What People are Saying About This

Lucinda Secrest McDowell

"Yet again, Sharon Garlough Brown offers the perfect blend of a riveting story and spiritual content—this time during the season of Lent. Redeeming and refreshing, I highly recommend it, even though it means saying goodbye to literary friends I have enjoyed for four novels."

Sarah Arthur

"Don't miss this last mile. Reckoning with loss, life not going as planned, and relinquishing plans altogether, An Extra Mile is as harrowing as it is satisfying."

An Extra Mile Study Guide is a companion to the book, An Extra Mile (4th and final book in the Sensible Shoes series). It is setup as an 8-week study guide that follows the character’s journey through Lent and Easter. Groups using this guide are challenged to attend or organize a Stations of the Cross prayer walk and a silence and solitude one day retreat. Each week includes six days of bible readings and reflection questions. Participants are encouraged to keep a journal to answer the questions and reflect on the bible readings. Day six is typically a review day. Each week, group discussion questions are provided including spiritual disciplines such as silence and lectio divina. The study guide is a beautiful companion to An Extra Mile, the book, and draws you in to the character’s spiritual grown as you grow along with them. I received a complimentary copy of this study guide from the publisher. My opinions are my own.
