Sharon Garlough Brown tells the moving story of four strangers as they embark together on a journey of spiritual formation: Hannah, a pastor who doesn't realize how exhausted she is. Meg, a widow and recent empty-nester who is haunted by her past. Mara, a woman who has experienced a lifetime of rejection and is now trying to navigate a difficult marriage. Charissa, a hard-working graduate student who wants to get things right. You're invited to join these four women as they reluctantly arrive at a retreat center and find themselves drawn out of their separate stories of isolation and struggle and into a collective journey of spiritual practice, mutual support and personal revelation. Along the way, readers will be taken into a new understanding of key spiritual practices and find tangible support for the deeper life with God. If you want to travel this journey with others, you will find a group study guide and book club resources at

The individuals involved handled their concerns in different ways, using the suggestions gained in the group, he said.
   Absolutely delightful, a great book club read or for a women's bible study group!
I went through this book with a group of friends and it was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the characters and the experiences they went through in learning more about themselves, Morgenthau said. It's fun, light, captivating, and introspective, Levine said. Loved it, as well as everyone in the group, Raymond said. Then we got to meet the Author, who was absolutely delightful! We all are looking forward to her next book! It's great to be back home, said Blair.
   Simply amazing!
It's a book that speaks to your heart. The book takes you on a journey of discovery of a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. The book is intended to help you seek out a closer walk with the Lord. This book will help you get more room in your heart to learn how to get more fellowship with God and a deeper relationship with Jesus. Overall, I give 5 stars to this movie.
   Excellent Book
Four women who were not related by blood or religion were the subject of this book. At first they seem very different, but in going through a spiritual journey class, find that they have more in common than they first thought. Many of the quotes were paraphrased from the book, making me stop and think. I enjoyed this book and want to read it again to just take in the things that were mentioned, said Dr. Goin. Many of the issues that troubled the women in her life were resolved through the spiritual journey that they took. Even though they have different personalities, these 4 become a real support group for each other as well as friends.
   Be prepared for an amazing, thought-provoking journey
An amazing story. I've loved it so much that I purchased a paper copy so I can go back and write in the pages and journal more freely. This book will challenge and strengthen your faith. What a fabulous evening!
I purchased this book to read while on vacation. I have now finished three of the four. The second part was excellent, and would highly recommend.
   Spiritual!ity not Christianity
In the pages of the Bible, there is what we need to grow and mature in Christ. Adding to that mystical tool set is very unnecessary. Books can bless but why are we finding more and more Christians talking about these practices and integrating them into our spiritual journey? I did not finish the book.
   Great book
The first time I read the book, I got it from the library. It's just that easy to read," said Darl McBride, assistant professor at the University of Alabama. The author did a good job keeping you in suspense about each character and made me think where is my Christian walk what area do I need to work on, he said. Even if the NIH didn't get involved, this would be a great study. The third and final volume of the series will be released on September 5, 2004.
   Satisfying read
I accidentally found a reference to the new book, so I ordered the first one to see how I would like it. I have been going through a struggle and this book sounded like something I needed. I'm not great at how to books. It was a really good movie, said Blair. It encouraged me and gave me a story to enjoy, he said. It came at the perfect time for me, Taylor said. I'm about to order the next book in the series.
   It's impossible to read this book and remain unchanged in some way!
We get inside someone else's head and heart and learn how they tick. The process of spiritual growth carries you along and teaches you about your own needs and possibilities to walk deeper with Jesus.
