We were created by an infinitely creative God to reflect his love and character to the world. One way we do that is by continuing his creative work. In this energizing book, serial entrepreneur and best-selling author Jordan Raynor helps artists, entrepreneurs, writers, and other creatives re-imagine our work as service to God and others, addressing such penetrating questions as: Is my work as a creative really as God-honoring as that of a pastor or missionary? Will what I make today matter in eternity?

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

my husband and I begin listening to this audiobook on our way back from Canada. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that Will Wheaton was the narrator. We has so much to talk about as we listened. We laughed and relived our childhood. We also relived the years that we dated. my husband introduced me to all the geek movies I missed, starting with the Monty Python. The coconut scene was hilarious. thank you to the author for creating such a memorable book and thank you to Wil Wheaton for bringing it to life.

For Brenda Spahn, entrepreneur and businesswoman, wealth was a lifestyle - until a brush with the law threatened to send her to prison. In those dark moments, Brenda made a promise to God.

Spared incarceration, a renewed Brenda glimpsed into the lives of women serving time in one of the worst places in America - the JuliaTutwiler Prison for Women in Wetumpka, Alabama. What she saw prompted a God-inspired vision. With a heart to help and a will that couldn't be crushed, Brenda fought the system and overcame tremendous obstacles to take ex-cons into her home.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

I am so glad I got the audio book! Hearing Tiffany share her story in her voice made an impact. This book was raw! I listened to it on my long car rides. Just me and Tiff, like girlfriends hanging out. Thank you for sharing your struggles. I pray for healing, success, and a man that can hold the title of Mr. Unicorn.

Despite constant efforts to declutter your home, do papers still accumulate like snowdrifts and clothes pile up like a tangled mess of noodles?Japanese cleaning consultant Marie Kondo takes tidying to a whole new level, promising that if you properly simplify and organize your home once, you'll never have to do it again. Most methods advocate a room-by-room or little-by-little approach, which doom you to pick away at your piles of stuff forever.

The most magical thing was when my daughter gave me a note for Christmas that said, "All mom needs is a clean house, a husband, three kids, and a happy life." Best Christmas present! It made me cry. That little gem will be stored with my keepsake items. Oh, and my husband started to tidy without me uttering a word. Magical! --LaTosha
