My name is Shina [Shee-nah] Marie. Hence where I get the name Shi Marie. Close friends and family have always called me “Shi” for short.
I’m a Lifestyle Blogger and Christian.
This is a place where I share my journey of faith and how I live a life that I love with God.
Shi Walks With God is a lifestyle blog dedicated to living life on purpose with purpose! Every week I share what God places on my heart to inspire and equip you in creating a life filled with passion and purpose.
Life shouldn’t just be something that happens to you by accident. We’re not just pieces of drift wood getting tossed about in a sea of uncontrollable waves.
Living on purpose is about actively choosing the kind of life you want to live, being intentional about what you’re doing and pursuing what you were created for.
My hearts desire is to empower others to pursue their passions and live intentionally.
When your God given purpose is put into action you can create a life that you never even imagined or dreamed of.
We have the power and authority given to us through Christ to take control over our life and make manifest the unique calling that God desires for each one of us.
We were created by the one who first Loved Us, therefore we should be living a life we love.
So start now! And make your God given purpose into a Reality! Be Intentional! Live on Purpose!
Taking That Step
Maybe you’re new to all this “God” stuff and need help navigating through your first steps in faith. Or maybe you have been walking with God for many years now.
No matter where you are in your relationship with God, this is a great place for you to grow.
Why I write
When I really think about it, Blogging is a perfect fit for me. I usually prefer to talk one on one with people or in small intimate groups. I find that it leads to deeper conversations and I love that. Also, I’ve never been the kind of person who likes telling the same story over and over and over again. I kind of start to get sick of myself. So writing became a big resource for me to organize my thoughts and stories. Blogging provides me with a place to do that and share with others at the same time.
Through The Years
My Walk With God for the last ten and a half years has been anything but ordinary. Life as a follower of Christ has had many ups and downs and in betweens. Although it hasn’t always been an easy road, I wouldn’t have changed it for anything. The day that God changed my heart was the best day of my life.
God has truly blessed me in so many ways. I’ve served as a worship leader, a youth leader and in various other leadership roles over the years. I’ve been able to help build houses in New Orleans for Katrina victims with Habitat For Humanity. God has also afforded me opportunities to serve on missions trips in countries such as Haiti, Hungary, Germany, Slovenia, The Czech Republic, Austria and Belize, doing things I could have never imagined.
