Texas author A’Londa L. Barber’s spiritually-empowering new book generating an array of favorable reviews


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


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For A’Londa Barber, a Dallas/Fort Worth area resident who is native of El Paso, Texas, she was afforded the golden opportunity sometime last year to take yet another massive step toward her destiny, courtesy of her book entitled, “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.”

DALLAS — Nearly four decades — or 38 years to be exact.

That is the timeframe by which it had taken A’Londa L. Barber to admittedly come with the notion that God had strategically set her aside for His use.
“It took me 38 years to own up to who I was and to accept the life God had for me, because I spent so much time trying to live up to others’ expectations of me and who I should be,” Barber, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, explaining vividly the memorable developments that had given way to her having composed a new book.

“So many times, we hear about a man being on the downlow, but hardly do we hear about women who are on the downlow,” Barber said. “I know my journey was not just for me, but also for others to hear me share my testimony through transparency so they can hear about God’s grace and unconditional love.”

A book that was officially published last spring, Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” depicts the life of an Indigo which, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, is a woman torn between her flesh and her spirituality.

“Like so many women, she was robbed of her innocence as a child by a sexual predator,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.’ “That unwelcomed introduction to adulthood led her down a path of promiscuity and eventually a bisexual lifestyle.”

Moreover, as she grew into an adult, this Indigo had ultimately turned to the church for support and spiritual guidance only to find that some of her harshest critics sat in the pews next to her.

A MUST READ — A book that was officially published last spring, Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” depicts the life of an Indigo which, as mentioned in a detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, is a woman torn between her flesh and her spirituality.

All things considered, this author vividly reminds her reading audience that where man failed, her Lord and Savior prevailed, she writes.

Simply put, this is, by all accounts, her memorable and much-anticipated journey to deliverance, one that proves you can rise after you fall as long as you have faith as your crutch.

Having begun writing the first installment of her book in 2018, Barber has announced that “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 2” is presently in the works and is slated to be published in March 2020.


“No matter where you are in your life, accept it and walk in your truth,” said Barber, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience in “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1.’ “Our purpose here on earth is to fulfill the plan which God has designed for us, no matter what man thinks.”


As expected, the feedback since the release of Barber’s “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 1” has been nothing short of impression.

All of which much to the delight of this Christian-based author, practically sums up this book aligns with the divine purpose for which God has created her.

“Even though the book is fiction, it is based on true events of my life,” Barber explains. “This book is part of my purpose, because it allows me to tell my story of a sista on the downlow.

“So many times, we hear about a man being on the downlow, but hardly do we hear about women who are on the downlow,” Barber continued. “I know my journey was not just for me, but also for others to hear me share my testimony through transparency so they can hear about God’s grace and unconditional love.”

“It took me 38 years to own up to who I was and to accept the life God had for me, because I spent so much time trying to live up to others’ expectations of me and who I should be,” Barber, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, explaining vividly the memorable developments that had given way to her having composed a new book.

A book series she hopes will ultimately be transformed into a stage play, Barber has announced the “We D.I.D. It Book Tour” is forthcoming along with a half dozen other authors during which they will share their journeys from tragedy to triumph, all the while inspiring others’ life transformation.

“As far as personal speaking engagements, I have quite a few scheduled, but between the book tour and LonnieB Creative Designs/Branding, I am pretty busy,” said Barber, a member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated and co-host of My SiSStas Keeper  online radio show.

A resident of nearby DeSoto, Texas, Barber is a member of Jubilee Community Church in DeSoto, which is pastored by Gregory Drake.


SIGNS OF THINGS TO COME 

Having begun writing the first installment of her book in 2018, Barber has announced that “Journey Of A Sista On The Downlow Volume 2” is presently in the works and is slated to be published in March 2020.

Dallas’ Brandie Pyburn-Smith fulfilling her divine purpose as the face of Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc.


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3 KJV)


PEACE OF GOD 

DESTINY STEPS — Brandie Pyburn-Smith routinely goes to great lengths to exemplify that she has a heart for people. Consider, for instance, her unyielding agape love she steadfastly exhibits as the director and chief executive officer of B.O.S.S. Marketing and Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc., which is her Dallas/Fort Worth-area non-profit organization she’s responsible for establishing.

DALLAS — If there’s one thing that virtually no one can debate when it comes to Brandie Pyburn-Smith, it is this:

She routinely goes to great lengths to exemplify that she has a heart for people.
Consider, for instance, Pyburn-Smith’s unyielding agape love she steadfastly exhibits as the director and chief executive officer of B.O.S.S. Marketing and Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc., which is her Dallas/Fort Worth-area non-profit organization she’s responsible for establishing.
Having discovered her keen passion for speaking before the masses during her youth, Pyburn-Smith’s notable objective through her organization is centered largely on her gifts as a Christian Motivational International Speaker.
In addition, Pyburn-Smith’s organization customarily helps market women, most notably through empowerment whereby they are afforded the golden opportunity to create platforms, as well as showcase their business and products.

Also, Pyburn-Smith’s venture has become a fixture, in large part because of its REAL TALK LIVE, an empowerment session in its group that addresses real life issues, business-related subjects and, most of all, the goodness of God.

“The goal is to eventually open several homes to house women and children and assist them with education, financial stability, credit repair, and show these women and children that God loves them and so do we,” Pyburn-Smith, 41, told Making Headline News this week.

