Well--I know you are all tired of waiting to hear the title of the book which  I have savored --paused and considered--been challenged by.  Here you go

You can find this book HERE.  Since I am an Amazon Associate--and they want you to know if you use this link they might pay me a very small % of the sale.  This is not going to make me rich and in fact---I donate any compensation to ministries for the least of these.  BUT to keep them happy and for your ease in finding--here is the link--use or not use--just please read the book.

I really thought I was a good listener---I have been humbled by this book.  So much wisdom--I have almost every page filled with underlines and notes.  I could not say it better than the book description~

"Adam McHugh places listening as the heart of our spirituality, our relationships and our mission in the world.  God Himself is the God who hears, and we too can learn to hear what God may be saying, through creation, through Scripture, through people.  By cultivating a posture of listening, we become more attentive and engaged with those around us, and more able to minister to those in distress.  Our lives are qualitatively different - indeed, better - when we become listeners.  Heed the call to the listening life, and hear what God is doing in you and the world."

The best endorsement I ever give a book is - I PLAN TO KEEP THIS BOOK.  Normally I pass books on--but this one will bear going back to over and over.

"Let every person be quick to HEAR,

slow go speak,

slow to anger."

James 1:19


  1. I'm so glad this wonderful book spoke to you so deeply, Lulu! It's one I've kept in my library, too. I was hoping to revisit it sooner than later, but I received so many new reads for my birthday, I will have to tackle those first.

    1. Thank you for this rec, Martha! One of the best books I have read in a while!


Your comments keep my writing and often cause me to think. A written form of a hug or a pat on the back and an occasional slap into reality---I treasure them all!
