Shell’s Blogs

I write the following blogs, each sharing specific content geared toward various audiences. Some people like all three and others find that they like one of them. You may like as many as you find helpful for you!

Eyes Straight Ahead ( where I blog about pressing forward, reaching goals, and overcoming obstacles, as well as share faith-based writing and thoughts on life. The posts here are typically longer and follow my thought process on various topics.

Music & Musings series are posts in which I analyze songs and apply them to my life or share what I think about the song and how it touched me.

Movies & Meditation series are posts in which I share my thoughts about movies and how we can apply them to our lives.

Creative writing site ( where I share poetry and creative writing pieces. Pieces have been written throughout my life and also contain samples that will be in my upcoming book Yesterday’s Tomorrows when it is released in 2019.

Pictures & Prose series are posts in which a photographer provides a photo and I write a creative piece in 15 – 30 minutes depicting what I see when I look at the photo.

The Essential Creative ( where I share tips about using faith and oils to excel creatively. Here, I share recipes, tips for inspiring creative thinking with various oils, parenting thoughts, healthy lifestyles thoughts, Bible Studies and all that goes into excelling creatively with the use of essential oils and faith.

Bible & Blessings series are posts in which we dig into the Bible in a creative way to really analyze what is being said within the scripture. IT MAY NOT ALWAYS BE THEOLOGICALLY CORRECT. That is, sometimes in my creative thinking, I may think about things that are not spoken of in the Bible – I share when I am thinking through this and wondering about the details not provided. It is meant to help us expand our thinking and look deeper into scripture and is not meant to be used for theological study but more of a life application and creative approach to studying the Bible.
