Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of “A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice” in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are 100% my own.
As a child (a child of a pastor), I always wondered how I’d hear God’s voice. I fully expected a big, booming noise to rain down from Heaven, telling me that everything was going to be okay. My parents couldn’t really explain it to me, but throughout the years I’ve learned to listen and hear it.
Leighann McCoy explores this discovery in her book, “A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice”. You see, He’s always speaking — it’s just that we need to learn to listen. McCoy presents chapters on times in her life that she and her family have learned to listen to God’s voice and weaves it into biblical teachings. Discussion questions and applications to real life are included. You know, sometimes God is in the thick — are we ready to hear?
Because McCoy is a cancer survivor and had a daughter with an unplanned pregnancy, I really connected with the stories within. It took me to the times that God was speaking to me – through the loss of Wendy and through the blessing of having Arianna (and in turn, Greg happening to be there at the hospital when I gave birth). These were truly dark times in my life, but LOUD AND CLEAR, God gave me reasons to go on. God is bigger than anything he lays before our path.
This book would be another great one for a Women’s Bible Study group, complete with activities and an event to plan in the Appendix. While it may not be easy to hear God’s voice, we have to believe it is there.
A Woman’s Guide to Hearing God’s Voice is published by Bethany House and retails for $13.99.
