About Me

I’m Sheryl L.W. Barnes, PhD, PhD, DMIN and I love being a CEO, Professional Development Trainer, SOUL-WELLNESS Life Coach, Author, Speaker and Minister of the Gospel! My greatest joys are helping others connect with their God-given gifts and to make soul-wellness / self-care LIFESTYLE decisions as acts of Christian stewardship!  My philosophy about living the life God has blessed your with is simple: “It’s your life… make it AMAZING!”


I’ve been blessed to win a national award for each of the two books I’ve published:  “10 GIFTS to Give Yourself – The Journey Back to You!” and “Discipleship in the Age of Distraction.” I’ve also enjoyed myriad opportunities to train, teach, disciple and encourage people from all parts of the globe.

As a minister, mother, sister, friend and numerous other “titles” I honestly can say that my best moment is… NOW.  I’m learning to embrace the majesty and miracle of being fully present in the present and that is what I’m committed to helping you experience.
