Description

Walk in Her Sandals takes you deeper into your relationship with Jesus by helping you relate to him in a profoundly intimate way. Looking at six universal gifts of women through the eyes of women in the gospels, the book guides you on a prayerful and creative journey through the days of Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost. As you imagine the experience of the women who met Jesus, you will discover how each of them expressed one of six, distinctive, feminine gifts identified in the writings of St. John Paul II. Through the eyes of an imagined woman who watched Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, you will understand how she conveyed the gift of receptivity. Through the hands of Veronica, who reached out to wipe the face of Jesus, you will discover how sensitivity is present and can grow in your own life. These gifts, along with generosity, prayer, maternity, and the Holy Spirit, come to life through the vivid portrayal of women who walked with Jesus. Their imagined stories are complemented by the real accounts of contemporary women who share their own stories of receiving and cultivating these gifts.show more

Review quote

"Walk in Her Sandals is a devotional tapestry, richly woven from the poignant threads of women's intimate experiences of Jesus. Experience how those moments forever changed their lives, and moment by intimate moment, you, too, will be changed." --Sonja Corbitt, Catholic speaker, radio host, and author of Unleashed "Kelly Wahlquist's stunning team effort, Walk in Her Sandals, dramatically raises the bar for women's resources with its innovative approach to exploring feminine gifts as pathways to Christ." --Lisa Mladinich, Catholic author and creator of Amazing Catechists "In Walk in Her Sandals you will hear a symphony of wisdom, insight, and practical application. What this team of women has accomplished is remarkable. They have opened up a world of opportunity for other women to enjoy their relationship with God and at the same time discover aspects of their being in a new and profound way." --Jeff Cavins, Coauthor of The Great Adventure Catholic Bible Study Program "Walk in Her Sandals teaches readers to use imaginative prayer by bringing to life the women who accompanied Christ through his passion, death, and resurrection. It seeks to help contemporary women discover their own call to be missionary disciples in the service of the New Evangelization. Many will benefit from reading this book." --Most Rev. Andrew Cozzens, Auxiliary Bishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis "This book truly makes the scriptural account of Christ's passion come alive! Readers will find themselves entering into the story in a whole new way and experiencing the unique gifts and central role of women. A treasure for spiritual growth during Lent and Easter!" --Mary Healy, Associate professor of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Heart Major Seminary "You'll find yourself walking as a companion to Jesus and toward Easter in a whole new way, thanks to the treasure within this book." --Sarah Reinhard, Catholic writer, blogger, author, and editor of Word by Wordshow more
