What People are Saying About This

Diana Shiflett

"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."

Tosca Lee

"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."

Jana Riess

"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."

Sybil MacBeth

"[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."
