Ordinary People Extraordinary God Shares 17 True Stories of Everyday Heroes

(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

Children may never learn their names and hear their stories in Sunday school, but there are plenty of “ordinary people” all around us who have accomplished God’s remarkable work in their own individual ways. In Ordinary People Extraordinary God: 17 Personal Stories of Lives Transformed by the Love of God, author Rick Schatz shares inspirational true stories of eve-ryday people who answered God’s call to service.

“Most were not raised in Christian homes but have made a commitment to Christ and are serving him in various ways around the world,” Schatz explains. “Few, if any, would be considered superstars in the eyes of the world, but each of them is serving others in life-changing ways.”

Ordinary People Extraordinary God profiles personal friends and contacts of Schatz’s who have served Jesus in a variety of capacities, such as becoming a hospice nurse later in life, writing books, developing resources to help others in need and serving in churches. The honest accounts don’t hide the flaws and struggles that these servants endured. In fact, it’s through pointing out the insecurities and the ups and downs that Schatz underscores the fact that God can and does use “ordinary people” to reach others with His love and grace. This book also shares that all God needs from His followers is their availability because He will supply everything else that is needed to get His work done.

As readers follow the 17 journeys featured in the book, it is Schatz’s hope that the stories will encourage and challenge people to first seek God and then to serve Him for His glory.

“The goal of the book is to encourage others to seek a personal relationship with God and for those who already have such a personal relationship to dream bigger and reach for the stars in serving Him,” Schatz adds.

Author Rick Schatz earned a BS in chemical engineering and an MBA from Harvard, where he became a Christian during his second year. In addition to a long career as an executive for several major corporations, including as the founder and part-owner of Creative Waterworks, Schatz has been a deacon, elder, Bible teacher and preacher since 1969.

He has also served on the board and leadership teams of On Target prison ministry, Spiritual Counterfeits Project and the John Guest Evangelistic Crusade in Cincinnati.

Schatz officially left the business world in 1990 and served with pureHope ministry as COO and president/CEO from 1990 until 2014. He joined The Prayer Covenant in 2014, where he served as president and currently serves as COO.

Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, Schatz married his high school sweetheart, Sharon, in 1967. They have three grown sons and 11 grandchildren.

Doctor Uses His Profound Spiritual Journey to Inspire Others

Doctor Uses His Profound Spiritual Journey to Inspire Others

(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:

Now, more than ever, we need words that inspire us; words that connect us; and words that give us hope. We need Dr. Pieter Noomen’s Words For All (www.wordsforall.org).

Dr. Pieter Noomen was a man of great introspection and awareness. A minister and licensed psychotherapist, he experienced a profound transcendent journey that led him to connect on a deeply spiritual level with a higher presence. He grew to believe that, either directly or indirectly, all life stems from one common source. When we’re able to connect with that source, we reach the highest level of existence — something he posits can be achieved by every human being who is willing to open his or her mind to the information from the universe.

Dr. Noomen freely shares the abundance of transformative messages that were communicated to him on his website, www.wordsforall.org. Sadly, Dr. Noomen passed away last year, but his Words for All will continue to inspire people throughout the world.

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

“Disasters happen. The media report them. Even if we’re not directly affected, the pain involved can shake us badly; at least for a while. It always reminds us of our own vulnerability. So next to sending out mental messages of compassion and love to the victims, we can check inside ourselves our own resources for dealing with bad situations. Being consciously connected with (eternal) Life itself, is being as prepared as we possibly can get here on earth.”

Words For All Website Helps Us Draw On Our Faith During Times Of Stress

Words For All Website Helps Us Draw On Our Faith During Times Of Stress

(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:

During times of great stress, such as we’ve experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, many of us depend on our faith.

Dr. Pieter Noomen was a man who studied the Bible and other religions throughout his life. After completing his doctoral studies in Amsterdam, he moved to the US and was a senior minister of 3 churches and later a psychotherapist at a Los Angeles church.

During a period in his life when he was unhappy, Dr. Noomen experienced an extra-ordinary change that took him on a journey of communication with a presence on his innermost spiritual level. He believed that either directly or indirectly, all life stems from one common source and to be able to connect with that source would be the highest level of existence we can achieve on earth. Dr. Noomen passed away last year but through his website www.wordsforall.org, he left this special gift so anyone in the world can share his experiences.

