Shepherd-and-sheep (2)Sheep Shed is a non-profit Christian Mentoring Ministry that serves both individuals and groups.

Mentoring Ministry prepares individuals for life challenges, prayer, coaching and teaching through self evaluation and participation in small groups.

Individual Counseling helps build a better relationship with God, others and yourself through examining boundaries, prayer, teaching, support, encouragement, healing and spiritual growth.

At any given time in our journey through life we are either a shepherd or one of the sheep; we lead or follow.The goal is to keep moving. However we find ourselves repeating unwanted patterns and not where we would like to be in life. Sheep Shed Mentoring Ministers identify the roots of unwanted behavior and walk you through the healing process  to clean up the past, help you identify your gifts, know your purpose and move into it.

It is our belief that Jesus Christ is the ultimate healer. Share the Good News that Jesus Christ heals the brokenhearted and sets the captives free (Luke 4:18-19).

Heal. Equip. Go forth to share the Good News.

To Move or Not to Move!

MountainsOne summer my family and I were offered a home to use for two weeks in the mountains of North Carolina. It was the first time my whole family vacationed together.

The home is located on a lake and of course my five grandsons were very excited about fishing from the bank.  However, access to the lake was limited due to overgrown trees which left a very small space at the shore. We needed more space and I felt that it would be helpful to have some of the trees removed that were in the way.

On the first morning, while I was pondering the whole situation, I heard the sound of a lawnmower and chopping coming from the lot next door. I walked outside and around the corner at the front of the property I saw two women, one was pushing a lawnmower and the other was chopping trees and brush.

All In!
In my dream…

I walked in to view my coffin and found myself aware of the young man who was arranging things, but couldn’t find the cloth that was to be used to cover my face in the coffin.

The priest closed the coffin anyway. The ribbon that was used to tie around the coffin wasn’t long enough to make the bows so I helped to try to make the bows with what was available.

The coffin was closed the whole time but I was aware that I was in it. The bows couldn’t be formed but I knew there was pretty ribbon coming on the arrangement for the service.

Behold thy Mother

Behold thy Mother

John 19: 25, 26  “Now there stood by the cross of Jesus his Mother…When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son!  Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother!”

As I think about Mary and John I see an interesting progression that happened to them and will happen to us if we allow it. I think about Mary as mother chosen to be the one to bring Jesus to earth, to nurture and care for him as he was growing up not knowing what was ahead simply doing what she was called to do and learning as she went.  The scriptures support the idea that Jesus knew a mother’s love, yet he never called her mother. Mary had a mother’s love to give but progressed to mother heart.

An example in my own life would be… When one of my sons was very young he would run up to me and throw his arms around my knees and say, “I need you mama!”  I knew a mother’s love in our small family circle and I protected it and didn’t share it.
