Along with her husband, Jim, Shelley Hendry (1962-2021) began a living history ministry that grew to reach audiences throughout the nation. From Wisconsin to Virginia, their influence and ministry of encouragement became especially appreciated by homeschoolers and history lovers. Shelley received her Masters from Pensacola Christian College and she completed studies in speech and drama at Bob Jones University. As a mother of six children, her heart's desire was to inspire others to stay the course, depending upon the Lord to show Himself strong in their lives today, just as He did in the days of Corrie ten Boom and Fanny Crosby.
