Attorney Victim Exposes The Spiritual Side Of Identity Theft From A Natural Perspective

Houston, TX, – Many victims of identity theft don’t realize what has happened until the damage is done. Similar to the natural crime, most people may not even be aware that their spiritual identity has been stolen until it’s too late. This type of theft can go unnoticed or unaddressed for many years until the victims face a difficult situation and suddenly discover that their spiritual identity has been stolen in the process.

In Identity Theft: Discovering the Real You (New Horizon Publishers), readers will see the parallels between having their “natural” identity and “spiritual” identity stolen. DeMonica D. Gladney provides an inspiring, real-life account of her personal encounter with identity theft in both ways. She describes a time when someone stole her money, credit and good name, while simultaneously there was a spiritual attack on her God-given purpose and destiny. Through these challenging and life-altering experiences that occurred years after a near fatal car accident, Gladney learned the keys to discovering and reclaiming her “full” stolen identity. In her book, she shares these findings and also brings readers a fresh perspective on how to discover the person God created them to be.

In our busy, high-stress world, it’s easy to get side-tracked and forget who we are spiritually. It took the author’s first-hand experience with identity theft to help her realize that other factors in her life, such as her career and relationships, were defining her. In her faith-affirming book, she provides an eye-opening analysis on how to recognize the signs of spiritual identity theft by first assessing what is missing in the reader’s life and moving forward through the steps to a full recovery. Once the spiritual identity theft is exposed, the reader is encouraged to overcome the theft by using scripture, prayer, and other spiritual tools. This inspiring, practical guide will walk the reader step-by-step through their personal journey toward discovering who they each really are.

DeMonica D. Gladney, Esq., is a corporate attorney in the Houston, Texas area. She is an inspirational speaker, poet and bestselling author of Identity Theft: Discovering the Real You; Willing to Wait: From Revelation to Manifestation, and Reflections from God. She has been featured on the Daystar Television Network, various radio talk shows, and in print media around the country.

Crime Never Takes A Vacation – What Intruders Don’t Want You To Know

Nashville, TN, – Our lagging economy has spurned a dramatic increase in burglaries and home invasions across the country, with agencies reporting an increase in 2010 after falling for a number of years. What is especially troubling is that these crimes have increased in the suburbs and small towns – places where it rarely happened before. 

 “The numbers reflect what we have been hearing from listeners all over the country. The bad economy has caused an increase in crime and it is happening everywhere”, says home security expert, Alan Young. Over the past three months, Young has conducted nearly 100 radio interviews, giving listeners tips on how not to become victims of a growing burglary and home invasion epidemic. Young is CEO of Armor Concepts LLC and has been featured on the CBS Early Show, The Today Show, and The Discovery Channel, as well as numerous local news segments.

Young’s common sense approach to home security, which focuses on economical ways to keep from becoming a victim, has suddenly made him a very popular guest for radio show hosts. “It was really interesting to hear his common sense approach to security. I know that it made me think, especially the part about alarm systems… “ said Georgianne Kiricoples, host of the “Breaking Through” radio show.

According to Young, there are three keys to making sure that your home is secure. The first is simple, “Use some common sense. Don’t post vacation plans on Facebook and don’t post vacation photos while still on vacation. Many burglaries are committed by someone you know or by someone connected to someone you know. Letting the world know that you’re not home is an easy way to become a target.”    

The second key is to make your home a less attractive target than your neighbor’s home. Sounds crazy, but according to Young, “If you and your neighbor are being chased by a dog, you don’t need to be faster than the dog, just your neighbor. Make your home a less attractive target and thieves will go somewhere else – unless you have something that they really want.”  Steps to making your home less attractive to burglars include cutting shrubs and properly lighting the inside and outside of your home.

The third key is to secure the exterior of your home. “Most people think about home alarm systems as home security. An alarm simply tells you that someone is inside your house and police response times are often greater than 20 minutes. A home alarm is the equivalent of having OnStar in your car. Would you not buckle your seat belt because OnStar will call the police after you have an accident? Alarms are a good addition to your home’s security but 85% of all break-ins are through a door. Secure your doors and you greatly increase your likelihood of success against a burglar.”

For door security, Young recommends EZ Armor, an inexpensive kit that reinforces the jamb, locks and hinges on an exterior entry door. The kit can be installed in about 30 minutes by a do-it-yourselfer and is guaranteed to help prevent kick-ins. EZ Armor can be purchased at Lowe’s, many ACE Hardware stores and online at www.armorconcepts.com.  He also recommends upgrading your deadbolt to an ANSI certified Grade 1 lock. There are several models, including one from Schlage, that can be purchased at many hardware stores.

“Security does not need to cost a lot, it just needs to work. Anyone that tells you otherwise is taking you for a ride. With a little common sense and a little effort you can effectively secure your home,” concluded Young. Many other home security tips, along with recommendations for what to do after a burglary, can be found at www.armorconcepts.com.

Young was featured on Nashville news last year when a couple in Murfreesboro, TN were victims of burglary and then avoided a repeat offense by taking Young’s advice. After being robbed, the couple installed EZ Armor as kick-in prevention on their door. When the same burglar came back weeks later and tried to kick in the same door, he made so much noise that the neighbors called the police and he was apprehended.

Alan S. Young is CEO of Armor Concepts LLC.  Mr. Young and Armor Concepts have been featured on The CBS Early Show, The Today Show, The Discovery Channel show “It Takes a Thief” and numerous local news segments.  Armor Concepts’ Door Jamb Armor, EZ Armor and FIX-A-JAMB products are sold nationally through Lowe’s, ACE Hardware, Do-It-Best and on their web site at www.armorconcepts.com
