Journaling facilitates this heart-to-heart communion—it is simply listening to each other's heart and writing it down.Journaling helps you hear God's voice. God is speaking to you most of the time. Often you do not differentiate His voice from your own thoughts and therefore do not realize you are actually hearing God's voice. If you can learn to clearly discern His voice speaking within you, you have found the font of intimacy—the heart of God speaking to you."
Author: Linda Boone

It was a discovery of immense value to the good of dwarfkind and, as so often happens with such discoveries, almost immediately led to a war."And afterwards there were two kinds of dwarf," said Cheery sadly.

Therefore, the probability of conversion is much higher if the cult is able to gain control of the individual's environment and communication channels."
Author: Testy McTesterson
