Faith Journey Includes the Good, the Bad and the Proof that God Hears Our Prayers

(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

Christine Schat sat down and wrote the truth about her life even though some of it was messy. As a teenager, she lived by her own rules, became pregnant, married young, divorced and married again. She made choices that led to the tragic death of her husband and the heartbreak of a prodigal son. She had welcomed Jesus into her life at an early age, but had repeatedly veered off course. Every time she repented, she found God’s forgiveness and mercy to be always available, always complete. This is her compelling story.

The Tree of Faith, God Wants to Answer YOUR Prayer is Schat’s deeply personal memoir recounting true stories that range from dealing with regret to letting go of guilt and letting go of shame. There were many life events that prompted Schat to seek God’s will and to ask for His help. Did God always show up in exactly the way she expected Him to? No. Were her prayers answered as quickly as she’d hoped? No. But ultimately, she recognized the constant thread of God’s love that was woven throughout her life despite her sins.

Schat’s style is easy and conversational, and laced with touches of humor. She shares the moments, thoughts and experiences that led her to a most astonishing realization in the face of adversity.

She discovered that the seed of faith planted in her at birth by the Creator could grow easily in the healthy soil of a humble heart. By spiritually cultivating that seed with life-giving prayer and sonshine, her small seedling grew into a magnificently strong, fruit-bearing tree of faith, deeply rooted and stable. She then knew, that living with Christ, everything is possible.

In The Tree of Faith, readers will discover the age-old secret to obliterating fear, guilt and shame; the personal way God answers questions; strength through adversity and the power of letting go; the unique key to turning life around; and the growing faith that looks past the impossible. Along the way, readers are invited to get involved through chapter questions.

Schat shares the good and the bad of her faith journey, with personal stories and a wealth of wisdom gleaned over decades that can give readers hope that God hears their prayers.

“Now is the time to look to the Light, renew your faith and expect God to answer your prayers!” Schat said.

Author Christine Schat is a UCLA graduate and the former owner of Fort Bragg Bakery. She loves to smile, laugh and share her stories. She currently lives in Southern California but loves to travel the country visiting family and friends. She is especially fond of her grandchildren and has been nicknamed Gram-cracker. But her greatest joy is experiencing God’s answered prayers.

How to Overcome Codependency and Build Healthy, Reciprocal Relationships

How to Overcome Codependency and Build Healthy, Reciprocal Relationships

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

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“Using neuroscience, psychology, and spirituality, Mary Joye shares how to conquer old habits of needing to rescue loved ones and friends. In this compelling book you can free yourself and learn that living well and giving well can occur naturally.” — Dr. Laurie Nadel, author of The Five Gifts

Are you a fixer, a rescuer or a people pleaser? Do you feel guilty — really guilty — saying no? Codependency once meant being involved with someone who was dependent upon an addictive substance. Today, the definition of codependency has expanded to encompass other unhealthy behaviors associated with relationships.

“Codependency is like narcissism in reverse,” explained licensed therapist, Mary Joye, LMHC. “Narcissists are self-absorbed, while codependents are hyper focused on the needs of others. And these two personalities can become instantly attracted to each other.”

In her new book, Codependent Discovery and Recovery 2.0, Joye helps readers uncover the traits, psychological roots, financial aspects and neuroscience behind their codependency, and more importantly, what to do about it.

As a healed codependent herself, Joye’s unique approach offers readers a holistic alternative to typical 12-step addiction models and covers the full spectrum of codependency.

She shows you what motivates your codependency and teaches you how to overcome the toxic thinking and behaviors associated with it by using evidence-based techniques of healing. Rather than merely learning how to say no to others, you will learn how to say yes to yourself and form healthy, reciprocal relationships.

For expedited and lasting recovery, Codependent Discovery and Recovery 2.0 includes meditations, affirmations, a quick-fix chapter and easy two-column Life Lists that allow the opportunity for self-reflection, offering readers an invaluable self-help experience.

By using these transformative cognitive behavioral tools, you can change no matter where you fall on the continuum. It is possible to reinvent yourself in a positive way while learning how to give and live well.

About the Author
Mary Joye, LMHC, is a licensed mental health counselor and regular contributor to DailyOM.com. She was interviewed in O, The Oprah Magazine in an article titled “The Greatest Love” about her prior codependency and rise from it. Formerly, she was a professional singer/songwriter in Nashville at Warner Brothers. She reinvented herself as a licensed mental health counselor at 45. As a writer and therapist, she helps people get in touch with their emotions.

Joye lives in Winter Haven, Florida. Visit her website at: winterhavencounseling.com.

Preparing for the End-Time Event: Bible Scholar Reassures Faithful that Tribulation will be Brief

Preparing for the End-Time Event: Bible Scholar Reassures Faithful that Tribulation will be Brief

(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

For those who believe in end-time prophecy, it’s important to prepare for the Day of the Lord and to share the gospel with nonbelievers. In his compelling new book, The High Sign, Bible scholar David S. Heeren reveals his unconventional interpretation of what the sign of Jesus’ Second Coming will be and shares the promises Jesus made to the faithful.

