About Me

Hello! Welcome to Living Your Making!

Sheri L. Stuart, Journalist/PR Strategist/Blogger

I’m Sheri L. Stuart, a Daughter of the Most High God. I serve humanity by using my spiritual gift of exhortation to encourage women and teens from all walks of life. Professionally, I have worked as a journalist and public relations strategist for the past 15 years. I believe the path to becoming the best version of ourselves is to allow our mess to become our message and the tests of life to become our testimony.  And that’s exactly why this blog exists. Rather than hiding in shame, I decided to take the lessons I’ve learned from life’s disappointments and setbacks and share them with you.

If you need a dose of encouragement, you’ve come to the right place. I hope you’ll visit often.
