Known for Moving in the Prophetic, Tracy Cooke Releases a New Book That Makes Spiritual Gifts Approachable for Everyone

“Heavenly Secrets to Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts” by Tracy Cooke

Prophet Tracy Cooke

Cooke Revivals Ministries announces the launch of a new book by Prophet Tracy Cooke entitled “Heavenly Secrets to Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts.”

Despite what we’re facing, I believe God will heal our bodies. What you see in the Bible is still available to us, and through us, today.”

— Tracy Cooke

NEW BERN, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a global environment that finds itself primarily focused on fear, a new book offers very timely help. Authored by Tracy Cooke, a prophet who freely moves in the Gifts of the Spirit by way of an uncommon anointing, “Heavenly Secrets to Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts” makes its way to the fore. Giving readers a road map to embracing a one-on-one relationship with the Spirit of God, the book offers readers a hands-on approach to powerfully change hearts and minds. Cooke is a former pro skateboarder who heard the call of God in 1993. After two brushes with death, he knew his life was meant to reach the nations with a prophetic touch that includes miracles. For Cooke, Christianity isn’t just a religious word. Instead, it’s a supernatural experience that emulates Jesus Christ right down to the healing gifts made manifest in the here and now.

Cooke said, “Our ministry aims to reintroduce Jesus to people in a unique way. The world is filled with busyness and suffering. So, we're getting back to the basics with love and compassion because God is still interested in signs and wonders. Despite what we’re facing, I believe He will heal our bodies. What you see in the Bible is still available to us, and through us, today. That's not just for special people or prophets; the gifts of the Holy Spirit are readily accessible to every single follower of Jesus.”

Cooke’s book, “Heavenly Secrets to Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts," shows readers how to operate in the supernatural gifts found in scripture. The book also includes prayers for healing, the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and the anointing for miracles. In the book, readers will learn how to:

– Increase their relationship with the Holy Spirit and understand His signature characteristics.

– Depend on the Holy Spirit’s leading to flow in His gifts.

– How to position oneself for the Glory of God to manifest through their life.

No stranger to TV, Cooke has appeared multiple times on Sid Roth’s nationally syndicated program, “It’s Supernatural.” Numerous speaking engagements have also surrounded discussions about the presidency of Donald Trump.

In addition to his online school, the Elisha Training Center, Cooke’s ministry offers outreach ministries such as Celebrate Recovery to help alcoholics and drug addicts. Their community food drives also help those most in need. In the process of expansion, the evangelistic arm of the ministry will soon facilitate new outreach ministries.

Cooke adds, “We currently have a television studio in New Bern, NC, where all of our pre-recorded and live ministry takes place. People are more than welcome to stop by for prayer. We’ll agree together for miracles!”

New Highly Anticipated Book Promises to Help People Transform Their Lives, Organizations, or Communities

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ignite Press announced the release of WE the Change: Launching Big Ideas and Creating New Realities, by leadership and coaching expert Shannon Wallis.

The book is available on Amazon at https://amzn.to/3cXWlOS

WE the Change presents a blend of life story meeting life coaching. Inspired by her 500-mile journey on foot along the Camino de Santiago, as well as her own personal path to reinvention, WE the Change offers readers a practical guide to authentically create what they want.

“This book is meant to help women who have the desire to launch a Big Idea or create a New Reality for themselves, their families, and oth¬ers,” says Wallis. “May this book act as that roadmap and guide you to achieve success.”

To celebrate the launch of the book, the Kindle version of the book will be on sale for 99 cents for a limited time.

Anything is possible—it’s a phrase most people write off as a cliché. But not Shannon. Before she was a leadership consultant, before she was the senior exec¬utive at a Fortune 100 company, before she received her MBA from Duke, she was a young woman in a small town, from a humble home, with little hope of ever leaving. But she did leave and achieve, and she believes anything is possible. More importantly, Shannon believes you too can accomplish the remarkable, and she is here to help you make that happen. Bottom line—she is not satisfied with “what ifs” that lead to “only ifs,” and you shouldn’t be either.

As a leadership consultant, Shannon pushes and inspires leaders to model the exemplary leadership that can transform companies, organizations, and communities. It’s a job she loves, and it’s given her the opportunity to work with remarkable people at incredible companies like Amazon, Coca-Cola, FedEx, 186 | WE THE CHANGE
Grameen Foundation, Guidehouse, Microsoft, Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos, Trinity Education Foundation, United Planet, and Zillow.

