Writer and editor with 15+ years of experience. Highly creative. Deep thinker. Organized. Note-taker. In the middle between extrovert and introvert. Always ready with new ideas and a smile. Believes in kindness.
Hello and welcome. My name is Stephanie Sheaffer and I’ve been writing for almost as long as I can remember.
I’m currently the Editor of TucsonTopia.com (“Find your Tucson paradise“) and Metropolitan Mama (“See the World, One City at a Time“). I am also a freelance contributor to several publications.
Here at StephanieSheaffer.com, I write about the things closest to my heart – family, books/reading, writing, running, hiking, travel, and philanthropy.
My husband & I have four children – three daughters (born 2006, 2009, and 2012) and one son (born 2016).
In 2011, my family and I took a year off to travel around the country in an RV with the intent purpose of helping people. My husband Tim wrote about the experience at: http://giveeveryday.com/.
At the end of my life, I hope to be remembered as a woman who used her life and her words to consistently point others to the love of Jesus Christ.
To find out more about who I am, take a peek at my Favorite Things.
I look forward to connecting with you!
“Stephanie is an intelligent, honest, & thoughtful writer who has made it her life’s mission to do good for others. It’s so obvious from the way she talks about her kids, husband, friends & strangers, and even the way she criticizes, that she genuinely cares about uplifting, as opposed to ranting.” – Soni Albright [Houston, TX]

“Stephanie has a way of connecting with her readers on many levels. Her posts are honest, insightful and genuine — filled with conviction, passion, a zest for life and all that it entails — the great and not-so-great. She encourages, challenges, and inspires by choosing to live life to the fullest.” – Nini Lettner [Santa Cruz, CA]
“On her blog, Stephanie is honest, forthright, and more infectiously optimistic than seems possible. But, psst…I have a secret for you: it’s genuine. After having befriended her in real life, I can tell you that she’s exactly the same in living color as she is in cyberspace. She’s one of the kindest, most encouraging and professionally-minded bloggers I read.” – Darcie Maranich [Vail, AZ]
