Who We Are.
The Shelby Center was formed in honor of our sweet daughter, niece, sister, fiance, and friend, Shelby Raye Sloan Whitten. Shelby passed away suddenly early in 2018 of a brain hemorrhage. She was 22 years old, Seth's twin, big sister to Jackson and Levi, engaged to a wonderful man, and just weeks away from graduating from Sam Houston State University. She was full of life and that life was fueled by a passion for Jesus Christ and for people. Shelby loved everyone and never met a stranger. Above all, she loved God, wanted to serve Him, and wanted others to know Him. If there is anything that could be learned from Shelby's life, it is that one person CAN make a difference.
In the months since her passing, many of her friends and family have entered a relationship with Jesus and we want to continue her legacy of spreading the love of Jesus and helping people really know Him. Really knowing Jesus brings freedom and peace in a world of chaos and hopelessness! We have expanded our efforts to grief support and will soon have active support groups in the Tomball area. I hope you will join us in this effort.
