About the Book:

Sometimes we can pray and pray for answer in which we need to act on and that answer never seem to come. But God has a way of getting His point across in one way or another, sometimes that answer can come in the form of a dream or vision. I know that my husband specifically has had God speak to him this way on many occassions.
His call to become a minister was first revealed to him through a series of dreams. Just to be verbally confirmed through several different people and situations. The author has explained in her book Seeing the Voice of God, that many times God will speak to us in this way. It maybe that perhaps during the hustle and bustle of life we are so count up in the here and now so much so that we can't hear Him speak to our spirit. So He will choose to reveal His thoughts in another way.
The author also refers back to scripture to show other dreams that were realized to be those thoughts of God's conveyed to others throughout the Bible. After each chapter is a prayer to help aide in this quest for true and real answers to those items you seek from Him as well as thoughts to take with you to ponder on.