But before she was helping senior leaders do the impossible, Shannon was one of them. At Microsoft, she became the first person to head up High Poten¬tial Leadership Development on a global level. How? By being the first person to both see the need and act on it. In the role, she led a global team of high-performers and managed a multi-million-dollar budget. She also learned a lot; like, no matter where you work or where you live, exemplary leadership cascades through an organization and makes everyone better.

Shannon is also the proud mother of two teenage daughters. She has been happily married to her husband for twenty-two years and resides in Bellevue, WA, outside of Seattle. When she is not supporting clients and organizations to embrace their highest potential, you can find her traveling the globe, explor¬ing cultures, meeting new friends, and seeking connection, community, and . . . chocolate.

Shannon can be reached at: www.WEtheChange.Solutions

WE the Change is Shannon’s first solo book.

Visit Amazon at https://amzn.to/3cXWlOS to purchase the book and to learn more!

Chalk It Up to Experience

The App I Cot Journey to Plumville

The App I Cot Journey to Plumville: Empowering Kids to Overcome Adversity

Helping the youth understand and overcome adversity

COOKSTOWN, NEW JERSEY, USA, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every child’s life journey during their formative years and beyond are crucial to their growth. This is when they get to have a view of what the real world looks like from their own perspective. And through their experiences, they learn first-hand and little-by-little some of the most important life lessons that would later turn out to be crucial elements of their development. However, there are situations when things get a little rough for the kids. Adversity, bullying, and many other negative life experiences await them. This is not avoidable. We can only hope they can overcome it. This is the central theme of this book The App I Cot Journey to Plumville: Empowering Kids to Overcome Adversity.

The story begins with a newly-created AI application, named “App I Cot,” and its journey to Plumville. App I Cot was designed to maintain itself for better health. And just like any other, normal kid, App I Cot has aspirations to become an engineer someday. This meant that it had to enroll in a school and go through the rigors of formal education. However, it wasn’t meant to be easy for App I Cot. Enrolling in Plumville might spell disaster for the AI app, knowing that it could be potentially bullied just by being different. Beyond these considerations, App I Cot powers through. Overall, the story covers App I Cot’s path towards a fruitful life, overcoming any possible challenge that may come its way.

Dennis W.C. Wong, the author of the book, was born in Honolulu, HI and migrated with his family to San Francisco, CA in 1958. Wong has a BS degree in Business Management-Personnel and Industrial Relations. He started his journey in 2002 when he wrote "My Journey" while attending a nurse assistant class. Mr. Wong wrote "The Apricot Outlook of Katherine Koon Hung Wong". He currently works at Kaiser Permanente in Oakland, CA as a Nurse Assistant in the Operating Room Department and became a Licensed Vocational Nurse doing home health care. Also, as a Sterile Processing Technician, Mr. Wong volunteers with Surgical Missions to Guatemala and Ecuador.

The book is very palatable for the children. Every part of the story is illustrated thoughtfully to convey a message and to give the reader an immersive yet delightful experience. Any child might even find most of the protagonist’s situation relatable. This is a recommended read especially for the young ones who might still be struggling to find their footing in the pace of today’s world.

Generations Deep By Gina Birkemeier, LPC Released For Worldwide Distribution

Book Based Upon Concept That Our Stories Begin Before We Take Our First Breath

Generations Deep helps people recognize how everyone’s story begins long before their first breath. Readers will learn how and why it is vital to learn what their vulnerabilities are. ”

— Gina Birkemeier, LPC

ST. LOUIS, MO, UNITED STATES , March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Generations Deep: Unmasking Inherited Dysfunction and Trauma to Rewrite Our Stories Through Faith and Therapy (ISBN 978-1-17329545-2-6, Out Loud Publishing, 2021) by Gina Birkemeier has been released for worldwide distribution. In this powerfully-written book, Birkemeier shares her own family’s personal story through four generations, showing how destructive behaviors of one generation are repeated by following generations and that unless we take time and effort to repair the past, this dysfunctional cycle will continue. Offering questions and theories to consider, including a questionnaire created with the help of sixty therapists, Generations Deep will guide readers toward their own growth where it’s possible to banish shame and find freedom—for themselves and for future generations. The book has a faith component also, with Birkemeier drawing not only from her career as a licensed therapist but also her ministry work in writing it. The paperback edition retails for $16.95 and the Kindle version is $12.99. The book is ideal for anyone interested in self-help and self-improvement, and ranked No. 1 on Amazon’s New Releases Personal Growth and No. 11 on the Self Help category the day after it was released.

