CAROL STREAM, Ill., Oct. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- The October issue of the Kyria digizine, available today, underscores the importance of silence and solitude to connect with God in today's hectic world.

Editor Ginger Kolbaba says, "This month's issue of the Kyria digizine is on the spiritual discipline of silence and solitude--the practice of regularly taking time alone to be still and hear God's voice as he speaks wisdom and direction into our lives. We want this issue to help women see the importance of and find ways to incorporate times of silence and solitude."

Featured is an interview with Brenda Jank, personal retreat director, who says that your life and faith depend on the practice of silence and solitude. "Jesus loved silence and solitude and retreated regularly to refuel and refresh himself, so it becomes a model for our lives."

A portion of the Kyria digizine is free access and open to everyone. The October issue features the following articles:
