Is it okay to enjoy this life? Watching a gorgeous sunset. Sharing a laugh with a friend. Tasting a sun-ripened strawberry. Each day is full of opportunities for you to savor the countless gifts the creator has given. But do you feel free to delight in God´s abundant gifts, or is your joy sometimes distorted by guilt, fear of idolatry, or simply an overwhelming awareness of sin´s effects on this world? Trillia Newbell explains how we often miss opportunities to participate in God´s divine delight because we´re discouraged, fixated on selfish fulfillment, or paralyzed by guilt. Enjoy serves as an encouraging reminder of God´s gracious gifts and also challenges women to view all of these gifts - from relationships and careers to food and sex - as reasons to rejoice in the Lord and grow in our understanding and appreciation of who he is. This thought-provoking book invites you to explore the truth of God´s word and discover how to nurture daily a spirit of gratitude and deep satisfaction. Enjoy will open your eyes and your heart to the freedom of fully enjoying all God has given us! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Renee Pitts.

Many Christian women wouldn’t identify themselves as ´´feminists.´´ However, according to Courtney Reissig, we’ve all been influenced by the feminist movement in profound ways, unconsciously reflecting our culture´s notions about what it means to be a woman. Helping listeners navigate a wise path in the midst of a confused world, this book chronicles the journey of a wife, mom, and successful writer as she recounts her journey from ´´accidental feminism´´ to a biblical view of womanhood. Filled with wise insights related to relationships, body image, and women´s roles in the home and the Church, this thought-provoking book will help Christian women carefully consider these important issues. 1.

This Edwardian social comedy explores love and prim propriety among an eccentric cast of characters assembled in an Italian pensione and in a corner of Surrey, England. A charming young Englishwoman, Lucy Honeychurch, faints into the arms of a fellow Britisher when she witnesses a murder in a Florentine piazza. Attracted to this man, George Emerson - who is entirely unsuitable and whose father just may be a Socialist - Lucy is soon at war with the snobbery of her class and her own conflicting desires. Back in England, Lucy is courted by a more acceptable, if stifling, suitor, and soon realizes she must make a startling decision that will decide the course of her future: she is forced to choose between convention and passion. The enduring delight of this tale of romantic intrigue is rooted in E. M. Forster´s colorful characters, including outrageous spinsters, pompous clergymen and outspoken patriots. Written in 1908, A Room with a View is one of Forster´s earliest and most celebrated works. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Steven Crossley.

Scott Schuman just wanted to take photographs of people on the street who looked great. This book is an anthology of Scott´s favourite shots from around the world. It includes photographs of well-known fashion figures as well as those shots of the anonymous passerby whose imagination and taste delight the viewer.
Black and white photography is considered by some to be more difficult than color photography, simply because color ceases to be an element in the finished product. However, it is still an element to be considered while shooting, because color affects what greys, whites, and blacks you get as a result. Black and white can make your photos much simpler, pared down to the basics. This can make photographs appear more serious or scary, or even take away considerations of decade or century. Photographs also need different development in post, as well as different considerations for grain. Here´s a preview of what you´ll learn: Deciding whether or not to shoot in black and white: there is no right or wrong answer; they can be for aesthetic consideration or to make an image less distracting. Tonal differences and contrast: I explain why color is still important, because the color content of a scene will affect your tonal ranges. Being technically competent: This tip explains the usage of different ISOs and how black and white grain differs from color grain. Pay attention to the light: Light is very important in any photo, but here, it can help change the mood of a black and white photo very quickly. Texture: Texture becomes even more important in black and white photos than it does in color, because you have one less element to work with. Composition: Refer to this tip for a short refresher on the elements of composition, and how you can use them to make your photos stronger. Headshots: This tip explains the pros and cons of shooting headshots in black and white, as well as things to consider when doing so. Post Processing: Learn how to control your color channels and contrast in reference to black and white photos. Creating almost black and white photos: Learn how to purposefully create such images to delight viewers at their subtlety. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Edmondson.
