Although spirituality and a relationship with the Lord has always been a major part of Sheila’s life, she gained a strong awareness of God during her years spent in Catholic boarding schools in Fall River, Massachusetts and in Kearney, New Jersey in the late 1970s. But it was not until years later that Sheila learned about the integral nature of God’s Holy Spirt and the major role that His Spirit plays in our daily lives.
Sheila enjoys spending time with her husband of 22 years, and her son Ronald Jr., daughter, Jasmine Kelly, and grandchildren: Alicia, Anthony, Mark, DeAngelo, and Montana.
