Cheryl Skid


Cheryl Samelson Skid was born in Michigan City, Indiana, and spent the first 17 years of her life in the love and protection of the Jewish community. Indiana University opened the doors to wild living after years of being protected as a daughter beloved by her parents. Between her sophomore and junior years of college, an opportunity opened to live as a volunteer in Israel, and she took it. Everything changed. The foolish coed gave way to the young woman who helped frightened North African and Middle Eastern immigrants prepare for war.
Cheryl has been married forty-three years to Neil, was a stay-at-home mom in Florissant, Missouri, until her last child was in kindergarten, and afterward spent twenty-five years teaching English and French, special education, and Bible. She still loves teaching and, as a retired educator, finds many opportunities to share her knowledge.

Her love of writing began when she was a child. Once she had her miraculous encounter with Jesus, she began keeping journals, recording thirty-eight years of God’s amazing grace and power, which provided great material for her books. Her first book, Taking God’s Word to Heart, is a 31-day devotional journal. Never Out of His Sight is her second book. Follow Cheryl on Facebook ( or visit her website (

"Cheryl! Don’t sing that! Jewish girls don’t believe that!” Mother had let her go just once to Vacation Bible School and she learned the song, “Jesus Loves Me.” Growing older, she was convinced that no Jewish girl could believe. As her heart grew hard and cold, she didn’t care. But the time came when, in all His glory and His brilliance, Jesus proved that—yes—Jewish girls could believe.
