college children, in the suburbs of northern Virginia.
