Teacher & Speaker
From the moment we could sit still in our mother’s arms, we have loved stories. Stories around the supper table are some of the best moments in life and are the times we best come to know these people we call family. Much of our heritage is learned through the passing down of stories. This is exactly how the Bible was passed down for generations yet today people seem to believe that the Bible is a list of do’s and don’ts instead of a beautiful story of love, betrayal, forgiveness and redemption.
Shannon uses her divine knowledge of Scripture to put the story back together again. Many people have several pieces of the puzzle, yet they have no idea how it all fits together in the greatest love story ever told. This is what Shannon does! She has an amazing way of connecting the pieces while sharing some of the funniest yet applicable personal stories you have ever heard.
One minute you are laughing and the next minute you realize that the Holy Spirit just spoke and you have an “aha” moment that will stay with you forever.

Song Writer, Author & Speaker
A lifelong love of words and music has led singer/songwriter Staci Frenes to cultivate songs and stories into something strong and beautiful and brave. Staci’s acoustic folk-pop songs have inspired not only audiences at her concerts all over the country, but viewers of major network shows such as The Biggest Loser, America’s Next Top Model, and Nashville as well as in nationally released feature films.
Staci’s songs reflect an artist and Jesus follower who is navigating the messy, unpredictable waters of change and seasons of transformation that include loss and the ever-shifting roles of career and parenting.
Intricate, authentic and hopeful, Staci Frenes continues to cultivate truth that resonates in every aspect of life…through music, speaking and writing… she is confident that the process can be as beautiful as the finish.
