Since June of 2009, God has been providing wonderful inspiration to Elmer Laydon so that he may write The Whisper of God.
The Whisper of God is a motivational exploration of how keeping God in our lives will make our lives more fulfilling.
During this time, The Whisper of God has been getting some incredible feedback from the members of our community.
Many people have written to Elmer asking for advise on issues they may be having in their lives. The issues that people have written about range from those feeling abandoned by God or their family and friends, matters related to grief, forgiveness, and self-worth.
Through prayerful contemplation and with a strong basis in the written word of God, Elmer has helped many renew and strengthen their relationship with God.
Regarding the overwhelming positive response to The Whisper of God, Elmer has said: “I am in awe of the inspiration that God has given to me so that I may spread His word and have a positive impact on the lives of others. I pray that God continues to bless me and all of the members of our community and together we can continue to become closer to God and fulfilling the purpose He has for us while we spend our time here on earth.”

Life has been quite difficult, in several ways, for me the past few years. I have experienced much loss, as God has taken some of the most important people in my life home, to be with Him. Although it has been very trying, I have found that my relationship with God has become stronger. I’m not exactly where I would like to be, yet I feel His presence from time to time, very strongly. While I still struggle sometimes, your messages encourage me, and give me inspiration daily, to look at things in a new light. I do my best to share your thoughts with my friends, as well. God bless you for sharing, and for the Whisper of God! Have a wonderful day!” – Tina G.

Bless you in all you do.” – Jan M.
