A Woman's Guide to Hearing God's Voice by Leighann McCoy
From the publisher:
God is speaking, readers just need to learn how to listen. This is especially true during times of trial or heartache, when women need to be reassured that God has a plan. In A Woman's Guide to Hearing God's Voice, McCoy provides personal stories, biblical narratives, and wise insight to demonstrate how God is already active in every woman's life. It's just a matter of knowing what to look for. Women will not only be reassured of God's care, they will be challenged to take hold of God when their faith is shaken. Includes end-of-chapter discussion questions for personal or group use.
I first read Leighann McCoy's Spiritual Warfare for Women and it was very impactful on my spiritual life. When I saw that she had another book I jumped at the chance to review it. I am very glad and blessed that I did.
I think a lot of people want to hear and audible voice from God, but Leighann directs us to the BIble as how we hear from the voice of God. She specifically focuses on how to hear God in difficult times. Throughout the book she uses Biblical accounts and personal narratives to show us ways in which God speaks to us through the struggles of life. While she will write the Bible story in her own words she always gives us the passage where it comes from in the Bible and asks us to read the Biblical account on our own.
At the end of each chapter is a section where the reader (or a group) can really get into the heart of the matter. There is a section for personal reflections, discussion questions, and a Bible verse to memorize to keep as a treasure. Whether you are reading this book by yourself or with a group these end sections will be a true blessing. If you only read the book and skip these sections you will miss out on a personal connection with God and hearing His voice.
Leighann writes in a way that invites you into the intimate details of her life as a true friend, but she will not only back on sharing harder lessons. She is a true spiritual mentor and I can't wait to share this book with others.
I highly recommend this book and Leighann McCoy as an author.
I received this book free from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
