Baltimore’s Nodella S. Jordan’s entrepreneurial repertoire now features an online clothing/accessories brand


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


SAVED & SASSY 

BEING USED BY GOD — An accomplished author and the founder and CEO of NSJ Ministries, Nodella S. Jordan has gone to great lengths to add yet another notable endeavor to her business-related repertoire as the mastermind behind Sassy & Swag Collections, her Baltimore-based online clothing and accessories brand.

For Nodella S. Jordan, a massive portion of her quest to fulfill her destiny stems all the way back during her middle schools days.

Never mind that she was faced with a seemingly insurmountable hurdle about which she had to clear.
“Becoming a teen mom in middle school was the only reason I needed to develop the drive I have today for success,” Jordan, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the memorable developments that have contributed greatly to fervent desire to become an entrepreneur. “It was and still is my greatest desire to be an example to my daughter, to always be in pursuit of success not for others, but for yourself.”

To her credit, Jordan’s life-changing example as a devoted mother and a devout woman of faith is steadily being embraced and commended in ways unimaginable.

An accomplished author and the founder and CEO of NSJ Ministries, Jordan has gone to great lengths to add yet another notable endeavor to her business-related repertoire as the mastermind behind Sassy & Swag Collections, her Baltimore-based online clothing and accessories brand.

A venture that went into full operations in August 2019, Jordan’s Sassy & Swag Collections is centered largely on offering consumers a wide selection of T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, hats, ball caps, tote bags, notebooks, mugs, and much more. In addition, Sassy & Swag Collections offer custom-designed products for its customers and they also have the option of mixing or matching any product in its online store.

That’s not all, Jordan acknowledged.

“We are proud to announce our special collection ‘His and Her’ (paraphernalia) to celebrate relationships,” Jordan said. “Due to the demand for a children’s line, I will be adding clothing and accessories for children soon.”

Interestingly, while Jordan has been blessed mightily to establish yet another credible endeavor, it seems her latest achievement essentially is a rising movement, of sorts, and not just an ordinary clothing line.

“As I continue to accomplish various goals, others have recognized this drive and I’ve been asked to mentor those aspiring to better their lives,” Jordan said. “It’s not about the money only, but creating stability and independence that extends into our communities.”

A newly-erected venture that caters to people of all ages, amongst Jordan’s strategic ambitions is to see Sassy & Swag Collections ultimately garner a national — or perhaps — global presence.

After all, with God, all things are possible.

“Because my clothing line is an online store, I have not traveled yet,” Jordan said. “However, it is something that’s in the making.”

For what it’s worth, Jordan — through her latest endeavor — emphasized that she’s fully committed to aiding others, particularly as it relates to helping them achieve entrepreneurial success.

“(I want) to be an example to those who aspire to become an entrepreneur or businessman or woman,” Jordan said. “I can help them avoid the mistakes I made through my failures, but also provide them with insight on my successes. There are far too many people not fulfilling their potential because of current situations.”

Today, unlike never before, Jordan senses it is her civic duty to not just give back but, most importantly, to have a kingdom impact in the process.

“Because my parents inspired me as a child as well as a few of my schoolteachers, and there was a consistent pushing and still is,” said Jordan, when asked why is it imperative that she esteem others daily. “Inspiration doesn’t stop when you achieve a certain success, but it continues when you’re surrounded by the right people.”

Jordan said prospective customers can also find Sassy & Swag Collections by simply implementing a Google search.

Also, the paperback or eBook versions of her two books — “The Intimate Place: My God, My Man, Myself” and “Sassy: The Perfect Life” — can be purchased online via email at nsjministries@gmail.com, or at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Walmart, or eBay.

“My desire is to leave a footprint behind for others to be inspired and that God is well-pleased with my life,” Jordan said. “This has been a journey with ups and downs, but I don’t think I would change anything, because I believe it all has helped to make and shape me to be who I am today and who I will become.”

