    According to time management expert Laura Vanderkam, mornings hold the key to taking control of our schedules. If we use them wisely, we can build habits that will allow us to lead happier, more productive lives. Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research that shows why the early hours of the day are so important, Vanderkam reveals how successful people use mornings to help them accomplish things that are often impossible to take care of later in the day.

    "In the summer of 1991 I was a normal kid. I did normal things. I had friends and a mother who loved me. I was just like you. Until the day my life was stolen. For eighteen years I was a prisoner. I was an object for someone to use and abuse. For eighteen years I was not allowed to speak my own name. I became a mother and was forced to be a sister. For eighteen years I survived an impossible situation. On August 26, 2009, I took my name back. My name is Jaycee Lee Dugard. I dont think of myself as a victim. I survived...."

    What did you love best about A Stolen Life?

    I loved that she told her own story. In her own words and her own voice. It was hard to hear all the horrible things that she endured but it is a story of survival. I was also impressed with how well written it was. She didn't get to go to school after she was taken so that makes this work even more impressive.

    What made the experience of listening to This Present Darkness the most enjoyable?

    I don't think I had ever listened to a "christian" novel before so this was a pleasant surprise. It was wonderfully visual and gave a new way to think about the world around me.

    While this was my first Frank Peretti novel it won't be my last.

    Would you consider the audio edition of This Time Together to be better than the print version?

    Listening to Carol Burnett tell her story was the perfect way to experience this book.


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

    When Carol talked about losing her daughter to cancer.
