About the Book

Immerse yourself in that still place within, in which God speaks to the true self that you have been created to be. This book is more than simply information about inner stillness; it is a guide into the experience of inner stillness itself. This is the author’s journey to that place where God speaks to our spirits and calls us children. This is a call not so much to do something as much as it is a call to be who God created us to be. Through the experiences of contemplation, waiting, hope, and assurance, it is the goal of this writing that you will find rest for your soul, body, and mind in a fresh, new, and enduring way.

We all long to live from the center of an authentic self. Gene Yotka has provided an important resource for helping us identify and express a spiritual life from that center. His book is a gift.

About the Author

Gene is the pastor of First United Methodist Church of Cocoa, Florida. He holds two master’s degrees, including a master’s in divinity (MDiv) and a master’s in pastoral counseling (MAPC), both from Asbury Theological Seminary. Through his extensive spiritual counseling experience and experience in pastoral care, he has become acutely aware of the dearth of inner peace for which so many individuals long. The search for inner peace and ways to guide others into their own still place has become a passion in his life. As a husband and father of five children, he has a burning desire to help them and others to find the inner stillness that they crave. Gene lives in Florida with his wife, MaryAnn, and their daughter, Victoria, who has just graduated high school and is on her way to college. They also have four other children: Beau, Kitty, Tara, and Kurt, all out in the world and doing wonderfully. Thank the Lord.
