  • Power Thoughts: 12 Strategies for Winning the Battle of the Mind

    Joyce Meyer has a knack for coining phrases - her fans call them "Joyceisms" - and one of her best loved is "Where the mind goes, the man follows."This was the basis for Battlefield of the Mind, and in her latest book, Meyer provides "power thoughts," bringing the reader to a new level of ability to use the mind as a tool to achievement. In Power Thoughts, she outlines a flexible program to turn thoughts into habits, and habits into success. Nobody has more of a "can-do" attitude than Joyce Meyer. Now you can, too.

    Story

    **I would not purchase an audiobook narrated by this person again.**
    The narrator reads very very slowly and her annunciation is totally unnatural. I honestly had the book on 2x speed and it was more bearable to listen to.
    This book was encouraging. I have a real problem with negative thinking, and it has helped me reevaluate my thinking.
    I disagree with her presentation of prosperity though. God calls us to trust in him for what we need and them to be content, but that we should ultimately focus on heavenly things. She overemphasized material things.
    Her intent is good, but the theology seems a bit shallow and focused on temporal things rather than eternal.

    "But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." Matthew 6:20

    This book encourages readers to see strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies in their devotional approaches to God, and thus learn how to improve their devotional, quiet-time, and personal-worship life with God.

    Story

    Gary Thomas is a very enthusiastic author and reader. He's very easy to listen to.

    The book itself was so helpful. Not only did it help me identify my own "spiritual temperaments", but it also encouraged me to pursue other ways of connecting with God. This book was great for someone seeking to deepen their relationship with God.

    I think one could mistakenly interpret this book as attempting to limit experience with God to one or two ways, but the author encourages readers to relate with Him in ways that might be foreign. He explains that Jesus had ALL of the spiritual temperaments - to really be like Christ, we should challenge ourselves to relate with God in new ways.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Easy to understand and entertaining. It was exactly what I expected to be. Not a challenging or life changing story, but lots of fun!

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    It was often hard to hear the end of her sentences. The story was alright, but not fantastic. I'm not entirely sure what she was going for, and I'm not sure she was either. She came off a bit self-absorbed, but really what else should I expect from someone talking about herself? Maybe I'm just not the autobiography type. Meh.

  • Sacred Marriage: What If God Designed Marriage to Make Us Holy More Than to Make Us Happy?

    What if God's primary intent for your marriage isn't to make you happy...but holy? And what if your relationship isn't as much about you and your spouse as it is about you and God? Sacred Marriage invites you to view your marriage in a new and different light - as a spiritual discipline, a means whereby you can come to know God more fully and intimately.

    Story

    I listened a chapter of this book each day on the way to and from work. Gary Thomas is interesting and easy to follow. His book isn't full of happy fluff, but rather a practical examination of God's real intention for marriage. He asks us to fulfill our unique rolls in marriage without expectation, as God intended.
