About Shelby Hughes

I grew up in a small cabin built by none other than my parents themselves. They had help here and there, but Dad drew up the blueprint, we moved hundreds of miles away, and they got to work. The home has yet to match the blueprint, but that's no surprise considering that a work of art is never fully finished—just as our lives will never fully finish.

S2E10: Thankful In All with guest Karen Gauvreau

Karen and I packed a lot into 20 minutes. Mainly, we spoke to having hearts of gratitude in all things, including the difficult things. While it's only October, Thanksgiving will be here before we know it. And fun fact: Canadians celebrate Thanksgiving in October, so I suppose this comes right on time for them. In the last four episodes of Season 2, we'll prepare for Thanksgiving by first preparing our hearts. We hope you'll join us!
