Silent Savior was a nice nonfiction read. It it encouraging for those who are discouraged. I liked the part of the book that mentioned taking time to slow down to spend time with God and not be so busy...I think that is definitely true and something most people struggle with.

I loved the "down to earth" writing style and insightfulness of this author. She understands that hearing God's voice can be challenging in our busy complicated lives, but we must keep pressing on even when we can't hear Him. It is important to keep the faith, keep looking for God at work in our lives, and keep "paying attention" to what is going on around us. God is with us even when we don't feel like He is. This is a book I intend to read over again. I was very encouraged by it.

One of my all-time favorite non-fiction books. It was one of those books that I had to get my own copy of so I could highlight until my heart was content.

It's really making me realise allot, and not feel so frustrated with my faith. I recommend it to anyone who's having a hard time 'hearing' God.
