  • Love & Respect: The Love She Most Desires; The Respect He Desperately Needs

    Successful couples know that harmony and happiness in marriage are not achieved by love alone. There is the other side of the Ephesians 5:33 equation - respect. Yes, a wife needs love. But a husband needs respect. Based on extensive biblical and scientific research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs reveals the secret to couples meeting each other's deepest needs: Without love she reacts without respect, and without respect he reacts without love and a destructive, vicious cycle begins.

    What made the experience of listening to Love & Respect the most enjoyable?

    Really being able to understand my other half from both a biblical and practical view.


    Any additional comments?

    What made this so good? It really works if you really apply it. Learning why men tick the way they do ( and women ) has transformed how I interact with the opposite sex. The teaching was not only funny, but filled with AH HA moments of understanding. What better investment than to learn how to make your relationships better? It really has changed for the better how I view the opposite sex and has blessed my home. My other half listed to it as well and when getting into a heated moment we both smile knowing how we can deal with it for the better. A must listen if you want to transform your relationships for the better.

    What did you love best about The Horse Whisperer?

    It's hard to say what I loved best. I guess it just swept me up. A mothers drive to heal the wounds of the family ( including her own). The ''horse whisperer'' tom is based on an actually man ( still alive ) today who does horse therapy so to speak. He does therapy for the horses as well as the riders. I suppose the notion and romantic situation caught me up. The story was touching, heart breaking and sweet. I guess it was simple well written cowboy love story with a twist.

    Forced by her father to marry a man three times her age, young Nujood Ali was sent away from her parents and beloved sisters and made to live with her husband and his family in an isolated village in rural Yemen. There she suffered daily from physical and emotional abuse by her mother-in-law and nightly at the rough hands of her spouse. Flouting his oath to wait to have sexual relations with Nujood until she was no longer a child, he took her virginity on their wedding night.

    For just a few hours I was wondering how this would be. But I listened to it in one streght. I was shocking and eye opening. Some of your money goes to help support this young lady in this purchase, plus you get a audio book. I learned something new, got an audio and helped support Nujood. It was worth the few dollars for me.

    The child of a scheming father and ruthless mother, Lady Jane Grey is born during a time when ambition dictates action. Cousin to Edward VI, Mary I, and Elizabeth I, she is merely a pawn in a political and religious game in which one false step means a certain demise. But Lady Jane has remarkable qualities that help her to withstand the constant pressures of the royal machinery far better than most expect.

    Story

    Great book, I loved several aspects to the writing. First, different points of views from several characters getting to tell their side of the story so to speak. Second; a more story like telling instead of dry facts. I actually got to enjoy the story that delt with the facts, instead of just dry facts. My only real complaint to be honest is if I haden't been very familiar with the Tudor lineage I might have been really confused at parts who was speaking. Because it is audio and so it reads sometimes faster it might get confusing who is speaking or hard to remember which character is now telling their side. So exellent story, just mabye be somewhat familiar with the tudor dynasty first.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Story

    This is not what I was expecting but was far far better. This book was recommened to my mother, from an aunt and then to me from my mother. I have also recommened this book to many people and every single one has loved it. Diana Gabaldon has P.H.D and a large education backround that she brings to the table. The story cut short is of a women named Claire who goes to scotland with her husband back in 1945. Claire travels back in time threw standing stones 200 years and finds herself in the middle of Scottish highlands during a time of war. The book is more or less of her life there with a knowledge of the future and her fight to get home, or does she really want to get home? She finds herself attached to the past by her love for Jamie. It's so well written you actually learn a great deal about the 1700's in Scotland and so much more. If I had to only recommend 5 must reads this would be one.

    Camilla Cream loves lima beans, but she never eats them. Why? Because the other kids in her school don't like them. And Camilla Cream is very, very worried about what other people might think of her. In fact, she's so worried that she's about to break out in...a bad case of stripes!

    I enjoy getting to spend time with my kids and listening to audio books together is one of them. For the younger age groups this is wonderful and one they enjoy listening to over and over again. I would say from about 5-7ish age group. That said I enjoyed it myself, the reader is great. If your looking for a good short read before bed time two thumbs up on this one.

    Patty and Walter Berglund were the new pioneers of old St. Paul - the gentrifiers, the hands-on parents, the Whole Foods generation. Patty was the ideal sort of neighbor, who could tell you where to recycle your batteries and how to get the local cops to do their job. She was an enviably perfect mother and the wife of Walter's dreams. Together with Walter - environmental lawyer, commuter cyclist, total family man - she was doing her small part to build a better world.

    Story

    I have bought many books from Audible in the past years. This was not a good one. I felt the story would never end and it dragged. I assumed being on the Oprah book list and reading some reviews I would really enjoy this. Not so. If you read other reviews you will see similar. I don't suggest it save your point. The author is talented and a good writer, this book just did not work and the same story could have been told in 8 or 9 hours in stead of the more than 20.

    New York Times best-selling author Laurie R. King has won or been nominated for every major award in mystery writing. King's beloved sleuth Mary Russell here attempts to reverse her legendary husband, Sherlock Holmes', greatest failure.

    I happen to really enjoy Laurie King story's of Marry Russell. That said I had listened to The Game First. I was expecting it to be as well written as the Game so I was a little disappointed I think. Still a good listen of you follow the Marry Russell Novels though. It also is nice it gives you some extra back round on Holmes past! I wont give it away but I really enjoyed that bit. Also the reader is excellent.

    As he describes the insatiable curiosity of Calamity's Indian friend No Ears, Annie Oakley's shooting match with Lord Windhouveren, and other highlights of the tour, Larry McMurtry turns the story of a band of hardy, irrepressible survivors into an unforgettable portrait of love, fellowship, dreams, and heartbreak.

    Story

    I have had the pleasuer of listening to several of Larry McMurtry's books. But is is one of my favorites. Part of it is due to the reader Betty Buckley. It feels like the real Calamidy Jane is speaking at times, or even more of an entire cast. She does an amazing job. The story of the Old west and the main Characters of Buffalo Bills Wild West show draw into life here. The book is also written threw the eyes of several people, Jane, the bufflo men, no ears, ect. You feel you know every character. If you enjoy Larry McMurtry this is a must have!
