The Listening Project tells the true story of a woman who decides to make an unusual and quirky deal with God to become a better listener. What starts out as a step-by-step business model approach to learn about listening to the Divine voice within, soon turns into a far more personal and unexpected journey of loss, grief, healing, and love. An inspiring and at times irreverent book, The Listening Project makes you laugh, cry, and think about the many opportunities we have to hear God in our daily lives, especially when life gives us hurdles too big to jump on our own. As the author shares her experiences and lessons learned, readers are encouraged to explore their own unique spiritual approach to life, the ways they listen to God, and the inherent human challenges and rewards of hearing and following Divine guidance.
In her second book, Williams (Working as One) recounts her journey to become better at listening to the divine voice within. She focuses primarily on a dark, difficult period in her life when she experienced significant loss, including the deaths of two of her friends, her horses, and her cat. Williams writes honestly and candidly about her struggles to overcome her ego and her task-oriented personality in order to turn inward and get in touch with her intuitive side. She explores how connecting with animals, observing signs in nature, and paying attention to sometimes not-so-subtle hints from God allowed her to heal, grow, and transform. Williams is at her best when ruminating on her relationship with her horses and dealing with their loss. Any horse lover or pet owner is sure to connect with her painful descriptions of saying goodbye to these faithful companions. By focusing on her struggle to process overwhelming loss, Williams encourages readers of all faith backgrounds to find solace and healing in the quest to become a better spiritual listener. (BookLife)
