Shannon Rivers Coibion

Shannon is the daughter of Francine Rivers and a full-time homemaker and homeschooling mom. She lives in northern California with her husband and two children.

Shannon, who wrote the "Growing Time" sections of Bible Stories for Growing Kids, grew up in a family that read the Bible together. She was influenced not only by the after-dinner Bible readings but also by the knowledge that her parents got up early each morning to read Scripture and pray. Now Shannon lets her children know that she reads her Bible before arising each morning. And she makes certain that their schooling includes a daily reading from a one-year kids' Bible, followed by a discussion time.
