Miracle Creek Christmas Audiobook

Miracle Creek Christmas

Author: Krista Jensen Narrator: Christine Williams Release Date: December 2020

Riley Madigan escapes to the sleepy mountain town of Miracle Creek after her relationship with an A-list actor ends badly. At least for a time, she hopes her new job as a high school art teacher will bring her the peace and quiet she is looking for. The last thing on her mind is love. Mark Rivers was a firefighter until he got trapped in a wildfire and suffered third-degree burns on his face and body. After a year of recovering, Mark is trying to piece his life back together but struggles both emotionally and psychologically. He's been a recluse until he forces himself to attend his niece's school play and sees Riley, the school's art teacher. Immediately, Mark feels a connection to her. Maybe it's the kind way she greets his niece or the way the art she created for the school play is reminiscent of his late mom's artwork. Either way, Mark feels driven to get to know her, but first he'll need to build up the courage to talk to her. When Mark asks Riley to work on a special nativity, he finds himself falling for her, particularly because Riley doesn't seem bothered by his scars. Is her affection for him real or is she simply overcompensating, pretending he's not different. One thing's for certain, in a small town that views Mark as a fragile hero, it's hard to pursue a relationship without everyone in his business. And although Riley has sincere feelings for Mark, is she really ready to risk her heart? Broken hearts and lives are mended as the town of Miracle Creek comes together to celebrate a Christmas to remember.

Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat Audiobook

Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat

Author: Diana Rodgers, Robb Wolf Narrator: Christine Williams Release Date: November 2020

We're told that if we care about our health-or our planet-eliminating red meat from our diets is crucial. That beef is bad for us and cattle farming is horrible for the environment. But science says otherwise. Beef is framed as the most environmentally destructive and least healthy of meats. We're often told that the only solution is to reduce or quit red meat entirely. But despite what anti-meat groups, vegan celebrities, and some health experts say, plant-based agriculture is far from a perfect solution. In Sacred Cow, registered dietitian Diana Rodgers and former research biochemist and New York Times bestselling author Robb Wolf explore the quandaries we face in raising and eating animals-focusing on the largest (and most maligned) of farmed animals, the cow. Taking a critical look at the assumptions and misinformation about meat, Sacred Cow points out the flaws in our current food system and in the proposed "solutions." Inside, Rodgers and Wolf reveal contrarian but science-based findings, such as Meat and animal fat are essential for our bodies.A sustainable food system cannot exist without animals.A vegan diet may destroy more life than sustainable cattle farming.Regenerative cattle ranching is one of our best tools at mitigating climate change.You'll also find practical guidance on how to support sustainable farms and a thirty-day challenge to help you transition to a healthful and conscientious diet. With scientific rigor, deep compassion, and wit, Rodgers and Wolf argue unequivocally that meat (done right) should have a place on the table. It's not the cow, it's the how!

But just as her fragile soul begins to feel hope again, an ill-timed act of charity changes everything. The Kiss Thief As the head librarian of the Echo Ridge Library, Britta Klein thrives on order and categorization. Unfortunately, the old church-turned-library is in desperate need of a renovation. The Harvest Hurrah fundraiser seems to be the answer, but plans keep going awry. With help from musician Milo Geissler, each catastrophe is narrowly avoided. When Milo goes to great lengths to help Britta find a key classic book, she begins to wonder if there is more to life than books and order. The Princess Bride of Riodan When a mysterious man offers to help Elise redecorate the old Bed & Breakfast, she gladly hands him a wallpaper steamer. After she discovers his true identity, she doesn’t know whether to curtsy or run and hide. Unfortunately, hiding isn’t an option because her heart is already tangled up with the handsome prince. Coming Home to Love When Laney Richins left Echo Ridge, New York, eight years ago, she vowed she’d never return, but life had other plans. Those plans included her cute little boy and a divorce, so Laney moved back home and started over. Working in the flower shop seems like the perfect plan until Billy Redford, the man she should have married, shows up. Billy knows how to build just about anything, but he isn’t sure he knows how to mend a broken heart.

Compensation at the Top will add original intellectual capital to the issues of paying for performance and will bring the alignment research alive with stories, experiences, and perspectives from people who have dealt with these issues for years. The book will feature an original data base, collected for a 25 year period, that will quantify how much total compensation is actually delivered to a CEO for a given level of company performance, revenue size, and industry.   The authors are developing this empirical data base across a broad group of companies (i.e., the S&P 1500), representing the Executive Labor Market (ELM), and will report the actual realized pay for given levels of performance.

Emotionally Intelligent Leadership: A Guide for College Students Audiobook

Emotionally Intelligent Leadership: A Guide for College Students

Author: Marcy Levy Shankman, Scott J. Allen Narrator: Christine Williams Release Date: July 2020

This text is meant to teach college students how to develop their skills in emotionally intelligent leadership. Like other texts of this nature, it assumes that everyone has the capacity to be a leader, not just those in official roles in formal organizations. The authors argue that college students are in the unique position of having a learning lab at their disposal. The campus environment provides a rich array of diversity and opportunities for honing leadership skills. It is the first book for students that combines the concepts of emotional intelligence (EI) and leadership into one model of Emotionally Intelligent Leadership (EIL), around which the book is organized. The EIL model is defined as consciousness of context, consciousness of self, and consciousness of others, and each chapter represents one of the 21 defined skills that make up this triad. The book is meant to provide students with a clear and engaging theoretical perspective as well as practical application. Further it encourages purposeful reflection of the concepts presented and provides students with tools to learn more about themselves, work more productively with others, improve relationships, and be more effective in a leadership capacity.
