Raising Up Dreamers: Find and Grow Your Child's God-Given Talents Audiobook

Raising Up Dreamers: Find and Grow Your Child's God-Given Talents

Author: Shelia Erwin Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: July 2020

How do you raise Christian kids who have dreams that seem beyond their reach? Parenting is an important task, but the pressure doesn't need to be on us. As parents, we simply need to follow the leading of the Lord with the understanding that our children's natural abilities are actually the Lord working out their destiny. When we give Christ unlimited control of our parenting, we learn that Jesus is a better parent to our children than we can ever hope to be. As Sheila Erwin shares personal stories of raising two successful filmmakers and delves into biblical principles, you will be encouraged to cultivate your children's gifts and help them reach their dreams―no matter how impossible they seem. By parenting from a position of trust and rest in God, you can guide your children to chase their God-given dreams and channel their talents to glorify God instead of being gripped by the world.

The Cash Machine: A Tale of Passion, Persistence, and Financial Independence Audiobook

The Cash Machine: A Tale of Passion, Persistence, and Financial Independence

Author: Chana Mason, Dave Mason Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: June 2020

Can a novel transform your financial destiny?This one can. The Cash Machine is unlike any other personal finance book ever written. Not only will you get sucked into the rollercoaster relationship of Amber and Dylan, you’ll learn hundreds of money lessons along the way, giving you the tools to drive your financial destiny. As the book begins, Amber thinks her finances are under control, but her worldview crumbles when she encounters her college flame, Dylan, and his unusual perspective on money. While Amber and her friends were finishing their degrees, Dylan dropped out to pursue a different goal: Financial Independence. Amber doesn’t even know what Financial Independence means when she reconnects with Dylan seven years later. What she does know is that there’s nothing exciting about his lifestyle. At first she writes him off as a bum, but the more she questions, the more she realizes how calculated his financial choices are. He’s not struggling for money; he’s building a Cash Machine. Unlike other personal finance books, The Cash Machine was not written by financial experts. Dave and Chana Mason found themselves deeply in debt, despite having earned significant amounts of money in their careers. They came to realize that what they didn’t understand about money really was hurting them, and that the time had come to get themselves a strong financial education. And when Dave and Chana want to grow in some area, they find that there’s no better way than to research and write a novel on the subject. The result is a novel that has more financial lessons than any personal finance book they’ve ever seen. Discover hundreds of financial lessons, seamlessly taught within a novel you won’t want to put down.

Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: How the Church Needs to Rediscover Her Purpose Audiobook

Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: How the Church Needs to Rediscover Her Purpose

Author: Aimee Byrd Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: May 2020

While evangelicalism dukes it out about who can be church leaders, the rest of the 98% of us need to be well equipped to see where we fit in God's household and why that matters. Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is a resource to help church leaders improve the culture of their church and disciple men and women in their flock to read, understand, and apply Scripture to their lives in the church. Until both men and women grow in their understanding of their relationship to Scripture, there will continue to be tension between the sexes in the church. Church leaders need to be engaged in thoughtful critique of the biblical manhood and womanhood movement and the effects it has on their congregation. Do men and women benefit equally from God's word? Are they equally responsible in sharpening one another in the faith and passing it down to the next generation? While radical feminists claim that the Bible is a hopelessly patriarchal construction by powerful men that oppresses women, evangelical churches simply reinforce this teaching when we constantly separate men and women, customizing women's resources and studies according to a culturally based understanding of roles. Do we need men's Bibles and women's Bibles, or can the one, holy Bible guide us all? Is the Bible, God's word, so male-centered and authored that women need to create their own resources to relate to it? No! And in it, we also learn from women. Women play an active role as witnesses to the faith, passing it on to the new generations. This audiobook explores the feminine voice in Scripture as synergistic with the dominant male voice. Through the women, we often get the story behind the story--take Ruth for example, or the birth of Christ through the perspective of Mary and Elizabeth in Luke. Aimee fortifies churches in a biblical understanding of brotherhood and sisterhood in God's household and the necessity of learning from one another in studying God's word. The troubling teaching under the rubric of 'biblical manhood and womanhood' has thrived with the help of popular Biblicist interpretive methods. And Biblicist interpretive methods ironically flourish in our individualistic culture that works against the 'traditional values' of family and community that the biblical manhood and womanhood movement is trying to uphold. This audiobook helps to correct Biblicist trends in the church today, affirming that we do not read God's word alone, we read it within our interpretive covenant communities--our churches. Our relationship with God's word affects our relationship with God's people, and vice versa. The church is the school of Christ, commissioned to discipleship. The responsibility of every believer, men and women together, is being active and equal participants in and witnesses to the faith--the tradents of faith. Discussion questions and accompanying charts are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Author: Colleen Stanley Narrator: Charity Spencer, Colleen Stanley, Janet Ivey-Duensing Release Date: April 2020

Emotional intelligence plays a vital role at every stage of the sales process.

