Arizona AAU basketball player Hannah Young ‘will be D-1 ready’ by 2023, her prep coach says

YOUNG AND GIFTED

BRINGIN’ IT — Besides proving to be as good as advertised for a player whose best and brightest days are well ahead of her, Arizona Select 15-and-under basketball player Hannah Young seemingly has taken it upon herself to go to the extra mile, particularly with regards to becoming a better overall student athlete.

DALLAS — It doesn’t take much to fuel Robin Young’s desire to strike up an in-depth conversation about Hannah Young, her gifted amateur athlete daughter, who’s making her presence felt on the AAU circuit.

Consider, for instance, how Robin routinely goes about assessing the performance of her daughter, a 13-year-old athlete who stars for the Arizona Select Girls Under Amour Association 15-and-under squad that’s based in Phoenix.
“Hannah is a diamond in the rough,” Robin told Making Headline News during a recent interview.
That her immeasurable mechanics, coupled with her length and wing span, have progressed considerably in recent years, Robin and those who have monitored closely Hannah’s rise as a youth basketball player have christened her with a name that figures to stick for years to come.

“We call her the clean-up woman,” Robin said of her daughter, who has gone from a shooting guard to a power forward since making a transition to the 15-and-under division. “She makes moves to the basket and finishes when giving the ball in the post. Rebounding and mid-range jumper have improved along with her put-backs.”

Besides proving to be as good as advertised for a player whose best and brightest days are well ahead of her, Hannah seemingly has taken it upon herself to go to the extra mile, particularly with regards to becoming a better overall student athlete.

That her immeasurable mechanics, coupled with her length and wing span, have progressed considerably in recent years, Robin and those who have monitored closely Hannah’s rise as a youth basketball player have christened her with a name that figures to stick for years to come.

During the course of the summer, for instance, the rising Xavier College Preparatory freshman not only established a camaraderie by playing pickup games with her high school teammates, but she also found time between competitive play by taking two summer school classes.

For her valiant efforts: two A’s, a feat that consequently brought her mother to all smiles.


“She understands the true meaning of student athlete,” Robin said of her daughter’s willingness to exceed her own expectations. “She works hard on and off the court.”


A native of nearby Irving, Texas, Hannah has become engaged in what undoubtedly has been an eventful summer for a youth athlete, who’s making a solid case that she’s destined to attract interests from college scouts and recruiters — much sooner than later.

Amongst the reasons is that she’s currently active with a somewhat congested AAU itinerary, one that included a recent visit to the Mill City Invitational in Minnesota and the Girls Under Amour Session II in Indianapolis.

But wait. She isn’t finished.

Hannah also is scheduled to participate in the AAU’s Southern Showtime in Atlanta from July 20-22 and will cap off her summer-long slate by competing in the Girls Under Amour Finals July 23-26.

Arizona Select is comprised of five different teams and three UAA age divisions (15, 16, and 17-and-under).

ALL-AROUND ATHLETE — During the course of the summer, for instance, the rising Xavier College Preparatory freshman not only established a camaraderie by playing pickup games with her high school team, but she also found the time between competitive play by taking two summer school classes. For her valiant efforts: two A’s, a feat that consequently brought her mother to all smiles.

The 15-and-under squad is comprised of its top freshmen and middle school players, particularly those who do not earn roster spots on 16-and-under team. A team that represents Arizona Select’s Girls 15-and-under division of Under Armour Association, players selected to this team are elite participants, who successfully compete against elite competition at their respective age division and are striving to play high level college basketball.

Interestingly, the players will compete in regional and national events against other GUAA teams, as well as against elite competition nationwide. Their schedules include — but isn’t limited to — team practices, skills training, strength and conditioning training, and frequent out-of-state travel.

As for the immeasurable exposure Hannah has had the luxury to garner, Robin says she daughter is especially deserving of it, given her solid work ethic.

“(Xavier College Preparatory) coach Jennifer Gillom is excited to have Hannah as a freshman,” Robin said. “She believes that at the end of her four years at Xavier, she will be D-1 (Division 1) ready. Gillom loves that fact that Hannah is coachable and so eager to get to the next level.”


ARIZONA MADNESS 

NATIONAL AUDITION — The 15-and-under UAA team is comprised of its top freshmen and middle school players, particularly those who do not earn roster spots on 16-and-under team. A team that represents Arizona Select’s Girls 15-and-under division of Under Armour Association, players selected to this team is elite players, who successfully compete against elite competition at their respective age division and are striving to play high level college basketball.

