June 1, 2010 I published the last issue (at least for a while) of Girl Talk my teen girl magazine. Since this blog was originally designed for the purpose of publishing weekly devotions for the magazine and later the magazine itself I decided to create another blog that isn’t connected to Girl Talk.

I’ll probably still publish book reviews or other items here now and again but you’ll more often find me at Trusting Him with Today. I hope you’ll stop by

Talker or Listener?

Have you ever been in a conversation where the other person talked, talked, talked and you just listened? You waited patiently until they were finished hoping to be able to put in your five cents but when they were finished so was the conversation.

Sometimes when we have a captive audience it's easy to just talk about what's going on in our world without giving the other person an opportunity to contribute. But let's try to remember everyone has a story to tell and everyone wants to be heard. So I challenge you for the next week, if you're the talker encourage your friend to talk, you may be surprised at what she has to say. Also, if you're the listener take an active role in the conversation. Let your voice be heard.

A conversation is so much more sweeter when both parties participate, after all isn't that what friendship is a all about?
