Gone to Dallas Offers Unbridled Entertainment Fueled by Texas History

Gone to Dallas Offers Unbridled Entertainment Fueled by Texas History

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Join author Laurie Moore-Moore as she masterfully draws you into the world of 1850s Texas in Gone to Dallas: The Storekeeper 1856-1861, her richly entertaining tale of migration, betrayal, dreams and determination. Salted with historically accurate events and populated with real characters, the book features a plucky female protagonist with a dream and begins the way many tales of the West do—with a dead body.

At the center of the story is Sara, a young woman who arrives in the Lone Star State alone, newly widowed and faced with making a living in a man’s world. Determined to open a general store in Dallas—a tiny settlement of log cabins on the Trinity River—she must overcome her own uncertainty, loneliness, vandalism and threats.

Readers will follow Sara as she strives to create her general store while living Dallas’ true history—from the beginnings of La Réunion (the European colony across the Trinity) to a frozen river, a grand ball and the mighty fire that burns Dallas to the ground. Dallas is a challenging place, especially with the Civil War looming. Even with the friendship of a retired Texas Ranger and Dallas’ most important citizen—another woman—is Sara strong enough to meet the challenge? The stakes are high. Failure means being destitute in Dallas.

Gone to Dallas is an unforgettable journey into the exciting, yet turbulent times of a young Texas. A compelling story with a cast of characters that will capture your heart with their tenacity and spirit as they work to create new lives at the edge of the frontier. It’s a tale of decency and resourcefulness that is fundamental to the continuing identity of Texas and the American West.

Laurie Moore-Moore was dubbed the “Luxury Real Estate Diva” by the Chicago Tribune during 15 years as founder and CEO of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. Previously, she co-founded Real Trends, Inc., a publishing, communications and consulting business.

End-Time Living Helps Believers Prepare for Second Coming of Jesus

End-Time Living Helps Believers Prepare for Second Coming of Jesus

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

When Jesus spoke to the disciples about his Second Coming, he emphasized the importance of preparing ahead of time for the end of days. As he cautions in Mat. 24:44, “So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man (Jesus) will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”

“To be prepared for this troubled time will require understanding what will be going on and why,” explains Bible scholar David S. Heeren. “Otherwise, it will be scary, and many believers will take flight (mentally and even physically) as did the early disciples when they saw Jesus was about to be murdered.”

Heeren has written extensively on the topic of end-time prophecy, and in his fifth book on the subject, End-Time Living: Despite Conflict and Hardship, All Is Well, he trains his focus on the preparations necessary prior to the end-time and the power of redemptive love to minimize any tribulation.

End-Time Living draws its messaging from the second half of the Bible, featuring details from relevant sermons of Jesus (Matthew 5-7, 24 and Luke 21) and the eight chapters of the beautiful allegory, Song of Songs.

Included are 15 points of emphasis presented as keys to a God-honoring lifestyle; the true story of a 12-year-old Christian boy who openly expressed love for the man who beat his mother to death; the story of the enduring legacy of missionary Richard Wurmbrand and his underground ministry; and Heeren’s deeply personal account of his wife, Joan, and her tremendous capacity for love.

Despite the perilous end of days setting that forms the backdrop for End-Time Living, Heeren centers his narrative on the reasons why believers should remain hopeful that any tribulation will be short-lived, and the rewards for those who stand firm for Him until the end will be everlasting.

“We should be happy and hopeful because we are headed for a victorious finale, the Second Coming of Jesus, which will be a cause of celebration to millions upon millions of people who will meet Him in the air,” Heeren says.

David S. Heeren is an award-winning journalist and author of 17 books. A personal prayer identical to that of Isaiah (Is. 6:8) led him to change his career emphasis from sports writing to Christian writing in 2007. Since that time, he has published nine books with Christian themes, five of which deal with biblical end-time prophecy. His previous book, The High Sign, which identifies the most likely sign of Jesus’ Second Coming, received a double-four-star (perfect) rating from the Online Book Club — the highest rating awarded by the club.

His upcoming Christian novel, Year of Our Lord, has been praised by literary critic David Dickerson as “by far the most exciting in the In His Steps series.”

The One God of All Nations an Invitation to Refutation, or Consensus!

The One God of All Nations an Invitation to Refutation, or Consensus!

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Spiritual Drifting

God’s Sheepdog, like many folks, when it came to spirituality, he had more questions than answers.

In his quest for truth, God’s Sheepdog prayed and fasted.

He spent 23 years researching, 7 years writing, plus 3 years editing this work of three books. Starting with Part One, this work is to reveal in God’s Word who God the Father truly is.

The Cause
We have five major religions (Trinitarians, Unitarians, Oneness, Muslim and Jews) that set up a wall between one another, with all reading the same bible and coming up with five different Gods.

The Solution
There are two major reasons why we—to this day—still have refutable debates between the Trinitarians, Unitarians, Oneness, Muslims and Jews about who God is—Three, Two or One—and about who Jesus is—God or Man, or both. The two reasons are: (1) They all deny that God is Male and Female, thus they fail to understand who God’s Female is and Her role within God. (2) Their not understanding who God’s Female is causes them to not understand the Two that was One while on earth, but yet were Two, and They are Two in Heaven to this day.

