The Voice of the Soul is a masterful recounting of one person’s spiritual awakening and evolution. Like Walsch in ‘Conversations with God,’ Pennington has tapped into the higher power with monumental grace and intelligence. She has transcribed and made understandable the voice of the soul in a lyrical, joyfully seductive language that is instantly recognizable to anyone who genuinely seeks understanding of what truly lies within each of us. Like Fritjof Capra in ‘The Tao of Physics,’ but in a different context, Pennington provides compelling evidence that the presumably ephemeral 'soul' may well be credibly explained through the language of modern physics. But unlike anything else you’ve ever read, this book can help lead you to your own truth. And that is the highest and best purpose to which any work can aspire.
Christian Allman, author and publisher
A heartwarming journey of awakening, this book is an intriguing account of how the soul guides the personality to experience fulfillment with the deepest self–the God-self. There is profound simplicity and bare honesty to Judith’s mystical adventure that invites us to ponder our own path to greater self-awareness... Judith’s dance with the divine is a daring and pioneering template for healing and renewal.
Keith Varnum, author of Inner Coach, Outer Power, international workshop leader
This book absolutely amazed me. You wrote ten years before "The Secret" and "What the Bleep," and everything those people taught is right there in your book. Your writing style makes that
esoteric and scientific information so much more understandable. I've been meditating for 45 years. You described my most moving experiences and explained how and why they happened. I have never
tried meditative writing or dream study before, but will certainly do so now.

This is a book you should run, not walk, to read...If you have time to read only one book, let it be 'The Voice of the Soul.' Judith Pennington, who also gives us the companion CD of guided meditations, 'The Illuminated Door,' has written an inspiring pathway to the wisdom and love waiting to be heard within all of us!
Richard Fuller, Metaphysical Reviews
Like an eagle soaring higher and higher, expertly utilizing currents of air, you will enjoy a dramatic and transformational adventure in this book. Go with Judith on illuminating trips to Medjugorje, Findhorn and the isle of Iona...This is exceptional help for becoming aware of and understanding your Soul’s voice within, ‘a whisper that never fails you and never falters.’ The author reveals new perspectives on how thought and experience resonance ‘splits into harmonic tones of the musical scale.’ Noteworthy word harmonics for enhanced spiritual growth, reality creation, and fulfillment.
Bernie P. Nelson, senior editor, Mindquest and Lightword Publishing
...beautiful, profound writings that awaken and guide readers to the wisdom of their own souls. An unforgettable, life-changing read!
Leading Edge Review
The ultimate fear factor is that we are unloved and unlovable. Judith explodes this myth and reveals the intrinsic and extrinsic beauty of a loving God who reaches for us with an outstretched hand and invites us to dance. Like a skilled musician, she finds just the right notes from science, metaphysical principles and her own life story to sound a musical chord--a vibration--that resonates with faith, hope and love...In her struggle, we recognize our own dance. Whether we are dancing in joy and hope, in faith and assurance, or in the slow steps of anguish and doubt, God is a partner who waits patiently for us to hear the voice of the soul.
Cassandra Fedrick, editor and publisher of Iris Magazine
Out of her own personal challenges, Judith Pennington has written a guide for the spiritually perplexed. Beneath the tragedies of life, there is a movement of grace that gives us insights, guidance, and healing when we most need it. Ms. Pennington's book is a wonderful resource for those who are struggling to find divine guidance in their lives. Her book reminds us that even in the darkness, Divine light shines and that God will make a way when we cannot see one lying ahead of us.

I read your story and found it compelling. I loved how you shared from your vulnerability, took the reader through the drama of your life and showed how Spirit is always waiting to express through us if we are awake and listening.
Rev. Pat Bessey, Unity minister
I just loved your book. It’s such a forthright and honest journey. It shows people that no matter what their journey is, it’s no use holding on to the past. I think it very clearly says that and how, through all our difficulties, we have a guiding North Star pulling us toward the spiritual horizon–and that we all have one! Your book really takes people out of ideas of unworthiness and religious damnation to the essence of what is.
Mark Stupka, healer and owner of The Center for Natural Healing, Baton Rouge
I’m about halfway through your book and it’s probably the best book I’ve read in years. Seriously. A truly life-changing book. It is so wonderful to read about a journey so similar to my own. I’m devouring your book like I’ve been in the desert for days and have only just found water to drink. You have written the most marvelous work! Thank you for it. It is just what I needed at just the right time.