Pyburn-Smith’s endeavor began as a Facebook group approximately eight months, a venture that was comprised of 54 members. The organization has since expanded to 474 individuals, or as Pyburn-Smith acknowledges, “God-fearing, business-minded women that I absolutely adore and love.”

A native of Dallas who works primarily as an Operation Analyst, Pyburn-Smith doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s been blessed mightily to function in her element, largely because God’s has strategically set her aside for His use.

“God doesn’t call the qualified. He qualifies the called,” Pyburn-Smith says without hesitation. “My life has been nothing but a ministry, a gift of many talents, and God has guided me to a path that gives Him the glory, but provides me with His purpose.”

The mere fact that God has singled out Pyburn-Smith to oversee the day-to-day operations of a flourishing nonprofit organization is something about which she doesn’t take lightly.


“I was chosen for the path I’m on and I’m so propelled to finish my God given race until the end,” Pyburn-Smith said. “God’s opening doors that no man can shut. I started this organization and business from a vision God gave me in church one Sunday. He said, t’s your race; run it well.’”


For starters, Pyburn-Smith’s endeavor began as a Facebook group approximately eight months, a venture that was comprised of 54 members. The organization has since expanded to 474 individuals, or as Pyburn-Smith acknowledges, “God-fearing, business-minded women that I absolutely adore and love.”

“We empower each other,” Pyburn-Smith said. “We are growing into the knowledge of God with each other and we are learning to support one another.”


NEW BOOK ON THE MARKET

A 1997 graduate of Dallas’ Lobias Murray Christian Academy, Pyburn-Smith is currently enrolled at Independence University, which based out of Salt Lake City, where she’s pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Business Management with emphasis in Human Resource.

In 2005,  Pyburn-Smith earned a trade license as a nail tech from State Beauty College. She later would become a Medical Administrative Assistant graduate at nearby Everest College in 2013.

Pyburn-Smith has announced the forthcoming release of her first book entitled, The Mess That Gifted The Messenger, which is scheduled to debut on January 31.

As for her thriving, progressive business venture, Pyburn-Smith credits her family, friends, fellow church members, and the Sisterhood Group STGP, Inc. for having inspired her to move forward diligently with her God-mandated assignment.

Now she convinced that Sisterhood Through God’s Plan, Inc.’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“Yes, 2020 is going to be an epic year for us,” Pyburn-Smith said. “We have a fashion show were planning and a women’s conference. I have also been invited to speak at several events.”

Interestingly, Pyburn-Smith has announced the forthcoming release of her first book entitled, The Mess That Gifted The Messenger, which is scheduled to debut on January 31.

Having discovered her keen passion for speaking before the masses during her youth, Pyburn-Smith’s notable objective through her organization is centered largely on her gifts as a Christian Motivational International Speaker.

“This book is an awesome must read,” said Pyburn-Smith, whose written work is available as a hard copy or eBook for $10. “I feel it is necessary (to esteem other daily) because healing is a part of my life and I wouldn’t be where I am now if God hadn’t healed me,” Pyburn-Smith  added. “Women need to know daily that no matter what we endure, healing is for our soul and we are born to live until we die. I must encourage others daily, because it’s not needed, it’s necessary. My positive words can save a life or millions.”

After all, if there’s one thing that virtually no one can debate when it comes to Pyburn-Smith, it is this:

She routinely goes to great lengths to exemplify that she has a heart for people.

Los Angeles writer Derrick L. Faggétt makes his authorship debut in Soul Talk Volume 3


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NKJV)


MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR 

HE’S ALL IN — A native of Chicago, Derrick Faggétt has joined a gallery of writers to collectively assemble “Soul Talk Volume 3: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go and Let God,” an intriguing and spiritually-empowering anthology that is spearheaded by longtime philanthropist and multi-bestselling author Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

DALLAS — Fortunately for Derrick L. Faggétt, the golden opportunity had suddenly arisen.

And, for a man who’s proven to be after God’s own heart, he did the most logical thing he sensed was in his best interest.
He seized the opportunity to put his immeasurable gifts on display.
“I started my own business in the year of 2015,” Faggétt, during an interview this week from Los Angeles with Making Headline News, said, recalling the awe-inspiring developments that led to his having delved off into the world of authorship. “And as part of building a rapport with my clientele, I would share my testimony — a.k.a. my why I decided to do something different…outside the box.
“As I begin to share my story around the country, I would always get various individuals expressing that I should share my story with a broader audience and or consider writing a book,” Faggétt continued.
And the rest, as they say, was history.

It wasn’t long thereafter that Faggétt’s authorship debut would ultimately come full circle.

A native of Chicago, Faggétt has joined a gallery of writers to collectively assemble “Soul Talk Volume 3: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go and Let God,” an intriguing and spiritually-empowering anthology that is spearheaded by longtime philanthropist and multi-bestselling author Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

As Faggétt explained, he initially was introduced to the concept of becoming a co-author for Soul Talk Volume 3 approximately two years.

For what it’s worth, the opportunistic Faggétt is giddy he subsequently obeyed the Voice of God, a demonstration of faith that has given way to his having addressed in Soul Talk Volume 3 the subject entitled, “The Male-Man.”

“I guess in a nutshell, that was God’s way of telling me that I had permission, but it simmered for years until 2018,” Faggétt said. “The opportunity came knocking and I answered.”

