I have put together my personal selection of audio books for the working woman who lives in the fast lane. Traffic jam? No worries, bring out your audio book and be happy!
The Book of God by Walter Wangering, Jr.
This is probably my favorite audio book. It is the Bible as a novel told in a way that leaves you wanting more. Beautifully illustrated stories make us feel as if we were living in the moment.
|TNIV Full Bible|
You can’t go wrong with the Word of God! What I like about this selection is the introduction to each book. It is told as a short devotional and each book is read by a different person.
by C.S. Lewis
What an amazing intellect and honest approach to life. It definitely has helped me to understand Christianity in a whole new way.
A Grief Observed by C. S. Lewis
I could feel the pain in his writing and the strength of his character as he shares about his marriage and the death of his beloved wife.
|Developing the Leaders Around You|
by John C. Maxwell
Maxwell gives insight into styles of leadership, what you should model after, and tips for successful team work.
by William P. Young
This is without a doubt one of the best books I have read this past year! As tough as it is for us to ask the hard questions and to try to understand why the righteous suffer, I find at times it is harder to accept that God loves us. God’s love may be the deepest message beautifully written in this fictional novel.
|The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People|
by Stephen Covey
If you struggle with organization and finding time to get things done, this is a good tool in helping you work with a system of important and unimportant items. It is a definite must have for a working woman!
10 Days to More Confident Public Speaking by the Princeton Language Institute and Lenny Laskowski
This was a short book which I completed in three days. Loved it! It has simple and practical tips to help you feel more confident when speaking in front of an audience–be it small or large.
This is an audio book I do for fun. I have taught English/Spanish in the past and I would always tell my students that the best way to learn a new language is by listening and speaking it whether you pronounce it well or not. The more you listen to another language, the more accustomed you ear becomes to the accent and the phrasing until; you become fluent before you even know it. You can find all kinds of languages at any bookstore or iTunes.

If you enjoy writing, this is a great tool to help you sharpen your skills.
I listen to our church choir CD’s and work on vocal training techniques using audio podcasts.
