Closer Than Your Skin
by Susan D. Hill
The back cover of this book reads:
"Is God really like a father who cares about the details of our everyday lives? Then why does he often seem so far away, distant in moments when we could most use a personal touch from him?"
Author Susan Hill takes us on a journey of discovery to find tangible ways to hear God's message in today's busy world. Through difficult times in her life she has learned how to listen for God's voice and experience God's love in ways that have made her faith come alive. Through prayer, reading his Word, and desperately seeking his guidance she has experienced deep knowledge of God's will and plans for her life as a woman, a wife, and a mother.
Like the vast majority of Christians, author Susan Hill felt frustrated in her search for spiritual intimacy, unable to bridge the gap between knowing about God and personally knowing Him. Closer Than Your Skin traces her journey beyond the trappings of faith to an everyday companionship with God.
Through stories of her awe-inspiring experiences, Hill assures readers that knowing God is more than spiritual rhetoric; it’s a genuine, tangible reality when our eyes are open to his presence. With undeniable honesty, she vividly captures the experience of genuine intimacy with the Creator and reveals how to move beyond obstacles that stand in the way.
Readers will discover that divine encounters aren’t reserved for moments of crisis or the select few. Through these unforgettable insights and the interactive study guide, they will find that God is standing at the door, knocking, asking to be allowed in.
