We live in a fast-paced world where technology enables us to do multiple things at once. We are constantly plugged in, persistently chasing something out of our reach. Because of this, it is difficult to take a pause because we are conditioned to keep going. We are accustomed to the world that tells us to want things, to accomplish each item on the to-do list that we have made for ourselves. However, by continually being on the go, what are we missing?
In her book, Whispered Grace, author Beth Chapman, invites her readers to take a pause. She shares her meditations on love, healing, and life. With each short musing is an invitation to reflect on their own whispers and take the time to truly savor each moment. Each musing is open-ended so that the readers can hear for themselves what life is telling them. This book helps creates a space wherein readers can introspect on what they want to tell life. The heartbeat of Whispered Grace is the conversation with life.
“Joy, love and simple awe abound in everyday objects and nature. We have but to pause and listen,” says author, Beth Chapman. By taking a moment to be still, we can allow our heart to feel more and our eyes to see with clarity. In a world where we are constantly inundated with the things that we have to do and the things that we have to have, perhaps the best gift that we can give ourselves is the gift of pause and stillness in life.
When was the last time you had a conversation with life?

Beth Chapman was born in the Deep South. At fifty-seven, the mountains of southern Colorado called her to come and listen. Beth left her degrees and work to take time to listen to her heart. With her little four-legged angel, Dibley, she wanders the mountain paths. It has been the most difficult journey. Beth often muses that we are not raised to listen to our own voice. We are not raised to simply stop and listen to silence. We are not raised to ask what we know is true. That has been her journey. At sixty now, the journey continues every morning as she realizes she has been gifted another day to live a life alive.
