Product Description

In this uplifting and readable book, JoAnn Hibbert Hamilton describes the many voices of the spirit — from the subtle, uneasy feelings that we often brush away, to those thoughts and feelings that persist until we act upon them, to the unmistakable voice of warning and guidance. She also discusses how the spirit communicates with us through good feelings as well as bad feelings, urgency and discomfort, or peace and even joy. Her examples of missed promptings are as educational as her stories of promptings heeded and their subsequent blessings.

Using true stories from her own life as well as from Church leaders and members, Sister Hamilton shows us clearly and simply how to learn to recognize promptings in our own lives. Personal Revelation: How to Recognize Promptings of the Spirit is an excellent guide for Saints of all ages who seek to live more closely to the spirit.

Wonderful and Helpful

I was surprised to see that this book doesn't have any reviews. I've had it for a couple of years and it's one of my favorites and I reread it often. It's been helpful for me to learn more about how the Spirit can speak to us and recognizing personal revelation in my life. She provides many wonderful personal experiences as well as some by prophets and other people. Each chapter is about a way that the Spirit can speak to us. This is one of my favorite books and I always loan it out to people and they always love it too!
