Hello, I’m Sheila Parnell. I am a speaker and teacher who speaks identity into the body of Christ. I’ve seen many people come into a fresh, new perspective of themselves in relation to their Father, God. One thing I love most is to be a part of releasing true joy that takes possession of individuals ushering in laughter and new hope.
I write and speak into people on a personal level concerning identity, relationship and living as mature sons of God who are free to be led by Holy Spirit. I cover similar issues on my blog. You can watch my YouTube teachings and take part in my workshops. See my Events and Resource pages.
My goal is to create insightful, relevant content that you can put to work in your everyday life and deepen your walk with God. If you want a more meaningful life and want to go from vague Christianity to a walk of confidence and power in Christ Jesus—someone who wants more out of their purpose on earth—then this blog is for you.
I am the former The Dalles Aglow President and Aglow Area Team Leader. During this time my husband, Phil, and I served as Directors of The Dalles River Gate Healing Rooms.
In 2009 I resigned from the Aglow Area Team and became the Healing Rooms Regional Assistant Director, IAHR. In September 2013 as I was traveling back from a mission trip to Africa I heard God softly whisper, “It is time to begin focusing on the ministry I have given to you and your husband”. January 2014 I stepped down from The Healing Rooms to give my full attention to Benchmark Ministries and to my writing.
Currently my first book is in preparation for a soon release.
I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Phil, for over forty-one years. We have two handsome sons and two beautiful daughters. They have given us six grandsons and five granddaughters.
We live in The Dalles, Oregon on the beautiful Columbia River.
