Do you struggle to hear God’s voice? Oftentimes, we need to slow down, be still, and pay attention in order to hear the voice of God. Danielle shares three ways that God will often “whisper” us.
Snippet from the Show
Whatever is burdening you, bring it to Jesus.
How many of us say we don’t know what God is saying to us, and yet we never bother to open that big book called “God’s Word”? You know, the Bible? God truly speaks to us through Scripture and we should make time to read, reflect, and listen to it every day. I share a recent example where God “whispered” to me through Luke 24.
No, your feelings should not run your life, but they do matter! How we feel, whether we have anxiety of peace, can tell us a lot about ways God is calling us to act and change. If you don’t have peace about something, even something you are convinced is God’s will, spend some prayer time focused on it, and try to hearwhatGod is telling you through that unrest.
This is not a popular idea, but you need to make room for silence in your life. If you fill every spare moment with noise, busyness, and distraction, how will you ever hear a whisper from God in the midst of all that? Spend at least a few minutes every day in silent prayer. Sit in God’s presence and open your heart to receive whatever he wants to give you.

Megan Madden is a homeschooling mother with a passion for writing and speaking on authentic femininity and virtuous womanhood. In 2017, she began graduate studies in marriage and family at the International Theological Institute in Austria. After moving to Kraków, Poland to work with university students, Megan more personally continued her research on the complementarity of man and woman, particularly on the question of what it means to be a woman. She delved into the study of renowned Catholic writers on women such as St. Edith Stein, Gertrude von le Fort, Alice von Hildebrand, St. John Paul II, and St. Teresa of Avila.
The results were the development of Megan’s online ministry A Mother’s Lace, as well as speaking opportunities and her book with Ascension: Mary, Teach Me to Be Your Daughter.
Megan lives outside of Oxford, England with her husband, who is a lecturer in theology, and their five children.
