The simple techniques that Deborah describes will change the way a woman looks at herself and the way they make themselves up! "I can't make you beautiful in the way you were when you were younger. I can't make you young. But I can help you appreciate what you have. I can make the most of what you have." ### Downloadable cover image: The Grace Factor   The Grace Factor: Makeup Techniques for the Woman over 50 is available at most bookstores, through Parasource Marketing & Distribution Canada or on Castle Quay Books web site.

She is a proponent of not trying to mask the features you don't like but rather accentuating those you do like. I am certain you are going to find answers to questions that have plagued you for years, and you will come away with knowledge that will help you to be the best you can be." - Jane Iredale, Founder and President, Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, Ltd For more information visit: www.parasource.com or www.castlequaybooks.com For more information, author interviews or book reviews: Larry N Willard - publisher lwillard@castlequaybooks.com

ATLANTA, GA, February 20, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- On February 18, my friend and sister Norma [Roe No More] McCorvey passed away. Norma was a valiant voice for justice in the anti-abortion war. We will miss her. Pray for her family and loved ones. Read a statement from her family HERE. While dreaming that morning, I heard this: "Your daddy's a grouch." While opening my eyes, I either thought or replied: "Nope. My Daddy [FATHER GOD] is a King!" I didn't know that as the day progressed I would hear the news of Norma's poignant death or receive a text about First Lady Melania Trump's tender rendition of "The Lord's Prayer" at a rally for her husband President Donald Trump at his U.S. Tour rally in Florida that day. READ FULL ARTICLE HERE My dream was a confirmation of the sovereignty of God. However, sometimes grumpy, self righteous and merciless judgment creeps into the hearts of God's children. When this happens, since we say we are like our Father, it's easy for others to think our Father is a grouch when we act this way. Earlier last week I had turned on the TV to national news before I read my Bible verses for the day. Usually I try not to do this because I need daily heavenly fortification to help me face the problems of the world. However, that morning I overrode my daily regimen: “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” – Matthew 6:34 MSG While standing before the television as I flipped back and forth among the programming, President Trump was being hammered by hostile media.  As he described how he was still draining the swamp while bringing new jobs back into America, I began to cheer him on; hoping that he would also speak of his reversing tax payers' funding to abortion providers outside of America as well as the appointments of Dr. Ben Carson to HUD and a prolife Supreme Court Justice. Meanwhile, I was in danger of putting my confidence in President Trump rather than God. Realizing that I was slipping towards emotional reactions, I came to my senses, turned off the television and began to pray: “The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know... for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in [peace].” – 1 Timothy 2:1-3 MSG Thursday had been a media day for me, filled with interview responses to my blogs and media appearances regarding race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism; and not enough time praying and meditating in the presence of God. All of the hoopla over my recent interviews had begun to subside as I released a blog that said that race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism across the aisles must cease. On Thursday I texted some fellow prayer warriors: "VERY intense warfare. Heart was getting heavy. On a call right now about exposing spiritual darkness and averting disaster." Friday morning soon after turning away from the TV, I joined a conference call where a report of a "Trump Resistance Movement" was discussed. We wondered if the "Resistance" really understands that their movement is fueled and funded by those who support abortion, anarchy and the like? Do they seriously want to resist restoring jobs from overseas, restoration of our inner cities, putting Americans back to work? Are they seriously resisting ending racism, reproductive genocide, sexual perversion, and global terror? On that phone conference call I shared a word from our "prayer warriors" camp: "Praying to circumvent the demonic structures and infrastructures and traps. Guidance by Holy Spirit. Political correctness is serious witchcraft (mind control). Don't ask God to show up. He is waiting for us to show up. [to wake up, get up and get busy]" I was reminded of many lessons last week: Don't turn on the TV before prayer and Bible reading [and coffee maybe]. Turn off the TV [and radio and social media and human conversation] and pray when your emotions get ahead of your spirit. Pray with encouraging partners who can uplift with unbiased input. Avoid all strife. Love and forgive. Seek highest ground of Agape Love as well as nonviolent conflict resolution.  Spend quality time with God. Pray without filtering the Bible or making God's Word a "have it your way" buffet. ### To schedule an Interview with Alveda King, email Jackie@TruthPR.com, call 662-259-0988 or book online here.

