About the Book

When mind and body come crashing to a halt after years in missions, can the passion be reignited? Shannon tells her story, amid calamity and risk, and faces the demands that come with dreaming big and the logistics of putting new missions paradigms into practice. This is a journey from passion to burnout, and the lingering hope of recovery that glows like burning embers amid the ashes.

About the Author

After finishing an M.Div., Shannon went on to host cross-cultural educational experiences for young adults in various global communities. She spent extensive time in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Currently, she resides just outside of Toronto, Canada, where she volunteers as a community youth leader and writes. She is in the final throes of completing an M.Ed., but still finds time to jump on the couch with her nieces.
