Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author and Bible teacher Sheila Walsh unpacks the deepest longings of a woman's heart and encourages listeners to discover God's relentless pursuit of them through those very longings.

We vowed we'd never repeat the same mistakes - yet we find ourselves right where we started. What is it that keeps drawing us back into the same old traps? The fact is our longings are built from the blueprint of our needs - for protection, for love, for God - and those needs aren't going anywhere.

Sheila speaks candidly about the trials in her life, including the heartache of her first marriage, and intertwines her story with the biblical saga of King David. As both Sheila's and David's stories make clear, some cravings are misguided, but they all stem from the same hunger - and they will haunt us until that hunger is properly satisfied. If we keep reaching out to the wrong people at the wrong times in our own lives, The Longing in Me will help us understand that our cravings are not the problem; it's where they lead us that makes all the difference.

Siri is reading to me.

I feel like Siri is reading this to me. But the text of the book is awesome. I just can't listen to the computerized narrator. I wonder if it's a problem with the app. I see some others have had the same issue.

Love Sheila

I love all of Sheila's books and so appreciate her heart. I just wish she would have read the book instead of someone else. The words carry so much more weight, depth and meaning when the author reads it with their transparent emotions and experiences reflecting in their voice. 💗

Awful narrator

Absolutely the worst narrator. She sounds automated. There are much better narrators out there. I had to force myself not to be distracted by her droning voice.

Sheila's honesty challenged the mask I hide behind

The narrator seemed robotic. Sheila's story was inspiring! She shared how deep pain led her to seek God and follow Him more closely.

Read by a robot

I am sure Sheila's story must be great, but I could not get past the Siri-like narrator. Very distracting.
