About Me

I’m Sheryl L.W. Barnes, PhD, PhD, DMin and I love being a CEO, Professional Development Trainer, Strategic-Success Life Coach, and Author! My greatest joy is helping others connect with the gifts inside of their hearts in order to make LIFESTYLE decisions to honor those gifts!  My philosophy about living 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 wife, 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.
