This is a good 31 day exploration of how God speaks to us. Randle helps us recognize the various ways God speaks, how to identify and overcome barriers to hearing and obeying God, and how we can respond to what God is telling us. I like the interactive nature of the book with places for readers to respond.
Randle shares many of her own experiences to illustrate her teaching. She has incorporated a lesson and a challenge in each of the daily readings, as well as practices for us to complete. I like that she encourages us to have a buddy with whom we can interact as we work through the book. I like that she reminds us recognizing and correctly following God's voice is a process and we will probably make mistakes along the way. I like her extra suggestions at the end of the book, such as when we really missed it or when God seems silent.
Randle believes all the gifts of the Holy Spirit are available to us today. She believes in miracles and spiritual warfare. Her book may be more appreciated by Charismatic Christians but should not be ignored by any Christian.
This is a good book for new Christians as it includes good teaching and exercises on hearing from God. Seasoned Christians may not find anything new in this book but it would serve as a good refresher course.

My rating: 4/5 stars.
