Winning the Battle for the Night
In our fast-paced world, we see sleep as "wasted time," or else we lie awake as anxiety, fear, or distractions run through our minds. That was never God's intent for the night. Without realizing it, we've handed this sacred time over to the enemy.
With warmth, compassion, and keen biblical insight, Faith Blatchford reveals that it's during this precious time that God imparts everything necessary for us to be equipped for the day. Without peaceful sleep at night, we are robbed mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually of the resources we need.
God created the night and the dark--and he called it good. He dwells in it. The dark does not belong to the devil, so don't let the enemy steal it from you. Here are the tools you need to take back your night, to encounter the God of rest, and to sleep peacefully the whole night through.
Includes a chapter on how to help your children overcome nightmares and fear of the dark.

Spiritual deafness is a modern Christian malady that is correctible and unnecessary. We can--in fact must--live with an ongoing dialog between ourselves and our Maker. To do otherwise leaves a life hollow. Such is the inheritance for the enemies of heaven and not the Children of God.
This book is written in such honesty, the reader finds him or her self immersed in the practicum of truth. Faith Blatchford shares her wisdom in short easily read chapters. Her writing style is authentic, her goal clear and understandable. Like most great writers, she has simplified a mystery and made it easy for the reader to activate. But most important, Faith has written a book that you can immediately put to work with hearing God's voice.
If you are not hearing His voice, this book is for you!
