Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC is nothing short of brilliant

WOMAN ON THE MOVE

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Simona Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.

DALLAS — To her distinctly unique credit, Simona Badger can be appropriately described as an empowerment extradionaire.

Consider, for instance, how Badger had gone about establishing S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services, LLC, a credible, progressive Newark, New Jersey-based venture that customarily provides what is known as culturally sensitive, trauma focused psychotherapy, and professional education to the communities she serves.
“I’ve always known as a child that I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives,” Badger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly propelled her for her business venture.
“Growing up, I was interested in social issues such as inequality, women’s rights, and racism. Starting my own business gave me the freedom to serve my community on a deeper level than if I was working for someone. A lot of the things that I accomplished in my life — degrees, marriage, children, business and finding my purpose — are all things I wanted to achieve before I turned 40.”

Because of the purpose for which God has created her, Badger has accomplished that and more — this for a thriving, 39-year-old businesswoman.

Armed with over a decade of experience in her chosen industry — most notably through treating survivors of domestic and sexual violence — Badger’s mission is centered largely on (but isn’t limited to) educating and supporting teens and adults about unhealthy relationships.

Interestingly, her upcoming book will provide a more in-depth and strategic emphasis on assisting teens and young adults, particularly with regards to healing from unhealthy relationships.

“Simona believes that her gift is to educate and support as many lives plagued by inter-generational and trans- generational trauma, and she believes her work would be incomplete unless she is able to give back to her native country (Jamaica) through her volunteering work,” said a spokesperson for Badger’s S Badger Empowerment and Consulting Services LLC.

Much to her delight, Badger will be afforded the golden opportunity to share with the masses her longstanding mission through her organization when she host the Changing The Language of Men’s Health Conference on June 22, at Newark’s Source of Knowledge Bookstore, located at 867 Broad Street.

A conference that will be highlighted by what organizers have dubbed, “Real Talk With A Dynamic Panel Of Men,” tickets for this event can be purchased by calling 973.392.9473 or by paying via PayPal at: http://paypal.me/simonabadger.

“The reason why I’m hosting this conference and focusing on men’s mental health is because for far too long, men have suffered in silence, which has negatively impacted families and communities,” Badger said. “I grew up seeing how toxic masculinity affected males in my own family of origin. I remember seeing the males in my family drink away their problems, gamble away their money and date multiple women at a time due to being stressed.”

For what it’s worth, she credits her immeasurable experiences as a foster care caseworker and New York City Administration for Children Services clinical consultant through The Child Center of New York for her notable accomplishments of becoming what she refers to as a “momprenuer,” as well as a psychotherapist, educator, and advocate.

SAVE THE DATE

Her empowerment and consulting firm, in fact, provides holistic mental health treatment, as well as prevention and education services to women, men, families, children and adolescents, and under-served populations affected by health disparities, trauma, self-identity issues and poverty.

Widely regarded as a compassionate, professional and culturally competent therapist, who provides what it known as a “strengths based” perspective to therapy, Badger strongly believes that in working together through a trusting collaborative relationship, one can gain support to alleviate emotional pain and begin the journey of self-acceptance.

To her credit, her extensive experience includes — but isn’t limited to — helping clients with traumatic experiences, divorce, relationship problems, sleep problems, grief, work-related stress, family stress, and immigration concerns, among others.

A native of Jamaica (West Indies), Badger Simona Badger attended Ferncourt High School in her native establishment before reuniting with her parents in the United States at 15 years of age.

Consequently, she attended Harry S. Truman High in the Bronx, New York, where and graduated in 1998.


MAKING IMMEASURABLE STRIDES

For what it’s worth, Badger credits her immeasurable experiences as a foster care caseworker and New York City Administration for Children Services clinical consultant through The Child Center of New York for her notable accomplishments of becoming what she refers to as a “momprenuer,” as well as a psychotherapist, educator, and advocate.

Badger advanced her education at Herbert H. Lehman College, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Sociology (she minored in Black Studies) in 2003.

Then in 2008, she earned a Master of Social Work Degree from Fordham University. During her graduate studies, she majored in Clinical social Work with a certification in Law and Social Work Practice.

