  2. The Swaddling Clothes is also now available at Audible. com and the iTunes store.  Today we spend some time talking about swaddling and what it might mean to those shepherds who were looking for the “sign” of the baby in a manger in swaddling clothes.  Then we sample Amber Schamel’s book with lots of excerpts.  I even have a give-away for you.  Take a listen to find out how to get your free copy of this great listen.


#90-The Christmas Story & the Holiday Giftaway


This week, I take most of the podcast to re-tell the Christmas Story – that miraculous event which brought the world the Savior we all need.  Not only do we hear the story, but I share music which is appropriate for the events of the story.



We also share a new question for our Holiday Giftaway.  Correctly answer the question about the story of Christmas, and you’ll get to download a free audio book!  What a deal!


#89-Christmas Stories & a Holiday GiftAway


We continue our Holiday GiftAway this month with another chance for you to win the audio book of your choice from the Narration by George library.  Answer this week’s trivia question about story of the birth of Jesus, and you might be one of the ten winners this week.

We have favorite Christmas songs and favorite Christmas movies.  Do you have a favorite Christmas book? This week’s podcast features three Christmas audio books.  One of them may become a favorite for you.  Listen to the samples.  Then listen for the story of this week’s Christmas Carol: “Go Tell It On the Mountain.”


#86-December Gift-Away (For the Ladies 1)

#82-Risen: The Story of Lazarus


lazarusThis week, we break from our look at audio books to delve into some spiritual areas.  I recently spent a weekend dealing with the deaths of two parents in two families close to me. Putting these two events so close together stirred my soul deeply.  When I got back to my home church the following weekend, I heard a lesson from John 11 on Lazarus.  What should our perspective be on a story of resurrection?  I share this lesson with you on this podcast.  (This podcast is a bit longer than usual.  I hope you can hang with me!)


#56-Recast – Looking Back, Looking Forward


As the moving and rebuild of the Narration by George studio progresses, we look back at some popular podcasts that have been presented and maybe one you’ve been missed.  This is a retrospective episode that was presented at the first of this year.  I reviewed some titles that are available and some of the distribution issues that we are still facing.  I also looked forward to new distribution channels and new authors.  And I start with an interview with new author Donna Patton.  Take a listen!

P.S. Have you checked out my newest offerings? The Destined and A Study in Scarlet are now available on CD Baby, Audible.com, and in the I-Tunes store.  Click on the title for more info or go to narrationbygeorge.com/books.

#44-Upside Down Blessings


blessings copyThis week, we go back to the world of spiritual ideas to talk about “blessings.”  Each week, I end this podcast with an exhortation to “share you blessings with someone else.”  The question is, “What are our blessings?”  Are they the things we have?  The people we know?  The life we lead?  Jesus tells us about blessings and this lesson from my home church talks about those definitions in the context of Jesus’ birth.

Scriptures referenced in this lesson are:

#42-The Story of Christmas


birth-of-jesusIt’s two days before Christmas as I write this.  The season of giving, receiving, family, friends, fellowship, and food is upon us.  But, will we take time to remember the reason for this season?  Will we take time – individually and corporately – to celebrate, to contemplate, to remember the One who gave us the most important gift of all?  “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son.  And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.  God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.  He came to help, to put the world right again.” (John 3:16, The Message)  This podcast celebrates this gift in words and music.  Enjoy!
