When we are lost in the storms of grief, only God can pierce the darkness. How can a broken, bewildered woman who lost her sister, a brilliant PhD nurse, to suicide, her youngest son to respiratory distress caused by an accidental drug-alcohol interaction, on the night of her brother-in-law´s memorial service, her sister-in-law to cancer, four years to the day after her son´s death, want to get out of bed and live - out loud and in color? Simple. God revealed Himself to her and breathed life back into every nook and cranny of her very being. In Dance with Jesus: From Grief to Grace, author Susan B. Mead shares her personal story of how God came to her in the midst of grief with a display of love, insight and comfort far beyond her expectations. Have you ever held the hand of God? Felt God caress your broken heart? Heard Him speak out loud? Seen Jesus dancing with your lost loved one? Seen your loved one in the holy presence of God - on his mercy seat? Do you want to? In her vibrant, inspiring, and up-close-and-personal style, Susan freely shares how her encounters with God in the midst of overwhelming grief led her to a deeper, more intimate relationship with Him that truly restored her soul. Are you ready to laugh through the tears and dance - with Jesus? Susan B. Mead, a medical technologist with an MBA, spent 22-plus years in the diabetes sector with Johnson & Johnson prior to founding the blog Agog4God.com.

In this hour, before there was language, there was the voice. Today we celebrate the voice. Music journalist Dave Tompkins has written about the long and colorful history of the vocoder in his book How to Wreck a Nice Beach: The Vocoder from World War II to Hip-Hop: The Machine Speaks. He tells Jim Fleming the title comes from what people think the vocoder is saying when it voices the phrase ´´How to recognize speech.´´Next, the contemporary art world was shocked in 2010 when the prestigious Turner prize went to a voice installation, the work of the Scottish artist Susan Philipsz. She tells Anne Strainchamps she started out as a sculptor but was drawn to sound, the voice in particular. Then, singer/songwriter Ben Folds has worked with a wide variety of musicians from Dreamworks to the novelist Nick Hornby. He´s known as a pianist, but he tells To the Best of Our Knowledge producer Doug Gordon that he´s also fascinated with another instrument - the human voice.Finally, if you grew up with television chances are you saw a lot of Dick Cavett.

A Harvard-trained obstetrician-gynecologist, a prominent blogger, and author of the classic How Your Baby Is Born delivers a timely, important, and sure to be headline-making exposé that shines a light on the natural parenting movement and the multimillion-dollar industry behind it. The natural parenting movement praises the virtues of birth without medical interference, staunchly advocates breastfeeding for all mothers, and hails attachment parenting. Once the exclusive province of the alternative lifestyle, natural parenting has gone mainstream, becoming a lucrative big business today. But those who do not subscribe to this method are often made to feel as if they are doing their children harm. Dr. Amy Tuteur understands their apprehensions. ´´Parenting quickly feels synonymous with guilt. And of late there is no bigger arena for this pervasive guilt than childbirth.´´ As a medical professional with a long career in obstetrics and gynecology and as the mother of four children, Tuteur is no stranger to the insurmountable pressures and subsequent feelings of blame and self-condemnation that mothers experience during their children´s early years. The natural parenting movement, she contends, is not helping them raise their children better. Instead it capitalizes on their uncertainty, manipulating parents when they are most vulnerable. In Push Back, she chronicles the movement´s history from its roots to its modern practices, incorporating her own experiences as a mother and successful OB-GYN with original research on the latest in childbirth science. She also reveals the dangerous and overtly misogynistic motives of some of its proponents - conservative men who seek to limit women´s control and autonomy. As she debunks, one by one, the guilt-inducing myths of natural birth and parenting, Dr. Tuteur empowers women to embrace the method of childbirth that is right for them while reassuring all parents that the most important thin... 1.
