About me

Hi there! I’m Sherri and I live in SRQ- which is the airport code for my stomping grounds in Sarasota, Florida. Beach essentials are stored in my car at all times. One never knows when the opportunity of retreat-to-my-favorite-shoreline could arise (it’s a whole 15 minutes – be jealous). Though I was not born here, the salt water and sandy beaches reside deep in my soul. May God strike me dead if I stop being grateful for this place I call home.

I have survived raising two daughters, and we have all survived two divorces. So a lot of what I share is along the lines of, well, survival. Grace is a huge part of my life. As one who has received so much, I try to generously dispense it as well. I know how much encouragement means and perhaps my thoughts that spill out onto these pages will provide some to you.

Twenty-five years after escaping graduating high school, I enrolled in college. The lack of a degree was one regret I could fix, and I have held student-status ever since. The challenge of higher math remains steady (why, for the love?). But then I discovered how much writing helped balance all of that dull and boring left brain activity.

Where I find my peace…

My work days are spent at a Jesus centered church that we describe as the island of misfit toys. It’s never dull when you sit on the front row of what God is doing. Most days we laugh more than we cry. Above all, we strive to be authentic while trying to keep the “redneck” to a minimum.

While in pursuit of a business degree – and more Statistical work ahead, I continue to write for my own sanity. Don’t let that stop you from comments and shares, though. Everyone loves a little kindness.
