• Make a short list of what silences your voice.
• Are there people, expectations, old stories, or broken narratives that need to be shushed so that you can listen to what God is saying about you? If so, list them.
• Commit these lists to prayer, ask God to help you hear his voice.
• Pray, too, that God would bring you people who can help you hear and develop your true voice.
