“At the start of Lent 2020, I felt prompted to write a letter from God every day for forty days,” explains Ruth.

Weeks later all radio staff at UCB were required to go into self-isolation because one of their guests had tested positive for COVID-19.

She added: “I therefore found myself starting this daily letter from God just as the Corona virus was taking hold across much of Europe. Through all the panic, uncertainty and fear the one thing I looked forward to, was being still at the start of the day and listening for what God wanted to say.”

God Speaks, which is published by Authentic Media and comes out today Friday September 24, has already had a great response among some key leaders and influencers.

‘This is a beautiful book full of hope and love from God. The perfect gift for anyone who is struggling in their life. If you enjoy writing a journal, this book provides a wonderful starting point for anyone who wants God to help them write their inner thoughts and grow in their faith.’

Rosemary Conley CBE – Businesswoman, Author and Broadcaster 

‘Ruth’s passion for God and people is evident to all who have the honour to know her…this book encapsulates just that. Her words will draw you nearer to God and make you want to go deeper into his presence’

Zoe Clark-Coates MBE – Charity Founder, Bestselling Author and TV Presenter

Ruth concluded: “God Speaks goes back even further though. It was birthed out of a journey of brokenness, surrender and obedience and I’m eager to see what God continues to do in and through me.”
