It is very cold here in South Dakota, so I’ve been spending quite a bit of time indoors.        DSCN1813

That would get pretty boring in a hurry if all I did was watch TV. Thankfully, for graduation my mother gave me my own sewing machine! For years, I have just borrowed my her machine. A few months ago, l I learned that for her college graduation gift from MU, her parents gave her a sewing machine. That was the machine my sisters and I’d learn to sew on. I’m a little (okay, a lot) sentimental so I wanted to continue the tradition and asked for a machine for graduation, too. Meet Molly. My Baby Lock sewing machine.

I waited to get my machine until I moved up to South Dakota. That was my mom’s fabulous idea when I need to service the machine I’ll be able to do it right up the road instead of having to haul it back home to Missouri.

Getting a new sewing machine is kind of like getting a new car! It takes awhile to get used to all the features and its a little slow-going a first – but I’m looking forward to it.

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.
