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.

Authentic Biblical Womahood -- eye candy for your man


I made this quick, impromptu video after making dinner for my family and realizing I had a couple minutes to spare.

As I prayed about how I might best spend these few minutes, the LORD was kind to remind me of a recent video I had seen on Facebook where a Christian woman was telling other women that they are being "fake" or are wearing a "mask" if they looked halfway decent when and if they work from home. She was stating that if we are being "authentic" then we will stop trying to impress others to try to get them to love and accept us. She taught that women should just be who we are, without makeup, without hair combed, without a shower, etc., just as she was in the video (oh, but she did state that she washed her face).

While I agree with the concept of being authentic, this poor sister missed a major point...CHRIST! I was very disturbed that she not only professes to be a Christian, but she also has a Christian ministry where she is wrongly teaching other women about God and the things of God. It is obvious this sister needs to spend much time under godly and wise teaching rather than consider herself a teacher as it is written:

"Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness"
~James 3:1

Since one of the things the LORD has called me to teach women is biblical womanhood, after much prayer, I made this counter-video so that Christian women can know and live by God's truth written in His word rather than listen to the erroneous teachings of the falsely humble emergent church "Christians".



If your entire focus is on being "authentic" so that others will love you for who you are, realize that your focus is yourself and not the Lord Jesus whom you profess to trust and love.

Beloved sisters in the Lord, I urge you to flee from this deceptive teaching and practice of seemingly exterior "holiness" and be holy as the LORD our God is holy by the righteousness of Christ, who alone can make you holy, acceptable and pleasing before the sight of God (2 Cor 5:21, Rom 3:10-12).

Humble yourself before the Lord and do all things for His glory, for His name to be exalted...not yours.

  1. very interesting post! I haven't seen the video of "no need to shower etc,...) But seen the one that you've posted here.

    My husband hates Makeup so I don't wear any, but he loves long dresses or skirts and long hair, so you've guessed it, I wear my hair long and my dress longer ( even when not totally practical to do certain chore, but that is what please him, so I do it)

    PS He also loves seeing me in a apron, I got a few :-)

  2. Praise God Renee for the wisdom He has shown you! If your husband doesn't like makeup, then you ought not wear it. But there are a lot of women who's husbands prefer some makeup, long hair, etc, but they don't do it b/c they say it's their body and their husband has no right to tell them what to do.

    As you and I both know, this is completely against Scripture.

    I'm so thankful that God has given you a humble and loving heart towards Him and your husband, whom He has given you as you "head". :o)

  4. I am really enjoying the comments on this site. I have reviewed a lot of blogs from women and this one is one of the most positive ones that I have encountered. A lot of blogs that I was reading were bashing men and encouraging women to be too independent. I agree that there is nothing wrong with pleasing your husband as long as it doesn't hurt you in any kind of way. I wish I had a story to tell regarding a relationship with my husband but I am not married as of yet. However, it is bery encouraging to hear positive views of marriage. Although I have gained a lot of wisdom and exprience regarding relationships and marriage from listening to those who are or who have been, my ears never tire of the good news. God bless me with enough wisdom and knowledge to share with others in a book that he blessed me to write called A conversation with a real woman, this is not a plug for my book, its the only testimony that I have regarding relationships. After reading your blogs I used them as confirmation of the wisdom that was placed in my book. A lot of the advice you all had given is in my book. Thanks for the wisdom and having a blog that encourages healthy marriages.
