Lighten Up #46: Shauna Shanks

Today I’m talking with Shauna Shanks about receiving the unexpected honor of “Ohio’s Exemplary Citizen.” No seriously, that’s a thing, and don’t we all wish we could get random awards in the mail from our states? We also talk about her brief obsession with making fancy pop tarts, building a house out of shipping containers, and of course her book, A Fierce Love, about her husband’s infidelity and how her marriage healed from the brink of divorce one step at a time. Whether you’re married or not, divorced or not, her personal story is inspiring and beautiful and you’re gonna love getting to know her a little bit here on the show, so listen in and lighten up.

How to Leave a Review:

If you enjoyed this conversation, would you jump over to iTunes and leave a quick review? This will help other people find the show. Now, I have to admit that I’m so technically challenged that I struggled to even figure out how to leave a review. You are smarter than I am, but just in case you, too, aren’t sure how to do that, here’s a quick tutorial on Leaving a Review on iTunes:

  1. Go to the Lighten Up iTunes preview page.
  2. Click “view in iTunes,” which will launch iTunes.
  3. Click the “ratings and reviews” tab. (You can also click the “subscribe” button while you’re there, heh heh.)
  4. Select a star rating, then write a quick review.
  5. It might take awhile for it to show up in iTunes, but please give yourself a hug from me.
