Today on the “Language of Love,” Dr. Laura Berman sits down for an intimate talk with Andrea Kayne. Andrea Kayne is a leadership coach and an author who recently wrote “Kicking Ass in a Corset: Jane Austen's 6 Principles of Living and Leading from the Inside Out.” Kayne draws insights and life lessons from the works of the 18th-century novelist. Austen's classics like “Emma” and “Pride and Prejudice” are as rich with meaning now as they were then. Yes, surprising as it may sound, these centuries-old books have a lot to teach us about self-knowledge, intuition, and learning to trust and embrace your power. In this episode, Dr. Berman and Kayne talk about what it means to know yourself, how to release old habits and self-defeating beliefs, and how to come really know and LOVE yourself, flaws and all. Whether you are an Austen lover or someone simply to find your purpose, this episode is a must-listen!

Andrea Kayne has taught women — from police officers in Chicago to educators in Beijing — how to thrive in any workplace environment. In her new book, KICKING ASS IN A CORSET, the leadership expert identifies the six core virtues of novelist Jane Austen's heroines — confidence, pragmatism, diligence, integrity, playfulness, and humility — and shows how they form the basis of internally referenced leadership. That is: cultivating the ability to direct one's focus internally, rather than on external forces. Get to know Andrea and tap into your Austen Powers.

Welcome back to The Literary Life podcast with Angelina Stanford, Cindy Rollins and Thomas Banks. Today our hosts embark on a new series of discussions as we read through Jane Austen's Mansfield Park together. To view the schedule for the episodes in this series, see our Upcoming Events page. Our hosts open the conversation with their first experience with this book and some thoughts on why people may struggle with Mansfield Park more than any other Austen novel. Angelina highlights the similarities some people note between Austen and Shakespeare and how this book illustrates that point. Thomas responds to criticisms that Fanny is a “prig.” Cindy brings up the importance of place in this book thematically. Other ideas they discuss in this episode are moving from blindness to sight, the importance of triangles in this book, and appearances versus reality. Commonplace Quotes: Many come to wish their tower a well… W. H. Auden, from “The Quest” Sadly, we do not have a Christian culture today that easily discriminates between a person of spiritual depth and a person of raw talent. Like the wheat and the tares of Jesus' parable, they can be difficult to distinguish. The result is that more than a few people can be fooled into thinking they are being influenced by a spiritual giant when, in fact, they are being manipulated by a dwarf. Gordon MacDonald Would you think I was joking if I said that you can put a clock back, and that if the clock is wrong it is often a very sensible thing to do? But I would rather get away from that whole idea of clocks. We all want to progress. But progress mean getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man… If you look at the present state of the big mistake. We are on the wrong road. And if that is so, we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on. C. S. Lewis Fairy-tale Logic by A. E. Stallings Fairy tales are full of impossible tasks: Gather the chin hairs of a man-eating goat, Or cross a sulphuric lake in a leaky boat, Select the prince from a row of identical masks, Tiptoe up to a dragon where it basks And snatch its bone; count dust specks, mote by mote, Or learn the phone directory by rote. Always it's impossible what someone asks— You have to fight magic with magic. You have to believe That you have something impossible up your sleeve, The language of snakes, perhaps, an invisible cloak, An army of ants at your beck, or a lethal joke, The will to do whatever must be done: Marry a monster. Hand over your firstborn son. As printed in Poetry Magazine, March 2010 Book List: Ordering Your Private World by Gordon MacDonald Voyage of the Dawn Treader by C. S. Lewis Mere Christianity by C. S.

In this episode we flashback to before Pillows and Beer. In a recording from 2019, listen as the boys take a step into the podcast world (of course the following step didn't happen until a few years later). Craig and Austen discuss everything from dating pet peeves to the bachelor and round it up with some happenings of 2019.
Today's feature conversation is with sculptor Austen Brantley. Website: https://www.austenbrantleysculpture.com/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/austenbrantley/ Also in the back few minutes, I share a couple quick things to know around town: - Local officials are worried about the city's low (43.9%) vaccination rate and a November/.December COVID-19 surge in the region. So far, Metro Detroit has been relatively spared. - The Starbucks at Woodward and Montcalm in the Fox Theater building quietly closed
Grace Hamman welcomes podcaster, speaker, and fellow mom writer Haley Stewart of Carrots for Michaelmas and Fountains of Carrots. Haley and Grace chat Jane Austen, Madeleine L'Engle, faith, and the challenging vocations of being writers and mothers (and which Jane Austen adaptations they think are the best and the worst).
In this episode, I talked with Austen Hartke. Austen is the author of Transforming: The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians, the founder and director of Transmission Ministry Collective, and the creator of one hundred videos for the Transgender and Christian YouTube series. Austen explained how the bible can be a balm for gender expansive Christians. Austen is a returning guest, and you can listen to his episode titled "The Bible and the Lives of Transgender Christians" from season 2 if you haven't already.

Chapters 5-8 of Northanger AbbeyThis week Elle and Catrina discuss the history of the English novel and what that means for this story. We meet a few new characters, have our hearts played with a bit, and discuss why certain kinds of literature are considered better than others - even if those considerations are false. Most importantly Catrina and Elle finally meet the worst character in the entire novel. While everyone can agree that Mr. Collins is one of Austen's worst characters to be around, it seems that Mr. Thorpe will give him a run for his money.Also, make sure to check out our friends at What Would Danbury Do, another great podcast from the Frolic Podcast Network.

Catherine Morland is an ordinary girl. She is pretty, but not remarkable. She is intelligent, but not a prodigy. She is well off, but not wealthy. Most importantly, she is our heroine. Why, because that is, literally, what Northanger Abbey tells us. Elle and Catrina start Northanger Abbey. Known as Austen's Gothic novel, this less popular book was actually the first complete novel she wrote. What's more, it is actually a parody of both the Gothic and sentimental romances of the time. Join us as we dive deep into this spooky book, just in time for fall!This episode is brought to you by Kensington's newest title from Shelly Laurenston, BREAKING BADGER.
