This book is illuminating especially for those of us who desperately long to hear from God. I put the book down several times in order to ponder the truths Liz Ditty communicates. It invited me to look at myself, my life with God, and Christian Community in a new way. Liz makes a difficult topic easier to understand and also relatable. That is truly a feat. I was convicted. And, I can say that God spoke to me through this book. It has been one of his many voices in my life.