Interestingly, in 2013, Badger completed a post-graduate program at New Jersey Institute for Psychoanalysis-Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Certificate Program in nearby Teaneck.

“I love empowering people to reach their full potential,” Badger said. “We are all resilient, but that’s easily forgotten when we are going through hard times.”

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Crystal N. Tolbert ‘Walking In Greatness’ — literally and figuratively


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


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

ON A KINGDOM MISSION — As Crystal N. Tolbert explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer create a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

DALLAS — As far as the above Biblical passage goes, say this about Crystal Nicole Tolbert:

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
In that distinctly unique order.
Consider, for instance, how Tolbert, a progressive, flourishing and devout woman of faith, had go about assuming her strategic, God-mandated assignment as the founder of Walking In Greatness Ministries, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based, faith-oriented ministry and social organization.
As Tolbert, 39, explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

“Our desire is to help woman find their value, purpose, joy, independence, and the true meaning of happiness to prepare them for their destiny to fully walk in greatness,” said Tolbert, providing a detailed synopsis of her ministry.

And then there is Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny,” a mentorship program that essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

“This (program) provides a Biblical, yet practical approach to living your life in purpose, on purpose,” Tolbert said.

An endeavor that accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 60, Tolbert credits what she deems a “kingdom creative for people who are ready to live a kingdom purpose life” as arguably the biggest reason she’s been blessed to oversee a Christian-based business for such a time as now.


“(I’m) continually gaining obtaining and acquiring the knowledge and skills required to have as a kingdom entrepreneur with ministry in the market place,” said Tolbert, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly enabled her to assemble a notable business. “I called it ‘Exit To The Platform.’”


As one of God’s “leading jewels and mentors” Tolbert has been afforded the luxury of promoting Walking in Greatness Ministries in a variety of establishments around the country, most notably Los Angeles, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, among others.

“I really want to be able to impact and bring forth what God has place in them,” Tolbert, a Lufkin, Texas native said explaining the mission of her ministry. “It is so important to me that Jewels of Destiny are left with something of real value. I was called to be a dream changer because I have the gift to make dreams reality for the kingdom.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

More than anything, though, Tolbert’s kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas. Pictured with Tolbert is her husband, Kenneth Tolbert.

A Lufkin High School and Angelina College alum, Tolbert is widely known as a devoted wife, mother, author, prophetic scribe, and speaker.

More than anything, though, her kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas.

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

An upcoming speaking engagement in St Thomas at the Emerald Beach Resort, a Prophetic Scribe Workshop on August 3 in Los Angeles, and an appearance during the Joyful Moments Prayer Brunch on August 24 at Red Oak Municipal Center.

Armed with more than 15 years of experience in her selected line of work, Tolbert doesn’t shy away from the notion that God’s Hands have been on her life for as long as she can recall.

All of which essentially sums up why she sets about her work vigorously and her arms are strong for her tasks.

DESTINY STEPS — Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny” is mentorship program that’s essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

In that distinctly unique order.

“I want (people) to be able to be so inspired from what I share that they go back to their own various lives and put forth the action to make their dreams their own reality,” Tolbert said before offering what she labels kingdom tools to live by.

“Seek, write, and believe,” she continued. “You must seek the Lord first. Write the vision. Believe the Vision.”

To her credit, she’s doing that, with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1 KJV)


MIGHTY MEN OF VALOR 

DALLAS — Andrew J. Landry is all about unity, especially when it comes to men who are committed to advancing God’s kingdom.

That is amongst the reasons this accomplished Houston-area minister has gone to great lengths to host his inaugural Where Men Hurt Conference, a one-day, spiritual empowerment assembly that’s centered largely on equipping the total man to become all that God has predestined him to be.
An event that will take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST, Landry’s Where Men Hurt Conference will unfold on August 3 at  Lighthouse Church, located at 6650 Rankin Road in Humble, Texas.

This conference also offers panel discussions and will include food trucks and vendor booths, said organizers for this event.

Having committed his life to Christ sometime in 2007, Landry said the primary purpose for the Where Men Hurt Conference is to strategically provide the importance of education, particularly with regards to finance, mental health, and personal development, all the while providing a safe environment and support system for men to share their challenges, experiences, and healing strategies.

