Book Description


Join Gretchen Schwartzman on a transformative journey of faith, highlighting the profound lessons she learned in recent years about the power of hearing God’s voice. Her spiritual odyssey began with a divine nudge at the onset of a Lenten season, prompting a commitment to a daily moment of stillness and listening. What unfolds is not a routine practice of scripture reading or prayer, but a dedicated time for quietude, aimed at cultivating an intimate dialogue with the Divine.

As Gretchen embarks on this discipline of silence, she is moved to document the words and messages received from God. Soon, these private encounters with God’s voice evolved into a compelling call to share the insights gained with a wider audience, beginning with her church community and eventually leading to the creation of this book. 

One of the frequent themes of these writings is intimacy with God. He has created us for intimacy with Himself. Adam and Eve enjoyed true intimacy with God in the garden before the fall. Ever since then, humanity has been seeking that intimacy that has been lost. In this present age, Jesus has opened that door for that intimacy to be restored, and the Holy Spirit teaches us and leads us into that intimate relationship with God that our hearts long for.
