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 sheilastover.com. 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:

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.
