I'm Shannon Upton, a Christian speaker, author, and blogger. I help women clear out their spiritual clutter so they can fully enjoy their families and their Lord.

I'm a dedicated wife and mother of three with a passion for living with intention. My family lives in Central Ohio and we love every season! My husband, Travis, and I are raising our kids to love Jesus and their family.

I'm the author of the Organizing You books, self-help books for Christian women about how to clear out spiritual clutter and live an abundant life in Christ.

I'm a speaker. I love informing and entertaining audiences while sharing my ministry message. I've crafted ten organizing talks and one keynote talk—I'd love to speak to your group! And if your moms' group doesn'

Hi, Aakanshya,

I'm so glad you won the book—I definitely mailed it! I'm surprised it hasn't reached you yet, but it should be there any day.

The giveaway ended on May 1, so I didn't get your address until then. (That means the 30-day mark is May 30th.) I sent the package by "media mail" rate on May 4th or 5th, and it usually takes a little longer. I wouldn't be surprised if you received it today.

If it's approaching May 30th and you haven't received it, please do contact me again! We'll just have to assume it's been lost in the mail and I'll send you another one.

Thank you for contacting me directly about this, and for entering the giveaway in the first place! I hope you love the book.

Blessings,
:) Shannon(less)

But I would love to read a book about how, and why, God worked in my life as he did to bring me to the place where I'm ministering to other women through my books and public speaking.

I know He blessed me through an anxiety disorder, and I was able to write about some of that in my own non-fiction books about faithful home organization. But I'd love to read a narrative from His perspective—to read about how He was loving me, how angels were helping me, and how the Holy Spirit was guiding me—"behind the scenes," deep in my heart.

Wouldn't you love to know how God is working in your life? That's one of the biggest and most wonderful mysteries of all!(less)

I enjoyed this book enough that I'll be checking out other books by Ms. McBeth!

"Falling Together" was a good, solid, entertaining read.

What stood out to me was the author's writing style. She's particularly adept at including metaphors about life circumstances that ring clear and true, but without slowing down the rhythm of the

I'm not usually a fan of memoirs (or non-fiction in general), but I'm quite glad I read "Hillbilly Elegy."

What Vance did right: He gave me a deep look at a culture I know little about, a culture that lives just to the south of me but that doesn't oft

Another solid entry from Sophie Kinsella in the British Girl Pain Humor category—a genera I really enjoy reading.

In a way, these books are a bit "if you've read one, you've read them all." Kinsella's main characters are pretty similar and her writin

I don't think I've laughed out loud at a book quite this much in a long time.

"Wedding Night" is farcical fluff, but very funny and entertaining. I found it a delightful escape. I took off a star for language, and the fact that it was a bit longer tha