Los Angeles’ own La Toyia Hampton generating favorable reviews through her newly-produced book


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

GOD’S PLAN — For La Toyia Hampton, a native of Los Angeles who resides in Lancaster, California, her ideal way of escape through that about which she had endured came wrapped up in an awe-inspiring book. Also known as an accomplished transformational coach, speaker, and empowerment mentor, Hampton is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Now I Know: The Hidden Victim (If You Can’t Protect Yourself, You Can’t Protect Your Children).”

La Toyia Hampton doesn’t look like what she’s been through.

Need more proof?
Consider, for instance, the turmoil and seemingly insurmountable obstacles she had to face, particularly during a time where it seemed there was no conceivable way of escape.
“In 1998, when my own children were removed from me,” Hampton, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the tumultuous events that gave way to having delved off into the authorship industry. “I realized that I was repeating a cycle set for me by my grandparents. I needed others to know that there is another way.”

All things considered, Hampton sensed that because she’s shared her assortment of life-changing experiences in her newly-produced book, strongholds have been broken in her life.

Also known as an accomplished transformational coach, speaker, and empowerment mentor, Hampton is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Now I Know: The Hidden Victim (If You Can’t Protect Yourself, You Can’t Protect Your Children).”

An inspiring and empowering written work that is comprised of 90 pages Hampton’s “Now I Know: The Hidden Victim (If You Can’t Protect Yourself, You Can’t Protect Your Children)” made its ceremonious debut on the market on July 30, 2019.

In a book that has already garnered an assortment of rave reviews, Hampton deemed it essential to remind the masses that your children are affected by the trauma you experience in your life, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

An inspiring and empowering written work that is comprised of 90 pages Hampton’s “Now I Know: The Hidden Victim (If You Can’t Protect Yourself, You Can’t Protect Your Children)” made its ceremonious debut on the market on July 30, 2019.

“Even if they have not witnessed a single incident, children are connected to their mother through their very being,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Hampton’s ‘Now I Know: The Hidden Victim (If You Can’t Protect Yourself, You Can’t Protect Your Children).’ “At one point, each child was connected by every breath, every emotion, and every heartbeat to the only life source they know — mother. When mothers are experiencing pain of any sort, their children are hurting as well. Children spend time hurting, not understanding why.”

To her credit, Hampton has gone to great lengths to share a great deal of transparency in a book that figures to have an influential impact for years to come.


“I want every victim of domestic violence to know that as a mother that is the victim, the likelihood is that your child is being abused in some form,” said Hampton, explaining the divine message she aspires to get across to her reading audience. “We often think because our kids are not being physically hit or not seeing us as mothers being abuse that they are not affected by the abuse.”


As Hampton explained, she vividly recalls like yesterday her downtrodden season in the wilderness.

“I was sexually assaulted in bed with my intoxicated mother lying next to me,” Hampton said. “I chose to write this book, because I felt that I was the only one that I have experienced so much trauma as a person. I had such a horrific childhood. I (sensed) I was the only person until it was brought to my attention that other women have these experiences.”

In a book that has already garnered an assortment of rave reviews, Hampton deemed it essential to remind the masses that your children are affected by the trauma you experience in your life, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

All things considered, Hampton sensed that because she’s shared her assortment of life-changing experiences in her newly-produced book, strongholds have been broken in her life.

Now she’s destined to inspire others to follow suit — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“Because of (my experiences), I decided to go back and make sure that every person that can hear my voice understands that they, too, can move out of trauma and become a healthy whole woman again, living beyond the past trauma and past experiences.”

Without question, she would know, in large part because this beloved author and devout woman of faith surely don’t look like what she’s been through.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

“In 1998, when my own children were removed from me,” Hampton, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the tumultuous events that gave way to having delved off into the authorship industry. “I realized that I was repeating a cycle set for me by my grandparents.

