  1. Hudson Russell Davis

    Shawna, you are very kind. I am married now, but have never and will never forget those days. I do still have a passion to help people and both with contentment and with turning all energies towards loving God EVEN in the midst. I pray he blesses you soon, but may he strengthen you now. God bless.

  2. I used to religiously read your articles over at Crosswalk…they were so encouraging. many years later, I am still single but still encouraged and I found this site, because I needed to share some of this with a friend. I pray you continue to inspire others to be content in the Lord.
