Listen Love Repeat
About the Book:
Our culture is self-obsessed – in our schedules, relationships, and especially online. (Can you say selfie?) But in this near-narcissism, people are less content than in decades past. Why? Because we forgot the joy that comes from putting others first. Doing so requires us to live alert, listening for “heart drops,” hints from those in our lives who need a helping hand or a generous dose of encouragement. Living alert lifts our own spirits, showing us that blessing others blesses us even more.
Listen, Love, Repeat offers biblical teaching and suggests doable actions that are simple, heart-tugging, sentimental, even sneaky and hilarious. This message:
• Presents scriptural examples of those who lived alert, including Jesus, who noticed those who least expected to be seen.
• Explains the role of good works for followers of Christ. They aren’t our ticket to heaven but they are our marching orders on earth.
• Gives creative ideas for showing love to friends and family, and suggests practical ways to reach out to the lonely, the marginalized, the outcast, and the odd duck. Additionally, it helps you comfort the grieving, showing what you can do when you don’t know what to say.
• Provides inspiration for blessing the “necessary people” in your life, those often-overlooked souls who help you get life done every day, and teaches you how to hug a porcupine by genuinely loving the hard-to-love.
As we scatter love, we create a safe space where we can openly share the gospel. We get to see lives changed right before our eyes. Most importantly, Listen, Love, Repeat will enable you to live a life that is full of kind deeds, not to selfishly shout, “Hey! Look at me!” but to humbly implore, “Will you look at Him?”

When I heard Karen Ehman was releasing a new book and I seen the title, I knew this book was written for me. Listen Love Repeat: Other-Centered Living In A Self-Centered World came at the time I needed it most. It seems that everyone is too busy, they are always worried about the things they need to do or want to do and fuss and complain that there is not enough hours in the day. What we need to do is slow down, breath and turn our focus on to God and showing love.
Listen, Love, Repeat has biblical teaching and also has suggestions about different actions that we can do. Giving scriptural examples of those who lived alert, explains the role of good works for followers of Christ, gives creative ideas for showing love and provides inspiration for blessing the “necessary people” in your life.
This book has taught me how to show love to those who are often overlooked and how I’m creating a safe space where I can openly share the gospel. It’s amazing to see lives changed. I can promise you one thing, this is one book you will find yourself going back to over and over again. Karen has a done it again, written another great book.
