I know you're tired. I know you're weary. The days seem long. The nights seem longer. There's no air and your suffocating. The hole that you've gotten yourself in to is too deep. It's too deep and no matter how hard you try to climb out, you just can't make your way to the top. I'm not sure what it is that has caused your fall. Maybe you've given way to an addiction.

You try to pick yourself up but it’s exhausting. I know you’re tired. I know you’re weary. The days seem long. The nights seem longer. There’s no air and your suffocating. The hole that you’ve gotten yourself in to is too deep. It’s too…

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.

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…
