A native of Franklin, Tennessee, Shannon Williams Kaprive has lived her life with enthusiasm while enjoying a career in the corporate arena for 41 years working in public relations, employee training and development, human resources, and most recently as a personal coach.

"Life’s events taught me at a very early age the importance of savoring each day, after a tragic family automobile accident at age four, and the loss of my mother at age six.”

“As a wife, mother, grandmother, and professional, it was so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. God’s gentle whispers to my soul beckoned me to a new calling and a richer way of life.”

Leaving her resume behind, Shannon lives with her husband, Lon, on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. She enjoys beach life, writing, journaling, coaching, and encouraging others to live their lives to the fullest with heart and soul, as God leads the way.


Alexandra H. Sharma has a Fine Arts degree and has also studied at the Sorbonne, Paris, Oxford University, England, the University of Toronto, the Ontario College of Art and Design, and Savannah College of Art and Design.

She has spent over twenty years painting and sculpting while teaching art at college and university in Toronto and more recently in Beaufort and Hilton Head Island, SC.  Her artwork is in numerous private collections and in the City of Toronto's corporate collection, and the University of South Carolina-Beaufort's collection. Her paintings, print works, and sculpture have been shown at a number of art association exhibitions in Canada and the United States.

Her sculpture has won several awards including a "first in class" at the International Woodcarver's Show, Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto, Canada.
