ShyAnn, “God’s Girl,” was a beautiful joy to her family. She loved animals and was gifted with an infectious smile and an energetic, humorous personality. She excelled at school in her younger and teen years and was VP of her junior class. She sang, loved music and dance; and enjoyed theater, rodeo, and clogging. ShyAnn was an accomplished artist, singer/song writer where her depth of heart-beauty is revealed in her music (see R hand video below). A producer in Nashville said, “ShyAnn has such a cool sounding voice; in fact, she is so good she doesn’t even know how good she is.” ~R. Chisum Nashville. However, while in college during her mid-twenties, ShyAnn began to decline because of what we believe she experienced during her crucial developmental years: being raised by a single mom and hurt by trusted care-givers. We know she possessed unwavering faith, but it appeared that ShyAnn did not understand what was causing her struggles, and kept this battle hidden from her family. Further, as a baby Christian, she did not have a strong biblical foundation and wisdom while trying to accomplish her dreams in a challenging, young adult generation. When she was on her own, chasing her dreams in Florida 2000 miles away from family, she began to decline. According to her writings and behavior, around 2007 something began to change in her. Although she was raised to love everyone, sadly she did not know how to guard her heart. We believe ShyAnn developed anxiety and in her confusion to survive, she began to self-medicate with alcohol. On December 6, 2015 shortly after moving in with her mom and second dad in Colorado, the Lord saw how tired and worn out she was and took her home. We praise God that in her short life, she touched hundreds of lives by her heart for others and her unwavering faith during the darkest days. ShyAnn never stopped fighting affliction in faith and prayer. In the wake of our daughter’s passing, the Lord revealed a beautiful miracle, and her mom will share more details during training and speaking presentations. ShyAnn not only left behind a heartbroken family, but also her beloved fur baby, Angel, aka Bunzee. This fur baby is an “angel” and helped her mom in her deepest grief, and her mom was there to help Angel in her grief as well. ShyAnn’s Hope is her mother’s labor of love to bring her daughter’s memory into the future with her by helping others in numerous capacities.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable-if anything is excellent or praise worthy-think about such things and the God of peace will be with you.
