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.

An Unexpected Answer

An Unexpected Answer

My real relationship with God began with an unexpected answer to a one-line prayer during a self-made crisis many years ago. You may have heard this before.

I attended a Zig Ziglar seminar in Dallas, Texas in 1982 where I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit in the bathroom at 4 a.m. That’s a story in itself.

It was business as usual when I returned home and intense because it was the end of the quarter and I wanted to be on the ladder of success. To do that I needed to place an order that day.

My prayer: “Lord, today is the end of the quarter; I have $500 and need $500 more how are we going to do this? Amen.”

It was a cry of desperation, and frustration. I did not know how to pray any other way than that. I didn’t expect Him to answer and He didn’t, right then.

However, in the mail that day there was an envelope, the minute I touched it I knew it was important. I noticed it was from VISA as I opened to read: “Due to your outstanding credit we have enclosed for your convenience a check for $500.”

I was so excited and shared it with Sweet Honey. He listened and then looked up at me with that “What are you thinking?” look on his face. I could see his disapproval so I didn’t use the check. In my devotion the next morning I read “Oh Yea of little faith” Did I miss it? Doubt began to seep in at that point.

Of course, all kinds of issues could enter in here, as I shouldn’t wait until the last minute to scurry around and meet my goal.

Second, consider the debt before going into it and the ability to pay if off without further interest. Many things like that.

However, learning to expect God to answer but not always immediate and not always as a voice in my head became a way of life for me.

I began to seek him and I found Him in books I read, clouds in the sky, what people say, in the garden, in the mail and many more.

This one thing really formed and gave direction to Sheep Shed Mentoring Ministry.

My goal is always to get people to the feet of Jesus so God can touch them with the answer they seek and want more. Their journey begins and through the experience, they go deeper with God and grow spiritually.

In the years since that first prayer, I have witnessed over and over people who come from far and wide who come in or call with an issue and as we unpack it God meets them, sometimes with revelation knowledge, healing, clarity of a troubling situation, and the list goes on.

Their journey begins.

Remember Alice?

Remember Alice?

Alice in Wonderland is walking down a path when she comes to a fork in the road and doesn’t know which way to go.

The Cheshire cat in the tree asks…

“Where are you going?”

Her response: “I don’t know”.

His reply: “Then it doesn’t make any difference”.

Where are you going, and what is your purpose, are you on the right track, or are there annoyances that keep you from Your Journey? What is your purpose?

At the Sheep Shed, we have a compass to follow and use to guide when we get off track and need to redirect. We could be repeating the unwanted patterns in life, haven’t dealt with unfinished business from past relationships, or present conflict we can’t deal with. And most important when we want to get closer to God. We use the four basic laws written into the universe that affect all of our lives as surely as gravity.

Your Direction: Let’s Get Things Straight

Would you believe me if I said, Second Born twin will not let anyone else do dishes while he is here? It happened this summer…

Summer is a good time to learn something new as long as there’s fun attached. It is also a time to delegate the work that never ends especially if you have children home all the time. Therefore, I decided to find a way to delegate the routine never ending chores like dishes, washing clothes, putting away toys etc, dusting and of course vacuuming. Until now, I have not been successful interest dwindles after a time or two and we are back to square one. I decided to consider the strengths of the boys and then find the right motivation and follow through to be able to hand the job totally to them. My mode of operation is always, I do it you watch, we do it, and then you do it, and I will check it. Job well done without supervision is yours.
