Welcome. Click around and also find me on Facebook,  Twitter and Instagram. CV at bottom of page. 

Standing still and watching injustice, discrimination, poverty and other social inequities continue without taking action has never been an option for me. I strive to use my instinctive abilities to develop organizations, raise funds, instruct, and develop strategies that impact change in our society in order to give a voice to the voiceless. As a founder, director, speaker, teacher and activist with a passion for helping others, I utilize my keen sense for driving the success of non-profit and educational endeavors to influence leaders across the globe.

I am an activist, lecturer, and the author of two books, REFUSE TO DO NOTHING; Finding Your Power to Abolish Modern Day Slavery and GLOBAL SOCCER MOM: Changing the World Is Easier Than You Think.  

Bono, the lead singer of Irish rock band U2 and founder of ONE, endorsed my first book saying, “Politicians watch out. Shayne Moore is an unstoppable force.”

I recorded my first full-length studio album in 2013 also entitled Refuse To Do Nothing — a collection of 12 original songs and available at iTunes and Amazon.

I co-founded Redbud Writers Guild and I served as Founding Director and President. I am currently on the Governing Board of Directors and serve as Treasurer. Redbud is a group of Christian women writers and authors expanding the feminine voice in churches, communities and culture. With 100 members, Redbud envisions a vibrant and diverse movement of women who—in community—create and influence culture and faith. 

As a strong supporter of the new abolitionist movement to end modern-day slavery, I co-founded the West Chicagoland Anti-Trafficking Coalition. I have been featured and has contributed to the Huffington Post, Christianity Today’s blog her.meneutics, SheLoves Magazine, the blog at the ONE Campaign, MORE magazine, and ParentLife blog among others.

With an M.A. in Theology, I am a guest lecturer and radio guest. I have presented at the Justice Conference, International Justice Mission’s Freedom Summit, The Chicago Council on Global Affairs, The Bay Area Anti Human Trafficking Freedom Summit, Festival of Faith and Writing, churches, and fundraising events throughout the United States.

I was raised in Wheaton, IL. After graduating from Wheaton College I taught school in the inner city of Los Angeles. Upon returning home, I completed a Master of Arts in Theology at Wheaton College Graduate School all while starting a family and training as an ER Chaplain. I continue to live in my hometown with my husband and three children.
