Creativity Takes Courage {Interview With Shannan Martin}

Our May interview in our video series, Creativity Takes Courage, begins right now!


For those of you that are new to the blog I want to tell you a little bit about the free series.

Four months ago we expanded our creative network to offer free videos, new online courses, live “chats” and now interviews with courageous lovelies from around the world.

My first interview of the Creativity Takes Courage series was with the amazing Stephanie Lee.

The February interview was with my good friend Melody Ross.

The March interview was with the lovely Edie Wadsworth.

The April interview was with my friend across the ocean Pamela DuMont.

The May interview is with the funny and open hearted Shannan Martin!

I met Shannan Martin 4-5 years ago through blogging.

I instantly loved her sense of humor, love of family, her beautiful faith and the way she could buy a weeks worth of groceries for $47.78:-)

She is one of the most gifted writers that I know and I have loved seeing her life unfold over the years.

Shannan and her husband moved to their dream farm many years ago and in the process of trying to start a family found a whole new life.

A life they never could have imagined.

A life that is even more beautiful than the one they had planned in their hearts and heads.

I know you will be inspired to give more and judge less after watching this video.

You may even find yourself asking the Lord how YOU can be His hands and feet on this earth.

Shannan, thank you for taking the time to get all of the kids out of the house so we could talk and laugh (a lot).

I  am looking forward to the day when I am sitting in your living room eating chips and salsa (and stealing your curtains when you are not watching).

    Whoa. Ever have one of those “it’s a really small world moments?” I just popped over to Shannon’s site and it looks like we’re practically neighbors. Like, for real. Can’t wait to watch the video and start stalking, I mean, following Shannon’s site.

        Hi Shannan (sorry I spelled your name wrong earlier!) I’m in Elkhart. 🙂 I just posted a comment to your site a little bit ago. I about fell over when I saw a Martin’s bag of chips and then the photo of Krogers. Small world!

    This was such a treat! I’ve been a fan of FPFG for a while so getting to *see* her and hear more of her story was wonderful (and getting to *know* you better too).

    I LOVE HER! I was so excited when I saw that it was her…can’t wait to watch it. She is one of those people you just know you would love in person…
