God is always speaking . . . even when He doesn't use words.

We live in a post-verbal society that communicates through images--television, smartphones, the Internet--and our Creator longs to communicate with us visually if we'll live with our eyes wide open.

Full disclosure: I won this book from Goodreads. I loved some parts of it while other parts I really didn't like, so I'm splitting the difference and giving it 3 stars. It seems like the only fair thing to do.
Everyone else has spent their reviews raving about how wonderful it was, so I'm going to skip over that stuff and mention what bothered me. First, the author's writing style. I could tell she used to work for the home shopping network; the salesman style approach of "here's what I'm gonna

I have always been a dreamer. I can remember most of my dreams in the morning or have an idea of what happened and sometimes something will trigger my memory and I will remember the craziest dream. My husband tells me I always have crazy dreams. And honestly, a lot of them do seem strange.

Seeing the Voice of God challenges you to start looking at your dreams in a different way. It asks us to wake up (literally) and take notice of what you have been dreaming about. Laura encourages you to write d

NOW I SEE:

Could not put this book down! I have learned to listen to God's voice because I didn't think He would speak to me in this way. Thank you for sharing your personal life and wisdom to help people just like me to understand that God doesn't just speak to us one specific way.

Amazing. Mind blowing. Really, whatever words I use, none can fully describe how utterly joyful I am because of reading this book and absolutely soaking in all the knowledge and words of wisdom. My life and view of God and the world is forever changed. Both my eyes and my heart are open to a whole new dimension.

This is a great choice for the person who wants to understand dreams and a Biblical interpretation of them. It is clear, easy to read, and informative. It includes a dream symbol dictionary, dream recall helps as well as explaining the different types of dreams. I enjoyed it and have given it as a gift to friends who were curious about the topic.

This book is more than I expected it to be - in a good way!

I have several books on dreams and visions (The Divinity Code to Understanding Your Dreams and Visions and others), most of which are very good, but this one is different. It isn't an encyclopedia of terms/phrases the help interpret your dreams/visions, it's more of a help book in getting to where you dream and remember your dreams. She goes through the importance of sleep and how to get the best possible sleep. Once we get the quality s

"Seeing The Voice of God" is one of the most comprehensive, well-researched, and Biblically sound books I've read. It is full of so much more than understanding dreams and communication from God to us through dreams, though of course there is detailed study of that. Without ever sounding flaky or fruity, the author covers this subject beautifully with tons of Scripture backing up her teaching, while also including personal experiences. She consults top sleep physicians and specialists to underst ...more

This book is mostly about the realm of seeing the things of God but does also include a whole chapter on hearing the voice of God as well. This book emphasizes dreams and visions (as per the subtitle, What God Is Telling You through Dreams & Visions) but in actuality is very broad in what is included within.

There is extensive information on the Hebrew definitions of words like vision, dreams, translations and scripture references of the same. This book contains a comprehensive dream symbol d

This book is absolutely amazing. I can’t even really hit on why it is so amazing it just is! From the very first page I was well engaged and I felt like I was having some sort of epiphany regarding my dreams, what God is telling me, how I listen, how I don’t listen and how to understand when I am truly hearing/seeing the voice of God and His will for my life!

In the very first chapter the author speaks of a dream she had and her husband immediately knew what it meant and then she speaks about how

Seeing the Voice of God, reminds us that the Lord uses both our dreams and visions to reach us, so we should not discount them. We are reminded too that if we wholeheartedly give ourselves to God through his Son, Jesus Christ we should expect to talk with him daily.

This is an engaging book for those seeking discernment of their dreams, containing biblical scripture to support its perspective. It reveals if and what God is showing you through your dreams.

I have a clearer understanding of symbolism in dreams, supplements that affect sleep, and a better awareness of my own sleeping habits. I found this book fascinating and the author’s approach to be friendly and articulate.

If you are like-mindedly fascinated with dreams, and curious of their meanings and wha

This is an excellent book for Christians who believe the gifts of the Spirit and spiritual warfare are still for today. Smith received the baptism in the Spirit in 1993 and has seen angels and demons. That may put off some Christians. But for those who believe things like that are still happening, this is a great book. She concentrates on dreams and how God speaks through them. She had a very good chapter on symbols. She has advice on how to sleep well and how to remember our dreams. She also ad ...more

This is a very well written book perfect for anyone wishing to grasp an understanding of their dreams and how God speaks to us. If has a conversational feel, as though talking with a long time friend who understands you deeply. It goes beyond simple explanations with well researched information on sleep and more. This is a book to return to many times through life and one I would recommend to about anyone. I am impressed with the entire book, from the layout to the index and everything in betwee ...more

This is one of those books you don't put back on the bookshelf after reading. It includes a biblical dream dictionary for future use, but only to assist in helping interpret dreams because God is the Interpreter of our dreams. I have always believed that God created dreams specifically to communicate with all beings. Most of us refuse to be still for five seconds to listen to God and because the spirit of a man never sleeps, God patiently waits until the flesh falls asleep and speaks directly to ...more

Having read several other books on dreams and visions, I benefit from each author’s perspective as I did from Laura Harris Smith’s. Her categorization of dreams is based on her experience and interpretation of scripture, so there are some differences with other authors but her presentation is solid. I like her describing how her medical investigation of dreams and personal health crises were part of her learning process, which gives the reader greater appreciation for her insight. The book cover ...more

I won this book with Goodreads First Reads.

Seeing the Voice of God is a book about encountering God through dreams and visions. At first I was sceptical that it would be "hokey," but Smith saturates this book With both personal experience, but more importantly, Scripture! I was pleasantly surprised at this book, and it's call to grow closer to God in a way I've never done before. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to take their communication with God to the next level. It's like a

For those who dream and see visions

Laura places the context of the book within the framework of her own experience with dreaming and visions. She weaves her own dreams and visions, plus scientific research on dreaming and sleep into her chapters. Her experiences are thought-provoking, and worthy of consideration. Reminding us that everything must be thoroughly examined against the word of God, she gives cautions and guidance for determining if the voice or dream we hear or see is from God.