Arizona businesswoman Celest Taylor carrying on her son’s memory through her empowerment endeavor


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


BLESSED BEYOND MEASURES

THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING — Because she stayed true to herself, because she stayed with God, the Giver of life, what she had ultimately discovered was that God strategically positioned her so that He could, in turn, blow her mind. And so it came to pass, the startup of Celest Taylor’s progressive, flourishing business venture that is Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings LLC, her Phoenix, Arizona-based venture that is centered largely on having a global impact, most notably through the ever-so-competitive empowerment industry.

For Celest Taylor, it was, by all accounts, a life-changing development she describes as “tragedy to triumph.”

Still, because she stayed true to herself, because she stayed with God, the Giver of life, what she had ultimately discovered was that God strategically positioned her so that He could, in turn, blow her mind.
And so it came to pass, the startup of Taylor’s progressive, flourishing business venture that is Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings LLC, her Phoenix, Arizona-based venture that is centered largely on having a global impact, most notably through the ever-so-competitive empowerment industry.
Armed with more than 2 ½ decades of retail experience and 16 years in customer service, Taylor’s Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings LLC has become a fixture for wedding and event planning.
In addition, this devout woman of faith customarily serves as a motivational speaker through her notable endeavor, all the while overseeing the day-to-day operations of her online boutique.

MORE ON CELEST TAYLOR’S VENTURE: http://www.blessedandbeautifulbeginnings.com/

For Taylor, a native of Philadelphia, her rise to achieving entrepreneurship success didn’t come easy.

Rather, it came full circle amid arguably the most downtrodden season of her young life.

Also the founder and CEO of Sisters Blessing Sisters & Blessed Kings United LLC, Taylor established her featured venture after the death of her oldest son, Edward Taylor, whose life was tragically cut short on July 17, 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina.

Left to recall his awe-inspiring memory and carry out his legacy, Taylor, at some point in time, sensed she had no choice but to become totally dependent and reliant of God for some much-needed sense of direction.

She’d be the first to admit she’s glad she did.


REMEMBERING EDWARD

“I made a promise (to God) that each year, we’d honor Him by honoring others (through) giving,” said Taylor, whose empowerment venture accommodates individuals ranging in ages 25-to-75 years of age. “We have something for everyone.”

To her credit, Taylor’s venture has greatly afforded her the golden opportunity to impact and inspire the masses in such places as Boston, New York City, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Phoenix, as well as in Beverly Hills, California, where she will host a women’s event in the foreseeable future.

Also the founder and CEO of Sisters Blessing Sisters & Blessed Kings United LLC, Taylor established her featured venture after the death of her oldest son, Edward Taylor, whose life was tragically cut short on July 17, 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina.

“We’re also rebuilding and starting over worldwide through Google and Instagram,” Taylor said. “(We want) to give back and make a difference and build our outreach and motivational (speaking) events and venues.”

Much to her delight, Taylor has been afforded the golden opportunity to expand her immeasurable empowerment gifts, considered she recently hosted what is known as “Our Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings Sisters Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon,” as well as “Our Sisters Blessing Sisters Domestic Violence Awareness Prayer Dinner.”

In addition, this devout woman of faith customarily serves as motivational speaker through her endeavor, all the while overseeing the day-to-day operations of her online boutique.

October is recognized annually as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a campaign to increase awareness of the disease. October also is recognized annually as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Also, in December, Taylor will be host what is known as “Women United Worlwide A Celebration of Women.”


“And I love it,” Taylor said of her assortment of public appearances and speaking engagements. “That’s my goal each day (to esteem others daily) and leave out the door, knowing I’m making a difference and changing a life with love, kindness, compassion, wisdom, and no nonsense.”


All things considered, Taylor doesn’t shy away from the notion that the immeasurable strides she’s making throughout the kingdom is what her late son would have wanted.

Taylor earned an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Health Care Studies from Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. She’s currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree from Strayer University.

Much to her delight, Taylor has been afforded the golden opportunity to expand her immeasurable empowerment gifts, considered she recently hosted what is known as “Our Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings Sisters Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon,” as well as “Our Sisters Blessing Sisters Domestic Violence Awareness Prayer Dinner.”

