As a Bible teacher and retreat speaker…

Shawna weaves together Scriptures, stories and songs to help people encounter God so they can experience the fullness of His abiding presence. Her passion is for people to know God, trust His ways, obey His Word and love Him with all their hearts and minds. Shawna would love to partner with you at your next women’s retreat, conference or banquet.

“The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.”

1 Timothy 1:14 NIV
