Once I began this memoir, I couldn’t put it down. That the raw, unrelenting succession of traumatic crises ultimately gives rise to an uplifting story is a wonder to behold. It’s a story that starkly names suffering – both one’s own and what one encounters in others. But above all, it’s a story of transformation as the author gains agency, voice, and a widening embrace of the mystery of God.

There’s no better place to mine out core values and transformative lessons than from within the crucible of our own stories. In her memoir, Sherill has drawn water from her deep wells and offered it to us as a gift that will quench our thirst. Your journey through this book will not only be a wild ride but a profoundly meaningful journey

Wild Ride tells the honest story of someone who has not only survived but learned to thrive through dysfunction, brokenness, and disillusionment in ministry. As we witness Sherill finding freedom, we find ourselves hungry for our own! I wholeheartedly recommend Wild Ride to readers, as few stories offer such vulnerability and insight.

How does one reclaim hope in desperate and incredibly painful circumstances? Feeling that God has left her stranded, Sherill sets out on a journey of deep searching – of finding herself and God. The reader is irresistibly drawn in by the crushing honesty and sheer courage of this wife and mother who comes to terms with her own vulnerabilities – entering into the beauty of mystery and uncertainty.

Wild Ride is compelling! Hold on tight as you experience the cross-cultural drama and the courage it takes to risk time and again. Sherill doesn’t tell us what to think or feel but invites readers to consider where their own story intersects with their image of God. This book is both gripping and meaningful.
