Have you ever thought, I'm doing everything I know to do, what's wrong with me? What's it going to take to get God to move on my behalf? If you have, you're not alone. It's a question most Christian ask and yet remain frustrated with the answers they receive. The answer usually go something like this: If you will pray a little longer and with more sincerity, spend more time fasting, read a few more chapters in the Bible every day, and quit wasting time in front of the television, then God will answer your prayers. He's just waiting for you to shape up. In other words, your performance is the problem. The fact is, that couldn't be further from the truth. You've Already Got It! is a book filled with the good news that God's response isn't based on the things you must do; it's based on what Jesus did. As you read, you'll gain the knowledge to trust God. It's only the truth you know that will set you free!
From the award-winning author of I Knew You’d Be Lovely comes an empowering and disarmingly funny memoir about grief and illness—and the wit and wisdom it takes to survive it.As a child, Alethea Black drifts between her father, a brilliant mathematician who is also her best friend, and her mother, a frank and outspoken woman on fire. After her father’s death, Alethea is left unmoored, a young woman more connected to life’s ethereal mysteries than to practical things such as doing laundry or paying taxes.And then, just when life seems to be getting back on track, she’s suddenly racked by crushing fatigue, inexplicable pain, and memory loss. With her grasp on reality fading, and specialist after specialist declaring nothing is wrong, Alethea turns to her own research and desperate home remedies. But even as her frantic quest for wellness seems to lead to confusion and despair, she discovers more about her own strength than she ever could have imagined—and becomes a woman on fire herself.
An Alexa Flash Briefing is basically a quick clip of audio, a "micro-podcast", if you will - like, top news headlines, word of the day, inspirational quote of the day, thought for the day, prayer for the day - something that delivers a quick, concentrated dose of value to the listener in a couple of minutes. Like "Traffic & Weather at the top of the hour" on the radio – quick, short, to-the-point, no fluff, just a concentrated dose of value.Better Than TV News & Podcasts: "It’s Radio… It’s a Podcast… It’s a Flash Briefing!" (by yours truly).The goal is to entertain, educate, engage, enrich or help evolve your listener, who’s probably getting ready in the morning to go to work. So as they’re brushing their teeth, showering, getting ready, making coffee, they can say out loud "Alexa, what’s my flash briefing?" and their Alexa-powered device – whether it’s the Echo Spot, Show, Plus, or other – will start playing all of the flash briefings that they’ve "enabled" in their Alexa app (or Alexa web), one after the other.So it’s similar to a podcast, because you basically subscribe to a bunch of Flash Briefings (just like you subscribe to a bunch of podcasts), and you listen to them one after the other, until you hit stop – or in Alexa’s case, you say "Alexa, stop" or "Alexa, cancel". And to skip the current one and start playing the next flash briefing, you would say "Alexa, skip".But when it comes to the format of Flash Briefings – basically getting quick updates on a whole bunch of things on a whole bunch of topics, all within a short span of time – it can be more powerful than podcasts, because podcasts are not as quick to get into the meat of the content. There are extended intros, small talk, set up talk, announcements and updates, multiple ads or promotions, and so on. So it’s like a "Podcast on Steroids" (your truly, again :-). And because of the short-form nature of Alexa Flash Briefings, as a listener, they know they can expect maximum value (whatever that "value" you’re promising them in your show’s title and description) in minimum time, minus all the fluff.And it’s better than regular cable TV news, because there are no extended commercial breaks, chit-chat, teasers or promos of what’s coming later in the show, and so on.Why Create an Alexa Flash Briefing: I talked about this on Episode #73 of my podcast, titled "Audio and Voice Are The Future, All-In On Audio". Give it a listen at SubscribeMe.fm/73As powerful as video is, Audio can go where Video can NOT go - like when you're driving to work, doing the dishes, in the gym, on a run, walking your dog, cleaning the garage, heck, even when showering!If you've seen any science fiction movie, you have seen a super-smart voice assistant. The Computer from Star Trek, Jarvis in Iron Man. And that's what is coming soon to a world near you. Voice is the most natural and most powerful form of communication. Which is why I believe that audio is going to be one of the most powerful tools of the future.An article from eMarketer.com states, "Not since the smartphone has any tech device been adopted as quickly as the smart speaker." And it goes on to say how they expect the number of US smart speaker users to grow at the rate of 47.9% between 2016 and 2020, and end up around 76.5 million. According to Strategy Analytics, sales of smart speakers could top $23 billion by 2023, or according to another company Global Market Insights, it could reach $30 billion by 2024. And according to Slate.com, "smart speakers, like smartphones, aren’t just about the hardware. They’re about the platform that powers them—in this case, the voice A.I.—and how it shapes users’ behavior.As a content creator, which of these would you rather compete with?5+ Billion YouTube Videos1+ Billion Websites550,000+ Podcasts5,500+ Alexa Flash BriefingsAudio is about to become the future, so get in now.

Fawn Weaver's answer is yes, absolutely, even when one or both partners are strong willed, independent, and opinionated. (She admits to being all three.) In this groundbreaking book, the best-selling author and award-winning marriage blogger asks readers to invest twenty-eight days in learning how to live together without bickering, blame, angry outbursts, or silent treatments. Fawn begins with the startling premise that, contrary to popular opinion, conflict in marriage is not necessary or inevitable. Then she leads readers on a day-by-day journey toward a more peaceful and supportive relationship. Chapter by brief chapter, she offers fresh perspectives and practical strategies for communicating effectively, building understanding, and defusing anger while at the same time nurturing honesty, vulnerability, and mutual support.
