She vocalizes her thoughts because, as evidenced by the popularity of her books and blog, she believes that others have similar concerns and questions.

Here are five of Evans’ most inspirational quotes:

1.
“The same impatience that inspires us to challenge the status quo can prevent us from engaging in the prayerful, contemplative, and disciplined work it takes to live inspired lives of faith, the kind of lives that really make a difference.”

2. “I want the kind of faith that moves mountains precisely because it is small: small enough to need, small enough grow, small enough to surrender to a God that is much bigger than it will ever be.”

3. “I wonder how much happier we would be if we were better friends to ourselves.”

4. “What I’ve realized over these past few weeks is that God didn’t call us to win, God called us to be faithful. God doesn't call us to change the world, God calls us to serve the world.”

5.
“When Christians are told that Christlike forgiveness means accepting every apology as sincere, we can inadvertently perpetuate abuse. There is a difference, after all, between an apology and repentance. An apology is an acknowledgment of wrong. Repentance is marked by a dramatic change in direction, a noticeable change in behavior. While neither an apology nor repentance is required for forgiveness, an apology alone is not enough to rebuild trust.”
