Shona is a Personality Mechanic who loves helping others “tune up” their everyday relationships, because when understand ourselves, it is easier to understand others. She became a certified personality trainer in March 2007 and received her lifetime certification in June 2011. How did this phlegmatic personality get where she is today?

Shona developed and taught her own curriculum in many church-based classes. However as a result of studying The Personalities under Florence Littauer, she enjoys sharing this tool with others to enhance their relationships at home, work, church, and play.

She is a CLASSeminars graduate and is on staff with the organization. Her speaking resume includes speaking at ladies’ retreats, teaching at her local community college, and financial institutions. She also presents personalities at local organizations for moms and expectant  mothers.

Shona served as senior editor for Take Root Publications, a Christian womens website and digital magazine, for three years. For two years she had a weekly show  KKIM Christian Talk Radio based in Albuquerque, NM. Despite no longer being a weekly presence on the radio, she still steps in and helps out with live gigs.

She is also co-founder with partner, Shonda Savage-Whitworth, of StepUP Writing and Speaking Services which equips and encourages aspiring Christian writers and speakers.

As Shona’s knowledge has grown over the years, she wants to equip you because life in general is full of challenges. We all need inspiration and tools. Shona’s original intent with this blog/website was to offer practical biblical inspiration. That is still available via her musings contained in Word for Today, however, she adjusted the main content to be about personalities.

Shona lives in northern New Mexico with her husband, two Welsh Terriers, and one very active Parson Russell Terrier. She has two sons in college.
