Learning To Be: Finding Your Center After the Bottom Falls Out Audiobook

Learning To Be: Finding Your Center After the Bottom Falls Out

Author: Juanita Campbell Rasmus Narrator: Machelle Williams Release Date: September 2020

It felt as though every nerve in my body was popping. Imagine large strong hands slowly applying pressure while breaking a family-size package of uncooked, dry spaghetti. I was the spaghetti. Breaking down one piece at a time. This is how Juanita Rasmus begins the wise, frank, and witty account of what she later called 'The Crash' and what her counselor labeled 'a major depressive episode.' This experience landed Juanita, a busy pastor, mother, and community leader, in bed. In addition to exhaustion and depression, on the spiritual front she experienced a dark night of the soul. When everything in her life finally came to a stop, she found that she had to learn to be-with herself and with God-all over again. Pastor Juanita writes from her life with kind attention to the life of the listener. She offers both practical and spiritual insights but never pat answers. If you are longing for a trustworthy companion through dark days, this book is here for you. Each chapter includes life-giving spiritual practices to help you discover your own new ways of being.

The Tao of Influence: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders and Entrepreneurs Audiobook

The Tao of Influence: Ancient Wisdom for Modern Leaders and Entrepreneurs

Author: Karen Mcgregor Narrator: Tanya Eby Release Date: September 2020

A Unique Leadership BookTao and the Four Pillars of Influence stands apart as a business book. It speaks ancient wisdom to the modern-day leader, while providing practical and tangible actions that lead to high levels of sustainable influence. The book is an easy-to-follow roadmap to creating lasting change in your workplace, community and family, while navigating chaotic and demanding environments. Make an impact and positively influence others to create much needed change. As the "old world" influence of manipulation, hidden agendas, control and greed crumble, people are seeking a replacement. They want to be part of the solution. Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence is this replacement: it fills the gap between old and new world influence through the teachings and application of the Tao Te Ching, a 4000-year-old wisdom book written by Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu. The greatest power is in understanding the use of power. Karen McGregor is an international keynote speaker, TEDx speaker, and a guide to thousands of entrepreneurs and professionals seeking to become more influential leaders. In the Tao Te Ching, the Tao represents masculine creation and Te represents feminine nurturing. Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence speaks to both the feminine and masculine within, using words and concepts that are in keeping with the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching, and that don't rely on having to force, beat or defeat anything. Each chapter begins with a quote from the Tao Te Ching that connects with that chapter's theme. Then concludes with reflections and recommended action. Learn how to: - Handle challenges, including difficult people - End the dynamic that heightens power struggles and destroys influence - Create stillness and space to generate more presence and authentic power If you have read books such as Weconomy, Leaders Eat Last, or Eckhart Tolle's A New Earth, you will want to read and learn from Karen McGregor's Tao and the Four Pillars of Influence.

Something Worth Doing Audiobook

Something Worth Doing

Author: Jane Kirkpatrick Narrator: Christina Moore Release Date: September 2020

Some things are worth doing-even when the cost is great In 1853, Abigail Scott was a nineteen-year-old school teacher in Oregon Territory when she married Ben Duniway. Marriage meant giving up on teaching, but Abigail always believed she was meant to be more than a good wife and mother. When Abigail becomes the primary breadwinner for her growing family, what she sees as a working woman appalls her-and prompts her to devote her life to fighting for the rights of women, including the right to vote. Based on a true story, Something Worth Doing will resonate with modern women who still grapple with the pull between career and family, finding their place in the public sphere, and dealing with frustrations and prejudices when competing in male-dominated spaces.

A Audiobook

A

Author: André Alexis Narrator: Frances Mills Release Date: September 2020

Andre Alexis has described his fictional terrain as "the shifting ground between the imagined life and the life that you live in from day to day." There's no better representation of this than the compelling narrative in A, where Alexander Baddeley, a Toronto book reviewer, is obsessed with the work of the elusive and mythical poet Avery Andrews. Following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims throughout literary history, Baddeley tracks Andrews down, thinking that meeting his literary hero will provide some answers to his lifelong questions about creativity, art, and inspiration. Though replete with mysticism and allusions to spirituality and the divine, Alexis's writing in A manages to bring higher-level concepts down to the grassroots level, as the interactions between the two main characters results in a meditation and a revelation about the creative act itself that generates more and more questions about what it really means to be "inspired."

