- 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.