New Jersey prep football standout Kavon Chambers clinging to high hopes of acquiring a scholarship

HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

LEADER OF THE PACK — To his credit, Kavon Chambers has held his own as one of Saint John Vianney’s marquee players. A 5-foot-11, 205-pound speedy running back, Chambers has turned in valiant contributions for a Lancers, a Holmdel, New Jersey-based private institution that opens postseason play November 15 at Donovan Catholic, according to Maxpreps.com.

Kavon Chambers entered the 2019 campaign for Saint John Vianney High, assuming the businesslike approach.

That’s because Chambers is a senior, meaning as far as he’s concerned, he had to strategically devise ways to — you know — get the most out of his final year as a prep football player.
“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

COLLEGE PARTY — While Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could become a reality. According to Chambers, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Through eight games to date, he’s amassed 653 yards on 84 carries, according to stats obtained through Maxpreps.com.

His biggest game occurred in 33-0 win over visiting Freehold Boro on October 11 during which he manufactured 209 rushing yards on 12 carries and three scores for a Saint John Vianney squad that won two of its last four outings en route to advancing to the playoffs.

Through eight regular season games, Chambers averaged 93.3 yards per outing and 7.8 yards per carry.

In a year he’s dubs a crucial one, considering he’s lobbying to play at the collegiate level, Chambers has gone to great lengths to turn the heads of scouts and recruiters.

Interestingly, while he admittedly could have done more to boost his recruiting stock during the course of his prep tenure, Chambers doesn’t shy away from the notion that he undoubtedly has what it takes to play at the next level.

“I just need a chance to make it happen,” said Chambers, when asked what he’d like for college scouts to know about him. “Whatever college offers me a scholarship will be getting a motivated and determined student athlete that works each and every day to be great.”

Chambers’ father, Marcus Chamber, is amongst those who has witnessed his son’s progress on the field in recent years.

Like so many others who say Kavon possesses the mechanics to play collegiate ball, Marcus is hopeful his son earns a fair chance.


“(Coaches and scouts) say that he’s a good, all-around person and athlete on and off the field and that he is a Division 1 player with a bright future ahead of him,” said Marcus Chambers, assessing his son’s overall body of work. “I was astounded, but knew since the day one he was born he had greatness in him. The sky is the limit for my son, because he can do all things thru Christ that strengthens him.”


While Kavon Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could very well become a reality.

According to Kavon, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

Not bad for a solid student athlete whom, as he prepares for postseason play in mid-November, realizes he’s still afforded the golden opportunity to make a favorable impression, particularly with regards to fulfilling his ultimate goal.


PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING

“(I’m) giving each and every play my all and trying to get to 1-0 every week with my team,” Chambers told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

As Kavon emphasized, though, he’s taking it one game at a time — postseason included.

“(I’m) giving (it my) all each and every day and not letting any days go by without working hard,” Kavon said. “I’ve got three younger brothers who look up to me, and everything I do is for them and my family.”

All of which practically sums up why this gifted student athlete is committed to assuming the businesslike approach.

Every single chance he gets.

Dallas’ Shatal Ransom destined to conquer breast cancer six years after her mother’s diagnosis


Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all. (Psalm 34:19 KJV)


DESTINY STEPS

GOD’S PLAN — Saddled by a dreaded disease with which her mother was diagnosed in April 2013, Dallas’ Shatal Ransom sensed that along with the fervent support from family and friends, she had her faith to rely on more than anything. Ransom learned of her breast cancer diagnosis last month.

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — Shatal Ransom could be appropriately described as a hardworking woman, one who customarily goes the extra mile to give her employer an honest day’s work.

Such was the case sometime in mid-September when Random showed up to work, anticipating yet another productive, pleasant day at the J-O-B.
Then just like that, adversity would ultimately surface in the life of a woman whom, as she tells it, found such an unlikely affliction difficult to stomach.
“I was at work when I received the news,” Ransom told Making Headline News this week. “I was in total shock. I broke down.”
That to which Ransom is alluding is her recent breast cancer diagnosis, a rather demoralizing, tear-jerking development that subsequently gave way to her suffering a brief meltdown, of sorts, particularly when she tried time and again to make sense of it all.

