Intimate Conversation with Author and Pastor Sheila Pace

Ella: Hello Shelia! Please tell us a little about you and your passion for writing.
My name is Sheila Pace. I am a mother of four and grandmother of seventeen. I have been happily married for nineteen years. Presently I pastor along side of my husband in a small church that was formed after we started a transitional housing center for formerly drug addicted adults that were homeless and needed to regain their place in society. My passion began long ago and until recently I never realized how many others benefited from the sincerity that goes into my writing.

Ella: Please introduce us to your first book. Isn't it exciting?!
My first book The Lord is my Light is about my own struggle to deal with the abuses that had occurred in my life. I was tired of it and had come to the end of myself and thought I had no other option by to take my life. In my despair I picked up a bible and it opened to Psalm 27: which starts out by saying, “The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear?” I began to weep and those words gave me the strength to call for help.

Ella: Please finish this sentence for me: I am powerful because...
I am powerful because I am a survivor. All that took place in my life was meant to cause me to end my life. Nevertheless, there was another plan that I wasn’t aware of. There was a plan for good and not evil to give me a future and a hope. All I had to do to receive it was to cry out for help. When I did, help was there immediately. For the Lord promised to be a present help in the time of trouble. Although I didn’t know it at the time, now the Lord is using me in the same way he used the woman I called to be that bridge for hurting women and the hand to help them to cross over into the bosom of God’s love.

Jeremiah 29:13 - And you shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.