Peace: Hope and Healing for the Anxious Momma's Heart Audiobook

Peace: Hope and Healing for the Anxious Momma's Heart

Author: Becky Thompson Narrator: Becky Thompson, Tim Clinton Release Date: September 2020

The bestselling author of Love Unending and Midnight Mom Devotional reassures anxious women that even if you can't shake off fear, your faith is not broken. For years, Christian women have been told, 'If you just prayed more, had more faith, and trusted Jesus, you'd have more peace.' But what does it mean when a Christian momma continues to worry? How does she reconcile her feelings of fear with her faith in God? And how does she raise her children in a home full of peace when she feels anything but peaceful? Becky Thompson, a best-selling author with a degree in biblical studies, knows firsthand what it is like to suffer from the crippling effects of anxiety--a condition she has struggled to overcome for most of her life. For her and many others, the fear she faces is not a faith issue. It's a physical one that affects over 40 million adults in the US. As Becky examines the relationship between the promise of peace in Scripture and the reality of life, motherhood, and anxiety, she brings both a practical and spiritual approach to the discussion of anxiety and how it impacts your mind, body, and spirit. Peace meets moms in the forest of fear where they have felt isolated and alone and walks them toward hope, reminding them that there are millions of other women who walk the same dark, uncertain trails they do and there isn't something wrong with their faith because they can't shake the fear. Peace is a lifeline for the Christian mom desperate for solid advice based on sound doctrine and presented in a way that makes her feel understood and far less alone on her journey toward healing.

The Everything Answer Book: How Quantum Science Explains Love, Death, and the Meaning of Life Audiobook

The Everything Answer Book: How Quantum Science Explains Love, Death, and the Meaning of Life

Author: Amit Goswami, Ph.D. Narrator: Sean Runnette Release Date: September 2020

Goswami's basic premise is that quantum physics is not only the future of science, but is also the key to understanding consciousness, life, death, God, psychology, and the meaning of life. Quantum physics is an antidote to the moral sterility and mechanistic approach of scientific materialism and is the best and clearest approach to understanding our universe. In short, quantum physics is indeed the theory of everything. Here in seventeen chapters, Dr. Goswami and his friends and colleagues discuss, among other things, how quantum physics affects our understanding of: ● Zen ● Thoughts, feelings, and intuitions ● Dreams ● Karma, death, and reincarnation ● God's will, evolution, and purpose

The Penguin Book of Exorcisms Audiobook

The Penguin Book of Exorcisms

Author: Tba Narrator: Dennis Logan Release Date: September 2020

Haunting accounts of real-life exorcisms through the centuries and around the world, from ancient Egypt and the biblical Middle East to colonial America and twentieth-century South Africa A Penguin Classic Levitation. Feats of superhuman strength. Speaking in tongues. A hateful, glowing stare. The signs of spirit possession have been documented for thousands of years and across religions and cultures, even into our time: In 2019 the Vatican convened 250 priests from 50 countries for a weeklong seminar on exorcism. The Penguin Book of Exorcisms brings together the most astonishing accounts: Saint Anthony set upon by demons in the form of a lion, a bull, and a panther, who are no match for his devotion and prayer; the Prophet Muhammad casting an enemy of God out of a young boy; fox spirits in medieval China and Japan; a headless bear assaulting a woman in sixteenth-century England; the possession in the French town of Loudun of an entire convent of Ursuline nuns; a Zulu woman who floated to a height of five feet almost daily; a previously unpublished account of an exorcism in Earling, Iowa, in 1928--an important inspiration for the movie The Exorcist; poltergeist activity at a home in Maryland in 1949--the basis for William Peter Blatty's novel The Exorcist; a Filipina girl 'bitten by devils'; and a rare example of a priest's letter requesting permission of a bishop to perform an exorcism--after witnessing a boy walk backward up a wall. Fifty-seven percent of Americans profess to believe in demonic possession; after reading this book, you may too.
