Most of us have fears and failures of one kind or another. Some are small and short-lived; others have bothered us for years. Either way, we don’t have to let those discourage us or steal our joy. Instead, if we have hope to build on, we can repurpose our fears and failures; we can turn them into new and better ways of dealing with life. That’s what Repurposed Life Ministries is all about—helping you find hope to build on!

I’m Shannon Warden, owner of Repurposed Life Ministries. I use my writing and public speaking to help women, couples, and parents improve their relationships, self-esteem, and outlook on life.

My professional counseling background heavily influences my writing and speaking, but I am even more influenced by my relationship with Jesus Christ. For me, no one else in all of history has done more good. That’s why I want to do what He said—love the Lord my God with all my heart, soul, and mind; and, love my neighbor as myself (Matthew 22:36-40). Repurposed Life Ministries is one way I can show my love for God and you.

For encouragement and helpful ideas for repurposing your life, sign up for my blog, Hope to Build On. And, follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

I have known Shannon Warden for many years. Early in her career, we worked on the same counseling staff. She left our staff to pursue graduate studies. After receiving her Ph.D. I was thrilled to see her begin her teaching career at Gardner-Webb University. She is now teaching at Wake Forest University. Last year, she joined me in writing a book entitled: Things I Wish I’d Known Before We became Parents. Knowing that she and Stephen have three young children, I was excited to have her join me in this project. She is an excellent researcher, writer, and speaker. I can highly recommend her as a speaker to any group looking for practical insights on relationships.
