Book Review: Listen, Love, Repeat

by Karen Ehman

In this six-session video Bible study, Karen Ehman, New York Times bestselling author of Keep it Shut, helps you rediscover the life-changing joy that comes from putting others first. In a culture that tells us a me-first, you-second way of living is the key to happiness, Ehman explains that the key to moving forward in almost every facet of your life is to embrace backward living.

Becoming a person who thinks about others first takes effort. It requires you to live alert. To be on the lookout in conversations for “heart drops”—hints of kindness you might grant to the person right in front of you, right where they are.

But it is worth it.

Listen, Love, Repeat gives you both the encouragement and practical, daily ways you can reach out to others with both planned and random acts of kindness. Topics include loving your family and friends, encouraging coworkers, reaching out to the lonely, blessing the “necessary people” who help you get life done every day but often go unnoticed, and many others who could use an act of thoughtfulness. An additional focus on modeling for your children a lifestyle that listens and loves is accompanied by doable ideas for you and for your family.

My thoughts:
Out of all the OBS I have down through Proverbs31 Ministries, this was not my all time favorite, however I did like it and learned a lot from it. But I did love the way it pointed to the Bible and the way God wants us to act so people can see the Gospel through us. I also loved the additional bible study component they added to the study this time around.
It talks about "heart drops" and I really enjoyed this concept and it convicted to me to start paying more attention to the people around me and start serving those. Serving where you are!
