I want to help you know God.

Hi, I’m Shelby! I am follower of Jesus, a wife, a mother and a coffee guzzler. I’m also a writer, speaker and soon to be podcaster.

When I’m not pouring my heart into studying and teaching the Bible, you’ll probably find me building legos with my three boys or watching way too many episodes of The Office with my husband.

Before you leave this page, I want to let you know that I’m so glad you’re here. Really, I am.

Every word on this website is meant to point you towards the loving embrace of God. I pray that somehow my simple words would help you know God in a significant and relevant way. Because, dear friend, that’s what you were made for and that’s what God desires for you!


My Heart and Soul

pointing your gaze towards jesus

There is a woman that I write, speak, teach, pray and study for.

She is an overly tired mother who just finally got the last child to sleep. She collapses on the couch in exhaustion and begins to replay the day in her head.

She gave all she had today, but it wasn’t enough.

She missed a deadline at work, her marriage is anything but the fairytale she imagined and her adorable children are also completely overwhelming. 

Crushed under the weight of life, she falls to her knees and falls apart. She doesn’t know how she will make it through tomorrow. She needs help. She needs hope. She needs Jesus.

I can see myself reaching out to take her hand. And as she lifts her head to see who has come to help in her time of need I point her gaze to Jesus.

He’s here for her. She is not alone. There is hope and help for every woman in the presence of Jesus.

I may not be able to physically take the hand of every weary woman, but I can extend a hand through the words I publish on this little corner of the internet.

And I pray that every word read here lifts hearts and eyes from the chaos of this life to the Christ who holds us steady.
