wHispers, the book


Dr. Catherine Clark Kroeger, Author, Editor, Professor

whispers-coverShirley Vogel’s story is that of a spiritual pilgrimage. In her ability to find God’s work in the smallest things, her book is reminiscent of Brother Lawrence’s Practice of the Presence of God. There are many mileposts along the way, some related to tragedy and crisis, some to victory and empowerment.

At each point she shares her reflections and opportunities for her own personal growth. Through it all, Shirley’s radiant personality and faith shine through. She has much to share with others who must face the same human experiences.

Passionate to know God more intimately and accepting whatever challenges the Lord brings her way, Shirley accomplishes what she knows is impossible by herself. Without theological training, she relies on her GDI degree – God Does It! It’s simple, Shirley says, Just trust and obey, and God’s will becomes your success!

Discovering God’s unique answers to Shirley’s prayers in the midst of repeated challenges and crises is a hope filled experience that makes others yearn for a deeper relationship with Almighty God.

Shirley Vogel’s life story is a testimony of what God can do when we choose to trust Him and live out His promises. In every new challenge she perseveres with determination, knowing that God is still in control and will use Shirley in His kingdom. Read this book and be encouraged to live out your own adventure of faith and service!