DID YOU KNOW? https://www.cancer.net/cancer-types/breast-cancer/statistics

“Reality set in a couple days later after I found out I was also pregnant,” said Ransom, 40, a native of Dallas. “Yes, I cried, but not for long.”

Saddled by a dreaded disease with which her mother was diagnosed in April 2013, Ransom sensed that along with the fervent support from family and friends, she has her faith to rely on more than anything.

In essence, she pleaded with God unlike never before, never giving any thought to leaning unto her own understanding.

As Ransom acknowledged, her primary concern is more about not the staggering statistics surrounding breast cancer, but more so about how she’s destined to go about outlasting a disease that reportedly has disrupted the lives of more than three million women in the U. S.

“That’s when I gave it to God and said to myself, ‘I have no time for crying,’” Ransom recalled. “I have to be strong, because I have a baby on the way and I started to believe that I will beat this and that I am already cured.”

According to a July 2019 report by the Cancer.net Editorial Board, more women are diagnosed with breast cancer than any other cancer besides skin cancer.

This year, in fact, an estimated 268,600 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive breast cancer, and 62,930 women will be diagnosed with in situ breast cancer.

According to a July 2019 report by the Cancer.net Editorial Board, more women are diagnosed with breast cancer than any other cancer besides skin cancer.

Also, an estimated 2,670 men in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer, the report cites, and it is estimated that 42,260 deaths — 41,760 women and 500 men — from breast cancer will occur this year.

October is recognized annually as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a campaign to increase awareness of the disease.

As Ransom acknowledged, her primary concern is more about not the staggering statistics surrounding breast cancer, but more so about how she’s destined to go about outlasting a disease that reportedly has disrupted the lives of more than three million women in the U. S.


“My support system is awesome,” Ransom said. “My work family — the few I consider family — has been here for me non-stop, encouraging me, praying with me and for me. My family has also been here for me, especially my mother, who has been my rock during the whole process.”


Just like her mother has exemplified unyielding support in the wake of her daughter’s recent diagnosis, Ransom vividly recalls the times she had to fortify a sense of resiliency for her mother, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.

“I was there for her during the whole recovery process,” Ransom explained. “It damn near killed me to watch her go through it, but she is a warrior and a survivor. Chemo almost killed her literally. It gave her an infection in her blood. I was told by the doctors I got her to the hospital just in time.”


AFTER YOU’VE SUFFERED AWHILE…

All things considered, Ransom said the poise and tranquility her mother displayed during her fight with breast cancer have provided her with a newfound disposition on life, especially since she’s now enduring a similar battle.

“She bounced back and is stronger than ever,” Ransom said. “She will forever be my shero. She also stayed on me to get my first mammogram and that’s how I found out. Just getting a routine mammogram and because of that, it was caught in the early stages.”

That she learned of her diagnosis in the infancy stages, Ransom is confident she will make a full recovery.

Just like her mother has exemplified unyielding support in the wake of her daughter’s recent diagnosis, Ransom vividly recalls the times she had to fortify a sense of resiliency for her mother, who was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer.

“Because of my unborn child, all of my doctors are working together to come up with the best plan for me and the baby due to the fact that I have had two miscarriages this year,” Ransom, a graduate of Dallas’ Lincoln High, said. “I have stressed to them how important having this baby is to me, so my only option is a lumpectomy at this time.”

A surgical removal of a discrete portion or lump of breast tissue, usually in the treatment of a malignant tumor or breast cancer, Ransom’s lumpectomy procedure is scheduled for some time in December, or in her second trimester, she said.

“I’m looking forward to having it done,” Ransom said. “After the baby is born, they will do another MRI and run more tests just to make sure that everything is okay.”

