Discovering God’s Plan Within the Pages of a Children’s Book

NEW YORK—September 17, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, The Hammer of Hope, by Katie Jo Hook, is a stunning portrayal of God’s redemptive story for his creation. As an educator, Katie Jo Hook understands the importance of teaching children about the Gospel during their formative years. The Hammer of Hope fosters young readers’ need for Christ, featuring themes of relying on Christ and overcoming the odds to emphasize the power of God’s redemptive grace.

Parents will enjoy sharing the message within its pages with their children, as it will start a conversation about the Gospel and God’s plan.

Each page of The Hammer of Hope is beautifully detailed, with vibrant colors and hand-sketched illustrations complimenting the rhyming lines of the story. Within it’s unique format, Katie Jo Hook emphasizes that everyone and everything is significant in God’s redemptive plan. She encourages children to pray and study the Bible, in order to learn more about God and to draw closer to him. Hook also motivates children to share the stories they’ve read, so that others can know God the way they do.

The Impact of Self Image and Portion Control on Weight Loss

NEW YORK—September 17, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, When Food is Your Frenemy: From Obesity to Restored Health, by Jacob F. Bustos, guides those who are morbidly obese to make necessary changes to live full and healthy lives. As someone who has personally struggled with obesity, Jacob F. Bustos wants to let others in similar situations know that they are not alone. When Food is Your Frenemy shares essential techniques for adults struggling with weight loss, so that they may develop a healthy relationship with food.

Jacob F. Bustos knows how an imbalanced diet and a poor self-image can lead to excessive weight gain. His 25 years in the restaurant industry had led to morbid obesity, as well as multiple weight-related issues, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, and poor liver health. Throughout When Food is Your Frenemy, Bustos describes his experience with bariatric surgery, warning adults to make changes before they get into a similar situation.

Bustos’ experience as a chef and restaurant executive, as well as his experience with unhealthy eating habits, have  informed much of his approach to clean and controlled eating. He explains that, while bariatric surgery is a necessary procedure, it must be paired with lifestyle changes for long-term results. His approach emphasizes the importance of portion control, positive self talk, and reframing one’s mindset in order to experience lasting change. When Food is Your Frenemy also includes many recipes and dietary suggestions that are not only healthy, but they transform ordinary meals into delicious, clean versions.

Growing Spiritually Within The Christian Church

NEW YORK—September 17, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, Meant to Live: Living in Light of the Good News, by Nancy Hicks, takes an honest look at the Christian Church in America today. Nancy Hicks is determined to share the good news of Christ, but as a minister and church-attendee, she is able to recognize many trends in today’s Christian circles that don’t embody biblical principles. Meant to Live unpacks how Christians can truly live in the power and glory of the Gospel message and celebrate God’s glory within themselves and the Church.

Inspirational communicator Nancy Hicks describes four types of Christians who allow their personal convictions or past life events to define their lives, and comments on the type of testimony those Christians are providing to others. Hicks discusses how damaging it is for a Christian’s life to be defined by sin, either through a mindset of acceptance or self-castigation, and how difficult it is to build genuine relationships with those who are more legalistic and driven to be perfectionists. Hicks is hopeful that Meant to Live will provide a calling to all people, but especially those already attending church, to change their behavior in the face of God’s truth.

Meant to Live offers a vision on humanity’s calling and a way to live a genuine life gloriously following the Gospel. Nancy Hicks’ fresh point of view and conversational style combines personal stories with biblical wisdom and practical discussion questions, making each chapter easy to read and share in Christian small-groups and bible studies. Hicks includes a distinct view of humanity’s glory as seen in the Bible, an honest assessment of self, a practical guide to living in light of the Gospel, and an inspired and energized focus on the core calling in Christians’ lives.

If you would like more information about this topic, or to schedule an interview with Nancy Hicks, please call Nickcole Watkins at 516.900.5674

One Woman’s Journey to Prevent Suicide Attempts through Faith

NEW YORK—September 10, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, With Her Last Breath: A Tale of Suicide and the Hope of Heaven, by Barbara M. Roberts, provides words of hope for anyone struggling with thoughts of suicide and for any family members reeling from the loss of a loved one. Barbara M. Roberts knows the pervasive impact of suicide personally, after her niece, Kathy, took her own life. With Her Last Breath depicts Roberts’ search for answers in Kathy’s handwritten journal, left for family members following her suicide.

