The writings in this book reflect the personal journey that Jerry Evans and his wife Becky have experienced over the last 30 plus years as they began developing an effective Quiet Time. “We realized that most Christians don’t spend time alone with God. We felt the need to put into writing what we have learned in our journey with Jesus.
Introduction

Quiet Time is designed to be used as a guide for having an effective, quiet time alone with God. Exactly what is a “quiet time”? It is a regular, unhurried, and uninterrupted Bible reading, prayer, worship and meditation time alone with God. It is an important journey for Christians who desire to walk with God day by day. It is an exciting journey of spiritual growth. Only through a daily walk with God will you have the spiritual health to be all He wants. In any case, done correctly, a quiet time can take you on the most exciting journey of your Christian life. You will discover spiritual insights. You will receive instruction and guidance from the Holy Spirit, and you will discover God in a more personal way than you have ever known Him before.

It is a fact that, to remain healthy, our physical bodies must receive fresh air, food, and water. Our bodies will suffer if we are deprived of these essential elements. It works the same way with our spiritual lives. If we do not regularly feed our Spiritual lives, our spiritual condition becomes weak and diseased. We become spiritually malnourished and lose our heart for the things of God. It is only through consistently spending time with the Father that we can be in good spiritual condition.

Our vitality as Christians depends upon our spiritual food. Through a quiet time with God, we gain insight to His will for us, His wisdom, and His grace as we grow in Him. A quiet time becomes a discipline, a habit—a way of life — a lifestyle!
