Hearing God’s voice can change the trajectory of your life, but discerning whether it's God's voice, your own, or something else takes effort. In Discerning the Voice of God by New York Times best-selling author, speaker, and cofounder of Going Beyond Ministries, you'll learn:
Most importantly, you'll learn how to recognize God's voice above all others so that you can walk in obedience to him and experience the abundant life he wants you to have (Rom 8:28–30)—to hear God's still, small voice amid this loud and busy world.
One way you know Priscilla Shirer can discern the voice of God is how powerfully she proclaims it. God is all over this young woman. I know of no stronger, clearer voice for our ailing culture. When Christ speaks through her, we do well to sit up straight and listen.
Beth Moore, Author and Speaker
Learning to discern the voice of God can be something many believers struggle to understand. They worry about missing God’s voice or not hearing Him at all. Priscilla’s study takes this very important spiritual discipline and makes it simple without making it commonplace. We highly recommend this as a discipleship tool. It has made a tremendous impact on the women of our church.

“Priscilla digs deep into Scripture and pulls out life-changing nuggets that bring people to a whole new level of understanding God’s Word and hearing His voice. Who wouldn’t want to hear what our Creator wants to say to us? Now we can know how to recognize it.
Pam Case, Director of Lifeway Women

As parents, you always want to make sure you’re leading your children in the right way, following God’s plan for your family. But how do you know, with certainty, where God is directing you? Priscilla Shirer’s book has really helped us grow in this area of our lives. She gives great insight into how we, as Christians, can distinguish and follow God’s call in our lives. It has drawn us closer to the Lord and helped us especially in our marriage and parenting.
Lauren and Tony Dungy, Former NFL Coach
Priscilla Shirer is one of the most gifted Bible teachers in the world today. It’s imperative that leaders understand how to discern God’s call on their life, and Priscilla lays out a biblical framework for doing just that.
