This is a study book with questions for you to write answers down at the end of each chapter. I’m excited to pick up a physical copy, but I actually returned the audiobook, since I wanted to be able to write down my answers in the book.

In the past, correct spelling, the multiplication tables, the names of the state capitals and the American presidents were basics that all children were taught in school. Today, many children graduate without this essential knowledge. Most curricula today follow a haphazard sampling of topics with a focus on political correctness instead of teaching students how to study.

Honestly, I only got through the first chapter, and that was only by gritting my teeth. The narrator's intonations are monotonous and do not ebb and flow with the words and the passion of the concepts written. Her voice is pleasant, but her reading style is just not for me. Since I think this is a worthwhile read, I'll be reading the paper copy instead.

Many parents suspect their strong-willed child is deliberately trying to drive them crazy. Difficult to discipline and seemingly impossible to motivate, these children present unique, exhausting, and often-frustrating challenges to the those who love them. But strong will is not a negative trait. These same children have firm convictions, high spirits, a sense of adventure - all the makings of a great adult. In this book you'll discover how to channel that determination in positive ways as you build a healthy relationship.

My SWC is only 3, but her firecracker-ness has thrown us for a loop. Traditional disciplining methods did not work, and we knew appeasement was not the answer, either. But we were at a loss for what to do. This book has been so helpful in defining the issues that we see in both our child and in our parenting, and has given us the language and methods to correct and guide us all onto the right path. We have already seen a difference in our child since we began using Cynthia’s methods, and are excited to see God continue this work in us and in our child.

Dave Ramsey shares Biblical wisdom on the legacy we build with our wealth. What does the Bible really say about money? About wealth? How much does God expect you to give to others? How does wealth affect your friendships, marriage, and children? How much is "enough"? There’s a lot of bad information in our culture today about wealth - and the wealthy. Worse, there’s a growing backlash in America against our most successful neighbors, but why?

No matter where you are on the wealthy-poor spectrum, you need to think about the stewardship that you have been given by God over HIS resources. Don't neglect these principles, and enjoy God's blessings as a result!Dave's down-to-earth narration and matter-of-fact way of writing makes for an easy, albeit convicting, book. I'll be buying a physical book for my home library.

Sometimes moms see the never-ending laundry, dirty diapers, and skinned knees as relatively insignificant when compared to activities and callings that seem more important and lasting. But there is eternal value in even the most mundane moments if the great commission informs how we're thinking about all of life, including what it means to be a mom. Tracing motherhood in the story of the Bible and drawing out key implications for moms today, Gloria Furman helps women live out God's story.

Gloria lays out the Gospel very plainly, and draws our attention from the hubbub and mess of our daily lives, to the purpose and overall goal (mission) we have as Christian mothers. It's a great listen, as Sarah Zimmerman is a fantastic narrator. The only drawback is that the book is very light on application and practical living. Would make a great group study tool where a leader could draw out questions/answers of application from the group.

Does your home sometimes feel like just a place to eat, sleep, and change clothes on the way to the next activity? Do you long for "home" to mean more than a place where you stash your stuff? Wouldn't you love it to become a haven of warmth, rest, and joy...the one place where you and your family can't wait to be? There is good news waiting for you in The Lifegiving Home. Every day of your family's life can be as special and important to you as it already is to God.

13 Hours presents, for the first time ever, the true account of the events of September 11, 2012, when terrorists attacked the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. Those men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism, to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.