"This book is about connecting dots. About showing how patterns, beliefs, behaviors, ideas, identity and styles of relating are passed down. It’s about creating awareness and understanding. It’s about learning how trauma impacts us at a cellular level- but so does healing,” said Birkemeier.

“ Generations Deep helps people recognize how everyone’s story begins long before their first breath,” continued Birkemeier. “Readers will learn how and why it is vital to learn what their vulnerabilities are so they can minimize the risk of repeating them. Generations Deep allows readers to break the bonds with inherited dysfunction and trauma, and to rewrite a healthy narrative for themselves and those that come after them.”

Faith and therapy played important roles in Birkemeier’s personal healing. Today with nearly two decades of experience in counseling and ministry, she uses this knowledge to guide readers on how to do their own work and heal from inherited behaviors. She shows that cycles can be broken, and readers can shed the chains of inherited behaviors that are destructive. From there, they can live healthier lives and pass that life on to future generations. Reading Generations Deep will leave the reader encouraged and empowered to break unhealthy cycles in their own lives..

About the author

Gina Birkemeier is a nationally-renowned licensed professional counselor, author, and speaker. Gina approaches her field with a specific purpose to help people find the freedom to be who they were created to be. In her practice, Gina draws upon her professional background in counseling and ministry to assist others to break the bonds of previous generations and live enriching and productive lives.

Gina holds a master’s degree in counseling and theology from Covenant Theological Seminary and is a therapist at CrossRoads Counseling.

The latest book in Kihlström's Agile series discusses remote work, automation, and the freelance economy

I’m thrilled to contribute to the conversation about the future of work, and the changing relationship between individuals and employers.”

— Greg Kihlström, Author

ARLINGTON, VA, USA, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We live in an agile world. Incremental growth and continuous improvement have brought about change in just about every field imaginable. The workforce and work as we know it has been changing for a while, and it’s about to undergo a major shift.

With continued globalization, an increase in the use of artificial intelligence to perform both routine and complex tasks, and the rise of outsourcing and contracting in new industries, the Agile Workforce is here.

The Agile Workforce is the new book by Greg Kihlström, customer and employee experience thought leader, entrepreneur, speaker, and author. The book discusses the future of work, and how humans and AI-driven machines will work together to create our future. It also describes the rise of the freelance economy, and how remote work, gig workers, and a global mindset will transform the traditional workplace into a hybrid model where the best of all worlds can be combined for the benefit of individuals and companies alike.

“I’m thrilled to contribute to the conversation about the future of work, and wanted to share my perspective on how the freelance economy, increased automation, and a growing hybrid and distributed workforce is shaping the relationship between individuals and employers,” said Kihlström.

The Agile Workforce is the fourth book in Kihlström’s Agile series, which started with 2016’s The Agile Web, exploring how the agile methodology applied properly website design, can create dramatic improvements in their efforts. 2018’s The Agile Brand explored how brands that embrace consumer feedback and create a “living” brand that evolves over time while staying true to its values. In 2019, Kihlström released The Agile Consumer, which gives practical examples of how agile thinking and approaches, as well as a shift in consumer behavior, are changing the brand-consumer relationship with the opportunity for better outcomes for both.

The Agile Workforce is available in print and as an ebook from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and as an ebook from Apple Books. You can read more on The Agile World website.

BBC Radio interview with David Clarke, Guildhawk Director of Integrity Speaks about Romance Fraud

A Border Terrier called Lucy describes how cruel fraudsters have targeted her with a series of online scams during the pandemic and appeals for action

There is a gap in the global market for the Most Trusted Integrated Online Marketplace, where identities are verified, fraud is stopped and customers ‘feel safe and happy’.”

— David Clarke, Director of Integrity Services, Guildhawk

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fraudsters have always been cruel, but since lockdown, they’ve gone all out to hurt and steal from innocent victims, like poor Lucy, an elderly border terrier. Her sorry saga, recounted in a short video interview, shows how criminals use old tricks to con millions into parting with their cash.

