What next steps is God calling you to take?

Join the characters of An Extra Mile, the final book in the Sensible Shoes series, as they journey through the seasons of Lent and Easter. In this eight-week study guide you'll dive deeper into key spiritual practices from the book, using daily Scripture readings and reflection questions designed to help you be attentive to the invitations of the Holy Spirit. Each week concludes with discussion questions and suggested practices for groups to do together.

This guide offers the perfect tools for individuals and groups to explore and apply the spiritual formation themes of An Extra Mile along with Mara, Hannah, Charissa, and Becca.

"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."

Sarah Arthur, preliminary fiction judge for the Christianity Today Book Awards

"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."

Lucinda Secrest McDowell, author of Ordinary Graces
