Carey Nieuwhof wants to help you avoid and overcome life's seven hardest and most crippling challenges: cynicism, compromise, disconnectedness, irrelevance, pride, burnout, and emptiness. These are challenges that few of us expect but we all experience at some point. If you have yet to confront these obstacles, Carey provides clear tools and guidelines for anticipation and avoidance. If you already feel stuck in a painful experience or are wrestling with one of these challenges, he provides the steps you need to find a way out and a way forward into a more powerful and vibrant future.

We all want to live a life that matters. We all want to reach our full potential. But too often we find ourselves overwhelmed by the day-to-day. Our big goals get pushed to the back burner - and then, more often than not, they get forgotten. New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt wants listeners to know that it doesn't have to be this way. In fact, he thinks that this is the year listeners can finally close the gap between reality and their dreams.

This is Michael’s best book yet!! The action plans are so helpful in seeing where you system breaks down, and his motivating approach makes sure you are both intellectually and emotionally engaged to completion! Love it!!

What will you do when the unthinkable happens in your life? Her parents called her Lenya Lion because of her ferocious personality and hair that had been wild and manelike since birth. But they never expected that five days before Christmas, their five-year-old daughter would suddenly go to heaven after an asthma attack. How do you walk out of an emergency room without your daughter?

I love it when the author is the narrator! This is a wonderfully simple book with gripping cultural analogies. Thanks for pulling me closer to Jesus and keeping my head on straight!

This is what may be described as the bad-day book of the Bible. King Solomon held onto the greatest wisdom of his generation, but after all his work, and at the end of his life, he saw all his life's work as "Madness and folly". The wise king would learn that even in these down days there is a plan. There is a purpose. No matter what he felt there was something greater than he could see. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
