About the Author

A self-described "sappy soul whisperer and sarcasm aficionado", Shelby Spear is a wife of 25 years and a mom of three 20-something kiddos who has a deep love for Jesus and storytelling. Most days she muses in rhetorical wonder over what God was thinking when He put her in charge of three humans. Although God's quick to remind her how capable she is, apparently He sometimes does so while crossing His fingers behind His back. Now that she and her husband, John, are in a season of empty nest, Shelby spends her days writing about all the ways motherhood has shaped, transformed, inspired, and aged her. You'll find her stories all over the web at places like Her View From Home, For Every Mom, Today, Love What Matters, and others. She has several stories in print at Guideposts magazine as well, the most recent in the January 2019 issue called, Our 40 Day Soul Fast. She is the loving and goofball hostess of a growing family of friends on her blog at and across social media outlets. While John and her children graffiti her soul, all things chocolate melt her heart. Music stirs her like no other, crying fulfills her, and a love of sports keeps her competitive streak alive. Some of her favorite things in life are books, yoga, This Is Us, and a comfy pair of jeans-most notably the stretchy kind. Denim defines her in a bluesy kind of way.
Lisa is excited to be entering a new frontier in her life; meeting the eligibility requirement for Dunkin' Donuts senior discount. Because she's now a 'biddy,' she lives in the same attire as new mommas: tshirts and sweats for daily living and extravagant affairs. She is an avid storyteller with plenty of material to pull from in her role as wife of 40+ years to Stu, step-mom to a son and daughter, both in their early forties, and a grandma to six grandbabies: five boys and one girl, ages 6-16. You can find her words online and in print at places like Her View From Home, Grown and Flown, Guideposts, and Chicken Soup for the Soul. Her decades of experience as a mental health professional along with her weekly empowerment circles give mommas of every age a place to celebrate themselves and one another. She prays every day that the world becomes a more tolerant and accepting place-hoping that each one of us will work towards making a lasting contribution to ensure this outcome. Lisa also loves children's theater and is ready to pursue a career in stand-up comedy if someone discovers she's funny. Her children's book, A Royal Mistake, is ready to be published if someone discovers she's written it. When it's all said and done, Lisa's wish is that everyone walk with lightness, giggle easily, and land softly someday in the arms God.