But first thing’s first, Robin’s stressed.

“Hannah’s goal is to bring Xavier College Preparatory its first girls’ high school state championship.”

As if anyone should be surprised.

Connecticut author Tamara Mitchell-Davis savoring fruits of her labor with two books and counting


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)


ROYALTY GOALS 

FIT FOR A QUEEN — To her distinctly unique credit, it is in large part because of the divine calling on her life that Tamara Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to function mightily in her element as an accomplished author, who is responsible for having composed two books to date.

DALLAS — Tamara Mitchell-Davis absolutely is passionate about writing.

So much, in fact, that such a notable craft has become an integral part of the divine purpose for which she was created.
“I’ve always been into writing,” Mitchell-Davis, a Hartford, Connecticut-based author, told Making Headline News this week. “But when it came to creating my own books, I had it in my head for a long time.”
To her distinctly unique credit, it is in large part because of the divine calling on her life that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to function mightily in her element as an accomplished author, who is responsible for having composed two books to date.
A book that is accompanied by 166 pages and was officially released on September 20, 2018, Mitchell-Davis’ “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges” appropriately reveals three pertinent reasons people customarily don’t achieve their goals, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

“People don’t achieve their goals because of three reasons: They get stuck in regret; They don’t have a plan in place; They give up way too soon,” said a spokesperson for Mitchell-Davis’ “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges.’ “#GoalGetter’ is here to show you what’s next. In this book, Tamara Mitchell-Davis will share practical strategies and solutions to overcome everyday challenges in order to live your best life.”

In this Amazon bestseller book, Mitchell-Davis eloquently reminds us that many times, putting faith over fear is easier said than done.

And then there is “Goodbye Fear, Hello Destiny,” a spiritually-empowering and life-changing project that made its ceremonious release just last year with foreword written by Joelle Murchison, the CEO of ExecMommy Group.

In this Amazon bestseller book, Mitchell-Davis eloquently reminds us that many times, putting faith over fear is easier said than done.


“But anything worth having, never comes easy, and getting to your destiny isn’t always a breeze or fun,” this Christian-based writer emphasizes. “With life pulling you in every direction, sometimes, seeing the big picture is no easy task. It’s easy to give up hope. It’s easy to feel defeated and to keep looking back in the past.”


The chief executive officer for The CEO Writer’s Academy for Wives, Mitchell-Davis in 2017 witness her authorship tenure come full circle, courtesy of her first written work entitled, “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges.”

But after you’ve suffered while…

Or, according to Mitchell-Davis…

“What if you stayed focused, pushed forward and realized that there was no such thing as failure? Who would you become? What would you be? Who is counting on you, to reach your destiny?” she posed to her reading audience.

All things considered, that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to assemble a pair of awe-inspiring books didn’t merely come easy. Nevertheless, the journey undoubtedly has been well worth it.

“It wasn’t until I worked through some internal things that I was ready to share it with the world,” Mitchell-Davis said of her immeasurable gift as a writer. “I had a lot of questions, because I had never done the writing and publishing thing.”

But amongst the things she discovered as a result is that God had other strategic plans for her life, despite the flurry of inquiries that were lingering on her brain.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I know that my books are purpose driven by the responses I have received from my readers. They can relate to my information and they are inspired and motivated by my message which causes them to self-reflect and take action.”

And if God said it, that settles it.

“There wasn’t too many people around me that I could lean on for support, assistance or even mentoring,” Mitchell-Davis, referring to the memorable developments surrounding her quest to become an author. “I ended up figuring it out by myself, in which the underlying reasons and message for writing was to inspire and motivate others.”

So far, so good for an avid author, whose best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

Since the much-anticipated release of her latest book, Mitchell-Davis has launched The CEO Wife Writer’s Academy, her online learning community that caters to women (most notably, wives), who are interested in writing and publishing their own book by leveraging their expertise and building a business with it.

“My books are non-fiction and (my stories are) my own personal experiences and journey through life, so others can see that their past does not dictate or determine their future…that being stuck is never a permanent situation unless you choose it to be,” Mitchell-Davis said.

“I know that my books are purpose driven by the responses I have received from my readers. They can relate to my information and they are inspired and motivated by my message which causes them to self-reflect and take action.”

DESTINY STEPS 


All things considered, that Mitchell-Davis has been blessed to assemble a pair of awe-inspiring books didn’t merely come easy. Nevertheless, the journey undoubtedly has been well worth it.

