“Finding the Beautiful You” Guides Readers to Discover Their True Self

We all struggle with our self-confidence at some point and often question our self-worth. In Lisa Cassman’s latest book, “Finding the Beautiful You” she helps readers discover who they are.

San Antonio, TX (USA), November 9th, 2017 — Are you plagued by an inner voice reminding you of your faults and shortcomings? We all struggle with our self-confidence at some point and often question our self-worth. In Lisa Cassman’s latest book, “Finding the Beautiful You” she helps readers discover who they are. With a pen in one hand and the Bible in the other, Cassman guides readers through the process of examining their self-worth to truly find their beautiful self.

“As a licensed minister and motivational speaker, women frequently approach me asking for a book that outlines the content of my workshops on self-confidence,” said Lisa Cassman, author. “I realized that women were hungry for a guide that would help them address past hurts and disappointments so they could focus on the joy the future holds as their true beautiful self.” Thus, the birth of “Finding the Beautiful You.”

In Cassman’s book, she offers a variety of interactive exercises that force readers to truly absorb the information and personalize the content to help with their own self-discovery. Used as a workbook, readers are encouraged to write their thoughts to emotional prompts like “I wish I could change…”

Additionally, throughout the book, readers are directed to read specific scripture passages and write down their feelings. Cassman has selected a variety of Biblical text to support her belief that God loves us and has a special and unique purpose for each of us. “Finding the Beautiful You” was written to help readers discover the positive message that can be found in scripture and our own self-examination.

“It is one thing to read a book, but another to truly be immersed in the content,” said Cassman. “By encouraging readers to examine the hurts and disappointments in their past; take them out, look at them, forgive themselves and then finally put them behind them, I hope readers will finally see their wonderful value.”

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+139:14&version=NIV)

“The minute we give God our cares and concerns to carry, He lightens our load,” said Cassman. “However, we also need to forgive ourselves and let go. Through “Finding the Beautiful You” I hope that readers will finally be able to put aside their fears and concerns and focus on the positive message God has for our life.”

“This is a beautiful book,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “The format is very user-friendly. I found that I had a pencil close at hand to jot down my thoughts and my Bible next to me so that I could immediately read the scripture Lisa mentions. She doesn’t give the answers but encourages the readers to take part in the process and find peace and understanding within the word of God.”

Finding the Beautiful You is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in paperback for $12.95 and $6.99 for the e-book. Visit http://www.lisacassman.com to learn more about her workshop “New You – New Life:  7 Steps to Boosting Self Confidence” and her other services.

Inspirational Business Book “Journey of North Denver Johnnie” Offers Advice on Success

“Journey of North Denver Johnnie: Using Street Smarts to Add Value to Your Career” is filled with real life examples and lessons to help first time managers, front line employees and even senior managers get the most from their career.

Tampa, FL (USA), November 5th, 2017 — In today’s business environment, professionals need to take charge of their career journey, however, that shouldn’t require reinventing the wheel. “Journey of North Denver Johnnie: Using Street Smarts to Add Value to Your Career” is filled with real life examples and lessons to help first time managers, front line employees and even senior managers get the most from their career.

“I wanted to create a legacy of the life lessons I have learned,” said John Santone about his new book. “We are all in control of our future successes and in this book I have captured some of the “aha moments” I’ve experienced through the ups and downs of my life. My hope is that others will benefit from the lessons so that they are able to strive for and achieve their best professional life.”

Each chapter chronicles an experience from the author’s personal and professional life and ends with a North Denver Johnnie Lesson, like the following from Chapter 33:

“If you’re willing to do all you can to reach your potential, don’t settle by working for a company that offers you only the ability to earn a living!”

One key belief that Santone puts forth in the book is the value and importance of understanding company goals and aligning yourself with your manager. In order to be effective and be recognized in your job you have to take ownership of your successes and communicate clearly with your boss the goals you have set for your future.

Santone encourages readers to let go of their past and focus on the future by being the best at your job every day. Observe others in the workplace and determine what it will take to be the best in your department and then do it; today, tomorrow and every day.

“I believe that each and every day you must do the very best job possible, think about your future by investing time and effort to improve your current skill set,” said Santone. “Additionally, you should work to acquire new skills that may prove as “difference makers” when your name comes up during management meetings involving personnel and promotions.”

“John has lived quite a life in business and personally,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “He does a great job of sharing his life lessons and offering great tips for how we can succeed in business and life. A must read for anyone who wants to do more with their career.”

Face each day with a can-do spirit and remember the words of North Denver Johnnie when he says: “Never give up, especially when it is your turn!”

Journey of North Denver Johnnie is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in hard cover for $25.95 paperback for $17.95 and $6.95 for the e-book.

