If you want to know the temperature of your spiritual life, look at the thermostat setting on your prayer life. Prayer is the most misunderstood and neglected aspect of the Christian life. It has been estimated that most Christians pray three to five minutes a day. Compare that to the time many spend complaining, and you'll gain insight into the spiritual and emotional condition of our day.

Walter Mosley is in New York solving 2 crimes and I was engrossed from beginning to end. We got to see the life of police officer King and his family. I totally enjoyed the narration of this title it was so passionate that we as listeners could really get into the story and feel what each character was going through.

Sarita Saint's first wedding anniversary is spent searching for her husband, Ray. While their marriage may not be picture perfect, Sarita is certain Ray would never leave her. She fears foul play. But the truth is much more mundane yet devastating. He left, without a word, without an explanation.

As the world turns and keeps on turning so does the lives of the characters throughout this trilogy.
Ray made a decisions at an early age and that decision was the catalyst for all things moving forward. But to find out more than twenty years later that possibly the decision made might not have been the right one becomes too much to forget about. But as the reader continues to read you begin to wonder what if it was the right decision but the delivery was off. Ex-Ray is the story of first love, do you remember your first love? Are you both still together?
I'm not going to tell you if Sarita and Ray stayed in love or how their story ends in Book two, but I will say love is a battlefield and a playground.
Ray is Sarita’s first and in a specific way Sarita is his first. Here’s the thing about first loves we'd like to believe, you will always love them, they will stay with you forever; and first love, last love...umm
Robinson did a great job narrating this story of love and the possibility of second chances. The story line flows and the supporting characters help Ray & Sarita advance in the story. It was amazing to hear this author narrate for all characters and pull it off without a hitch. Some books I've listened to a female author was not able to pull off other characters but Robinson did an excellent job and you can tell she enjoyed it.
This is one trilogy I’m totally excited about after reading Book One I couldn’t wait for Book Two, now Book Three com'on..

Recently this book kept popping up in my life, first I kept seeing it on Amazon, then when I searched for books about fear this one was in my search results then the Holy Spirit placed it directly in my path no doubt about it, so I said ok Lord You win.
Guess what this is the book I need to read for such a time as this.
A confused mind, doubt, wavering, negative self talk, two minds or double minded this book is for you.
I never would've thought I was amongst the people struggling with negative self talk but here I sit.
Thank you Lord for equipping Mrs. Meyers

I was skeptical about this listen, because I thought I would focus more on the thing I am familiar with in the bible instead of the focus being on task with the narrator. I was pleasantly surprised when I was able to stay with the narrator.
I chose this listen because it is my desire to remain in the word and KNOW the story of Jesus. This was a huge help, I heard things I missed while reading.
So glad for this purchase I listen over and over.

Sometimes you can begin a book and immediately know it is not the time in your life to read it. But then you pick up Simple Prayer and you know it's the right book and the right time.
It was a pleasure to hear Mrs. Meyers daughter read this book. I enjoy when family works together in the Kingdom. Her pace and tone was good.
I received soooooo many nuggets from this listen I need a paper copy of the book. From asking God to teach you how to pray to explaining what prayer is Meyers shares her own experiences with prayer and what worked and didn't.
An amazing, resource, tool and a fantastic listen. We really need to KISS
