she follows the story of Elijah to outline how to hear Jesus in an often loud and confusing world. Ruth walks you through, chapter by chapter, on how to begin or extend your quite time, quite time, and/or mediation time. Following each chapter, there is an application part that helps sum up what you read and also take the time to put into practice what the chapter talks about.

For someone who hadn't really spent a lot of time in silence, this book was great to learn how to quite my mind and enter into a time where I can be real and honest with Jesus. This is one of those books that I will re-read once a year as I feel that no matter where you are in your walk, this book will be helpful to you!

I also recommend it as a small group study too.
