And the LORD answered me, and said, write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)
LEADING BY EXAMPLE
Nearly five decades ago, Dr. Theresa A. Moseley’s brother suffered a tragic death.
All things considered, she admittedly felt solely responsible for how it all unfolded.
The year was 1972 during which Dr. Moseley’s brother died as a result of injuries he sustained in a car accident.
“My brother died right after graduating from high school,” Dr. Moseley, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling arguably the darkest season of her life. “I felt responsible because I dreamed that something bad was going to happen to him the week before he passed, but I did not tell him.”
As Dr. Moseley recalls, such a devastating, life-altering turn of events, by all accounts, were too difficult to stomach.
“This anxiety made me very depressed and I kept all my feelings of grief inside,” Dr. Moseley explains. “One night, as I prayed, I asked God to tell me what to do. In my dream God said, ‘Write.’”
And the rest, as they say, was history. It wasn’t long thereafter that Dr. Moseley began to put her compelling writing mechanics on display.
“The next morning, I wrote a five-page letter to my teacher,” Dr. Moseley, referring to former New York Met and World Series pitcher, Cal Koonce. “After I wrote the letter to him, I kept it. I felt much better because I wrote out my thoughts. I learned that writing was cathartic for me and I wanted to share my thoughts, writing them down was a great way.”
To her distinctly unique credit, Dr. Moseley has made immeasurable strides throughout the years as a gifted writer, particularly as an accomplished author.
GOD’S BELOVED SPOKESPERSON
Having composed four books to date, Dr. Moseley is one of a gallery of co-authors who contributed to Mitchellville, Maryland-based businesswoman Dr. Jennifer Jones Bryant’s Step Into Leadership Greatness: Leadership Isn’t Just A Title.
A highly-anticipated anthology that is scheduled to debut in March 2021 and foreword by Dr. Mary Huntley, Dr. Moseley’s chapter’s eloquently addresses the subject of Transformational Leadership.
“I accepted a role in writing this anthology, because it provides me an opportunity to share my leadership style and how I used these skills to improve a school as a first-year school administrator,” Dr. Moseley, who resides in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, said. “The message that I send in most of my books is that everyone has a divine purpose and it’s important that we know that whatever this is, it will make the world a better place.”
As Dr. Moseley emphasized, one’s quest to discovering his/her divine purpose, in many aspects, begins with exemplifying four key essential attributes.
“Love, hope, faith and peace are all important for everyone to have,” Dr. Moseley said. “It’s everyone’s responsibility to create ambassadors of peace. If everyone loved one another, the world will be a peaceful place to live, grow, and prosper.”
Having commenced to composing her chapter for Step Into Leadership Greatness: Leadership Isn’t Just A Title on January 2 of this year, Dr. Moseley needed exactly one month to complete her contributions to a book that has already created a national buzz roughly two months prior to its official release.
“This book is not published yet. However, the feedback from my previous books has been positive,” said Dr. Moseley, alluding to her other written works: The Fourth Child: Five Decades of Hope (released in 2014), Women Of Virtue Walking In Excellence: Creating Ambassadors of Peace (released in 2019) and Two Decades Apart (released in 2020).
“I write about love, peace, purpose, and wisdom,” Dr. Moseley continued. “I actually tell stories that make people think about the higher order of things and how there are no mistakes in life…just lessons learned. When you turn that negative experience into a positive one by learning a lesson, it is no longer negative.”
“Life is but a short road to our ultimate destiny. Make peace, have compassion, and learn to love before you get there.” — Theresa A. Moseley Ph.D.
For what it’s worth, Dr. Moseley throughout the years has used her brother’s untimely death as a strategic, effective way to seek and consult God for a divine sense of direction.
For her faith-based valiant efforts, God subsequently has worked things out for her good, in large part because, well, she was called according to His purpose.
“I know my gift from God is my voice,” Dr. Moseley said. “When I write, my voice is heard. When I speak, my voice is heard. When I sing, my voice is heard. When this book is published, I will be able to speak to audience on my chapter on Transformational Leadership and guide someone that is undergoing change in an organization, some tools that have worked for me.
“I am excited about working with some outstanding authors, sharing their stories on leadership. Step Into Leadership Greatness will be a great resource for leaders of (various) organizations.”
Also, Dr. Moseley announced the forthcoming launch of the IAmBecoming Podcast with Alonda Brooks, which will debut on February 22. The podcast will be proceeded by a virtual launch party in late February, she said.