Katharine C. Giovanni, author and teacher
Reading The Voice of the Soul opened the door to God for me: it helped me feel the beauty and love of God, where before I saw only blame and desolation. It helped me see beyond myself to the God inside me and put me on a path that is filled with faith and hope.
Jody Dreher, college student and mother
During the time I read your book, I was going through a challenging few weeks with my family and was amazed by the synchronicity between your book and my life. When I was feeling conflict with one person, the writings would speak of forgiveness. Each day, my support came from this book and, as my heart opened, its teachings were very clear to me. Now, after reading it from cover to cover, I just flip to a page for guidance. Always, I find peace.
Heather Provenza, yoga instructor, seeker of truth
A friend of mine bought your book, and when she came over on a Sunday night told me she had been reading it all afternoon and couldn’t put it down. I bought a copy on Monday morning and feel the same way. It is a wonderful book. It helped me so much, since my family is going through some of the same trials. I want to thank you for writing such a wonderful, helpful book so that we may all benefit from the wisdom you have gathered...Please let me know when your next book is published.
Nina Daye, banker
What a wonderful book. Thanks so much for writing it. It was the perfect mixture of science and spirituality that I so desperately wanted. It certainly filled a void for my path. I realize how much courage it took to write it, so let me congratulate you and say thanks for giving the world such a gift. May you be filled with clarity and inspiration on the publication of your second and third books.
Bert Fife, entrepreneur, author and marketing consultant
The 'writings' are beautiful messages of love, patience and peace...All in all, this is a beautiful experience with a message of hope, and the open-mindedness with which it is written has given me answers that I can hold dear and pass on. Thank you, Ms. Pennington, from the bottom of my heart.
Rita Malone, respiratory therapist, poet and writer for imaaginethat.com
In The Voice of the Soul, Judith Pennington invites the reader to travel with her through her struggles and challenges as she awakens to her spiritual self. Her language is so clear and vivid, the reader is made to feel a partner with her on her arduous journey to awareness.
Don't be surprised if, no matter your religion or spiritual background, the meditative writings reinforce what you know, affirm what you believe, validate what you suspect and answer many of your questions about the nature of the Divine.
The format of the book is truly unique, unlike any book to the left of it or right of it on the bookstore shelf.
Jeanie Barnett, singer, wife and mother
The other day I was in a spiritually ‘down’ place. I went outside and opened up your book. The page I opened to was just what I needed. It spoke to me. God spoke to me through this book.
Tina McFadden, psych technician, Red River Treatment Center
My sister gave me a copy of your book just before you moved to Pennsylvania. It is wonderful and has meant a lot to me personally for several reasons. Recently, a spiritual teacher told me about another special book and said that when I had a concern I could open this book at random and the passage would address my concern. I have found the same thing to be true of the last section of your book. I feel myself drawn to it (often when I am struggling), and the text speaks to my feelings so directly that it is astounding. Thank you.
Laura Gaddy East, schoolteacher, instruction specialist
Your book really held my interest. It’s an adjunct, a companion, to my own spiritual journey and growth. I loved your honesty and the reminder that in the middle of all this chaos that is our lives, there’s this redeeming spirit. There’s something great about finding another human being doing what you’re doing. You write a compelling story.
Mark Courtman, health food store owner, workshop leader, healer
I received your book a day or so before I made a huge transition. Never before has a book been so timely in my life! It still gives me strength every time I pick it up. It is definitely one of the best and most beautiful books I’ve ever read, and it’s handy to have around. When I turn to the meditative writings, I find exactly the lesson I need. I loaned ‘Voice of the Soul’ to a neighbor whose husband of 30 years died earlier this year, and it was a great help to her, too.
Alan Laurie, graphic artist & fine arts painter, singer, actor
Thank you for your marvelous book! It reinforced thoughts I had perceived myself and helped dissolve my fears. My life was beginning a new phase and your book called to me from a friend’s bookshelf. Thank you for sharing your life and thoughts with the world – I know you have and will continue to be blessed for stepping out and telling the truth.
I have been slowly reading your book, partly because I don’t want it to end. It always has the exact wisdom I need to hear at the moment. I have certainly read a zillion other books which say some of the same things, but for some reason this book is like salve to my heart and soul. It is very gentle, but really uplifting, with the strength of truth coming through every page. Thank you for your powerful book.
