Publisher's Summary

Beautiful Things Can Emerge from Life Not Going as Planned

When life takes one too many unexpected turns, do you find yourself saying, “I don’t know who I am anymore”? In the wake of shattered dreams, do you wonder how you will keep going - and if you’ll ever find purpose or joy again?

After infertility, an international move, and a professional change shook Sheridan Voysey’s world, he realized that he couldn’t reconcile his expectations with the life he was living. Feeling lost, he decided to pair his spiritual journey with a literal one: a hundred-mile pilgrimage along the northeast coast of England.

Inspired by the life and influence of the seventh-century monk Cuthbert, Sheridan travelled on foot from the Holy Island of Lindisfarne to Durham. Taking his friend DJ along for the journey, and keeping a journal by his side, Sheridan discovered not resolution but peace. Not ambition but purpose. Not shouts of convictions but whispers of the presence of God.

In The Making of Us, Sheridan invites us to join him as he walks along England’s shores and we trace the borders of our own hearts. Part pilgrim’s journal, part call to reflection, The Making of Us eloquently reminds us of the beauty of journeying into uncertainty, the freedom of letting go, and the wonder of losing our identity only to discover who we really are. Follow along on Sheridan’s journey with photos available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Unexpected and Enduring



An affirmation that life itself is a pilgrimage, in which God calls us to attend to life as it happens to, within and around us.
Sheridans accounts of his journey and conversations with his dear friend DJ encourages an awakening to a contemplative approach to life and relationships.

A transformative read which opens the mind and heart to awareness of life as a deeper journey to self and the heart of God.

Surprising and full of texture

Sheridan had a way of making me feel that I had joined him and DJ on this pilgrimage. The story is rich in history, life lessons and moments of pause to cause reflection.
I believe this book would appeal to a large audience.
