Sherry's Bio (264 Words)

Sherry Boykin is a storyteller and a chronic believer in the power of faith narratives to change lives. Her audiences love her use of biblical and personal accounts to help women move beyond their obstacles, glean fresh perspectives on life, and to live differently as a result. As a transplanted, native New Yorker, her experiences in urban and suburban ministries, Peruvian Amazon jungle missions, long-term singleness, marriage & family, and men’s dorm-living shape her life and provide a colorful backdrop from which to share the Word of God.  

Sherry loves hot weather, canoe launches, good movies, and long talks. She and her husband, Ted, are the proud, exhausted, middle-aged parents of an artsy, scientific Gen-Z-er who keeps them on their toes. They also enjoy campus ministry and have dorm-parented hundreds of undergraduate men over many years.    

Sherry is the founder of Faith and Tales, a member of Christian Communicators, and the author of But-Kickers: Growing Your Faith Bigger Than Your But.  She is also a member of the speakers’ bureau for RAINN (Rape, Abuse, Incest, National Network).  Sherry has been featured on NBC/WBRE’s PA-Live! and interviewed for articles published in Time magazineThe New York Times, Better Homes and Gardens, and Parents magazine.
