The Listening Gift We have a crisis brewing in our nation today. The crisis I am speaking about is the failure on our part to really listen and hear one another. It is plaguing marriages, affecting our children, as well as our friendships. This in turn affects God's church. The Listening Gift is a book that is relevant for today. It is for those who desire better communication skills, and richer relationships. This includes our relationship with our spouse, our children, our friends, co-workers, and most importantly with our Heavenly Father. In this book, you will learn the difference between listening and hearing. You will discover how learning to take the time to really listen and hear others can change your life. You may even be used as an instrument of God to change someone else's life. With practical guidelines, this book reveals the rewards that can come from becoming someone's listening gift.
