Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

"[Sharon Garlough Brown] not only gave me resharpened tools for my journey with Jesus but also reminded me that I need fellow pilgrims to love me and keep me honest along the way." -- Sybil MacBeth, author of Praying in Color

"Provides a way for readers to vicariously dip into deep spiritual practices through the realistic struggles and joys of four women. . . . Sensible Shoes encourages us to communicate with God in new ways, broadening our spiritual journey one step at a time." -- Jana Riess, author of Flunking Sainthood

"Filled with spiritual insight, truth, beauty, and discovery—not to mention deft and beautiful prose. A story to open eyes, to comfort and remind us of the importance of relationship." -- Tosca Lee, author of Havah: The Story of Eve

"I have used the Sensible Shoes Study Guide multiple times now with several different women's groups over the last few years. I have been amazed how much the guide helps women dig deeply into what God is stirring in their souls. Women who have never addressed pain or heartache are able to let the great healer Jesus come near and receive his healing through the guidance of the questions in the study guide. The book Sensible Shoes is a beautiful read. When added with the study guide it becomes a beautiful transformative work in women's lives. The women I have walked with over the years always find themselves in the characters of the book, which gives them permission to address what God needs them to process in life." -- Diana Shiflett, pastor and author of Spiritual Practices in Community
