Publisher's Summary

Shannan Martin had the best life she could imagine. She lived with her husband and three adorable kids in a cute little farmhouse on six rambling acres and had enough money, plenty of friends, a great church, and a safe, happy existence. Then the bottom dropped out when they lost their jobs and God called them to something radically different. Their world shifted to a small house on the other side of the urban tracks, an income on life support, failing local schools, and the county jail (where her husband is chaplain). And yet their plunge from "nice, safe, and happy" was the best thing that ever happened to them.

Falling Free chronicles the Martin family's pilgrimage from the faulty, me-centric wisdom of this world to the topsy-turvy life of God's more being found in the less, challenging listeners to rethink their own assumptions about faith and the good life. Anyone who yearns for something beyond status quo, middle-class Christianity but hesitates out of insecurity or safety concerns will find encouragement, food for thought, and practical guidance in this sweetly subversive book.

Eye-opening read!!

I felt like Shannan was sharing my life experiences. Although. It the same life-altering experience, the missed opportunities are universal. No more excuses...I can do all things through Christ 👍🏼

Editing needs improvement

I enjoyed the story, and for the most part as engaged. However, the audible editing needs work. There were gigantic pauses between chapters but next to. I pause between sections. Section titles seemed read as part of run-in sentences. It doesn't give the listener time to transition. Otherwise a good read.
