He Speaks to You is the perfect daily reflection book for the young woman who:
- Yearns to understand herself better
- Questions if God can really love her
- Desires to follow Jesus in her daily life
- Wonders what role she can serve in God’s Kingdom
- Ponders the meaning of suffering in her life
Each month has its own theme and each day’s reflection begins with Jesus speaking directly to the young woman’s heart—words that console, even as they challenge—followed by a short Scripture passage, words of wisdom from those who’ve walked the journey toward Christ, a “To Do” section for those who prefer some practical activity (the Marthas!), and a “To Journal” section for those who prefer to contemplate and write (the Marys!).
The Logos Bible Software edition of He Speaks to You is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and journey with Jesus. All Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original language texts, and key concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about relationships, God’s plan, and more.
- Ideal for Catholic women ages 20–30
- Authored by a Sister who for over 20 years has accompanied young women as they seek to know God’s plan for them
- Ideal for youth ministers, young adult groups, and retreats
- Includes a variety of activities that can appeal to various reader preferences
Praise for the Print Edition
The voice of Jesus jumps off the pages in He Speaks to You. Each topic is relevant to the questions so many women ask themselves today. Who am I? Can I truly be worthy of God’s love? How can I discern where he is calling me in life? What role can I serve in his Kingdom? Deeply saturated in Scripture and truth, filled with words of wisdom of those who’ve walked the journey toward Christ, and including practical application, this book has the ability to transform any woman’s prayer life.

I love how this book helps me get to know the Person of Jesus Christ, the love and mercy of God, every day for a whole year! In fact, when I started looking at January, I thought, ‘Wow, I want to start the January theme right now in the summer!’ There is just a taste each day, but each taste is so powerful!

If you are a ‘do-er,’ there are daily practices. If you are more contemplative, this book is chock-full of words of wisdom to think about. If you are a writer, this book gives you terrific starting points for your journal entries. The book can be used topically or sequentially.
