1KHO 93: Somebody Just Has to Go First | Shannan Martin, Start With Hello |

The 1000 Hours Outside Podcast

Shannan Martin is one of my favorite storytellers and she includes a never-told-before story in this episode. I cried while we were recording together and then again while editing (a first for me.) Shannan does such a beautiful job breaking down the essence of building community and reminding us of why it is oh, so important. Feelings of loneliness are becoming more and more common but we can start with the small seeds of a smile, wave, and short conversations. We talk about so much in this one and you will learn a tremendous amount through Shannan's touching stories. Don't miss this one!

HH#527 Start With Hello with Shannan Martin

The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey

If you have been listening to my show for a while now, you may be familiar with today’s guest. Shannan Martin joined me back in 2015 on Episode #45 to share about her family’s life and mission. Today we talk about a number of things, including the practice of waking up and how Shannan defines ‘neighbor,’ plus systematic injustice and the black squares that everyone posted on social media in 2020. Shannan is the author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places, Falling Tree, and her newest book, Start With Hello, which releases October 11. Connecting with neighbors in intentional ways is something that screams “Shannan and Corey Martin.” Shannan says Start With Hello started in her family’s neighborhood as she found her heart gravitating toward connecting with the people around her, especially people who don’t look like her. Shannan says her calling is to live as a neighbor, which she defines as anyone who her life intersects with. Everything she knows about living as a neighbor she said she learned from her neighbors. We can love our neighbors like Shannan by being intentional, starting with hello.
