Ann Shorb, Ph.D.
Dr. Ann Shorb has been involved in various Christian ministries throughout her entire adult life. She is a teacher and speaker, a free-lance writer, and a Christian counselor whose insight and understanding help her relate easily to others.
Dr. Ann and her family served as missionaries in Africa, Europe, and the United States. After moving to Hanover, Pennsylvania in 1984, Ann completed her Ph.D. and later began her career in professional Christian counseling. In 1997, she founded Christian Counseling and Educational Services. As a counselor and director of this growing organization, her days are full, but never boring!
In addition to her counseling work, Ann enjoys speaking at retreats, seminars, and other gatherings. Over the years, she has performed more than 1,000 creative programs for churches and community groups using her skills in puppetry and ventriloquism to teach and entertain people of all ages.
As a free-lance writer, Ann has published more than 175 short pieces and one book on puppetry. For more than two decades she was a regular contributor to Evangelizing Today's Child magazine (now called Teach Kids!). Her work has been translated into numerous foreign languages and is used in various countries around the world. Currently she writes A Light for My Path, a free devotional that is sent out by email each week.
In 1999, Ann and a group of friends formed Daystar Production Company as a part of York Community Access Television in York, Pennsylvania. For several years she was the producer and host of Women on the Move, a program dealing with issues women face in today's world.
In the Understanding and Teaching . . . video series, Dr. Ann shares her many years of experience in working with children. These programs are designed to give insight and understanding of various problems to schoolteachers, church workers, parents and others that are involved with children.
Ann holds a B.S. and an M.A.T. in Elementary Education, and a Ph.D. in Biblical Counseling.
Philippians 1:20-21 are Ann's life verses:
According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
