Episode 15: Shannan Martin

Spoken Freely Podcast

Have we got a treat for you! Today's show is all about Shannan Martin, author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places and Fallen Free. Shannan is our special guest at our upcoming event in July, but we thought we'd all get to know her a little better on this episode of the Spoken Freely podcast.   We dish about dessert, coffee vs. tea, her love of a good book and other favorite things about being a homebody. She shares about her path from the country to the city and emphasizes the importance of physical proximity to people so we can love like a neighbor. We love how she shares about having open hands so that God can drop things into our hands and take things out.   Shannan reveals that we learn what's important about the culture of our place when we slow down and pay attention to our surroundings. We promise you will take away so many good nuggets from our conversation today, you might even listen a second time!   Interested in attending the event with Shannan Martin in Indianapolis? You can find out more information and purchase your tickets at www.spokenfreely.org/event! We hope to see you there!
