About Me

Hello. I’m Shelli Littleton.

Thank you for stopping by. You are welcome any time.

I’m a simple, middle-aged girl, a Texan, and I’m blessed to be a mother to two grown women.

And I love all things Jesus, Texas, writing, and photography.

LifeWay’s HomeLife magazine published my first article in 2007. Since then, the Lord has blessed me with the opportunity to write for WMU, Woman’s Missionary Union’s magazine Missions Mosaic. I love interviewing missionaries and sharing their stories. I’ve been blessed to have interviewed and written articles on some amazing folks, like Ron Hall and Melissa Moore. And I love that I’ve been given the opportunity to write about some of my very own hardships … sharing how I survived. I love how the Lord can use the very thing that almost killed us to heal us.

I’ve written one non-fiction book. And I’ve stuck my toes into the water and am learning to write fiction, too. So far, I’ve written five novels, and I’ve loved every minute of it. I’ve won the Mount Hermon First-Timers Contest 2018, and I’ve semi-finaled in ACFW’s Genesis contest 2018, 2021, and 2022. I finaled in the ACFW Genesis contest 2022 and became the Genesis winner 2022 for contemporary.

Why do I blog? I like to share issues God has me pondering, sometimes things I don’t know the answer to. I never claim to be an expert … just Shelli’s Scribblings and food for thought. Always feel free to comment and give me something else to ponder.

Blessed by you,

    1. Jane, I so love you … you, my beautiful English friend. ❤ I can't believe you stopped by here and commented on my blog. That's so sweet of you. I'll always cherish it. I mentioned you to one of my husband's aunts, and she said, "You need to tell her that you have an English aunt." One of my husband's uncles married a beautiful English lady. They moved to Virginia. He passed away a few years ago, but she still lives in Virginia. She's so sweet. Such a beautiful accent. I took the cutest picture of her with the girls in her pink hair rollers, holding a pink BB gun … I don't get to see her too often, but every now and then she comes down to Texas for a Littleton visit. She's so lovely. One day, I'm going to visit England. ❤ That's my dream.

    Hello Shelli—I came here via your Instagram account, and I found that through the comments you made about Lisa James’ vacation photo. I thought at first glance that the photos on your Instagram account were watercolors. They are so artistic, and almost every one of them deserves a frame and a wall.

    When I have the opportunity, I want to spend more time here and read some of your stories, and I will recommend you to my wife.

    By the way, I live in Little Rock, but I am originally from Memphis where Lisa lives. I grew up in the Southern Baptist Church, and I was a member of Bellevue, where Adrian Rogers was my pastor.

    I am happy to have discovered you.

    1. George, thank you so much. You blessed my day. And thank you for the encouragement over my pictures. Sometimes I wonder if people will appreciate them since they aren’t crisp and clear like others … I play around with the brightness and contrast and saturation … trying to make them unique. And I know Little Rock. My grandparents would take us into Arkansas for vacations when we were young. I’m so glad to have you as a new friend.