Prior to the loss of her niece, Barbara M. Roberts assumed, like many others, that Christians did not commit suicide. However, after reading through the pages of her niece’s journal, Roberts grew to understand the struggle of a fellow believer wrestling with suicidal thoughts. Kathy’s journal not only details the act itself, but it describes the reasons behind her suicide: why she could not stay on Earth one more day, why she was looking forward instead to her hope of Heaven.

Each chapter of With Her Last Breath is tied to a page in Kathy’s journal, intertwining the pages with stories of others and tools to help those who are suicidal as well as their loved ones. Roberts includes what warning signs to watch for, how to care for someone who is struggling, and where to turn in a crisis. With Her Last Breath weaves reminders of God’s love and faithfulness throughout its pages, to help anyone facing the threat of suicide, so that they may make sense out of their own suffering and emerge with a vision of God’s hope for their lives.

If you would like more information about this topic, or to schedule an interview with Barbara M. Roberts, please call Nickcole Watkins at 516.900.5674

Roberts is Director of Caring Ministry at Cherry Creek Presbyterian Church, part of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church denomination.  She is a committed Christian, an experienced grief counselor, pastoral counselor, speaker, and directs numerous programs under the umbrella of Caring Ministry.

NEW YORK—September 10, 2019—Morgan James’ new self-help book release, The Secret Lies Within: An Inside Out Look at Overcoming Trauma and Finding Purpose in the Pain by Anne Beiler and Emily Sutherland, shows readers how to use the power of confession to finally push past the pain that is weighing them down. The Secret Lies Within was written for anyone who is still feeling the pain of a traumatic life experience.

After experiencing overwhelming pain in their lives, people often have a tendency to keep it to themselves and hold it as a buried secret. However, hiding the pain and shame of traumatic experiences is one of the unhealthiest ways to deal with them. The Secret Lies Within shows these people a better way—a way that relies upon the strength of people together, rather than alone.

However, many people do not know her tragic journey, which includes losing a child, being abused, and living with the trauma from those experiences for years after. Anne Beiler not only shares her personal story in detail, but also the way she finally overcame it and broke free of her pain. Through The Secret Lies Within, readers are encouraged to break the silence and find strength and relief in sharing their struggles with others.

Bipolar, Psychosis and Other Relationship Messes in New Memoir Authored by Professional Counselor

NEW YORK—September 10, 2019—Morgan James’s new release, Beyond Messy Relationships: Divine Invitations to Your Authentic Self, by Judy K. Herman, shows readers how to be resilient through struggles of relationship trauma and conflicts. The book contains psychological insights and spiritual perspectives to enact transformational change. Judy K. Herman writes with clinical expertise from her work as a licensed professional counselor, while also revealing personal struggles within her marriages. Readers gain insights into their own journey through her experiences of toxic patterns and seasons of her second husband’s psychotic episodes. Written with purposeful themes in story form, Beyond Messy Relationships demonstrates and helps readers find their authentic journey with the formula AIR—Awareness, Intentionality, and Risks.

Judy K. Herman reveals divine purpose beyond the pain of messy relationships. She provides resources for individuals or spouses to nurture wellness and resilient relationships. As a mental health service provider, Herman normalizes challenges of insecurities as prerequisites toward growing identity and purpose. In her memoir, Beyond Messy Relationships, Herman shows patterns from early development to awareness of attitudes that ultimately doom marriages. Scenes include post-divorce, remarriage, mental illness, pregnancy loss, parenting, loyalty, betrayal, adult-child relationships, and religious dogma. She de-stigmatizes mental illness while differentiating it from covert emotional abuse.

Beyond Messy Relationships presents a simple, yet challenging way to heal and thrive through the acronym AIR: Awareness, Intentionality, and Risks. This formula helps readers increase self-compassion and identify relationship “dance” patterns from family of origin to present marital confusion. With awareness, readers can be intentional to plan for needed risk-taking toward change and growth. Those struggling in long-term marriages or other relationship challenges are reminded to breathe in truth of their innate value, dignity, and worth in order to reject shame and embrace growth on their authentic journey.
