  • Made to Crave: Satisfying Your Deepest Desire with God, Not Food

    Made to Crave is the missing link between a woman's desire to be healthy and the spiritual empowerment necessary to make that happen. The reality is we were made to crave. Craving isn't a bad thing. But we must realize God created us to crave more of him. Many of us have misplaced that craving by overindulging in physical pleasures instead of lasting spiritual satisfaction.

    "Prefer narration but Lysa, but still a great book."
    Overall

    I love non-fiction, inspirational audios. Having heard another book ready by the author, Lysa, I didn't enjoy Jill's narration by comparison. I like that this is a book I can listen to now and then six months later to hear a different message depending upon where I am in my journey. The first time I heard it, I didn't like it. Now I re-reading (listening) and I'm gleaning some truths that were more hidden the first time around. If you have always worried about your eating and never addressed it either with emotional self-help books or theray, the concepts here will be very awesome and really open your eyes.

    An anthology of over 50 classic children's poems, read by some of our finest actors. Full of fun, excitement, and magic, the poems in this collection are guaranteed to spark the imagination and open up a world of wonder. Favourites from authors such as Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll, and Robert Louis Stevenson are all here, as well as less familiar but nonetheless hugely entertaining poems such as" The Camel's Complaint"and "The Elephant, or The Force of Habit".

  • Necessary Endings: The Employees, Businesses, and Relationships That All of Us Have to Give Up in Order to Move Forward

    While endings are a natural part of business and life, we often experience them with a sense of hesitation, sadness, resignation, or regret. But consultant, psychologist, and bestselling author Dr. Henry Cloud sees endings differently. He argues that our personal and professional lives can only improve to the degree that we can see endings as a necessary and strategic step to something better.

    Would you listen to Necessary Endings again? Why?

    Yes, there are time tested truths here.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love that the AUTHOR is reading the book.


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Necessary Endings?

    That life is full of life cycles/seasons.


    Any additional comments?

    I listened to this when I struggled with work issues after having a baby. I was overcome with guilt about not keeping up with everything as before. This book helped me to let go and see the the "necessary endings" as well as the bright beginnings laying before me. This book can be applied to everyone.

    In this original audio program that will be a must-listen to the millions of You: On a Diet fans, Doctors Roizen and Oz bring their trademark style to the task of motivating and managing listeners as they adopt the 30-minute daily walk regimen at the heart of the YOU fitness philosophy.

    Heads up: The walks are not tracked or cued in the audio. You have to hunt and peck to find the beginning of each walk. Not fun.
