Inside Myself



Struggles are universal. At some point, everyone finds themselves in a place of pain or discomfort but usually only temporarily.


But what if you’re stuck there?


Get ready to enter the chapters, pages and life of Sheila’s personal struggles with more than two decades trapped in morbid obesity – trapped in a body that was robbing her of life. Even while dealing with physical, mental and spiritual matters, against all odds, she fought her way out of the body that was keeping her imprisoned in pain. She shares her transparent testimony including many eye opening, defining moments that led her to wake up and make one of the biggest decisions of her life – to save her life!

Is Food And Fellowship Making Us Fat?

While the bible teaches us against gluttony, we often practice this very thing at mealtime. In the interest of fellowship, we gather to indulge in high caloric foods and often with more than one serving on our plates......
