The Well: The Art of Drawing Out Authentic Conversation
Does your spouse refuse to hear? Do your children stare without comprehending? Does your parent or boss habitually raise objections to your good ideas?

From Isolated to Influence
“He’s not listening,” Cathy fumed, as the civic leader towered over her. She went home and “plopped open” her Bible.
There’s got to be something here about people who don’t listen. She found over 40 ways Jesus communicated.
Plus, she gained new respect for one of the most fascinating women in scripture. Jesus, the Master Communicator, engaged the woman at the well in just one conversation. She immediately zipped from lonely to leadership. We can, too!

Truth with a Texas twang spoken here!
The Well is written by Cathy Primer Krafve. This is the first time I have read anything by this author. We live in a world where everyone thinks that their opinion is the only one that matters. I know that I am quick to say things that pop in my head and not think of the hurt, damage or the results of saying those things.
The author uses the story of Jesus and the Samaritan woman at the well to unpack what an authentic conversation should look like. We know the story where Jesus asks for a drink. The woman points out - You are a Jew, and I a Samaritan - we don't associate with each other. How many times do we choose not to converse with others that are different? Or those that have hurt us or said hurtful things.
The author takes her personal experience and uses Bible Verses to unpack her points. There was a few times where I felt she was rushing through her key points - and a few times where I was not sure what the message was supposed to be. This book is divided into twelve chapters. The chapters are a nice blend of personal account and Biblical Truth. The author you can tell writes from her heart.
This would make a good women's study - or even one for couples. I know it encouraged me to listen to my husband one on one instead of doing 500 things while listening.
I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit Blogging Program - all thoughts are my own.
