Christmas is the best day of the year.

But, if you ask me, the runner up is: The Day All the Cows and Calves are Out to Pasture.

It should be a state holiday.

We should order fireworks and cake and maybe even a keg (not for me, of course).

This momentous, historic, wonderful day happened for us just last week.

Everyone breathed a big, huge sigh of relief.


The Importance of Pasture & Protein 

Did you know, about 85% of the land in the United States that is used for grazing cattle is unsuitable for growing crops?*

This means that cows are sort of like scavengers. If America’s ranchers (and the cows) were not using this land to produce beef – it would be…well, unused.

Grazing cattle on pasture more than doubles the area that can be used to raise food.

If you are a growing kid, an athlete, or someone interested in maintaining your health – protein is very important.

That’s why The Day All the Cows and Calves are Out to Pasture is the second best day of the whole dang, darn year!

Hey there... I'm Sierra!

I am from a family of all girls. I always keep a journal. John & I were married back in 2013. It was a miracle then & it is now. We had three kids between Oct 2014 & August 2018 : Joslyn Shea, J.D., and Jesse Lee. We remodeled two houses & moved three times in our first 5 years. I grew up in Missouri, but was transplanted to South Dakota. I am working on my masters at Sioux Falls Seminary as of 6.1.19.

I started Sierra Shea & Co. as a space to curate encouragement for all women toward creative, redemptive lives as daughters of the King of Kings.
