About this site

Did you ever need an outlet because your life is so full that it is running over?

My brain is full, and so is my heart, so I needed some place to share all that has runs around inside of me. The last few years have been a time of much growth, change, and learning in my life. The more I learn, the more questions I have and the more I find myself musing about life, purpose, meaning, value, and what I am here for.

Please stop by for visit any time you want some food for thought. I have plenty of questions and things to think about, but there may not be many answers. You are welcome to comment and dialogue. I would love the interaction. The things I post come mostly from what I see, hear, and read from others. It is people like you who inspire me to think, grow, and change. If I was left to myself I would be happy staying in my nice little rut!

Sherie Drew is single (never married), and lives near Portland, Oregon. She works a day job to pay the bills, but her real work is an equipper, advocate, speaker, and aspiring author.

Raised in the church as the daughter of a pastor, Sherie grew into faith and a life of service. She has spent more than 25 years as a believer who has been actively involved in churches and ministry, especially to students. During the last few years Sherie wrestled through issues of disillusionment and disconnection with how she witnessed and experienced the Church and Christianity. Never doubting who God was, but struggling with her journey of understanding and relating to Him and wrestling with a lot of the theologies and doctrines taught by churches, she asked some of the hardest core questions that we can ask in our faith. She learned that the foundations of our faith, our image of God, and our understanding of our identity are vitally important to understanding and living a life that is transformed and vitally connected to God. Now she is taking all she has learned to be an advocate and activist for others who are struggling through this same journey, or those who just want to deepen their walk with God and daily live out a life of true commitment.

After years of serving in ministry within the church Sherie is now very actively involved in serving the community around her in practical ways and inspiring others to share in that work. She is passionate about the disunity and brokenness that exists in the body of Christ, and how that keeps the church from reaching outside of itself to those in need. She is very actively involved with local organizations in Portland that are working to unify and connect churches, serve the practical needs in the community, reach the disillusioned and dechurched, and building firm foundations in students and young adults to help them be the leaders in our churches and communities in the future.

Sherie also is a strong supporter of several movements, organizations, and efforts that are working on national or global levels to restore hope, health, and life to those in need. These efforts and charitable causes tug at her heart strings and she is working as an advocate to bring light to the work they are doing.

    Sherie–that is so funny to read on Jenn’s blog that you started out in Waterville! I went to school at ACH in Hartline. I lived between Coulee City and Almira for about 15 years–my grandparents and an aunt still live in that area. I remember going to Waterville for the NCW Fair nearly every summer. It was one of the highlights of the year! 🙂

    After Waterville I lived for a time in Cashmere. Fair was a big deal there too as they hosted the county fair. I’m still a small town girl at heart even though I live in a more urban area now. I guess my roots run deep from the years in those small towns. It shaped who I am and left deep impressions that helped form those core beliefs that make me who I am. It also gave me a great love for the outdoors and all God has made.

    Dear Sherie –
    I rarely go on a search for what is said about my book, Hope for the Flowers, but I did today. I stumbled across your blog and decided to write.

    Several of us are playing with the idea of trying to produce Hope For the Flowers ourselves, since all the Hollywoodie types that have approached me, want to mess it up or not let me have any decisions about it.

    I was just trying to get a feel for what sort of outreach might be possible and even some support like with money if we did such a thing.

    Should you have any thoughts about this, let me hear from you please.
    Thanks for a lovely site!

    Joanna,I am glad that my writings have touched you in some way. I welcome your comments, interaction, and fellowship. God has blessed me immensely through my “online friends” and I am thankful that I live in this day and age where we can be an ecnouragement and support to others even when we live in different parts of the world. I am glad your group is growing. I hope they are growing in knowledge or and relationship with God in addition to just growing in numbers. You have an amazing faith as a new believer. I look forward to seeing and hearing about where God takes you as you learn and grow even more.
