Has any people heard the voice of God speaking from the midst of the fire, as you have heard it, and survived? (Deuteronomy 4:33)
PURPOSED TO IMACT
Like many of us at one point in time in our lives, Jayleen S. Ortiz admittedly found it difficult to believe in herself.
After all, that’s all a part of life, mind you.
Regardless, amongst the crucial things Ortiz had subsequently discovered is that there are people who greatly believe in her — her gifts, her talents, the purpose for which she was created, for the most part.
So much, in fact, that she had become greatly empowered to express her truths as a first-time published author.

“I was encouraged to write my story by a fellow educator who believed I had one to tell,” Ortiz, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that led to her rise as author. “He was a positive motivator at a time, (whereas) I struggled to believe in myself the most.”
Fortunately for Ortiz, God had other life-altering plans — plans to prosper her and not to harm her, plans to give her hope and a future.
So much for that dreaded season during which she found it difficult to believe in herself.

Today, Ortiz has appropriately gone to great lengths to adopt a new lease on life, most notably as one of 13 coauthors to join Passion Purpose Peace: The Pathway Through Trials And Tribulations.
Dr. Theresa Moseley’s highly-anticipated anthology that is currently in the preorder phase and will debut officially on September 21 — which is recognized annually as World Peace Day — Ortiz’s authorship debut comes courtesy of the chapter, “You’re Not Listening.”
“The mass shootings in grocery stores, schools, and inner-city violence are increasing, impacting everyone in the world,” Dr. Moseley told MHN, explaining the purpose for spearheading Passion Purpose Peace: The Pathway Through Trials And Tribulations. “I chose to produce this book to show others that no matter what you are going through in life, the trials and tribulations will lead to lessons learned. You can use those lessons to be a better person, understand your passion, and live in your purpose. You will find success, fulfillment, and inner peace when you live in your purpose. There is no violence. There is serenity. There is no hate. There is love.”
THE JEREMIAH 29:11 AFFECT
A native of Beltsville, Maryland, Ortiz said she doesn’t take lightly the notion that God allowed a divine connection to come to fruition with Dr. Moseley, a Maryland school administrator.
“I began writing my chapter in June after being discovered by Dr. Theresa Moseley,” Ortiz said. “I finished it at the beginning of July and began proofreading and making changes until it was due. I took a little longer because this was my first time writing something so personal.”
Still, Ortiz’s authorship debut has been as good as advertised, a much-anticipated milestone she senses will help enhance and impact generations for years to come.
“The single, most underlying reason I chose to write my chapter was because I wanted to help those who feel unseen, unheard, and misunderstood,” Ortiz told MHN. “I wanted girls, boys, women, men, and everyone in between know I hear you. Sometimes, that is all a person needs. I am a novice author. Although I did write a few books — one published — in the fifth and sixth grade, I always loved writing, but only recently did I start believing I could be an author. I just needed to start writing
“The message I want to send to my audience is that you should always believe in your infinite potential,” Ortiz added. “You can visualize your situational best self, identify your skills, and apply them to make your vision a reality. There nothing you can’t do.”
Since emerging as a first-time published author, Ortiz has fielded a rash of favorable feedback.
YOU’VE GOT THIS
“Overall, my family, friends, and work family have been very supportive and encouraging,” Ortiz said. “They’re all excited to read my chapter and have been telling their friends. I value my support system greatly. I know that my purpose is to enhance helping people through positive and affirmative action. I believe that as long as I bring no harm, I may do what I was meant to do. I will always choose peace, and I strive to be a safe place for others.”
Interestingly enough, Ortiz would be remiss, she acknowledged, if she did not express gratitude to those with whom she’s built a solid working rapport throughout the years for their tireless support of her lofty ambitions.
“Thanks to my last position in the school system, I realized that there was a lack of support in the area of discipline with students,” Ortiz said. “Therefore, I would like to write the manual for in-school suspensions in the county. Then I would share it with the world. This manual would consist of best practices and restorative approaches that overall do not create adverse childhood experiences. I believe children are the most unheard, and we need to listen. I hope to achieve that in my next endeavor.”
As for her notable contributions to Passion Purpose Peace, Ortiz said her primary focus is centered largely on impacting life of at least one person which, in essence, could potentially inspire others to follow suit.
“If there is at least one person that is moved or inspired by my chapter, then I know that I am on the right path,” Ortiz said. “I can be extremely shy, but passion is something I’m always loud and proud about. Once I discovered what would make me happy, I followed that instinct, and it has brought me here. Self-awareness is the skeleton key to inner peace.”
After all, that’s all a part of life, mind you.
