Kingwood, TX (PRWEB) April 01, 2014

On Sunday morning at Kingwood Bible Church, Holocaust survivors Ruth and Larry Steinfeld shared their remarkable stories of escaping death in Nazi Germany. Their stories of tragedy and survival gave church members a greater sense of purpose in taking part in the upcoming March of Remembrance in Kingwood on Saturday, April 26.

We have history here today, said Pastor Woody Woodward, commenting on the unique opportunity to witness the Steinfelds and Holocaust survivor, Alex Pollak, meeting with World War II veterans, and KBC church members, Bob Roush and Hugh Saye. With the declining number of living Holocaust survivors and World War II veterans, it was special for these few, who overcame in a time of great trial and hardship, to meet each another.

Ruths personal story of overcoming is one of great loss, and of finding renewed life in facing the past and experiencing the freedom forgiveness brings.

At the young age of 5, Ruths home was raided by the Nazis on this first night of Kristallnacht in 1938. That night, her father was sent to the Dachau concentration camp, where he was kept for several months.

Almost two years later, Ruths family was loaded into a cattle car and transported from Mannheim, Germany, to a concentration camp in occupied France. Upon arrival, the men were separated from the women. That was the last time she saw her father.

Ruth and her sister were later rescued by an underground group pretending to be Red Cross, as her mother made the decision to let go of all she had left, her two little girls. Ruth, crying and begging her mother to let her stay, boarded a bus by night with her sister, and watched her mother wave good-bye. They never saw her again. Of this, Ruth recounts, She gave us our life twice.

For the next several years, Ruth fled from the Nazis and ended up with a poor Christian family in a remote town. Eventually her identity was found out and she was forced to move on. In 1946, her grandfather in New York found her name in the paper and brought her to America.

Throughout these trials and many years afterward, Ruth lived in a ruthless denial of her past. So when faced with the opportunity to go to Israel for a gathering of Holocaust survivors in 1981, she asked, How can I now face that which I have suppressed for so long?

After facing the reality of her past in Israel, Ruth returned to Germany where she visited her childhood home, and in the embrace of the woman living there, she began to experience forgiveness. As she forgave the people who had caused her such pain, Ruth began to be able to see herself as a child of God, when for so long she had felt as if she were no ones child.

She attributes the new sense of peace within herself as coming out of accepting and forgiving. She has come to experience that which Pastor Woodward stated so well, When you forgive someone, you set a prisoner free. And then you find out you were that prisoner.

Ruth continued on to France where she was reunited with the daughter of the family who had sheltered Ruth and her sister. She asked her childhood friend, How was it Paulette, that your family, your parents, were brave enough to give a home to two little Jewish girls in occupied France, knowing the consequences? Paulettes answer was simple, Wouldnt you?

Ruth has faced her past, and has forgiven, but she will never forget. She encourages others to remember as well, and to ensure a similar tragedy is never allowed again. I survived because of the goodness in people, in spite of the inhumanities, and because of that I am involved with the March of Remembrance…and to remember, because history could repeat itself.

About the March of Remembrance

The Holocaust March of Remembrance in Kingwood is an opportunity for the community to remember and to honor those who suffered not so long ago. It will begin with an opening ceremony and Memorial service with testimonies from Al Marks, survivor of four concentration camps, and Steve Finkelman, a second generation survivor. Immediately following the service, the march will begin at Christ the King Lutheran Church and pass by the Veteran’s Honor Garden Memorial before completing the loop and ending with fellowship, music and refreshments.

Ruth and Larry Steinfeld serve as National Advisors and Liaisons to the March of Remembrance, which is held in over 50 cities in the United States. This is the third year it has been held in the Houston area, with marches planned in Baytown, Brenham, Kingwood, and Webster on April 26, and in Meyerland on April 27. A listing of Marches across the US can be found on the March of Remembrance website.

Written as a compilation of daily Scripture reflections that utilize author Donna Nobles life experiences to illustrate the mercy and providence of God, Nobles new book Navigating the Narrow Path to Life: Daily Reflections from a Fellow Traveler (published by WestBow Press) is a testament to Gods power and assistance to his followers in times of need.

Noble shares life lessons she has learned in her walk with God as well as a set of laws she has chosen to live by, which she calls Donnas Law. Noble says her laws are directives that firmly demonstrate the two greatest commandments given by Jesus to love God and love neighbors.

Trials come every day, Noble says. My hope is that this book will help others learn how to turn away from bad choices and choose wisely on their own path to salvation.

An excerpt from Donnas Law in Navigating the Narrow Path to Life: Daily Reflections from a Fellow Traveler:

Trust God in everything, with everything, and for everything.

Dont be a victim of your past. Forgive yourself, forgive others, and move on.

Pick your battles: not everything is worth fighting over – or for.

Leave a trail of smiles behind you.