For what it’s worth, the opportunistic Faggétt is giddy of that fact that he subsequently obeyed the Voice of God, a demonstration of faith that has given way to his having addressed in Soul Talk Volume 3 the subject entitled, “The Male-Man.”


“My message is that fatherlessness is a symptom of a bigger problem,” said Faggétt, who needed only three months to assemble his chapter. “This problem is their falling away from God‘s principles for the family and (fail to understand) what it means to be a kingdom man, or how to take steps to get the family back in God’s order.”


Interestingly, while Faggétt was raised without a father in the home, he still appropriately hints that notion shouldn’t merely deter the male to assume his rightful place in the home and in the Body of Christ.

“I would have to say the issue of growing up without my father,” said Faggétt, explaining why he elected to address such a pertinent subject. “(I wrote it because of) how many other men that I’ve had the opportunity to speak with who’ve been effected by fatherlessness, but don’t understand how to correct it generationally. Since most men are not at a healthy place to discuss it openly, I felt in some ways that since I went through it as well, someone needed to do something before it gets worse.”

The feedback, as expected, has been mostly favorable, Faggétt said.

“I have received very positive feedback — from men and women,” he said. “For example, (they’ve said) this is something that we need and that ‘We need more men like you who will speak the truth or admit there is a problem.’”

“As I begin to share my story around the country, I would always get various individuals expressing that I should share my story with a broader audience and or consider writing a book,” Faggétt said.

Now that Faggétt’s authorship tenure is underway, he has announced that he’s open to participate in any type of courses and or curriculum, most notably sessions that would center on helping or aiding in the behavioral changes for men.

“(We all can) agree that this conversation needs to take place,” said Faggétt, who recently established an organization known as Men of Fortitude. “Men have reached out asking how to get started or what can I do to get better or what steps can (they) take now.”

Aside from his newly-established organization, Faggétt has a few scheduled podcasts over the next few months during which he will promote his latest endeavor as an author.

“My plan is to acquire more speaking engagements as it pertains to helping men understand how to be men through Men and Fathers 101,” Faggétt said.


AUTHOR AMELIA E. FAGGETT

Faggétt’s wife, Amelia E. Faggétt, is also an accomplished writer, whose book that’s geared toward individuals with special needs will be officially released this during Super Bowl weekend in Miami.

Faggétt’s wife, Amelia E. Faggétt, is also an accomplished writer, one whose book that’s geared toward individuals with special needs will be officially released this during Super Bowl weekend in Miami.

“Parenting a special needs child is definitely a challenge, which is part of my blessing,” said Amelia Faggétt, who spent better part of a decade to assemble her book entitled, Life With A Special Needs Child. “Not many can do it. I didn’t think I could. I’ve had good days as well as bad days, but more smiles than tears throughout my journey with my daughter, Melany.

“She’s had more surgeries before age three than most would have in a lifetime. If I can help the next parent or soon to be parents who has a special needs circumstance navigate through it better, then I’ve served my purpose. These are just a couple of reasons why I wrote this book and why it’s so important to share.”

Georgia writer Dr. Angela Kinnel takes another monumental stride as co-author for Soul Talk Volume 3


But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES 

KINGDOM IMPACT — A native of Dawson, Georgia who currently resides in nearby Hampton, Dr. Angela Kinnel’s chapter in “Soul Talk Volume 3: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go and Let God” comes approximately six months after she appeared in Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — For Dr. Angela Kinnel, forming a kingdom connection with multi-bestselling author and philanthropist Cheryl Polote-Williamson for a third time is what she appropriately describes as a “no-brainer.”

“I had such a wonderful experience as a co-author,” said Kinnel, referring to her valiant contributions to Soul Talk: Volume 2, which is spearheaded by Polote-Williamson. “So it was a no brainer when she presented the opportunity to be a part of Volume 3.”
As usual, Kinnel has been nothing short of remarkable in her latest authorship endeavor.
The Georgia-based author is responsible for having constructed the chapter entitled, “God’s Love: The Gift That Keeps on Giving,” which is her fifth published work to date.

The official launch and book signing of Soul Talk Volume 3 will take place in Dallas on February 15.

For Kinnel, it seemed she had little time to prepare for Soul Talk Volume 3 which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing in any way, shape or form.

If nothing else, she’d be the first to admit that she was very much up for the golden opportunity to put her immeasurable authorship gifts on display — once again.

“I began writing my chapter about a year ago,” Kinnel said of her contributions to her latest project. “I took my time with this, because I wanted to convey my message as clearly as possible.  It took a few weeks of prayer, meditation, and editing to finally finish it.”

Not to mention her steadfast act of obedience unto God.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — As usual, Kinnel has been nothing short of remarkable in her latest authorship endeavor.

“I’ve been called to minister to the body of Christ, and God has allowed me to do so through books,” said Kinnel, explaining how her latest co-authored project is aligns with the purpose for which God created her. “If what I’ve shared thus far touches at least one soul, then I’m walking in the purpose that God set forth for me.”

Kinnel, by all accounts, is no stranger to the authorship industry.

In 2016, she contributed to “Identity: Who Do You Think You Are?” That book is co-authored by Robert Johnson and is a collaboration that centered on our identity in Christ.

She then co-authored Soul Talk Volume 2: Soul-Stirring Stories of People Who Let Go And Let God in 2018, during which she had written about Stop Cheering & Get In the Game! “I discussed how I overcame depression and began to cheer for myself toward pursing my dreams,” Kinnel said.

