Helping Kids Hear the Voice of God

Hearing God's Voice

Children have questions about everything around them. This includes how and why they were created and how to hear the voice of God. To help young readers along their faith journey, Mark Batterson teamed up with his daughter Summer to write the book God Speaks in Whispers. Mark wrote Whisper: How to Hear the Voice of God for adults and he decided to get Summers help in writing a similar book geared towards children. During Covid-19 children see their parent's concerns and might be afraid and in need of reassurance. Knowing that God cares about their needs and is waiting to comfort them, makes all the difference. This book helps bring them peace by showing them that God is all around them, even in the gentle whispers. 

“I loved reading books to Summer when she was a little girl. Writing one together was even more fun!” Batterson says. “As a parent, there is no greater privilege or responsibility than helping our kids hear the voice of God. That is our hope, our prayer for God Speaks in Whispers.”

About Mark

Mark was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and grew up in Naperville, Illinois. He was just 5 years old when his parents took him to see a movie made through Billy Graham’s ministry, called the Hiding Place. The film significantly impacted Mark and he gave his life to God. When he turned 19 years old, he realized that he had been asking Jesus to follow him instead of following Jesus. 

Mark went to the University of Chicago on scholarship playing basketball and majoring in pre-law. After a prayer walk through a cow pasture, he felt called to full-time ministry and ended up at Central Bible College in Springfield, Missouri. Mark also holds a Doctor of Ministry from Regent University. He is the author of 17 books including his first published title, In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day and The Circle Maker, a New York Times Bestseller.

He and his wife Lora, moved to Washington, DC in 1994 to direct an inner-city ministry. He has served as Lead Pastor of National Community Church since 1996. Under his leadership, NCC has grown from a core group of 19 people to 1 church with 7 locations.
