More About the Author
Madly in love with Jesus, and forever aesthetically driven, Sherri Ohler's calling as a Christian Artist began with her earliest childhood memories filled with coloring books and fresh boxes of crayons.
After getting 'saved' in youth group at 15, Sherri spent the next 15 years lost in the world as a prodigal as the Father pursued her in mercy to come back to Him. At 30, Sherri was introduced to the power of Holy Spirit and she has never been the same. It was then, after a brief time as a Pastry Chef, that the Lord told her to once again 'pick up her paintbrush'. Since then her artwork and writings on faith, food and art have gained a worldwide audience through her Home Décor & Jewelry Line by DEMDACO Studio called, 'Words To Live By.'
Sherri's life is one long story of creative & passionate living, heartfelt mistakes, and the FAITH that brings it all together. From overcoming extreme fear, anxiety & panic attacks, to years of custody battles to parenting her own prodigals, she can trace every step of success, triumph and joy to God's unending GRACE.
Her first book, Scripture Prayers for a Beautiful Life, was written after a painful tragedy in her own life that drew her focus once again to the saving face of Jesus where all things, even life's adversities, are made beautiful. Her second book, Beautiful Intercession- a Scripture Prayer Organizer & Journal, was written on the heels of the first when God used something her mother said to plant a seed of divine creativity in her heart. Learning of her mother's simple way of effectively praying for others-one scripture, many needs-Sherri felt called to write and colorfully illustrate a tool that would facilitate this beautiful prayer principle.
Sherri lives in Geneva, Illinois with her gifted woodworking husband and best friend, Randy. She is mom to two beautiful, talented daughters, October 22 & Ivy 16, and step mom to adorable & oh-so-smart, 12 year old Cheney.
