Staying Saved: [stey-ing / seyvd]: A loosely used expression, when you are not trying to go off on someone or something. A term of desperation used because you know you need Jesus every hour of the day. The acts and resources utilized for preservation in all areas of your life; Shannon: [shan-uh n] :The Girl. The Legend. The Blogger ;)
And, welcome to my tiny little space on the Internet. I am the one and only Shannon. And, yes I am trying to stay saved.
It's hard out here, peeps. I am just a Christian girl, who is trying to live her life to the fullest. I want to please God, be a blessing to others, have fun, be an awesome wife, love on my baby, clean my house, snag my dream job, become an entrepreneur, stay slayed, etc. etc. and etc. etc. Yeah, I got major goals. But, I don't know if you are like me and have experienced major setbacks or roadblocks. Maybe, someone or something let you down.
And, I am not going to lie. There were some times, days and maybe even years, where I was super discouraged by the direction of my life . But, something finally clicked. No, not that everything is perfect now or has fell in to place. Yet, I am learning more and more to accept undeserving grace from God and His plans for my life. Secondly, I work toward allowing a little more self -grace and not being my own worst critic. It is not always easy, but I thank God for growth.
Saving Shannon is truly a constant reminder for me to stay focus (My lack of attention span will probably be its own separate blog post.) Despite all of those things around me, I don't want to lose who I am. I want to be everything God wants me to be. And, I want to have everything, He wants me to have.
So, I hope you find inspiration, camaraderie and a good laugh. Come visit my blog anytime or subscribe by email. The Home page will include every blogpost. In the coming days, you will be able to click on one of the following tabs for specific topics:
Love & The Hub
I have been happily married to a wonderful man named Marcus K. since 2007. I think he is pretty awesome. He is the reason that I heart marriage and I deserve so many other marriages to succeed. On this page, I will share some lessons learned, love stories, and "today I don't like you" moments.
So, when a ship is sinking or even if life's circumstances puts you in distress, a call for help is sent out. And, Lord Jesus, I desperately need help, guidance and deliverance everyday. In order for me to try and stay saved, you may see a few scriptures and songs that are getting me through the day.
I have a chocolate and a Coke addiction that I am desperately trying to overcome.Well, not really. But, I know that I should. Seriously, I know that I could do better, so here you will find my writings to be geared towards healthy lifestyle choices that I am trying to make. One step and prayer at a time.
Sooo, I have debt. And, sometimes it feels like concrete walls of debt. But, I promise I can see those walls tumbling down. I always trying to find ways to save money or even create a side hustle. You will see what I am up to on this tab.
This will be a listing of books and url addresses that I just think are awesome and have blessed me tremendously. I will definitely make references to them in SOS, but you will always find a quick listing here
I was blessed to give birth to a beautiful baby girl on July 15, 2018 - Gracyn. But, the road was certainly not easy. It includes the loss of my first daughter Mackenzie and six more miscarriages. Yes, 7 pregnancy losses in 6 years. But, through the Grace of God, I made it.
And, that's it for now. I hope you will try and STAY SAVED with me. I know it's hard, but I think we are worth it.
