Sylvia Harney has the unique ability to boldly share her faith, whether appearing before a secular audience or within the Christian community. Sylvia is an entertainer and speaker, who rediscovered her gift for laughter in her early twenties while attending Belmont University in Nashville, TN. The disappearance of laughter in her life is a part of her personal story which she now shares with groups across America. However, that is not the primary focus of her powerful messages.
She has appeared on Fan Fair, and the Music City News Awards Show and has been Goodwill Industries Spokesperson for the Southeastern United States. She is a frequent guest on major radio and television talk programs as well as morning television in major markets across the country.
In her first appearance on WSM’s Grand Ole Opry, Sylvia stood alongside her dear friend, the legendary Minnie Pearl. She has shared the stage with Barbara Mandrell, Roy Acuff, Floyd Cramer, and numerous others.
The real impact and strength of this young woman is her determination to reach for and grasp all that the Heavenly Father desires her to have…His presence… His freedom… His joy! She most certainly walks in that freedom and treasures the privilege of sharing the way that anyone can learn to “lay down” the tethers that keep us locked up inside and nailed to the ground.
“Sylvia was truly a blessing. Her testimony was powerful and her entire delivery was so engaging. I have heard many positive comments from the ladies who attended.”
“WOW! What a weekend. You were absolutely fantastic! Not only were you funny, but you provided powerful truths and Biblical insights that have challenged us all. Our evaluation forms reflect raving reviews of how God has used you to inform, encourage and instruct our ladies to surrender their ‘words’ and ‘worlds’ to Him! Thank you for your sweet, humble spirit and your willingness to laugh at life and enjoy people.”
“It was such a joy to minister with you in Mississippi!” You did a wonderful job encouraging and uplifting the ladies. God is really using you!”
