Together, we can restore women to
the state God intended.
OUR FIRST MINISTRY IS OUR FAMILY.
Carla Shellis was born in Warrenton, Virginia where she lived for only two short years before moving to her mothers hometown of Del Rio Texas. It was in Del Rio, Carla was taught by example by her parent and her beloved late Grandmother, better known as “Lita” (short for abuelita in spanish) the importance and value of family. At the age of sixteen Carla’s family made a big move to Dallas where she would complete her Junior and Senior year. In 1990 Carla was married to her husband Simon after only a few short months of dating. Together you will often hear them proudly brag on their two beautiful children, Michael and Jade. Carla will often refer to her two children as her most abundant harvest. Michael and Jade are actively involved in the production of Sparkle Living and are volunteers at their home church, Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas.
Simon and Carla are affectionally called by their children “The paparazzi”. You will find the posted pictures in social media to be primarily of their beloved children. There is nothing more important to Carla than the foundation of one of God’s greatest institutions, her family. In addition, Carla is commonly known amongst her family and friends as “The Dog Lady”. With an immeasurable love for her four dogs, Diesel, Strider, Senior and CoCo, when at home, she spends her days with great joy as they all follow and surround her wherever she goes.
Daughter to (what Carla will call “The Greatest Parents on earth”) Bob and her late mother Bochy Gray, you will often hear her say, “Our kids will emulate who we are. I am still working on being as great of a parent as my parents were to me!” Her father Bob can be found working in and around their office helping out with whatever his children and God children need. Carla’s only sister, Robbie Page, is often referred to as her “biggest cheerleader & greatest prayer warrior”.
Carla’s life passion is and has always been about reaching ladies of all ages all around the world to help encourage and equip them to be the very best they can be, and to receive from their life the very abundance that God has promised in His faithful Word.

Hello, my name is Carla Shellis.
I am a woman who lives with a passion to see the female-side of humanity living her life in the fullest measure of freedom.I want to see women break away from the grip of unworthiness (or saying not feeling good enough), insecurity, fear and rejection so that she can live her life in the fullest expression of her feminine design. A world where “she” knows & walks in the power and beauty within the fiber of her make up. I know it is from that knowing that she will not only find what she was created to be and do in this life, but she will become a desirable, beautiful woman that overflows with a confidence that is uncontainable.
As I venture out in my mission to reveal the hidden truth of who we are and break the core of lies we have lived under for centuries, I know this generation will see an awakening amongst women that will rebuild communities, homes & families. I will see the broken of the broken who are exploited and trapped in abuse take back their identity and purpose and begin to rebuild their lives, so that the community around them will also be transformed.
