When you read one of the 70 stories in the book for the first time, it's recommended that you read through the entire story without stopping so you can fully enjoy it without dissecting it, analyzing it, or contemplating your own similar experiences. Once you've read the story in its entirety, use the included workbook to deepen your experience, insight, and understanding of hearing God's voice in the story by filling out the worksheets and reading the commentary for each story.
Below is a brief description of items included on each story's worksheet.
Description: Write a brief one or two sentence description of the story so you can easily jog your memory about it in the future.
Inner Struggle: Describe the inner experience of the person in the story just prior to hearing God's voice. What were they thinking or believing? What were they feeling or experiencing? This will help you to identify the "before" and "after" experience of hearing God's Voice.
Miracle Mindedness: Contemplate and describe the qualities of heart and mind present in the individual that brought about their experience of hearing God's voice in that exact moment. What were they thinking, believing, feeling, intending, or doing the moment they heard God's voice which opened them up to having that experience?
Moment of Hearing: What moment in the story did they experience "hearing God's voice," or what was happening in the story the moment they "heard God's voice?"

Notes: Write down any additional notes, ideas, or reminders that come to mind as you contemplate this story.
DavidPaul's Commentary: Before DavidPaul Doyle, the author and creator of When God Spoke to Me, ever thought about creating a workbook for it, he went through every story in the book himself and wrote down his own thoughts and insights on each of the items above. He never thought he would share his notes and comments with anyone else. He simply did it for his own benefit. As he started putting all his worksheets together, he envisioned the possibility of making this workbook available to individuals who may be studying the book on their own without the benefit of enjoying other people's insight, ideas, or experiences as part of a group. As a result, he decided to include his own personal notes in this workbook so others could benefit from his many years of hearing God's Voice himself and teaching others how to do the same. It is recommended that you fill out the worksheets on your own prior to reading DavidPaul's commentary. There is tremendous benefit to thinking about these stories on your own before soliciting other people's opinions and experiences.
