Sherry Boykin is a storyteller and a chronic believer in the power of faith narratives to change lives. She loves to use biblical and personal accounts to help women move beyond their obstacles, glean fresh perspectives on life, and to live differently as a result. 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, enjoy campus ministry and have dorm-parented hundreds of undergraduate men over many years. They are also the proud, exhausted, middle-aged parents of a middle-schooler who speaks half of her 15,000 words per day before seven in the morning.
