Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I am Shanon Roberts. This site is fairly new, although I’m not new to blogging. In fact, I set my first trembling foot into the blogging world just over three years ago, when I began liveeatsweat.com
If you check it out, you will walk with me through my journey to becoming whole in spirit, soul and body. The premise, hypothesis in my mind, was to see if I would in fact feel whole as a result of daily getting into the Word of God (yes, I’m a Christian-wife-mommy-working-blogger), eating whole and clean foods, and finally moving my body. I also wanted to one day participate in a figure competition (ha! God had a different plan!), while healing my body.
Over the course of three years, my key relationships grew stronger, along with my spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical muscles. My husband and I went from struggling, to thriving. My children and I went from close, to oh so much closer. I grew from flippantly getting into God’s Word, to daily not being able to live without it (plus publishing a few devotionals). My heart was reshaped from being swept up in the tide of circumstances and feeling like I was physically drowning, to seeing most circumstances through the lense of God’s Word (albeit not 100%, we’re all a work in progress). My mind transformed from thoughts of worry, fear and concern of the opinions and judgments of others, to knowing who I am in Christ and being able to stand tall regardless of what others may conclude. Physically, I travailed Spartan races and crossed finish lines. However, my composition is about the same as three years ago, with a few additional nicks and bruises. These scars come partly from growing older, but also from a skin cancer diagnosis and a biopsy confirming I did not have breast cancer.
With increased strength and a few blemishes, it is time to do something new. My hypothesis has in fact been confirmed, I do feel whole when daily in God’s Word, eating well and moving my body. In fact, I feel more than whole, I am whole. However, those elements of my life are the background, what goes on behind the scenes, to enable and empower me to be who God has called me to be, with the gifts He has blessed my life with.
With being whole comes feeling more connected to God, and more creative. This creativity, a gift from God, is what He desires be at the forefront. Not for my fame, but for His glory and to utilize His gifts, to creatively and passionately serve others, by encouraging, supporting and edifying others on their journeys. The vision for this next chapter in life (and my hope and prayer), is to begin creatively helping others move beyond places where they feel stuck, by coming alongside them, and walking through a creative process with them. This voyage will result in an outcome and place in life perhaps never imagined, or perhaps, always longed for.
As with the past three years and the initial goal of the first blog, this new chapter will likely take twists and turns. However, I know all roads will lead to glorifying and loving God, while serving and loving others. This will be the constant heart of the creative process that pulsates from any works of writing, design or art created (and possibly consulting or speaking) by Him, through me, for others.
