“‘Mom, did I tell you about this shell yet?’ Her tone made it clear she was sharing a special secret. “I had asked God for a word that would represent my spiritual journey this semester. As I was walking on the beach, I looked out at the ocean and remembered living in Hawaii. Then I heard the calming command I used to hear God giving to the waves. But you know what, Mom? This time it was different.”
I leaned in, eager to hear what Rachel would say.
‘There was a new line at the end of the command. What surprised me was that the new line fit so perfectly.’
‘What was it?’
…Listen to Me.’”
