Sharol received her Bachelor of Science from the college of Home Economics of Oklahoma State University in 1978.  For seven years after college, Sharol worked for two different interior design firms. In 1986, along with her Mother and Mother-in-law, Sharol opened a fabric store in downtown Moore. They enjoyed what they did, but it was time to move on to the next adventure- her daughter started school- so they closed the business in 1992.  She now works full time as the office manager in her husband’s home based business. 

Sharol married David Cottingham in 1978 and they have one daughter, ShaLyn, who teaches Pre-K in Norman and has her Master's degree in Counseling at the University of North Texas. 

Sharol is a charter member of Southpark Baptist Church, coming from the parent church of Regency Park Baptist in Moore. She has taught in the youth and preschool areas, but her true love and calling is the Preschool Ministry. That is where the foundations are laid for a future life of commitment to the Lord. She was the Preschool Ministry Coordinator 1993-2002 and the Preschool and Children’s Ministry Coordinator from 2004-2012.

Sharol has been involved in ministries across the state of Oklahoma. She was secretary for the Oklahoma Baptist Part-Time and Volunteer Preschool and Children’s Directors. She was a State Consultant for Preschool Ministries for the BGCO. Sharol was also the treasurer for the Southern Baptist Bi-vocational Ministers Association for several years. Currently she is Union Baptist Association’s VBS Director and has taught Associational VBS training clinics for at least the last 16 years.

When time allows Sharol loves crafts shows, junking, sewing, quilting, crafting and scrapbooking.
