Wonder, joy and beauty are not as far away as we might think—
if only we open our minds and souls to the sound of God’s whispering voice.
So Karyn Kedar reminds us. By sharing significant moments in the lives of ordinary people, she helps us along the journey to spiritual awareness and understanding.
Drawing on her experience as a spiritual leader, Kedar’s gentle, revealing stories include that of a woman struggling to come to terms with her mother’s death at the hands of her father; a thirteen-year-old girl who finds hope within the uncertainty of her parents’ divorce; a realtor who entered for the hundredth time a house she was trying to sell—and suddenly saw the beauty of God’s creation in the way the sunlight struck the hardwood floors.
God Whispers teaches readers of all faiths and backgrounds that the joy and pain in our lives have meaning and purpose, and that by fully embracing life’s highs and lows, we can enrich our spiritual well-being. Kedar tells eloquent stories from the lives of ordinary people who, like all of us, must cope with difficulties such as divorce and reconciliation, illness, loss, conflict and forgiveness, loneliness and isolation.
God Whispers will inspire you to take a second look at everything around you, and to rediscover a world that can be filled with the wonders of creation. “The universe abounds with gifts,” Kedar writes. “Open your heart and receive them.”
