Shelleen Turned Her Faith Into Music During Trying Times
Tuesday 6 December 2016
From US news outlet LancasterOnline:
Shelleen turned her faith into music during trying times
Shelleen Weaver never saw herself as a “pageant girl.”
Growing up in northern Pennsylvania’s Potter County, the singer-songwriter and author lived in a one-room cabin with no electricity or running water, on a 77-acre plot of land. The driveway leading to her family’s home was a mile long.
For fun, she rode horses and played on her high school’s award-winning basketball team.
When her guidance counselor told her she received a letter inviting Weaver to enter a pageant, Weaver laughed. When a second letter came, she took a closer look.
Weaver entered the pageant, and for the first time shared her original poems. She used poetry as an emotional outlet, often writing about the struggles of living with the chronic fatigue syndrome she was diagnosed with at age 16.
