“There have just been so many wonderful things in my life,” Shackelford said.
“I’m proud of my children. Not of who they are, but what they are,” she added. “They have spent their lifetime in service, and that makes me most proud — that they care about others and they want to do things that help others.”
This fall, Sadie will take her messages of faith on the road as she embarks on her first “Live Original” event tour, named after her New York Times best-selling book and lifestyle message that encourages people to stay true to themselves and their values.
The program will be filled with family, friends and music to spread her message that young people can live positively and passionately while remaining in tune with their faith.