Carolina entrepreneur Gail Eaves passes Homecoming Pound Cakes reigns to her daughter, Paige Price


A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children….(Proverbs 13:22 NIV)


SWEET PRICE TO PAY

MOM KNOWS BEST — While North Carolina entrepreneur Gail Eaves undoubtedly is the face of her progressive and thriving baking venture, the time has come that she pass the reigns over to her youngest daughter, Paige Price.

Gail Eaves is the beloved mastermind behind the startup of Homecoming Pound Cakes, her home-based bakery whose longstanding mission, according to this accomplished businesswoman is:

“Each Homecoming Pound Cake that I bake for you is the best pound cake that I have ever baked,” Eaves emphasized.
While Eaves undoubtedly is the face of her progressive and thriving baking venture, the time has come that she pass the reigns over to her youngest daughter, Paige Price.
Price has been working fervently behind the scenes for the past two years and, as her mother tells it, she has been nothing short of amazing.
That’s because Price is responsible for having come up with all of the flavored pound cakes, even when Eaves admittedly wanted to keep things plain and simple.

MORE ON HOMECOMING POUND CAKES: https://www.facebook.com/thepoundcakedoctorphd/

“So while integrating Paige’s concepts, we have branched out beyond plain and simple,” Eaves told Making Headline News this week.

As Eaves acknowledged, her daughter has undergone what she appropriately deems Homecoming Pound Cakes’ 12-month Intensive Training Programs during which she had become thoroughly acclimated on how to become well-rounded with her craft and, most importantly, how to strategically set herself apart from others in a similar line of work.

Interestingly, the sustained success of Homecoming Pound Cakes has even given way to this venture emerging a regular for participating in various events and festivals during which Eaves and Price go to great lengths to provide what they describe as “elaborate and elegant to simple dessert bars.”

“(She had been baking) for the past two years,” Eaves said of Price. “I’m excited and pleased to say that she now has full control of the business.”

By and large, positioning her daughter to ultimately assume the CEO role of the family’s baking business had been in the works for some time, Eaves said. That way, she could shift her focus more on overseeing the day-to-day operations of professional counseling endeavor.


After a morning of hanging out in the kitchen with my mother, watching her create a masterpiece while my father was in the vegetable garden, I became interested in the whole foundation of the pound cake process. Going forward, I started baking a pound cake every Friday night during my adolescent years, using my mother’s recipe. — Homecoming Pound Cakes CEO Gail Eaves


A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Eaves, 62, is a credible licensed professional counselor for Brookdell & Beck Counseling Services, her Eden, North Carolina-based practice that is widely known for offering therapy services for adults, children, and elders, particularly in Eden and surrounding areas.

Since its inception, Homecoming Pound Cakes has become a fixture amongst locals, in large part because of its wide range of delectable favors, most notably the famous strawberry crunch, orange creamsicle, red velvet, banana pudding, salted caramel, pumpkin spice, orange, Italian cream, plain — the list goes on and on.

“This has always been my goal…to move forward with this business, to leave my children and grandchildren a legacy,” Eaves said. “Now I can focus entirely on my other career.”

What’s even more intriguing is that Homecoming Pound Cakes is starting to attract customers outside of the state for which it was established.

For Eaves and Price, nothing is more satisfying than witnessing the smiles on the faces of her their customers, many of whom simply can’t resist following up with them to place orders for their next dessert.

“What I like most about baking pound cakes professionally is adding joy to other people’s meals by providing them with that back in the day or grandmother’s pound cake that is rare to come across nowadays,” Eaves said.

As Eaves acknowledged, her daughter has undergone what she appropriately deems Homecoming Pound Cakes’ 12-month Intensive Training Programs during which she had become thoroughly acclimated on how to become gifted with her craft and, most importantly, how to strategically set herself apart of others in a similar line of work.

Interestingly, the sustained success of Homecoming Pound Cakes has even given way to this venture emerging a regular for participating in various events and festivals during which Eaves and Price go to great lengths to provide what they describe as “elaborate and elegant to simple dessert bars.”

