Sheila’s first book
“No Greater Joy” has been widely
read and is often used in Ladies Bible Classes and as gifts for
expectant parents. The book is about raising children who will
love the Lord. The last chapter of the book is dedicated to the
husband/wife relationship in Christ.
Her second book,
“Seeking Spiritual Beauty”, was introduced in
February, 2002. This book is an encouragement and source of
strength for women who are not satisfied with the world’s
standard of beauty and who are truly seeking to please the
Master. There is also a 12 week video series entitled

Sheila available for Ladies’ Bible classes and women’s studies.
Sheila has written a book for children
entitled “Does God Love Michael’s Two
Daddies?” While affirming God’s love for every
person, this beautifully written and illustrated book teaches
the Biblical truth of marriage between one man and one woman as
instituted by God. The book is dedicated to parents who are
truly trying to teach their children the eternal truth of God’s
Word and how to live in this world in view of eternity.
Sheila’s newest book,
Princess: Daughter of The King” is written for young
ladies who truly want to become women after God’s own heart. It
covers such topics as: Glorifying God in My Body;
Glorifying God in My Relationships; I Don’t Want to Kiss Dating