Anthony Landry

“The mission of ‘Where Men Hurt’ is to build stronger communities, families, and futures by providing men necessary resources, support, and tools to successfully cope with emotions, expectations, and life disappointments,” Landry told Making Headline News this week.

Having authored the book entitled, “Overcoming The Addiction That No One Has” — an awe-inspiring, informative written document that officially made its presence in March 2018 — Landry emphasized this conference is especially essential for advancing the kingdom for such a vital time as now.

Dr. Cordell Nkwokeji, MD

“It will provide men with tools and resources to become whole and complete,” said Landry, a native of Raywood, Texas, who is a member of Lighthouse Church that’s Pastored by Keion Henderson. “It will enhance relationships and create bonds, so men can hold each other accountable and encourage each other without fear of judgment.”

As expected, Landry has already fielding some favorable feedback for hosting this conference.

Pastor Ronald Eagleton

“(Many people have said it’s) much needed…(there’s much) excitement, (and they are) looking forward to attending,” Landry, who holds a degree in pastoral counseling, said. “(They are looking forward to these) dynamic group of speakers.”

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

Alabama preacher Tamika D. Pharr goes from ‘thug girl’ lifestyle to selling out solely to Jesus Christ


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


SOLD OUT ON JESUS 

BEAUTY FOR ASHES — Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Tamika D. Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

DALLAS — Tamika D. Pharr could be appropriately described as a number of things.

For starters, she’s an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

She’s a proud mother of two, a grandmother of three, and a mother-in-“love” to whom she often describes as a “beautiful young lady.”
More than anything, though, Pharr would be the first to tell you that she’s devout woman of faith, one’s who deems it essential to go to great lengths to proclaim the matchless Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Never mind that this Mobile, Alabama native was raised in what the urban community has dubbed the School of Hard Knocks.
“I had a rough upbringing. But God,” Pharr, 43, told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “(I’ve) seen a lot, heard a lot, done a lot. But God.”

MORE ON TABERNACLE OF PRAISE: https://www.facebook.com/Tabernacle-of-Praise-Church-of-Mobile-Alabama-Richmond-CA-845016335556713/

And because Pharr, a resourceful, resilient, spiritually-empowering minister, doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is, by all accounts, the Focal Point of her life, it’s safe to assume that life as she knows it is, well, far more superior than her rough upbringing.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of a credible business, Pharr is Mobile-area minister as the beloved Co-Pastor of Tabernacle of Praise Church, a tradition-rich, historic institution that also has a campus in Richmond, California.

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Pharr is an accomplished businesswoman as a resourceful sales consultant with Paparazzi, a globally-acclaimed venture that’s widely known for offering consumers fashion-forward jewelry and product parties.

For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was taught Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Only now, she’s serving and paying homage to Him from a much larger stage.

“My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

Widely regarded as a Christian-centered ministry that accompanied by the slogan, “Changing The World With The Word,” Tabernacle of Praise is pastored by Apostle Timothy D. Monigan.

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.


“I have my grandmother Pruitt, (who was) an elder of love and understanding at Primitive Baptist Church until her health change and God called her home,” Pharr recalled. “My grandmother, Pauline James, plays a great big part in my life. She also helped raise me. My great grandmother, Mary Pharr, is the mother of St. Luke Church, where she’s been a member since before I was born. She is now 100 years old and her health has changed. My great aunt, Pastor Shirley Edwards and I, are the newest pastors in the family.”


For Pharr, that she was steadfastly brought up in the church and raised in an environment where she customarily was Biblical principles has proven beneficial to her, considering even to this day, she’s still very much on fire for Almighty God.

Sadly as it is to say, Pharr’s rise to becoming a full-time minister hasn’t been fully accepted by some whom she sensed would offer valiant support.

“Well, since I became pastor, a lot of family and friends have fell off, but I heard the Lord say that He will add unto me,” Pharr said without hesitation. “I saw God positioning me for ministry back in 2008 after I lost my 10-week-old baby.”

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing an unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

“I heard the Lord say He has need of me,” Pharr said in the wake of her dreaded miscarriage.