“Jesus specifically said we [believers] are not to fear, not even worry,” Heeren said. “Jesus said in addition to shortening the tribulation, he would turn it back onto the heads of the treacherous people who are destroying their nations. Additionally, the prophet Isaiah says this: The destroyers will be destroyed, and the traitors betrayed.”

In his book, Heeren shares more than 200 points of evidence involving 24 scriptural events that support what he says will be the sign of Jesus’ Second Coming. His findings are the result of 16 years of research involving Scriptures as well as independent sources. Today, he is more convinced than ever that he has identified the celestial event that will signal Jesus’ return.

His investigation began after reading the book of Isaiah, which describes great visions given supernaturally to the prophet, including many about the Day of the Lord. It was after reading Isaiah and praying Isaiah’s prayer: “Here am I, send me,” when the meaning of many biblical passages began to crystalize for Heeren, and the message of The High Sign started taking shape.

Heeren found 54 prophetic images, and the evidence mounted concerning the identity of the celestial sign of Jesus’ Second Coming, until there were more than 200 individual points leading him to arrive at unconventional interpretation that few, if any, theologians have reached as yet.

“There is not a single contradictory point of evidence, at least none that I found, and I have studied this specific subject now for 16 years,” he adds.

Heeren also explores in detail the Flood of Noah, the demolition of Sodom, the plagues of the Exodus, and the arrival and Second Coming of Christ — and how astronomical events are tied to each. To help readers recall his main ideas, Heeren provides summarization points at the end of each chapter, and concludes his book with a list of seven things for Christians to do to prepare for the Day of the Lord.

David S. Heeren is an award-winning journalist and author of 17 books. He used his background in mathematics and logic to create Tendex, the first internationally used statistical system for rating professional and college basketball players. Nine of his books have Christian themes, including the Online Book Club Book of the Day The High Sign, Day of the Lord, What the Bible has to Say about the U.S.A., The Sign of His Coming and God…or not?

Bible Scholar Reminds Christians to Be Prepared, Remain Optimistic About End-Time Event

Bible Scholar Reminds Christians to Be Prepared, Remain Optimistic About End-Time Event

(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

The Book of Revelation describes the Second Coming of Jesus as a time of great tribulation, causing some believers to fear the impending dangers of the end-time event. In his compelling book, The High Sign, Bible scholar David Heeren not only reveals what the celestial sign heralding Jesus’ return will be, but also he reminds Christians that Jesus himself spoke optimistically about the end-times and even promised to shorten the days of tribulation for believers.

In The High Sign, Heeren shares more than 200 points of evidence involving 24 scriptural events that support what he says will be the sign of Jesus’ Second Coming. His findings are the result of 13 years of research involving Scriptures as well as independent sources. Today, he is more convinced than ever that he has identified the celestial event that will signal Jesus’ return.

His investigation began after reading the book of Isaiah, which describes great visions given supernaturally to the prophet, including many about the Day of the Lord.

Minister and Psychotherapist Ponders ‘Life’s Universal Oneness’

Minister and Psychotherapist Ponders ‘Life’s Universal Oneness’
Website shares writings that detail profound spiritual transformation

(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

That all is connected, either directly or indirectly, and that the source of this all-connectedness flows from one higher presence, forms the foundation of the insights shared by minister and licensed psychotherapist Dr. Pieter Noomen on his website, www.wordsforall.org.

Dr. Noomen’s journey toward forming a conscious closeness to the source of all existence began more than 25 years ago when he studied the work of Dr. Peter D. Francuch, who communicated with what he called “the Positive State.” Dr. Noomen would go on to significantly widen his own spiritual path and have extraordinary experiences on the spiritual plane.

Dr. Noomen meticulously chronicled the communications he shared with a spiritual presence, hoping to forever change the soul of humanity with messages of healing, love, and oneness.

As he explains on www.wordsforall.org, “I can only say that the information came from a presence on my innermost spiritual level I was in communication with for some time. The words seem the result of my spirit merging with the spirit of life It/Her/Himself.”

Visitors to Dr. Noomen’s website can read about the 12 components of life through his 12 booklets: Oneness, Love, Life, Fire, Space, Connectedness, Progression, Effect, Freedom, Joy, Differentness and Harmony. Additionally, he shares 147 thought-provoking questions and the illuminating answers that came to him during his extensive communications with the All Spirit. Visitors can also read, in detail, about Dr. Noomen’s many “visits into the real reality,” learn 10 rules for praying and glean valuable insights from Dr. Noomen’s numerous lessons and stories.

The common thread throughout his writings is that directly or indirectly, life stems from one common source, and to connect with that source is the highest level of existence we can achieve on earth.

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. Later, he worked as a psychotherapist and as a staff member of a Los Angeles metropolitan church. He was involved in mental health issues like suicide prevention and hospice. Sadly, Dr. Noomen passed away in 2019, but his wealth of wisdom and insights freely shared on www.wordsforall.org will continue to inspire people throughout the world to broaden their spiritual paths.

An example from Dr. Noomen’s Wisdoms of the Week at www.wordsforall.org:

“All the horrors and cruelties of people killing people, how can we not be shocked, hurt, saddened and, for many, scared? Only one reaction is a foolproof contribution to stopping the madness of violence: It is rigorously cleansing our own personal thinking of anything negative. That way, we create and carry inside us a lasting, untouchable pocket of peace.”