Last year, Kinnel contributed to Rise, Pray & Slay: Strategies To Heal The Land, which is co-authored by Linda D. Lee. Having written about “From Fear to Faith,” Kinnel said: “I discussed how I overcame the fear of becoming who God created me to be.”

Then last summer, she Kinnel was one of 52 authors who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

Last summer, she Kinnel was one of 52 authors who collectively assembled “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

Kinnel’s chapter’s was entitled When A Parent Returns to God. “It’s a prayer that I prayed to God regarding the transition of my mother,” Kinnel recalled.

As for her latest written work, Kinnel emphasized she’s hopeful that her reading audience grasp a thorough understanding that God loves us with no conditions.


“He is for us and never against us,” Kinnel said. “As demonstrated in John 3:16, He loved us so much that He sacrificed His only Son that we might be saved. He thought we were to die for. There’s no greater love than that.”


Interestingly, Kinnel quickly acknowledged that there are “far too many Christians and nonbelievers” who are somewhat confused about how God feels about them, something she eloquently addresses in Soul Talk: Volume 3.

“Because of this, relationships with Him have become stagnant and crippled,” Kinnel explained. “After reading my chapter, I hope that clarity is manifested and relationships with God are renewed or established. I pray that every reader will take hold of the eight benefits I discuss that are available to us through God’s love.


GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

For Kinnel, it seemed she had little time to prepare for Soul Talk: Volume 3 which, much to her delight, wasn’t a bad thing in any way, shape or form.

“Once you truly understand who you are to Him and in Him, your mindset will change and you will love yourself and others as He loves you.”

Just like her kingdom connection to Polote-Williamson, such a notion, too, can be appropriately described as a no-brainer.

Mississippi author Nika Collins’ new book producing unprecedented sales since its release


Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:5 KJV)


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Water Valley — a rural Yalobusha County, Mississippi establishment of roughly 3,392 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Nika Collins is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Battle Of The Mind.”

DALLAS — What undoubtedly was one of the darkest, most tumultuous seasons of Nika Collins’ life, by all accounts, is what impressed it upon the heart of God to catapult her to divine purpose.

“God gave me a vision to start writing this book in 2017 after my mom was suddenly struck with a massive stroke,” Collins told Making Headline News this week during an interview from Mississippi. “And I was able to witness God work miracle.”
Much to her delight, it was a God-orchestrated miracle for the ages, an awe-inspiring development that had ultimately given way to Collins taking massive leap of faith, a step that had come wrapped up in a spiritually-empowering book.

A book that’s also available for purchase at Barnes And Noble and Book A Million online, Collins is impressed by the early success of her first published document.

A remarkably compelling written work that was recently released on Collins’ birthday on January 10, “Battle Of The Mind” is a spiritually-gut-checking book that figures to leave readers completely in awe of God’s majestic glory and favor and mercy.

“Some days, the will to continue fighting this battle may feel impossible,” said a spokesperson for Collins’ book at Amazom.com. “There are countless circumstances that leave us feeling powerless. But in those very moments, what seems like a hindrance or threat to our lives, may be the platform God uses for His Glory to be displayed through us.”

“I give raw testimonies of how I was able to make it through by trusting God’s promises,” said Collins, adding that her husband, Malcolm, and a host of friends and well-wishers are amongst those who have aided her mightily during her authorship journey. “I also talk about my experiences with deciding to see a therapist this year…one of the best choices I could have ever made.”

Every now and then, it seems, when our faith is being and tried and tested, we tend to indirectly call out God, the Giver of life, our Waymaker, our Present Help in times of trouble, if you will.

“As we stumble along, we often wonder, ‘Where is God?’ an Amazon spokesperson said while disclosing a detailed synopsis of Collins’ book. “Why is He allowing me to go through this? We feel stuck and broken. The reality is, however, that God does His best work in our darkness, and whatever journey God begins in your life and heart, He promises to finish in His perfect timing.”

Without question, Collins reiterated that other books are forthcoming, much sooner than later.

In a nutshell, Collins stressed that she felt compelled to assemble “Battle Of The Mind,” in large part because of her own once downtrodden experiences with depression anxiety.

But God…

“After dealing with that, I was faced with so many other different obstacles and the enemy tried to attack my mind as I continued to fight all these different battles that were coming up against me,” Collins explained.

A book that is comprised of 74 pages in length, Collins said the feedback since her project’s release has been nothing short of remarkable.

Yep. That’s just like God, His usual reliable Self, strategically stepping in and providing for us a way of escape.

Without question, Collins reiterated that other books are forthcoming, much sooner than later.

Because, after all, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that if God has brought her out before, His track record is such that He will undoubtedly allow history to repeat itself.

“This book is just one of many,” Collins said without hesitation. “I Thank God for all the feedback that I have gotten.”


HE MAKES ALL THINGS NEW 

“After dealing with that, I was faced with so many other different obstacles and the enemy tried to attack my mind as I continued to fight all these different battles that were coming up against me,” Collins explained.

A book that’s also available for purchase at Barnes And Noble and Book A Million online, Collins is impressed by the early success of her first published document.

“In just a week, I sold 50 copies,” Collins said. I know that this book is going to bless many souls.”

Yep. That’s just like God, His usual reliable Self, strategically stepping in and providing for us a way of escape.