“I work with them to get ideas from head space to paper and into a published book, Mitchell-Davis explained. “Since writing, I have had speaking engagements, interviews, media features continuously look forward to learning and growing.”

Credit her remarkably compelling craft as an eloquent writer as the No. 1 reason why.

Texas author Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” rapidly emerges as a global bestseller


Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16 KJV)


A PRAYING VISIONARY 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A collaborative project that is comprised of 52 authors from around the country, Cheryl Polote-Williamson is responsible for having forwarded a “Soulful Prayers” published movement that, to her credit, has been as good advertised.

DALLAS — Given her immeasurable, longstanding resume, it would be rather befitting to refer to accomplished Flower Mound, Texas-based businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson as a serial author, of sorts.

That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.
Especially her latest awe-inspiring written work entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” a spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact — this amid a little less than three weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.

HERE’S THE DEAL — “‘Soulful Prayers’ aids in my purpose to reach out to millions of people for the kingdom,” Polote-Williamson said. “This book was put in my heart by God, and it is the product of people, who were driven by God to write these prayers.”

“I have received so much positive feedback,” Polote-Williamson told Making Headline News this week. “For instance, some have said the book gave them a sense of freedom from the darkness they are in. They feel like they are no longer hostages to their past. Others have said they incorporated the book in to their daily walk with God to help them pray.”

Interestingly, that Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” was spearheaded in January of this year and took somewhere in the neighborhood of just four months to go to press is indicative of the overall work ethic of this Christian-based author, who recently announced that plans are effectively underway to compose “Soulful Prayers 2.”

“I want people to understand that prayer is an intentional conversation with God, and it does not have to be perfect or planned just from the heart,” said Polote-Williamson, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her latest book. “I chose to produce the book, because I recognize the importance of having intentional communication with God. In addition, everyone struggles with how to come to God on particular topics, and I wanted this book to serve as a guide for leading those open prayers.”


Mission accomplished, thanks in large part to the diligent, steadfast act of obedience by this devout woman of faith, whose much-anticipated and latest project has not only created a continuous national buzz, but has already emerged as an Amazon Bestseller in the process.

That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.

But wait.

Although she’s orchestrated a dozen-plus books to date, Polote-Williamson is nowhere near done retiring the pad and pen.

Nope, not by a long shot.

“I plan to start on Soulful Prayers 2 and Soul Talk 3,” Polote-Williamson said. “In addition to books, I have now begun to work in film. For instance, I am the executive producer in the short film, ‘Illegal Rose,’ which has been submitted for review to several film festivals. Outside of ‘Illegal Rose,’ I have started working on my own personal film project, (Saving Clarissa) which is set to release in 2020.”

Much to her delight, speaking engagements and public appearances have become a customary trend for Polote-Williamson, the CEO of Cheryl Polote Williamson LLC, who’s widely regarded as an award-winning entrepreneur, bestselling author, speaker, philanthropist, as well as a notable transformational leader, one who has aided more than 145 individuals accomplished their long-awaited dreams of becoming bestselling authors.

In their own right.

“‘Soulful Prayers’ aids in my purpose to reach out to millions of people for the kingdom,” Polote-Williamson said. “This book was put in my heart by God, and it is the product of people, who were driven by God to write these prayers.”

All the while joining forces to advance the kingdom as a result.

North Carolina Christian author Sarah Johnson flexes her spiritual muscles through her new book


Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you; but rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12-13 NIV)


SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 

THE PSALM 105:1 FACTOR — Sarah Johnson’s newly-produced book depicts the assortment of events involving a fanatical, excited lover and pleaser of God, all the while enduring what she describes as continual challenges, most notably molestation, abandonment, domestic violence, cancer, divorce, even the death of her father or, as this Christian-based author says, “blows from every side.”

DALLAS — Some five years or so ago, God thought it necessary to use someone to pose a rather memorable question to Sarah Johnson.

Once again.

To her credit, she fielded the question as if she expected it.
“I was given the vision to write my book in 2014,” Johnson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments surrounding her newly-assembled written work. “I attended a conference and was asked if I had started writing the book.”
Interestingly, it was a thought-provoking inquiry that essentially rested on Johnson’s brain for an extended period of time.
“I went home that night, prayed to God, and asked for the blueprint,” Johnson said. “I wrote chapters one and two that night.”