Atlanta, GA, February 13, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- In an effort to address current "hot topics" during Black History Month, Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn released the following opinion: The matter of Senator Elizabeth Warren invoking the persona of a civil rights icon to make a point is just the most recently noticed form of tricky political ploys. It’s bad enough that Senator Warren’s voice was silenced while her male counterparts were allowed to speak; apparently by a collaborative approach across the isles. That sexist moment in and of itself is questionable, invoking shades of duplicity over the ongoing battle to define women's rights. Then there's the nasty sting of both Bible baiting and race baiting.   Race baiting according to Merriam-Webster, is “the unfair use of statements about race to try to influence the actions or attitudes of a particular group of people.” Race bating, using the vantage point of skin color or ethnicity  as an emotional trigger to stir up the public and distract people from reasonably understanding and responding to pertinent issues at hand is a deceptive and counterproductive political practice.   Another equally dangerous distraction that is used to distract the American people is “Bible baiting.” Similar to race baiting, Bible bating takes scriptural context and twists it around to fit a particular political message. Both are deadly traps, enemies to civil rights and human rights. In the meantime, it's important to resist shutting down honest conversations about racism, sexism and religion while confronting the problem of using such conversations for manipulation of questionable agendas. At the end of the day, we want to use nonviolent conflict resolution strategies to combat the triple evils, not feed them. For at least the last four decades or so, race baiting,  Bible baiting and sexism have been used to distract the American people from the plague that has had the greatest negative impact on human life – abortion.  Below are race related quotes from several politicians. Those quoted below espouse either pro-abortion or prolife platforms.  Each has intentionally or unintentionally played “the race card” in using their chosen emotionally charged words to make a point in the conversations below.   Some of these quotes are from Democrats, some are from Republicans.  Most of these cited have apologized for their words once they were published. The quotes are cited simply as examples from just a handful among thousands of political remarks that have resulted in racial tension and disharmony. CLICK HERE FOR QUOTES AND FULL TEXT OF ARTICLE "Each of these quotes, in their own way, caused political firestorms."   "Across the congressional isles, race baiting, Bible baiting and sexism have clouded one of the major civil rights issues of our times – the right to be born. People become so distracted by the racial, gender and religious posturing that they forget just how many Americans are dying from abortion, sickness, poverty, violence and other forms of genocide and eugenics in our nation. "Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was a progressive in her era and she would be a progressive today, supporting the race baiters. She wanted fewer of those she called “unfit.”  She wanted what she called “a cleaner race.”   "However, God’s Word teaches us that there is no “cleaner” or more “fit” race, only one human race.  “He made from one blood every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth…. (Acts 17:26)”   "It’s time that we stop allowing ourselves to be divided.  Those who use ethnicity, skin color, political preference, religion, income, gender, physical ability or lack of such, or any other classification to divide our communities for their own political gain ultimately do not care for us.  They care for themselves and their power."   "The next time a self-proclaimed progressive from any political party uses sexism, Bible baiting or race baiting to say that abortion benefits the African American community ask how the termination of 17 million black babies since Roe V Wade of 1973 helps anyone.  You might be called a devil and a racist for asking, but those 17 million saints in heaven will call you friend. "Finally, this precautionary warning regarding Bible baiting, race baiting and sexism should by no means preclude healthy discussions that would bring an end to these triple evils. Let's not shut the conversation down. Instead let's dig deeper. "In doing so, Let us each pray; then continue to purpose within our own heart to examine our motives and act for the highest good." "Examine your motives, test your heart, come to this meal in holy awe.” - 1 Corinthians 11:28 MSG To Schedule an Interview email Jackie@TruthPR.com or  Contact: Leslie Palma 347-286-7277

