"Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips should be boiled with his own pudding," says Ebenezer Scrooge. Mean old Scrooge despises Christmas until Christmas Eve, when a haunted voice from the past changes his life: overnight! Many know this story but few have experienced the true marvel of the tale.

With scarcely enough food or money for his own family, George Müller (1805-1898) opened his heart and home. Sustained by God's provision, the Müller house "Breakfast Club" of thirty orphans grew to five large houses that ultimately over ten thousand children would call home. George Müller trusted God with a depth rarely seen. His faith and generosity set a standard for Christians of all generations.

The Little Red Hen works hard - all alone - to turn her wheat seed into flour, while the goose gossips, the dog naps, and the cat preens. But when her lazy friends smell the fresh bread baking, they're eager to help her eat it! In this rendition, even the youngest listeners will enjoy the classic folktale about hard work and its tasty reward.

I enjoyed listening to the narrator and story is quite nice it has a good lesson to learn for children and adults alike. However I am partial to the end of the story where the little red hen feeds the bread to her little chicks, because the story shows that she is sharing with those that can't do for themselves.

This provocative audiobook starts with an unlikely interview in which America’s foremost skeptic builds a seemingly persuasive case against the miraculous. But then Strobel travels the country to quiz scholars to see whether they can offer solid answers to atheist objections. Along the way, he encounters astounding accounts of healings and other phenomena that simply cannot be explained away by naturalistic causes. The audiobook features the results of exclusive new scientific polling that shows miracle accounts are much more common than people think.

Morgan Freeman narrates this poignant retelling of the Nativity, weaving together the gospels of Matthew and Luke as it follows Mary and Joseph on their journey to Bethlehem, culminating in the touching events surrounding the birth of Jesus. An awe-inspiring musical score by The Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford, captures all the power and beauty of the very first Christmas.

Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the 10 principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves - and the world - for the better.

We have only started on our development of our country - we have not as yet, with all our talk of wonderful progress, done more than scratch the surface. The progress has been wonderful enough, but when we compare what we have done with what there is to do, then our past accomplishments are as nothing.

I enjoyed this listen very much.I finished it in two days while working around the house. This would be a good book for anyone ,young or older.especially someone who owns their own business or thinking about starting one. The book tells a lot of history for that time period. The narrator had a clear easy to understand and pleasant voice.l will listen to this again. I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