And, from that point on, such a remarkable sequence had ultimately blossomed into a remarkable turn of events, a trend that eventually resulted in a full blown book entitled, “Survivor Once, Survivor For Life: Overcomer Of Cancer, Death Of A Marriage And Death Of A Parent.”

Widely regarded as an “award-winning overcomer of challenges and adversities,” Johnson has been appropriately dubbed a mother to “just five” talented, gifted and amazing children.

Her newly-produced book, in fact, depicts the assortment of events involving a fanatical, excited lover and pleaser of God, all the while enduring what she describes as continual challenges, most notably molestation, abandonment, domestic violence, cancer, divorce, even the death of her father or, as this Christian-based, Greensboro, North Carolina author says, “blows from every side.”

KINGDOM IMPACT — A devout woman of faith whose rash of hardships has fueled her desire to establish a close-knit relationship with Almighty God, Johnson emphasized that new book is designed in large part to encourage individuals, especially women from various walks of life.

But God…

“She counts it an honor to have been chosen by God as His model,” said a spokesperson in a detailed introduction of Johnson’s Survivor Once, Survivor For Life: Overcomer Of Cancer, Death Of A Marriage And Death Of A Parent” at http://www.survivoroncesurvivorforlife.com/. “Sarah is forever grateful for every opportunity to serve as a model for God’s goodness, grace, mercy, love, unmerited favor, strength, and healing.”

Having garnered a Master’s Degree in Biblical Theological Studies in December 2018 from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in nearby Waxahachie, Texas, Johnson is a native of Dallas/Fort Worth and is currently enrolled in SAG’s Master of Divinity program.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “God has allowed everything I have encountered — the good, bad and indifferent — to encourage other women that they too can overcome all of the challenges that are before them,” said Johnson, adding that at least two more books are on the horizon. “I am living proof that you do not have to be a statistic, regardless of your profile.”

“(I want to encourage women) that no matter the lemons you hold in your hand, lemons make the perfect lemonade,” Johnson said. “Obstacles, setbacks, lack of support from family, failed marriages, cancer, being homeless are not excuses to count yourself out. Get back in the fight for life and win it.”


Widely regarded as an “award-winning overcomer of challenges and adversities,” Johnson has been appropriately dubbed a mother to “just five” talented, gifted and amazing children.

Because she’s thoroughly convinced that God has strategically sanctified her for such a pivotal time as now to help advance the kingdom through her assortment of tear-jerking testimonies, Johnson is pleading with the world to commit to getting this book now — even at the presale order stage.

Why?

“The book will bless the lives of many,” she said without hesitation.

All things considered, Johnson is forever grateful she obeyed the Voice of God at that conference some five years ago.

“Often times, the challenges we face have absolutely nothing to do with us, but has everything to do with those individuals we encounter throughout our journey of life,” Johnson continued. “I have survived almost every imaginable trial you could think, to help and encourage others that they can survive each obstacle and thrive.”

Over and over again.

Virginia businesswoman Ieshia Leverette’s authorship debut comes amid obeying God’s Voice


We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 KJV)


WHAT’S THE 411?

KEEPING IT 100 — A spiritually-empowering written document that will make its official debut on the market on July 14, Ieshia Leverette’s “Naked Truth” was assembled, in large part because God strategically assigned her to do so.

Earlier this week, one of Ieshia Leverette’s Facebook friends took to her timeline, where she deemed it essential to publicly pass along a few pleasantries to the Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur.

“You have no idea how proud I am of you,” Fena Apple‎ wrote to Leverette on her social media page.
For what it’s worth, that Leverette’s friend thought it necessary to give her some well-deserved props is a microcosm of how those with whom she’s crossed paths of late have come to embrace and commend her for her assortment of achievements in recent years.
A thriving, progressive businesswoman who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles — most notably as President of FitRealty — Leverette has achieved yet another monumental milestone as the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Naked Truth.”
A spiritually-empowering written document that will make its official debut on the market on July 14, Leverette’s “Naked Truth” was assembled, in large part because God strategically assigned her to do so.

“God wanted me to share my story to inspire others who may not understand that life can change,” Leverette told Making Headline News this week. “You can overcome obstacles. He wanted me to help bridge others into who they deserve to be and let them know it is possible.”

For Leverette, her authorship comes amid a disheartening marital dissolution, a development that transpired a few years ago, an occurrence that essentially brought about assortment of changes — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Leverette’s “Naked Truth” is the first of a three-part series because, according to this author, “there’s no way I could tell my life in one book.”