The Story of the Matthew Bible

For release in the Spring: the world’s first book about this 1537 Reformation bible, the only English bible bought with blood.   “This is the untold story of the Matthew Bible, which formed the basis of the King James Version, though unacknowledged” – Author Ruth Magnusson Davis. CANADA | February 9,2017 | TruthPR.com | -- The Matthew Bible was the work of three men. William Tyndale translated the New Testament and the first half of the Old before he was killed. His friend Myles Coverdale gave us the rest of the scriptures. Then a third man, John Rogers, compiled their work, added Reformation commentaries, and published it all as the Matthew Bible. But then he was burned at the stake by Bloody Queen Mary.  But the Matthew Bible lived on. It formed the basis of King Henry’s Great Bible, and from there went into the King James Version. Computer studies have shown that the KJV New Testament is 83% from the Matthew Bible. “It has been said that new histories are only justified if the subject matter has been neglected or if it has been misrepresented. Both these things are true of the story of the Matthew Bible,” Ruth said. And she ought to know. She is a retired lawyer, and a scholar of Reformation history and early modern English language and grammar. She founded the New Matthew Bible Project, and worked for seven years to update the New Testament, which was published in early 2016 as The October Testament. It has been well received and the hardcover has already gone to a second printing. Ruth answers such questions as: What is the Matthew Bible? Who translated the Matthew Bible? Why should we care? Why is this important? You have finished the New Testament and published it under the name The October Testament. Can you tell us about it?   About the Author:Ruth Magnusson Davis, a Canadian, is a Reformation Anglican, and a retired lawyer with an undergraduate degree in languages.  In 2009 she founded the New Matthew Bible Project, dedicated to gently updating the Matthew Bible, a little-known Reformation Bible (“that which we first received”). She began with the New Testament, which is the work of William Tyndale. In 2016, after seven years of work, Ruth published her gentle update of Tyndale’s New Testament as “The October Testament.” She calls it the only modern bible that is not.

ATLANTA, GA., February 1, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- In response to President Trump's roster of cabinet appointees and new nominee for Supreme Court Judge Neil Gorsuch, Evangelist Alveda King of Civil Rights for the Unborn salutes "our President." She blogs today: "Dear America, President Trump's appointments can solve America's abortion crisis. The connections are uncanny to say the least. "For example, for the past eight years, The Supreme Court, Social Security, Failing Public Schools, tax issues and voter registration problems, and women’s health crisis have been connected to liberal abortion policies. With millions of tax dollars lining the abortion industry's coffers and nearly 60 million legal abortions in America to date, no wonder public schools are closing,social security is drying up, women are suffering from abortion related health problems, and on and on and on. Tax funding to abortion providers depletes the Human Resources, the Human contributions of America! It's time to slay the beast!" In her new book America Return To God, Evangelist King encourages America to pray for our President,all leaders, those in authority and for everyone on earth. Her message ‘to the man in the Oval Office,’ “Yes, Drain the Swamp President Trump! Defund Planned Parenthood.” “I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.” – 1 Timothy 2:1-2 ### To Schedule an Interview with Alveda King, Click here or email Jackie@TruthPR.com

