Shirley is a lover of life and has determined she would have to live many spans over to do everything she wants to do. Photography is one way she tries to hang onto the moment, to make some sense of the world, to capture fleeting emotions and savvy understandings. She is a daughter of God, who since childhood, has been taught His ways. Her father was a minister, as is her husband, Jerry, two of their sons, Stephen and Andrew, and their grandson, Joel. God and His church are the center of her life.
Jerry and Shirley have four children, all married now, twelve grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. The Buxtons live in Crestline, CA. a small town that sets 5000 feet high in the San Bernardino Mountains. Although they maintain their Crestline home, since February of 2007, they have lived in Lake Havasu City, AZ. where they are pioneering a new church work.
In recent years, Shirley has published three books. The first, A Thousand Pieces, ready to go into its fourth printing, is the story of Jerry’s horrendous accident in 1994 when he was struck by a drunk driver. He was in the hospital five months, and his remarkable recovery is attributed both to excellent medical care, and to the miraculous touch of God. Her second book is entitled, Road Tales. In July of 2006, she released her newest book Link to Excellence.
Shirley also is a frequent speaker, both at women’s conferences and other meetings, and with Jerry, in marriage seminars.
Thanks for being about.
