The Road to J.O.Y.: Leading with Faith, Playing with Purpose, Leaving a Legacy Audiobook

The Road to J.O.Y.: Leading with Faith, Playing with Purpose, Leaving a Legacy

Author: Scott Drew Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: May 2022

Scott Drew, head basketball coach of the NCAA National Championship-winning Baylor Bears, rebuilt a program mired in scandal by instilling a culture of putting Jesus first. More than a book about basketball, this is a road map for leading with, and living out, your faith in any context--in sports, in business, and in life. Nearly seventeen million viewers tuned into the 2021 NCAA National Championship to see the Baylor Bears, led by head coach Scott Drew, beat the top-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs, who were undefeated heading into the championship game. The win was Baylor's first National Championship--the culmination of the biggest turnaround in college sports history. When Drew accepted the head coaching position at Baylor in 2003, the job was arguably the worst in all of college sports. The men's basketball team had been disgraced by scandal: one player murdered a teammate, and the head coach who lied about the details tried to conceal illegal cash payments to his players, including a false allegation that the murdered player had been dealing drugs. It was an unprecedented story and a national embarrassment. Still, Coach Drew had a confident vision of what the program could be, even in the face of such adversity, and he guided his team to the pinnacle of success while leading with, and living out, his faith. The Road to J.O.Y. shares: - Biblical principles that have helped Coach Scott Drew lead well through challenging times - An insider's look at the others-first culture that spurred Baylor's rebound - Coach's wisdom for investing in others and creating a successful organization - The leadership lessons Drew has learned from growing up in a famous basketball family and years of coaching - How faith is the foundation for everything Drew does With equal parts inspirational memoir and personal and professional growth, The Road to J.O.Y. is perfect for anyone who is looking to better live out their faith, lead a team, achieve a goal, or mentor others.

More Than My Scars: The Power of Perseverance, Unrelenting Faith, and Deciding What Defines You Audiobook

More Than My Scars: The Power of Perseverance, Unrelenting Faith, and Deciding What Defines You

Author: Kechi Okwuchi Narrator: Kechi Okwuchi Release Date: May 2022

The first thing you will notice when you meet Kechi Okwuchi is her scars. One of just two survivors of a devastating plane crash that killed more than 100 people, sixteen-year-old Kechi was left with third-degree burns over sixty-five percent of her body. More Than My Scars is her incredible story. A story of not just surviving impossible odds but thriving in a world that is too often caught up with how we look on the outside rather than seeing that our true value is within. Now in her early thirties, Kechi has spent the last sixteen years refusing to be defined by her trauma. Follow her as she decides for herself what role her scars will play in her life before society decides for her. Her strong sense of identity, rooted in seeing herself the way God sees her, has allowed her to live authentically in a world that constantly seeks to define us by its ever-changing (and ever-shallow) standards. Kechi's story will inspire you to love and accept yourself as you are and confidently present your true self to the world.

Gratitude and Grit: The Life of Blessed Solanus Casey Audiobook

Gratitude and Grit: The Life of Blessed Solanus Casey

Author: Br. Leo Wollenweber O.F.M.Cap Narrator: Jon Pinnow Release Date: May 2022

Gratitude and Grit tells the startling story of the simple friar whose loving concern for everyday people dramatically transformed thousands of lives. A warm, straightforward account of Casey’s life from someone who knew him personally, this book is a testament to the fact that God is present in even the most unlikely places.  Detroit in the first half of the twentieth century was a place of industry, a place of hard work, grit, and determination—an unexpected place to find miracles. But God does some of his best work in unexpected places, and so Detroit became home to one of the Church’s most gentle and humble souls, a Capuchin Franciscan now known as Blessed Solanus Casey. From his simple cell at the monastery where he worked as doorkeeper, Casey’s ministry of spiritual counsel and divine healing captivated the Motor City—and eventually, the world. This reissue of Meet Solanus Casey: Miracle Worker and Spiritual Counselor includes a new foreword from Edward Foley, OFM Cap, vice postulator for the cause of Solanus Casey’s canonization.

A Quest for the Hidden Lands: Synchronicity, Serendipity, Spirituality Audiobook

A Quest for the Hidden Lands: Synchronicity, Serendipity, Spirituality

Author: Norma Levine Narrator: Norma Levine Release Date: May 2022

My budding career as a literary scholar was suddenly hijacked by a singular seemingly random event. It was 1976 when I tiptoed into a tiny Buddhist shrine room in a farmhouse nestled into the Black Mountains of Wales and there beheld a Tibetan master, the 16th Karmapa, sitting on a throne performing a ceremony known as The Black Hat. My mind came to an immediate stop, suspended. It felt familiar, like the secret garden of childhood. I can still remember every detail like it was yesterday: Karmapa occupies the throne completely. He has a spiritual dignity that makes it his rightful seat, just as the lion proclaims his natural dominion. The force of his presence alone brings a hushed silence to the room. It feels like it has expanded into a cathedral. Two monks blow long Tibetan horns in a haunting wail so loud and long it startles thought patterns, blowing them away like clouds. The Karmapa slowly opens the Black Hat-box, takes the black silk crown in his hand, and puts it on his head holding it down with one hand. With the other hand he fingers a crystal rosary moving it deftly, twirling the beads around three times. The horns continue while he gazes with eyes that seem to dissolve the fiction of time and the boundaries of space. Time is standing still. That glimpse into enlightened mind became embedded like a seed and grew into a quest over the next decades to find the key places on our planet called the Hidden Lands. The legend came alive while I was living in a Tibetan Buddhist monastery in the Himalayas. I met Tibetans who had been to the supreme Hidden Land of Pemako while escaping from the Chinese invasion of Tibet. They made it sound like the ‘promised land’ with streams flowing with milky water. There were certain plants that could induce enlightenment. Why did it take decades to get there? What made the right ingredients emerge to penetrate this sacred sanctuary? And the big question: Who hid it and why?

