I KNOW GOD doesn’t only communicate in the silence. I believe God speaks to us through the whole of our life. But silence creates space for us to practice listening for God so that we may better experience God’s presence in all areas. Silence is a spiritual practice that prepares us to receive mothering as a spiritual practice. It is a practice I need help practicing.
