About Me

We live in a world that can be hard on us and most of us are recovering from something that struck just a little too close to home.

We develop habits to organize ourselves in our world, to make sense of it. Some of these habits are satisfying and helpful, others hold us back.

My name is Shannon and I am a recovering perfectionist and a recovering evangelical, these two things are not entirely separate.

I am learning to discover grace in all its various forms, to stand on my own two feet and to develop habits that align with my values.

I live in Tanzania with my husband and our recently acquired son, our 2 stray dogs and our chickens. Development work pays my bills and writing keeps me sane.

This is where I tell my stories, I am immensely grateful you are taking the time to read them.
