    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Taking his trademark intellectual approach to understanding Christianity, Timothy Keller uncovers the essential message of Jesus, locked inside his most familiar parable. Within that parable Jesus reveals God's prodigal grace toward both the irreligious and the moralistic. This book will challenge both the devout and skeptics to see Christianity in a whole new way.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! A whole new perspective of the older brother and how much like one of the brothers each of us are. The only true older brother is Jesus. He gives lovingly and unselfishly. Nothing was taken from him but everything was given out of love, mercy and abundant grace.

    Your toddler throws a tantrum in the middle of a store. Your preschooler refuses to get dressed. Your fifth-grader sulks on the bench instead of playing on the field. Do children conspire to make their parents’ lives endlessly challenging? No - it’s just their developing brain calling the shots! In this pioneering, practical book, Daniel J. Siegel, neuropsychiatrist and author of the best-selling Mindsight, and parenting expert Tina Payne Bryson demystify the meltdowns and aggravation, explaining the new science of how a child’s brain is wired and how it matures.

    Jeannette says: "A very helpful listen!"

    "When I first discovered the grainy picture in my mother’s desk—me as a towheaded two year old sitting in what I remember was a salmon-orange-stained lifeboat—I was overwhelmed by the feeling that the boy in the boat was not waving and laughing at the person snapping the photo as much as he was frantically trying to get the attention of the man I am today. The boy was beckoning me to join him on a voyage through the harrowing straits of memory."

    Story
    What did you love best about Jesus, My Father, the CIA, and Me?

    My heart hurt for him and his loss of innocence at such an early age but I love how God loved him so much that he asked him to forgive him for so many of the let downs. Thinking God will go to great lengths to reconcile himself to us. e.g Jesus allowed himself to be sacrificed for us and the father of the prodigal son ran to greet him. God definitely moves in mysterious ways. He gives us wake up calls and puts the right people in our life at just the right time as he did for Ian. Breathtaking1


    What did you like best about this story?

    How he was open to God even at his lowest points when he thought he had turned away. The rope held and he returned to the one who continually sought him out with abundant mercy and grace.


    Have you listened to any of Ian Morgan Cron’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. But I love the inflection he uses and the way he tells the story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. Quite a few. 1,) When his dad repeatedly let him down and didn't interact with him causing heartbreak. 2.) When his friends lovingly confronted him regarding his own alcoholism. 3.) When the lady told him who the voice was he had heard. 4.) How he remembers his mom. "When traveling through darkness and going through a tough time throw up your hands like you are riding a roller coaster and laugh /scream with joy until you come out on the other side. "5.) There is a difference between jumping and falling:) I think one involves fear and one does not. What a great lesson to teach your kids and remember yourself! 6.) He wanted to keep Jesus in his pocket and discovered that Jesus could swim. 7.) Forgiveness of all.
