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.

WFW - Uniquely Blessed Brothers



I've recently been thanking God constantly for the special relationship He has granted my boys. They've been best friends since the day our youngest was born and they're convinced they will be until the day they die. We believe them!

The middle picture is our youngest son's first day of Kindergarten and our oldest son's first day of 2nd grade. Big brother was so proud to have his little brother finally attending school with him. And little brother was just as proud and excited to be going to the same school as his really cool, big brother! This picture was taken eight years ago and their not so little anymore.

The two pictures on the side were taken from our trip to CO a couple of summers ago. We'd have more recent photos, but I'm just not really quick with the camera and very rarely remember to bring one anywhere I go.

Our wonderful sons are now 13 1/2 and almost 16 years old. My how time flies when we're having fun....and we sure are! We rejoice in our Savior and thank God constantly for what He has done for us!

Soon, Michael will be getting his license and the first thing he said is, "I can't wait to take Kevin everywhere! We're going to have such a great time together! It's so great that we're brothers, and best friends too!" All of Michael's friends hang out with Kevin and have always welcomed him as part of their group. They always have. It's like Kevin's got a whole band of big brothers! His big brother wouldn't have it any other way. Michael has always had only one rule if you wanted to hang out with him, "My little brother comes too, or no one comes." And it's just always been that way!

  2. Sunny,

    You are such a blessing. Your boys are AWESOME!! If God should choose to grant us another child, I pray that the same will be true of them. My extended familes have always been so distant (God is restoring that now, PTL), but I never really knew the love of aunts or uncles because of all the strife. I didn't understand why people would get so upset if their aunt or uncle died when I was a kid, of course, I do now, but back then I just thought, "So..it's just your aunt." Isn't that terrible. When my SIL and I met, we both expressed a deep desire to always keep our kids close and our family close and praise God, my brothers and I are just that. My SIL and I are like sisters...in fact...I was sharing with her some of the things you taught me about Biblical Submission the other night. Some of the things she said were, "Every WOMAN needs to hear this!!" and "Wow!! I feel like a brand new Christian again, I am so humbled and I can't wait to get into God's presence to learn more about this!!" So Sunny, again, I give you a big hardy thank you. I learned a new definition for ministry the other day and I definitely think it applies to you: "Ministry is when someone hears what YOU have to say about Jesus, and they don't want more of YOU, they want more of HIM!!!" That is my prayer for my life and I want you to know that is how you are to me. The presence of Jesus is so all over you that I just love to be with you, but more than that, I long to be with HIM more because of how He uses you to speak to others.

    God bless you dear sister...I can't wait for our "face to face" meeting someday in the presence of our Lord!!

  8. My children are close, too, and I am so glad. I am not so blessed in that area, as I am estranged from my siblings (their choice, not mine). But God, in His mercy, has blessed me with many brothers and sisters in Christ. Amen!!

  10. i find it so wonderful when our children work together and be themselves and half fun.. i know with my oldest starting school this year it has really shown me how much they rely on each other and love each other!

  11. SO, SO, SO encouraging! My little girls are this way right now and I've always thought it was something they just had to grow out of. I secretly prayed that would never happen. I love to hear that your boys have remained so close! This is one of my strongest desires for them. Last week Olivia started preschool and I had to carry Madeline away, literally kicking and screaming "I Miss Ya-Ya!" over and over. In a funny way it made me smile to know they think so much of each other. Great verse and I really like how you put it with the pictures. Thanks for the "hope."
