Chic, Affordable And A Timely Reminder Of Faith: Olivia Sophia Stationery

Cedar Hills, TX – When Bridgette Reed learned she was expecting, she knew it was a miracle. She named her daughter “Olivia Sophia,” which means “anointed wisdom.” Shortly after, she founded her business, Olivia Sophia Stationery, a brand built on love and faith.

“The beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord,” Reed explains. “We live for Him and believe He has blessed us with this great miracle. Our little baby is our inspiration, God is our foundation, love is our destination, empowerment is our goal and faith is our movement.”

Olivia Sophia Stationery products are fun, inspiring and fashionable. They are also affordable. “We believe that anything is possible,” Reed continues. “While you can get a journal from anywhere, we want our customers to be reminded that God is able and anything is possible. There is no mountain too high that you can’t climb and there is no obstacle too tough that you can’t make it through. With God on your side you can achieve anything.”

Bridgette Reed is best known for her self-published book Bold, Fierce and Transformed, featured on FOX Good Day, ABC Good Morning Dallas and a host of other radio, television and print media. It has been sold internationally and in major bookstore chains such as Barnes and Noble and Family Christian Stores.

Less well known is the fact that over the past ten years she has successfully created six businesses and has guided the growth of a multi-million dollar corporation including all aspects of business operations, finance and marketing. She has also taught at major corporations about business fundamentals, and now has three successful businesses, including Olivia Sophia Stationery.

Bridgette has realized her purpose in life is to help women birth their businesses God’s way, and has become an expert at helping women profit with purpose. She uses faith and God’s Word as her foundation, and grace as the standard. A loving wife and mom, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, reading, journaling and diving into new craft projects in her spare time.

Praise Chapel Houston Launches New Young Adults Ministry For Challenging Times

Houston, TX ― Building a platform for effective worship, study and ministry in our time is not only necessary but unprecedented; this is the impetus for the revitalized Young Adults Ministry at Praise Chapel.

“The complexity of everyday life becomes even more challenging for a believer, especially because our culture is increasingly one of nonbelievers,” says Pastor Nathan Hanohano. “What we believe in and how we come to that ‘belief system’ will ultimately shape the destiny of the 21st century Christian,” he continues. “God has big plans for this generation, to usher in the next Great Awakening of the 21st century.”

At Praise Chapel, we work hard to be a church of relationships rather than rules, building bridges and tearing down barricades. We celebrate all nationalities, ages and people at Praise Chapel. We have a vibrant and inspirational music ministry, and offer special programming for children, women, married couples, students, singles, seniors and men.

Praise Chapel is located in Webster, TX. We are conveniently located a few minutes from Houston, and near the cities of League City, Pasadena, Friendswood, Pearland, Clear Lake, Dickinson, Seabrook, La Porte, Texas City, Kemah, and Alvin.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Miracles We Have Seen: America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget

“A beautifully written collection from physicians witnessing the mystery and power of the human body and spirit in the most extreme circumstances.” – Dr. Jerome Groopman, Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, New Yorker staff writer.

“We read so many accounts of freak accidents and rare diseases bringing misery into the lives of people who deserve better. That is why it was so refreshing, so soul-restoring, to read these accounts of near tragedies that were prevented by human efforts, good will, and caring.” – Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People and Nine Essential Things I’ve Learned about Life.

Deerfield Beach, FL – In Miracles We Have Seen: America’s Leading Physicians Share Stories They Can’t Forget (HCI Books), Dr. Harley A. Rotbart provides an assembly of essays written by peers in the medical profession, including deans and associate deans of medical schools, academic department heads at leading university medical centers, and national opinion leaders in an array of medical specialties.

These astonishing, first-person essays are written in everyday language for the delight of all readers, and depict medical outcomes that defied all expectations and, in some cases, science itself.

Dr. Rotbart writes, “Occasionally in the course of caring for our patients, we encounter events that truly stun us. Unforgettable occurrences…far exceeding the wide berth we are trained to allow for surprise.” His collection of miracles tells stories of impossible cures, miraculous timing, and recoveries from hearts stopped longer than survivable, catastrophic injuries, and freak accidents and occurrences, including:

• A nine-year-old boy who was decapitated in a horrific car accident but survived without neurological damage.
• A woman who conceived and delivered a healthy baby – despite having had both of her fallopian tubes surgically removed.
• A young man whose only hope for survival was a heart transplant, but just as he developed a potentially fatal complication making a transplant impossible, his own heart began healing itself.

