A note from Cherrie:
I want to extend a warm welcome to you and an invitation, my friend. Yes, YOU! The brave one whose earthly days and powerful purpose were established in the heavens before you took your first breath! You may not feel courageous as you read these words and approach the stormy places in your heart. But here you are…and I applaud you! Do not let fear overwhelm you, dear soul. You were created for such a time as this. Wherever you are on your journey, you are so welcome here! Maybe you have been wounded and are wary, skeptical of anything related to God and those who claim to know him. Perhaps you are just kicking the tires and exploring the claims of Christianity, or you are new to a faith-walk. Maybe you are a long-time follower of Jesus. Wherever you are as you visit this page, my hope is that you will stay awhile and explore with me the possibility of adjusting the lens from which you view the stormy seasons of your life and discover the One who still speaks to storms and commands them, “Peace! Be still.” And as you seek answers to your deepest questions, my prayer and belief is that you will find that you are fiercely loved and sought by a merciful and kind Father who longs for a close connection with you. Though the storms should continue to rage, in Jesus may you find you are COVERED.
Cherrie is passionate about intimately connecting with her followers as she shares the story of her personal hurricane and the devastation that rocked her family in the aftermath of their exodus from an Amish-flavored community. As Cherrie shares her journey from paralyzing pain to powerful purpose with warmth, candor, and humor, we too can experience hope in our own stormy seasons.
Cherrie spent seven years with Ernst & Young where she held a variety of roles, including Onboarding Specialist and was twice awarded the annual Top Tier Instructor Award for Welcome to EY Firm-wide Orientation. Additionally, Cherrie was employed as the Director of Human Resources at South Shore Harbour Resort and Conference Center and is now employed as an Executive Recruiter with BIC serving the Energy Industry. She writes, speaks at various events and has a private coaching practice directed toward women ready for change. Her favorite thing to do is make meaningful connections whether in a one-on-one coaching session, in her recruiting role, through the written word, or in sharing with an audience at an event, which is “just having a cup of coffee with a large group of friends at once!”
Cherrie is married to Mack, her partner in tackling the joys and challenges of maintaining a thriving relationship and loving their beautifully imperfect, blended family. Together, they are the parents of five gifted young adults, five beautiful grandchildren, and their sweet lab, Sadie Bleu. Cherrie gets excited about her first morning cup of coffee, studying her Bible, working out, Friday night dates with her Mack and girls weekends.
