Luther’s handwriting is as wild as the stories in the Wild Man book.

Check out his signature below on the first page of book number one.

.I asked him to “please write neatly” …and he still covered up half the page.

He didn’t have much to say about his poor handwriting, except this anecdote.

He explained, “When we used to buy and sell hogs, one person told me they never knew what their hogs brought until the check was deposited in the bank.”

Eventually, Luther’s brother Buddy had to write all the checks.


This book sold for $220 at the Thanksgiving cow sale in Bowling Green, Mo. The funds were donated to the Heartland Foundation in Saint Joseph, Mo. Special thanks to the Oberling family for purchasing this book!

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
