You probably heard the expression “God’s coincidences” when you read Teresa’s latest book, “Listening for God: Discovering the Incredible Ways God Speaks to us.” This is the book, of course that inspired the “Listening for God Conference,” the virtual conference that takes place April 16, 17 and 18.

She speaks of God coincidences as those experiences that give us the chills or cause us to do a doubletake, those moments when our circumstances are just too coincidental to be a mere “coincidence.” That’s God calling us, talking to us.

And you will hear 50+ well-known media personalities and authors talk of their Godincidences, how and when and where and through whom God called to them, spoke to them.

And doubtless, their stories, their testimonies will make you remember such a moment, a person, an instance, an event in your life when you really needed God and He spoke to you, He was there for you

I have a story that will surprise you in Teresa’s book, and I appear at the conference this weekend as well, so be sure to tune in!

I spoke of this conference yesterday and will add more info tomorrow, the day it starts. In the meantime, you can register here: Listening For God VIRTUAL Conference (

By the way, in addition to listening to the speakers live and on demand, there will be three panel discussions:



Here is what Teresa wrote today to her friends, fans and conference registrants (current and future):

Pope Francis Insists “Getting Closer to God Starts With ‘Listening for God'”

Brothers and sisters, I see the words of the Pope this week, as another “Godincidence.” Now I realize the Pope has no idea about our upcoming virtual conference, but the Holy Spirit does. And I don’t think it is a mere coincidence that the Pope is encouraging us, through the example of my patron and favorite saint, St. Teresa of Avila, that it all begins by listening.

In his letter to the Bishop of Avila, as the diocese and the universal Church marks the 50th anniversary of St. Teresa of Avila being named a Doctor of the Church, the Pope stresses that in order to get with the God program we need to be great listeners.

“In order for our society to become increasingly human, and we can all live in the fraternity that comes from Father, it is a whole program to ‘listen to His invitation to enter us’ to find the Lord and thus to testify that “only God is enough.”

If you want to learn more about truly listening to and for God in your life, I hope you’ll join me and more than 50 speakers for our Listening for God Virtual Conference. Perhaps by attending this online event, we will also learn to be more like the great mystic, and as the Pope also said, “move heaven to earth” and make our lives a true dwelling place for God.