As the physicians recount their very personal reactions to these remarkable clinical experiences, it is apparent that while some miracles are more emotional than physical, the event left a lasting imprint. In most instances, says Rotbart, the miracles actually directed them in their choice of specialty and has influenced much of their professional decision-making throughout their careers.

Although Miracles We Have Seen gives special insight into the lives and souls of doctors and how the miracles have affected them and their patients, Rotbart notes, “While faith and prayer certainly play an important role in many of our patients’ lives, as well as in some of the vignettes in this compilation, this is not a book about religion. Rather, this is a book about optimism and inspiration…what we don’t know or don’t understand isn’t necessarily cause for fear, and can even be reason for hope.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Harley Rotbart, MD (Denver, CO), has been a nationally renowned pediatric specialist, parenting expert, speaker and educator for over three decades. He is professor and Vice Chair Emeritus of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Children’s Hospital Colorado.

‘Her’ Draws Attention To A Disorder That Disrupts The Lives Of Many Teens And Robs Them Of Their Self-Identity

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

‘Her’ Draws Attention To A Disorder That Disrupts The Lives Of Many Teens And Robs Them Of Their Self-Identity

In ‘Her,’ Felicia Johnson takes us into the mind of a girl suffering with borderline personality disorder, and deftly portrays her hopes and struggles as she desperately tries to understand it.

Tucker, GA – While mental health issues are more freely discussed these days, it’s still difficult to approach someone who might have a problem. But ignoring it is not an option. With courage and great hope, Felicia Johnson deftly portrays the struggles of a girl with borderline personality disorder in Her (8th Street Publishing).

“Her takes readers into the mind of someone who is suffering so they can get a first person view of a painful mental disorder,” says Johnson. “The story is an example of how, if we try to push the past away, we are either doomed to repeat it or let it haunt us to our graves.”

At first glance, Kristen Elliott is a normal seventeen-year-old who loves her family and friends and strives for their approval. But Kristen knows something is wrong with her. In her pain and isolation, she finds fleeting solace in self-injury, and the company of Mr. Sharp, her imaginary friend who feeds her feelings of self-loathing.
After a failed suicide attempt, Kristen is placed in a mental hospital and diagnosed with borderline personality disorder (BPD). There, she discovers the circumstances that brought her to this breaking point, struggles to understand her mental illness, and fights to be a survivor against her own worst enemy: her self-blame.

Kristen’s tale of endurance illustrates the complex nature of the illness known as borderline personality disorder. Readers – including those suffering from BPD and their friends and family – can glean insight into the illness from this powerful and compelling story.

“The story is inspired by my life of survival and my childhood best friend, Holly, who suffered from BPD,” Johnson says. “Holly lost her battle with depression and BPD when she was 15 years old and took her own life. Her also illuminates the harsh reality of child abuse in the home and the long term psychological effects it has on everyone involved.”

Johnson is an author, child abuse survivor, and mental health advocate. She works in Atlanta with the Highlands Institute and volunteers with Youth Villages Inner Harbour and Personality Disorder Awareness Network. Johnson was nominated for the Gutsy Gals Inspire Me Award of 2014 and Her has been nominated for Georgia Writer’s Association Author of The Year Award. She loves ice cream and seeing her little sister smile.

New York, NY ― Yes, you heard it right, the Intelligent Divorce!

Consider the following:

• Should you stay or should you go?
• If you stay, how do you turn a relationship around?
• Or, if it’s time to go, how do you make it right for the kids?
• And then, there are always tips on dealing with an “Impossible Ex.”

13:24 – A Dark Thriller

1324: A Dark Thriller by [Hickmon, M]

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

13:24 – A Dark Thriller

Leesburg, FL – M. Dolon Hickmon’s 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a unique survivor-driven public outreach, intended to deepen public awareness of crimes against children and of the lingering impacts of PTSD. Published with the financial backing of nearly one hundred child abuse survivors and their allies, the project has been enormously successful to date: honored with a starred review in Publishers Weekly’s Best Books annual special issue, the book is now shelved in libraries from Helena, Montana to Zürich, Switzerland. The Kindle edition of 13:24 – A Dark Thriller is a current Top 25 Best Seller in Amazon’s “Child Abuse” and “Vigilante Justice Thrillers” categories.

“I have written and published essays and research on child abuse and excessive corporal punishment since 2006,” Hickmon says. “I eventually realized that although studies were being done and papers being written, the latest advances in our understanding of early trauma were not reaching the public. My solution was to create a fast-paced crime thriller that would combine elements of my own experiences with true crime headlines and cutting-edge research into the neurobiological basis of PTSD. With the help of a successful Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, I assembled an amazing team of publishing veterans with hundreds of fiction best sellers between them.”

