Everything you never knew you wanted to know.
I am a writer, a minister, a born teacher and an unrepentant do-gooder. I'm a little bit country, a little bit city and little bit global. I was born in Oklahoma and raised in Texas, but I really grew up during my years as an missionary kid in Bandung, Indonesia and Penang, Malaysia. Now I live and work and minister where I always said I wouldn't: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. I get to be a wife to Brent, a mom to Erin, Emma and Gracie, and a Nana to Brennan. After years of creating programs and raising money in the non-profit world, I now get to lavish God's love on children, families and hurting people for a living.
Wanna know more? Really? Okay! I love road trips, mission trips and reading. I love musicals, hot tea with milk and HGTV. I love the smell of garlic and onions sauteeing in butter and I will get up in the middle of the night to eat cookie dough straight out of the tube. I adore (and will buy) most anything with chippy, peeling paint, and I get energized by shopping in dusty places full of old things waiting for new life. But, after years of chasing things that don't matter, what I really, really want to do with my life is simply show up in the places where God can give me holy glimpses of the work He does in and through His people.
My Crazy Normal Life
SHANNON CHEEK DAVIS
I bet my life is a lot like yours. It ain't no novel, though it contains plenty of drama (mostly mine!). It is a ramshackle, run-on sentence made up of moments which are either completely normal, or terrifyingly crazy, and mostly, often, somewhere in between.
