Have you ever felt like your sincere, heartfelt prayers were ignored or met with silence? Do you wonder why a loving God would ever refuse to answer?
For the month of April, the LDS Living Book Club will be diving headfirst into this very personal and emotional topic by reading and studying Divine Quietness: Finding Meaning When Heaven Is Silent.

Divine Quietness explores the reasons God sometimes answers our prayers with silence, in spite of our best efforts. Through the lens of her own experience and drawing on literature from many faith traditions, Emily Robison Adams discusses new ways of thinking about faith, doubt, and divine quietness.
Whether you have been lead to believe that God is seemingly ignoring your prayers or confronting you with silence, this thoughtful new book will help you learn to rethink those assumptions underlying what it means to have faith and how to connect with God even in quietness.
