This book is full of all the tips and lessons God has taught us over the past 5 years.

Reviews on Amazon
“What can I say, this is a truly amazing book by a great author! It is clear that the author has a deep and committed relationship with God and that going diving into a life that serves him has been a real adventure with many lessons. The author shares some of these lessons and moments from his journey in a way that gently challenges and encourages the reader to begin stepping out in prayer and prophecy straight away – regardless of the setting.”
“Ian communicates in a down to earth manner. His real-life examples make it easy to understand Biblical principles in hearing God while praying for others. This is a very easy to digest book for anyone who wants to develop a spiritual ear to hear the voice of God and prophetically be able to encourage others in their walk with the Lord”
“This book is beautifully written. It is packed with scripture and organised into 7 easy to read studies. I’m looking forward to reading the next one”
“I loved the real-life stories that Ian used to explain his teachings in the book. The daily plan is detailed and gives the beginner who is trying to establish a relationship with and hear our Lord’s voice the process and instructions to do just that. Great and quick read as well. “
“I always knew in my spirit that God was talking directly to me, but in the doubt given to me by the world, my spiritual ears were not open as much as they ought to be. I’m thankful for Ian’s honest testimony and teaching. My new faith, as a fruit of reading this book, has brought me to a place where I can begin to hear my Lord more clearly. Praise God”
