Who is Shanicka?
Shanicka Vail House is the wife of Virginia native, and worship artist, Chris House, the mother of Raegan Leigh, Rhian Elise, and rainbow baby, Raine Christiann Ruth! She is the only daughter to Samuel and Patricia Walthour. Raised in the small town of Screven, Georgia servant-hood was instilled in her from a very young age. As an encourager, Shanicka’s Grandmother, Ruth, taught her to not be ashamed of serving, because even in serving others, you’re really serving God.
She is a 2005 graduate of Valdosta State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology with a minor in African American Studies
Shanicka has a heart for women and has been given, what she likes to call, "the ministry of transparency". She takes great joy in sharing her "TransParent (MOM)ents"...the place where REAL meets REVELATION. Through MTM she creates apparel, connects with, does events for, encourages, and shares her life with other MOMs, MOMs-to-be (currently carrying), and EXPECTING MOMs (believing by faith). Most recently she pulled together a group of women for the first Prayer, Coffee, and a (MOM)ent small group where, together, they dig deeper into the importance of Bible Study.
Humbled to serve and assist in many different capacities, Shanicka still holds fast to her Grandmother’s teaching, and is extremely grateful for God’s continued faithfulness to honor her gift of service. After the passing of her Grandmother in 2021 Shanicka launched a non-profit honoring her legacy, The R.U.T.H. Foundation for Women, seeking to aide MOMs in need with a focus on Single MOMs.
