RETREAT/CONFERENCE

Title: Sensible Shoes: A Story About The Spiritual Journey

Team members: Kathy Aldridge, Patty Davis, Cynthia Cooper

Author: Sharon Garlough Brown

CONTACT: Annette Quimby · haqbshop@gmail.com

Brown writes a powerful fictional story of four women, each with issues and baggage from their past, who meet at a retreat center in Michigan. Through their interactions God begins to move them from brokenness to wholeness, and the journey is breathtakingly inspiring. Wellwritten and insightful, Sensible Shoes is honest and raw in the way that life is and opens the door for authentic reflection on the ways in which God stirs us to step beyond our pasts and embrace a life that is rich and deep and saturated with His presence.
