Born in William Beaumont Hospital in El Paso, TX while her dad was stationed there in the Army, she is the oldest of three children. Her parents moved around alot throughout her life, but by the age of 2, Shannon knew the tune and words to 6 different songs because her mother would sing around the house teaching her to sing early, and it has become evident that the call to sing has been on her life ever since that age.
By the age of 15, Shannon's parents settled in Cleveland, TN where she has lived ever since. At 17, she received her calling to sing for the Lord, Jesus Christ, and to minister peace and healing to all who would hear and truly hear what the Spirit of God would say to them through song.
Before entering into this full time evangelistic ministry, Shannon was on praise and worship teams for 20 years where she learned how to sing harmony, and how to be submissive to those who are in places of authority over her (Although this was learned through her childhood first!).
Always taking her calling seriously, Shannon has always allowed the Lord to lead her to the songs she sings never singing one without His permission. Every song pours out of her heart with the hope that the hearer will receive what God is saying in such a beautiful avenue of ministry.
In her mid to late 20's, Shannon received the gift of healing that is spoken of in 1 Corinthians 12:9, and operates in this gift often. She, herself, has walked in Divine health ever since receiving this gift.
As Shannon continues in her walk with the Lord, He is directing her paths into teaching His Word, and writing books that teach the uncompromised Word of God.
Shannon has been married for 29 years and has two adult children. Her daughter, Danyelle, is 29 yrs old, has graduated from Rhema Bible Training Center, is married to Pastor Samuel Burger (Pastor of Chestuee Worship Center), and is currently living in Delano, TN. Her son, Justin, is 26 yrs old, married to Tami Mason Pickens, and currently living in Gilberts, Illinois, & now have a daughter who is 2 months old.
