Popular national radio host Julie Roys rejects both fundamentalist caricature and feminist distortion to reveal God´s amazingly relevant and compelling vision for women, showing them how to redeem their feminine souls and become all God designed them to be. Christian women today feel torn between the demands of motherhood, career, and ministry - and by a church that gives them conflicting ideas of what it means to be a woman. In Redeeming the Feminine Soul: God´s Surprising Vision for Womanhood, popular national radio host Julie Roys reveals the stunning truth that no one else is talking about: Women are destroying themselves. Internalizing society´s devaluation of the feminine, some women are killing their own natural impulses to pursue a feminist ideal that bears no relation to God´s good design. Other women struggle to conform to a fundamentalist feminine caricature that requires denying their full humanity and gifting. Defying both feminists and fundamentalists, Julie Roys reveals God´s true, affirming, and compelling vision for women, showing them how to reclaim what is uniquely feminine and become healthy, balanced women of God. 1.

You Can Do Anything: The Surprising Power of a ...

In a tech-dominated world, the most needed degrees are the most surprising: the liberal arts. Did you take the right classes in college? Will your major help you get the right job offers? For more than a decade, the national spotlight has focused on science and engineering as the only reliable choice for finding a successful postgrad career. Our destinies have been reduced to a caricature: learn to write computer code or end up behind a counter, pouring coffee. Quietly, though, a different path to success has been taking shape. In You Can Do Anything, George Anders explains the remarkable power of a liberal arts education - and the ways it can open the door to thousands of cutting-edge jobs every week. The key insight: curiosity, creativity, and empathy aren´t unruly traits that must be reined in. You can be yourself as an English major and thrive in sales. You can segue from anthropology into the booming new field of user research, from classics into management consulting, and from philosophy into high-stakes investing. At any stage of your career, you can bring a humanist´s grace to our rapidly evolving high-tech future. And if you know how to attack the job market, your opportunities will be vast. In this audiobook you will learn why resume writing is fading in importance and why ´´telling your story´´ is taking its place. You will learn how to create jobs that don´t exist yet and to translate your campus achievements into a new style of expression that will make employers´ eyes light up. You will discover why people who start in eccentric first jobs - and then make their own luck - so often race ahead of peers whose postcollege hunts focus only on security and starting pay. You will be ready for anything. 1. Language: English. Narrator: George Anders. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/hach/003322/bk_hach_003322_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Diet Cults: The Surprising Fallacy at the Core ...

From the national best-selling author of Racing Weight, Matt Fitzgerald exposes the irrationality, half-truths, and downright impossibility of a ´´single right way´´ to eat and reveals how to develop rational, healthy eating habits. From ´´the Four-Hour Body´´ to ´´Atkins,´´ there are diet cults to match seemingly any mood and personality type. Everywhere we turn, someone is preaching the ´´one true way´´ to eat for maximum health. Paleo Diet advocates tell us that all foods less than 12,000 years old are the enemy. Low-carb gurus demonize carbs, and then there are the low-fat prophets. But they agree on one thing: There is only one true way to eat for maximum health. The first clue that this is a fallacy is the sheer variety of diets advocated. Indeed, while all of these competing views claim to be backed by science, a good look at actual nutritional science suggests it is impossible to identify a single best way to eat. Fitzgerald advocates an agnostic, rational approach to eating habits based on one´s own habits, lifestyle, and genetics and body type. Many professional athletes already practice this ´´Good Enough´´ diet, and now we can too - and ditch the brainwashing of these diet cults for good.

A groundbreaking look at the connection between germs and mental illness and how we can protect ourselves. Is it possible to catch autism or OCD the same way we catch the flu?

Ask a member of the middle class what it takes to become wealthy, and she´ll tell you it takes a bold new idea. Tell that to a self-made millionaire, and he´ll vehemently disagree. What explains the difference in mind-set between the self-made wealthy and the rest of us? It´s not what you think, as journalist and entrepreneur Lewis Schiff convincingly illustrates through groundbreaking research and compelling storytelling. For decades, the middle class has believed that the road to success meant working hard and playing by rules passed down from previous generations. But as the 2008 economic crisis has made clear, the old rules no longer apply. While household net worth has declined for most, self-made business leaders - entrepreneurially minded individuals born into the middle class who have accumulated significant wealth - have prospered. What makes these have-mores financially successful while the rest of us have never felt more uncertain about our professional and financial futures? In Business Brilliant, Lewis Schiff reveals the eye-opening findings from a national survey of middle-class workers and self-made millionaires, offering practical guidance to show the rest of us what America´s self-made rich already know. Through his research, he holds a mirror to our most commonly held beliefs about success and then reveals the truth about how wealth is really created by surveying the truly wealthy. In doing so, he explodes the conventional wisdom and identifies the distinct principles practiced by individuals who may or may not be any smarter than the rest of the population but seem to understand instinctively how money is made. They don´t employ business-as-usual practices; they adopt a ´´Business Brilliant´´ mind-set. The book illustrates how these self-made millionaires choose their careers, negotiate to win, and leverage social networks to accumulate their wealth. Schiff argues that it is the synergy behind seven uncommon practic 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Morgan. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/harp/003340/bk_harp_003340_sample.mp3.
