Welcome to my site! My name is Sharon Hodde (sounds like “Hah-dee”) Miller, and here’s a little bit about me:

 

My husband, Ike, and I both lead Bright City Church in Durham, NC. Our church launched in September 2018, and it has been a wild, fun, and stretching adventure. We LOVE our church, and if you live in the RDU area or are passing through, come say hello!

 

Ike and I are the parents to three awesome kids who fill our house with noise and joy. Isaac (8), Coen (6), and Sadie (3) are seriously the best and we don’t know how we got so lucky to be their mom and dad.
In addition to leading Bright City, I also write and travel around the country speaking. My first book, Free of Me: Why Life is Better When It’s Not about You released in 2017, and my second book, Nice: Why We Love to Be Liked and How God Calls Us to More, released in August 2019!

 

I also earned my PhD at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School on the topic of women and calling, and I have been a regular contributing author to sites like Propel, She Reads Truth, and Christianity Today.

 

And most importantly, I am a Christian, and if you want to know more about what that means, click here.
Ever since we planted Bright City, I have been less active on this site, but the best place to find out what I’m up to and what is on my mind is over at Instagram, and you can find me HERE. If you would like to contact me, or reach me about speaking, then you are in the right place, and I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for stopping by!
