Relationship and Friendship Expert
Cherie has been writing articles on relationships for over a decade. She believes that no matter who we are or what we do, we share a desire for peaceful, happy relationships with our friends and family.
In 2010, Cherie was featured in What to Do When No One Has a Clue: Advice for the Brave New World. This was a thrill for her because several of her favorite celebs were in the book, including Real Housewives of New York cast members Countess LuAnn and Bethenny Frankel, Top Chef Rick Bayless, designers Badgley and Mishka, and more. Cherie answered a question on whether or not it’s okay to blog about your date. Her answer rounded out the dating section, and was featured on the same page with the Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger. (Here’s some more fun facts about her.)
Cherie grew up in a rough environment, but God lifted her from all that, and she writes about His grace and love in her nonfiction and fiction works. Her mission is to celebrate God, banish the shame of alcoholism, and help women understand their worth. Here’s more about her faith and her mission.
Readers have resonated with Cherie’s honest and inspirational “This I Believe” essay, which is one of the popular on the websites out of several hundred thousand entries on the NPR website. Her award-winning Christian poetry book Father’s Eyes is the story of her life in verse. (Find out more about her poetry.)
In 2013, Cherie founded the site Putting on the New, a Christian living site focused on women and our walk with the Lord. A group of diverse women write with Cherie on this site, sharing their stories and challenges.
