In describing ways of listening to God, Meyer lists many ways in which God speaks to us. Many are ways that we might think of readily, such as through the Bible and prayer. But she has a much longer list of ways that God makes God's desires known to us, from dreams and visions to the wise counsel of others, and does not fail to mention the world around us as a communicator of God's will.
Obedience is the visible sign that we hear, love and trust God, and Meyer has a number of insights for Christians who are long on facts but short on respecting what God requires. In fact, it is in this area that Meyer's work shines. For example, there is an excellent section on forgiveness. She says, "A woman once share with me that she asked God to give her direction concerning what God wanted her to do.

Meyer combines points from her sermons. Her goal is to show Christians how to hear from God, what to expect, and the blessings in so. She talks about hearing from God in various ways, including one's thoughts, the words of others, and even dreams, giving various examples throughout the book.
Anyone looking to be a better person in their walk with God should pick up all Joyce Myer's books. Meyer speaks to men and woman in all walks of life. I once heard Queen Latifia--of music and movie fame--mention on TV that she was reading one of Meyer's books for personal improvement. How cool is that!
The author narrates the audio version. Although not as dramatic as in her meetings, she still gets all her points across.
