This week’s episode is super special as Fallon gets the pleasure of sitting down to chat with long-time Mocha Club member and author, Shannan Martin. Shannan just launched her newest book “The Ministry of Ordinary Places” and encourages readers to be present and intentional in ordinary ways to better love the people around you. She talks about how we can all live a life of meaning by first starting with the people who live next door. She’s certainly changing the conversation about how to love people well in simple ways that turn extraordinary. This conversation will inspire you to want to put down the phone and look up to see the neighbors across from you. You can get Shannan’s new book on Amazon : https://www.amazon.com/Ministry-Ordinary-Places-Waking-Goodness/dp/0718077482
