Sarah is a deep well, and her love for people can be felt in the pages of her book, Hey God, Can We Talk? Talking to God can leave us with a sense of overwhelm, underwhelm, or even loneliness; and while Sarah acknowledges the challenges we face in learning to engage with God, she encourages us to grow in our dialogue with ourselves, God, and others. Rather than commands, monologues, or one-sided relationships, we can learn from Scripture and our personal experience how to lean into reciprocal, honest, and fulfilling relationships. Whatever your faith tradition, this book will help you on your journey, and is a great gift for friends.
