Happy Hour #153: Shauna Shanks

Shauna Shanks joins me for a special live edition of The Happy Hour - recorded in my backyard in the sweltering July heat for our Summer Book Club. Shauna is the author of our second book, A Fierce Love. She's also a wife, mother, and entrepreneur. Shauna and her husband, Micah, have been married for more than a decade, and they're currently building a house out of shipping containers with their three boys on an Ohio farm. A Fierce Love is Shauna's story of fighting for her marriage through her husband's infidelity. In our conversation, we chat about how her journal entries became the framework for her book and the processes through which she went to get her story published. Shauna also graciously answers some of the questions our book club members and I had about her story. She shares about how she and her husband are fighting for their marriage today and the sacrifices they're making to connect with each other. And finally, we chat all about their latest venture and what Shauna describes as marriage bootcamp - building a house out of shipping containers. She describes their house, but I thought a picture was the best way to go. Check out their awesome new digs. {You can listen to the show HERE. And of course, I would love if you would share with your friends.
