Overview

One night after saying prayers, a four year old little girl asked her Grandmother a very important question. She wanted to know why she had to do all the talking to God and God never talked to her. Surprised at the question, her Grandmother gave a rather short and inadequate answer. She said sometimes after we talk to God we have to be quiet and �listen� to Him. When we listen, we get ideas and thoughts from Him that we have never thought of before.

When we tell God we �love Him�, we need time to picture Him in our mind that He is telling us, �He loves us too�, just like when we tell our Mommy or Daddy that we love them, they always respond that they love us too. Later, the Grandmother thought she had to take more time to explain to her Granddaughter the many ways that God actually talks to us.

She thought she would sit down and write examples of how lovingly God talks to us and this might help answer that very important question many people think about.

About the Author

Joan Reuter grew up on the south side of Chicago and went to Mercy High School, Chicago Teachers College (CTC) and Chicago State University. She became a teacher in the Chicago Public Schools. After graduating from CTC, she married her sweetheart, Bob Parro. They were blessed with many beautiful children and had 16 wonderful grandchildren. One of her granddaughters was Katelyn who would come and stay a few days with her occasionally. One night, after saying prayers, Katelyn asked her Grandma a very important question. She wanted to know why she had to do all the talking to God and God never talked to her.

Surprised at the question, Joan gave a rather short and inadequate answer. She said sometimes after we talk to God we have to be quiet and �listen� to Him. Later, Joan thought she had to take more time to explain to Katelyn the many ways that God actually talks to us. She began to think perhaps if she sat down and wrote examples of how lovingly God talks to us, it would help to answer that very important question many people think about. A very short of a time later a terrible tragedy struck. Both Katelyn and her loving Mommy were in an automobile accident. The family was so devastated at this loss, all were in shock for some time. As time passed, Joan thought more and more about the examples she wanted to write for Katelyn. She wanted something to remember her with and share with the family. So Joan wrote, �God Talks to Me!� and sent it to several publishers. After many months, I received a note that my book was rejected. Joan did not pursue getting it published and had become involved with other things.

Joan now lives in Oceanside, CA. and is retired from 25 years of teaching in Chicago. She is busy with conservative politics, a volunteer with the Veterans Association of North County, and her children, grandchildren and now great grandchildren. She is grateful to the dear Lord for the love and blessings He has bestowed on her and her family.
