Meet Sheila

When I started my blog, Momfessions, in January 2008, I wanted a Mommy blog.  I wanted to be witty, and funny, and deep, and helpful.  I’m not sure I’m any of those things, but here I am anyway. Momfessions was my place to share my thoughts, write my heart, show my eye, and connect with friends. I wrote about poop a lot. No seriously, a lot. Most of all though, I love to write about the wonderful ways God redeems my messes and sanctifies me through this mommy gig. I feel the most alive when I’m writing about God’s grace and the story of redemption it is continually weaving through my life.

I have spent almost a year thinking through a name change over here. I still love Momfessions and I’m thankful it’s been my little corner of the interwebs for eight years. But I ultimately decided to move my writing over to The name and address don’t really matter, but I feel like this change allows me some freedom to post not strictly about my misadventures in motherhood.

I’m still the same girl married to my hottie Hubby (for over a decade now!!!). Seriously, who are those wannabe adults?


We have three crazy awesome bio kids, Ladybug, Stinkbug and Doodlebug:


and we brought our sweet daughter, Lovebug, home from Bulgaria in December 2015 after almost five years in an adoption process!

After living overseas for six years, we transitioned back to the US. I am teaching preschool four days a week and I am an ambassador for Noonday Collection, gathering women in my spare time to talk about building a flourishing world together where children are cherished, people have dignified jobs, women are empowered, and we are connected.


I also wrote a little book baby that was born into the world in August 2014 that you can find on Amazon or CreateSpace.

I am writing for wandering hearts… let’s just say it takes one to know one.