“We have shipped products to New York and Maryland,” Eaves said. “We have met a broad range of people who all have enjoyed Homecoming Pound Cakes. We take it over the top in excellence, in taste, in texture, and in touch.

“People all ages enjoy good cake. Even my three-year-old grandson, Jasiah, says, ‘hmmmm,’ when he is eating Homecoming Pound Cakes.”

By and large, positioning her daughter to ultimately assume the CEO role of the family’s baking business had been in the works for some time, Eaves said. That way, she could shift her focus more on overseeing the day-to-day operations of professional counseling endeavor. A native of Reidsville, North Carolina, Eaves, 62, is a credible licensed professional counselor for Brookdell & Beck Counseling Services, her Eden, North Carolina-based practice that is widely known for offering therapy services for adults, children, and elders, particularly in Eden and surrounding areas.

Now that her daughter has effectively assumed ownership of the family business, Eaves is confident Homecoming Pound Cakes’ best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“My competitive drive in this business was wanting to share something great with others,” Eaves said. “I’ve always wanted to share fantastic sales, bargains, and knowledge with other people…never wanted to keep it to myself. I enjoy sharing. Twenty years later, I started back baking pound cakes for family and friends.”

A remarkably compelling trend that won’t merely go away any time soon.

Houston author Shelita M. Anderson dedicated to ‘advancing the kingdom’ at upcoming National Black Book Festival


“She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.” (Proverbs 31:17)


MAKING A DIFFERENCE 

ON CENTER STAGE — Shelita Anderson, along with a gallery of her colleagues, will be be on hand for the National Black Book Festival (or NBBF) on October 25-26 in Houston.

According to Shelita M. Anderson’s bio, she widely regarded as an author who customarily writes books that are inspirational, spiritual, and bring about a message of hope.

To her credit, she’s now going to great lengths to take her immeasurable spiritual gifts a step further.
Anderson, along with a gallery of her colleagues, will be on hand for the National Black Book Festival (or NBBF) on October 25-26.
A two-day event that is powered by the NBBF, the National Black Book Festival will take at Houston’s Fallbrook Church, located at 12512 Walters Road.
A festival for adults — and youths ranging in ages three-and-up — the NBBF is considered the largest African-American book event in the South, a spokesperson told Making Headline News this week.
An event that is free and open to the public, Friday’s opening session will take place from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. CST. Saturday’s session that geared toward children will take place from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. CST.

More than 100 authors from around the country are expected to attend this festival, which will include more than a dozen featured speakers, each of whom are accomplished authors.

An event that is free and open to the public, Friday’s opening session will take place from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. CST. Saturday’s session that for children will take place from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. CST.

For Anderson, a native of Houston, she has gone to great lengths to fully embrace the purpose for which she was created, particularly through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

That’s because Anderson has written seven books to date, including three children’s books within the past six years.


MORE ON THE NBBF: http://www.nationalblackbookfestival.com/

As it relates to her affiliation with the NBBF, Anderson said her purpose and mission is centered largely on sharing hope and inspiration to children and adults through the art of writing.

“My purpose and mission for the radio show is to use my voice to speak to all generations through inspiration and interactive communication,” said Anderson, referring to KCOH Radio, KCOH-TV, 92.9FM, HD2, and The Nolen Davis Show, the media outlets that will be on hand for the NBBF.

The feedback Anderson has garnered about this festival has been overwhelmingly favorable, she said.


“(People have said) ‘I would love to come to see the work of black authors. I will definitely be there to support you. I want my children to experience an event such as this,” Anderson said.


While referencing Mark 9:23, Anderson emphasized that the two-day book festival will serve as a strategic way, of sorts, particularly as it pertains to impacting the kingdom.

“Both events (will) impact the kingdom in a positive manner by showing that when you put God first, you can do anything, because nothing is too hard for Him,” Anderson said. “Many authors have endured hardships to get to the place where they have written, completed, published, and now marketing their books. This is a testimony that if you can believe all things are possible.”

