Enjoy the Silence

Enjoy the Silence

Unplug to experience God's presence.

Overview

We have so much constant noise in our lives that we are often left trying to figure out how to connect with God. But once we discover the importance of slowing down long enough to create real silence and rest before God, we'll discover that we can hear from and experience him in deeper ways than we've ever known.
