Welcome! My name is Dr. Julie Shannon and my passion is encouraging others in the reality of their lives. I have walked the roads of infertility, singleness, and financial insecurity, to name a few. My hope is to share stories and solutions that might encourage you to have hope and find community and a new perspective on life. We all have issues but we also have the potential to thrive in our situations.
I have an undergraduate degree in Radio/TV Communication from Stephen F. Austin State University, a Master in Christian Education degree from Dallas Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Educational Ministry degree from DTS as well. I am a Tri Delta alum, former board member of a community nonprofit, and currently serve on the board of the Association for Women in Ministry Professions in a marketing capacity. I am also a contributor to Invitation to Educational Ministry: Foundations of Transformative Christian Education by George M. Hillman Jr. and Sue G. Edwards.
Any free time I have is spent enjoying the great outdoors, and engaging in activities such as photography, piano, reading, and a newly discovered joy of sketching.