In Luke 1:32, Christ Jesus Emmanuel our Lord was given his father David’s throne—meaning he’s David’s Son; he was named son of David more than 15 times—but in Matthew 22:41-45, the Lord Jesus Christ our God said, He’s not David’s Son. If David then calls him Lord, how is he his son? There are many major differences between The Lord Jesus Christ our God and Christ Jesus Emmanuel our Lord.

God’s Image according to the Bible will destroy Tertullian’s and our doctrine of a Triune God. In Colossian 2:2, we learn of three mysteries—the mystery of God—and of the Father, and of Christ—and that God wants us to come unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of these three mysteries. Again, why is this so important? Because God wants us to truly know Him & Jesus Christ John 17:3.

In his new book, God’s Me, Myself, and I: The Truth and Ultimate Truth about the Trinity Conspiracy, God’s Sheepdog explores in depth the concept of the Trinity Conspiracy and presents evidence he found in scripture that the University of Chicago History of Religions Journal Scholars Paul Copp, Matthew T. Kapstein and Christian Wedemeyer, calls a “solid piece of scholarship.”

In this book, God’s Sheepdog presents:

  1. Some of his own crises of faith.
  2. Scientific proof, that God created prehistoric man, albeit not “in the likeness or image of God.”
  3. Compelling proof of the many major differences between God’s Spirit
    Produced Son (The Lord Jesus Christ our God) and God’s Begotten Son (Christ Jesus Emmanuel our Risen Lord.
  4. That God is male and female, as referenced in Genesis 1:26-27 and Genesis
    5:1-2; Jeremiah 33:15-16;
  5. That many bibles by changing and/or omitting God’s Word have made themselves part of the conspiracy.
  6. Proof that God did not make woman in His own image, but in the image of Man.

Roland Williams is originally from Mississippi. He is a former Trinitarian pastor, adult Sunday school teacher, retired chef, abstract artist, publisher and author. He believes in the Father, The Word, the Holy Spirit, and the Begotten Son, but through research, understands that God is not a Triune God as the Trinity theology teaches Him to be.

Roland has studied scholars from Theophilus of Antioch to Tertullian; the Christian Theology of Dr. R. C. Sproul to Dr. James White; and Dr. David Bernard to Dr. Nathaniel Urshan; as well as Dr. Shabir Ally to Dr. Zakir Naik and others.

Curtain Pulled Back on ‘Alarming’ Health Care Practices

Curtain Pulled Back on ‘Alarming’ Health Care Practices

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

After 28 years in the health care business, Dr. David Wilcox has seen enough to realize that it truly is a “business,” as opposed to the kind-hearted healing service that most of us might imagine it to be. His new book reveals some unsettling facts.

“There is little to no transparency about procedures or billing,” Dr. Wilcox says, “and the average health care consumer doesn’t think about it until they have to access the healthcare system. That is a dangerous mentality, as we all will need health care at some point in our lives.”

In his book, How to Avoid Being a Victim of the American Healthcare System: A Patient’s Handbook for Survival, Dr. Wilcox offers information, facts and tips that can help patients and family members navigate through the morass.

“I have seen some alarming situations that nursing school never prepared me for,” Dr. Wilcox said. “Not being prepared and knowledgeable means you will have little control over the health care you receive.”

His goal in writing this book was to level the playing field, enabling consumers of health care to understand how to avoid getting caught in the systemic net.

In his own words, Dr. Wilcox’s book explores “what to do if you have to go to a hospital, how to handle an insurance company’s claim denial, how to find an alternative to high-priced prescriptions and why the current pay-for-fee system is inadequate. You will also discover the direction the healthcare system needs to move in, to holistically care for you, the patient … information that the health care entities would prefer you didn’t know.”

Dr. David Wilcox is a health care professional who believes proactive patient education enables those accessing the healthcare system to be better partners in their health care. He also believes that everyone has the right to access the American Healthcare System safely. A Doctorate-prepared nurse who also holds a Master’s in Health Administration and is Board Certified in Nursing Informatics, Dr. Wilcox has nearly three decades of health care experience as a bedside nurse, hospital administrator and in health care information technology, which has helped him to develop his unique perspective on the American Healthcare System.

Like a fragile flower emerging from a crack in the sidewalk, professor and trained psychotherapist Laura Berg pushed aside personal setbacks and found a way to be better in spite of them — or maybe even because of them.

I’m hoping that these stories and the advice I share in this book will help the reader live a more joyful and thriving life.”

With practical tips and a step-by-step approach to help you find what makes you happy, Berg teaches readers how to stop victimizing themselves and find strength in asking for help.

25 Years in a Cult: Former Follower Draws Readers Into Disciple Mindset

25 Years in a Cult: Former Follower Draws Readers Into Disciple Mindset

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet, or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Radhia Gleis didn’t wake up one day and decide to join a cult. That’s not how it happens, she said.

