Bigger Than Business: Inspiring Stories That Prove We Can Live God’s Purpose Through Work—And Succeed!

Fort Worth, TX, In a society where workforces—especially executives—are encouraged to keep their professional lives and spiritual lives separate, Jeff Holler’s Bigger Than Business: Real-World Stories of Business Owners Living Their Purpose is a thought-provoking testimonial to the power of a faith-driven existence—even in the boardroom.

Bigger Than Business shares transparent, true-life stories of Christian entrepreneurs living out their God-created purposes in their unique business settings. Between the covers of Bigger Than Business, readers will meet eight faithful business owners from six continents who share their remarkable stories, including:

• A US couple who rose above a personal tragedy and through their business set a transformative example for all;
• An inspiring Australian business owner who, with God’s help, transformed a business capable of serving one individual at a time into one poised to serve hundreds of thousands around the globe;
• A Brazilian with a Japanese heritage who was fired by his own family, yet returned to help build and continue the family business; and
• An amazing woman who barely survived the genocide in Rwanda and who now heals broken hearts through her small sewing cooperative.

At the end of each chapter are insightful questions to help readers understand ways in which they can live their God-given purposes in and through their own businesses. Bigger Than Business gives readers the know-how and the confidence to pursue what they value and to commit more passionately to pursuing a greater purpose.

Author Jeff Holler is a speaker and founder of The Capital Chart Room LTD, serving some of the most respected and successful entrepreneurs in Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas. A certified financial planner, Jeff holds a bachelor’s degree in business from Florida State University. He leads an adult Bible study class, and he and his wife, Charlsey, commit their time, talent, gifts and service to several ministries. They have two wonderful daughters with precious families of their own. Jeff and Charlsey live in Fort Worth, Texas.

Testimonial for Ascot Media Group from author, Lawrence A. Clayton

Just a short endorsement of Ascot which did a great job of getting two books of mine, Work and Wealth in Scripture and Cleared for Landing: On Leading a Christian Life, some excellent exposure among book reviewers, some television and radio spots, and, in sum, they really do deliver what they promise. I enjoyed the professional and personal exchanges with the staff at Ascot and recommend them as people who indeed do what they say they can and will do.

Testimonial for Ascot Media Group from author, Marsha Sinetar

 

My experience with the Ascot Media Group was excellent. The press release was promptly and collaboratively done and quickly sent, there’s a protocol for responding to review requests, and we had a broad range of interviews — including one from Europe.

In my opinion, Trish Stevens was most professional, as were Ascot’s associates.

Can you hear me applauding?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Making Lifestyle Changes Now To Prevent Dementia As We Age

Chattanooga, TN ― Dr. Timothy R. Jennings speaks expertly on a subject that concerns over 5.5 million people across the nation: how to prevent dementia and keep our mind sharp as we age. A psychiatrist and international speaker, Jennings introduces his new book, recently rated #1 by Amazon in books on dementia, The Aging Brain: Proven Steps to Prevent Dementia and Sharpen Your Mind.

Dr. Jennings prescribes simple, everyday actions we can take to stave off disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s. “The choices we make now can help us to keep our minds sharp and maintain our independence as we age,” says Jennings.

An easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout life, The Aging Brain is based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, and the interventions discussed can prevent progression toward dementia, even in those already showing signs of mild cognitive impairment. The recommendations also may help reduce disability and depression.

“This book isn’t just for people hoping to slow the aging process,” says Jennings. “It’s also for anyone who is a caregiver to someone at risk of or already beginning to suffer from dementia. It offers a hopeful, healthy way forward.”

Jennings, who maintains a private practice in Chattanooga, TN, has authored several books, including The God-Shaped Brain and The God-Shaped Heart. He is a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association and Fellow of the Southern Psychiatric Association, and is president and founder of Come and Reason Ministries.

The Aging Brain: A Road Map for Keeping A Sharp Mind Into Old Age

Chattanooga, TN ― Growing older is inevitable, but many of the afflictions associated with old age—including dementia, disability and increased dependence on others—don’t have to be. So if you could, would you choose to break the mold of aging?

Psychiatrist and international speaker Timothy R. Jennings, M.D., may have some insights. Dr. Jennings prescribes simple, everyday actions we all can take to stave off disease, promote vitality, and prevent dementia and late-onset Alzheimer’s. “The choices we make now can help us to keep our minds sharp and maintain our independence as we age,” says Jennings.

