Not disappointed

This book was recommended to me by another ladies small group leader. Once I began to read it I knew it was a must for the ladies in our group. Each one can identify with one or more of the characters in the book and the reality that we need to journey together. It’s been a soul searching read. The book has been recommended by each of the 8 ladies in our group to others and the word is spreading that it is a must read. It has drawn us closer to Jesus and to each other. You really need to have a deep trust of the ladies in your group in order to share honestly. We purchased the study guide and appreciate being able to answer some questions privately while sharing in some group questions.

Following Jesus in Sensible Shoes

The first book in the series Sensible Shoes introduces us to four very different women, each at a different point in her faith life, as they explore spiritual disciplines and grow closer to God. The writing is engaging, the characters are true-to-life, and the spiritual disciplines are introduced in a way that invites the reader to participate in this faith journey. Highly recommended!