Where Goodness Still Grows: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy Audiobook

Where Goodness Still Grows: Reclaiming Virtue in an Age of Hypocrisy

Author: Amy Peterson Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: January 2020

Where Goodness Still Grows challenges evangelical culture and rediscovers a faith deeply rooted in a return to Jesus Christ's life and ministry. The evangelical church in America has reached a crossroads. Social media and recent political events have exposed the fault lines that exist within our country and our spiritual communities. Millennials are leaving the church, citing hypocrisy, partisanship, and unkindness as reasons they can't stay. In this book, Amy Peterson laments the corruption and blind spots of the evangelical church and the departure of so many from the faith. But she refuses to give up hope. Where Goodness Still Grows dissects the moral code of American evangelicalism and puts it back together in a new way. Amy writes as someone intimately familiar with, fond of, and also deeply critical of the world of conservative evangelicalism. She writes as a woman and a mother, as someone invested in the future of humanity, and as someone who just needs to know how to teach her kids what it means to be good. She reimagines virtue as a tool, not a weapon; as wild, not tame; as embodied, not written. Reimagining specific virtues, such as kindness, purity, modesty, hospitality, and hope, Amy finds that if we listen harder and farther, we will find the places where goodness still grows.

Kinda Like Grace: A Homeless Man, a Broken Woman, and the Decision That Made Them Family

Author: Ginger Sprouse Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: June 2019

A homeless man on a street corner. A compassionate woman with a difficult past. An incredible story of our amazing capacity to love. Stopped at a familiar intersection on her way to work, Ginger Sprouse watched the homeless man pacing the garbage-strewn ground in his bare feet. Compelled to pull over and say hello, she was drawn to his exuberant joy and infectious smile. And his ready acceptance of her was a welcome counterpoint to her internal struggle with guilt and shame at her past. Over the next few months, Ginger would learn that Victor had been returning to that spot because it was the last place he had seen his mother-three years earlier. Motivated by her faith and their deepening friendship, Ginger set out to help Victor. When it became clear that he could not live safely on his own, she and her family offered him a permanent place in their home. What she then learned about forgiveness, humility, and love changed her forever. Kinda Like Grace is a powerful reminder that seemingly insurmountable obstacles can be overcome, that we all deserve second chances, and that each of us has an amazing capacity to love. Follow Ginger and Victor's story with photos available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

The Color of Life: A Journey toward Love and Racial Justice Audiobook

The Color of Life: A Journey toward Love and Racial Justice

Author: Cara Meredith Narrator: Charity Spencer Release Date: February 2019

Cara Meredith grew up in a colorless world. From childhood, she didn't think issues of race had anything to do with her. A colorblind rhetoric had been stamped across her education, world view, and Christian theology. Then as an adult, Cara's life took on new, colorful hues. She realized that her generation, seeking to move beyond ancestral racism, had swung so far that they tried to act as if they didn't see race at all. But that picture neglected the unique cultural identity God gives each person. When Cara met and fell in love with the son of black icon, James Meredith, she began to listen to the stories and experiences of others in a new way, taking note of the cultures, sounds and shades of life already present around her. After she married and their little family grew to include two mixed-race sons, Cara knew she would never see the world through a colorless lens again. A writer and speaker in an interracial marriage and mixed-race family, Cara finds herself more and more in the middle of discussions about racial justice. In The Color of Life, she asks how do we navigate ongoing and desperately-needed conversations about race? How do we teach our children a theology of reconciliation and love? And what does it mean to live a life that makes space for seeing the imago Dei in everyone? Cara's illuminating memoir paints a beautiful path from white privilege toward racial healing, from ignorance toward seeing the image of God in everyone she meets.
