Sharon Norris Elliott delivers powerful messages through her books, articles, devotions, and speaking engagements in which she not only touches the heart and tickles the funny bone, but also encourages her audiences to “live significantly.” She is a high school vice-principal and teaches English and journalism in Inglewood, California near where she and her husband raised five children (three sons and two daughters). Elliott is the women’s Bible study leader and teacher of the young adult Sunday school class at South Los Angeles Baptist Church. This is her fifth book.

Publisher Description

In a market full of books on parenting, author Sharon Norris Elliott takes a unique perspective in Raising Boys to Be Like Jesus. Realizing that today’s busy parents need simple yet profound help with raising well-balanced, spiritually healthy sons, Elliott draws practical application (the simple) from the life of Christ (the profound).

Through Jesus’ example, including specific scriptural references, the author offers sound advice for addressing tough topics including:

  • facing temptation
  • choosing to be a leader
  • developing and maintaining healthy friendships
  • relating to and respecting women
  • handling money

“Step Aside” segments at the end of each chapter are designed to assist the reader in personalizing each principle.

This book is a practical and powerful resource for parents, caregivers, and Christian educators, and is especially ideal for single moms who are seeking the ultimate male role model for the absent father in their son’s life.

Author/Artist Review

Author: Sharon Norris Elliott
Located in: Inglewood, CA

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a Christian, a wife, a mom, an educator, an author, and a speaker. In general, I am an encourager interested in seeing others live significantly for Christ.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  From the time of their birth, I wanted my sons to reach their highest potential. I realized they'd never do that without being first dedicated to God. If God could trust them, I could trust them. God presented Himself to us in Jesus Christ who lived as the perfect man before us. I could find no better example for my sons to emulate but Him; thus, my goal to raise them to be like Christ.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope my readers will understand that raising a generation of young men who honor God is our best bet for a future society that continues to honor God as well. Jesus did everything right because He was totally dependent upon His Father. Our boys will see success in their personal lives, families, and careers only as they live as men of God - men who live as Jesus lived.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My influences are my father, Rev. Dr. Vincent Norris; husband, James Elliott; and sons, Jerod, Matthew, and Mark. These are the best men on the planet. My dad and husband are examples of what good Christian men and fathers should be, and my sons are living testimonies of what God can do for young men in our current society.
