Here’s what’s new…

We’ve received lots of positive feedback on our new book: The DIY Guide to Building a Family That Lasts.  My co-author is Dr. Gary Chapman (NY Times best selling author of  The 5 Love Languages).

More fun stuff…

I frequently have the privilege of being on broadcasts such as this one with my friend John Finch (click here to watch). I post all of my interviews on social media @drshannonwarden, so check those out for relationship and home life encouragement and tips.

Interested in knowing what your “relational IQ” is? Take the “RQ Assessment“…a brief quiz I recently wrote in support of Dr. Dharius Daniels‘ new book, Relational Intelligence.

Looking for a fun, uplifting video series to watch?! Check out my YouTube channel, where you’ll find my first-ever series, Family All the Way with Dr. Shannon Warden. I show you the start-to-finish process of us building our “forever house.” In each episode, I also talk about how building a home and building a healthy home life are similar.

I’ll be back to speaking for groups in fall 2020. I hope you and your family are doing ok. COVID-19 has forever changed the world, but hopefully on the other side, we’ll be better prepared in the future to protect ourselves from illness like this one. My heart goes out to all the people who’ve lost loved ones during this crisis.

Thanks again for visiting!

With love,

I have enjoyed working with Shannon Warden on two exciting books: Things I Wish I’d Known Before We Became Parents, and The DIY Guide to Building A Family That Lasts.  Her commitment to her husband and family along with her commitment to Christ and the church, and her long-time work as a professional counselor and counselor educator make her an excellent resource for anyone looking for a speaker on marriage and family relationships.  I highly recommend her.