“I felt like I was going into another season in my life while going through a divorce from my husband of almost eight years,” Leverette explained. “I didn’t want to keep delaying this project. I felt it in my heart and God told me now was the time.”

But first, Leverette had to alter her way of thinking in order to execute her immeasurable gifts as a writer.


“I thought only old people wrote books about their life,” Leverette said. “But then I thought if I don’t start documenting my life, I will forget my humble beginnings.  It honestly was the best therapy one could do in their life. It has helped me re-discover myself in ways I never connected.”


As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through “Naked Truth,” Leverette is rather forthright and to-the-point when offering an appropriate assessment.

“No matter the journey you travel, the path you take, or how long it takes if you keep going, you will find yourself creating a way to become who you deserve to be,” Leverette said without hesitation. “You may think you have a hard life, but the fact of the matter is everyone has a story.”

All things considered, Leverette would be the first to admit that the slew of experiences through which she’s gone and conquered undoubtedly have been her greatest teachers in the life of this young businesswoman-turned-author.

Now that Leverette has steadfastly remained true to herself, coupled with having obeyed the Voice of God by composing a book that figures to have a massive impact, she’s thoroughly convinced that because she’s successfully embraced changed, she’s spiritually equipped to enable others to follow suit.

“Everyone has experienced some form of trauma…if you really get to know them,” Leverette said. “Some (people’s) scars are deeper than others, but they do exist. Just ask. Always uplift, smile, and encourage others, even if they’re strangers, because you never know who is dealing with what.”

All things considered, Leverette would be the first to admit that the slew of experiences through which she’s gone and conquered undoubtedly have been her greatest teachers throughout the life of this young businesswoman-turned-author.

“I’ve often had questions as to why am I this way or why do I respond like this, etc.,” Leverette said. “Well, writing this book and reading it over and over gave me clarification and explanations I could never understand before. Furthermore, it helped me close gaps of my life that I was not aware of.

For Leverette, her authorship comes amid a disheartening marital dissolution, a development that transpired a few years ago, an occurrence that essentially brought about assortment of changes — the good, the bad, and the ugly.

“I had my editor do interviews of my parents and friends, which you can find at the end of the book. When I read the interviews, it allowed me to see the perspective from their eyes and help me find a place of resolve to be forgiving.  Most often, we think people are just hurting us when the fact is they came from a line of hurt, so they don’t know that they’re hurting you.”

As expected, the feedback she’s garnered she’s announcing the forthcoming release of her new book has been favorable, Leverette said.

“(Many have said) it’s a powerful story (and that) I’m a strong person,” Leverette said. “They enjoy the diction in the excerpts that I’ve been releasing to my audience. It was also said to be very brave and bold of me to share my story.”

A story that like one of social media followers said earlier this week, figures to prompt others to express just how proud of her they are.

DESTINY STEPS

GOD’S FAITH STEPPER — A native of San Antonio, Destiny Sherman is owner and chief executive officer of Faith View Media, her newly-erected Dallas/Fort Worth-area venture whereby her mission includes, among other things, encouraging others to live their life by faith or, as she puts it plainly, by telling others stories through creative media, she emphasized.

FRISCO, Texas — For a young, vibrant Texas businesswoman, amongst the notable things that stands out about Destiny Sherman is that she’s proven to be true to herself.

Interestingly, it is an awe-inspiring attribute that has greatly enabled her to enrich and enhance the lives of others.
“It is so important for me to inspire others, because I know it is what God destined me to do,” Sherman told Making Headline News this week.
To her distinctly unique credit, God has deemed it essential to enlarge Sherman’s territory, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as a rising professional photographer.

Aside from offering photography services, Sherman’s Faith View Media also is widely known for servicing clients through videography.

A native of San Antonio, Sherman is owner and chief executive officer of Faith View Media, her newly-erected Dallas/Fort Worth-area venture whereby her strategic mission includes, among other things, encouraging others to live their life by faith or, as she puts it plainly, by telling others stories through creative media, she emphasized.

Aside from offering photography services, Sherman’s Faith View Media also is widely known for servicing clients through videography.

Aside from emerging as one of the area’s best kept secrets in the ever-so-competitive photography industry, Sherman is an accomplished social worker.

“I love that I get to encourage others to walk by faith and I also love that I get to build relationships with my clients…to see what faith means to them,” Sherman said of the continuous progress of her endeavor.

