Dear Friends,

Our lives are moving so fast. With the rapid advance of social media, the 24-hour news cycle and all the other “added extras” of modern living, don’t you long to stop and smell the roses? If that’s you, we feature just the book for you today. “The Sacred Slow: A Holy Departure From Fast Faith” by Alicia Britt Chole is “a book about honoring God as Creator and ourselves as His art.” It is “About developing a habit of attentiveness in every season.”
My husband is really excited because he recently discovered that Alexa now offers to read Kindle Books. His preferred reading approach is listening. NOW he gets great quality narration on every book in our Kindle library! If you haven’t already taken advantage of this new technology, I would encourage you to check out the   Amazon Echo!

Happy Reading!

    Stasia, could you expand on Alexa reading Kindle books? Does this require whispersync or Audible? How do you link alexa to your kindle library? I could not find anything about reading Kindle books at the amazon link. Thanks

      Good Morning Sue, Thank you for this question. If you have an Alexa Device, you can simply say…”Alexa, read my most recent book (or book title or author),” and Alexa will begin reading where you left off. You can also pull this up within the app on your smart phone. She does a great job reading the book to you. I am including a link for you. I hope this helps. If you have any problems, connect with me on our Facebook Page and I will be happy to do a video (been thinking about that anyway). May the Lord bless you! Stasia

      Say, “Play the Kindle book, ‘[title]’” to start the book.

      Say, “[Pause / Skip / Stop / Resume]” to control Alexa’s reading progress.

      If you already started reading the book on another compatible Amazon device or the Kindle reading app, Alexa will pick up from where you left off.

      To go to a different chapter in the book, you expand the Player Control Bar to see the Now Playing screen the queue access is located in bottom left corner, select chapter from list.

        Thanks so much. This might just make Alexander worthwhile.