Accomplished Texas Businessman/Minister Andrew Landry named Making Headline News 2019 Man of The Year


A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1 KJV)


GOD’S GAME CHANGER 

 

MAKING A DIFFERENCE — Much to delight, Andrew Landry’s valiant efforts and contributions through his ministry are amongst the reasons he has been named Making Headline News Man of The Year for 2019, edging out three other nominees across the country who were considered for this honor by the publication’s editorial staff.

It doesn’t take much to get Katrina Landry to strike up a spirited conversation about her husband, Andrew Landry.

A couple who are closing in on seven years of marriage on January 19, amongst the things about which Katrina finds intriguing when it comes her beloved companion is how he steadfastly goes and above and beyond to exemplify having a heart for people.
“The sky is the limit because, he’s got a helper’s heart,” Katrina said of husband’s tireless contributions to his community and the Body of Christ. “He continues to find ways to help others financially and mentally, and offer support day in and day out. His heart holds the sky’s limits, because it is so open.”
It is, by all accounts, because of Andrew’s servant’s heart, coupled with his keen compassion for people from various walks of life that have greatly enabled him to thrive in his strategic ministry as the founder and chief executive officer of the Where Men Hurt organization.

MORE ON WHERE MEN HURT: https://wheremenhurt.org/

Landry’s Where Men Hurt ministry has become a fixture in the Humble, Texas community, mostly notably because of its periodic meetings at Master Barbers Headquarters, located 1502 East First Street, during which men assemble to discuss a variety of pertinent subjects and real life issues.

For Andrew, his latest achievement, his wife emphasized, is a true testament of his kingdom-based work ethic.

Landry’s Where Men Hurt ministry has become a fixture in the Humble, Texas community, mostly notably because of its periodic meetings at Master Barbers Headquarters, located 1502 East First Street, during which men assemble to discuss a variety of pertinent subjects and real life issues.

Landry, in fact, was responsible for hosting his inaugural Where Men Hurt Conference, a one-day, spiritual empowerment assembly was centered largely on equipping the total man to become all that God has predestined him to be.

A couple who are closing in on seven years of marriage on January 19, amongst the things about which Katrina finds intriguing about her beloved companion is how he steadfastly goes and above and beyond to exemplify having a heart for people.

A power-packed, informative men’s conference that is powered by Mr. Landry Enterprises, the Where Men Hurt event was highlighted by all-star lineup of a half dozen speakers. The conference also offered panel discussions and included food trucks and vendor booths.


“Exceptionally amazing,” Landry said after learning of being named MHN Man of The Year. “In complete awe of the vision that God has for me to carry out. Other than God, my wife, Katrina Landry, has been by my side for each speaking engagements, book tour events, and countless late nights waiting for me to finish the task that come with this calling.”


Katrina, in fact, doesn’t shy away from the notion that her husband’s immeasurable gifts to the Body of Christ are second to none, something he admittedly doesn’t take lightly.

“He has been very instrumental in Where Men Hurt,” said Katrina, the owner and chief executive officer of Renewed Hope Counseling Center in Humble. “He has a heart to help others and this organization is a great avenue for him to do so. He sacrifices time, sleep, and money into not just the organization, but to the men who are involved in it.”

Interestingly, Andrew is widely known as an accomplished author.

A devout man a faith and minister, Landry witnessed the release of his second book in 2019.

His latest written work, “After the Violation: A Comprehensive Guide to Healing After Being Sexually Mishandled,” is a spiritually-empowering project that was officially released during his recent conference.

A book that is comprised of 77 pages in length, Landry’s “After the Violation: A Comprehensive Guide to Healing After Being Sexually Mishandled” is widely regarded as a guide for healing, particularly for those who have been sexually mishandled, according to a detailed synopsis of this Humble, Texas-based author’s book at Amazon.com.

Landry’s latest written work was released approximately 17 months after having witnessed his authorship debut come full circle with the release of “Overcoming The Addiction That No One Has.”

“I have far exceeded any idea of where I thought my life would be,” said Landry, trying his best to assess his achievements in 2019. “There are so many moving pieces when one is trying to build great foundational groundwork to something bigger than themselves. I have been blessed to have the right people in the right places at the right time to move forward with anticipation of the wonderful things God will allow to happen with this vision He has given me.”

By and large, it is in large part because of Landry’s awe-inspiring vision as a beloved ambassador for Christ that his wife emphasized the importance of giving him his flowers while he yet is blessed with breath in his body.

Katrina, in fact, doesn’t shy away from the notion that her husband’s immeasurable gifts to the Body of Christ are second to none, something he admittedly doesn’t take lightly.

“I am so happy and proud of him for all of his accomplishments,” Katrina Landry said in paying homage to her husband. “It is an honor and a joy to watch him work and I am grateful that he is given his roses while he is here. I honor him, his work, and his heart. May this award reminds him of how great he is and encourage him that he is affecting lives.”

With God, his Helper, steering the way.

Talk about a memorable 2019.

BUY SHIRLEY’S BOOK: Mid-South author Shirley Hentz’s spiritually-empowering book is as good as advertised


For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 KJV)


FAITH ON TRIAL 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Coffeeville, Mississippi, Shirley Hentz is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Unless You Believe: 20 Days Of Devotion, Faith, And Proclamation.”

Are you presently enduring unfavorable situations and circumstances that is trying and testing your faith?

