Do you find yourself "yelling to be heard"? Do you have "Family Home Argument on Monday nights"? Do you suffer with "the awfulizer..worst possible scenario" syndrome? THEN THIS BOOK WILL HELP! A horse trainer knows that yelling and treating a horse poorly was not the best way to train it. Kevin Hinckley teaches us that husbands, and children too, will respond to a soft voice better than yelling, screaming, and threatening. Real case scenarios, thoughts from scriptures and church leaders, and WONDERFUL advice from therapist Kevin Hinckley combine to make this book a VALUABLE tool in helping you learn how to master the art of 'whispering.' There is a VERY INTERESTING section relating to the iron rod from "Lehi's Dream" and the difference between clinging and holding fast...and how one gets the fruit by falling down at the tree. "Whisper" your way into the hearts of those you love most...Including yourself! Know that the Lord truly does LOVE YOU...he will even "whisper" that to you if you will but be still and listen :) AN AMAZING BOOK!
We are more effective when we speak in a whisper.

I was expecting this book to tell me how to "control" my husband and be in charge. Thankfully, it wasn't like that. Right off the bat, it said that it's a book for women to learn to relate to men and to use our divine nature to help men achieve all the Lord intends for them. I am definitely someone who can benefit from this. This little gem was full of wonderful advice on how to be a more peaceful and calm person. I know I'm often prone to overreacting and this book was great in counsel and stories to help me get that under control. There was one story in this book that was pretty much me and my husband, which was kind of funny. I learned that "learning to hear whisperings is critical to being a whisperer." How true is that? I loved reading that the art of whispering begins with how I feel about myself. And most importantly, how does the Spirit speak to us? Usually with a whisper. We are more effective when we speak that way. All in all, a fantastic book. **I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.**
