If you´d asked me who God is on December 9, the year of my accident, I would have been able to give you a fairly cohesive but theoretical answer. A day later all of that changed. A simple surgery went horribly wrong. Steve Sjogren died on the operating table. He encountered a heavenly world where he felt infinite peace. And then he had to come back - back to a physical reality filled with pain and disability and an endless line of tests. The drama of dying suddenly paled in comparison to the trauma of living. Sjogren could not face this new existence with his same old comfortable understanding of God. ´´I had minimized God,´´ Sjogren says. ´´Somehow, over time, he had become fairly predictable - like he could be outlined, fully grasped, and contained in a neat set of mere ideas. Now I saw that he apparently wasn´t all that impressed with my cool little notebooks.´´ One day in heaven followed by hundreds in agony forged a deeper and stronger faith than Sjogren could have crafted on his own. In Heaven´s Lessons, Sjogren shares his experiences and the life-changing ways they have affected his perspective on success, suffering, and the mysteries of God. 1. Language: English.

Funny stories. Make-you-cry stories. All of them show us something about ourselves and our savior we can never forget. Kids have a way of saying things adults would never say and revealing profound - even biblical - truths in their unfiltered, unedited commentary on the world. In this inspiring audiobook, Jon Guager shares important lessons he learned about God by observing kids. Like the story of Joslynn’s tumble. When Joslynn was camping, she falls down the camper’s stairs to the horror of her watching grandparents. But when she stands up and declares, ´´Let’s try that again´´, Jon Gauger (Grandpa) notices how even though Joslynn had failed at something, she was kissed, hugged, and comforted by her family. Gauger reminds us that this is how God responds to us when we seemed to have failed ´´big time´´. Each anecdote teaches the Christian a familiar truth through a less familiar vehicle, making this giftable audiobook fresh and fun. PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Gauger.

The Truest Things I Know: 5 Simple Lessons for Choosing Love over Fear!: Laurel A Ross
Evernote: 12 Important GTD Evernote Lessons On How To Use Evernote For Getting Things Done: Michael Holmes
How does it feel to be in a high-speed car chase? What is it like to shoot someone? What do cops really think about the citizens they serve? Nearly everyone has wondered what it´s like to be a police officer, but no civilian really understands what happens on the job. 400 Things Cops Know shows police work on the inside, from the viewpoint of the regular cop on the beat - a profession that can range from rewarding to bizarre to terrifying, all within the course of an eight-hour shift. Written by veteran police sergeant Adam Plantinga, 400 Things Cops Know brings the listener into life the way cops experience it - a life of danger, frustration, occasional triumph, and plenty of grindingly hard routine work. In a laconic, no-nonsense, dryly humorous style, Plantinga tells what he´s learned from 13 years as a patrolman, from the everyday to the exotic - how to know at a glance when a suspect is carrying a weapon or is going to attack, how to kick a door down, how to drive in a car chase without recklessly endangering the public, why you should always carry cigarettes, even if you don´t smoke (offering a smoke is the best way to lure a suicide to safety), and what to do if you find a severed limb (don´t put it on ice - you need to keep it dry.) 400 Things Cops Know deglamorizes police work, showing the gritty, stressful, sometimes disgusting reality of life on patrol, from the possibility of infection - criminals don´t always practice good hygiene - to the physical, psychological, and emotional toll of police work. Plantinga shows what cops experience of death, the legal system, violence, prostitution, drug use, the social causes and consequences of crime, alcoholism, and more. Sometimes heartbreaking and often hilarious, 400 Things Cops Know is an eye-opening revelation of what life on the beat is really all about. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Boyett.
