I am a writer, speaker and broadcaster with a keen interest in what makes life deeply worthwhile. I have written several books along this line, been featured in publications like The Times, Sunday Telegraph and Christianity Today, and write regularly for Our Daily Bread, a devotional read by 90 million people daily. I am a presenter of Pause for Thought on BBC Radio 2’s Zoe Ball Breakfast Show (heard by 9 million people daily), contribute to media across the UK, US, Europe and Australia, and speak at events around the world.
Beyond that I am husband to Merryn (a medical researcher at Oxford University who is way more clever than me), ‘big dog’ to Rupert (an adorable cockapoo with apricot paws and a cheeky grin), and make Oxford, UK, my home. You can read my full bio here.
I Write Books.
Much of my work relates to my books. Here are some key titles:
The Making of Us: Who We Can Become When Life Doesn’t Go as Planned What if losing an identity can help us discover who we really are? What if the adversity we face can release our greatest gifts into the world? ‘An evocative reminder that our lives are part of a much larger story, not merely one of our own making’ – Karen Swallow Prior
Resurrection Year: Turning Broken Dreams into New Beginnings ‘After ten years of tear-soaked prayers and dashed hopes, Sheridan Voysey and his wife come to a heart-breaking conclusion—their dream of having a child is over. One part spiritual memoir and one part love story, Resurrection Year is an honest, heart-felt book about starting again.’
Reflect with Sheridan My latest book, pairing 70 stories on joy, wonder, meaning, belonging, compassion, callings, seasons, change and hope, with stunning photography to create a beautiful gift book. ‘Sheridan’s wisdom is as deep as his inkwell… a highly recommended book from a brilliant author’ – Paul Kerensa
Resilient: Your Invitation to a Jesus-Shaped Life How can we stay strong when the storms of life hit—when a spouse leaves, unemployment strikes, or our dreams fail to come true? ‘Resilient is hopeful, practical, and challenging’ – Sarah Bessey
Unseen Footprints: Encountering the Divine Along the Journey of Life It might be a spectacular sunset. A kind deed by a stranger. Or an “aha moment” that leaves you sensing there’s more to this life than what you can see. Something bigger. Perhaps Someone bigger. ‘Brimming with evocative stories and subversive parables that coax us into the complex search for meaning’ – Alan Hirsch
I Speak at Events.
I speak regularly at events large and small, and have had the privilege of giving keynote addresses in various cities across the United Kingdom, United States, Europe, Australia and South Africa.

A Gift for You.
What does it take to craft a deeply meaningful life? I believe the answer lies in pursuing joyful spirituality, recycling adversity into growth and service, finding a personal vocation, and forging deep connections with others. I hope you’ll find some rich content here to grow in these life themes. Here is a gift you might like to that end:
