This is the fourth book in the Sensible Shoes series by Sharon Garlough Brown. If you’ve read any of the others, this one will not be disappointing. It continues the spiritual journey of friends Hannah, Mara and Charissa, after the death of Meg. Meg’s daughter, Becca, returns home and is added to the mix Each character continues to grow in her understanding of God’s call in her life. The overarching theme woven throughout is resurrection — as we die physically, or simply to certain life experiences, we continue to find growth and rebirth through God’s grace. Put on your sensible shoes and walk with these women on this stretch of their spiritual journey!
Throughout the book, readers are invited to engage with material used by the characters for meditation and prayer during their small group meetings. There are additional suggestions in the closing Companion Guide for Prayer. I have found these very helpful for use in my own personal devotional and journaling time.
As with the other three volumes, this would be an excellent resource for a book club or small group study. I would recommend reading them in order. Follow the links below to learn about the first three:
