SANCTUARY: Cultivating a Quiet Heart in a Noisy and Demanding World

Whether it’s the TV or radio continually playing in the background or the persistent pinging on our phones, the constant noise and frenetic pace of modern life can be overwhelming.

More than ever, we need sanctuary, not only as a refuge from the noise around us but also as a place where God’s truth can be clearly heard.

This 31-day devotional explores what it means, and what it looks like in very practical ways, to lead the “quiet life” that Paul speaks of in 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12. Readers will come to see that a quiet life doesn’t mean escaping from the world around them, but centering their hearts on Christ, so they can live with a clear focus, a quiet confidence, and a steady peace.

“One word comes to mind when I think of Denise Hughes: biblical. She loves God’s Word, knows God’s Word, and articulates God’s ways in timeless, beautiful fashion. Denise speaks as a wise and godly mentor, tackling tough questions and offering fresh insight, all at the same time.”
