God Within the Lily

Life is a series of moments. Some take these moments for granted. This is not true for Shawnise Chantell. A lifetime lover of adventure and experience, Shawnise loved every moment of life. After giving birth to her third child, Chantell’s life was turned upside down. Her book, God Within the Lily, is the author’s recollection of events that would change her life forever. Her near-death experience was the catalyst for her rebirth. Still loving life, Shawnise is now inspired to share her story with others in hopes that they will not waste any moments.

An incredible near-death experience!
