Publisher's Summary

Pray, Decide, and Don't Worry: Five Steps to Discerning God's Will equips Catholics with a clear five-step discernment process for navigating what St. Ignatius of Loyola calls the movements of the soul, the deeper realities that clue Catholics into what God is doing deep within their hearts, and where he is leading them.

Drawing from the rich tradition of the church and powerful insights from the saints and the Bible, this invaluable resource teaches Catholics how to recognize God's voice, discern spirits, and know which vocation God is calling them to. It will also show you that it is possible to be in the waiting yet fully joyfully alive at the same time. 

After listening to this book and following this five-step discernment process, Catholics can be at peace with their decision, knowing that they have truly discerned God's will.

Pray, Decide, and Don't Worry includes:

  • Questions Catholics should ask themselves when discerning God's will.
  • Teachings from St. Ignatius rules for discernment. 
  • Fr. Mike Schmitz's "four doors discernment" method.
  • Testimonies from a married couple and a priest.
  • Prayers to recite during times of discernment.
  • Motivation for reflections, thoughts, and inspirations along the way.

In this book, Catholics will learn:

  • How to know if a desire in their heart is truly from God.
  • What consolation and desolation are and how to fight desolation.
  • What to do when they receive a sign and don't know what it means.
  • And so much more!

practical and "easy" steps to help discernment

This is the first time I went through this book, not realizing it had moments where you should pause and answer questions or discern a question they were asking. Being that I am at work, I just let the book run all of the way through. I heard a lot of really great ways to help me discern where God wants me to be, in His plan for me. Almost being 50, I've led my life, my way. now I need to sit, listen or read this book and take the time to properly stop and contemplate when necessary. Great book, can't wait to go back through it while being still and quiet and listening to what God has to say.

Really helped make a timely decision

This book came right in time as I needed to discern whether a job change was what God was calling me to do. Very practical advice. Not sure if there is a cheat sheet or companion guide as a PDF with this Audible to refer back to? If so, could someone inform me how to access it? Overall, very informative, practical and succinct. The audio performance was great too by all speakers. Thank you and God bless!!
