Bailey Craig vowed never to set foot in Yancey again. She has a past, and a reputation–and Yancey’s a small town. She’s returned to bury a loved one killed in the plane crash and is determined not to stay even an hour more than necessary. But then dark evidence emerges and Bailey’s own expertise becomes invaluable for the case. Meets: Wednesday 9PM Eastern hosted by author Dani Pettrey

Adisa Johnson, a young African-American attorney, is living her dream of practicing law with a prestigious firm in downtown Atlanta. Then a split-second mistake changes the course of her career.

Circle Maker by Mark Batterson. According to Pastor Mark Batterson in this expanded edition of The Circle Maker, “Drawing prayer circles around our dreams isn’t just a mechanism whereby we accomplish great things for God. It’s a mechanism whereby God accomplishes great things in us.” Do you ever sense that there’s far more to prayer than what you’re experiencing? It’s time you learned from the legend of Honi the Circle Maker–a man bold enough to draw a circle in the sand and not budge from inside it until God answered his impossible prayer for his people. Meets: Monday 3 PM Eastern hosted by Caroline Hawthorne

Finish First by Scott Hamilton. Go for the win! Achieve excellence and be better than you’ve ever been!

Yet competition is in fact a good thing because it’s about working toward excellence. Meets: Monday 9 PM Eastern hosted by Stasia Nielsen
