Hey, my friends. Welcome back to Let’s Encourage One Another.
If I had to pick one author who has most deeply impacted me and taught me about life with God, I daresay it is Sharon Garlough Brown.
The way she is able to weave spiritual insight into a story format resonates with me, and I am able to connect not only with her characters but also connect more deeply with God.
And that is just one of many reasons why I am excited to share this conversation with you today. Sharon and I were able to talk about her books, but also about her own experience in spiritual direction and how God has led her to become a spiritual director, retreat leader, and author.
Her first series is called Sensible Shoes and her latest one is called Shades of Light. In fact, the newest book in that series is releasing now, and I have already received my copy and have been reading it and sitting with it. You guys, it is so incredibly good.
Sharon has graciously provided a promotion code for you to use to save 30% off when ordering her new book—and get free shipping, too. Just go to ivpress.com and use the code “SHARON22”. It’s only good for the next two weeks, so be sure to use it by April 26th. Again, the code is “SHARON22”.
Sharon’s spirit is so gentle and wise, and she, like so many of my guests, shares parts of her story that are sacred and personal. I know you won’t take it lightly, but will honor it as holy and sacred.
Sharon Garlough Brown is an author, spiritual director, and retreat speaker who travels internationally to lead events. A graduate of Princeton Theological Seminary, Sharon has served on the pastoral staff of congregations in Scotland, Oklahoma, England, and most recently in West Michigan, where she co-pastored with her husband, Jack. She and Jack now oversee Abiding Way Ministries (www.abidingway.life) which offers spiritual formation retreats and resources, including daily lectio divina recordings.
Sharon’s spiritual formation novels in the bestselling Sensible Shoes series follow the journey of characters who are learning to rest in the love of God. Her Shades of Light series explores mental health, grief, and God’s presence with us in affliction. Her latest novel, Feathers of Hope, releases in April 2022.
