Lynda Deniger is president of HIS Publishing Company, a publisher of children’s books. The Abita Springs, La., resident will soon offer ebooks and Christian testimonials.Lynda_@_B&N-1 Deniger is the author of “Salty Seas and His Heroic Friends” and “Patti Pelican and the Gulf Oil Spill.”

Why did you create your business?

“I had written a children’s book manuscript in 1988 but kept telling myself I wasn’t a children’s author. I wouldn’t pursue publication until 2008 when I felt God impress me to self-publish. Once the process started I knew I wanted to perform the book for children. I got a mentor who taught me the art of storytelling and thousands of school children later, I found I really could entertain them and entice them to enjoy books and their stories.

When the Gulf Oil Spill happened, my characters ended up in the middle of it. Patti Pelican and the Gulf Oil Spill gives children a bird’s eye view of the event and how more than 2,000 pelicans were rescued, rehabilitated and released. It’s a realistic redemption story that provides valuable insight into the need for environmental stewardship.”

What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?

“Judges 18:9: ‘Arise… For we have seen the land, and, behold, it is very good. Do not be too lazy to go; enter to possess the land.’ Jeremiah 29:11, ‘For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord; plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.’”

Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?

“Walk in integrity in all you do. Seek God’s guidance for your business decisions and trust Him to direct your path. When you face obstacles, ask God for wisdom to handle it. Just believe that if He called you to step out in faith, He desires to bless you and the work of your hands.”

Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?

“I didn’t do kids. Didn’t have any; didn’t hang around them. Actually, I was afraid of them and didn’t know how to relate. I find it amazing that given my history with children that God would call me to write children’s books and bring them to life through my performances. But then again, I’ve been performing since I was three. God just changed the age of my audience. I find great delight in their awe and wonder about my books, especially when they ask for my autograph. Oh, to be a celebrity for God!”

The First Born Son Inc. helps restore individuals and families

Special to Inside The Pew

Through The Firstborn Son, Inc., Bambolo and his staff delivers motivational talks to elementary, junior and senior high schools, college groups, family advocate groups, Ezechiel "Zeke" Bambolo churches, and corporations. The focus of their presentations is improving family dynamics across all of these demographics by introducing or enhancing the understanding of multi-generational family legacy.

Why did you create your business?

“Our culture is riddled and crippled by the promotion of individualistic pursuits. We have greatly lost the understanding and exhibition of true family unity (love, strength, commitment, purpose, perseverance, etc.) within the confines of traditional family. However, corporations have adopted the traits (family branding) which ought to make families powerful and are successfully piling billions of dollars in their bank accounts. In short, the principles work greatly if applied properly and purposefully to our traditional families.

We deliver speeches, but most importantly seminars which allow individuals and family to acquire strategies, purpose, motivation, and more, as well as implement them. By implementing these principles we are able to securely set a winning multi-generational legacy which is sustainable long after we are dead and gone from this Earth. OurThe Firstborn Son logo dependents are then able to eliminate destructive familial occurrences such as divorce, child abuse, domestic abuse, infidelity, alcoholism, self-centeredness, and many more.

Since studies show employees leave corporations more for personal reasons than for any other (financial, promotions, etc.), companies greatly impact turnover and other negative trends by investing in the personal lives of their employees. Companies will also realize increase revenue generation by improving the personal lives of their staff. A stable home life most frequently generates a long serving and productive employee rather than the contrary.”

What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?

“We seek greatly to serve and restore our fellow man, even in the midst of doubt and failure, much like Jesus Christ restores Peter after the resurrection. As such, the scripture which most empowers us and also reminds us to introspectively look at ourselves is John 21:15-17, The Love Motivation.”

Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?

“Your greatest investment and ultimate road to success (professional, financial, spiritual) rest in the heart and souls of your people (employees or clients). Invest authentically!”

Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?

“My life has been an amazing journey of a pretty healthy familial upbringing, lost it all to a tragic and treacherous African civil war, and received the mandate in my teenage years to restore the family to prominence. All of this has become the motivation for my current book, ‘The Firstborn Son: a Curse, a Gift, or a Calling.’”

Red Letter Paper Company helps customers ‘send a little faith’

SANTA FE, N.M. – What is the name of your business? What type ofStephanie Hinderer business is it?

“My business is called Red Letter Paper Company (aka RLPCo) and I make Christian cards with a modern edge. I settled on the name because Jesus’ words in the Bible are printed in red ink, and these cards are my way of sharing Him.”

Why did you create your business?

“My husband and I struggled every year to find Christmas cards that reflected both our faith and our minimalist and modern visual tastes. If we couldn’t find what we were looking for, surely other people were having the same problem. As a designer, I knew it was a problem I could solve. I wanted to make Christian greeting cards that appeal to a younger generation and that are a bit more subtle so that anyone can send a little faith without being overbearing.”

What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?RLPCo2-small

“The verse I base my business on is 1 Corinthians 10:31: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” As someone who was never very comfortable with sharing the gospel verbally, the cards and the business are my way of using the gifts He’s given me to share Him with others. This verse for me means that whatever I do, even making cards, I can do it for Him. I’ve also adopted Isaiah 6:8 as a verse for my business: “Here am I. Send me.” Perfect for cards, right? J”

Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?

“I’m sure there are some entrepreneurs who believe in themselves and their business 150 percent from the get-go. I’m not one of them. I’m a quiet introvert who has at times struggled with confidence. Wondered if I’d be better off not putting Bible verses on my cards. Felt like I’d never be one of the big dogs. These are the entrepreneurs I’d like to speak to. The wonderful business strategist I’m working with pointed out this verse to me: “And there we saw the giants and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” (Numbers 13:33) If you see yourself as small, the world sees you as small. Make yourself an expert in your business, be confident, see yourself as a giant, be a giant.”

Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?

“If you look closely, you can see flashes of my life in my cards. Each of them is personal to me. My popular {not sent from my iPhone} cards prove I’m a techie. The Twitter Christmas cards and Facebook birthday card show you I’m an avid social networker. The “You’re sweet” card features a glass of sweet tea — yep, I’m an original southerner. Many of my cards reflect my friends and their lives as well. I don’t actually drink coffee, but I can appreciate that love has caffeine. I believe that while the Bible is hundreds of years old, it can still be applied to today’s life and times, and I embrace the challenge of finding a corresponding Bible verse for each of my unique cards.”
