About

 
I write songs of faith for the people I love, and I never think anyone else will hear them. But they usually do. You've probably heard a few yourself, and that's why you're here. Welcome to my site. 
I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that we are children of a living, loving God. We believe His Son, Jesus Christ, is the Savior of the world, who underwent immeasurable suffering and gave His life to ransom us from our sins and offer us eternal life.
 
I don't know what a perfect family looks like, but I know what a happy family looks like, and only once in a while does it look like the pictures. The rest of the time, it's a little chaotic. Or a lot. But despite all of our noise and our messiness, I can't think of a group of people I'd rather be with than my family -- which is a good thing, because I believe that families can be together forever.
 
I never wanted to pursue a career--I just wanted to be a mom. I couldn't think of a better place for me to be than home, or of a better person to raise my children than me. But along the pathway of family life, I've found a few little gems of personal opportunity, and I've had some great experiences while pursuing them. Still, I'm first and foremost a mom, and now a grandma, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Following is a list of random things about me, if you're interested.
      • I'm a homebody.
      • I only own 8 pairs of shoes, and I only ever wear 4 or 5 of them.
      • I took up snow skiing when I was 30 and wakeboarding when I was 40. I finally settled on music, where I can stay warm and I never face plant.
      • I didn’t start writing songs until about 10 years ago.
      • I would take a really good hot dog over a steak any day, and I don’t care what’s in it.
      • After 8 collective years in college, I finally graduated with my music degree in 2009.
      • We have 5 children -- 3 in medical school and 2 in college. So much for saving for retirement!
      • I watched them play in about 1500 baseball games and 500 basketball games over the years, and I loved every minute of it.
      • One of my favorite memories ever is riding double on a scooter in the Swiss Alps with my only daughter.
      • When I was 12, Happy Days was the edgiest show on TV. And my parents wouldn’t let me watch it.
      • My kids are my best friends.
      • I credit insomnia for every decent project I’ve ever done.
      • Having too many choices makes me crazy (8-page menus, 700 TV channels, WalMart....)
      • I have a deep and abiding faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ, which gives me direction, purpose and peace.
      • The best thing I’ve ever done is marry John.

In my spare time, I teach piano lessons and frequently give presentations about unplugging the Christmas machine and making more room for the Savior in our lives. If you would like to schedule a presentation for your group (it's free and I don't bring anything to sell), you may email me at shawna(at)shawnaedwardsmusic(dot)com.
