About Me

My photo

Hey there, I'm Sunny Shell, a wretch saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ the Lord. I'm married to the most incredible man on earth, who loves Jesus more than he loves me, and we have two precious adult sons.

The compassionately endures me through my metabolic disease (since 2004) that enables me to be more prayerful and careful about commitments I make and helps me to make the best use of my short time here on earth.

Psalm 27 - The LORD Will Take Me In


"What shall I render to the LORD for all His benefits to me?
I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the LORD,
I will pay my vows to the LORD in the presence of all His people."
~ Psalm 116:12-14

And so I shall. I shall lift up the cup of salvation and I will exalt the Name of Jesus Christ as I share how He chose me for Himself and with His great compassion, amazing grace and endless mercy, saved my depraved, wretched soul from the bondage of sin, Satan and eternal torment in the Lake of Fire - Hell.

I pray as I share this, that you will be encouraged and inspired to draw deeper into the wellspring of Life, who is the LORD God Almighty, through His Son, our Savior, Jesus the Christ. I also pray that your heart will be more stirred by God's salvation of my soul, His protection and every demonstration of His undeserved, loving-kindness lavished on me, more than you are moved by the pain and persecution I have been blessed to endure.

I want you to fully grasp the generosity and glory of God's salvation and His kindness in choosing to save me by first sharing with you who I was before.

You'll never really know and appreciate how sweet, sweet is, unless you've tasted sour.

My Life Before I Knew Christ

I am a Korean-born, citizen of Heaven and an ambassador of Christ here on earth. I am the youngest of three (3) children, to first generation immigrant parents. As can be imagined, it was very difficult growing up in the south during the 70's. Although segregation had been abolished by law, the people in the towns were still practicing it secretly. Sure, all the signs went down, but the hearts of the people remained just as stubborn and wicked as they had before the law to abolish segregation was passed.

My parents took lowly jobs in which they received much abuse from their employers and co-workers. They worked very hard, for very little money and endured much ridicule and exclusion. There seemed to be no escape from this torment as returning to Korea was worse. They were truly between a rock and a hard place and chose to stay in America as it was the lesser of two evils. My parents were Buddhists and did not know the LORD, therefore were very susceptible to the wiles of our enemy the devil. The devil seduced my parents into believing that it was "okay" to find their own escape from this very challenging life of being immigrants during our countries tumultuous times.....and so they did.

Up until the age of three I was "Daddy's little girl" and a complete spoiled brat. We were poor, but in my sin, I managed to demand my poor immigrant parents give me everything I wanted. I still remember being only 3 years old, wanting to go run an errand with my dad because I knew I could get him to buy me something. We barely had enough money for rent and food, but I didn't care, their struggle was their problem and I wanted stuff and lots of it! After causing much strife and dissension between my parents, my Daddy, once again, gave in and took me on his errand. He bought me a teddy bear....and I still have it! My teddy bear is probably older than most of you, he's 36, nearly 37 years old! And that was the last memory I have of being "Daddy's little girl", as my life drastically changed shortly after that day.