Martinez, california (PRWEB) March 27, 2014

The two main organizations behind the now 388 day-old “555 Days of Prayer to Save America” are calling on Americans, all around the country; and, believers in God, all around the world, to pray for the victims of the Washington State Landslide Disaster.

“Oftentimes, we feel impotent against the power of nature. This is one of those times. We ask for the prayer of Americans, and “Believers in God,” Everywhere, to pray for the families of the victims. Please pray, also, for the recovery teams. Their job is emotionally ravaging as well as dangerous,” said Robert Berry, “Save America Gathering” servant leader and frequent spokesperson.

At present, the dead are numbered at 25; with 90 persons missing or unaccounted for. In addition, there are another 35 people who are reported as having “unknown” status. To view a news article regarding the slide disaster, go to: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/03/27/oso-mudslide-search/6956457/.

The “Save America Gathering” servant leaders also ask for Christians of all beliefs, globally, to join in and continue the remainder of the prayer for the purification and restoration of God’s people, His Church. The prayer is at day 33, today. Said spokesman, Robert Berry, “This prayer is crucially important in the preparation for the final 100-day-long prayer. That final prayer will be an outcry to God, for the healing and restoration of The United States of America. This prayer, which will begin on June 3, 2014, will be followed by the conclusion of the prayer initiative, “The Great Wave Offering.” All persons interested in blowing the Shofar, or ram’s horn trumpet, at their respective “Great Wave Offering” gatherings, must go to the following site, and register: http://www.shofarcall.com/events—registration.html.

To determine winners of the Gallup Great Workplace Award, a panel of workplace experts evaluates applicants and compares their outcomes against a research database composed of millions of work teams in more than 100 countries.

These award-winning organizations set a new standard for workplace excellence, said Dr. James Harter, chief scientist for Workplace Management and Wellbeing.

(PRWEB) August 11, 2014

Todd McBroom has spent the last several years writing and speaking about a topic very close to his heart: the struggles and triumphs of the successful entrepreneur. As a young man, Todd came from an economically challenged family and learned early about the value of hard work. Through the years, he has owned multiple businesses, and his successes and failures have taught him even more about operating a company successfully and how to continually improve performance.

“If you are willing to embrace an attitude of excellence and have a desire for improved performance, you can triumph in your business endeavors,” says McBroom. “However, overcoming obstacles and staying the course can be lonely. This is why I speak to groups; I want to inspire others who are going through the same struggles I did and let them know they are not alone.”

God Was Self-Employed, Todd’s latest book, delivers this message in a larger context and through the use of Scripture. For those who want to find freedom in any area of life, not only business, the theme of this book is simple: universal principles of self-confidence and hard work apply to every person at every age and in all walks of life.

Todd has spent the last few years involved in speaking engagements at churches or for network marketing meetings. He has an extensive history of training and motivational speaking in the marketing industry and has now decided to take his expertise to the corporate world. Using the laws and principles in God Was Self-Employed, Todd is available for corporate training, meetings and workshops. He is also an expert in sales training, having held the top sales position in every company he has worked for and the number seven position nationally for Vermeer.

He teaches on the law of attraction, self-image, overcoming adversity and relationship marketing. “Sales With A Business Owner Mentality” is one of his most popular topics. According to McBroom, most people sell from an employee mindset and are not able to demand respect and credibility. In order to do so, according to Todd, sales people must think like a business owner and communicate appropriately, not just have a conversation.

Todd McBroom is available for speaking engagements to groups of all sizes. He has spoken to groups of more than 10,000 and small gatherings of just a few. For more information on booking Todd as a speaker, contact Shannon Lutz from Next Century Publishing at Shannon(at)NextCenturyPublishing(dot)com or call 702.912.2405.

About Todd McBroom:

Todd McBroom is a Christian, husband and father, entrepreneur, author, and speaker. He often uses lessons in the Bible to enhance his own teaching, endeavoring to help people deal with and succeed in the real world.

SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) August 08, 2014

Author Greg Leininger sees a tragic neglect of the Gospel in the Church, which he attributes to narrowing perception of Gods glory. To correct what he perceives as a vanishing fear of God and growing disregard for the Gospel, Leininger wrote his new book, The Infinite Gospel: A Foundational Primer to the TruthAnswers for Life (published by CrossBooks).

The Infinite Gospel is the essential Gospel message in a short, easy-to-read book, Leininger says. Its both thorough and concise; far more substantial than a tract, but still easy to grasp and comprehend.

Through the use of scriptural footnotes, Leininger says the power of his message is drawn directly from the word of God and entwined with a narrative that weaves the Bible verses together to create a solid understanding of the core message of the Gospel, thereby releasing its power to change ones life as he or she walks according to the truth, with clarity.

I hope for God to use the book to bring people to saving faith in Jesus Christ; and for those already saved, to awaken them to the power of Gospel truth to bring us abundant life through obedience to it, Leininger says. Obedience to the Gospel brings hope, life, selfless love, healed marriages and families, giving hearts and joyful lives, among many other eternal heavenly treasures.
