About Me

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

 ~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

My name is Shanna. I’m an explorer, encourager, and an educator. I embrace life with enthusiasm and strive to live with intention. I live in Southern New Hampshire with my pastor husband of fifteen years, Zach, and our three children (ages 9, 8, and 4 .)  I graduated from college with degrees in Special Education and Elementary Education and have had the pleasure of teaching in many different settings on both coasts of the United States. Now a stay-at-home mom, I use my education when speaking to groups, in church ministry, and in homeschooling my children.

I am currently serving as the Community Coach for the New England area with MOPS International. I am also one of the main dreamers, visionaries, and frequent speakers for Centerpoint Sisterhood- a monthly, multigenerational gathering of women. I enjoy adventures, nature and the outdoors, homeschooling, speaking to groups, and growing in my faith. My heart’s desire is to inspire and encourage women to take steps towards change, to help women find their identity in Christ, and equip people to use their God-given gifts and talents to live life with greater purpose and enthusiasm.

This blog is a collection of thoughts and a place to share ideas. I write about topics of faith, family and homeschooling. I also love to write devotionals about the things that challenge me and things that inspire me to grow.

I am available to speak at your MOPS group, women’s events, parenting conferences, and leadership training. Please see my Speaking Topics  page for more information.

Thank you for reading. I would love to hear from you.
