My name is Shanna. I am the second born of five daughters. I am the one who has always been afraid of her own shadow and yet, somehow Abba Father has brought me so far…both in body and in spirit. When I was 18, He moved my timid little self a thousand miles south of my home and family in Ohio, and planted me among family members in northeast Louisiana. I finished high school, then met my husband, Chris the following summer on a blind date. We have now been married since 2000 and have 2 boys, who are my full time occupation and my beating heart. I am their home school teacher and co-learner. It’s quite an adventure, to say the least.
I love to decorate and I’m excited to share some of my DIY projects with y’all. My husband and I worked on our first home together for 11 years and right as the paint dried on the last room we renovated…we moved to another house in the country. I have spent the last few years making this house a home, all with treasures from flea markets, antique stores and Craigslist finds. I love the thrill of a treasure hunt and using my finds to decorate! I also love cooking and entertaining and I consider my home and my kitchen table my mission field.

Overall, this whole blog-writing experience has been such a place of growth and vulnerability. It is so scary to put one’s heart out there like this, but if any of our stories touch your heart and inspire you on your own journey, what a deep and profound honor! I pray Jesus will heal your heart where it has been broken, that he will refresh you with the newness of his full and abundant life, and fill yours to the brim with his lavish and abundant blessings.
