Hi there! My name is Shanna Lehr. Thanks for stopping by “Flourish”. I hope you’ll find encouragement through my blog. I started “Flourish” because of a passion in my heart to share real life struggles and triumphs through the guidance of scripture. I’m a Mom of four and this journey of Motherhood has been the most transformational and humbling experience of my life! I write often about how Jesus meets me daily as I walk through the joys, pains, highs, lows, mountain tops and valleys of life as a pastor’s wife, home-schooling mother, and a woman who dearly loves God. I also enjoy running, so occasionally you’ll see that pop up on my blog.
My teammate in life is @PastorScottLehr. Our marriage of 15 years has been an incredible blessing and very full. We started our church 9 years ago in Raleigh, North Carolina and have seen God do the impossible. We dearly love the people of Southbridge Fellowship, who link arms with us as we connect people to Jesus for life change.
I’m committed to writing, praying that you fall more in love with Jesus or perhaps find him for the very first time. Years ago, while pregnant with my first child, I was diagnosed HIV+. While life to that point had been fairly uneventful, this rocked my world and caused me to seek the Lord in my darkest hours. I found that even at the “bottom of the barrel”, He was still there loving, comforting, and ever-present. That experience has changed the course of my life and given me a laser-focus for Him. If you’d like to read more of that story click here.
I hope you’ll stop by often and join the conversation by leaving a comment. I do love to hear from you!
May we not just survive this life, but thrive and flourish in all we’ve been called to do!
