Mary has been called the "mother of listening." She didn't just hear the Word; she knew how to hear it in light of her own relationships, circumstances, and habits and then let it transform her. After years of study, best-selling author Sonja Corbitt recognized that the "mother of listening" was presenting a model of prayer that has the power to revolutionize your life of prayer.
Springing from the Annunciation, Sonja will show you how to use the Blessed Mother as the ultimate prayer guide in a powerful "listening" practice: L - Listen, O - observe, V - verbalize, E - entrust. Sonja draws from vivid biblical texts such as Hannah's song, the Psalms, and the Annunciation to reveal how to surrender to the Spirit and pray the Scriptures as Mary and Jesus did.