Aside from emerging as one of the area’s best kept secrets in the ever-so-competitive photography industry, Sherman is an accomplished social worker.

A University of Texas at Arlington graduate, who holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Social Work, Sherman also holds a Master’s in Social Work with an emphasis on Community and Administrative Practice.

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made both in her profession as a social worker, as well through her up-and-coming business venture, Sherman doesn’t away from the notion that God has had major plans for her life for quite some time.


“I have been through too much for me to just keep the knowledge I’ve gained to myself,” Sherman said. “I want to make sure that I pour into others so that they can either avoid, what I went through, or power through it, because of knowledge and understanding.”


A Faith View Media business that is a few months removed since its inception, Sherman credits Almighty God for introducing her to a craft that, by all accounts, has become her passion.

“He gave me a vision and I kept it in my heart for over a year…almost two,” Sherman said. “Then in 2019, He was like, ‘Start the business now.’”

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made both in her profession as a social worker, as well through her up-and-coming business venture, Sherman doesn’t away from the notion that God has had major plans for her life for quite some time.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Much to her delight, Sherman is savoring the best of both worlds as a Corporate America professional and a resourceful photographer, whose best and brightest days seemingly are well ahead of her.

Much to her delight, Sherman is savoring the best of both worlds as a Corporate America professional and a resourceful photographer, whose best and brightest days seemingly are well ahead of her.

“I’ve always been a creative, but I did not buy my first professional camera until 2018,” said Sherman, adding that she had to “find the courage” and take a “leap of faith.” “So for a year-and-a-half, I have been shooting.”

All the while moving ever so closely toward her destiny in the process.

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Maryland author LaVerne Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters of Zion’ quickly creating a global buzz since its release


Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. (Psalm 105:1 NIV)


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED 

GLOAL IMPACT — A book that made its official debut on November 6, 2018, Maryland author LaVerne Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” recalls, among other things, how when trials, temptation, and death strike, it can be difficult for most to find comfort or peace amidst the turmoil and the whirlwind of emotions it brings, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com.

As far as telling one’s story goes, LaVerne Perlie is only making known God’s deeds among His people.

“The power of telling your story is one of the best ways to inspire and motivate others to consider change,” Perlie told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “I believe collaboration and partnership symbolize the strength women possess. So I wanted to collect the heart of the women, capture their thoughts in writing, and demonstrate the bond of unified voices in action.
“Sharing your story opens the door to endless possibilities to make a difference in someone’s life. Now is the time.”
Indeed it is for Perlie, a Maryland-based writer, who is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring and compelling book entitled, “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.”

A book that made its official debut on November 6, 2018, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” recalls, among other things, how when trials, temptation, and death strike, it can be difficult for most to find comfort or peace amidst the turmoil and the whirlwind of emotions it brings, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com.

Still, each tragedy, Perlie acknowledges, is an opportunity for an amazing story that can encourage others who are experiencing their own devastation.

“Author LaVerne Perlie recognized the impact of sharing life’s heartbreaks and the healing power of prayer,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.’

ON ONE ACCORD — A book that is comprised of 136 pages in length, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” a is a collaborative written work that is includes contributions by authors Linda Caldwell Boykin, Carla McCray, Arvinese Reid, Jackqueline Easley, Michelle Baylor, Paula Grange, and Tawanda Holmes.

“In her first anthology, Born Again Daughters of Zion, she has compiled the stories of eight dynamic women of God who, in times of despair, experienced healing, transformation, and triumph. The words within the pages of this book are a testament to how trials connect human spirits, no matter how unique the circumstances, and that we do not have to suffer alone.”

A book that took a little more than a year to assemble, Perlie emphasized, among other things, the divine message she and her authorship team are sending to their audience is rather direct and straight to the point.

That is, “(all of us must) take authority over our lives, close the door of our past, open the door to our future, and march right into our destiny,” she said. “You are no longer an outcast. Readers should experience feelings of strength, well- being, and motivation to move forward.”

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.

“The readers will feel as if they have met the authors of the chapters personally,” Perlie said. “At the end of a story, there is charge to every reader, which really is affirmations. Readers are encouraged to speak these affirmations over their lives daily and believe what they are saying.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

That’s because Perlie was apart of the collaborative book entitled, “Soul Talk 2,” another anthology project that was released in 2018, which is highlighted by her subject, “Trust God Through The Process.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.


