In this article, I am excited to introduce a new series based on my book Be Still My Soul: A Practical Guide to a Deeper Relationship with God.
My relationship with God is the most precious gift in my life. Over a lifetime of walking with Him, I have learned the exquisite power and beauty of prayer. God and I have taken many a long walk together down sleepy streets, through autumn-hued forests, and along sand-strewn beaches. God has kept me company as I have laughed, cried, and poured out my soul. He has spoken back to me time and again in the pages of His Word—words that have sustained me, comforted me, and guided me through every stage of life.
I did not experience this kind of close relationship with my Father overnight—not on the first day or even in the first year after becoming a Christian. It has taken years—even decades!—of seeking, devotion, and creativity in order to forge the bond we now share.
