Popular blogger Shannan Martin offers Christians who are longing for a more meaningful life a simple starting point: learn what it is to love and be loved right where God has placed you.
For Christ-followers living in an increasingly complicated world, it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to live a life of intention and meaning. Where do we even begin?
Shannan Martin offers a surprisingly simple answer: uncover the hidden corners of our cities and neighborhoods and invest deeply in the lives of people around us. She walks us through her own discoveries about the vital importance of paying attention, as well as the hard but rewarding truth about showing up and committing for the long haul, despite the inevitable encounters with brokenness and uncertainty. With transparency, humor, heart-tugging storytelling, and more than a little personal confession, Martin shows us that no matter where we live or how much we have, as we learn what it is to be with people as Jesus was, we'll find our very lives. The details will look quiet and ordinary, and the call will both exhaust and exhilarate us. But it will be the most worth-it adventure we will ever take.
- Great book, awful reader.
Love love love Shannan Martin and this book, but the audio version is awful. The reader needs to match the author's voice. Not her actual voice, but just like in acting, the actor has to do research to play a specific role, your reader should research the author and hear her "voice" and know her passion before reading her book. It was really hard to listen to this soft spoken, non-emphatic reader. Shannan should have been allowed to read this book. Please pass along to her publishers. Thank you.