“It has nothing to do with intelligence or education,” she explained in a recent interview. “It has to do with being in the right (or wrong) place at the wrong time when you’re in a state of searching for something, and someone comes along who meets that need.”

Her powerful new book, The Followers: “Holy Hell” and the Disciples of Narcissistic Leaders: How My Years in a Notorious Cult Parallel Today’s Cultural Mania, articulates the complexity of how she fell under the influence of the charismatic leader of the Buddha-field cult. The Holy Hell reference in the book’s title is a nod to the 2016 Buddha-field cult documentary, in which Gleis appears.

A nutritionist, biochemical analyst and educator, Gleis says her post-traumatic stress, forever entombed in her psyche, is repeatedly triggered by the characteristics of current political and cultural leaders, prompting her to explore her past decisions through a much broader lens that sheds light on the blind spots — and dangers — of groupthink.

The Followers lays the groundwork by skimming Gleis’ upbringing in Hollywood and tracing the steps of her life when, at age 14, she began to crave a deeper sense of spirituality. She spent the next 12 years searching for nirvana, and at age 26, she found what she thought she had been searching for. Gleis draws strong parallels between her devotion to a cult leader — an authority — whose damaging behavior and influence she willfully ignored, and the followers of other narcissistic authorities. She goes into detail about the characteristics of narcissists and explains the “feedback loop” that sustains the disciple-narcissist dynamic.

Gleis weaves together her personal experiences with reflections on a number of thought-provoking topics, including the search for a higher truth, cults, groupthink and mind control, authoritarian leaders, malignant narcissistic personality disorder and sociopathy, the American schism, and how an intelligent, well-educated person may find herself under the control of a narcissistic sociopath.

Author Radhia Gleis has been a Certified Clinical Nutritionist, CCN, MEd. biochemical analyst and educator for over 33 years. She has appeared as a featured guest on numerous radio and television shows including Fox News, Austin. She hosted The Health Revolution and Let’s Get Healthy on Talk 1370 AM, KLBJ, and The Wellness Connection podcast on Voice America. She was the host and executive producer of three YouTube series: Wake up America; How the Body Works; and The Natural Way. She was featured in the internationally viewed movie, Holy Hell, which was broadcast on CNN and named one of Sundance Film Festival’s and Netflix’s top 10 documentaries. It can now be viewed on Amazon Prime.

Understand the 7 Archetypes and Finally Meet Your Match

Understand the 7 Archetypes and Finally Meet Your Match

(This press release may be reprinted in part or entirety by any print or broadcast media outlet or used by any means of social media sharing.)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Commitment can’t be forced, scheduled, or altered. It either comes from the heart or it doesn’t.” — Dr. Carmen Harra

What does your dream relationship look like? Perhaps you’re looking for a fairy tale, or a lifetime of financial stability, or just the “perfect” partner to grow old with. You may have already created a “type” in your mind, and you’re looking for the person who checks all the boxes. But what if this approach to love is wrong?

Preconceived standards and expectations about relationships can be misleading at best and flat-out harmful at worst, explains world-renowned psychologist Carmen Harra.

Whether you’re entering the dating scene for the first time, starting over or hoping to strengthen a current relationship, Harra’s new book, Committed: Finding Love and Loyalty Through the Seven Archetypes, will prompt you to reevaluate the way you think about love — and ultimately make better choices.

“Before you can find a devoted partner, you have to unlearn other people’s versions of love and relearn your own,” she said.

In Committed, Harra and co-author and daughter Alexandra Harra, who is a certified relationship coach, explain the seven main archetypes we all encounter, the promises they hold and the challenges they pose to relationships.

The first part of Committed is devoted to the work we need to do on the inside, and readers will learn how to reexamine core beliefs they hold, clear karmic patterns, heal any emotional trauma, liberate themselves from people who no longer serve them and develop an unshakable sense of self-worth.

The second half of the book teaches readers how to identify archetypes in others and themselves, navigate the world of online dating, build emotional intimacy, mediate external influences and apply real-world solutions to resolve relationship problems.

Ultimately, Committed aims to help you find and keep the love you deserve: an authentic, impassioned relationship that fills you with excitement each morning and puts your mind at ease every night.

Carmen Harra is an intuitive psychologist, best-selling author, radio show host and relationship expert. In the past 25 years, she has helped over 40,000 people rediscover peace of mind, reclaim personal power and regain joy. Her clients come from all walks of life, from the lady next door to Hollywood celebrities and eminent politicians. She’s the author of international best-sellers like Everyday Karma, Decoding Your Destiny, The Eleven Eternal Principles, and Wholeliness, among others. Carmen has been featured in such publications as The New York Times, New York Post, and New York Daily News, and on shows like Good Morning America, The View, Good Day New York, the Today show, and Fox News. She currently hosts Miracle Guidance for Everyday Life every Tuesday on OMTimes Radio.

Alexandra Harra is a certified life and relationship coach and author, while also boasting commendable career accomplishments as a writer. She writes regularly for renowned publications such as The Huffington Post and proactively aids her mother’s mission to bring joy and love into people’s relationships.
