My name is Shirley Hershey Showalter. I’m the author of a memoir about growing up Mennonite called Blush: A Mennonite Girl Meets a Glittering World. I was also a college president, foundation executive, and professor. You can read more on my about page.
I am leading a quieter, more contemplative, life now. I enjoy reading, writing, playing, and speaking. At this website, I’m reflecting on two subjects:
- Magical Memoir Moments: those little epiphanies when we remember on purpose.
- Encore vocation: when we get to decide what our purpose is beyond our job or career.
