Upon returning home, Shayne completed a Master of Arts at Wheaton College Graduate School while starting a family and training as an ER Chaplain. Moore continues to live in her hometown with her husband and three children.

Shayne's music is inspired by her faith, her work in social justices causes such as the HIV/AIDS pandemic is sub-Saharan Africa and the atrocity of modern-day slavery. Believing we all can make a difference in the world, no matter who we are or where we are, Moore writes song to inspire change.

Moore knows the challenge of managing a home and the desire to make a difference for those who are suffering. As a full-time mother of three, she has journeyed from insular suburban world into the arena of global advocacy, writing books and making music. Using the power of story, Moore's music inspires people everywhere to start right where they are and make a difference.
