FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

New Adventure Follows Playful Puffin Árni “Off The Beaten Path”

Playful puffin Árni and his best friend Birta embark upon another lively adventure in Puffins Off the Beaten Path, the delightful follow-up to RA Anderson’s Puffins Take Flight.

This time, Árni and Birta are exploring Iceland’s breathtaking landscape in search of two lost lambs, but along the way, they come face-to-face with a predator, the Artic Fox, and other an-imals in Iceland.

Young readers can join Árni and Birta on their adventure, as they meet Icelandic horses, sheep, and reindeer, and experience other natural wonders of Iceland. Meanwhile, the puf-fin parents take on a journey of their own as they venture beyond their puffin colony to search for their wayward little ones, encountering Whooper Swans and a family of sheep.

Eye-catching from start to finish, Puffins Off the Beaten Path features photographs captured by the author as she explored the beauty of Iceland. The story is also woven with fun facts that readers will enjoy, including how Icelandic farms manage to grow their own fruit despite the cold temperatures and why sheep are allowed to walk in the streets!

Puffins Take Flight and Puffins off the Beaten Path are the first two books in Anderson’s Puffin Explorers Series. Watch for future escapades with Árni and Birta in the upcoming Puffins Encounter Fire & Ice.

Author RA Anderson is a wanderer who has lived all over, from California to Belize, and currently, home is a town called Rome, in Georgia that is!

A lifelong passion for creative writing and photography became her life. Her award-winning photographs have been featured in table books, magazines and front-page news, and her writing has been published in magazines, poetry books and children’s books. Her If Pets Could Talk series includes Cats, Dogs, Farm Animals and A Service Dog. Iceland, The Puffin Explorers Series is her newest children’s series. She also recently released a YA book, Girl Sailing Aboard the Western Star.

Three boys—her heart and soul—call her Mom. She and her husband are recent empty-nesters, leaving them more time to travel.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

AM I … Guides Readers Toward Personal, Authentic Faith

There is a crisis of faith in today’s world, but it’s probably not what you think. The crisis isn’t that people have stopped believing, it’s that believers don’t have deep, personal connections with what they believe in.

The concepts of faith and belief have been relegated to holy books filled with stories that happened a long time ago. Believers may revere the book, but never read it. They may believe strongly in one religion or another, without really understanding what their religion stands for. As a result, God has become an impersonal, generic concept that sits on the outskirts of daily life, governing from on high in a place far, far away.

Building a life of authentic, personal faith must begin with truly understanding what we have faith in, if we have faith in anything at all, explains author and international speaker Scott MacLellan.

In his book, Am I, MacLellan masterfully guides believers deeper into a personal relationship with the God they worship, whomever that may be. The goal of Am I is not to tell readers what to believe, but to uncover what they already believe on a personal level. Through questions posed to God himself, AM I takes readers beyond the faith of their childhood and community and into a faith that is specific and unique to their lives.

MacLellan has written two versions of Am I. The shortened edition, Am I … The Four Fun-damentals of Faith, is for newer believers who might still be exploring what faith really means. The full version, Am I … Building a Life of Personal Faith, is for the evolving believer. It covers all the material in the condensed version plus several additional topics.

Author, international speaker on faith and entrepreneur Scott MacLellan has impacted multiple organizations whose missions are to help the impoverished, the addicted or those who struggle with illness. When not speaking on one of these subjects, he can be found working with a skilled team of business leaders, or on the coast of South Carolina where he shares his home with his wife of 34 years and his amazing 7-year-old grandson. He has two grown daughters, and more grandchildren are on the way.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Many Of Life’s Questions Answered At WordsForAll.org

Dr. Pieter Noomen was a remarkably insightful writer. He wanted to help us believe that some things are possible – even if they can’t be proven. He personally experienced a profound connection with the source of all existence and he shares these experiences through his writings at www.wordsforall.org. For anyone not wanting to wait until the end of their earthly life for answers, they can easily access the website at any time.

Born in the Netherlands, Pieter Noomen completed doctoral studies in theology and pastoral psychology at the Free University of Amsterdam and was senior minister of three protestant churches. He later worked as a psychotherapist and staff member of a Los Angeles metropolitan church.

Dr. Noomen passed away earlier this year but it was his desire to leave the website open so people can visit it as often as they please to enjoy his writings. Dr. Noomen shared what he discovered through transcendent experiences — something he asserts can be achieved by every human being who is willing to open his or her mind to the information from the universe.

An example of what you will find at Dr. Noomen’s informative website:

“From someone who doesn’t consider himself to be any wiser than you, readers, probably are. The secret is that I don’t create wisdom. It’s given to me on my deepest spiritual level. Like my other body-parts know how to function, so my brains do – if I let them. In other words, it is given to us by the core-spirit of all being: by the One Who Is the Life Force in everything. We on earth are clearly badly disconnected from that Source. Yet, as this website shows, not completely. Direct contact is possible, if we want it. It enables us to see the truth and to share its wisdom. This comes from being a genuine and caring person.”

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

This Beautiful Book Invites Readers To Experience The Bible As A Single, Unified Story

The most popular and influential book in the world is also the least understood. Its sheer volume of history, poetry, genealogy and mystifying prophecies can prove puzzling — even intimidating — for readers. And since the Bible is often taught or read in pieces, readers are left with mere fragments of what should be a vibrant, cohesive mosaic.

This Beautiful Book: An Exploration of the Bible’s Incredible Story Line and Why It Matters Today by Steve Green, founder of the Museum of the Bible, with contributions from Bill High, invites readers to freshly engage the Bible and to understand it as one amazing story.

Green takes readers on a journey through the many stories of the Bible, some familiar and others less so, highlighting themes woven throughout the ancient writings.

Drawing upon insights gained through developing the first world-class Bible museum, Green reveals the completeness and transformative power of Scripture. Green helps readers see the story within the story and makes the careful connections that help us appreciate the richness of the Bible as a single story. Each page will spark faith in a God who speaks to us across the centuries.

A truly captivating experience, This Beautiful Book will instill in readers a deep appreciation for Scripture and its profound connection to our own life stories.

Author Steve Green is the President of Hobby Lobby and along with his wife, Jackie, co-founded the Museum of the Bible. He grew up in Oklahoma City. At age 7, he glued picture frames together for the family start-up business. With his father (David Green) as CEO, Steve became the president of that little start-up business, which is now known as Hobby Lobby —the nation’s largest privately held arts and crafts retailer. Over the years, Steve has been on a journey to experience the Bible as one beautiful story.

Bill High practiced law for 12 years before becoming the CEO of The Signatry. His mission is to help others live a life of significance through family, legacy and generosity. He and his wife, Brooke, have four children, two sons-in-law and three grandchildren. He can be found at billhigh.com and thesignatry.com.
