Jo’s mother, Babe, liked to drink, dance, and stay up very late. When the husband she adored went on sales calls, she waited for him in the parking lot, embroidering pillowcases. Jo grew up thinking that the last thing she wanted was to be like her mother. Then it dawned on her that her own happiness was derived in large part from lessons Babe had taught her.Her mother might have had tomato aspic and stewed rhubarb in her fridge while Jo had organic kale and almond milk in hers, but in more important ways they were much closer in spirit than Jo had once thought. At a turbulent time in America, Never Sit If You Can Dance offers uplifting lessons in old-fashioned civility that will ring true with mothers, daughters, and their families. Told with lighthearted good humor, it’s a charming tale of the way things used to be - and probably still should be. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jo Giese.

The story of Jesus is frequently limited to the telling of the babe of Bethlehem who would die on the cross and three days later triumphantly exit his tomb in resurrected glory. Frequently skimmed over or left aside is the story of the Jesus of Nazareth who confronted systemic injustice, angered those in power, risked his life for the oppressed and suffering, and worked to preach and establish the kingdom of God - all of which would lead to his execution on Calvary. In this insightful and moving volume, authors James and Judith McConkie turn to the latest scholarship on the historical and cultural background of Jesus to discover lessons on what we can learn from his exemplary life. Whether it be his intimate interactions with the sick, the poor, women, and the outcast, or his public confrontations with oppressive religious, political, and economic institutions, Jesus of Nazareth - the son of a carpenter, messiah, and son of God - exemplified the way, the truth, and the life we must follow to bring about the kingdom of heaven. 1.

A refreshing and thought-provoking look at athletes whose legacies have been reduced to one defining moment of defeat - those on the flip side of an epic triumph - and what their experiences can teach us about competition, life, and the human spirit. Every sports fan recalls with amazing accuracy a pivotal winning moment involving a favorite team or player - Henry Aaron hitting his 715th home run to pass Babe Ruth, Christian Laettner´s famous buzzer-beating shot in the NCAA tournament for Duke. Yet lost are the stories on the other side of these history-making moments, the athletes who experienced not transcendent glory but crushing disappointment: the cornerback who missed the tackle on the big touchdown, the relief pitcher who lost the series, the world-record holding Olympian who fell on the ice. In Losing Isn´t Everything, famed sportscaster Curt Menefee, joined by best-selling writer Michael Arkush, examines a range of signature disappointments from the wide world of sports, interviewing the subject at the heart of each loss and uncovering what it means - months, years, or decades later - to be associated with failure. While history is written by the victorious, Menefee argues that these moments when an athlete has fallen short are equally valuable to sports history, offering deep insights into the individuals who suffered them and about humanity itself. Telling the losing stories behind such famous moments as the Patriots´ Rodney Harrison guarding the Giants´ David Tyree during the ´´Helmet Catch´´ in Super Bowl XLII; Mary Decker´s fall in the 1984 Olympic 1500m; and Craig Ehlo, who gave up ´´The Shot´´ to Michael Jordan in the 1989 NBA playoffs, Menefee examines the legacy of the hardest losses, revealing the unique path that athletes have to walk after they lose on their sports´ biggest stages. Shedding new light on some of the most accepted scapegoat stories in the sports canon, he also revisits both the Baltimore Colts´ l 1. Language: English. Narrator: Curt Menefee.
