Ice Cream Scientist Shows Children How to Make Their Own Fun in the Kitchen

With a certificate in culinary arts, Geno III has come to be known as the ice cream scientist. He explains that he decided to experiment on new flavors and recipes with his own children first.

San Antonio, TX – USA, October 9, 2019 — Children and teenagers today are spending more time on cell phones and screens than ever before. For parents, it can be difficult to limit screen time and direct their children to more creative activities not involving cell phones.

Father and business-owner, Geno III came up with a great alternative—making ice cream with his four kids. “They all love it,” he explains. “Their friends love it. Even the big kids love making ice cream. It’s something we can do together, and it doesn’t involve our cell phones.”

With a certificate in culinary arts, Geno III has come to be known as the ice cream scientist. He explains that he decided to experiment on new flavors and recipes with his own children first. Needless to say, his children agreed that this was a tasty arrangement. In addition to running ice cream experiments, Geno III also owns his own ice cream truck that he drives around Indianapolis, Indiana, where he lives.

Now, Geno III has owned the ice cream truck for two years. One year after buying the truck, he founded his own company: Yungsday’s Sundaes. Running a business is difficult, says Geno III, especially because he also works night shifts for Pepsi, but his passion for ice cream keeps him going. “I like to get creative,” he explains. “When it comes to ice cream, I am always creating a lot of new things.”

This creativity helped Geno III in his latest venture: writing his first-ever book for children: “Yungsday’s Sundaes Presents Patiently Shakin’ for Ice Cream.” His goal for the book? “I hope readers see how much fun it is to make ice cream. If you’re a parent like me, this is perfect for activity time with the kids.”

Geno III also introduces Standard Operating Procedures, or SOPs, in his book to teach children yet another life skill. “I included SOPs so that children will learn something they may later take with them to use on the job.” Geno III has termed ice cream making “useful recreation.” Children are partaking in an activity that they enjoy, all the while learning important skills that will serve them in the future. Geno III will also be offering ice cream kits as well that contain all of the ingredients to make ice cream: young scientists only need to provide a bottle of water and ice cubes.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina adds, “This activity is sure to be a hit for families. I never realized that making homemade ice cream was so simple or that it could be such a fun activity. Geno III changed that.”

Award-Winning Author and Journalist Empowers Women to Overcome Fear

As an Emmy award-winning anchor and author, Romona Robinson has interviewed thousands of people who are struggling in jobs they hate, strapped by their finances, children not measuring up, relationships gone bad, or poor health.

San Antonio, TX – USA, October 9, 2019 — If you have been controlled by voices of fear, failure, and doubt, you’re like thousands of women who feel trapped by fear and circumstance. Romona Robinson knows this all too well. As an Emmy award-winning anchor and author, she has interviewed thousands of people who are struggling in jobs they hate, strapped by their finances, children not measuring up, relationships gone bad, or poor health. They have grown weary, searching for answers about why God has not come to their rescue while everyone else is seemingly living their best life.

Now, back with her second book “Your Voice is Your Power,” Robinson hopes to answer these questions through personal stories that silenced the voices of fear, anxiety, and insecurity in her own life. “The truth is I was living a lie, blinded by who society said I should be,” says the author. “Sometimes we have to speak our truth in order to move past the problem.”

It was through 30 years of interviews and community work that Robinson discovered the power of sharing her story. People had questions for her. “Women and girls in particular would ask: how were you able to push past life’s roadblocks?” Robinson realized that her stories had the potential to help others who were facing similar challenges.

Robinson made a career-changing decision: “I’m going to use my voice to help people.” She left her job in television and started writing down her own story to share with the world.

Robinson’s memoir “A Dirt Road to Somewhere” was met with “an outpouring of support.” But readers had more questions, and Robinson had more stories to tell, so now in “Your Voice is Your Power” Robinson writes intimately and honestly about the challenges she’s faced, from losing a job to losing a parent, equipping readers with the tools to start using their own voice and overcoming whatever obstacle is holding them back.

“I hope the stories in this book will help people realize that they have the power within themselves to move past those voices of fear that hold them back,” says Robinson.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “This is truly a transformative read. Robinson shows readers, step by step, how she was able to move past fear in her own life and how they can do the same thing. Readers will relate to Robinson on every page, and they will be empowered to make a change.”

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ

In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

Nassau, Bahamas, October 20th, 2017 — As you look into the face of your fellow man/woman, do you see the image of Christ? In the newest book from prolific author Clement Butler, he helps the reader learn, through Scripture, the identity of the sons of God, and God’s purpose for our life.

“What is the hope of our calling?” asks author Clement Butler. “The Father has already determined our destiny. He wants us to be just like Him. So how do we achieve that life? It involves a journey of transformation and moving from glory to glory. God’s eternal purpose includes not just the establishment of His Kingdom on Earth, but also the development of sons (daughters) who are inheritors of the Kingdom.”

In this, the fourth book in Butler’s “Teacher Series,” he uses Scripture to help us understand God’s purpose through us. It is a high calling, to be a disciple of Christ, which is an extension of The Father, and in this volume, The Image of Jesus Christ, Butler helps readers understand the transformation that must take place in order to develop/mature as sons of God.

This is a companion text to the first book “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which should be read first to truly grasp the full value of Butler’s message. Butler believes that readers must first understand God’s Purpose before we can understand our role in that overall vision. Butler references Romans 8:29 as a primary text for the foundation of his latest book:

Romans 8:29-30
29-30 God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. After God made that decision of what his children should be like, he followed it up by calling people by name. After he called them by name, he set them on a solid basis with himself. And then, after getting them established, he stayed with them to the end, gloriously completing what he had begun. (The Message (MSG))

“Readers can take comfort in God’s assurance that He has a purpose and that He requires our heart to fulfil that purpose,” said Butler. “It is a process that involves chastisement, mortification, life beyond the veil, and entering into His rest. It is, therefore, the purpose of this book to detail the journey to this destination, the journey to the image of Christ.”

