The Whisper Within

" Believing that God powers strange coincidences and the journey that lies ahead."


Today a dear servant of God has passed, Dr. Charles Stanley.My heart is broken yet I am smiling, thinking of him being with Jesus.

The first book I read of his was WAITING ON GOD. Through this book, Dr. Stanley taught me how to meditate, get in God’s word, wait for his direction and listen for the prompting of the Holy Spirit or as I like to call it The Whisper Within.

My life has been anything but easy. My ex became a paraplegic 20 years ago when I had two little kids.

Through waiting on God and listening for his direction, God orchestrated a life that I can’t even imagine and I’m so grateful for.

So so thankful that nightly I could watch Charles Stanley’s YouTube sermons. His soft voice gave me peace and his words of wisdom gave me daily direction.

My favorite quote of his was,”Obey God and leave all the consequences to him.”

Charles will continue to make disciples of all nations through his ongoing ministry!

Praise God! I can only imagine Jesus welcoming him at the gate and saying, “Hello Charles! My good & faithful servant !”

Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I have been single for the last twenty years raising my two beautiful children, Jake ( 26)and Tarah (25). I am a originally from Chicago but by listening to “The Whisper Within” I have recently moved to Southern California. I love to run, hike, bike, swim, and practice core yoga but have been sick for the last few years fighting Lyme disease. GOD will heal me but in the meantime, I choose to be happy and not settle for ordinary. I believe in the Fairytale, crave the butterflies, and surrender that God has the plan. Follow me on FB at The Whispers Within.
