In her memoir ‘Mountains Into Roads,’ Shawna Kaszer brings readers along in her ’88 Bronco for the road trip adventure of a lifetime. Nearly ten years after losing her mom, Shawna finds herself stuck, the grief from loss still affecting every area of her life. Rather than become a slave to what was, she and her husband pack up their NYC apartment and take off on a cross country adventure to face it all, changing what could be. Memories from the past begin to collide with the present out on the open road, creating powerful opportunities for encounters with God that bring radical freedom, healing, and renewed hope.

She has been both in front of and behind the camera, studying acting and film at USC along with the Stella Adler Studio in Los Angeles. Shawna has produced and directed film and theater in both LA and NYC, most recently co-producing the Danny Clinch and Shannon Hoon documentary ‘All I Can Say’ which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Shawna has served in various roles of ministry leadership for over a decade, from prophetic equipping to launching house churches. In 2020, she published ‘Mountains Into Roads,’ her story of a wild road-trip adventure across the country and across the heart. Shawna is a prophetic voice who tends to carry the message of the next season, often writing within the tensions that hold us in constant balance between Heaven and Earth; living fully free and fully surrendered. Having enjoyed living on both coasts for many years, she now calls the South home, where she lives with her husband and young children.