Proverbs 3:6 reminds us; “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (NKJV) and in his newest book Butler provides instruction to assist us on our journey as we strive to conform to His image and move from glory to glory.

Butler is also the author of recently released “God’s Eternal Purpose: The Establishment of God’s Kingdom” which is the third in author Clement Butler’s Teacher Series and Volume One in a two-part examination of the creation, foundation and understanding of God’s Kingdom. In this book Butler focuses on what God’s purpose is for humanity and the establishment of His Kingdom. “God’s Eternal Purpose” is available at Amazon.

God’s Eternal Purpose Volume Two: The Identity of the Sons of God: The Image of Jesus Christ is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in hard cover for $29.95 and $9.95 for the e-book.

Teach Children a Love of Nature with “Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon,” A New Children’s Story

In O’Dell’s children’s story Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, we are invited to take our children by the hand and share in its wonders.

Galena, OH (USA), October 16th, 2017 — We only have one earth; one planet that sustains us and provides water, shade and an abundance of beauty. In O’Dell’s children’s story Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, we are invited to take our children by the hand and share in its wonders.

“My wife and I have long held a love of nature and I wanted to create a book for my children that expressed that wonder and delight in the environment,” said first time children’s author Kevin M. O’Dell. “Writing this story was a true labor of love and a wonderful opportunity to include my sister as she is the illustrator of the story.”

Illustrator, Megan Philips and the author spent many wonderful vacations hiking, fishing and camping with their father and together they have created a beautiful tribute to their father who first introduced them to the wonders of Mother Earth.

In the story, father and son explore the outdoors, the plants, trees and wildlife that live among the woods. While sharing their adventure, the father has the opportunity to teach his son about the importance of nature and how to care for our environment.

“My hope is to pass along the love of nature my father instilled in our family, to my children and to those that read the book,” said O’Dell. “This book is meant to be enjoyed and shared.”

The author lives in the country and is raising his children to enjoy nature walks, camping, fishing and basically anything that gets them out into nature.

There is a lesson that can be learned by studying the balance of nature. O’Dell helps readers see how animals, plants and the sun cooperate and work together. We can learn a lot about how to live and be with each other by studying the harmony found in nature. Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon will help parents inspire their families to do their own exploring.

“Children today spend more time on their smart devices than playing outside,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “This delightful story will encourage parents and their children to do their own exploring of nature and hopefully find ways to sustain and care for our environment.”

Mother Earth, Brother Sun, Sister Moon, is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in paperback for $12.95 and $7.99 for the e-book.

Handing Out Life the Newest Release from Halo Publishing International

Rev. Dr. Todd Biermann Provides Tangible Strategies for Developing Rewarding Relationships.

Grand Blanc, MI (USA), May 12th, 2016 — Relationships can be challenging. Whether the relationship is between a married couple, a parent and child or dear friends, each connection ebbs and flows through happy and challenging times. Rev. Dr. Todd A. Biermann’s new book Handing Out Life: The Simple Way to Rewarding Relationships in All of Life, provides the reader with easy to understand and implement tactics for improved communication and a deeper connection in marriage and every other relationship.

“As far back as college I have been witnessing the dynamics of relationships; those that work and those that struggle,” said author Rev. Dr. Todd Biermann. “I noted a strong correlation between the math and science I studied and the order of God’s message. I began counseling couples using three simple concepts found in the Bible of sacrifice, unconditional commitment and physical care.”

Handing Out Life: The Simple Way to Rewarding Relationships in All of Life, is divided into three sections. The first is a real life parable of Josh who is on the brink of losing everything that he holds dear; family, home, career and perhaps even his sanity. He learns new priorities and gains the tools he needs to move toward rewarding relationships. In the second portion of the book Biermann explores the words of God found in Genesis 2:24, Matthew 19:5 and Ephesians 5:31 that illustrate how Jesus loves us and we in turn should love each other. The final section offers eight Bible study lessons that delve further into the Word and how we can apply it to our lives, including a section specific to single individuals.

“Although the basic principles are rooted in Scripture, this isn’t a book just for the churched,” says Biermann. “The message is clearly one of forgiveness and spiritual strength. It applies to everyone. Those that desire a closer, healthier relationship with someone special in their life will benefit from the simple and timeless wisdom offered within the pages of Handing Out Life.”

“I have enjoyed working with Pastor Todd,” said Lisa Umina, founder and president of Halo Publishing International. “The message in his book is easy to understand and the illustrations and exercises help to solidify the lessons in a way that is memorable. His book is a great gift for newlyweds, those special couples in your life and really anyone who seeks a closer relationship with those in their lives.”

Handing Out Life: The Simple Way to Rewarding Relationships in All of Life, helps unlock the mystery to rewarding relationships with God, family, friends, work associates, and even enemies. You will be able to remember what you learn with two simple illustrations that are as clear as your hand in front of your face. Be prepared to hand out life. Handing Out Life is available as a paperback ($14.95) and in e-book format ($6.99) at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Halo Publishing.

Dr. Biermann will be giving a brief talk on Handing Out Life at 6:00p.m. and signing books until 8:00p.m. at McFarlen Library, 515 Perry Rd., Grand Blanc on Thursday, July 14. Public invited. Refreshments and door prizes (including an electronic book reader) will be provided.
