More About Sheila Walsh

Sheila Walsh Sheila Walsh is a powerful Bible teacher and best-selling author from Scotland with over 4 million books sold. A featured speaker with Women of Faith® conferences, she has reached more than 5 million women by combining honesty, vulnerability, and humor with God's Word. Her passion to see women's lives transformed by the power of God's word is contagious. Currently completing her Masters in Theology, Sheila lives in Frisco, Texas with her husband, Barry, her son, Christian, and her two little dogs, Belle and Tink.

Walsh began her career as a contemporary Christian singer after finishing college with studies in theology from London Bible College (now London School of Theology) in 1979 and music from the London Academy of Operatic Art.[1] Walsh worked as an evangelist with the British chapter of Youth For Christ and sang with a group known as "The Oasis" until going solo in 1981. She also worked closely at this time with keyboard player Chris Rolinson, who contributed extensively to the unique sound on her first "new wave" style album, Future Eyes. He also toured with her on her first United States tour, where she opened for Phil Keaggy.[1] As Walsh enjoyed some success both in the United Kingdom and America as a CCM musician, she was asked by minister Pat Robertson to serve as a co-host of his television talk-show, The 700 Club in 1987. Walsh served in this capacity into 1992 and also hosted her own talk-show, Heart to Heart with Sheila Walsh.

Ideological differences with Pat Robertson and general feelings of depression brought Walsh to re-examine her life's direction. After leaving Pat Robertson's enterprises in 1992 she sought therapy for her depression, eventually returning to college at Fuller Theological Seminary in California to take on doctoral studies in theology. Pat Robertson explained her departure from CBN as the result of a "nervous breakdown" brought on by the tremendous demands of her work with CBN. He asked his viewers to keep her in their prayers and ask God to give her the strength to continue doing His work.

She went on to write a book exploring her struggle with depression and her experiences with her faith as a Christian, entitled Honestly. While Walsh had written several books on theology before, this autobiography would become the wellspring of her later work on personal aspects of faith and would set the tone for her introspective, personal, but evangelical approach to affairs of modern theology.

Over the course of the latter 1990s, Walsh's work has concerned women's issues within the church and the unique relationship of the contemporary woman with God. She has written over seventeen books including Honestly, Living Fearlessly, and Life is Tough, but God is Faithful. She has also written several books for children recently. She also has continued her musical career as a songwriter and singer and has recorded several albums of new Christian music and traditional hymns arranged to a Celtic sound.

In 2005, Walsh partnered with Tommy Nelson publishers to create a line of children's books and DVDs called Gigi, God's Little Princess TM. The brand has become the #1 Christian Girl's brand and continues to be popular and releases new products. Walsh, with her family, is now an active attendee of Prestonwood Baptist Church, in Plano, Texas.

As of 2007, Walsh has appeared on many TV programs such as: Life Today, Hour of Power and The Rock Gospel Show (BBC) among many others. She was a member of the team "Women of Faith" on the second season of The American Bible Challenge on GSN.

Sheila Walsh currently resides in Nashville, in the state of Tennessee. Sheila Walsh was born in 1956.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A collection of personal stories, poetry, and Scripture to send the message that God will receive us with open arms  Aug 3, 2005
Shelia Walsh is known for a lot of things. She started out as a singer and went on to become a frequent television personality with her stints on the "700 Club" and her own "Heart to Heart with Shelia Walsh" on the Family Channel. More recently she's been touring the nation speaking at Women of Faith conferences, and in between it all she's managed to write almost 20 books for adults and children. Her latest foray into writing is COME AS YOU ARE: An Open Invitation from the Heart of God. And in it she tells this story.

Several years ago, Shelia was getting ready to speak before a large group of women. She was wearing a new white suit, looking polished. But as she waited backstage, with five minutes to go before show time, her then three-year-old son ran towards her with arms outstretched for a hug yelling "I love you, Mommy!" He was covered in chocolate, and in that moment she had a decision to make.

"I saw the chocolate-encrusted face and sticky hands approaching, but I saw something else, something far more compelling. I saw the look in his eyes. I saw the love and trust that a child has for a parent. I saw the twinkle and joy that Christian and I share in our relationship. I saw the abandon he has when he throws himself at his dad or mom. I knelt down and opened my arms and scooped him up in a big hug. When I released him and put him down again I had little chocolate deposits on the shoulders of my suit and a big chocolate kiss on my cheek. I smiled down at my brown-eyed son and headed for the stage, my friend Marilyn Meberg wiping my cheek as we walked....

"I know that it would be perfectly acceptable to divert an oncoming food disaster, but I made a commitment to Christian before he was born that speaks to moments like these.

"I want to be part of God's show-and-tell to my son. I want him to know deep in his heart that he can come to me at any time with anything and I will receive him. At three he comes with chocolate on his face, but at fifteen he might come with a darker stain on his soul."

It's true; as we grow older, our problems get darker and more complex (at least it sure seems that way). We're all stained in some way --- fear, disappointment, brokenness, shame, unfulfilled longing, anger. And in her book, Shelia touches on each of these areas with a lilting, melodic literary voice that weaves together personal stories with poetry and Scripture.

COME AS YOU ARE is certainly encouragement lite, but it stays a few steps away from being sappy. Instead, it strikes a delicate tone for women who might be teetering on the edge of willingness to delve into their own.

Shelia has the same message for her readers that she had for her son --- whatever dark stains you might have, come to your Father anyway. God will receive you with open arms, sticky fingers and all.
