Hi, I’m Shelby Lynn and super excited to be a part of the Star 88.3 team! I’m a small-town girl at heart, grew up in Leo, Indiana and went off to Grace College for a few years before moving back to Fort Wayne, where I finished college at IPFW and married my high school sweetheart. We’ve been married almost six years now and I have loved being a wife, turning our house into a home, and cooking for my man! We welcomed our first little one in October of 2012. Her name is Sarah Lynn Mercy and has been God's precious gift to us.
Before STAR, I had some incredible experiences working at the American Red Cross. As a spokesperson I got to do radio, TV and newspaper interviews, meet the Governor and even work with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition TV show to put on a huge blood drive at one of their local builds! I left a little bit of my heart with the Red Cross, and would encourage everyone to give blood, or volunteer, you won’t regret it!
Whenever Nicole Nordeman or Matt Maher comes on I turn up the volume, their authenticity and vulnerability speaks to me every time. Nothing helps me relax more than a good book and warm drink, especially chai. Even though I’m not a huge fan of reality TV, I love fashion and always set my DVR to record “Project Runway”.
My favorite thing about working at STAR is the opportunity to speak truth each time I'm on the air, or meeting with you at events. I love that God has given me the opportunity to serve Him with the life story he has given me to tell. I keep up a personal blog, where you can read about my baby girl, lessons from life and more, check it out here.
When I’m not at STAR, I can’t get enough of my family and friends. The relationships that I have built over the years mean so much to me, and I love that God has put some awesome people in my life. And, because of that I look forward to meeting you and sharing the incredible ways that God has saved me, loved me and carried me through the tough stuff! I’d love to hear from you, your story and what God has done in your life, send me a line: firstname.lastname@example.org
