My name is Sheila Taylor. I am the author of Everyday Surrender.
Everyday Surrender is what happens for me on a daily basis. That moment between my eyes opening to a brand new day, and my feet hitting the floor. That moment, that for years was wracked with stress and fear. That moment when I have a decision to make. Will I go forward with dread, or will I surrender every day to the One who redeemed my life?
I have a ritual I go through every morning, with my hands held open wide, I pray:
“Jesus, You are my Redeemer. You were with me yesterday, and You are with me today. You have always been my faithful God, and I know I can go into this day, simply trusting You. Wherever You go, I’m with you. I give my life to You. This is my Everyday Surrender.”
I am married to the incredible Mr Taylor.
Together we are Dad & Mom to three grown-up children- well at least two of them are grown. One is still “in the nest”.
I work outside our home three days a week at a Birth Center, answering phones, making copies, scheduling prenatal appointments, and holding as many precious newborn babies as possible.
I find pleasure in tying an apron around my waist to feed those I love, stargazing with Mr. Taylor, hanging out with my teenagers, digging through vintage antique stores, drinking coffee and long visits with friends, reading, studying God’s Word, and of course, writing.
I am not ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He has redeemed me from the deep pits of abuse and despair. I will spend my life counting His goodness, and sharing His love.
Thank you for visiting me here.