Well, Shirley Hentz’s got good news for you.
“My test of faith can be a testimony to someone else that going through different seasons of life to keep believing and keep the faith you can achieve obstacles,” Hentz says without hesitation.
So can yours, as Hentz vividly explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News.
A native of Coffeeville, Mississippi, Hentz is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Unless You Believe: 20 Days Of Devotion, Faith, And Proclamation.”
A spiritually-empowering written work Hentz began composing sometime in 2015, this Mid-South-area Christian-based author needed somewhere in the neighborhood of three years to assemble a book that is shaping up to become a fixture in the Body of Christ.

BUY AUTHOR HENTZ’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Unless-You-Believe-Devotion-Proclamation/dp/1532398360

A book that is comprised of 119 pages in length, Hentz’s “Unless You Believe: 20 Days Of Devotion, Faith, And Proclamation” was officially released on December 10, 2018.

To her credit, it has been as good as advertised in its brief time on the market.

For Hentz, a devout woman of faith, “Unless You Believe: 20 Days Of Devotion, Faith, And Proclamation” is testament of her immeasurable faith walk, coupled with the divine purpose for which she was created.

More than anything, she acknowledged, her newly-assembled book has emerged as a motivational tool for individuals from various walks of life, notably those who are in dire need some spiritual relief.

With No. 2 currently in the works, Hentz said the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her first book has been overwhelmingly favorable, as expected.

“Trouble was never design to last forever,” Hentz said while referring to a few Biblical passages to support her notions. “It may be cloudy now, but the sun is going to shine again. Every day, God gives us his daily bread. Every day, He gives us a measure of grace. God said His grace is sufficient and that weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. Weeping must go. Weeping and joy can not stay in the same house. We must stay focused. Unless you believe that faith is the substance of things hope for and the evidence of things not seen…unless you believe that you are more than a conqueror if when it do not look like it…we walk by faith and not by sight.”


Moreover, as mentioned to Making Headline News, Hentz emphasized, by all accounts, that it is very seldom that we are afforded the chance to delay — or restrict — the storms that God allows to erupt in our lives.

As mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazom.com, Hentz emphasized, by all accounts, that it is very seldom that we are given the chance to stop and process, especially what this author refers to as the “many ups and downs.”

With No. 2 currently in the works, Hentz said the feedback she’s garnered since the release of her first book has been overwhelmingly favorable, as expected.

“The feedback has been, ‘Wow! God Wow! To God be the glory! Amazing! Thank you Father for grace and mercy,” Hentz said. “It has been a life changing experience for some and for others. It has enhanced their walk with Christ in life to be authentic.”

All of which practically sums up why Hentz doesn’t shy away from the notion that, well, when all else fails, we must seek and consult God Almighty for a divine sense of direction.

A book that is comprised of 119 pages in length, Hentz’s “Unless You Believe: 20 Days Of Devotion, Faith, And Proclamation” was officially released on December 10, 2018.

“(We must) proclaim the Word of God to the world,” Hentz says without hesitation.

Fortunately for Hentz, her book has given way to her having acquired a great deal of exposure through the media, a trend that included appearances on White Dove WKRA 92.7 FM “The Change” in nearby Holly Springs, Mississippi.

She’s also appeared on Memphis’ WMCTV 5’s “Bluff City Life” which is hosted by Janeen Gordon, as well as The Inspirational Channel 24, the Tammie Tubbs Show on Christian Television Network Channel 49 in nearby Tupelo, and Memphis WDIA 1070 AM’s The Beverly Johnson Show.

A spiritually-empowering written work Hentz began composing sometime in 2015, this Mid-South-area Christian-based author needed somewhere in the neighborhood of three years to assemble a book that is shaping up to become a fixture in the Body of Christ.

Also, Hentz spoke at the Book Club of Oxford, as well as Bring It To The Table, and she’s hosted a book signing at Water Valley’s Fountain Square.

“I want more of God and less of me,” Hentz said. “I want to live intentional on purpose in faith, love, and expectancy.”

All the while standing on the Word of God in the process.

“My test of faith can be a testimony to someone else that going through different seasons of life to keep believing and keep the faith you can achieve obstacles,” Hentz says without hesitation.

Connecticut businesswoman Tamara Mitchell-Davis announces the forthcoming release of an anthology


I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. (Psalm 139:14 NASB)


MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT 

DESTINY STEPS — During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Connecticut businesswoman Tamara Mitchell-Davis announced a rather intriguing and awe-inspiring project that will center largely on an anthology.

Much to her delight, God is steadfastly using Tamara Mitchell-Davis for His glory.

Consider, for instance, the immeasurable strides she’s making as the CEO of TM Davis Enterprise LLC.
During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Mitchell-Davis announced a rather intriguing and awe-inspiring project that will center largely on an anthology.
As Mitchell-Davis explained, the forthcoming anthology will feature an assortment of stories involving 12 women, most notably married individuals.
“(These) stories (will address) resiliency, specifically to self, marriage and business,” said Mitchell-Davis, adding that roughly a half dozen slots are available for the anthology and that those who are interested, can acquire additional information by contacting her via email at tmdavis860@gmail.com.

MORE ON TAMARA MITCHELL-DAVIS: https://www.theceowife.com/

“I am a wife, mom, and business owner myself,” Mitchell-Davis continued. “As a wife, I have my own goals and dreams to pursue and I don’t have to put them on hold or dismiss them, because of life challenges and obstacles. I want other women to be inspired by the stories they read and hear.  We are more alike than we are different.”

