Product Description

In this remarkable book, Keri Wyatt Kent shows how to open ourselves to more love and joy by listening - to God, to our hearts, and to each other. By listening, we discover God in our own stories and in other people's stories. Throughout the book, Kent shares her personal experiences and shows that by reflecting on our own story we can discover the things that bring us joy and the things we love and hold dear. Once we are more aware of the joy and love that are already in our lives, we can notice God. Listening is the central spiritual practice that makes other practices - such as prayer, worship, and study - transformational in our lives.

    I recently have been doing a lot of soul-searching about priorities in my life. This book speaks volumes to my heart and has been quite helpful. Thank you Lord for inspiring Ms. Wyatt Kent to choose a spiritual path for her writing. Her inspiration in turn has inspired me.

    Keri has helped me to see the vital role of the listener in the body of Christ. "I am not God, but I can act in a Christ-like manner in any number of ways, including by listening to others' pain or to their joys and rejoicing with them (p. 83)." Listening conveys the love of Christ. When Christ's love is given it has the power to transform lives. That is the power of listening.

    Why is the spiritual discipline, listening, one that can be so transforming and life-changing? Keri Wyatt Kent's book, Listen, will take you gently through a deeper understanding of how to focus on hearing God.Her readable style captures your attention and prepares your heart for the deeper spiritual truths. Practical application ideas are woven into each chapter bringing hope for true change and spiritual growth. Keri helps the reader explore a few practices: silence, reading scripture, and prayer. "The goal is to open up space for God--a space where you can be with him, to really listen so that your life will be changed in ways you couldn't change it yourself. Listening puts aside our self-preoccupation and puts the focus where it should be--on God."

    "Can you hear me now?" That is a question that we frequently hear in this world of vast communications which includes, cordless phones, cell phones, e-mails, just to name a few.In the midst of this, Keri Wyatt Kent poses some profound questions:"What if I could listen, not just to get good at a skill but for the purpose of transforming my life and relationships? What would happen to you as a person if you knew that you were heard, and loved, and that you had the ability to love, and listen to others?"Thus begins the invitation to listen, to find God in the story of our lives. Keri Wyatt Kent, in her thought-provoking book, listen, challenges the reader to listen "so that you can take who you are and put it into what you do." She models through her writing her personal and honest experiences and shares how to practice listening through silence, scripture and prayer.I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to deepen their relationship with God and experience the transforming power of love flow through their lives. Accept the invitation and...listen.

    I first became a fan of Keri's after reading "God's Whisper in a Mother's Chaos." Since then, I've followed her work closely. In "Listen", Keri challenges readers to be disciplined enough to listen to what God has to say, something that's a challenge for me. She writes, "Listening to your life has a purpose. You listen to it so that you can take who you are and put in into what you do." Later, she expounds on that thought. "Sure, you need to know yourself, but not just so you can be self-aware. It's so that you can be more God-aware." Keri's desire to be more God-aware has touched my own walk with the Lord. Open this book, and it will touch yours too.
