Sheila Walsh

From Scotland, Sheila is first a wife and mom and in her spare time she is an author, Bible teacher and television host. She has spoken around the world to over 6 million women and reaches a potential 100 million people daily as co-host of the Life Today television program.

Sheila loves to make the Bible practical, sharing how God met her at her lowest point and helped her to rise up again. Her message: God is for you!

Sheila’s books have sold over 5 million copies including her latest bestseller It’s Okay Not To Be Okay. In February 2020, she releases her newest book, Praying Women, How to Pray When You Don’t Know What To Say.

Texas is her home where she lives with her husband, son and two little crazy dogs Tink and Maggie who rule the roost!
