A few years ago I was absolutely obsessed with politics. I read the news voraciously, I devoured blogs, and I complained nonstop about the country’s direction and the political system.

There was just one problem. I wasn’t actually changing anything. I could see what needed changing, but I was putting all sorts of emotional energy into worrying about something that I couldn’t actually do much about.

Whoops! Looks like you came across an older article that has been archived.

I’ve got over 2,500 posts on this site, and sometimes they aren’t relevant anymore or, like this one, I decide to update it for current events and rerun it. You can find the new version here:

You Can’t Change the World. You Can Change Your Family.

I’m Sheila, and I write all about how when we invest in our marriages and our kids, we end up with happier lives, more effective lives, and more purposeful lives. And in the long-run, our relationships are much more fulfilling!

I tend to write mostly about marriage, with some “bigger picture” purpose articles thrown in.

See everything I write about here. 

A lot of what I write, though, is answering reader questions about hard topics. I’ve got a round-up of the most important questions right here:

And you can also watch me answering some of those questions!

The new version of this post actually grew out of a conversation I was having on Instagram. That’s where most of my thoughts start!

I like to help women see beyond our culture’s superficiality and the pat answers to problems our churches often give, and help build strong, fulfilling, and passionate God-honouring relationships. That’s what I do. And if you follow the rabbit trails (just click on some links in the sidebar, or the links above!),  you’ll find a lot of material to keep you busy.

And hopefully a bunch that will help you.
