About the Author

Born in Australia, Shane St. Reynolds found inspiration in influential figures like Louise Hay and Bob Proctor. His life, however, wasn't without hardship. He bravely overcame depression and addiction after facing profound challenges, including the loss of his best friend in Afghanistan and the devastating suicide of his life partner.

A pivotal moment arrived in 2018. While in Peru, Shane witnessed a powerful vision of an angel in the sky above the Cristo Blanco statue. This experience, coupled with a transformative dream where he saw the Holy Spirit descend upon him in St. Paul's Cathedral, solidified his calling to Christianity. Shane's faith journey wasn't without its challenges, particularly reconciling his faith with his sexuality. He has openly addressed these struggles in his writings and has become a vocal advocate for LGBTI+ rights within the Church.

Shane's written work is prolific, encompassing both Christian theology and financial literacy. He further solidified his calling by earning licensure from the Metropolitan Community Church. His thirst for knowledge led him to pursue further education at Oxford, focusing on leadership, followed by additional degrees in theology and business in Australia. Through his powerful storytelling, he lays bare his experiences, a raw and genuine testament that ignites a fire in the hearts of those seeking faith.