Interestingly, she is responsible for having authored what has become her featured book entitled, “My Mommy, Cancer, And Me,” an awe-inspiring written work dedicated to children whose parents have been stricken by cancer.

Ironically, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Louisiana author LaDonna Jarden fulfilling her God-mandated purpose with 10 books and counting


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


GOD’S LEADING LADY

DESTINY STEPS — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Louisiana Christian author LaDonna Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author. Jarden has authored 10 books since 2004.

DALLAS — Ten and counting.

That is the number of books accomplished Christian-based author LaDonna Jarden has written throughout an authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade and a half.
Her latest written work, “Bruised But Not Broken: Worshipping With A Broken Heart,” is presently in the works and, much to her delight, has already created a favorable buzz for Jarden, a native of Houston.
During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author.
“It (is) a testimony of life issues I was dealing with,” Jarden, a DeRidder, Louisiana-based writer, said of her latest book, a spiritually-equipping project that will be released at a date to be announced. “It was a coping mechanism for me to release the pain I was enduring.”

BUY AUTHOR JARDEN’S BOOKS HERE: https://authorityconsultingservices.wordpress.com/

Jarden’s authorship debut occurred in 2001 during which she discovered her sister was ill. She completed her initial project two years later.

To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

Prior to that timeframe, Jarden had written books every two years.

“In this book I’m publishing is for my sisters,” ladies, please stop holding every man accountable for (your) past relationship issues,” said Jarden, explaining the divine message she’s aiming to send to her audience through her newly-assembled book. “If you allow God to heal the hurt, you can overcome this.”

In a nutshell, Jarden emphasized, what it all boils down to seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction, particularly when it comes to putting the past where it belongs: behind you.


“I’m not saying it’s easy, but you will get through it,” Jarden said. “I’m reminded the story of Job. He lost all he had, but he fell to the ground and worshipped. He said, ‘The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,…blessed be the name of the Lord.’ He worshipped God and remained faithful.”


A book that is a spinoff from a conference Jarden customarily hosts, this devout woman of faith said the feedback through her books has been overwhelmingly favorable.

“I’ve counseled many single women on relationships,” Jarden said. “I’ve gone to marriage retreats, taught women’s conferences, etc.

As Jarden has reiterated time and again to those to whom she counsels, “Everything we face in life has a purpose.”


THROUGH IT ALL…

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

Interestingly, she even deemed it essential to offer a great deal of transparency when sharing with others her assortment of life-changing testimonies.

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

An accomplished businesswoman in her own right — she owns a T-shirt line and credible publishing company — Jarden is giddy of the fact that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


A NOTABLE REMINDER…

How else to explain why she’s made some pretty considerable strides as a Christian-based author?

“There are many other books I know God has purposed me to do,” said Jarden, whose itinerary includes an engagement in December during which she will enlighten women knowing their position and purpose in ministry.

An authorship tenure that spans nearly 16 years, Jarden said amongst her strategic objectives to encourage people from various walks of life to development the mindset tell of God’s goodness through their testimonies.

IN HER OWN ZONE — To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

“I believe that if we as believers would tell our story, then we can win others to Christ,” Jarden said. “Pursue your purpose and God will use you for His glory. I am now a publisher with my own publishing company.”

To her credit, she’s undoubtedly savoring the fruits of her labor.

“This year, I have published five (authors’ books), and I have personally written 10 books,” Jarden said. “I’ve been writing for 15 years.”

And counting.

Talk about allowing God to use her mightily according to His purpose.

Wendy Magee was all ears.

She heard all of what essentially was nothing more than murmuring and complaining —at least from a spiritual perspective.

Even as she listened attentively to a gallery of women collectively question the purpose for they were created, she sensed it was a civic duty to helped steer them in the right direction with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“I began hearing many women questioning their purpose,” Magee told Making Headline News this week. “As I spoke with these women, I found that many of them have been married for several years and feeling like they have lost themselves and didn’t have a purpose.”
