Sheila Ives is a seasoned follower of Christ, having given her life to him at a young age.
She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and is trained in Scope Ministries counseling principles as well as Theophostic Prayer Ministry. She is a state licensed minister, commissioned as a minister of counseling, and has been blessed to have been able to use her gifting in this area for many years.
In this life, the Lord has faithfully navigated her through more than her fair share of hard knocks, so when she counsels she brings to the experience not only book knowledge but personal experience and an unusual depth of spiritual wisdom and insight. She has considerable experience with communication issues, addictive/compulsive behaviors, divorce, depression, grief, marriage and parenting, identity and self-esteem.
With the Lord's help she has successfully raised four children who have since blessed her with ten delightful grandchildren. After living in eight states from Alabama to California, Sheila, an Oklahoma City native, was blessed to finally be able to move back "home" with her husband, Bob, in 2001. She enjoys free-lance writing.