With only a few vacancies to fill for anthology, Mitchell-Davis said the projected release date for her upcoming project is May 2020.

“The only requirement is to write one chapter to the book and the rest is handled,” Mitchell-Davis said. “You can be recognized as a published author and build from it just by contributing your own story to the book collaboration project.”

Based in Hartford, Connecticut, Mitchell-Davis has become a fixture in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, considering she has emerged as an award-winning and best-selling writer, all the while functioning as a full-time administrator and adjunct business professor.

The Chief Executive Officer for the Writers Academy for Women, Mitchell-Davis in 2017 witnessed her authorship tenure come full circle, courtesy of her first written work entitled, “GoalGetter: Strategies To Overcome Life’s Challenges.”

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.

Interestingly, she’s also the mastermind behind “Goodbye Fear, Hello Destiny,” a spiritually-empowering and life-changing project that made its ceremonious release in 2018 with the foreword written by Joelle Murchison, the CEO of ExecMommy Group.

When asked what inspired her to jumpstart such a project, Mitchell-Davis referenced whom she described as women who admittedly have “lost themselves” while fulfilling their daily obligations as a mother, wife and entrepreneur.

“They made everything else a priority except themselves,” Mitchell-Davis said.

Now, she said, the time has come that these devout women of faith abstain from allowing fear to hold them back for walking in the purpose for which God created them.

As Mitchell-Davis explained, the forthcoming anthology will feature an assortment of stories involving 12 women, most notably married individuals.

“There are so many opportunities available in this industry as a published author,” Mitchell-Davis said. “With my book collaboration project, in addition to being recognized as a published author, you will receive free training and have access to industry experts. It really is a win-win situation.”


Having recently served as a panelist during a local New Year’s Day women’s empowerment brunch, Mitchell-Davis figures to engage in what is shaping up to be a busy and fruitful first quarter of 2020.

Mitchell-Davis announced that plans are in the works to host a virtual summit and a local workshop at a date that has yet to be decided.

“The book release’s tentative date is May 2020, and I have more in store for that to include the book release celebration,” Mitchell-Davis said. “I am excited and looking forward to the journey and the experience.  This is only the beginning.”

Based in Hartford, Connecticut, Mitchell-Davis has become a fixture in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship, considering she has emerged as an award-winning and best-selling writer, all the while functioning as a full-time administrator and adjunct business professor.

Mid-South businesswoman Melinda Walker’s fortifying her God-mandated vision through ‘Comfortable In One’s Own Skin’


Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 NIV)


GOD’S GAME CHANGER 

CHILL MODE — For Melinda Walker, a Mid-South-area businesswoman who resides in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, she deems it essential to customarily issue what she describes as a notable reminder, particularly through her endeavor as the Project Supervisor and CEO of Comfortable In One’s Own Skin.

Melinda Walker would like to issue a rather direct message to other women.

“I want women not to be afraid to tell their truth and stand in it,” Walker, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining in detail her latest business venture. “We can’t heal what we won’t confront.”
For Walker, a Mid-South-area businesswoman who resides in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, she deems it essential to customarily issue what she describes as a notable reminder, particularly through her endeavor as the Project Supervisor and CEO of Comfortable In One’s Own Skin.
A venture she established a little more than three years ago, Walker’s Comfortable In One’s Own Skin is centered largely on her wealth of experience as a ghost writer, one whose strategic emphasis includes — but isn’t limited to — compiling anthologies and giving women opportunities to tell their truths and stand in it.
“I also ghost write for those individuals who have a story, but need vision and personality added to bring life to their vision as the vision pusher,” Walker explained. “I write complete books for those who need full assistance. I also coach those who may need assistance with titles, brand names, and anything concerning writing.”

A licensed evangelist, Walker’s stellar gifts as a writer has given way to her having evolved as an accomplished author.

A native of Bogalusa, Louisiana, Walker is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Right When The Caterpillar Thought Her Life Was Over, She Became A Butterfly.”

A book that is comprised of 235 pages and is nearly two months removed from its ceremoniously release, Walker’s “Right When The Caterpillar Thought Her Life Was Over, She Became A Butterfly” recalls specifically how godly women often experience situations and hardships in life, causing them to go into their shell and run from life, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

Interestingly, Walker’s “Right When The Caterpillar Thought Her Life Was Over, She Became A Butterfly” is an intriguing anthology that is comprised of more than 10 women, each of whom have deemed it essential to join forces and share of their respective testimonies, many of which were mired by heartache, pain, abuse, rejection, abandonment, not to mention the appropriate steps in how they were blessed to overcome them.

“When I started compiling the anthologies, the opportunity presented itself to help those women who have powerful testimonies but didn’t know how to put their thoughts on paper,” said Walker, explaining the divine purpose for which her business venture was established. “This gave me a passion to ghost write for them. I was presented with an entire book and that propelled me into completing an entire writing project in less than 90 days. This was the start of my passion to ghost write for others.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Much to her delight, Walker has gone to great lengths to enhance and promote Comfortable In One’s Own Skin, a trend that has greatly fueled the desire of other women of empowerment to follow suit, thus buy into her awe-inspiring vision.


