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.

Giving thanks to God

Giving thanks to God
inspired artwork by Dale Jackson I'M THANKFUL: God is God; that He is holy, righteous, just, good, patient, awesome, sovereign, gracious, merciful and compassionate; for Jesus; that I am saved; that the Holy Spirit is my Counselor; for my darling husband who loves Christ with every breath; two sons who are growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus every day; for faithful brothers and sisters in Christ I have the blessing to fellowship with and work alongside in our Father's Business; for online media so we can reach the multitudes with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and exhort believers to persevere and mature in the faith; for old friends and new ones. I'm thankful to God for so much more, but I believe if I were to pen them all, there would not be enough room in all the world to hold the volumes I would write. "Blessed is the man who makes the LORD his trust, who does not turn to the proud, to those who go astray after a lie! You ha

Thankful for the Reason I am blessed

Thankful for the Reason I am blessed

inspired artwork by Dale Jackson So often, we have read, and many (including me) have said: “I’m so blessed because I’m married to a godly man.” , or “I’m so blessed because my children love the Lord.” , or “I’m so blessed because God has provided me a wonderful job I love...” and so on. While being a wife to a wonderfully godly man, a mother of two sons in Christ, having the joy of walking my short sojourn here with many faithful saints of Christ all over the world are sure and wonderful blessings, none of them are the reasons  why I am blessed...that is, not according to God. Why bother bringing up this point that seems like I’m making a big deal about semantics? Why is it so important to make a distinction between our blessings vs. the reasons  why  we  are blessed? Because remembering the reasons ,  helps to keep our pride and judgmental attitudes in check. My heart hurts: for those who are not married to godly husbands, rather they are married to unrepen

Gluten-free Coconut Macaroons

Gluten-free Coconut Macaroons

I love technology, don't you? I love how God gave wisdom to people, so we can discover what ails us...most of the time. One of the most common food allergies is gluten. There are those who have severe Celiac Disease to those who have a mild intolerance for gluten. Regardless of which spectrum you're on, if you treat your body as it is, the holy temple of God, then you can still live a "normal" and healthy life by staying away from foods with gluten in it. The trouble is, most foods (even sauces) have gluten in them. It's a common ingredient, even in shampoos, soaps, cosmetics and skin care. I have a precious sister in Christ who has a son that is gluten intolerant. He breaks out in rashes and gets quite sick if he's exposed. So she's had to find interesting ways to allow him to still be a kid and enjoy some fun foods, like cookies, but without gluten. I want to share with you a wonderful recipe she has for Coconut Macaroons . It's simple and glut

Running the race with perseverance and wisdom

Running the race with perseverance and wisdom

Before our gracious and wise God allowed me to be physically limited by a rare metabolic myopathy, I used to run...a lot. I especially loved running outside; basking in the beauty of God's creation and worshiping Him as I ran. I would often weep as I was overcome by awe and utter joy of how awesome God is. Since I loved running, I would run in 5K's for different causes. I enjoyed the challenge and the idea that by simply running, God enabled me to help and encourage others. There was this one race I'll never forget. A race where I got smoked by an elderly woman. Initially, I was committed to keeping this precious woman company. She could see that I could run faster, and wanted to. So she kindly smiled at me and said, "Why don't you go on sweetie. I'll either catch up, or see you at the finish line."  I didn't want to leave her alone, but I also wanted to win. So I thanked her and went on. Well, in my pride, I ran fast and hard, just like many w
