Friday Sisterhood with Sherri Shackleford

Family Status:
​Married with Children! Three kids - My oldest is a girl, 14, then two boys, ages 13 and 8 ​

What Is Your Favorite Beverage:
​I like a good latte. Nothing fancy. No extra this or that. No mocha. No whip. No fancy blah, blah, blah. Just a latte. Cold in the summer, hot in the winter :)​

What Is Your Favorite Food:
​I like anything somebody else cooks and cleans up. Always. Whether it's a restaurant or someone else cooks. Don't care!​

What Is Your Favorite Thing to do During Free Time:
​I read as much as I can. I'm also kind of a movie buff. But not arty movies. My favorite movie this year has been Guardians of the Galaxy. ​

Who Has Been the Most Influential Person in Your Life:

 ​Absolutely my husband! I wouldn't be here without him. He's been a great support and mentor. ​
First Book You Fell in Love With:
​ The Little Princess. I wanted to breath that story!

A Book You Wish You’d Written:
​The Bell Jar​

First Book Published:
​Winning the Widow's Heart. I finaled in the ACFW Genesis contest and voila - Harlequin said they were interested. The rest is history...​

Most Recent Book:
The Cattleman Meets His Match is in stores now!!!
Out Next:
The Engagement Bargain will release in February of 2015.

How Many Have You Written:
​I'm currently working on my fifth book.
​ (I can't even believe I'm saying that!)​

What Do You Know Now That You Wish You’d Known Then:
​Hmmm, it's probably good I didn't know that each book would get harder and not easier. The more I know, the more I know I don't know! I also didn't realize this is a 24 hour a day, seven days a week job. There's no vacation! Not really. There's always something percolating.

What is Your Favorite Bible Story:
​ ​​I can't really answer this one because different stories have spoken to me at different times in my life. That's the beautiful thing about the Bible. ​Right now I've been thinking a lot about how Peter ​ is beckoned by Jesus and​
steps out of his storm-tossed boat onto the unsettled Sea of Galilee. In that instant, ​Peter has perfect faith. ​I've been thinking a lot about those moments between faith and fear.​

What is Your Favorite Bible Verse:
​Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
​Philippians 1:6


What is Your Favorite Hymn:

​I should have something less obvious, but On Eagle's Wings will always be a favorite

What is an Ongoing Prayer Request You Have:

Please pray for Wendy Kinney who is ​​battling cancer. ​

  4. On Eagles Wings is one of my favorites, too. And it's a relief to me to hear that others think each book gets harder.

  6. Beautiful pic! And I'm so with you on being happy with anything as long as I don't have to cook it. It took me until I was in my thirties to admit to myself that I'd rather do dishes than cook, but there you have it.
