When a massive pileup on an Arizona highway caused Valerie Paters and her Jeep to be entombed beneath a semi-truck in a blinding snowstorm, it seemed certain that her life would soon end. Once extracted from the mangled metal, and suffering from massive injuries, Valerie was hospitalized and placed on life support while doctors waited to harvest her organs. But Valerie was more alive than she had ever been. As she stood in the radiant presence of Jesus, He wrapped her into himself, assuring her of his love and of the promise that heaven is only a breath away. Heaven Is a Breath Away is a thrilling first-hand account of the home that awaits Christians when they draw their last breath here on earth. With open arms, Christ welcomes to heaven those who belong to him. Rarely has this vision been told in such exquisite detail. It will undoubtedly comfort those who have lost loved ones or are near death themselves. Heaven Is a Breath Away gives hope and encourages faith by sharing the heaven Jesus promised - a real place, magnificent in scope and beauty, permeated with iridescence, and alive with divine energy and love. 1.

Midwife Kim Osterholzer ushers listeners behind the doors of Amish homes as she recounts her adventures answering God´s call to the craft of midwifery. Kim chronicles her nine-year apprenticeship grappling with the nuances and idiosyncrasies of homebirth. She recounts the beauty and painstaking effort of those early years spent catching babies by the light of crackling woodstoves, oil lamps, and lanterns. Every birth enthralled her, whether it involved halting hemorrhages, sharing breath with tiny lungs, or bouncing through wild rides in ambulances. Too many times to count, Kim stumbled home feeling overwhelmed and inadequate, yet, as she matured in her relationship with Christ and strained against self-doubt and seemingly insurmountable challenges, those intimate, sacred moments of birth transformed her. Slowly and steadily, Kim learned to play her part in a symphony of inimitable midwives and, at last, tried and tested, took her rightful place among them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Boyce.

Claire and Jim were friends, lovers, and sometimes enemies for 27 years. In order to get health insurance, they finally married, calling their anniversary the ´´It Means Absolutely Nothing´´ day. Then Jim was diagnosed with cancer. With ever-decreasing odds of survival, punctuated by arcs of false hope, Jim´s deteriorating health altered their well-established independence as they became caregiver and patient, sharing intimacy as close as their own breaths. A year and a half into their marriage, Jim died from lung/brain cancer. Sustained by good dogs and gardening through the two years of madness that followed, Claire soldiered through home repairs, career disaster, genealogy quests, and ´´dating for seniors´´ trying to build a better life on the debris of her old one. Leave the Dogs at Home maps and plays with the stages of grief. Delightfully confessional, it challenges persistent, yet outdated, societal norms about relationships, and finds relief in whimsy, pop culture, and renewed spirituality. 1. Language: English.
