About Me

Amanda, Larry, Braxton, Dawson (On Easter 2019)

Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Larry Shankle…a husband, dad, pastor, and author.

For our entire lives, my family has called the river valley area of Arkansas home. We pastor a church in a small town called Natural Dam, where we do our best to help our community and share the love of Jesus.

Visit our church website: GrandviewChurch 

For fun, my wife Amanda and our two boys, Braxton and Dawson, love to hike, fish, and be outdoors in general. 

In my spare time, I write and illustrate children’s books for fun! Find some of my work on my Amazon.com Author Page.
