Sheila's Books


" My Baby’s Feet: Choice, Death, and the Aftermath."

“Excerpt from My Baby’s Feet”:
Fearfully and desperately wanting to hide my mistakes and enable me to deny the unwanted, but not totally unexpected ramifications of my earlier choices, I chose what seemed to be the easiest answer. I chose death, and then I moved into the aftermath of my choice. I , for a lifetime and beyond, will live in the aftermath of my choice. Although there is recovery, through forgiveness, there are lasting ramifications. No one told me that the ramifications of my choice would last forever. No one told me what my choice would do to my heart. No one told me that my choice was, in fact, a death sentence for my baby.

Through my story, I pray that you will know that a living choice is the only real choice. ... Come with me as I discover a new truth about an old choice.

From My Secret Loss:

“"...Having had an abortion is often a woman's deepest secret. She may be afraid to tell her family, friends, or others that are close to her out of fear of retribution or condemnation. Meeting people with compassion for her and with an understanding of the circumstances surrounding her choice is rarely expected. As she hears and sees much of today's pro-life messages, she is confronted not only with the declaration that her choice was wrong, but that she is personally unacceptable, unforgivable, or unworthy. On occasion, there is the woman who finally confides in a trusted friend, only to be rebuked and shamed by that friend.."

We can hold so much guilt and shame that we can become immobilized. In this workbook, Sheila Luck provides an excellent group process for people to recognize and rid themselves of the guilt and shame that can trap any of us. I strongly recommend it!"-Dr. Thomas J. Wiltzius, PhD, LPC, Sr. Vice President, Right Management

However, God uses genuine guilt to alert us to specific wrong actions. In my years of ministry, I have seen great emotional and spiritual struggle in people trying to discern the difference. This Bible study offers an opportunity to reflect on this challenge and discover the powerful grace of God."-Jeannie Hannemann, M. A., Founder of Elizabeth Ministry International

"Whether work-life change is the result of job dissatisfaction, an involuntary layoff or termination, or a voluntary move, it includes a set of endings and a set of beginnings. We can face the endings with sadness, regret, anger, or disappointment; and we can face the beginnings with fear, worry or anxiety. Alternatively, we can accept the endings with peace and look forward to the beginnings with hope, viewing the entire change with a sense of joy and excitement."

Debra Butler, BSN, MPA, PhD, co-owner of Pathways to Enrichment and author of "Season's of Grief, What Nature Can Teach Us About Loss"

"Thank you Sheila for providing a resource that promises to be of significant value to the Body of Christ. Our culture conditions us to habitually define ourselves by means of profession, performance and position -- all external measures of worth; while God weighs our value in a very different scale. The author asks those in the midst of identity-wrenching transition to peer into God's timeless Word for renewed self-definitions; wonderfully poses searching questions that invite the Spirit to open our hearts; alongside vignettes from her own poignant experience that let us know she has walked these paths before. Sheila resists the temptation to tell readers what they should be thinking, instead, allowing the Holy Spirit to bring customized insight to each individual as they walk through her study with Him." Jim Case, Compass Christian Coaching, Appleton WI (
