  • Unglued: Making Wise Choices in the Midst of Raw Emotions

    God gave us emotions to experience life, not destroy it! Lysa TerKeurst admits that she, like most women, has had experiences where others bump into her happy and she comes emotionally unglued. We stuff, we explode, or we react somewhere in between. What do we do with these raw emotions? Is it really possible to make emotions work for us instead of against us? Yes, and in her usual inspiring and practical way, Lysa will show you how.

    At 17, Claire Trevelyan, daughter of Viscount St. Ives, was expected to do nothing more than pour an elegant cup of tea, sew a fine seam, and catch a rich husband. Unfortunately, Claire's talents lie not in the ballroom, but in the chemistry lab, where things have a regrettable habit of blowing up. When her father gambles the estate on the combustion engine and loses, Claire finds herself down and out on the mean streets of London. But being a young woman of resources and intellect, she turns fortune on its head. It's not long before a new leader rises in the underworld, known only as the Lady of Devices...

  • The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work

    Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work.

    Shawn Achor uses humor, data studies and experience to share 7 key actions we can take to increase our happiness. Fabulous book, easy to read and very insightful.

    Not overwhelming in data, Shawn finds that perfect balance in using data to support key principles AND giving you tips and tricks early on in the book. So many books wait until the last 1/3 of the book to give you the "what to do about it!" Shawn spends 3/4 of the book telling you how to create happiness.

    This little book is filled with the gems showing Kimmel at his best. These punchy, often humorous stories are drawn from Kimmel's experience as well as others who have encountered life with all its bumps and roadblocks, yet who still found a way to soar above it all. As the title suggests, life seldom turns out to be what we hoped for. Everyone encounters realities that would pull us down. But Kimmel tells listeners how Plan B can be a powerful new launch pad to achieve lifelong dreams

    What an inspiring book about accepting God's 'plan b'. Filled with biblical and more recent real life stories, this book provides hope for so many situations and how ordinary people accepted extraordinary & unplanned changes in their lives.

    Extremely encouraging and helps the reader to see how the events making up a 'plan b' in their life can be better than anything we could have imagined!

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    2nd Jane Yellowrock Book. Enjoyed this one as much as the first in the series. Delve a little more deeply into the characters of Jane, Molly and the New Orleans cast. A love triangle and lots of action to keep a girl on the edge of her seat. I looked forward to getting back to the book to find out what happens next. Continuing to enjoy the series. Really enjoy Khristine as narrator.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Listened to this with my 13 year old and we both couldn't wait to get back into the car and hear the next portion of the story.

    Adam Brown was and incredible man: his life a shining example of how a good kid can go wrong as well as Jesus' redemption. A brave man and his supportive and loving family share the ups and downs for a SEAL's life.

    Incredibly inspiration story... so glad we had the opportunity to listen to this together. Thank you, Brown family, for sharing your story with us!

    The Zombie War came unthinkably close to eradicating humanity. Max Brooks, driven by the urgency of preserving the acid-etched first-hand experiences of the survivors from those apocalyptic years, traveled across the United States of America and throughout the world, from decimated cities that once teemed with upwards of 30 million souls, to the most remote and inhospitable areas of the planet.

    Most Christian women live with a deep sense that they can't seem to get things right, that if only they could be a little better, life would straighten out. Through her own personal hardships, Sheila Walsh has learned that the Christian life is not about getting things right or back to "normal." She writes, "Christ comes not to get us out of our difficulties but to live in us through them." She wants to show women that God has a stunningly beautiful moment of redemption for them that leads to a lifetime of peace and joy.
