Revealing the Writer

I am a woman that wears numerous “hats” in my daily life.  Some of these include: mother, fiancé, sister, friend, teacher, coach, artist, housekeeper, errand runner, taxi driver, etc…

The most important hat is the one which determines that I am a child of God.  I have shown a crown, as it is a reminder that I am the daughter of the King.  It is only in this place that I am able to be the person that I am meant to become.  These writings are revelations that I am discovering as I find joy in the journey and He teaches me to overcome obstacles and walk victoriously in Him.

God often reveals His heart and His truth for me through images, so the images that are included in my posts speak specifically to me, or visually represent His heart for me.

It is my hope that you may somehow hear God’s own heart for you, as you read what I have recorded on these pages.  Blessings of  joy to you as you walk out your own journey!

THANK YOU!

Okay, since I am not really wanting to post this on the main page, and it is a deal that asks me to reveal more information about myself, I figure this is the appropriate place to post this…

Thank you to http://throughhimwithhiminhim.wordpress.com for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger Award.  If you have not visited her blog, please do.  I love the way that she weaves together words and images to glorify God.

The deal is that I am to share ten things that you may not know about me and pass on this award…

1.  I am the proud mother of twin sixteen-year-old boys.  They are my joy and keep my life very full!

2. For me, driving must be accompanied by loud singing.  If you see me driving, I am likely singing.  Don’t worry, you can pretend you don’t know me, as I am sure it looks a bit odd…

3. Color keeps life interesting.  This is why I love nature, art, fabric, texture, adjectives…

4.  I am a middle school English teacher and gymnastics coach and I LOVE my job!

5.  Friends are my lifeline for maintaining sanity and staying grounded.

6.  If an activity requires movement, especially outdoors, I love it!

7.  Coffee talk with a close friend is a glimpse of heaven on earth.

8.  There is nothing sweeter nor more likely to fill my heart to overflowing than family snuggle time with my boys.

9.  I am an early riser.  I have made friends with 3:30 am so that I may spend time with Him in the quiet stillness to start my day.

10.  My hope and prayer is that in all that I do and say, His light might be evident in me.

Please check out the blogs below, as I think you will enjoy them as much as I do!  I am passing this Kreativ Blogger Award to:

  1. Hello gifted writer!
    I’m a friend of your moms and enjoy your insightful postings very much. Your mom is the sweetest by the way, although you already know that. 🙂
    Blessings, June

  2. I get email notifications daily and take my break with youto read your wonderful words in my email versus coming to your site. I am loving your writing and am excited that you share it with others who need the daily lessons and who appreciate your words, wisdom and relationship with God. Love you Shanny! xo Meg

  3. I am finally reading your blog – don’t ask why I haven’t before. Nothing to do with you. My guess is I wasn’t ready. Wow – I am blown away by your thoughts and insights. Keep it up 🙂

  4. I absolutely love this–and especially the lovely crown!! Yes, we need a daily reminder that we are royal daughters of the King–‘specially when we’re walking through the muck! God bless you richly today, and throughout the New Year!

      • Hi Shannon–I wanted to tell you how touched and moved I was by your recent offer of “practical” help. It was so unexpected–the way God’s blessings often are! Periodically, even “Party Caddo” gets buried under a pile of life’s dust. A bunch of stuff just happened all at once, and marred the simple, quiet Christmas I was looking forward to; I became overwhelmed, overtired, discouraged–temporarily lost my JOY. My faith didn’t waiver, as the Lord is always very near–but the tempter was busy whispering about all manner of things, including that my blog doesn’t really serve a purpose. Since its beginning, I’ve told God it’s His until the day He wants me to quit–and yesterday I thought I might be able to use financial issues as an excuse to bail out! But God interceded, so I guess I’d better get back to my clipboard!! Again, thank you so much for your generous heart, Shannon–what a lovely, encouraging gesture you made–even though all I really wanted was BIG prayers. I’m so curious, now, as to how near you are to me–you said you’re in the Seattle area–I’m in north Lynnwood. God bless you–love, sis Caddo

      • Big prayers are yours,sis Caddo; and I am south. I am in the Northeast Tacoma/Federal Way area. 🙂 I will let you know if I am ever wandering up in your neck of the woods, as it would be fun to meet for a cuppa. God bless you big this brand new year! Love to you also, Shannon

  5. What a beautiful and exciting blog and inspiration to women of God. Shannon, I am so glad to be following this blog, and special thank you to Dicky To who connected us and for your visit to LightWriters (http://5wise.wordpress.com) Shannon, I just received the ABC Award from NissiKnows (http://nissiknows.wordpress.com) an inspirationional writer from London, UK, and was invited to share it with others, and you are one of 3 bloggers I am sharing this award with…to use however you will…and especially with a hug and thanks for the writing you share with others…You can read about the ABC here: http://5wise.wordpress.com/awards/ God bless!

