We’re always seeking it - the freedom to finally be happy, to finally experience the peace we know is possible. This meditation is an opportunity to remember we needn’t always be looking elsewhere for our happiness, our serenity. We’ve a joy deep within that’s always present, always accessible to us, if we can only lighten the burdens of the world to feel it. I invite you to join me in a thoughtful guided meditation to drop in and experience, even just for this half hour, your authentic joy.

Wow! This is an amazing guided meditation. Jeanne Pilgrim Mayo is the narrator and her voice is perfect for the guided meditation. My life is filled with negative thinkers. I can become very drained with all the negativity that is in my daily life. This meditation is a wonderful 30 minute relaxation with a chance for recharging your positivity. Beautiful affirmations and helping you to recapture a place in your life that was filled with joy and positivity. I was gifted (and what a gift) this audio book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

The book of Proverbs is one of the wisdom books in Jewish and Christian history. Bible readers love this book of compact instruction. Yet many people do not read these Proverbs collected by Solomon and others. This little book is a guide to reading the Book of Proverbs.

I was gifted this audio book with the understanding that I would leave an honest review. A Fool's Journey Through Proverbs is not your normal bible study guide. This journey is filled with the author's life experiences. I found much of what Carole writes as having been true for me too, I love that she says to choose a bible that speaks to you and that you understand. I have said this to so many but I have been too far to many churches that preach that only one version is the truth. So said that man feels he knows more than God. Kevin Gisi narrates this book and does a good job.

Walt and his muttley crew get involved in yet another adventure. This time Walt and his honey end up with a cat. I loved the interaction between Walt and the cat. Not being a cat person I totally related to his treatment by the cat. This was a cute addition to the story line. Once again George Kuch is the narrator again he is wonderful. I don't think I could listen to this book read by anyone else. In fact I read this book on my kindle a few months ago and in my head I heard George's voice :-)

This is book 3 in the Happy Tails Dog Walking Series. I thought this book was light and entertaining. I liked that Andrew had less of a presence in this book. I did think the book was more enjoyable then book 2. Machelle Williams is the narrator and she also narrated book 1 and 2. She does a wonderful job. For me she kept me listening.

Wow! Let me say I loved this audiobook. Judy Penz Sheluk has spun a web that gets you caught from the first few words. I found myself wanting to listen to more and more because I loved the story and the narrator. Claira Jordyn narrates this audible book and she is wonderful. Her voice was perfect for developing this story. Judy I hope you write more in this series.
Callie is the main character and she is someone I would like to meet in real life. In fact all the characters in this book seem very real. I was gifted this audiobook by the author with the understanding that I would leave an honest review.

Book 5 in the Daley Buzz Mystery. I liked this book but I really missed the interaction with her dog Snickerdoodle he is mentioned a few time but not really a part of the story. I did think that the interaction between Sabrina and her boyfriend was much more real in this book. I love that the characters are growing and we are getting to know them more with each book. I was happy to see that the murder of Sabrina's sister Jessica is going to be put to rest. Lisa Beacon once again does a great job of narrating this audio book.