An easy-to-use guide to maintaining brain and body health throughout life, The Aging Brain is based on solid, up-to-date scientific research, and the interventions discussed may help prevent progression toward dementia, even in those already showing signs of mild cognitive impairment.

Jennings, who maintains a private practice in Chattanooga, TN, has authored several books, including The God-Shaped Brain and The God-Shaped Heart.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Love Is Power: Receiving God’s Love Transforms Our Life So We May Inspire Others

Chattanooga, TN – Dr. Timothy Jennings was named a Distinguished Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association. In addition to maintaining a private practice as a board-certified Christian psychiatrist and certified master psychopharmacologist for many years, he is a lecturer, international speaker, and author of many widely-respected books.

In his latest book, The God-Shaped Heart: How Correctly Understanding God’s Love Transforms Us, Dr. Jennings explores the healing power of love and exposes a single idea, misunderstood and deeply rooted within Christianity, that has prevented many believers in God from experiencing the freedom and healing power of His unfailing love.

Human beings are experts at complicating things. We become trapped in cycles of shame, violence and addiction that steal our joy and prevent us from loving others. In his book, Dr. Jennings identifies eternal truths that open the heart to God’s love and offers a way to free us from this prison. It’s really very simple; the key to health and happiness is love ― God’s love for us and our love for others.

The author offers insights that make God’s love understandable, accessible and applicable to all ― including anyone frustrated with Christianity or who see it as negative and critical. In this compelling follow-up to The God Shaped Brain, Jennings takes an evidence-based approach to what he calls the “infection of thought” that keeps many Christians trapped in fear and insecurity. He lists seven stages of spiritual development to help people get out of this trap by correctly understanding God’s love. By transforming how they experience the world will improve every aspect of their life and help them become an inspiration to others by being a beacon of love, light and encouragement.

A Life-Fellow of the Southern Psychiatric Association, Dr. Jennings obtained his M.D. degree from the University of Tennessee College of Medicine in Memphis and completed his psychiatric residency at D.D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta, Georgia. Jennings is also the President and Founder of Come and Reason Ministries and has served as President of the Southern Psychiatric Association and Tennessee Psychiatric Association. He resides with his wife in Chattanooga, TN.

His other books include: Could It Be This Simple? A Biblical Model for Healing the Mind, The Journal of the Watcher, The Remedy New Testament Expanded Paraphrase and The God-Shaped Brain: How Changing Your View of God Transforms Your Life.

Blood in the Desert: Only The Unwavering Power Of Love And Faith Can Overcome Persecution

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Blood in the Desert: Only The Unwavering Power Of Love And Faith Can Overcome Persecution

Dallas, TX ― Religious persecution was an all-too cruel reality for early Christians in 294 A.D. The Roman Empire searched relentlessly for believers, torturing and killing some and selling others into slavery. It was a dark time for Miriam, an orphaned young woman now enslaved by a brutal Roman officer named Quintus. Miriam would endure unthinkable emotional and physical torture before being forced to bear the officer’s child, a heartache made worse when the baby, Philip, is born blind. In a fit of rage, the ruthless Quintus drives mother and child apart, casting them on perilous, separate paths.

C. Douglas Gordon’s debut novel, Blood in the Desert, follows Miriam and Philip as they each drift aimlessly toward their fate. In this portrait of the enduring supernatural power of love and faith in perilous times, the mysterious wolf Lupa appears, leading Miriam to her new destiny, while Philip is taken in by nomadic traders. Their dramatic journeys through the treacherous devotions of early Christendom illuminate the risks and rewards of faith in the years before Emperor Constantine found a powerful ally in Yesua and changed the course of history. Until then, all the things modern Christians take for granted — institutions, buildings, meeting spaces and even the gathered texts that make up the New Testament — were nonexistent for hundreds of years following the death and resurrection of Christ.

Dallas businessman C. Douglas Gordon has translated his organizational and management skills to the task of bringing detail-oriented research to his novels. Inspired by his older brother’s deep faith, Doug honors his memory by exploring the roots of Christianity from its earliest appearances in history and through its years of torment and challenge.

Doug’s series, You Left in Me the Faith, seeks to shed light on the formative period that gave birth to the Church as we know it today. Years of effort have produced an exciting first novel, Blood in the Desert. Doug creates fictional characters whose lives interact with and are impacted by real historical events and figures of the day. Readers can’t help but be amazed that Christianity survived at all. The second novel in the series, The Twelve Coins, is currently in progress.
