Catholic new-media personality and best-selling author Lisa M. Hendey is fueled by a lifelong passion for her faith. In The Grace of Yes, she guides listeners through pivotal moments of her journey and the eight virtues that have helped her - and will help listeners - learn how to say yes to God. Beloved Catholic blogger Lisa Hendey explores eight spiritual virtues that she believes are foundational to the Christian life. In opening windows to pivotal moments of her own spiritual journey, she helps listeners learn about belief, generativity, creativity, integrity, humility, vulnerability, saying no, and starting over, and shows how these virtues lead to generous living and the ability to joyously say yes to God. Hendey reflects candidly on real-life struggles: the identity adjustment of leaving a blossoming career to become a stay-at-home mom; the temptation of Divahood as her online celebrity grew; the freedom and opportunities of empty-nest status versus the middle-aged body's pull to slow down; her encounters with spiritual community during treatment for cancer; and the contrast between the profound lingering grief she confronted at a Rwandan genocide memorial and the astounding willingness of survivors there to forgive. Listeners encounter Hendey's own struggles and successes while soaking up her characteristic warmth and good advice. Hendey provides questions for personal reflection and a prayer to close the exploration of each virtue. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa M. Hendey.

When my manager assigns me the task of finding a new wake-up call service for our CEO, I think, how hard can this be? Answer: practically impossible. It turns out that no wake-up call company in the world will take him on as a client. They’ve all had enough of his surly personality. So, in an effort not to lose my job, I secretly start making the calls myself, every day at 4:30 am sharp. OMG yes, you read that right - four freaking thirty in the morning. Here's a confession: I’m not the nicest wake-up-call girl at that hour. Hello! Who wakes up before the roosters are even crowing? Luckily, he doesn’t seem to mind my get-your-ass-out-of-bed attitude.Day by day, we’re becoming closer, and the calls start turning hot...like pay-by-the-minute hot and oh-so-wild. Snuggled under the covers with the moonlight streaming through the windows, we divulge our secrets to each other, but the one thing that he can never find out is that the sexy vixen who wakes him up every morning is just the lowly assistant who wears frumpy dresses. I can only imagine his disappointment.Now, he wants to take me out on a date and he’s scouring Manhattan to find me. He’s an overachieving billionaire bent on a mission. How much longer can I keep up this charade? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Neva Nevarre, Jason Clarke. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/161738/bk_acx0_161738_sample.mp3.

Volume 2 of Parerga and Paralipomena has a very different character from Volume 1. There are, in total, 31 Essays, 24 of which are presented here. The range of topics is very varied, opening with 'On Philosophy and Its Method' and including 'On Pantheism', 'On Ethics', 'On Jurisprudence', 'On Men of Learning', 'On Thinking for Oneself', 'On Religion' and 'The Vanity of Existence'. Quite a few open windows on to the personality of Schopenhauer himself - for example, he praises dogs as companions, argues that animals should be chloroformed before slaughter: animal welfare was very much in his sights. He inveighs against useless indulgence in luxury: 'the most effective way of alleviating human misery would be to diminish luxury, or even abolish it altogether.' A thinker at home with his thoughts, he remarks with a touch of resigned humour: 'The pen is to thought what the stick is to walking, but one walks most easily without a stick, and thinks most perfectly when no pen is at hand. It is only when a man begins to get old that he likes to make use of a stick and his pen.'His writings range widely over the international intellectual and cultural spectrum. There are numerous references to Eastern thought - especially Buddhism and Brahmanism as translations into European languages from Pali and Sanskrit gathered force during Schopenhauer's active life. He clearly found himself comfortable in this body of thought, often comparing it favourably with the Western Judaic-Christian heritage. As always he makes liberal use of quotations and footnotes and these have been translated and incorporated into the main text for this recording. For Leighton Pugh, who has now recorded the main body of Schopenhauer's work for Ukemi Audiobooks, spending many days in the studio with this hugely influential figure has been like 'training at altitude.' He remarked that the time spent with the varied and accessible essays in Parerga and Paralipom 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leighton Pugh.

The face of Microsoft and a man now worth $92.3 billion, Bill Gates has a lot to teach us about hard work, success, kindness, unkindness, ruthlessness, tenacity, intelligence, and philanthropy - more so than might be apparent from looking at the easygoing, oft-smiling Gates. For under that geeky and very unintimidating exterior lies a cunning businessman, a cutthroat competitor, and an arrogant genius set on doing anything for success. Now, while Apple may be ahead of Microsoft in valuation and popularity, and even though Windows phones aren't winning any Global Mobile Awards in the “Best Device” category, Gates has left quite an impression on the tech world and consumers alike - even for those who are diehard iOS or Android users, the types who favor Macs over PCs, and the now more numerous quantities of people who favor Chrome or Firefox over the now meme-worthy Internet Explorer. So, why write this? Bill Gates hasn't been the CEO of Microsoft for years and the chairman for more than four. He is very active in philanthropy, but at this point, he has largely embraced retirement over working. And who can blame the guy? He could have retired years ago, but he chose to keep working on fortifying his technological empire as well as devoting more time to charity work. Again, if anyone deserves full retirement, it is Bill Gates. But now that Gates has taken a lesser role and has transitioned away from the spotlight, it's as good a time as any to commemorate all that he has accomplished, and what lessons he can teach us about success and a life well lived. Now is as good a time as any to try and understand how a geeky kid (said with the utmost respect) from Seattle became such an ambitious and bold revolutionary in the tech world. I will do so by pointing out a few facets that I think are the most important parts of Gates' career and personality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis.

In a sartorial follow-up to her hilarious memoir in stories, Fat Girl Walking, Internet personality Brittany Gibbons once again deep dives into the world of the plus size woman, this time chronicling her love/hate (but mostly hate) relationship with fashion. From Pinterest boards and Instagram posts to shop windows and ad campaigns, fashion is everywhere. We shop and dress for practical reasons like job interviews or to make a good impression at the board meeting. We shop and dress for more adventurous reasons - for dates, to woo a lover, to catch someone's eye. Clothes are armor for women, and we wrap a lot of meaning in what we choose to wear. As plus-size spokesmodel and blogger Brittany Gibbons knows, what we choose to wear is especially important, and especially emotional, for curvy women. This isn't only because curvy women feel underrepresented and underserved by the fashion world. For the curvy woman who struggles with feelings of self-worth and a lack of confidence, the feeling of "why bother" can come crashing in. You can't help but think, Wouldn't leggings and a slouchy sweater just be easier? Especially when we, like every other woman on the planet, are facing greater, real-life obstacles like raising kids, attending college, keeping your marriage together, paying bills, and a myriad of other daily struggles. Everyone has those days where they hate their body, they hate their clothes, but self-confidence and strength can come from a great outfit. Brittany is determined to help women, curvy and otherwise, embrace fashion and all the bumps and lumps that come with it. In this "overdue love letter" to her body, Brittany delves into the hilarity and the humility of her quest to find her own personal style - to break out of a rut of maternity underwear and men's undershirts once and for all. From wardrobe malfunctions to fashion advice to mom bodies and the perfect pose, The Clothes Make the Girl (Look Fat)?/i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amy McFadden.
