Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“If you’re a spiritually inclined person, I think you’ll really love it. It’s about four women, every one of them coming from a different place spiritually. But all of them in need of a fresh cup of mercy…it’s terrific. I highly recommend it.” Kathie Lee Gifford
"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, New York Times-bestselling author of Havah: The Story of Eve
“A book of four spiritual journeys that we can all relate to. 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, New York Times bestselling author of Havah: The Story of Eve
“Written with a compelling narrative that weaves their lives together, Sensible Shoes offers readers a new understanding of key spiritual practices and support for those who wish to travel deeper into life with God themselves.” ForeWord Reviews
“Sharon Brown’s story provides a way for readers to vicariously dip into deep spiritual practices through the realistic struggles and joys of four women. Through emotionally resonant characters, 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
“By the end of the book I was grateful for author Sharon Garlough Brown’s fresh eyes and voice. She 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
“There are books that offer a can’t-put-it-down reading experience and books that offer truths so resonant that I am compelled to stop reading and ponder awhile. Sensible Shoes is both. Its characters have become spiritual companions for my journey.” Doreen Olson, executive minister of Christian formation, the Evangelical Covenant Church
“As a reader, I was captivated by this story and its characters. Once begun, it was hard to put down. As a long-time spiritual director and retreat leader, I found the stories of spiritual transformation to be true to what I have seen with my directees and on retreats.” Rev. Jim Gaderlund, spiritual director and retreat leader