A Universal Message of Kindness in the Debut Children’s Story “The Christmas Tree Nobody Wanted”

First time children’s author Jerry Rosenstein brings to life a message of kindness, creativity and generosity with his story of Jeffrey and his father.

Los Angeles, CA (USA), September 16th, 2017 — In a time where news tends to vacillate between political division and natural disasters comes a sweet, children’s story that transcends season, age and ethnicity. First time children’s author Jerry Rosenstein brings to life a message of kindness, creativity and generosity with his story of Jeffrey and his father. Although Jeffrey excitedly awaits the wonders of Christmas, he is also aware of those less fortunate and thus begins his tale of giving.

“I wanted to create a story that helped parents talk with their children about the benefits of giving to those less fortunate,” said author Jerry Rosenstein. “It starts with a real experience I had with my children in which we wondered what happened to the left over trees that have been cut down for Christmas. Like the character Jeffrey, we wondered what would happen if we spruced those trees up to give to someone who otherwise might not have a decorated tree for the holidays.”

That simple act is the foundation of the powerful message Rosenstein hopes parents impart on their children. Everyone deserves to have a sense of peace; a sense of trust in the fact that they know where their next meal will come from and that they’ll have a roof over their heads. For those who are less fortunate, we can come together and make a difference. Every little action of kindness can have a powerful and life altering impact.

“The Christmas Tree Nobody Wanted” will inspire children to ask the question – ‘what can I do to help’ and hopefully will create a parent/child bonding time like Jeffrey has with his father as they work together to fix and deliver the Christmas tree.

“I am hoping to spark an interest in what it means to give rather than receive,” said Rosenstein. “Perhaps parents will find ways to instill a sense of generosity in their children; taking them to the food bank to deliver food, perhaps going through their own toys and donate those gently used and yes, find a Christmas Tree nobody wants to decorate and give to someone less fortunate.”

“The message of kindness and giving is so important today,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “This story is one that I hope parents will read to their children long after the holiday season is over for the needs will continue. Creating a lifetime habit of giving is a gift that we should all impart on our children.”

The author, who has a child with multiple myeloma, plans to donate a portion of the proceeds to one of the cancer-oriented hospitals in the Los Angeles area. Additionally, if a non-profit organization is interested in using “The Christmas Tree Nobody Wanted” for fund raising, contact Jerry Rosenstein directly for more information on potential opportunities. jrosenstein@pioneermagnetics.com

“The Christmas Tree Nobody Wanted” is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in hardcover for $19.95 paperback for $12.95 and as an e-book $6.95.

Gripping Novel “The Guardian of Aurum” Explores the Under World of Gold Mining

You are faced with a decision. Continue along the path of right and good or allow yourself to be enticed by the wealth and opportunities that are possible if you chose the alternative.

Mexico City, Mexico, September 16th, 2017 — You are faced with a decision. Continue along the path of right and good or allow yourself to be enticed by the wealth and opportunities that are possible if you chose the alternative. This is the crux of the intense drama that surrounds the leading character, Aline Belanger, Canadian national, Security expert and one of the first female security officers in the world of gold mining.

“Few people are ever exposed to the world of mining and the behind-the-scenes details that are involved with protecting personnel, assets and the reputation of a company in a hostile environment,” said author Allan Julius (A.J.) Behul. “I wanted to incorporate my own experiences in the industry to create an exciting and dangerous story with a strong female lead that readers will hopefully, relate to.”

Throughout history there have been instances where organized crime, violence, and military action are involved in the world of gold mining. The author creates an intricate blend of fact and fiction in his storyline, where one flows into the other, leaving the reader to their own perspicacity as to what is real and what is not.

The fine line between good and evil is examined closely and as the story progresses the differences between the two become hard to distinguish. As Aline is torn between the two, the reader will find themselves understanding her internal struggle and wonder how they would respond if faced with similar circumstances. As one reader said:

“There is so much negative around Aline. There is organized crime, violence, and lawlessness. Then there are the employee executions, kidnappings, extortions, and fraud everywhere she turns. It is a climate where no one can trust anyone and everyone appears suspicious and out of line. If this isn’t bad enough there is the case of the forty-three missing students on the doorstep of one of the mines. No one knows where they got to and the whole company is sent into disarray.”

“I had no idea of the danger involved in the process of gold mining,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “This book was a gripping novel that kept me engaged until the very last moment where good finally triumphs and we are left to believe in the power of right.”

Readers will be on the edge of their seat, finding it hard to put down this fast-paced page-turner from first time fiction author Behul. He is currently at work creating his next adventure involving the quest for immortality in a modern society that may not yet be ready for such a discovery.

“The Guardian of Aurum” is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in paperback for $15.95 and as an e-book $4.95. “The Guardian of Aurum” is also available in Spanish, authentically translated by the author.

A native of Canada, he speaks several languages, and has called Mexico home for close to twenty years.