If I Had a Parenting Do Over

New Parenting Book from Youth Culture Expert Jonathan McKee DALLAS, Tex., February 1, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- Jonathan McKee understands the joy and the challenges of parenting. In his new book If I Had a Parenting Do-Over (Shiloh Run Press, February 2017) McKee offers real, practical help to parents who would rather learn from someone else’s firsthand experiences in hopes of circumventing their own parenting mess-ups. McKee comments “My own kids, now 19, 21 and 23 are now out of the house, in college and making decisions on their own. As my wife and I watched this we couldn't help but look back at our parenting and ask, ‘Did we equip them for this?’ Or ‘Could we have done this better?’” McKee shares 7 “do-overs” from his own parenting flubs, while offering encouraging advice to help today’s parents. With more than 20 years of experience working with teenagers and studying youth culture, Jonathan offers real-world help for all parents – especially parents with teens in the home. Advance praise for McKees new parenting book includes best-selling author and speaker Shaunti Feldhahn who states, “Every parenting book from Jonathan McKee is a gem, and this one is no exception. Combining his own experience with what other parents have said they wish they had done differently, he clearly presents better ways to lead and connect with your kids, at any age”. President of Focus on the Family, Jim Daly, comments “Do you ever wish you had a parenting mentor to walk alongside you, share the mistakes they made as a parent, and teach you how to avoid those same pitfalls? Now you do! Jonathan McKee offers timeless wisdom for parents who want to look back on their kids’ childhood someday and honestly say they have no regrets.” Delivered with a refreshing blend of humor and vulnerability, McKee’s candid approach grips parents immediately; then real-world application equips them with solid, helpful practices they can actually use in their own homes. With chapters like “Let It Go,” “Press Pause,” and “The Yes Factor,” McKee draws from his years of parenting his own kids and making tweaks in his parenting style along the way, while providing the honest answers today’s parents are seeking.          Audio Download for Radio                                                                                                           If I Had a Parenting Do-OverSeven Vital Changes I’d MakeBy Jonathan McKeeShiloh Run Press | February, 2017 | ISBN 978-1-68322-067-1 To Schedule an Interview, click here or email Jackie@TruthPR.com About Jonathan McKeeJonathan McKee is the author of twenty books including the brand new http://www.jonathansresources.com/ProductDetails.aspx%3FID=35">If I Had a Parenting Do-Over, 52 Ways to Connect with Your Smartphone Obsessed Kid; More Than Just the Talk; Sex Matters; The Guy's Guide to God, Girls and the Phone in Your Pocket. He has over 20 years youth ministry experience and speaks to parents and leaders worldwide, all while providing free resources for parents on his website TheSource4Parents.com.

#CovertheMarch

ATLANTA, GA, January 26, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- As we get used to expecting the unexpected, President Trump shines the spotlight on tomorrow's March for Life in DC. At the top of his first 100 days, the "man of the hour" points out that the crowd may be bigger than reported because that the media doesn’t give much air time to the annual event.  Every year for the last 43 years pro-life activists have convened on Washington to march for life in protest for all the babies being aborted in America and around the world. This yearly March for Life gathering occurs each January on or about the anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision, January 22, 1973. Ironically, was born on January 22, 1951. So this "for such a time as this" Kairos Moment is personal for me in many ways, including my post abortive testimony.  During previous years, the March coverage has been sparse to say the least. Historically the coverage has been unfavorable, casting the participants in a less than significant light.  Added to the slights is the tendency underestimate the crowd size, the tens of thousands often gathering in inclement weather.  However, there is a dramatic shift of events this year. In a recent interview with ABC’s David Muir President Donald Trump was asked about last week's  Women’s March (which received a lot of media coverage). It's important to note that participation of prolife women were shunned at that event.  It’s actually refreshing to have a president in office who supports the sanctity of life and is willing to speak the truth and expect the media out for not doing the same. From our vantage point, the pro-life movement is not asking the media to choose our side over another. We just want fair and balanced coverage, coverage of the truth. I'm in DC for prayer services tonight and in the morning. Please join us, and you can also March actually, and virtually on live stream on EWTN! Finally, if you can’t be there, please pray for all who will be marching for LIFE! ### To Schedule an Interview with Alveda King, click here or email Jackie@TruthPR.com

