About Sheryl

Welcome!  I am honored you stopped to visit.

These are a few things about me…

I love chocolate.  I have been known on occasion to leave a sweater in the car with chocolates in the pocket, only to find it melted through days later.

I am married to my high school sweetheart,  who after a ten-year hiatus, I ran into at a wake of all things.  When I saw him standing there, I whispered to a friend that my heart fluttered.  Word got back and we were married nine months later.   After twenty-five years, and some pretty significant ups and downs, we continue to grow up together and learn what real intimacy means.

I use to think a good “Christian” marriage meant you never argued and you always got along.  What I am learning is real intimacy is all about being willing to fight, tell the truth about how you feel, take responsibility for what you want, and quit blaming the other person.

I have three amazing kids, who truly are a gift.  I have to wonder when the Bible says that our children are a gift from God, if it’s because parenthood will grow and stretch our character and our faith more than anything else we can imagine. They motivate me daily to go for my life, and I want them to be inspired by the life I live.

I know well the daily struggles of parenting a child through challenging and turbulent waters. I have ridden the parenting roller coaster through angry outbursts, ADHD, despair, addiction, healing, and recovery.

I know the feeling of being alone and not knowing where to turn, the feeling that God is not hearing my prayers, or if he is I must have done something terribly wrong.

I know the difference between life and death is being in authentic relationships where others are willing to be vulnerable and tell the truth.

I know I wouldn’t be who and where I am today if it hadn’t been for people who loved and cared enough about me to challenge me and allow me to be uncomfortable in the process.

I believe God most often reveals his love and awesomeness through others, and I call this “Jesus with skin on”(don’t know who coined that phrase, but it is a good one).

I am most passionate for women to know they are not alone, to give them hope, that whatever they are going through, is not as bad as they think it is, because we are all a lot more alike than we think we are.

I want women to know that if it is as bad as they think it is – they are powerful, they will be okay, and they have what it takes to make their life what they want it to be, and be who they want to be.

I want to give back all what has been give to me.  Today, I am a Certified Life Coach and passionate about coming alongside other women who desire to become their best selves and positively impact their relationships in their family.

I aspire for women to discover God’s best for their lives, to hear their stories and how it has uniquely shaped who they are.

I seek to live out the principles I want to inspire in others and have devoted over 10 years to my own personal growth and training and 22 years seeking to live out my faith.

Over the last twenty years, I have been learning what the abundant life really means.  I strive daily to walk out my faith and be my most magnificent Christ-like self, one day at a time (I am still working on that “moment by moment thing”).

I hope you will join me on the journey,

Love, peace and grace,

Sheryl

  1. I really enjoyed your blog and the many stories shared on there. the one that talked about feelings really was important for me to read. I can be very passive sometimes when it comes to my feelings in my marriage. I made up my mind that i wanted to transform my life this is how i found you i just google it. I know it was God because there has been a battle going on inside and after i read your blog this thing just broke. Sometimes i feel alone but i know i am not. I just want to say thank you.

    • Felishia – Thank you for your comment. It means so much to me. I have been away from blogging lately and your comment encourages me to write more. Wanting to transform our lives and asking for God’s help is the first step!

      • Amen to that keep up the good work if you have touched my life i am sure there are others you will touch through your ministry.

  2. Thank you for repsonding to my blog Sheryl. Your words and messages resonate. Wishing you well, Catherine
