Why Holes to Whole?

For this post, I created a podcast explaining how the blog got it’s name. Sit back and listen to the story. 🙂

Shannon Stedman

Hello all! I’m so glad you’re here. I’m Shannon Stedman, a Jesus-loving wife and mother of five. Ever since I was a young girl, I loved to write. I have felt God calling me to begin a writing ministry for a few years now. Several years ago, I began a blog, but after a period of time God called me in a different direction. Feel free to check out my past blog The Celebratory Single Mom. I am now in a new season of life and am so grateful to have the opportunity to write again.

My prayer for this blog is that it’s an encouragement to women anywhere. I will be sharing my journey with you; the joys, the sorrows, the beauty and the mess. I hope and pray that through my sharing, you will hear God’s story of love and transformation in my life. My goal is to create a safe community where women can share their struggles and triumphs and support one another. So please get involved, leave a comment, contact me and share posts and the blog with others. I look forward to hearing from you!

I plan to post once a week on Wednesdays. I will share authentically and with a great deal of vulnerability, giving you a window into my heart. Even though that feels pretty scary at times, that is the direction God is calling me to and I told Him that I’m along for the ride. My writing will include a variety of topics relating to my personal experiences and faith journey. Some things that you can expect to read about here include marriage, parenting, blended families, mental health, addiction and eating disorders, brokeness, and recovery.

Come back next Wednesday to hear why the site is titled “Holes to Whole”. Better yet, navigate to the right side of the site and subscribe by email to receive a message straight to your inbox every time a new post is available.

Thank you for joining me on this rich journey of life. Together we can do what we could never do alone!