ATLANTA, GA. January 23, 2017 | TruthPR.com | – “The die is cast and the path is clear for America to learn that abortion is not health care. Abortion kills babies and all too often harms the wombs, health, psyche and souls of mothers. By reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ which saves the lives of thousands of babies and women, President Trump is raising the bar for genuine concern for the lives and health of mothers and our children,” says Evangelist Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life. The Christian Evangelist is a voice for life, women’s equity, and civil rights. King, along with Bishop Harry Jackson, Pastor Darrell Scoot and many other diverse presenters, was a featured speaker at the 58th Inaugural Prayer Service at The National Cathedral in Washington, D. C. She has long noted her confidence in God and not humans, and said:  “It was just awesome to attend the worship service with President Trump, Vice President Pence, their wives and families. God will use not only President Trump, but all who are willing to heal America.”  “Thank you President Trump, for caring enough about the lives of women, mothers and children, by reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy’ during your first 100 days in office.” President Donald Trump signed an executive action on today reinstating the ‘Mexico City Policy, which bars international non-governmental organizations that perform or promote abortions from receiving US government funding. The policy was enacted by the Reagan administration, only to be rescinded by the Obama administration in 2009, allowing during that time, for NGOs that performed abortion procedures to receive US tax payer funding for other programs, including those related to contraception access and post-abortion care. Referencing data from the popular book RECALL ABORTION by Priests for Life colleague Janet Morana, Evangelist King reminds America that “abortion kills babies, and often injures and kills mothers. The wombs of the women of America have been under siege for far too long. Abortion and harmful contraceptives are not health care.” Evangelist King also joins Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life in urging Congress to pass “The No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act – H.R. 7.” According to Father Pavone, H.R. 7 will write the Hyde Amendment into permanent law; extending the measures covering all federal spending, as well as ending taxpayer funding of abortion providers through Obamacare. “Currently, the Hyde Amendment, which has saved an estimated 2 million lives by restricting abortion funding for programs such as Medicaid, must be approved every year by Congress.  H.R. 7 will make it permanent, so that it isn't necessary to have this annual budget battle.   “By extending the Amendment so that it covers all federal spending, not just programs funded through the Health and Human Services spending bill, it will no longer be necessary for Congress to have multiple votes on multiple measures each year regarding abortion funding from various government funding sources,” explains Father Pavone.

“Every Light Aircraft Pilot Should Have This Book. It May Save Your Life.” -Mark Rose February 2, 2017 | TruthPR.com | -- An avowed atheist, Mark Rose turned to God for the first time when he was 22-years-old as his plane ran out of fuel flying through a massive snowstorm in the Alaskan bush. “If there is a God, I need your help now,” Rose said. Immediately after that prayer, the plane popped out of the snowstorm. “Before me were the beautiful lights of Kotzebue – it might as well have been the lights of heaven,” he recalls. Rose chronicles this story and his years as a bush pilot, hunter and trapper in LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS. At 16 Rose learned to fly, and by age 22 had become a bush pilot who helped maintain a fleet of helicopters that worked on the Alaska pipeline. In LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS you’ll have a front seat view of the thrills of bush planes and helicopters operating in the most dangerous conditions on Earth, flying in minus 60 temperatures and horrific storms, airborne among the magnificent mountains and glaciers that only Alaska has to offer. The book opens with a look at early history of the 49th State, leading to the eventual use and development of a new tool of transport – the single engine airplane. While LAST OF THE LONG HUNTERS weaves together thrilling stories of an Alaskan bush pilot, it ultimately compels readers to grapple with its final truth. “Everything I read in the Bible is either a lie or its true. It’s all or nothing. From reading the Bible I understand God is my creator,” Rose said. “If Jesus can raise someone from the dead and forgive my sins, that’s exactly what God has for me.” What People Are Saying: “I highly recommend this book! This is a fantastic read with a big payoff. This is a great read for anyone who loves history, aviation, hunting and true-life stories. We've all enjoyed hearing those unbelievable stories growing up, around a campfire or the dinner table. Those stories that have you on the edge of your seat and the ones that creates heroes. This book is an incredible story and a true story the author lived through and changed his life forever. In addition I enjoyed the setup with the history of Alaska, his growing up in Alaska, the visual journey the author takes you through heading into the vast unknown of the Alaska territory. I'm not a pilot but I found myself following the author's routine and there are a lot of tips in the appendix of the book that are his notes to other pilots where he is wanting to pass his wisdom along. Looking forward to reading more from the author!” - Rodney Hatfield, past director of Bible sales worldwide for Thomas Nelson To purchase the book go to GenesisAlive.com.
