Item description for Donkeys Still Talk: Hearing God's Voice When You're Not Listening by Virelle Kidder...
Life's challenges often prove to be almost more than we can handle. Plans are derailed, dreams thwarted, hopes crushed. Or, more precisely, your son breaks his arm, you lose your job, your best friend has just become your worst enemy.
Meet your donkey-the difficult, trying people, obstacles, and situations in life that stall our plans. Looking at the story of Balaam's Ass in Numbers 22, author Virelle Kidder shows us how God still uses surprising ways of communicating His messages to us. He is speaking to us; it's our job to listen for His voice, even in the most unexpected places!

Reviews - What do customers think about Donkeys Still Talk: Hearing God's Voice When You're Not Listening?
Some good insight Dec 24, 2008
Although this book is no literary masterpiece, it offers some good insight as to how character is built into our lives by difficult circumstances and people. It's easy reading and "folksy" in its approach. A good light read, but nothing earth shattering.
Kidder's humor is the vehicle for depth and truth Nov 26, 2007
If you enjoy seeing humor in the seriousness of faith, Virelle Kidder will become a welcomed new friend. But don't let the light touch of Donkeys Still Talk fool you, Kidder's humor is the vehicle for real depth and truth. Such depth can only be delivered by someone who has lived through the trials of life and has found the secret to lasting joy. I'm recommending Donkey's Still Talk to those attending my Direction: Discernment for the Decisions of Your Life retreats and day seminars as we learn how to hear from God in the midst of the noise and clamor of life lived in the trenches.
Handling the Hardest Dec 20, 2006
This was a terrific book. It helped me to look at the difficult situations (anything I didn't want) as a time of learning. Virelle suggests focusing on what really matters (Godly perspective) versus what I want (me, me, me).
She uses her own circumstances and experiences, some were very trying, to see what the Lord has in store for her and each of us. I found this at the public library at a time when I really needed a change in my attitude and perspective. I highly recommend this book, especially if you are at place where you feel stuck. --M. Law
Good Book, Good advice Feb 7, 2005
A "donkey" can be a difficult person or an unforeseen situation that comes into our lives, often without warning. Who among us hasn't had to deal with one or two of those? We may not always appreciate these distracting and unwelcomed intrusions, but according to author Virelle Kidder, we can learn from them. In fact, sometimes the very reason these "donkeys" are in our lives might be to teach us something. Virelle Kidder is a wonderful writer, and her newest book DONKEYS STILL TALK is both enjoyable and uplifting. I would recommend it to anyone dealing with a difficult situation in his or her life.
Sure-footed Wisdom Oct 12, 2004
Because God is so personal, he speaks to us through objects we understand. Who can't relate to a wild headstrong donkey? Virelle uses the donkey, a necessity for survival in Bible times, as a symbol for the challenges and irritations braying at our door. She teaches us how to identify our beasts of burden and how to tame them by "letting God handle the herd."
Filled with scriptural illustrations and warm personal stories, Virelle Kidder's book is a must have for your bookshelf. Read it once, but you'll keep coming back over again for encouragement and insight.
