Amazon Says: Filmed in a real shelter with real homeless people, Homeless tells the story of Gosh, a teenage boy lost in the bleak routine of life in a shelter. Every day, from sunup until sundown, Gosh is put out on the streets, unable to return to the shelter until 7pm. During the day, he seeks refuge from the cold in the downtown public library and a local coffee shop. He feels alone and anonymous in a seemingly connected world. Weeks go by and the long days and sleepless nights begin to wear on him, and he becomes increasingly discouraged when he finds it almost impossible to find a job with the shelter as his address. But suddenly his circumstances change for the better, and he finds himself adapting to a new home and new friends and looking forward to a future that he hopes will last. less...

Amazon Says: Full Figured 2 features two stories by authors Alexis Nicole and Trista Russell, giving listeners what they've been asking for -- passionate, empowering stories about big, beautiful women. Symone Davenport is a twenty-two-year-old college senior who has set herself up for a very secure future, but all her achievements feel more like a duty than a labor of love. Her true love is singing R&B. She doesn't believe her plus-size figure could ever be diva material, so she settles for fading into the background in her father's church choir. It takes the help of Jaylen Richards, the handsome new choir director to not only unlock her talent and try to bring her into the spotlight, but to unlock her heart. Janice was never very thin, but the fifty pounds she packed on after her sister's sudden death two years ago sent her way beyond the size 14 she used to be. With a gorgeous face, personality, and brains she isn't lacking friends, but her insecurities about her weight gain get in the way of things reaching the next level with men. Flirting over the phone and via e-mail with Tony is easy, since he's hundreds of miles away, but when business brings him to Janice's Chicago office, she goes out of her way to avoid meeting him face-to-face. She assumes he'll take one look at her and not even remember their conversations. She couldn't be further from the truth, and soon their romance blossoms. In his arms nothing, especially size, matters; however, when lies are uncovered and things come undone, layers of Tony are exposed. Will it reveal a golden pear or a rotten apple? Did he play on her insecurities for his own selfish gain, and is he just more dead weight she will eventually have to lose? less...

Amazon Says: #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, she’s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead. Don’t miss the hourlong Netflix special Brené Brown: The Call to Courage! NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BLOOMBERG Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential. When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work. But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start. Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question:  How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?  In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love. Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. It’s learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It’s why we’re here.” Whether you’ve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you’re new to Brené Brown’s work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership. less...
