About Me

Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

~Ralph Waldo Emerson~

embrace enthusiampro


Hello and Welcome! My name is Shanna. I strive to embrace life with joyful enthusiasm and live with intention. I live in Southern New Hampshire with my pastor husband of sixteen years, Zach, and homeschool our three children (ages 11, 10, and 6.) 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. I am currently working towards a life-long dream of pursuing a Masters Degree at Gordon-Conwell Theological School in South Hamilton, Massachusetts.

For six years, I served as the Community Coach for the New England area with MOPS International. I am one of the dreamers, leaders and frequent speakers for Centerpoint Sisterhood– a monthly, intergenerational gathering of women in Salem, NH. My heart’s desire is to educate, motivate and challenge women to seek and know Jesus Christ better. I hope to inspire and encourage women to take steps towards positive change, 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, community, homeschooling and leadership. I enjoy writing 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.