    • Susan, thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. It is such a blessing to know that God can use my willing obedience to bless another on His behalf. I am enjoying the blessing found in your poetry and photos! Blessings to you!
      ❤ Shannon

  6. Shannon, just had to return and give you this award…I’ve been away but manage to keep connecting to your posts and finding them such a blessing — and your prayers also. Here’s an award you may have already received, but I’m giving it again: The Very Inspirational Blogger Award…for use as you will. Read about this award at: http://5wise.wordpress.com/awards/

    • Thank you Susan! I am so encouraged to know that what I am learning is a blessing to others as well. Bless you as you take on this new week and continue in your new job. 🙂

  7. Dear Shannon,

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and having a look at one of my short, tentative kind of writings:-) – I’m honored.
    I just love your blog (looks very cool and elegant at the same time) and your writings. Your style just captivates me: beautiful and simple, elegant and gentle at the same time. And very much heaven-inspired. You are just God-blessed and talented – please keep writing!:-)

    Blessings from Hungary,

    Hajnalka (“wordwatcherdawn”)

    • Dear Hajnalka,

      Thank you so much for such encouraging words! It is such a treasure to have a global community of believers right at my fingertips. I am blessed to know that He uses what I give out of obedience to Him, to bless another. He is so good! I look forward to reading more of what He places on your heart to write as well!

      Blessings to you as well,
      Shannon

      • Thank you so much for your kind reply. I just would like to say that what I mainly do is translating Christian (mostly Puritan) materials into Hungarian. So most of my posts are in Hungarian – the reason why I’m saying this is that I wouldn’t want to take your precious time unnecessarily or cause disappointments – I will try to put English material, too, but it might not be as often as I would love to. But thank you so much for your kind interest and encouragement!
        I look forward to reading your encouraging and uplifting posts. God bless you.

  8. “… I am an early riser. I have made friends with 4am so that I may spend time with Him in the quiet stillness to start my day…”

    Samuel Johnson ate dinner with John Wesley and totally enjoyed himself until Wesley stood up to leave at 8 PM. Johnson said, “The night is still young, let’s continue talking.”

    “4 AM comes early,” replied Wesley as he turned and left.

    Wesley believed all good Christians, especially Methodists, should rise early and spend at least two hours in prayer each day. If only we Christians still followed his example.

    God bless as you rise early and seek Him.

    • Thank you Larry. It has become my most treasured time of day, as He is faithful to whisper His heart to mine in the still silence of the early morning…
      Blessings to you also!

    • Hi Kevin,
      Thank you so much for such positive and encouraging feedback. Daily, He is faithful to whisper His heart to mine, as I seek Him to start each day. May your love for Him continue to shine brightly through all that you write!
      Blessings,
      Shannon

    • Thank you so much for being such an encouragement to me as I seek to obey what He is asking. I am encouraged and challenged by the wisdom and words that you present on your blog.
      Blessings as you continue to be more than a conquerer in His Name!
      Shannon

  9. Shannon, thank you for your obedience to God’s call for you to share your journey with us. Your writing has inspired me to keep running the race in order to win the prize…

    Blessings to you!

    Warmest regards,
    Mary from the Philippines

    • Mary, you are a treasure to Him! Thank you for your encouragement and I will pray for His endurance and strength for you to keep running strong!
      God bless,
      Shannon

  10. Since I am at a loss where to email you non-public, I will just write it here: I have a 25 Day Countdown til’ Christmas coming up and would you guest blog a day? The only guideline is that it be Christmas related– a story, memory, reflection, devotion, recipe (but I think I may have a lot of these!) — whatever you would like to do. I trust you will be guided if you are interested. I would post as you send and if you want to add a pic fine– if not I can support your text with retro art. Of course we can inset your photo and link to your blog. (I think I like to try to do this for the postings. But, whatever, we would be in agreement.)
    I am posting most days but I have invited a few friends to share also. Should be fun! D

  11. THANK YOU for coming my way at BY THE MIGHTY MUMFORD. Fellow Christians are always welcome. I’m going to subscribe…you have some good stuff, blessed of the Lord!

  12. Matthew 5:16

    Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

    I look at life as an opportunity to express the gifts that God has blessed us with to help our fellow neighbour. By doing so we encounter more and more the grace of God, which transforms our life.The capacity to love God, with all our mind, heart, soul and strength and our neighbour as ourself are one and the same reality. One can not exist without the other.

