    Marci McPhee Writer, Editor, "The Law of Love" by Steve Young

The charming text and inviting illustrations deliver a wonderful message of connection to the infinite and the divine — and you might even learn a Hawaiian word or two!”

    Tiffany Odekirk, Mother of Four, Author of "Love Unscripted" and "Love on Pointe"
    "Mahalo Does Not Mean Trash, is a heartwarming picture book that will quickly become a treasured favorite of both parents and children. Told with heart and humor, this story reinforces the core Hawaiian values of Aloha and Mahalo. As a mother of four, I'm so grateful to have found a book that is both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend this book!"

    Matthew Corry Editor, Kamehameha Schools Publishing
    "A Hawaiian message with universal appeal. This timeless story shows that gratitude is more than a word. It is a deeply felt expression that unites families, bridges generations, and puts us in the presence of the divine. Mahalo to the Perkins 'ohana—especially Pupu—for teaching us about . . . mahalo!"

    Eric Keawekane, Educator
    "At a time in which cultural awareness has become increasingly important to so many, “Mahalo Does Not Mean Trash” provides timely clarity in a fun and educational way. Readers will find the book to be light enough for youngsters while at the same time offering valuable sentimental and cultural lessons."

    Mary J Insley, Mamaw (Southern for Grandma) To Three Grandchildren
    “Mahalo Doesn’t Mean Trash is beautifully written with love shown on every page. Not only is there the learning experience of Thank You…but also of respect and patience for others. We may not always understand what someone is trying to say until we sit and actually listen.”

  • Author's Name: Jennifer J. Coldwater
  • Your Email Address: jen@jenniferjcoldwater.com
  • About the Author: Raised in a United Methodist household, Jennifer J. Coldwater was asking questions about God and religion as early as first grade when she received a red-letter Bible from a pastor. Jen was fascinated by (confused by, worried about, asking her parents why) the words of Jesus were written in red ink.
    As she grew older, that search for knowledge led Jen to wonder about translation: how and why are there so many different versions of the Christian Bible? In her early 20s, Jen bought a Jewish Publication Society Tanakh because she was obsessed with how much research went into that translation of Hebrew and Aramaic into English.
    Because it was the closest thing she could find to a career in questioning, Jen started teaching English, journalism, and creative writing at a public high school in San Diego, California in the late ‘90s. She continued to read about Judaism (Yitzchok Kirchner’s "The Art of Jewish Prayer", "To Life: A Celebration of Jewish Being and Thinking" by Harold S. Kushner, a revisiting of the Chaim Potok novels I read in college) while she developed her career and taught her students.
    One sad summer in the early aughts, Jen lost her father to pancreatic cancer, divorced her husband, moved to Los Angeles, and started a new teaching job at a large private high school. One of Jen’s first acts as an Angeleno was to reach out to the American Jewish University in search of a conversion course. In the absence of her beloved father, and seeking comfort after all that loss and change, Jen felt it was time to follow her heart to Judaism.
    As she was wrapping up her conversion coursework and fulfilling the personal commitment requirements of the process, Jen was granted a teacher-exchange trip to Israel with her dear friend and rabbi. Jen asked her rabbi if she thought Jen should “finish converting quickly before our trip”—the rabbi was wise enough to laugh at her and advise she not rush into anything. Jen traveled to Israel full of questions, and at Yad Vashem, The World Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, she found so many answers.
    Yad Vashem is designed to change lives. No one can witness the atrocities suffered by six million Jews and not be moved. As a teen, Jen toured Dachau on a class trip. She taught "Night" by Elie Wiesel to her English classes. She took a teacher seminar at Holocaust Museum LA. Jen thought she was prepared to visit The World Holocaust Remembrance Center. She was not.
    Among the many things Jen learned at Yad Vashem was the term “righteous gentile”. As the tour guide told stories of the Righteous Among the Nations, Jen listened intently with tears streaming down her face. While she obviously is not Righteous, Jen lives her life as an ally and an advocate for the Jewish people.
    A small sliver of that allyship and advocacy is embodied in this collection of contemporary romance novels. To learn more about Jen, visit jenniferjcoldwater.com.

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Ready to change your life? The solutions to many modern problems can be found in ancient healings
    The missing key to modern problems of mental illness, physical disease, substance abuse, and relationship issues. Described in the new book Ancient Healings, Modern Miracles.

    We continue to look to modern medicine and technology to solve so many of society’s problems. No doubt these advances have brought about positive changes. Yet we’re still plagued by epidemics of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship hardships and more. Something critical is missing. We’ve lost our healing connections to soul and spirit. The book Ancient Healings, Modern Miracles by Dawn Ressel contains stories of real people who have overcome some of life’s biggest challenges through ancient spiritual modalities.

    There’s more to a human being than just a physical body. Modern science has developed wonderful methods to enhance our physical and emotional life. Nevertheless, people still feel empty, like something is deeply missing. Even people who look from the outside as if they “have it all” are deeply suffering on the inside. Many people have lost their connection to the spiritual realms, which was prominent in the ancient wisdom and traditions of the past.

    Fortunately, the answers to many modern problems have been safeguarded throughout several millennia until such a time as now, when many people would be ready and seeking. Ancient Healing, Modern Miracles holds the missing keys. This book describes the results from ancient spiritual methods that have been preserved for many millennia and are perfectly suited for the 21st century. They have helped thousands of people heal from conditions such as anxiety, depression, substance abuse, and physical ailments. They have also helped people change careers, overcome relationship issues, and lead more fulfilling lives.

    Dawn Ressel is a certified Guide, Healer, Teacher, and Life Activation practitioner with the Modern Mystery School and the Owner of The Light Within. She holds a Master’s Degree in Digital Media from Georgia Institute of Technology and a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Florida State University. Dawn teaches metaphysical classes, meditation, and offers private healing sessions in San Diego, California. The compelling story of her victory over generalized anxiety disorder is detailed in Ancient Healings, Modern Miracles, along with dozens of other miraculous stories.

    The tools of healing and empowerment described in Ancient Healings, Modern Miracles are available by working with the author, Dawn Ressel, and other certified practitioners with The Modern Mystery School. There are currently certified practitioners in 24 countries in the western world.

Jamal capitalized on his athletic ability, earning a football scholarship to the United States Air Force Academy. There he received his bachelor's degree in management from the Air Force Academy in 2015. Upon graduation, Jamal served five years in the Air Force as an acquisitions officer before being medically retired. He then began his next career as a defense contractor supporting the Space Force, where he currently works as an acquisition analyst.
    Jamal never envisioned becoming an author. The endeavor manifested as result of his life’s unprecedented outcomes. After graduating from the Academy, Jamal desired to share his collegiate experience with the world because of its uniqueness. This desire led Jamal to begin composing his work. Originally designed to be a memoir, Jamal's book evolved into an autobiography as necessary background information expanded to include the rest of his life.
    Jamal is a prodigious family man. After God, he cherishes his loved ones before everything else. He is currently married to his beautiful wife, Shaianne, with a 1-year-old son (Malachi) and a 9-year-old stepson (Derek). Jamal enjoys traveling with his family and cherishes a good steakhouse.

    Outside of his family and hobbies, Jamal provides football training to young athletes, owns a Christian clothing business, and is a real estate investor. He plans on taking his real estate sales exam soon to become a salesperson which will aid his real estate investing goal. Moreover, he is striving to build capital to acquire more rental properties and increase his portfolio. Lastly, he is aiming to become financially stable enough to embark on his high school football coaching career. Jamal and his family currently reside in the Golden State as they await the construction of their new home in Arizona.
