This Christian healing audiobook delves into the negative and downright devastating events that occur in our lives that break our faithful hearts and trample our spirits, but it won’t be man-made wisdom pellets being handed out here. This is a Christian journey to find God in the midst of our sorrow.

I wish I had this book long ago as I discovered my “Jerry” and severed toxic family members. Scriptural guidance keeps condemnation away. This title gives you the tools to identify toxic people and what to do about them. I am grateful to have received this book in exchange for my unbiased review! Great scriptural truth and wisdom here!

In The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel van der Kolk transforms our understanding of traumatic stress, revealing how it literally rearranges the brain’s wiring - specifically areas dedicated to pleasure, engagement, control, and trust. He shows how these areas can be reactivated through innovative treatments including neuro feedback, mindfulness techniques, play, yoga, and other therapies.

As an adult who’s mother was murdered 27 years ago, I can attest to the long term effects of trauma. Having PTSD, anxiety and even intermittent agoraphobia have been long term affects of the traumatic events in my life. This book helps to identify how to target and work through those areas. I certainly feel that an hour with the author would likely help heal any long term wounds one carries around unaware of how to unload them. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to explore the root of trauma and how to overcome the effects of it facing it head on. I will keep this one and register often, as I find it so beneficial to me. I received this title to review and give my unbiased review, greatly thankful for having it!

This book serves three purposes: One, it is my personal journey of soul-exploration through religion, science, & spirituality, two, it is a resource guide for your own soul-experiencing, and three, it is a starting tool-belt for healing two of the biggest earth-consciousness creations: Victimhood and villainhood.

This book was not what I expected based on the title. I found the authors thoughts interesting, but we do not hold the same beliefs about reincarnation and meaning of life. It was more akin to sci-fi than scientific from my perspective. The reading of this title was very well done. I received this audio book free for my unbiased review.

Does your child love listening to Bible stories? Perhaps they find them little dull and predictable? The Boy and the Battle is a re-imagining of the epic battle between the boy David and the giant, Goliath. When listening to this story, children will be able to picture the scene, perhaps imagine themselves as David and understand that this is a real story, about a real child, just like them.

Wow, this audio book changed my life! I never realized how much “stuff” I have that needs to go. I have a lot of items that do not serve any need. If you have a lot of stuff, this book will help you begin to sort through and look at items to understand what they mean, what their purpose is and getting back to basics. Letting go of the extra weight is freedom! I received this audiobook free to give my unbiased review. 💜