WE ARE FAMILY — “My family taught me that when you learn better, you do better,” said Pharr, recalling vividly the memorable developments of her childhood. “That took a while to set in on me, because I was a thug girl, but God turned me into a church girl.”

To her credit, this young preacher hasn’t looked back since.

If nothing else, she’s diligently drawn closer and closer to God which, in dramatic sequence of events, is a far cry from the proverbial thug girl life.

Having officially accepted her calling to preach the Gospel in 2011 — “I heard God call my name, using a familiar voice,” she recalls — Pharr initially sensed that it was actually her unborn baby who was calling her name.

Oddly as it might seem, she eventually heard her name called three times.

One for the Father.

One for the Son.

One for the Holy Ghost.

In that order.

As it turned out, Pharr’s losing unborn child essentially served a defining moment, of sorts, for this beloved, bigger-than-life thug girl-turned-woman of the cloth.

And if God said it, that settles it.

“My testimony is when God say go, obey His voice,” Pharr said. “I told God I didn’t want to do this. First of all, I thought I wasn’t worthy enough. Then I still wanted to sit at the bar and stay in the club.”

Still, in spite of her rebelliousness, amongst the things that Pharr had ultimately discovered is that if God has a dire need of you, He’ll find His way to the bar and club.

In no particularly order.

“One night, as I was sitting in the club, I heard a Voice so clear and I started looking around for someone,” Pharr explained. “I heard Him again, so I got up and ran out the club like I just seen a ghost.”

In essence, that’s what actually happened.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

As Pharr explained, it took a relatively solid supporting cast of godly women who collectively helped steer her from the School of Hard Knocks as a “thug girl” to, well, Sunday School — pretty much on the regular.

Only this time, it was the Holy Ghost.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I have been going since then,” Pharr, who plans to compose a book that depicts her life, said of having found her niche in ministry. “He called me out the club to the church, from a thug girl to a church girl.”

Which goes to show that today, she could be appropriately described as a number of things.

A beloved spokesperson for Christ topping the list.

Prophetess Deborah Allen’s “Fierce” E-book moving ever so closely to making Amazon’s Bestseller list


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


DESTINY STEPS 

For an accomplished, Christian-based author, Prophetess Deborah Allen is moving ever so closely to a pretty commendable milestone.

The mastermind behind the book entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018, Allen on Wednesday announced that the E-book version is just under 800 sales away from witnessing her featured project be thrust on the Amazon Bestseller list.

For Allen, the newfound development surrounding her relatively new book had given way to tears of joy and all smiles just before midday Wednesday.
“It’s simply mind-boggling to be so close to making bestseller for Amazon,” Allen told Making Headline News. “It’s my dream that ‘Fierce’ makes a difference and help people to understand, accept, change, and move forward in their lives.”

GOD’S PLAN — The mastermind behind the book entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018, Prophetess Deborah Allen on Wednesday announced that the E-book version is just under 800 sales away from witnessing her featured project be thrust on the Amazon Bestseller list.

Given the overwhelming response to Allen’s book, it’s safe to assume that “Fierce” is well on its way to taking its rightful place as bestseller written document.

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen last week told MHN that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of lying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

Interesting, Allen’s “Fierce” is widely regarded as what this writer describes as a life and world changing book.

“It’s destined and written to change people destiny,” said Allen, whose book was assembled during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

“Fierce is written to encourage, strengthen, show you that you can be strong and hold on. Fierceness — or strength — is needed in everyday life.”

Much to her delight, it is a spiritually-empowering book that is steadily catching the Body of Christ by storm for such a pivotal time as now.

So much, in fact, that Allen on Wednesday just couldn’t hold in that which God is strategically allowing to unfold in her life.

“My mind is in amazement and awe,” Allen said of the awe-inspiring developments surrounding her book.

Allen is on the brink of achieving yet another remarkable in what has shaped up to be one memorable ministerial tenure for this devout woman of faith.

As this preacher-turned-businesswoman-turned-author explained, she initially saw all of this coming to fruition, courtesy of a recent dream.

“I saw the dream of it happening and now to be so close is just phenomenal,” Allen said. “’Fierce’ has become a movement in my life and the life of others all around me. It has compelled us all to be fierce, strong, and not allow anything to stop us.”

