Advice for Working Moms Audiobook

Advice for Working Moms

Author: Harvard Business Review Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: May 2021

Your kid gets sick, so you leave work early-again. You're an expert at driving the carpool line and setting up for the morning meeting. You missed out on another stretch assignment because you don't have time. It's assumed you'll bake the treats for the fundraiser-and man the table. As a working mother you often draw the short straw. You carry most of the burden of caregiving and household chores-and your career suffers because of it. Bosses and coworkers assume that since you're focused on your family, you don't prioritize work, and they give crucial opportunities to those around you. Advice for Working Moms can help you alleviate this stress. Drawing on the wisdom of experts and parents alike, it will help you strike the right balance between family and work, all while navigating the long-standing bias against mothers and, more broadly, women in the workforce. You'll learn to: establish the boundaries you need at home and at work; negotiate flextime, time off, and maternity leave; facilitate your return to work after taking time off for caregiving; combat the 'motherhood penalty'; negotiate a more equal division of labor at home with your partner; and say no to 'office housework' and other menial tasks at work.

Nine Days in Heaven: A True Story Audiobook

Nine Days in Heaven: A True Story

Author: Dennis Prince, Nolene Prince Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: May 2021

Just over one hundred fifty years ago, in Berlin, New York, twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis suddenly fell into an unconscious state, from which neither family nor physician could arouse her. When she finally regained consciousness, she described with almost supernatural perception how angels had escorted her spirit to Heaven and Hell. Her vision made her the talk of the community and a legend for generations to come. Nine Days in Heaven brings the story of Marietta Davis to a new generation. The nineteenth-century language of the original has been updated for easier understanding, but the detailed portrayal of her vision remains intact. - Journey with Marietta to the shimmering reaches of PARADISE, where the redeemed enjoy the beauties of the new creation. - Observe children who died on earth as they are taught the MYSTERIES of God in infants' Heaven. - Grieve at the PLIGHT of the lost as they suffer the wages of sin. Supported by biblical references and practical observations, Nine Days in Heaven is more than the fanciful creation of a young woman's imagination. It is a travel guide to the life to come.

Song of Leira

Author: Gillian Bronte Adams Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: April 2021

The Song bids her rise to battle. Reeling from her disastrous foray into the Pit, Birdie, the young Songkeeper, retreats into the mountains. But in the war-torn north, kneeling on bloodstained battlefields to sing the souls of the dying to rest, her resolve to accept her calling is strengthened. Such evil cannot go unchallenged. Torn between oaths to protect the Underground runners and to rescue his friend from the slave camps, Ky Huntyr enlists Birdie's aid. Their mission to free the captives unravels the horrifying thread connecting the legendary spring, Artair's sword, and the slave camps. But the Takhran's schemes are already in motion. Powerful singers have arisen to lead his army - singers who can shake the earth and master the sea - and monsters rampage across the land. As Leira falters on the verge of defeat, the Song bids her rise to battle, and the Songkeeper must answer.

The Science of Creativity Audiobook

The Science of Creativity

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: March 2021

Creativity was long thought to be a gift from the muses, a special quality of a select minority of people. Fortunately, more recent studies have debunked this belief and have shown promise for techniques to help us all boost our creative potential. Nature gives some people a genetic edge, but nurture has a large role in developing creative genius. In this audiobook, we look at this difficult-to-define quality from all angles: where creativity comes from, lessons we can learn from creative geniuses, and how to cultivate creativity. We hope that these techniques, and this audiobook as a whole, will help unleash your own creative self.

A Modern Guide to Heathenry: Lore, Celebrations, and Mysteries of the Northern Traditions Audiobook

A Modern Guide to Heathenry: Lore, Celebrations, and Mysteries of the Northern Traditions

Author: Galina Krasskova Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: February 2021

An accessible yet in-depth guide to an increasingly popular pre-Christian religious tradition of Northern Europe. Heathenry is one of the fastest growing polytheistic religious movements in the United States today. In A Modern Guide to Heathenry, listeners will have the opportunity to explore the sacred stories of the various heathen gods like Odin, Frigga, Freya, and Thor, and will be granted a look into the devotional practices of modern votaries. Blots, the most common devotional rites, are examined in rich detail with examples given for personal use. Additionally, listeners are introduced to the concept of wyrd, or fate, so integral to the heathen worldview. Unlike many books on heathenry, this one is not denomination-specific, nor does it seek to overwhelm the listener with unfamiliar Anglo-Saxon or Norse terminology. For Pagans who wish to learn more about the Norse deities or those who are new to heathenry or who are simply interested in learning about this unique religion, A Modern Guide to Heathenry is the perfect introduction. Those who wish to deepen their own devotional practice will find this book helpful in their own work as well.

Orphan's Song Audiobook

Orphan's Song

Author: Gillian Bronte Adams Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: February 2021

Her solo is a death sentence. Deep within the world of Leira flows a melody that was sung at the beginning of time by Emhran, the Master Singer. Now it is broken, buried, forgotten. But in each generation, a Songkeeper arises to uphold the memory of the Song against those who want it silenced forever. When Birdie first hears the Song coming from her own mouth, her world shatters. She is no longer simply an orphan but the last of a hunted people. Forced to flee for her life, she must decide whom to trust--a traveling peddler, a streetwise thief, or a mysterious creature who claims to know her past. With enemies at her heels and war threatening to tear her homeland apart, Birdie soon discovers an overwhelming truth: the fate of Leira may hinge on one orphan's Song.

When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm Audiobook

When Anxiety Strikes: Help and Hope for Managing Your Storm

Author: Dena Hobbs, Jason Hobbs Narrator: Ann Richardson Release Date: January 2021

'Fear not.' 'Do not be afraid.' 'Peace be with you.' Phrases like these appear in the Bible more often than almost any other proclamation. We long to follow these commands. Yet for many, something inside us is wary, ready for anything and everything to go wrong. In fact, a quarter of Americans struggle with anxiety disorders-and Christians are not immune. Jason and Dena Hobbs are familiar with this struggle, professionally and personally-Jason as a clinician, Dena as someone with anxiety, and both as pastors of congregations full of anxious people. They also know the shame and confusion that so often accompany these disorders, especially for people who think their faith should be strong enough to overcome these struggles. With their deep understanding, they've written When Anxiety Strikes, an eight-week guide to managing anxiety, grounded in both Scripture and research. Structured for daily listening, with integrated practices for everyday life, the book addresses seven themes: breath, body, movement, mind, change, spirit, and community. Concise stories, readings, questions, and activities guide listeners to tackle the realities of living with anxiety. When Anxiety Strikes offers real solutions to find a solid landing place when the storm of fear looms.
