Speaker and Founder
I didn't grow up in a Christian home, but was taught how to respect others and to strive to be the best. I started my relationship with the Lord when I reached out to Him to save me from the darkness in my life. He became my strength. Everything I was looking for in this world to fulfill me, I found in Christ.
I remained abstinent until marriage, but gave my heart away by dating men that weren't drawing me closer to Christ or encouraging me in my faith. My testimony is one of being the good girl at church on Sunday- doing some of the right Christian "things", and then going out and "having fun" on Saturday nights.
The Lord grabbed a hold of my heart and convicted me of the double life I was leading. He called me to be more and started preparing me to lead and serve in ministry.
I have spoken on platforms in front of several hundred people, won speaking competitions and spoken at various venues over the last 10 years. My speaking is derived from how the Lord's worked in my life and the truth of His Word. I have not been to seminary school or have any theological background. Therefore, I speak from my testimony. I know the Lord put me through trials and gave me blessings in my life, so that I can help others. Through a lot of prayer and listening to the Lord, I craft my speech to what He wants me to say and what He has put on my heart - not what Shanan wants to say. My prayer is that His will be done and not mine.
Once you've prayed about whether or not I am the right speaker for your event, please reach out to me and I would love to tell you more about my story.
Speaker and Curriculum Director
I grew up attending church but it wasn’t until halfway through high school that I realized what it really meant to have a personal relationship with Jesus. I remember being so overcome with emotion over the fact that God sent His Son for me!
Even though I had this change in my life I still struggled with insecurities and self-esteem issues. This wasn’t helped by the fact that I was painfully shy- to the degree that I wouldn’t even ask a stranger what time it was. I tried to satisfy my emotional needs by defining myself and finding my value through earthly relationships; striving to be accepted and approved of by others. This carried over to my spiritual life as well and I continually tried to ‘earn’ God’s love and approval by my actions.
Through many years of emotional and spiritual growth and healing, I learned to believe that I was not only fully loved by the Lord but also fully accepted by Him; that I didn’t need to strive to earn His approval or love. While I knew I had been freed from the penalty of sin since the time I was saved, I had not experienced the type and degree of freedom that resulted from this understanding. Having experienced freedom in this depth has made me passionate about sharing this potential with other women- to walk and live in the freedom that is truly meant to be ours in Christ.
My passion is to help women realize their value and potential as they walk with the Lord; to realize the depth of what it means to be free in Christ and to recognize the enemy’s ploys to try to keep us from this freedom. I have been called by the Lord to teach, lead, guide and disciple women through the study of the Word. I also feel strongly that by exposing young women to these truths at an early age, we can help them avoid the pitfalls that I struggled with well into adulthood.
