More About 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. 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. 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.

Wonder? Feb 18, 2007
I didn't find this so very wonderful. I was a bit disappointed in it, but I love Sheila Walsh. She portrays things better in person, so watching her tell about it is fabulous. The reading is similar to other self improvement, religious books. for me, at least.
I'm Not Wonder Woman: But God Made Me Wonderful! Jan 20, 2007
This book helped me so much. It seemed like it was directed right to my issues!!!! Ya know, I am okay just the way I am---God loves me like this!!!! That was so reassuring! I think it will help lots of women. I bought it for my two daughters for Christmas.
Go figure, the book is WONDERFUL Oct 2, 2006
Well, the cover of the book pretty much explains it all; us women try to do too much. I really enjoy the way Shiela writes her books; especially comparing scenarios to her own life. Great for any woman to read.
Sheila is right on target! Jul 12, 2006
For those of us who are recovering control freaks, this book is a must read. Sheila is both compassionate (having been there herself) and theologically sound.
Inspirational! Jul 1, 2006
If you have ever struggled with perfection or living up to the standards of the Proverbs 31 woman, then this is a must read for you!
