My Bio Sheet

Shannon Lee Cochran


FORGIVEN by His death, once and done.
REDEEMED by the Slaughtered Son.
RESTORED to serve, my ministry has begun.

I am NOT a historian, a Bible scholar, or a theologian. I AM a child of God and student of His word. I AM a prized wife, a praised mother, and loved by my family and friends. I AM a willing servant of Christ Jesus, my Lord.

8Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, "Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?"

And I said, "Here am I. Send me!” Isaiah 6:8

MY PASSION & PURPOSE: My passion to KNOW Christ and be transformed births from the transformation that I KNOW He fashioned inside of me. His Divine work in my heart, like a chemical change, cannot be reversed. I am a NEW CREATION in Christ and a “Work in P R O G R E S S (WIP).” Thee M.D. (Master Designer) paints on the canvas of my life. Using my God-given gifts for His glory, I write to you, dear friends, so you will see Him face-to-face and KNOW the glory of His G.R.A.C.E. (God’s Riches at Christ’s Expense)

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and

MY INSPIRATION: One evening I shared my P31 limitations with my husband. He encouraged me to pray. “Lord, make me marketable,” I whispered…Two weeks later I planned a 5K and Silent Auction to benefit a homeschool program I directed. Now, 12 years of marriage, 7 years of waiting for God’s direction, 6 years of homeschooling, going on 5 children, 4.5 years as the Administrator of a homeschool organization, 3 miscarriages, 2 hands that type, and one, BIG serving of Humble Pie later…

I write for Him.

MY AUTHORITY: The only thing I have the authority to write about is my own changed life. No one can rob me of God’s riches, for these rewards redeem in eternity. People may discredit me, but the Holy Spirit of God that seals my heart testifies for me. My transformed life evidences God’s power at work in me.

“Awesome to see God using you and Glorifying Himself and drawing people to a greater understanding of Him through your gift. Thats what they are for!” K. W. Hillegeist.

“Dear Shannon, You are truly a Susanna Wesley – teaching your children, training them up in the way they should go, and doing so with such grace and joy. I am thankful the Lord has placed you in my life as a godly role model! When I think things are difficult, & I have a poor attitude, I remember your loving spirit! I know you will be a wonderful mother to your daughter. What a heavy responsibility in our culture – one that distorts the thinking of women – to train her to follow God’s truth, but you will be a blessing to many of us as we watch you do so. And, of course, your book, I’m sure, has helped prepare you for the job! (Can’t wait to read it!) My vote is a dedication to Rachel!” Love you, Sister in Christ, L. Collins

”I love to read your blogs. They are so encouraging! Thank you for using the talent that God has blessed you with to bless others.” C. W. Winterton

“You inspire me at a time when I am in a valley- thank you! I remember being in a place like you are in… very inspired and full of Jesus, now I feel like Joseph-wrongly accused, thrown in prison and there I sit....Praise God He is the Rock on which I stand or I would be without hope…but then I read your blog and there is sister...keep being Lord have no idea who you are touching or how! Continue to pour your love out to all around you!” Love in Christ, J. Jordan
