about me

Valerie Elliot Shepard
I am a  mom who is contented at home, loving the outdoors by exercising, gardening, sailing with my husband, and also excited about traveling. I am married to Walt Shepard, a missionary kid like me,  (he grew up in the Congo) who loves sailing and water, and is a pastor of a church plant called Christ Coastal Church in Southport, NC. We earnestly seek to love people, show them the love and light of Christ, and trust ourselves into God's hands for His use.  We have 8 children who are grown, missing all of them, 4 grands in the UK, one little one in Brooklyn,  but we enjoy the quiet of this season now!

I want to be a devoted lover of God, like my Dad, (Philip James Elliot) who was killed when he was 28 by a primitive tribe of Ecuador. My mother, Elisabeth Howard Elliot, ( became married to Lars Gren in 1977) has been a stellar example to me of faithful obedience to God, and a hard worker who also loved life and fun. She blessed me hundreds of times with surprises and laughter. I got my sense of adventure from both of them. My father is now in heaven rejoicing with our Heavenly Father, and she went home to her heavenly HOME on June 15, 2015. If you are interested in learning more about my parents, or just communicating with me, you may email me.

      I am doing a business and am looking for people who are interested in scientifically formulated products with proven benefits, or need an extra income by helping people with their health and finances. You can see many clinical research studies and trials done on 10 of the products on my website, called shepmama.reliv.com. There is also a bigger website called PubMed.gov, and it will show you the proven trials of Lunasin, called LunarichX by Reliv. The main part of my job is to introduce people to this company, and then introduce them to others who have had success with the products we sell. The company pays those who do the business very well. Four of our 8 children, as well as my husband and I, have seen a true improvement in our health.


  1. Hi,
    I am a single girl who is working with some Missionaries in Ecuador. I have heard your Dads story growing up all my life and then God has placed me in the same country. Where exactly was he in Ecuador?? The missionaries don't let me go anywhere alone for fear of my safety but I would love to get into the jungle more and to the tribes that have never heard.

  2. greetings from Ireland - an actor friend recorded a poem, written by a poet friend, about your father, Jim Elliot. you might appreciate it. it was written a few decades ago.


    the poet was the blind / deaf Christian, Jack Clemo
