Take a sacred journey alongside Meg, Mara, Charissa, and Hannah - the characters in the novel, Sensible Shoes. The books tells the moving story of four strangers who embark together on a journey of spiritual formation.
This companion guide to the book consists of twelve weeks of daily (five days a week) Scripture reading, prayer, and reflection questions. You are also encouraged to keep a journal to record your thoughts and experiences.
You can decide whether to read Sensible Shoes first in its entirety and then return to do a slow study with the guide, or to read it a section at a time, matching your pace to the daily questions. You aren't meant to travel alone so there are group discussion questions offered at the end of each week.

About the Series▼▲
In this Sensible Shoes Series which began with the bestselling Sensible Shoes, author Sharon Garlough Brown invites you to join in the journeys of Hannah, Meg, Mara, and Charissa as they - and you - gain a new understanding of friendship, spiritual truths and a deeper life with God. Each book in the series has an accompanying Study Guide. Characters are:
- Hannah, a pastor who doesn't realize how exhausted she is
- Meg, a widow and recent empty-nester who is haunted by her past
- Mara, a woman who has experienced a lifetime of rejection and is now trying to navigate a difficult marriage
- Charissa, a hard-working graduate student who wants to get things right
Book 1 - In Sensible Shoes, you will meet these four women as they reluctantly arrive at a retreat center and embark together on a journey of spiritual formation. They find themselves drawn out of their separate stories of isolation and struggle and into a collective journey of spiritual practice, mutual support and personal revelation.
Book 2- We continue the journey as the women face roadblocks in the second book, Two Steps Forward. Sometimes life feels like two steps forward and one step back, but there is always hope. Find your own spiritual journey reflected in their lives and discover the way forward.
Book 3 - The third book, Barefoot, takes the women through unexpected turns in their spiritual journeys. Having been challenged to persevere in hope, can they now embrace the joy of complete surrender?
Book 4 - An Extra Mile, the fourth and final book in the series, the women are navigating both deep joy and devastating loss. Travel with these beloved friends as they endure trials that test their trust and their willingness to walk an extra mile.
