I realized, today, that I posted an update on this here blog and forgot to properly introduce myself. Ms. Manners would probably call me rude. I’ll say I just felt like we were old friends, and I overlooked it. But, to keep up the ideal of manners, I will take a minute to do this all the right way.
Here is a quick insight into who I am:
My name is Shontell Brewer, and I live in the heart of the city of Reno, Nevada. There are seven of us holed up in a tiny little house: my husband and our five kiddos. By day, I teach elementary school. By night, I write here and here and wrangle my brood of very cool kids. I also am the children’s ministry leader at my church.
As a whole, we are a family about community. Weekends we can be found outside, dipping our toes in the Truckee River, or catching up on our favorite movies. And coffee? Forget about it. Coffee is my love language. After Jesus, it’s what gets me moving each day.
I was seven when God told me I was to be a teacher. I am so grateful for His direction! I am also grateful to partner with a group like Awaken and see the different faces my role as teacher can take! For now, it means spending time with you good people through blogging and hopefully bringing a little nonsense for you to mull over in your day.
