The Two Steps Forward Study Guide is a companion to Two Steps Forward book (2nd book in the Sensible Shoes series). It is setup as an 8-week study guide that follows the character’s journey through Advent using the spiritual disciplines introduced in the Sensible Shoes book (1st book in the series). (It is general enough to cover anytime of the year, not just at Advent.) Spiritual disciplines covered include breath prayer, lectio divina, palms down / palms up prayer, the examen, praying with imagination, journaling, waiting, guidance, intercessory prayer, telling your story, service, gratitude. Each week includes six days of reflection questions and bible readings. The sixth day is reserved for review of the week. Group discussion questions are available at the end of each week. A guide for the readings from the Two Steps Forward book is also included. This study guide challenged me to go deeper in my walk with Christ, to meditate on how he is being born in me anew as I grow closer to him. I highly recommend this study guide. I received a complimentary copy of this study guide from the publisher. My opinions are my own.