An example from Dr. Noomen’s insightful writings at www.wordsforall.org on Joy:

When in ‘heaven’ issues do arise, viable options are considered until there’s a satisfying solution. There’s not a thing as a ‘loser.’ In the so called ‘Positive State’ no fear of rejection ever occurs. A ‘no’ means there is a better choice, but thank you for asking. Even when serious matters need attention or planned actions, any discussion is above board, they unite all involved factions. Unlike on earth, conceived by negative forces, fear nor anger fills any celestial agenda. They all trust the ultimate outcome, so in ‘heaven’ rules a happy laugh, a smile and a teasing twinkle.

Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s: The Answer Can Be Found In Med-itation, Yoga And Music

Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s: The Answer Can Be Found In Med-itation, Yoga And Music

(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

There are currently 5.8 million people in the U.S. today suffering from Alzheimer’s – a number that is expected to double by the middle of the century. Is it possible to stop or slow down this disease? Award-winning physician, scientist and author, Dr. Shuvendu Sen, says “Yes! It can be reversed, and even stopped altogether.” Dr. Sen shares expert advice and discusses the success being achieved through yoga, meditation and dancing/music therapy in Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s: A Holistic Treatment Approach through Meditation, Yoga and the Arts.

As the population of Americans with this disease continues to increase, so does the burden of caring for them. The cost of Alzheimer’s is staggering! This year alone, the cost for healthcare, long-term care and hospice services for those age 65 and older with dementia are estimated to be around $305 billion. Researchers in top institutions around the country indicate that the contributing factors to the disease (stress/hypertension) can be improved with holistic approaches, such as yoga, meditation, music and virtual reality therapy. We need an innovative breakthrough in order to make a difference; Why Buddha Never Had Alzheimer’s is the guide that can help make these necessary, far-reaching changes in medical care.

“How can meditation and yoga stop or even reverse Alzheimer’s?” he asks. “They set the mind on an inward journey, built on a novel microenvironment where stress and its damaging inflict are permanently thwarted. This bridging of the old and new creates an imperative paradigm shift in our perspective toward managing this disease.”

Listed in the US Top Physician’s list, Dr. Sen is the author of the bestselling book, A Doctor’s Diary, and is the recipient of the Nautilus Book Award, Men of Distinction Award from the New York State Senate, the Oscar Edwards Award from the American College of Physicians, and has been thrice nominated for the Pushcart Award for his columns and other works of fiction.

He has been an invited speaker to address United Nations officials, the New Jersey Senate, the Indian Consulate in New York, the World Book Fair, City University of New York, Harvard University and World Parliament of Religions. He has also been featured on many major television and radio stations.

Insightful Writings On Website Share How We Can Learn To Connect With Our Higher Power

Insightful Writings On Website Share How We Can Learn To Connect With Our Higher Power

(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:

Dr. Pieter Noomen completed his doctoral studies in theology and pastoral psychology in Amsterdam. He later moved to Los Angeles and worked as a psychotherapist and as a staff member of a church – involved in mental health issues such as suicide prevention and hospice. A humble man who believed his background was not at all spectacular but, in reality, he was a true scholar.

A drastic change took place in Dr. Noomen’s life many years ago that allowed him to take a journey of communication with a presence on his innermost spiritual level. In order to share these experiences, he set up a website, www.wordsforall.org, so that anyone would be able to learn how to connect with their Higher Power. Sadly, Dr. Noomen passed away in 2019, but his website remains open for anyone interested in connecting with their Creator to learn from his insightful writings. He wasn’t selling anything or seeking publicity; he just wanted to help others learn from his experiences.

The content of the website is unique in that it addresses each human being alive today. “Being in life, as we all are, means that we are, without exception, connected with the source of that life. That connection can be a very conscious and personal one. It is available through the very fact that we all have life,” said Noomen.

An example from Dr. Noomen’s insightful writings at www.wordsforall.org on ‘Life:’

What a trap to think that life can end. ‘Death’ is just a different configuration. All that is in existence can be changed. To be of use is why we all do have life. Usefulness is the only measure for behavior. Oneness, love, life, are all equal. The I AM ‘is’ life. All stems from that fact. For us here, just being in life is ‘it’. Living connects us with its Source. We’re fake if we deny it, yet can wake up.
