Hi! I’m Shannon and I’m a child of God.  This blog was started to give somewhat of an account of the life my Father gave me. After living for many years unknowingly under the oppression of anxiety, depression and the ways of this world, my Savior has cracked open my hardened heart and spoken truth and love to me. He has restored me to life. I’m slowly learning to wake up each morning and rest in the knowledge that He has my day in His hands. My only responsibility is to Love the Lord my God with all my heart, all my soul, all my strength and all my mind and to love my neighbor as myself. {Luke 10:27}

Not only was this blog started to help me to savor life a little more and help me to see God in all I do but to be an encouragement to you.  I have a guideline for my content, that it will be …helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. {Ephesians 4:29} If it doesn’t do this, I’m sorry. I hope that I can live my life freely in the sacrifice Jesus paid for me and that I will be an encouragement for you to do the same.

I am set free. I am a one and only of two wonderful parents. As of July 10, 2010 I married Justin, the most supportive, caring and sacrificing man I know.  He is God’s gift to me and more of a man than I can ever ask to have.  I love baking, sweet tea, my job, decorating, sewing, crafting, fresh flowers, being outside {when it’s not too hot and especially not too cold : )} and reading.

I hope what I share here and will be an encouragement to you. Thanks for visiting! : )
