About Cheryl

As a pastor’s wife and women’s ministry leader, Cheryl found her identity in the approval of others for many years. The endless striving brought her to a place of complete spiritual, physical, and emotional exhaustion. As the founder of Securely Held Ministries LLC, she helps Christian women break the power of other people's opinions and find rest in the security of God’s embrace.

Cheryl is an author, Christian speaker, certified lay counselor, and recovering people pleaser. She is happily married to Alan (33 years and counting!) —they have four adult children and a bonus son by marriage. Cheryl is a proud Mimi to Elle, Luna, and Yoda. (Two granddogs and a grandcat!)

Friend, would you like to break the power that others' opinions are holding over you?

Perhaps you've experienced Jesus as your tender Savior, the Holy Spirit as your comforter, yet view God as far off and removed? Maybe even harsh?

Sister, I would love to help you discover your identity as a beloved daughter of a good, good Father. Set free from the expectations of others; you will realize you are securely held and accepted by your heavenly Father, no matter how others view you.

This is what I talk about in my newsletter.