For what it’s worth, Allen deemed it essential to pay homage to God for providing her once with a glimpse of His glory amid a disheartening situation.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

For Allen, the newfound development surrounding her relatively new book had given way to tears of joy and all smiles just before midday Wednesday.

“I’m a woman with a husband, battling stage four cancer,” Allen said. “I’ve been through molestation, an abusive first marriage, (I’ve been a) battered wife, a teenage mother, and countless of things, yet God has birthed His purpose out of my life for His divine glory. We are built to last and we are fierce.”

And for these notable reasons, Allen is on the brink of achieving yet another remarkable in what has shaped up to be one memorable ministerial tenure for this devout woman of faith.

Fierce faith, that is.

“I’m only 750 E-books away from making the goal of bestseller. I am determined.” Allen said.

All the while displaying her immeasurable, bigger-than-life smile as a result.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS — Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of Metiamay Visions, her successful graphic design venture, Tara Brown is an accomplished author, who witnessed the much-anticipated release of “How To Make It,” an inspiring and empowering book she wrote after outlasting what this Covington, Kentucky-area writer describes as a season of “shame and embarrassment.”

Tara Brown couldn’t wait to hasten to her Facebook page just after 7 o’clock EST Tuesday morning.

Said Brown in a post before her 800-plus social media followers:

After having failed for what I feel like a million times, I finally discovered success. I refused to give up and started my company with only a few hundred to my name. Determined to win, I quit my job and walked away from a nine-year career in healthcare. I was tired of not being happy and working hard doing something I only did for money. I was tired of the being the good girl, following the path my parents and family set before me.

For Brown, she’s certainly has appropriately devised ways to heed the immeasurable, life-changing advice of her parents.

Aside from overseeing the day-to-day operations of Metiamay Visions, her successful graphic design venture, Brown is an accomplished author, who witnessed the much-anticipated release of “How To Make It,” an inspiring and empowering book she wrote after outlasting what this Covington, Kentucky-area writer describes as a season of “shame and embarrassment.”

“I wrote a book last year, but it was (it was) horrible, and I felt ashamed and embarrassed and didn’t really want to write anymore, because of how it all fell apart,” Brown told Making Headline News this week. “God has been calling me to write again, but this time to focus on my journey, not those who hurt me like I wrote about in my first book.”

Once Brown’s “How To Make It” had come full circle, that is when she began to come to a realization that her notable endeavor as an author was all a part of God’s plans for her life for quite some time.

Fortunately for this Detroit native, it’s a good thing she listened diligently to the Voice of God.

“I began writing this book late last year after having failed and I stopped, because I wasn’t sure if I should continue,” Brown said. “I decided to not give up and finished it…most recently in early May of this year right before my 30th birthday as a present to myself.”

Now that her an awe-inspiring work has been ceremoniously released, Brown is especially hopeful that her new book will evolve as a lifetime gift, of sorts, to those who sense they could benefit from it.

“My divine message for this book is sharing my journey and how I discovered success through failed attempts until I got it right,” Brown explained. “I like to say I developed a blue print to my field of work — media design and broadcasting. I’ve been having a lot of success with it. I do plan to write again but not for a while.”


HITTING THE ROAD 

Brown’s book tour commences this month in Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. From there it’s on to Illinois and then to Alabama for the tour’s finale.

In the meantime, while Brown admittedly will take a much-needed hiatus from writing, she said her primary focus is selling and promoting her new book.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “My divine message for this book is sharing my journey and how I discovered success through failed attempts until I got it right,” Brown explained. “I like to say I developed a blue print to my field of work — media design and broadcasting. I’ve been having a lot of success with it. I do plan to write again but not for a while.”

“Right now, I’m focusing on my tour, speaking about my book, my company, and helping others to find their passion in life,” Brown said. “I am now offering coaching courses and classes that are jam-packed with other guest speakers, tons of information, music and entertainment and skill builder exercises to motivate and encourage people to get started on their dreams and create their paths to success.

Brown’s book tour commences this month in Ohio, Kentucky, and Michigan. From there it’s on to Illinois and then to Alabama for the tour’s finale.

