Shadia’s Story

In addition to receiving an MA in Biblical and Theological studies from Western Seminary, Shadia holds an MA in Criminal Justice and BA in Psychology from the State University of New York.

In 2010, Shadia published her first book, Nameless No More, and in 2014 released Worthy of Love: A Journey of Hope and Healing After Abortion, a story-driven Bible study for post-abortion healing recommended by Chip and Theresa Ingram.

Her current work in progress is a series of Bible studies called Behind the Seen: Exploring the Bible’s Unsung Heroes. The first study is based on the story of Hagar, which will be published by Leafwood/ACU Press in the Fall of 2017.  In addition to writing books, Shadia’a articles have been published by the Bible Advocate magazine, Christian Voice Magazine, The Secret Place, The Upper Room, and on the Christian Broadcast Network. Shadia is often invited to speak at churches, women’s events, fundraisers and on the radio. She currently lives in northern California where she serves on the Board of Directors for RealOptions Pregnancy Centers.

“Whether through writing or speaking, I love sharing the treasures found in God’s Word for it is there where we discover that God’s story beats in every heart.” – Shadia
