Sarah & Shelly’s Heart Story

Sarah and Shelly are two soul sisters who share a love for writing, nature, reading, tea, and personal growth. Both women strive to live authentically and desire to share their voices through books, blogs, and podcasts. 

Although they didn’t know each other at the time, they both lived in Estes Park, Colorado when they were in college. More than twenty years later, both felt called to move back to this small, mountain community, although now in very different places in their lives with families and pets in tow. After meeting through a mutual friend and recognizing their powerful connection and similar goals, they worked together to create a women’s circle which gathers monthly to inspire, grow and hold space for like-minded women.

The more time these heart-centered mamas spend together, the more inspired they are to follow their dreams and become published authors. Dreaming of what could be ultimately led them to create Voices Rising Press. Their goal is to publish great books and help writers get their unique words, thoughts, and experiences out into print.

Together, Sarah and Shelly have big aspirations including amplifying all the amazing stories and vulnerable voices out there that we have yet to hear from. This Voices Rising platform is here to educate and inspire. It is for women, men, writers, people in all walks of life to help you dream bigger and know that your story matters. If you can think, you can write. Through the healing process of writing, your voice can help others heal too.
