Nice: Why We Love to Be Liked and How God Calls Us to More Audiobook

Nice: Why We Love to Be Liked and How God Calls Us to More

Author: Sharon Hodde Miller Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: September 2019

God never called us to be nice. What happens when we replace courage with compromise? What happens when we replace honesty with likability? What happens when we replace conviction with cliches? What happens when we replace discipleship to Christ with a devotion to nice? We live in a culture that prizes niceness as one of its highest virtues. Niceness keeps the peace, wins friends, gains influence, and serves our reputations well, but it also takes the teeth out of our witness and the power out of our faith. When we choose to be nice instead of faithful, we bear fruits that are bland, bitter, empty, and rotten to the core. In this life-changing book, Sharon Hodde Miller explores the seemingly innocent idol that has crept into our faith and quietly corrupted it, producing the bad fruits of cowardice, inauthenticity, shallowness, and more. Then she challenges listeners to cultivate a better tree, providing practical steps to reclaim our credibility as followers of Christ, and bear better, richer, more life-giving fruits.

All Shall Be Well: Awakening to God's Presence in His Messy, Abundant World Audiobook

All Shall Be Well: Awakening to God's Presence in His Messy, Abundant World

Author: Catherine Mcniel Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: August 2019

In All Shall Be Well, Catherine McNiel reflects on the sacred work of creation and redemption going on all around us-that we are often too busy and distracted to notice. This is a book about walking barefoot on dew-drenched grass, chatting with neighbors, caring for children and aging parents, and crunching through fallen leaves. It is a book about living life from its imperceptible beginnings through to its full vibrancy, and continuing courageously on toward certain decline. About accepting both the flower and the thorn, the gift and the loss. These natural, God-ordained cycles are the materials of the Creator and Redeemer. This is where He meets and makes us. And underneath it all is the life-changing reality that the cold death of winter is always made alive by spring. All Shall Be Well takes the message of creation and redemption out of stained glass cathedrals and textbooks and into our common experience of spring and summer, autumn and winter. Catherine intertwines reality with theology, awakening the listener to the truth of God declared all around us. Seamlessly weaving Bible passages into stories of real life, Catherine kindles belief in an unbelievable reality: that God does His creative, redemptive work in the mud and mortar of each mundane moment . . . and He is always, always making things new.

The Stars Shine Bright

Author: Sibella Giorello Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: August 2019

After the FBI suspends her for bending its rules, Special Agent Raleigh Harmon is looking for a chance to redeem her career and re-start her life. Sent undercover to a thoroughbred horse track, Raleigh takes on a double life to find out who’s fixing the races. But when horses start dying and then her own life is threatened, Raleigh realizes something bigger—and more sinister—is ruining Emerald Meadows. She’s never felt more alone. Her one contact with the FBI is Special Agent Jack Stephanson, a guy who seems to jump from antagonistic to genuine friend depending on the time of day. And she can’t turn to her family for support. They’re off-limits while she’s undercover, and her mother isn’t speaking to her anyway, having been confined to a mental hospital following a psychotic breakdown. Adding insult to her isolation, Raleigh’s fiancé wants them to begin their life together—now—precisely when she’s been ordered not to be herself. With just days left before the season ends, Raleigh races to stop the killing and find out who’s behind the track’s trouble, all the while trying to determine if Jack is friend or foe, and whether marrying her fiancé will make things better—or worse. Raleigh is walking through the darkest night she’s faced, searching for a place where the stars shine bright.

Author: Sibella Giorello Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: July 2019

Everything's going to work out. Time away always makes things better . . . That's what FBI Special Agent Raleigh Harmon believes as she boards a cruise to Alaska. A land of mountains and gems and minerals, the Last Frontier is a dream destination for this forensic geologist who's hoping to leave behind a hectic work schedule and an engagement drained of romance. But when a passenger goes missing and winds up dead, Raleigh's vacation suddenly gets lost at sea.

Engulfed by one of her toughest cases yet, Raleigh requests assistance from the FBI and receives her nemesis-handsome Special Agent Jack Stephanson. As the cruise ship sails through the Inside Passage, Raleigh has five days to solve a high-profile murder, provide consultation for a movie filming onboard, and figure out her increasingly complicated feelings for Jack-who might not be as arrogant as she originally thought. And that's only her work life. Family offers even more challenges. Joined on the cruise by her mother and aunt, Raleigh watches helplessly as disturbing rifts splinter her family. Like the scenery that surrounds the cruise ship, Raleigh discovers a mystery so daunting that even the mountains might bow down before it.

Author: Sibella Giorello Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: July 2019

Raleigh Harmon's life seems as impossible to solve as the high-profile case she's pursuing. Closing her assignment with the FBI's Seattle office, forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon returns to her hometown of Richmond, Virginia, expecting a warm welcome.

And the deeper Raleigh digs into the case, the murkier the water becomes . . . until she's left wondering who the real victims might be. To make matters worse, Raleigh's personal life offers almost zero clarity. Her former confidant is suddenly remote while her former boyfriend keeps popping up wherever she goes. And then there's her mother. Raleigh's move home was supposed to improve Nadine's fragile sanity, but instead seems to be making things worse. As the threads of the case begin crossing and double-crossing, Raleigh is forced to rely on her forensic skills, her faith, and the fervent hope that a breakthrough will come, bringing with it that singular moment when the clouds roll away and everything finally makes sense.

Fighting for My Life: How to Thrive in the Shadow of Alzheimer's Audiobook

Fighting for My Life: How to Thrive in the Shadow of Alzheimer's

Jamie Tyrone was forty-nine years old when she learned she had a genetic predisposition toward Alzheimer's disease-in fact, her genes translated to a 91 percent chance that she would contract the disease during her lifetime. Surprised by the way she learned of the diagnosis through genetic testing, and painfully familiar with Alzheimer's because of her family history and her experience as a nurse, Jamie felt as if she had a ticking time-bomb inside her, ready to go off at any moment. After an initial bout with depression, Jamie decided to take action rather than concede defeat. She started by founding B.A.B.E.S (Beating Alzheimer's By Embracing Science) to raise money and awareness in the search for a cure. Energized by that community, Jamie teamed up with renowned neurologist Dr. Marwan Sabbagh to write Fighting for My Life as a practical, helpful guide for those who know they are at greater risk of contracting Alzheimer's Disease. This audiobook is unique because it offers expert medical advice from Dr. Sabbagh alongside Jamie's real-life experiences as a woman living in the shadow of Alzheimer's. In addition, Fighting for My Life is one of the only titles on the market that takes an honest look at the pros, cons, and possible dangers of genetic testing.

The Here, Now: Unearthing Peace and Presence in an Overconnected World

Author: Kate Merrick Narrator: Jill Blackwood, Lisa Larsen Release Date: April 2019

Kate Merrick takes readers on a journey to drop the distractions and check back into their actual lives, discovering the good, true, and beautiful things God offers when they choose to be present right here, right now. For too many women, life just passes by. They feel a lack, a deep dissatisfaction with their circumstances, so they busy themselves in an effort to distract from their less-than-hoped-for lives, constantly looking for what better season may be coming next. In the process, they miss the everyday glorious moments God wants to use and speak through today. In Here, Now, Kate Merrick invites women to stop running away from their actual lives and instead to walk in the peace and fullness God offers when they quiet their souls, listen to what he's saying, and live with brave intentionality. With more than a little personal confession, humor, and honest contemplation, Kate brings readers into her journey to look deep inside her heart, identify and remove the obstacles that prevent her from being truly present, and intentionally receive the gifts of God found in all of life's moments--the painful ones, the big and beautiful ones, and also the ordinary ones.