“Since writing the book, many people have mentioned how this book has open their eyes to pursue their purpose in life and not to allow distractions or challenges hinder them from achieving positive outcomes,” Perlie said. “I’ve been asked to mentor, coach, teach, and speak to women ages 15 to 79.”


As Perlie’s book becomes more of a global fixture, the more golden opportunities arise for her to share of his brilliant gifts as an author.

Perlie is current on hand for the Global United Fellowship The Gathering 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas,  an event that runs through July 12 at the Atlantis Hotel and Conference Center.

She will then attend the Women In Pursuit Retreat from August 16-17, at the Bon Secours retreat Center in Marriottsville, Maryland.

“Since releasing this book I’ve been invited to speak in Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, (Washington) D.C., and churches throughout  Baltimore,” Perlie said.

IT’S ALL GOOD — As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.

Without questions, she’s overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that God is steadily allowing her gifts to make room for her.

Never mind that slew of challenges that often arose to challenge her faith.

At the end of the real day, God was there all the time.

“If you desire to pursue your dream, you must understand that challenges are a part of the process to achieve the goal,” Perlie said. “How you think and respond to that challenge or barrier determines your fate. If your mind is set on pursuit, I encourage you to pursue everything without hindrance.”

Spoken like a true champion for Christ.

Queen, New York’s own Juanita Payne one of 52 authors to contribute to bestselling ‘Soulful Prayers’ project


For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. (Jeremiah 29:11 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR PAYNE 

WELL CONNECTED — For Maryland author Juanita Payne, all it took was a divine connection with one of her social media followers that impressed it upon God’s heart to position her to reap a supernatural blessing for such a time as now, a time that had ultimately given way to her putting her immeasurable spiritual gift on display for the entire world to see. Payne is one of 52 authors to contribute to the bestselling winning book entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — God’s thoughts toward Juanita Payne undoubtedly are of peace.

Amongst the biggest reasons is that Payne is steadfastly armed with a solid, resilient bend-but-don’t-break prayer life.
“As a woman of God, I have always ministered to people willingly and in every place that I go,” Payne told Making Headline News this week. “It’s always comes natural to learn from, and to use my life experiences as a way to help empower people that I encounter on a daily basis. With being blessed with the opportunity, I’ve set out to continuing my ministry through the book project.”
The book project to which Payne is alluding is the globally-acclaimed, bestselling winning written work entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

A book that was officially launched during a nationally-acclaimed ceremony here last weekend, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” is forwarded by award-winning and bestselling author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

“I corresponded with a mutual friend and we came to the conclusion that the progression of my spiritual journey included the Soul Movement, and that this was something ordained from God,” Payne said. “I felt that was imperative that we both take part in the continuation of the project.”


And so it came to pass, the God-ordained contributions by Payne, one of 52 Soulful Prayers contributors, who wasted little time obeying the Voice of her Creator only to emerge as the beneficiary of a much-anticipated harvest.

So much for the slew of unfavorable situations and circumstances Payne has endured during this thing called life.

FOR STARTERS — Prior to joining forces with Soulful Prayers authors, Payne co-authored “Beyond Her Reflection,” a book that was officially completed around this time last year and a project that led to this writer being nominated for an IALA award for bestselling co-author.

What matters at this point, quite frankly, is that this devout woman of faith was destined to outlast and conquer virtually every obstacle that emerged in her life to challenge her faith, a trend that has greatly enabled her to live on the larger side of God as a result.

“As a single mother, one of my biggest challenges I faced was overcoming some of the long-term damage that was done in my family,” Payne recalled. “In Soulful Prayers, my divine message is a request of protection and safety for our children, especially our daughters.

“In noticing similar damage in other families, I feel that it is important to tell the world that we shouldn’t feel ashamed to come to God, as He is always available for us and ready to help,” Payne, a native of Queens, New York, continued. “Our daughters encounter both seen and unseen forces that they may not understand or be ready to deal with, and my prayer covers the topics of spiritual warfare, renewal of the mind, and the gift of favor from God.”

Prior to joining forces with the Soulful Prayers authors, Payne co-authored “Beyond Her Reflection,” a book that was officially completed around this time last year, a project that led to this writer being nominated for an IALA award for bestselling co-author.

And so it came to pass, the God-ordained contributions by Payne, one of 52 Soulful Prayers contributors, who wasted little time obeying the Voice of her Creator only to emerge as the beneficiary of a much-anticipated harvest.

