Shannon Evans is creating spiritual writing on an integrated life of faith

Hi! I'm Shannon. I'm a writer, speaker, and author of Embracing Weakness: The Unlikely Secret to Changing the World. A contemplative at heart, in my daily life I am continually seeking the convergence of creative spirituality and social justice within the "monastic cell" that is young motherhood. The ultimate goal of my writing is to expand our experience of God until it births more compassion for others and for ourselves — believing that as our perception of the Divine becomes more good and true, so will our society.

I sincerely desire this investment to be worthwhile to you as a patron. In addition to supporting my public projects (see below), Patreon supporters will receive original content from me each month. Beginning in June 2019 and continuing for eight months, the theme will be exploring our own areas of wounding in light of the wounds of Jesus during his years on earth—and by doing so, becoming more whole ourselves. My hope is that it may be an opportunity for healing, growth, and fresh insight for all of us. I look forward to journeying with you!

Current or upcoming projects you're supporting:

  • Promotion of my new book, Embracing Weakness - These days I'm spending a lot of time doing online marketing, interviews, etc that pay little-to-nothing in order to promote this book and its message of Jesus' gospel of weakness (i.e. - incarnation). In a time when Christianity has come to be equated with power, comfort, and ease, I believe we need an emphasis on the humanity of Jesus to bring us back to the true model that he gave us. Thank you for supporting this important work!
  • Creation of an e-book on integrating body and spirit - Due to the outpouring of response each time I address this subject on Instagram, I decided to put together a short e-book exploring the connection between our physical bodies and our spiritual lives. I hope to make it available in the fall, and your financial support will help me hire someone to design it (since I am technologically hopeless!).
  • Original weekly content on InstagramFacebook, and my blog - I don't take my social media platform lightly, and I seek to be intentional about putting valuable content out each week (less on the blog). This writing is free and I love offering it, but being supported by patrons would make the time and mental energy more sustainable.
  • A secret project for children! - more details to come ;)
