You Are | Loved

you are loved

You are loved….so very, very loved. So I have this passion; passion to just speak life in to others and to see them rise up into their purpose and what God has designed them to be. Lately I’ve felt very strongly about this and I believe that for the last couple of years God has been developing and birthing that passion with in me. When we know and are confident in our worth and our…

My Story | Part 1

my story part 1

My head was in his lap and I was looking up at the ceiling, wondering how I had gotten here. My little girl hopes and dreams were flashing right before my very eyes. My heart felt like it was literally being torn apart.  My husband’s soft hands were brushing away the hairs surrounding my face. “Shannon, do you really think that this is Gods will?” In that moment, that very tiny moment in time, it was…

Bringing it to ya Real.


  Hey y’all! Just wanted to pop in and say a great big hugged hello to you! I recently learned something about myself that I’d like to share. About 6 weeks ago I looked into the faces of about 250 women and shared my story of grace at our annual women’s conference at my church. After I shared I felt an extraordinary sense of freedom that I’ve never felt before. Jesus enlightened me about so…

Turkeys and Stuff


HI! I know, I know…it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Nothing really going on, just the busyness of the Geurin home. Honestly I’ve been a little down. You know, how sometimes life just kinda gets you down? Oh come on. It happens to everyone. Don’t sit there and act all perfect. Sometimes I think loving and caring so deeply is a curse. And ya know the bible verse that talks about carrying one anthers burdens?…

Happy Wednesday! Yesterday was part of 1 OSM Takes Manhattan-if you missed it you can read it here! Part 2 begins with me meeting John at Macy’s in Herald Square early Friday evening.

I had been to Macy’s NY before, but apparently I didn’t walk through because I never realized it was so big!  After that we went to Little Italy and…

Happy Tuesday! I’m so excited to tell you about my recent trip Manhattan!  Now that my girls are older, my husband and I try to take advantage of opportunities to travel together, especially when he takes business trips.
