Thanks for your list of great books --- I have selected a few and ordered them from my library. I can definitely share your recommendation of "Sensible Shoes" by Sharon Garlough Brown.

Which character did you most identify with? I think I am a mixture of Hannah and Charissa.

I have attended a number of online and in person retreats with Sharon and they always inspire me and deepen my spiritual life. I would highly recommend this book and her retreats.

I'm so glad you found some books on this list that resonate with you!

I, too, found myself mirrored in both Hannah and Charissa in Sensible Shoes -- how interesting that we shared the same experience! I had no idea that Sharon held retreats. I am definitely going to be looking into that because I would love to attend! Thank you for that info.

Oh yes, she has connections to New Zealand and came down here to hold a weekend retreat --- it was sooooo good! I came away completely reset, refreshed and revitalised. I discovered new ways to deepen my connection and relationship with Jesus, Papa God and Spirit. Highly recommend. During Covid she took to do retreats online via zoom --- still good.
