Shannon Stewart has a passion for encouraging others in their walk with Jesus Christ. She was an America’s Next Top Model runner up who gained praise in the Christian community for refusing to lower her standards and pose nude/semi-nude for a photo shoot. While this refusal eventually led to her elimination, it strengthened her resolve. This experience helped ignite her voice to inspire others to maintain the LORD’s standards, regardless of the cost, not yielding to the world’s allurements. She also was first runner up in the Miss Ohio USA pageant where she had an opportunity to shine for HIM. Shannon and her husband Mathew currently live in Raleigh, NC, where she authors a blog with the goal of promoting Christ’s glory through faith based messages of truth, hope and love.
