Finding God's Life for My Will: His Presence Is the Plan Audiobook

Finding God's Life for My Will: His Presence Is the Plan

Author: Mike Donehey Narrator: Mike Donehey Release Date: August 2019

The lead singer, songwriter, and guitarist for award-winning contemporary Christian band Tenth Avenue North shows readers that by seeking God first and focusing on serving Him, we can live daily in His will. 'Perhaps God isn't giving me the plan because He wants to be the plan.' This was the aha moment for Mike Donehey after years of wrestling with his obsession to know God's specific plans for his life. He came to the realization that waiting for absolute certainty from God before making decisions may seem uberspiritual, but it can lead to a life of intense stress, paralyzing fear, and crushing regret--just the opposite of the freedom granted to those living a Christ-filled life. 'This is my story...how I gave up begging to know God's will and began to ask His life to come and change my will.' With his signature humor and relentless hunger for God, Mike will show you that discovering the Father's purpose and plan for our lives is not the shell game that we all too often make it out to be. If you're unsure what to do next, take heart and accept the ultimate invitation: learn to see God as the plan, not simply the formula to the plan.

This guidebook, packed with wisdom, practical advice, resources, and encouragement, explores how moms can equip their sons with what they most need to succeed in life.

Praise for Boy Mom "In Boy Mom Monica Swanson offers readers practical advice and resounding hope that parenting our sons well through all seasons is not only possible but also enjoyable. This book is like an essential trail guide that I'll refer to again and again in the beautiful and challenging adventure of motherhood."-Becky Keife, author of No Better Mom for the Job and mom of three spirited boys "Monica Swanson is the friend we all need in our lives: humble, straightforward, warm, full of wisdom, and short on nonsense-and she knows her stuff like no one else. In Boy Mom she holds the bar high yet is forthcoming about her own struggles and imperfections.

The Boy Mom Manifesto at the end will not only inspire you but also make your heart swell."-Kate Merrick, author of Here, Now: Unearthing Peace and Presence in an Overconnected World "Monica Swanson is the ultimate Boy Mom mentor. While her perspective on parenting is grounded in biblical wisdom, each chapter holds excellent practical tools for how to work out that wisdom on a daily basis in our homes. Of course, we know there aren't formulas that will ensure we get it all right, but we also know that gleaning wisdom from women who have gone before us (and are still in the trenches with us) is invaluable in the wonderful adventure of helping boys become all God created them to be."-Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free

Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon Audiobook

Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon

Author: Greg Laurie Narrator: George Newbern Release Date: August 2019

Join Greg Laurie, pastor and bestselling author of Steve McQueen: The Salvation of an American Icon, as he takes you on a personal journey into the life and legend of Johnny Cash. At the peak of his career, Cash had done it all—living the ultimate rags-to-riches story of growing up on a cotton farm in the Deep South to becoming a Nashville and Hollywood sensation, singing alongside heroes like Elvis Presley and performing for several American presidents. But through all of this, Cash was troubled. By the time he released the iconic Man in Black album in 1971, the middle-aged icon was broken down, hollow-eyed, and wrung out. In his search for peace, Cash became embroiled in controversy. He was arrested five times in seven years. His drug- and alcohol-induced escapades led to car accidents and a forest fire that devastated 508 acres. His time was divided between Jesus and jail, gospel tunes and the “Cocaine Blues.” But by the end of his life, Cash was speaking openly about his “unshakeable faith.” What caused the superstar to turn from his conflicting passions to embrace a life in Christ? Johnny Cash: The Redemption of an American Icon dives deep into the singer’s inner demons, triumphs, and gradual return to faith. Laurie interviews Cash’s family, friends, and business associates to reveal how the singer’s true success came through finding the only Person whose star was bigger than his own.

Lovestruck: Discovering God's Design for Romance, Marriage, and Sexual Intimacy from the Song of Sol Audiobook

Lovestruck: Discovering God's Design for Romance, Marriage, and Sexual Intimacy from the Song of Sol

Author: Sharon Jaynes Narrator: Stacey Hagewood Release Date: August 2019

Sharon Jaynes, bestselling author, Bible teacher, and cofounder of Girlfriends in God, teaches women how to enjoy God's sacred gift of sexual intimacy without guilt or regret by exploring the beautiful picture given in the Song of Solomon. Everywhere we turn in our sex-saturated culture we are bombarded by destructive and unrealistic depictions of romance and intimacy. The problem, according to Bible teacher Sharon Jaynes, is not that culture focuses on sex too much but that it values sex too little. Sexual intimacy, as God intended it, is so much more than a physical act. Yet, with the extent of the church's message being 'don't do it' before marriage and 'don't talk about it' after, how are Christians to understand and practice the wondrous gift of intimacy between a husband and a wife when they so rarely hear biblical teaching about it?  In Lovestruck, Jaynes takes listeners back to the Bible's beautiful picture of romantic love, a picture that is explicit but not illicit, sensual but not sordid, daring but not dirty. With the words of Solomon and the Shulamite woman in the Song of Solomon as a backdrop, Jaynes explores topics such as the giving and receiving of pleasure, restoring romance in the mundane, making intimacy a priority, avoiding the dangers of growing indifference, creating time to pull away from life's busyness, and committing to a forever kind of love. When we see the sacred blessings of sexual intimacy in marriage and understand God's original intent, we find the freedom to enjoy and explore one of the Father's most magnificent gifts. Learn more about the language of Song of Solomon with 'Decoding Song of Solomon' in the accompanying PDF. ***Please contact Customer Service for additional content.***

The First Will Be Last: A Biblical Perspective On Narcissism Audiobook

The First Will Be Last: A Biblical Perspective On Narcissism

Author: Dc Robertsson Narrator: Jim Denison Release Date: August 2019

If you're checking out this book, there is a good chance you-or someone you care about-have experienced some of the more damaging consequences of genuine narcissism. Maybe you didn't realize you were dealing with a narcissist at first, but the pain and damage caused by this selfish, arrogant, condescending, and domineering person might have driven you to search for answers about what was going on, and how to deal with them. As you searched online or in books, you collected the conventional wisdom available, but feel there is still more to it. While the Bible does not use the exact term 'narcissism'-a word from Greek mythology-it most certainly speaks to the subject. In fact, if you look carefully, you might be surprised at just how much and how directly Scripture speaks about narcissism and narcissistic people. The First Will Be Last: A Biblical Perspective on Narcissism is just what the title says-an A-Z look at the Biblical perspective on these toxic people; including who they are, how they got that way, and how to deal with them. From key words to Biblical case studies, it will unlock a new perspective and provide a framework in your search for truth.

God's Battle Plan for the Mind: The Puritan Practice of Biblical Meditation Audiobook

God's Battle Plan for the Mind: The Puritan Practice of Biblical Meditation

Author: David W. Saxton Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: August 2019

During the seventeenth century, English Puritan pastors often encouraged their congregations in the spiritual discipline of meditating on God and His Word. Today, however, much of evangelicalism is either ignorant of or turned off to the idea of meditation. In God's Battle Plan for the Mind, pastor David Saxton seeks to convince God's people of the absolute necessity for personal meditation and motivate them to begin this work themselves. But he has not done this alone. Rather, he has labored through numerous Puritan works in order to bring together the best of their insights on meditation. Standing on the shoulders of these giants, Saxton teaches us how to meditate on divine truth and gives valuable guidance about how to rightly pattern our thinking throughout the day. With the rich experiential theology of the Puritans, this book lays out a course for enjoying true meditation on God's Word.

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.