“I like the idea of me doing what I love, fulfilling my God given purpose and getting paid to do it,” said Walker, whose venture accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 65. “I’ve been able to travel to California, Florida, Texas and Georgia. My heart desire is to take my passion internationally one day.”


Given the immeasurable strides she made since the inception of Comfortable In One’s Own Skin, it’s safe to assume she’s well on her way to savoring global success through her thriving and progressive business venture.

“To be honest, I absolutely love Oprah,” Walker said. “She inspired me years ago how she would talk about tough issues on her show, but she allowed people to get free from the pain of their past as well as herself.”

Interestingly, Walker’s spiritual father, Pastor Jessie Holloway, has played an integral role in her success, she acknowledged.

“He has taught me how to go through many valleys of death but he taught me to fear no evil because God was with me,” Walker said of Holloway. “He raised me to be transparent and always (helped me to realize that) God will turn my mess into a message one day. He always told me, ‘Lynn, God will use everything you’ve been through for purpose and for his glory.’ He said as God bless you, be a blessing. That’s what my mission is…to be a blessing to others.”

To her distinctly unique credit, she’s doing just that.

LeBron James on Mavs star Luka Dončić: ‘He’s a great, young talent; I love his game’

STAR WATCH 

GREAT COMPANY — Three-time NBA champion and four-time league MVP LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has been especially complementary of Luka Dončić, the Mavericks’ prized swingman, who’s been as good as advertised since he made the transition from the EuroLeague to U. S. soil following the 2018 campaign. (Gary A. Vasquez, USA TODAY)

DALLAS — Ever since he’s made his NBA coming out party last season, Dallas Mavericks star Luka Dončić has been the beneficiary of a slew of accolades and figurative pats on the back.

Especially from arguably the best basketball player on the planet.
Three-time NBA champion and four-time league MVP LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers has been especially complementary of Dončić, the Mavericks’ prized swingman, who’s been as good as advertised since he made the transition from the EuroLeague to U. S. soil following the 2018 campaign.
Having been dubbed the best 20-year-old player in NBA history behind James — who entered the NBA at 18 years of age — all Dončić has done since being anointed NBA Rookie of The Year last season is pick up where he left off.
PLAYOFF PREVIEW? Heading into Friday night’s nationally-televised showdown against the first place Lakers at the American Airlines Center (8:30 CST on ESPN) in what appears to be a potential playoff preview, the Mavericks (23-14) are currently sixth in the Western Conference standings, having amassed eight more wins than last season after 27 games.. (Getty Images Photo)

The 6-foot-7 Slovenian’s 29.6 points per game is third best in the NBA behind Houston’s James Harden (38.5) and Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, the league’s reigning MVP.

Add to the fact that Dončić’s display undoubtedly has given way to the Mavs having become one of the NBA’s biggest surprises this season, and it’s no wonder the greatest player of this generation deems it essential to often give props to a youngster, who’s already assumed the superstar label, a feat he’s emphatically cemented less than one year removed from the ceremonious retirement of Mavs great Dirk Nowitzki.

Much to the delight of Dončić, James is certainly a fan of the NBA sophomore sensation.

“He’s a great, young talent,” James told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I love his game. He has the ability to not only create shots for himself, but I love the fact that he can get great looks for his team.”

It is, by all accounts, because of Dončić’s remarkable play, coupled with last year’s midseason acquisition of Kristaps Porziņģis, that Dallas will be vying for a playoff spot between now and season’s end.

Heading into Friday night’s nationally-televised showdown against the first place Lakers at the American Airlines Center (8:45 CST on ESPN) in what appears to be a potential playoff preview, the Mavericks (23-14) are currently sixth in the Western Conference standings, having amassed eight more wins than last season after 27 games.

MAKING NOISE — Having been dubbed the best 20-year-old player in NBA history behind James — who entered the NBA at 18 years of age — all Dončić has done since being anointed NBA Rookie of The Year last season is pick up where he left off.

“They’re a competitive team with KP (Kristaps Porziņģis) and Luka with (Maxi) Kleber, (Dorian) Finney-Smith, and Seth (Curry) and those guys they have around him,” James said of a Dallas team that has dropped two of three meetings with the Lakers this season. “They play fast. They shoot a lot of threes and push the tempo to keep you off balance. (Mavs coach Rick) Carlisle’s team has always been well-coached.”

Said fellow Lakers superstar Anthony Davis in assessing the resurgence a Mavs team that’s looking to snap a four-year playoff drought: “They’re a very good team. They’re a playoff team. Their cornerstone is KP and Luka with a great supporting cast around them.”

While James has praised the way the Mavs’ leader has gone about adjusting to life as one of the NBA’s young bright stars, Dončić, on the other hand, has always been equally fond of James, a 16-year veteran and 14-time All-Star.

During a game in L. A. last November, Dončić was spotted waiting outside of the Lakers’ locker room, where he received an autographed jersey signed by James.

One of James’ representatives emerged from the locker room with a signed No. 23 jersey that read “To: Luka D, God Bless and continue to #StriveForGreatness.”

All things considered, striving for greatness seems to have become a personal mantra, of sorts, for Dončić, who unquestionably has made his presence felt since he’s entered the NBA ranks.

Just like James, his biggest mentor, had done a little more than a decade-and-a-half ago as an NBA newcomer.

“That’s what I like about him,” said James, who has gone on record recently and said Dončić is the kind of player with whom he’d like to play. “He plays the game the right way.”
