Product Description

This is a story about four women’s lives. Each is at a different place and spiritual level. The series began with a pastor’s wife, an empty nester, a difficult marriage and working graduate student. This book continues with a soon to be divorcee, a career opportunity with a new baby on the way, the possibility of illness and an engagement. They ask God to show them how to trust in him and give them confidence through his love, guidance and support.

Publisher's Description

The spiritual journey takes unexpected turns for the women of Sensible Shoes in this third book of the series, continuing on from the events of Two Steps Forward. Having been challenged to persevere in hope, can they now embrace the joy of complete surrender? Mara: With two boys at home and a divorce on the way, can she let go of her resentment and bitterness and find a rhythm of grace in her "new normal"? Hannah: With Nathan by her side, can she let go of expectations—and even her reputation—as she charts a new course? Charissa: As her approaching due date threatens to collide with new professional opportunities, can she let go of her need for control and embrace the unknown future with trust? Meg: With disappointment over broken relationships and unfulfilled dreams, can she let go of her fear and worry in the face of even greater challenges that lie ahead? Join the women of the Sensible Shoes Club in a poignant story that reveals the joy that comes from laying our lives at the feet of God and standing barefoot on holy ground.

Editorial Reviews

"Sharon Garlough Brown may be a novelist, but she's also a portrait artist, painting with tender detail the souls of four women on a spiritual journey. This third installment is harrowing, lovely, joyous—like life, like faith. Beautifully rendered!"
"Poignant and achingly beautiful, each woman progresses in her walk and in community. Recommended for women who are passionate about seeking God. Insightful study guide included."
"How grateful I am to be reunited with Hannah, Meg, Mara, and Charissa, my friends in Sharon Garlough Brown's Sensible Shoes series. Having already journeyed with them through seasons of growth and change, I was eager to see what this third novel, Barefoot, would reveal. And what a tender story ensued as these women faced both serendipitous joy and heart-wrenching sorrow. The thread of being in a supportive prayer circle is powerful in each of these books, and the valuable spiritual exercises woven throughout help us to process as well. . . . Barefoot brings us gently to the place where we know the only adequate response is to take off our shoes and stand before God on holy ground."
"Prepare to be encouraged, inspired, stretched, and wrung out by Barefoot. This enriching novel reveals God's transforming presence in the lives of four imperfect but beloved friends. Don't miss it."
"During a difficult year of loss in my own life, I found great comfort in this fictional tale of four friends with true-to-life faith. The way they relate with Christ and one another in grief, disappointment, celebration, and joy served as a kind companion to me personally, as well as a creative reminder of some of my favorite spiritual practices."
"Sharon Garlough Brown does not disappoint. That's because what undergirds all of her books is deep truth. One reads them and thinks, yes, that's how churches can be, or yes, that's what it's like to parent a twenty-something, or yes, that's a friendship that mirrors mine. But the deepest truth when we read her books is this one: yes, that's what a life of faith looks like—battered yet sustained, wounded yet deeply hopeful that God is up to something. These books resonate because they feel so true and because this is how we long to be: barefoot, surrendered, saying here I am to the One who guides our steps."
"Whether or not you've been a devoted reader of Sharon Garlough Brown's Sensible Shoes series, you will find yourself in the lives of the four women of Barefoot—in their gratitude and grief, their longings and resilient hopes. Most importantly, you'll meet Jesus, who startles us with this never-ending surprise: we are his beloved."

    Debs Dozen: Lifes never easy, but faith in God and friends makes living worthwhile.

    Barefoot is the third book in the Sensible Shoes series and in some respects, touched me more deeply than the other two. The deeply spiritual journey of Sensible Shoes, the closeness the characters gained carried over into book two, Two Steps Forward, Barefoot brings us yet another level further into the journey of these four women: Meg, Charissa, Hannah, and Mara.

    Life interferes with the desires of each woman to go deeper spiritually. Hannah struggles with the new relationship shes found and what her ministry will be. Charissa, pregnant, finds her well-ordered life and career spinning away from her control. Mara fights her antipathy toward her soon-to-be-ex-husband and grapples with how to handle her two, very different sons. Sweet Meg tries to get over her broken relationship and her broken dreams.

    Each of them in their own way works to merge their day to day life with their spiritual life. Each of them is more or less successful. All of them are vibrant characters you identify with intimately. Brown has created characters who teach us how to walk in faith and more closely with God despite our daily problems. These women arent perfect; theyre realand theyre friendsand they become our friends as well.

    You will want to take this journey with them. From Sensible Shoes to Two Steps Forward to Barefoot, the trip is one every woman should take. Five stars.

    Sharon Garlough Brown is a spiritual director and co-founder of Abiding Way Ministries, providing spiritual formation retreats. She has an MDiv from Princeton Theological Seminar. She and her husband, Jack, have ministered in Scotland, Oklahoma, England, and West Michigan. Sharon, like her characters, is realand a friend.

    InterVarsity Press gave me a copy of Barefoot, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.

    This book is an emotional simplistic soulful and yet victorious story. You have four women who rely on each other to stand firm in the LORD - they get together and share their lives with each other and they bounce their lives off of each other. They give their opinions wanted or not - and it is always tethered with the love of CHRIST. Will they always follow those suggestions? They have people in their lives that causes them difficulties to cast their cares upon HIM - that is why they turn to each other to turn to HIM. They are each others life line. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
