About Sheavaun

Hey, I’m Sheavaun (shev-ONNE)… 

I tend to process my personal stuff verbally and since I have a problem keeping a daily journal, I somehow wound up writing a blog. 

As a young wife and mother I 

  • buried my 8 month old son
  • lost my Dad to cancer when he was mid-fifties,
  • constantly dealt with feelings of guilt, hopelessness, defeat and anger

  … all while learning how to raise one of my daughters with Down syndrome; not understanding that she also has autism and was later to be declared legally blind.

A failed marriage confirmed for me that nothing was turning out the way I had dreamed it would.

I was wounded, afraid, and desperate.

 And I felt really, really ugly and unwanted.

Until I learned this:

God can and will do exceedingly more than we can ask or imagine.  (Ephesians 3:20)

I believe it. 

He showed up when I was at my darkest, most broken, and has patiently loved me into healing and hope. He’s good like that.

Avoiding my pain was not the answer; but working through it with trusted people and friends has quite literally saved my life.

I feel like I’m really living again. Learning to be healthy emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically.

(I actually lost 30 pounds! I talk about it here)

My hope is to share the bits and pieces He has taught me… and point you to His goodness.

We’re all a work in progress, but if I can add my voice to the many others out there that can help put one of the pieces of the puzzle together for you — similarly to how someone else’s voice helped me — then I am grateful.

Just paying it forward.

  • and if you are in pain, please find someone you can trust to help you navigate these choppy waters. A counselor, pastor, friends… hard things are hard, but inevitable. Let someone walk with you through it.

 

I would love to connect with you!

 be happy. be healthy. be beautiful. be you. Absolutely.
