    A Lifetime of Best Friends

    I've had best friends for most of the seasons in my life. All have been blessings in their own ways. I keep my circle small. So I'm thankful for the friends I have and have had over the years.

    Tattoo or No Tattoo?

    Tattoo or No Tattoo?

    I don't have any tattoos. There's no good reason. I like tattoos. I enjoy the art of them. I just never took the leap.

    Would You Rather? (Daddy Daughter Edition)

    Kids have to be comfortable in the lighter everyday conversations to be comfortable in the heavier discussions. This episode is a simple "Would You Rather?" game with my daughter Zoe. I learned a few things I didn't know...

    My Mom Broke Her Arm at my Baptism

    My Mom Broke Her Arm at my Baptism

    I'm a Mama's Boy, but a reluctant Mama's Boy who pulled away a lot when I was young. I PURPOSELY created some space from Mama, but that doesn't mean I have to close her out. This is that story. I love you Ma!

RetiredNoob ,

Thank You!!!!

Greetings Shannon
I love listening to podcasts. Shamefully, I have never submitted a review until now. The authenticity of your storytelling so moved me that I was compelled to write this review to let you know how much I appreciate your podcast. You have inspired me to continue my podcast by simply being myself. Thanks again for your genuine storytelling as it’s heartwarming & encouraging. When I am in position to do so I plan to express my gratitude monetarily, however, I will make sure to give you a shout out once I launch my little podcast The Cocoa Butter PODcast, especially since I am from ChiTown & that will be my base audience. Thank you SO much for your contribution & sharing The Gift of You, with us.

P.S. I use the same strategy with the Starbucks coffee 😂 but for free99 by asking for a cup of hot water & then from my box of Passion Tazo Tea I purchased from Walmart, for the same price as one cup of tea from Starbucks, I drop my Tazo tea bag in my free99 Starbucks cup of hot water & sit down & say, welcome to my office! Blessings 😇

Would you rather

...have a kiss on the forehead or the cheek 🥹🥹🥹 The daddy daughter episode is so sweet. What a sweet storyteller. Thanks to you and your daughter for sharing

SeaCros ,

Always on POINT

I happen to stumble across this podcast and I must say this cat is legit. His stories grab you and he is very descriptive. Also the music he plays (intro/outro) are always hot. Shannon makes you think back to times of the past and he even sparked me to start writing. Thanks Shannon… “Wear more suits” SDC
