Journey Free – Tauranga

Journey Free – Tauranga


Sharon Galough Brown author of the ‘Sensible Shoes’ series is coming to NZ

[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner equal_height=”yes” content_placement=”middle”][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]Sharon is a Spiritual Director and Pastor and has written the Sensible Shoes novels, following the spiritual journey of four different women, in a beautiful and profound way that connected with my story, and hundreds of others.

She explores and unpacks spiritual practises that enrich spiritual formation and is bible based in all her teachings. Her heart and love for God comes through strongly in everything she does.

Step aside from the usual routine for a two-day event that invites you to slow down and practice disciplines that help you keep in step with the unhurried rhythm of Jesus.

Come along yourself,  or bring a friend, or come with a lifegroup, bring a journal and choose to lean in.

You can expect: Inspiration words and guided sessions in spiritual practices with Sharon, personal time to reflect, create and respond, time in community with other women in search of going deeper, morning and afternoon teas, as well as lunches on both days… and much more.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”39497″ img_size=”full”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_row_inner css=”.vc_custom_1554339578294{background-color: #fecc8d !important;}”][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1554340059150{margin-top: 20px !important;margin-right: 40px !important;margin-bottom: 50px !important;margin-left: 40px !important;border-top-width: 3px !important;border-right-width: 3px !important;border-bottom-width: 3px !important;border-left-width: 3px !important;padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;border-left-color: #ffffff !important;border-left-style: solid !important;border-right-color: #ffffff !important;border-right-style: solid !important;border-top-color: #ffffff !important;border-top-style: solid !important;border-bottom-color: #ffffff !important;border-bottom-style: solid !important;}”]