The result is a heart-pounding, ripped-from-the-headlines crime thriller that sensitively guides readers through the spiritual, physical, and emotional consequences of child abuse and the lifelong process of overcoming it.

Publishers Weekly raved: “Hickmon unleashes a shocking blitzkrieg of murder, conspiracy, and child abuse in this disturbing, breathlessly plotted murder mystery […] Eschewing easy answers for moral complexity, this thriller is unsettling entertainment that offers catharsis.”

The accuracy of the book’s complex portrayals have been attested to by child abuse survivors and trauma experts alike: “Mr. Hickmon writes with the clarity, power and passion of someone who really knows what he is writing about, and who understands the wide range of responses human beings experience when trying to deal with lives affected by ongoing trauma,” declared Bristol University trauma researcher and emeritus professor Dr. Kim Etherington, in her pre-publication review; “There are textbooks that explain the scientific mechanisms that underpin post traumatic stress disorder, but this book tells a story that reaches out to help us all understand.”

The book’s back cover effectively distills the plot: “Detective William Hursel has worked countless murder cases; staring down the cruelest deeds humanity has to offer. But nothing prepares him for what he’ll uncover while pursuing 14-year-old Christopher Pesner, a suspect in the brutal rage-killing of his own mother. While news reports focus on Chris’s odd obsession with the violent, blasphemous heavy metal band, Rehoboam, Hursel suspects a deeper motive — a hunch that is confirmed when Chris’s second victim is discovered. Racing to piece together the identity of Chris’s next target, Hursel unearths the shocking link between an embattled politician, a controversial celebrity evangelist, and a shadowy underworld where human traffickers ply the wealthy with unseemly indulgences.”

Author M. Dolon Hickmon is a writer, activist, and a survivor of religious child maltreatment. His writings can be found on news websites like AlterNet, OnFaith, and Salon, and his opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers such as the Scotsman, the South Lake Press, and the Bainbridge (GA) Post-Searchlight. Hickmon has been interviewed by local and nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts, including Washington DC based Sex, Politics and Religion with Jamila Bey, Live from Seattle with Doug Bursch, and the Los Angeles-based Jesse Lee Peterson show.

Hickmon’s original research continues to be cited by many and was included in a 2010 civil rights presentation to a committee of the US Congress. His hobbies include reading, songwriting, and playing acoustic and electric guitar. He lives with his wife and their daughter.

What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition

New York, NY – In a thoughtful new book, renowned author and psychologist Peter Sacco takes a good, hard look at anger and the reasons it might be disrupting our lives, and future generations. In What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition, he asks, can anger be addictive?

“After working with individuals one-on-one in counseling and in groups, I would definitely have to say yes,” he says. “There are people who get totally aroused, empowered and motivated by their anger.” People respond to adversity and emotions one of two ways. They either run from it, or they stand up to it. “If you keep standing up to conflict or seek it, you get aroused and release adrenaline. This hormone provides a rush almost like a stimulant or ‘upper.’ We are seeing more of this now in acts driven by political fanaticism and moral justification.

There are twelve types of anger identified in What’s Your Anger Type? Revised Edition. A series of self-inventory tests help to clarify the different anger types and provide tips on overcoming them through proven methods. The two most important facts to keep in mind about anger, Sacco says, are that anger is a normal and healthy emotion, and you are not nuts or insane when you get angry. “It is how you deal with your anger which is the most important factor,” he continues. “There’s no time like the present to modify your life and make optimal living your goal.” His new book examines how ‘anger’ is affecting today’s children in North America.

Peter Sacco is also the acclaimed author of Right Now Enough Is Enough, a self-help guide for overcoming addictions of all types by combining Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) with the law of attraction. And in Why Keeping Resolutions Are So Ridiculously Difficult! The Handbook To Understanding And Overcoming Procrastination, Sacco explains that procrastination is a habit that can become an addiction, and how it is out of control in our culture – as are the bad habits and addictions which are its by-products.

In addition to being an author of many books and more than 800 magazine articles, Sacco is an award-winning lecturer at universities in both the USA and Canada, specializing in relationships, criminal psychology, addictions, and mental health. He is also a frequent resident expert on several television programs and appears regularly as a guest expert on many news talk radio shows in the USA (FOX, ABC, CBS, Iheart, Coast To Coast, etc.), as well as hosting the weekly radio show “Matters of the Mind: Managing Relationships and Mental Health.” He is also an award-winning executive producer and host of documentaries on relationships, psychological issues and child issues.
