Shelia's first album, God's Word has reached listeners as far as Japan. You Can Depend On Jesus reminds us that it is better to trust in the Lord then put confidence in man (Psalms 118:8), You Keep Me Going (Lord) testifies to the fact that the joy of the Lord is your strength (Neh. 8:10), Narrow Road proclaims that broad is the way that leads to destruction but narrow is the way that leads to life and there are few who find it (Luke 13:24). Shelia is presently working on her second CD entitled "You Proclaim" and plans to release the first single from this project "God Cares" in 2008. She desires to be an accomplished singer, songwriter and producer that strives to reach the hearts of others through God's Word. NOTE: I PRAY THAT THIS ALBUM WILL ENCOURAGE YOU!!!
