Author Peta Gayle Oates drew inspiration from her desire to find and fulfill her God-given purpose. This leads her to write devotionals and send them to people on her mailing list. In Every Woman Devotional (published by AuthorHouse), she aspires to help women become women of purpose.

In this book, women will be taken on a journey of three phases that will boost their confidence, their spirituality, and their relationship with God, with themselves and with others, empowering them to excel in all areas. Each phase will have 25 Devotional that consists of a scripture from the Holy Bible, a song and a short prayer. Each page will have a “power pebble.” Designed to empower, motivate, and transform, this book guides readers to fulfill their God given purpose and potential. It will also inspire them to seek God and get to know him at a deeper, spiritual level.

Each day we hear of persons being unfulfilled, Oates says. The book is designed to promote happiness and success through personal empowerment. What better empowerment than that of oneself. It is a guide to oneness with God and opens the way to peace.

With its instructive and easy-to-read devotionals, this book provides readers with positive and uplifting messages, real-life examples and experiences and inspiring quotes and anecdotes that will assist them in setting their mind at ease.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 28, 2015

Ziegler, a specialty investment bank, is pleased to announce the successful closing of the $ 7,975,000 Series 2014 Bond issue for Grace Christian Church, Sterling Heights, Michigan, a new client to Ziegler.

Grace Christian Church began in 1980 with a group of 20 people. The congregation gathered in rented facilities until 1986, when the church purchased a 24,000 square-foot elementary school in Warren, Michigan. In 1992, a 108,000 square foot campus on 18 acres of land became available, and the church entered into a lease for the property. When the lease was up in 1995, the church purchased the facility, and the congregation grew in that location to over 800. In 2006, the Church sold its then existing facility and purchased its current 111,034 square-foot worship facility in Sterling Heights. After completing renovations to the building, the grand opening of the new facility was held in 2007. Today, the church has an average weekly worship attendance of 3,000.

In 2007, the church executed a promissory bank note to fund the acquisition and renovation of its current worship facility. In 2013, the church executed an additional bank note and three small individual notes to refinance then existing debt. The bank notes had maturity dates of January 2016, and the church elected to refinance the notes now in order to secure a long-term, fixed interest rate. Proceeds of the 2014 Bonds were used to redeem the bank notes and the individual notes, which lowered the churchs annual debt service by an amount that will save the church approximately $ 123,800 per year.

With a challenging economic environment in Michigan the last several years, and while spending significant time working through applications for a permanent loan structure, Ziegler became a perfect fit for our refinance needs. Our appraisal situation in the metropolitan Detroit area has been volatile for years and it made the process of re-financing our building every three to five years a challenge. The fixed-rate, the long-term amortization, and the fact that we never have to do this again, made the best business sense to our organization. The team at Ziegler walked us through a very aggressive timeline and everything worked out beautifully. As leaders, we have better things to do with our time, so I would highly recommend this strategy for an organization looking for long-term solutions, commented Jerry Weinzierl, Lead Pastor of Grace Christian Church.

For several years, Grace Christian Church had been searching for a permanent solution to their short-term bank loans. The challenging Michigan economy was just one of several hurdles. When we presented Zieglers plan of a long-term fixed-rate bond issue and showed them the significant annual savings that would be realized, the church leadership team was very pleased and moved forward with the process. We completed the financing on a very expedited timeline and it was a pleasure to work with their leadership group, stated Dave Schlosser, managing director in Zieglers religion & education practice.

Since our first financing in 1913, Ziegler has become a recognized leader in providing creative, tailored solutions to religious and educational institutions. Focusing on multidenominational places of worship, charter schools and K-12 private schools, Ziegler offers long-term, fixed-rate financing, tax-exempt financing and short-term, variable rate financing.

DALLAS (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

Have you ever felt inferior and overwhelmed by an authoritative figure, either in your school, work atmosphere or even church? Author Rebecca Kaddi writes a new book about a local pastor who betrayed her and many within her community, creating chaos within the family dynamics.

Kaddi had an affair with a local pastor, however she believes God delivered her and restored her relationship with her husband, and now she wants to warn others of the characteristics of deceitful pastors.

Untold Story; Beware of Fake Pastors: My Encounter with The Pastor, was written to create awareness on the techniques this pastor used to deceive church-goers and to inform how anyone can be deceived or destroyed by authoritative figures who take advantage of those within a community. Kaddi is also creating awareness of how the devil can play a part in broken relationships and marriages happening in our society today, by exposing how deception can come even from the least expected areas and people in our lives.

Kaddi now encourages other women facing similar situations to free themselves from their perpetrators and inspires husbands to understand and help their wives refocus their attention to the family responsibilities, as planned by God.

I want this book to encourage believers and open the eyes of unbelievers concerning God’s plans and to understand how the devil recruits people into his kingdom through those closest to them, said Kaddi.

Kaddi wrote this book to also encourage friends and families of lost and loved ones to never stop praying for them, in hopes to encourage and strengthen other relationships and marriages.

By the grace of God, my marriage was restored but many marriages have been destroyed by this same man using the same strategies, said Kaddi. I wrote this book to help restore marriages, build relationships and bring people to God.