You could dismiss hapless Lucy as comical if she were not such a true-to-life depiction of the cruel victimisation that’s occurring across the world every day. Lucy is not a joke; she’s an illustration of the cruelty that fraudsters dispense, and it’s not new; it’s just increasing.

Last week, City of London Police said that, since 1 March 2020, Action Fraud has received 6,000 reports of pandemic-related scams resulting in £34.5m being stolen from victims in England and Wales. I want this to stop, which is why I’ll explain below what can be done to protect the innocent and why digital transformation in the online world actually presents a brilliant business opportunity.

Victims of online fraud and consumer protection groups are angry that platforms are not doing more to protect their users, and there are calls for greater regulation and penalties. That may happen in time, but there is another, more immediate reason why online platforms need to do more; because if they don’t, they will lose customers.

There is a huge gap in the market for an online platform that is the most trusted service in the world and a huge prize for the company that takes that accolade according to David Clarke, chair of the UK's COVID-19 Fraud Watch and Director of Integrity at Guildhawk.

Clarke has called for online platforms to digitally transform to better protect customers and gain a competitive advantage. He also says the other big opportunity that so many companies overlook is Language. To build trust and loyalty with staff and customers around the world, successful businesses talk trust and safety in every language and cites the approach taken by the BSI.

Renowned Life Coach Kishna J. Offers Free Download: ‘A Letter to Your Trauma: 6 Steps to Overcoming Trauma Mentality’

The newly released eBook provides a guide to empowerment, encouragement and healing.

DREXEL HILL, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, March 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Author, entrepreneur and certified parenting and relationship coach Kishna J. is pleased to announce the release of her new book, A Letter to Your Trauma: 6 Steps to Overcoming Trauma Mentality, available to download completely free of charge.

A mother of two school-aged children with years of experience in teaching and coaching, Kishna was, at one time in her life, the victim of domestic violence and abuse. In her book she shares her story, with the goal of helping others who also find themselves in an abusive relationship.

“I have been abused and I have seen people around me be abused,” says Kishna. “But I have survived, and more importantly, I have healed. It certainly wasn’t easy, but I’m here now to share my experiences and help others. I’m making my book available for free in the hopes that it will reach as many people in need as possible, and help them heal from their trauma.”

Sadly, domestic abuse is more common in our society than most people think. Statistics show that one in four women are victims of domestic abuse, along with one in nine men. Experts are afraid that those numbers may be even higher at present as a result of people being forced to stay home during the pandemic.

Kishna explains that her book is specifically intended to help victims unlearn the defensive behaviors that were created as a result of their trauma. Readers will learn how to identify the trauma they suffered, forgive themselves for being in the situation, and eventually replace their learned defense mechanisms with healthy coping tools.

“Most importantly, after reading my book, you will never fall prey to an abuser again!” adds Kishna.

Download the book here, and for more information about Kishna, visit her website at https://balancinglifeandkids.com.

About the Author

Author, motivational speaker and blogger, Kishna J. also offers parenting, relationship, and life coaching, one-on-one or in group settings. On her blog, Balancing Life & Kids, readers can find a series of down-to-earth, humorous, yet educational posts on subjects ranging from relationships to ‘momming’ it, to surviving quarantine. Kishna also hosts a podcast with interviews and conversations centered around the topics of resiliency and parenting. To find out more, visit balancinglifeandkids.com.

L. Ron Hubbard's Contests have expanded their help for writers or artists by creating a blog, a podcast, and a forum, all hosted on WritersoftheFuture.com.

… the most enduring forum to showcase new talent in the genre.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

HOLLYWOOD, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Writers of the Future, after nearly four decades, has become the one-stop-shop for aspiring writers and artists,” stated Emily Goodwin, Vice President Author Services, Inc., the agency overseeing the Contests and the annual L. Ron Hubbard Presents Writers of the Future anthology, which Publishers Weekly called, “the most enduring forum to showcase new talent in the genre.”

L. Ron Hubbard initiated the Writers of the Future writing contest in 1983 to provide, in his own words, “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for the aspiring artist.

“Following Mr. Hubbard’s original direction that resulted in the annual Writers of the Future anthology,” Goodwin continued, “we have expanded its help for the writer or artist by creating a blog, a podcast, and a writer forum, all hosted on the WritersoftheFuture.com website.”

