Great for Helping with Sleep!

I love listening before sleep. Initially I learn & apply the proverbs to my day but soon I find that I'm asleep. Sometimes I struggle to sleep, but this usually helps and if it doesn't I don't mind so much as I'm listening to Proverbs.
It turns itself off too so I'm not playing them over and over all night .

All day listening.. ✨

This audible is truly a blessing in my life. I just want to listen to it all day, everyday til I can almost recite the living and life-changing words of the Lord unto my soul. I love this and will share its blessing to others!
The narrative was very natural and felt like a friend and I can't say that about most narrators!
Take this audible everywhere and escape into heavenly meditation in this beautiful spoken word of God ✨

An Exceptional Version of Proverbs

I pretty much loved everything about this version of Proverbs. Brian Simmons’ translation speaks to this generation with a fresh voice of wisdom. There’s worshipful music in the background, which doesn’t detract from the text (in my opinion).

Brian Simmons does an incredible job of narrating the text.