I'm Not Ready for This: Everybody Just Calm Down and Give Me a Minute Audiobook

I'm Not Ready for This: Everybody Just Calm Down and Give Me a Minute

Author: Anna Lind Thomas Narrator: Anna Thomas Release Date: May 2022

Read by the author with audiobook-exclusive bonus commentary. Can't we slow life down a bit-and maybe adjust the lighting? In I'm Not Ready for This, Anna draws on the uproarious and-ahem-vulnerable stories that have made her a social media sensation and the best friend we love to learn from. Whether she's remembering her childhood days in a rural school (Little House on the Prairie except closer to a nuclear power plant), describing her running style in her first 10K (similar to chasing a Burger King wrapper across a parking lot but with more thigh chafing), or detailing that one time she appeared on national TV in a blazer two sizes too small because she thought she'd lose twenty pounds before the shoot, Anna helps us see that life can be meaningful without always being quite so serious. Through her signature wit and painful relatability, Anna reminds us that only God is perfect, no one's truly ready for anything, and the world needs more women living with boldness, laughter, and a little lipstick on their teeth.

Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy: Religion, Politics, and Strategy Audiobook

Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy: Religion, Politics, and Strategy

Author: Dmitry Adamsky Narrator: Noah Michael Levine Release Date: May 2022

A nuclear priesthood has arisen in Russia. From portable churches to the consecration of weapons systems, the Russian Orthodox Church has been integrated into every facet of the armed forces to become a vital part of Russian national security, politics, and identity. This extraordinary intertwining of church and military is nowhere more visible than in the nuclear weapons community, where the priesthood has penetrated all levels of command and the Church has positioned itself as a guardian of the state's nuclear potential. Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy considers how, since the Soviet collapse in 1991, the Church has worked its way into the nuclear forces, the most significant wing of one of the world's most powerful military organizations. Dmitry Adamsky describes how the Orthodox faith has merged with Russian national identity as the Church continues to expand its influence on foreign and domestic politics. The Church both legitimizes and influences Moscow's assertive national security strategy in the twenty-first century. This book sheds light on the role of faith in modern militaries and highlights the implications of this phenomenon for international security. Ultimately, Russian Nuclear Orthodoxy interrogates the implications of the confluence of religion and security for other members of the nuclear club, beyond Russia.

A More Beautiful Life: A Simple Five-Step Approach to Living Balanced Goals with HEART Audiobook

A More Beautiful Life: A Simple Five-Step Approach to Living Balanced Goals with HEART

Author: Whitney English Narrator: Whitney English Release Date: May 2022

Read by the author. A More Beautiful Life walks you through setting HEART Goals, a proven framework that starts with helping you better understand yourself not by tracking and measuring everything to death but by meeting you right where you are. Traditional goal setting sets us up for failure. Starting from a place of desired outcomes, we attempt to answer the question, "Where do I want to end up in life?" Then we attempt to follow a plan that tells us to run in this direction and track our progress with journals, spreadsheets, and complicated tools. Often the plan is too long, too hard, and too elaborate. It's not flexible, fluid, or dynamic­-in other words, nothing like real life. We focus too much on outcomes, letting the end justify the means, and often forget who we are in the process, missing the point of goal setting altogether. We need a system that allows us to embrace who we are and let that understanding guide us toward a better life. In A More Beautiful Life, Whitney English shares HEART Goals-a system that starts with what matters most to you, never forcing you to adopt arbitrary goals and rules. The process matters, not just the outcomes. This system frees you from comparison and allows you to be authentically yourself. It helps you gain confidence as you make the progress that comes from having done your best instead of the depressing discouragement that comes from comparing yourself to the performances of others. You won't have to become someone else to get what you want. - H - Help Yourself - E - Empower Yourself - A - All Your People - R - Resources and Responsibilities - T - Trade This is an integrative approach to help you create a more meaningful life that is all yours. You won't feel imbalanced or off-center as you pursue one area of success, fearing it will cost you somewhere else. Without any striving, your goals will be aligned with where you want to go in life. You won't need to completely change who you are to follow the system. No more deadlines. No more tracking. No more nonsense. Graphics and journaling prompts are included in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Mental Health and the Church: A Ministry Handbook for Including Children and Adults with ADHD, Anxie Audiobook

Mental Health and the Church: A Ministry Handbook for Including Children and Adults with ADHD, Anxie

Author: Stephen Grcevich Md Narrator: Van Tracy Release Date: May 2022

The church across North America has struggled to minister effectively with children, teens, and adults with common mental health conditions and their families. One reason for the lack of ministry is the absence of a widely accepted model for mental health outreach and inclusion. In Mental Health and the Church: A Ministry Handbook for Including Children and Adults with ADHD, Anxiety, Mood Disorders, and Other Common Mental Health Conditions, Dr. Stephen Grcevich presents a simple and flexible model for mental health inclusion ministry for implementation by churches of all sizes, denominations, and organizational styles. The model is based upon recognition of seven barriers to church attendance and assimilation resulting from mental illness: stigma, anxiety, self-control, differences in social communication and sensory processing, social isolation and past experiences of church. Seven broad inclusion strategies are presented for helping persons of all ages with common mental health conditions and their families to fully participate in all of the ministries offered by the local church. The book is also designed to be a useful resource for parents, grandparents and spouses interested in promoting the spiritual growth of loved ones with mental illness.
