Item Description...
Overview
In this remarkable book, Keri Wyatt Kent shows how to open ourselves to more love and joy by listening-to God, our hearts, and 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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Listening well is a huge part of loving well.  Nov 27, 2006
"Real listeners notice. They pay attention."

But how do we become real listeners and to what do we listen?

In Listen: Finding God in the Story of Your Life, Keri Kent takes us on a journey through several forms of listening: listening to our own hearts and desires, listening to others, and listening to God through His Spirit, His people, His Word.

She presents listening to others as a ministry, and distinguishes between merely practicing listening techniques and actually becoming a better listener. As Keri explains: "To truly listen, we must set aside our own junk--selfishness, neediness, overwhelming desire to interrupt with `that reminds me of what happened to me!'"

Listening is costly. But so is love, and listening well is a huge part of loving well.

And when it comes to listening to God, Keri makes a significant point: "Knowing the Scriptures can guard us against putting words in God's mouth. What God is telling us and what we want God to say can sometimes be two different things. If we listen to the Bible, we'll recognize God's voice among the many that shout for our attention."

With refreshing candor, she reveals a truth overlooked by many: "If we spend time listening to MTV or reading People magazine, that's what we are meditating on, even if we don't think of it as meditating. If we repeatedly hear something, our mind will retain it. Think of how many song lyrics you've memorized, simply by hearing songs on the radio. Meditation begins with repetition, to think about something, even on a subconscious level. And that is what will shape our souls and thoughts, even our actions... What we focus on and think about, even passively, affects us. Ultimately, it forms us."

Listen speaks truth, encouragement, and challenge to both new and seasoned travelers who earnestly seek the narrow path.
 
She had me from "hello"  Nov 9, 2006
It's rare that I pick up a book and I'm drawn in from the first paragraph (of the Introduction!) but I was. Keri's book is timely, insightful, and thoughtful. We all need to stop and to listen to the voice of our Savior and to rediscover why we call ourselves believers.
 
LEARN TO PRACTICE THE DISCIPLINE OF SOLITUDE  Sep 16, 2006
A seasoned retreat leader, Kent knows what it's like to be weary, exhausted from the constant noise of our culture. She wrote this book to show readers how we can focus on the Voice that matters, God's whisper of love to us.

"If we really are dialed in to that Voice, it will lead us to our purpose and a deeper relationship with God, which will bring us joy," Kent says.

The author explains how listening is the central spiritual discipline that makes other practices -- such as prayer, worship and study -- transformational in Christians' lives.

She shows readers how we can hear God by paying attention to three areas: the circumstances of our lives, both joys and struggles; the words of other people; and through spiritual practices of solitude, prayer and Scripture.

What better excuse to slip away from the mad rush of busyness than to learn to practice solitude?

Listening: A Spiritual Discipline  Sep 14, 2006
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.
 
Eye Opening...Ear opening  Jul 12, 2006
Keri Wyatt Kent's book Listen : Finding God in the Story of Your Life came at a time when I have been seeking God's guidance in my life, it reminded me that I need to listen to my desires and allow God to lead the way. Keri's book helped me realize how quick I am to offer a suggestion or my advice and that I need to take more time to listen. I would recommend this book to anyone who is searching for some guidance in their life and needs to learn the tool of listening.
