We live in a world of noise where everyone is so quick to speak. When we slow down and give someone our full attention, we offer them a safe place to be fully heard and accepted. Hear's the Thing is a story about what is possible when someone is brave enough to listen to others... and, ultimately, themselves without judgement. For Cody Alan, one of country music's most famous on-air radio and TV personalities, listening to other people has always been a crucial part of his role. It was by fostering his ability to hear others that he discovered the person he most needed to listen to was himself. Listening ultimately led him on a journey of self-discovery where he found the courage to come out as gay, the openness to question spiritually, and the strength to explore a new definition of parenting and family. In his debut memoir, Hear's the Thing, Cody shares some of the many lessons he's learned along the way such as: How to actively listen with empathy and without judgment Why a willingness to "let people in" better equips you to receive from others How genuine attentiveness can help you build healthier and deeper relationships The art of listening is often lost but Cody's story will inspire you to hear that inner voice that is leading you to a deeper connection with yourself and the people around you.
