Summary

The women from Sensible Shoes are taking their next steps in the spiritual formation journey. But each of them is finding roadblocks along the way. Meg, a widow and recent empty nester, is off to see her daughter in London. But what does hope look like when nothing goes as planned?

Charissa, a conscientious graduate student, is battling to let go of control and embrace her unexpected pregnancy. But what does hope look like when transformation is slow? Hannah, a pastor on sabbatical, is trying to find her equilibrium with rest and a new relationship. But what does hope look like when old grief keeps resurfacing? Mara, a wife and mother, longs for her difficult family life to improve. But what does hope look like when tension escalates, and circumstances only get worse?

Sometimes life feels like two steps forward and one step back. Find your own spiritual journey reflected in the lives of these women and discover the way forward.

A book to change you

This book will change how you view friendships, love and most of all your prayer life and understanding of God's love for you. I do not know anyone who has read this book and not benefited! I so need to be able to listen to the rest of this series

the voice of the reader didn't work for me

good storyline. grating voice. I skipped a quarter of the book to get to the end, the voice of the reader didn't go well with my ears.

Engaging & Insightful

After doing a group book study of the first in the series 2 years ago, listening to this one on my own was a spiritual experience which opened up places in my heart to feel, think, process and believe right alongside each of the four ladies in this book. I loved the presentation of this story, too — engaging and entertaining. Like she meant every word she spoke. For someone ready to learn and grow in their own life with Jesus, and relate with other people’s journeys through this life - I highly recommend Two Steps Forward!

Paused for Growth

In this sequel to Sensible Shoes, it was refreshing to listen to the growth of each character. I was able to hear a bit of myself in each of them. Most importantly I was able to great God reassuring me thru them that I am loved and to continue to trust Him.

Thought Provoking

Enjoyed the book. These first two books in the series were my first Audible book read and I loved it. Narrator did a good job.

Continues the growth!

This book is a sequel to "Sensible Shoes", and really develops the characters and the relationships between them much more fully. So much insight and so powerful to see women take the risks necessary to become vulnerable, challenge preconceived notions about themselves, each other, and God; it challenged me to do the same.

I like a good devotional but...

I like a good devotional but I didn’t realize this was that. Just very hard to keep up with. And didn’t feel like there was really an ending.