“My contribution to this book covered what I had learned growing up in New York and how dealing with my mother’s addiction helped me along my spiritual walk with God,” Payne, who resides in Waldolf, Maryland, explained.

As for the immediate feedback she’s garnered since the release of Soulful Prayers, Payne describes it as nothing short of “amazing.”

“The general reception and the feedback I’ve received have nothing but amazing,” Payne said. “When I shared the story behind my book with a coworker, I felt an immediate sense of conviction from him. After thanking me, he told me that as a father to six daughters, he always felt the call to strengthen his prayer life for them. I’m so grateful, because in using my story with the guidance of wisdom of God, I’m able to help create powerful moments and improve other people’s prayer life.”

IN HER OWN WORDS — “As a woman of God, I have always ministered to people willingly and in every place that I go,” Payne told Making Headline News this week. “It’s always comes natural to learn from, and to use my life experiences as a way to help empower people that I encounter on a daily basis. With being blessed with the opportunity, I’ve set out to continuing my ministry through the book project.”

Which, all things considered, is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her, Payne acknowledged.

“As a woman, I know that I always have to be a strong figure not only for myself, but for my children,” said Payne, announcing that she is almost certain she will take part in Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers 2.’ “In addition, my own mother was a dedicated prayer warrior and set an amazing example for me. In my continual walk with God and witnessing what my mother did for me, it led me to intercessory prayer. It’s an honor to be able to further extend my calling into other mediums, as the possibilities are limitless.

“My journey has also led me to study health and nutrition in-depth, as I wanted to fully understand how we can better our day to day lifestyles as Christians  and how we can strengthen both our physical and spiritual connection to God,” Payne continued. “In 2017, I graduated from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and became a certified health coach. My research has lead me to commit to my own book project set to release within the next two years.”

Now we know why God’s thoughts toward His beloved child undoubtedly are of peace.

Celebrity actor Claudia Jordan to appear at inaugural Christmas In July Connect Fest hosted by Dallas’ Letitia Scott Jackson

DALLAS — Letitia Scott Jackson has a question she’d like to ask everyone.

“Do you know that it’s more of a blessing to give than it is to receive?” Scott Jackson asked her gallery of social media followers earlier this week. “It’s called principals. We are about to make miracles happen for kids and teens.”
Scott Jackson and host of friends and business associates will make that all possible during her inaugural Christmas In July Connect Fest.
An event that is powered by Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected nonprofit organization, the Christmas in July Connect Fest will take place on July 25 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. CST at Dallas’ Forest Central, located at 11520 North Central Express Way.

PLEASE DONATE TO KEEPING FAMILIES CONNECTED: https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/donate

An event that Scott Jackson said is unlike any other of its kind, the Christmas In July Connect Fest will be comprised of an array of entertainment, most notably an appearance by celebrity actor and renowned radio personality Claudia Jordan.

A native of Providence, Rhode Island, Jordan held the Miss Rhode Island Teen USA 1990 title and represented her native state at the Miss Teen USA 1990 pageant.

In 1997, she won the Miss Rhode Island USA title, becoming the second African-American woman ever to hold that title. In 1997, she competed at Miss USA, where she ultimately placed in the top 10.

Interestingly, Jordan has worked at the Providence American newspaper and at Boston’s WHDH-TV.

She has appeared in a variety of television commercials, most notably for Coors Light, Sears, Pepsi, and Visa.

Joining Jordan during Scott Jackson’s Christmas In July Connect Fest is BBVA Compass Bank’s Torry Abra, who will serve as the master of ceremony.

Scott Jackson whose community-based contributions have become fixtures throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, is looking forward to an event she said will become an annual adventure.

“This event is about to be epic,” Scott Jackson said. “We have several families that have signed up for the ‘Miracle Blessings,’ and we are going to bless them with a miracle Christmas in July.”

Most importantly, Scott Jackson emphasized that she and her team are extending a plea to the general public to make donations, which will enable them to help as many families as possible.

Donations can be made at logging on to:  www.keepingfamilyconnected.org.

Our mission for this monumental moment is to spread some love,” Scott Jackson, a native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, said. “Listen…because that is what we are about here at Keeping Families Connected.”


THE VISIONARY 

A DFW-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson established approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News during a March 2019 interview.

“We want the kids and teens to know that they matter most,” Scott Jackson said of her forthcoming event. “Keeping Families Connected is all about sharing God’s love and blessings with those that He places in our path along this journey.”
