I finished this book some time ago, but some how never got a review written. I am very impressed with Farrington's ability to discuss discernment. She gives us the right guidance for when and how to discern God's will. I really like her style, her use of words.

“We cannot truly know and understand how God speaks to us unless we have actually experienced
it. Learning to discern the fingerprint of God on your own life allows you to know deep in your soul and your skin the person God calls you to be. Then be that person instead of trying to be what you aren't. You'll be much richer for the experience. So will the rest of the world.”
