In this small audiobook, through letters and conversations, Brother Lawrence simply and beautifully explains how to continually walk with God - not from the head but from the heart. Brother Lawrence left the gift of a way of life available to anyone who seeks to know God's peace and presence; that anyone, regardless of age or circumstance, can practice - anywhere, anytime. Brother Lawrence also left the gift of a direct approach to living in God's presence that is as practical today as it was three hundred years ago.

This modern morality tale by gifted writer and speaker Andy Andrews teaches seven fundamental strategies for creating a successful life. Much like the best-selling books by Og Mandino, this unique narrative is a blend of entertaining fiction, allegory, and inspiration. Storyteller Andy Andrews gives a front-row seat for one man's journey of a lifetime. David Ponder has lost his job and the will to live.

Great read. Great story line. Great voiceover character work. This book will challenge the mind to rethink our plot in life. As I like to say, "Life happens." The key to a success fulfillment and purpose is tied directly to our outlook and response to life's happenings. The Traveler's Gift is an engaging and masterful composition.

Great tool for relationship success and understanding proper and necessary hierarchy in terms of leadership success when interpersonal, family, friends, & business are in their proper place. It starts from within. This book is a great read for the sound minded teachable reader/listener. I'm not sure it will radiate with the narcissist, neurotic, addict, sociopath, etc. but it might.

Great for maximizing business relationships and leadership skills that foster successful growth and authentic fulfillment.

You have a good idea but can't convince your peers of its merit. You crafted a groundbreaking strategy, but the teamtrudges on in the same old way. Certain people move forward in their career while you seem to be stuck. If this describes you or someone you know, the problem is not the quality of what you have to offer. The problem is how you connect with people to create the results you desire. Here, John Maxwell takes listeners through the Five Connecting Principles and the Five Connecting Practices of top-notch achievers.

This is a masterpiece of life changing life giving information. A must for any and every one.
I will dissect over and over again as the work to be done isn't done in one quick listen, one swoop. It's a work of progress, dedication and time.
The tools provided by Myss in this presentation can produce powerful and effective results. Self-Esteem is chopped full of practical guidance to accomplish great things.
Thank you, Carolyn Myss, for listening to spiritual guidance and the inner voice that led you to be a conduit of such great healing to so many.

Gratitude is a choice. If we fail to chose it, by default we choose ingratitude. And once allowed into the heart, ingratitude does not come by itself but with a lot of other seedy companions that only succeed in stealing joy. To not choose gratitude - daily and deliberately - is more costly than we usually realize.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss does a masterful job of communicating the many facets of the jewel we call gratitude. Life changing. We grossly underestimate the power, reaches and influence of our hearts attitude, gratitude being a powerful one. We either extend and attract positive or negative energetic vibrations that are very real and powerful. The spirit of gratitude is one that is there for the taking; there for the choosing. It enriches both the giver and the receiver.

The prayer that Jesus gave his disciples as a model, commonly called "The Lord's Prayer", asks that God forgive us as we forgive others. That's a really scary thought! God forgiving us as we do? Nancy Leigh DeMoss explains how forgiving like God is a choice that frees us from the burdens of bitterness, anger, and isolation. If you struggle with long-held hurts, God's truth and Nancy's wisdom offer help and healing for you.

Amazing, empowering, and life-altering information, and perspective. Important to listen and learn with discernment as the elements of the reality that evil powers are also at work in the unseen realms of our reality is completely overlooked and attributed to our own power of choice. There in lies, however, the evil destructive lies we chose to embrace. Thus influencing our energy (positive, negative, indifferent), and even our health.
As a Christian and degree in Biblical Studies, Carolyn Myss, communicates truths mixed with contradictions to religions in general. It's wise to educate ones self in the many ideologies and religious beliefs in the world we live. My only caution would be that readers be very grounded when venturing into the studies of humanism, new age, etc. Having said that, there's insights that for me, revealed weaknesses in the modern day culture of Christianity, not that Christ ever changed, but we as a people need to rise up and be the representatives of Christ that accurately portray Him which is part of the victorious life we've been called to live, i.e. Peace that surpasses understanding in both the good and bad, forgiveness, gratitude, the fruits of the Spirit, pursuing characteristics of the greatest gift, which is Love.