Writers & Illustrators of the Future Podcast: Amazing life stories and proven tips for both writing and illustrating, listen to Contest judges, winners, and industry pros in these personal interviews on this weekly podcast that is an awarded finalist in the People’s Choice: The Podcast Awards.
Writers of the Future Online Workshop: This free writing workshop, with 13 videos featuring Orson Scott Card, David Farland, Tim Powers, and ten essays by the Contest founder, L. Ron Hubbard, provides valuable tools for a writer of any skill. Designed as an intermediate-level writing course, people of all levels have found this workshop helpful with the story structure, character development, the formulation of story ideas, and the business of writing.
• Writers & Illustrators of the Future Blog: Latest news from writers, illustrators, judges, and industry professionals.
• Writers of the Future Forum: Winning the 2020 Critter’s Award as Best Writing Forum, the Writers of the Future Forum provides a place where members can discuss writing and illustration in a safe, non-judgmental environment, and get help with stories they want to submit to the Writers of the Future Contest.

David Farland, Golden Pen winner for volume 3 and now the Writer Contest Coordinating Judge stated, “I love the fact that this contest is judged blind. When I judge a story, all that I see is the name of the story and the text, nothing more. I don’t know what country the tale comes from, whether the author is eight or eighty. I can’t necessarily guess the ethnicity or anything else. Thatʼs part of the joy of this contest, reading the announcements and learning a bit about who the winners are and where they come from!”

The Illustrator Coordinating Judge Echo Chernik commented, “One of the best aspects of the IOTF (Illustrators of the Future) Contest is that it’s open to everyone. While reviewing the submissions, I have no idea of where the artist is from, their gender, or age ─ they are represented purely by the artwork that they submit. It’s wonderful to meet the winners and see the variety of talent behind the artwork ─ we have winners from all over the world and from high school to retired, which goes to show that it’s never too early or too late in life to pursue your passions!”

International Parenting & Health Institute Provides Globally Accredited Russian Adult & Child Sleep Coach Certification

Careers Driven to Transform Lives & Evolve Humanity

IPHI is first organization to pioneer a holistic team based no sleep training approach to child sleep challenges that also addresses & supports pregnancy sleep

Our children’s bodies do not need to technically be “trained” to sleep. By nature’s design, human bodies are already programmed to sleep and will do so if we understand how to support the process.”

— Mar De Carlo

OJAI, CA, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The International Parenting & Health InstituteTM is pleased to announce it is providing a globally accredited certification program for maternity and child sleep consulting, now also available in Russian.

The study of sleep health, while an emerging field, has managed to elude many – as there is both limited training in the healthcare field and lack of support to help families find the root cause of their sleep challenges. Many programs on the market try to generalize sleep solutions with sleep training methods by collecting data that can often be misleading and does not provide the individualized customized support needed to address this growing concern that is so deeply connected to both managing and maintaining long term health.

Since 2011, the International Parenting & Health Institute™ (IPHI) has been the first organization to pioneer a holistic, no sleep training team-based approach that addresses pregnancy sleep, newborn sleep, child sleep and adult sleep. Rather than choosing a baby-led vs parent-led approach, IPHI supports a team-led approach that addresses and supports everyone’s needs which IPHI feels supports different family cultures best.

“After giving birth, sleep can be a great challenge for the entire household: not just a child issue but also a family issue,” says founder of International Parenting & Health Institute, Mar De Carlo. “When a child is experiencing sleep challenges, the whole family is affected. Often, these families have been sleep-deprived for weeks and sometimes months, which can have negative and traumatic effects even after experiencing a healthy and powerful birth. This is where the Russian IPHI Maternity & Child Sleep Certification Program comes in, which is rooted in the philosophy of the “Holistic Science of Sleep Method,” which I developed.”

With 25 years of experience and training in the health, fitness and coaching, Mar is the first to pioneer a holistic integrative professional training program via IPHI for pregnancy, newborn, child and adult sleep that covers valuable topics not found in average sleep studies. Her program provides graduates the tools to determine the most significant factors that are interfering with the body's natural rhythms and encourages health and lifestyle choices that put the science of sleep into action. Through support and education, awareness for this growing issue is raised and individuals are provided with the tools necessary to help others successfully overcome the most common sleep problems – and to engage them in understanding and learning techniques to improve the overall quality of their sleep.

Through this game-changing program, individuals will:
