Knot on Your Life

Author: Betty Hechtman Narrator: Margaret Strom Release Date: May 2020

In a new Yarn Retreat Mystery from nationally bestselling author Betty Hechtman, Casey Feldstein will have to unravel an assortment of tangled clues to solve a knotty murder mystery . . . The yarn retreat group visiting scenic Vista Del Mar has already planned their own activities, so part-time dessert maker and retreat host Casey Feldstein is looking forward to a stress-free weekend. But the rustic locale is also playing host to a mindfulness retreat for Silicon Valley start-up entrepreneurs along with a flock of bird-watchers, and soon everyone at the resort is getting wound up. And when Casey discovers the dead body of one of the tech gurus on the rocky shore of the Pacific, she begins to suspect that what looks like an accident is actually a calculated murder. With so many suspects to choose from and mysterious connections emerging between members of the groups, Casey will have to knit together a colorful array of clues as she wrangles with Vista Del Mar's prickly manager and the curmudgeonly local police lieutenant. And as she closes in on the likely culprit, she'll have to tie up the loose ends of her investigation before the killer can stitch her full of holes . . .

Seeking God Together: An Introduction to Group Spiritual Direction

Author: Alice Fryling Narrator: Margaret Strom Release Date: April 2020

If you're longing to become more attentive to God-to listen to him, know his voice and experience his love, spiritual direction can point the way. In Seeking God Together, experienced spiritual director Alice Fryling offers a unique introduction specifically for group spiritual direction: a place where individuals can experience what it means to be listened to and loved by others, so that they can learn to listen more attentively to God in their daily lives and be used by God. Out of her years of being both director and directee, Fryling offers practical, step-by-step guidance for those who would like to start, lead or participate in group spiritual direction. Her book will help you know what to expect and fully equip you for the different aspects of the group experience, including learning to listen to God, using Scripture in a group, navigating different personalities, setting group expectations and asking life-giving questions. 'The intentional goal of group spiritual direction,' Alice writes, 'is to help each participant become more aware of God in their lives, for the sake of others. Spiritual direction leads you to an awakening of the soul.' The Spirit is speaking to you and to others. Here is a book to help you and a group of soul friends listen for and with each other as you seek God together.

When another young woman vanishes and Merry realizes the lives of people close to her are at stake, she will stop at nothing to uncover the group's sinister secrets before the murderous ministry can strike again . . .

Sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons are reunited with a distant relative who wants them to cater a New Year's Eve event-and help find a guilty party . . .

On New Year's Eve, she'll gather a group of guests and read from a diary she's found in her mother's attic that she thinks will expose the culprit. The Simmons sisters agree to provide refreshments for the bash, and when the night arrives, Ada's ready to count down to a confession. But as midnight approaches, a guest drops dead. It looks like the menu tonight includes champagne and cyanide . . . In the tumult, the diary disappears. When Ada is arrested for murder, she'll have to hope that Bernie and Libby can provide a resolution before the clock runs out.

The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades Audiobook

The Writing Revolution: A Guide to Advancing Thinking Through Writing in All Subjects and Grades

Author: Judith C. Hochman, Natalie Wexler Narrator: Margaret Strom Release Date: July 2018

The Writing Revolution (TWR) provides a clear method of instruction that you can use no matter what subject or grade level you teach. The model, also known as The Hochman Method, has demonstrated, over and over, that it can turn weak writers into strong communicators by focusing on specific techniques that match their needs and by providing them with targeted feedback. Insurmountable as the challenges faced by many students may seem, TWR can make a dramatic difference. And the method does more than improve writing skills. It also helps boost reading comprehension, improve organizational and study skills, enhance speaking abilities, and develop analytical capabilities. TWR is as much a method of teaching content as it is a method of teaching writing. There's no separate writing block and no separate writing curriculum. Instead, teachers of all subjects adapt the TWR strategies and activities to their current curriculum and weave them into their content instruction. But perhaps what's most revolutionary about the TWR method is that it takes the mystery out of learning to write well. It breaks the writing process down into manageable chunks and then has students practice the chunks they need, repeatedly, while also learning content.