    May God bless you and grant you the strength and courage to bless those around you.

  13. Hello Shannon Elizabeth Moreno,

    I hope it is not too late to wish you a wonderful New Year. May 2013 bring you more happiness, love, and success. I would like to thank you because you continue following my blog. I hope my blog posts do not disappoint and that your visits in there have been a joyful ride.

    Thank you again, many blessings and much love to you. 🙂

    Subhan Zein

  14. What an absolute, predestined, wonderful blessing to have stumbled across your blog. I receive and accept the Divine revelations sent from Father God, through you to me. I love your ministry, prophetic gift and prayers. Praise the Lord!! Thank you for sharing.

  15. I stumbled onto your blog, and I’m so happy that I did! I’m an English teacher and love to write, but I struggle to write poetry. In fact, I used to write music and dreamed of writing worship music, but lyrics are my Everest, I guess! I’m looking forward to reading more.

    • Thank you Katie! I too am an English teacher. 🙂 The more you write, the more it will flow out of you. I love that you can write music, as it is such a powerful form of praise! I would love to read what you write too.

  16. Dear Shannon
    I am truly impressed read about you. I think you are another my inspiration blog.I am so glad know you here. I really love poem but not a poem writer like you. I think I could learn from you 🙂 blessing to you.
    Regards
    Karina

    • Dear Karina,
      Thank you so much for your kind encouragement! The beautiful thing about poetry is that it is simply our heart’s song to our Savior. There are no rights or wrongs in how we write our “songs”, but rather that they are written for His glory. All that you have posted that I have read, reads as a beautiful song from your heart, clearly written to honor Him.
      Blessings to you,
      Shannon

  17. Thank you for following EFED. I look forward to sharing more with you in the future. God bless you.

  18. Hi there! I wanted you to know that I nominated your blog for the Liebster Award! To find out more about that, you can see my upcoming post when it gets published later today! You don’t have to accept it, but either way, I wanted to bless you and that, by doing so, more people will see what you have to say. Lauralee

  19. Hi Shannon, thanks for visiting my blog. I’m glad it brought me here! I look forward to reading more of your encouraging posts . . . . I loved gymnastics as a kid, and also enjoy outdoor activities. Blessings to you and your family this Christmas!

  20. Hi Shannon, I’m so glad that you came by my blog and that it led me to your blog!! Thank you. I love your writings and I look forward to reading more. Many Blessings, Hannah

  21. Hi Shannon
    considering dreaming about excellence tonight…

    YAY! I’m giving the excellence awards tomorrow…

    Your blog is on my list of EXCELLENCE blogs and here is an award to demonstrate my sincere gratitude:
    http://hunt4truth.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/excellence-awards/
    The link is scheduled in my posts at USA Eastern Time NOON – on 1/24/2014 (tomorrow).
    You can copy the badge and have some fun with giving the award to others too!
    Blessings.
    ~ Eric

  22. Oh my! What a treasure trove of inspiration, encouragement and any other adjective that can be expressed to the gifts of the Lord!!
    I am SOOOO very glad the Holy Spirit allowed you to stop by my new blog that I might find yours! I no longer question the Lord’s motives when He tells me to do something (not that I don’t, you know kind of wonder 😉 )
    He has shown me that His “Church,” His spiritual “Body” is still alive and definitely kicking!! I have been involved in online ministry for years, up to about a little over a year ago (health and computer issues) and I have not seen the Body of Christ come together as I have since I started “watching” the blogging phenom! In the little over a year that I have been gone, it has exploded with His children adding their insights, experiences, AND their gifts to this medium which reaches literally around the world like no “brick and mortar” organization could!
    It didn’t take long to realize I had to follow your blog and even though I tell this to many I have started following, I don’t tell it to everyone!
    The Bible tells us “that from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” I like to paraphrase that for this type of online ministry (service) as, “from the abundance of the heart, the pen writes!” It doesn’t take reading very much to see where a person’s “LOVE” lies and I am always amazed at the diversity of those gifts and experiences!
    Okay, enough preaching! I stopped by to see what the Holy Spirit had for me and was rewarded for my faithfulness. I WILL be back! (I still have to do what He tells me to do!!) Until then, I will be praying God’s continued and abundant blessings upon your and yours and especially as you continue in your heart of service to Him and to ALL He brings through your sites!!

  23. Hi!
    I so enjoy reading your posts! I recently was named in a “One Lovely Blog” award, which I’d not heard of until my blog was named. I, in turn, now would like to nominate you for the award. Thank you for your faithfulness and beautiful words. Here is the link to my post for more info.
