Shannon has been married to dear husband, Gary for sixteen years. They have four beautiful children, Kortney (14), Jacob (deceased), Kami (10) and Brock (8). Shannon is the director of Fairlawn Preschool in Columbus. Shannon enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, gardening and being an encouraging mom at all of her children’s activities.
Shannon is going to speak about her own personal journey from grief to joy. She will be sharing about the death of their son, Jacob. How important it is as a mother to walk our children through the grieving process and allow them to grieve, but also talk to them about the hope we have in Jesus. How sometimes out of the darkness of our lives great joy can come shining through and we can share that with others.
