About I Heard God Laugh (Hardcover)

Is Your Life Working?

Most of us are trying to put together the jigsaw puzzle we call life without a very important piece. Over time this becomes incredibly frustrating. In this extraordinary book, Matthew Kelly powerfully demonstrates that we cannot live the life we have imagined, or experience the joy we yearn for, unless we learn to tend the soul. From there, with his classic style of practical wisdom, he teaches us how to remedy this problem.

When our bodies are hungry, our stomachs growl. When our souls are hungry, we become irritable, restless, confused, overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious, discontent, and tend to focus on the things that matter least and neglect the things that matter most.

Are you taking care of your soul? Are you feeding it and nurturing it? Or are you ignoring it and neglecting it? The reality is, most people have never really been taught how to tend their souls. I Heard God Laugh will help you to do just that, and so much more.

If you ever wondered how Matthew Kelly has been able to write and speak the way he has over the past three decades, he is about to share his secret with you. As he shares what transformed his life, along with intimate details of his own journey and struggle, he teaches us how to apply the great spiritual lessons learned to our own lives.

At every turn he floods the reader with hope and demonstrates unmistakably that the best is yet to come!

I love this book!!!

By Ivannia on Friday, July 3, 2020

It has inspired me to create a daily praying routine; I couldn't put it down, and I am sharing it with my children. Thank you for this book. I will be sharing it!

Awkwardly coming home

By Kathy on Monday, June 29, 2020

Couldn’t put it down, read the whole book in one Sunday afternoon. For some time I’ve been feeling like my prayer was mindless, reciting words (though beautiful) that were not coming from my heart. There is an emoji of a head exploding that I’ve always though gross and why would someone use that but it fits my experience reading this book. Just started my 21 days and it feels awkward yet like coming home. Thank you Matthew for sharing, God bless you.

Scripture verses for meditation

By Marianne on Sunday, June 28, 2020

I liked the reflections based upon the scripture verses Matthew heard in his younger days that inspired him to do the work he currently does I am using them in my life,especially with all the COVID-19 restrictions.

Perfect

By Ron on Sunday, June 28, 2020

I am in the process of reading this book. I’ve had a daily prayer routine, this book is enhancing it. It’s taking it to the next level. Helping me see that prayer first thing in the morning is good, but praying always is better.
We need prayer now more than ever.
Thank you for listening to the Holy Spirit, we need it!

Kindness is a Superpower

By Dennis on Sunday, June 28, 2020

Still reading .. however Matthew's words service for me that .. kindness is a superpower, and that love and laughter are what makes the world go around.
Thanks .. Dennis

Open to the Word of Life?

By Douglas on Saturday, June 27, 2020

An amazing read! So blessed to receive an early copy and explore this path under Matthew's gentle and challenging guidance. Whether you are a regular at prayer, have lapsed in your commitment, or have never really tried, you'll find strong encouragement to spend time every day listening for the voice of God. Matthew's words of wisdom will help you (re)connect to the Source of all Life, offering both practical insights and inspiration. You'll want to give a copy to each person you care deeply about. What a great Christmas gift that will be!

Gread read

By Theresa on Saturday, June 27, 2020

I am 77 years old and all about knowing God personally and how to do that. It took me many years and much reading and praying to find what Matthew Kelly gives us in this book. It is a great help to get started and, hopefully, follow through a lifetime. Thank you, Matthew, for another good read to put into action.

Read in an afternoon!

By Steph on Friday, June 26, 2020

I had read I think Dynamic Catholic where Matthew shared his story about his mentor, John, encouraging him to sit in church for 10 minutes a day.
Shortly after, I started going to daily mass about 3 times a week and then just sitting quietly in the church for 10 minutes afterwards. I have done that about 2 years now before everything shut down.
Sharing that time in church did change my life. It gave me peace as I invited Jesus into my day.
Fast forward to reading I Heard God Laugh yesterday, I was reminded of how important quiet time spent with Jesus is, especially in these times of chaos.
This book can be for all Christians. It is very simple, but maybe not easy to do until it becomes a habit and a person assesses the results.
Please pick up a copy and read it - definitely worth your time to read and put into practice!

Chesterton Heard God Laugh. That is why I like his books

By Edward Duffy on Friday, June 26, 2020

Matthew had 2 key points in this book. The first key was having John reading the bible aloud to Matthew when Matthew was 15 years old and then waiting for Mathew's response to what was read Spontaneously.

The second point was the :

The 6 shifts in Prayer

First: Begin the Conversation
Second: Ask God What He Wants
Third: Give Yourself to Prayer
Fourth: Transform Everything into Prayer
Fifth: Make Yourself Available
Sixth : Just Keep Showing Up.

It is the best book on prayer I have ever read.

Awesome Book!!!!!!!!!!!

By Barbara J on Thursday, June 25, 2020

Even though I had used Matthew's prayer process cards in my Confirmation Class, I figured I was praying just fine the way I was. Well this book challenges you, and what I realized was when you do the prayer process, you have a more intimate relationship with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I still do my other prayers, but I relish my time with the Prayer Process. I also challenged my 25 year old son and was amazed after he tried it and loved it. Thank you Matthew, you are a blessing to us all. I can hear God laughing now.

I heard God laugh

By Margaret on Thursday, June 25, 2020

As always, I learned so much from Matthew's book. I am thinking more about who I am and what I can become.
Thanks you Matthew for all your inspiring works.

Great Prayer Guide

By Theresa on Thursday, June 25, 2020

I am fortunate that I have a deep spiritual life and start each day with prayer and readings. I still found this helpful and have printed his prayer guide and have added it to my routine. I have also added Mother Teresa's devotional, which came with the book. I encourage everyone to get this book! I love Matthew Kelly!!! Thanks for your ministry!

Focused - Dynamic - Simple - Real

By James on Thursday, June 25, 2020

This book came to me at the perfect time in my life. With the craziness of the world, I needed to really ramp up my prayer habits. Matthew shared his personal prayer process developed over the past 30 years. The format was understandable and I applied it to my life immediately.

He does Laugh!

By Jim on Saturday, June 20, 2020

AWESOME BOOK! Now I understand what that laughing was in the background when I prayed. It was God, and me telling Him how things needs to happen about what I was praying about. This book has helped me further my TRUE FAITH and who really has my best interests at heart. It's a book about great love too. Matthew has allowed God to be His pen. Thank you Matthew for ALL the sacrifices you've made!

Direct Hit to the Soul

By Barbara on Thursday, June 18, 2020

This book was exactly what I needed to pull me up by the boot straps. I was "doing" prayer but somehow was not truly connected to God. Matthew gives not only the motivation but the simple path to follow to make a meaningful ongoing connection to God through the Prayer Process. I could not put the book down. I started his challenge after the second day of reading. You don't want to miss this book if your life just isn't what you expected it to be.
