Sheila, Cofounder and Co-owner of the Prayer Capsule and author of Growing Through The Storm, is a native of South Dakota who grew up in the prairie on a farm with her family of twelve. She enjoys quiet time with the Lord, being with family, listening to music and inspirational messages, and being in nature which helps her connect with her passion for writing.
When Sheila’s not writing or spending time with her family, you’ll find her gardening, cooking, baking, cleaning, sewing, scrapbooking, taking a walk, riding bicycle, working out, mentoring a friend, or simply sharing conversation with them over a lunch date. She is the mother of two, a son and a daughter, and the grandmother of two grandchildren as of now. She is the stepmother of two, a stepdaughter and a stepson and the wife to a husband whose dream is to see her dream come true. She is a Stephen Minister, Woman to Woman Mentor, a member of the John Maxwell Team certified to coach, teach, speak, and train, and three-time attendee of the She Speaks Conference hosted through Proverbs 31 Ministries. In the events of two failed marriages, she drew close to the Lord, which grew her faith in Him. She is passionate about helping others to seek our Lord in their times of need and to put their hope in His promises. It is her hope that her experiences will inspire others to believe there is power in prayer. She encourages others to put their trust in the Lord, to have faith in His loving care to provide for their needs, and to develop a relationship with Him through trials they may face. She is a child of our Heavenly Father, Who is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-loving and the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow!
I dedicate Growing Through The Storm to my parents who’ve taught me what love is and how to parent lovingly; to my son and daughter who’ve given a love so true and helped me become the mom, grandmother, and woman I am; and to my husband who loves unconditionally.
