Shannan Martin, author of The Ministry of Ordinary Places: Waking Up to God’s Goodness Around You and Falling Free: Rescued from the Life I Always Wanted, is a speaker and writer who found her voice in the country and her story in the city. Shannan, her jail-chaplain husband, Cory, and their kids, live as grateful neighbors in Goshen, Indiana.
"I'm a wife, a mom, and a neighbor. I'm obsessed with learning to live in the small, weird way of Jesus and I think living deeply rooted wherever we are, in intentional relationships with the people closest to us (especially those on the margins) is our best way forward. I'm also a not-too-spicy salsa aficionado and eat it as often as good fortune allows."
