About Me

Hi there!  My name is Shawn, thanks for dropping by. I am a wife, married to the love of my life, Dave.  I am a totally-in-love mom to three amazing daughters.  I am the wacky youngest sister to eight marvelous siblings, daughter of the best Mom and Dad in the world, daughter-in-love of the sweetest in-laws one could ever hope for, favorite sister-in-law to all those who dared to marry into our chaotic family, and crazy aunt to a growing second and third generation.


Our family had the wonderful privilege of spending fourteen years as missionaries to Papua New Guinea.  For more than a decade of that time we lived in the remote and primitive Simbai tribe and we loved every minute of it.  Today, we live in South Carolina and work in the leadership of our our mission agency. Soon, however, we will be moving back to the Asia-Pacific Rim to invest our lives in national leaders.


I am an experienced homeschool mom, blogger, librarian, and author. I am fulfilling my dream of encouraging others by teaching history through scribbling about the men and women who have inspired and changed me.
