I’m Sheri. Welcome to my blog.
I love to tell stories and make people laugh. There are always too many words fluttering around inside my head and they desperately need a place to land, if for no other reason than to give my brain some breathing room.
Hence this blog.
I’m a nerd. I’ve spent a good portion of my life sitting on a piano bench and singing on a stage. I love the smell of crayons and new books, and freshly sharpened yellow #2 pencils make me very happy. As a lifelong Texan, I don’t think I could ever move because I would go into serious Tex-mex withdrawal.
I’m also a bit of a snob when it comes to music, literature, and food. Especially cake. I’m a total cake snob. No one should ever have to suffer through a piece of dry, tasteless cake. Please don’t waste your calories that way! Come on over and I’ll feed you some real cake.
My journey with God has been filled with wonder, struggle, and acceptance. It’s a beautiful thing that I long to share with you. I’ve learned so much from my story, and more than anything, I want to encourage you as you live out yours.
You see, I love Jesus with all my heart, but it took me a long time to believe that He really and truly loves me.
- I want more than anything to be a real, authentic servant of Jesus Christ.
- I want to love the way He loves.
- I want to live the abundant and exciting life He promises.
- And I want you to know Him and the power of His love, too.
A lot of my story includes our family’s special needs journey. If you’re the parent of a child with a disability, you’ll find lots of encouragement and affirmation here. I want you to know I’m on your side and I get it.
And if you wrestle with your faith — especially with how it ties into the whole church aspect — well, I hope you’ll find some comfort and camaraderie here as well. I try to tell it like it is when it comes to struggles and heartaches in the church.
I’ve even written a guide just for you — called ‘Redefining the Quiet Time.’ If you’re feeling spiritually burnt out, or your prayer life has gone stale, you’re not alone! I’ll walk you through the steps of recreating and redefining your personal time with God, transforming it from a drudgery to a fulfilling, meaningful experience!
In addition to writing this blog, I work freelance as a professional pianist. Music is a huge part of my life.
Which is part of the reason we make up songs for everything over here.
- Need your car cleaned out? We’ve got a song for that!
- Need your kid to stop biting people? We’ve got a song for that!
- Need your toddler to poop on the potty? Yup, we’ve got a song for that, too!
So it just makes sense to me that my story should be written not only in words, but in lyrics.
Lyrics for life.
‘Cause as far as I’m concerned, life is a song that needs to be lived and sung with gusto. Let’s get singing, shall we?
