"Did you say something?"


We've all been there. That moment when we realize we weren't listening. It can be embarrassing: caught zoned out in a meeting or holding up the line checking a text. Or it can be hurtful: missing a child's important question or inattentive to the needs of an aging parent.

Fortunately, listening is a skill that we can learn, and with practice one that can change our personal and professional relationships. Take a moment now and take this fun, 60 second quiz to find out just how well you listen.

Are you a good listener? Could you use some practice? In the new book Tuned In: The Power of Pressing Pause and Listening, relationship experts Art and Laraine Bennett offer advice, techniques, and practical suggestions for shutting out the distractions and becoming a better listener. Using real life situations and reflections from Scripture, Tuned In can help you improve all your relationships with the art of listening.
