  • Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace with Marriage

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 30 mins)
    • By Elizabeth Gilbert
    • Narrated By Elizabeth Gilbert
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    At the end of her best-selling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government....

    Nancy says: "Perfect timing"
    "Disappointing, esp after EAT, PRAY, LOVE"
    What did you like best about Committed? What did you like least?

    What could Elizabeth Gilbert have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    don't know

    What aspect of Elizabeth Gilbert’s performance would you have changed?

    seemed like she just wanted another book to sell, not nearly as interesting as other books.

    Do you think Committed needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    • Narrated By Lisa Osteen Comes

    "Whatever difficulties you face," Lisa Osteen Comes encourages readers, "I believe you are made for more." Lisa shares from her own life stories of facing birth defects, limiting labels as a young woman, an unwanted divorce, criminal attack, infertility, and broken dreams. With every story, in every chapter, she delivers biblical truths and practical help for overcoming hardship and loss.

    Carolyn Bowlen says: "Interesting and Inspirational"
    "Very Inspiring!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I can listen to a chapter or 2 on the go and hear faith building principles that keep me centered. Helps me remember that God is our source, not the economy, government, or our employers.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Are Made for More!?

    How she overcame periods of depression and anxiety.

    Have you listened to any of Lisa Osteen Comes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Have listened to her messages at Lakewood Church, and mp3s. She is very humble, down-to-earth, and practical.

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

    How the babies the adopted were so perfect for their family.

    his calm, placid demeanor, he's a humble man, despite his success.