For what it’s worth, Brown is thoroughly convinced that her book is a God-manifested testament of the array of turmoil and hardships she managed to overcome during the course of her life.

Now that her an awe-inspiring work has been ceremoniously released, Brown is especially hopeful that her new book will evolve as a lifetime gift, of sorts, to those who sense they could benefit from it.

“I’ve survived a life or death accident with a semi-truck and almost lost my life and, most recently, me and my family went through two tornadoes and I got right back to my mission,” Brown said. “Storms are going to happen and life is going to keep moving.

“Pray over yourself every day for protection, because whenever those bad times happen, you want to be ready and protected. Be so bold in your belief for God that even a semi-truck and tornado can’t wipe you out, and you will find your success in this life.”

Spoken like a true warrior, one who’s yet walking in victory in process.

Houston author Philandis Stovall’s recalls loving memory of her son, who wrote a book before his untimely death


If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10 KJV)


VICTORIOUS REGARDLESS 

MUSTARDSEED FAITH — Houston author Philandis Stovall wrote the emotionally-driven, tear-jerking written work entitled, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Amid Adversity, an awe-inspiring project that garnered a wave of media coverage since its much-anticipated release in nearly two years ago.

DALLAS — To his credit, little “Ziggy” reached his destiny before God ceremoniously called him home.

“I received the confirmation for writing my book when I was in the hospital with my son while he was having his bone marrow transplantation,” Philandis Philly Stovall told Making Headline News during a weekend interview, recalling the memorable developments that unfolded in July 2017, during which her son, Fre’Derick Leontez Young Redd III, was hospitalized at Texas Children’s Hospital after being diagnosed with cancer.
The book to which Stovall is alluding is her emotionally-driven, tear-jerking written work entitled, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Amid Adversity, an awe-inspiring project that garnered a wave of media coverage since its much-anticipated release in nearly two years ago.
A book that Stovall began composing sometime in September 2017 and needed approximately two weeks to complete, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity” is a story of one mom’s journey from despair to triumph, according to detailed breakdown by Google Books.

A book that Stovall began composing sometime in September 2017 and needed approximately two weeks to complete, “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity” is a story of one mom’s journey from despair to triumph, according to detailed breakdown by Google Books.

In 2012, for instance, Stovall’s then four-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Consequently, she found herself in what she described as “a zone,” whereby all she wanted was peace and quiet.

In  no particular order.

“I was searching for sense in a situation that made no sense to me,” Stovall writes.

STAR POWER — Interestingly and much to Stovall’s delight, her book — as well as her son’s written work — has caught the attention of an array of athletes, including the Rice University football program the Houston Texans, as well as former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal.

Interestingly, alone with her wave of thoughts and emotions, Stovall desperately wanted to “wake up” from what sense was a nightmare.

Still, the Greenville, Mississippi native demonstrated enough faith to stay awake, particularly in the spirit, considering she had come to grips with the notion that what was unfolding in her young life wasn’t merely a dream.

“This was reality and she was forced with the choice of retreating into the devastation or fighting her way through the storm,” said a Google Books spokesperson for Stovall’s “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity.’” “Finding herself on an unexpected and unwelcome path, the young mother could feel a rebirth happening. With each day and event, she found herself growing stronger and stronger.”

In 2012, for instance, Stovall’s then four-year-old son was diagnosed with cancer. Consequently, she found herself in what she described as “a zone,” where all she wanted was peace and quiet.

Even amid her son’s unlikely diagnosis — he wasn’t born with cancer – Stovall didn’t merely have time to cope; rather, she simply had to learn to deal with it, she’s explained time and again.

Regardless, because of her spiritually resourcefulness, Stovall’s story essentially is one whereby she had to learn of rely on her faith — the kind of faith that had ultimately given way to her exemplifying hope, particularly when that about which she encountered seemed hopeless.

But God…


“I knew from the beginning of our journey we had a purpose and reason for being assigned to go through cancer treatment,” said Stovall, when asked what was the single, most underlying reason she chose to produce “Even Through the Storm: A Mom’s Story of Faith Admid Adversity.” “My handsome son wasn’t born with cancer. He was born a completely healthy baby boy.”


Still, before his health had begun to decline, Stovall miraculously aided her son mightily to fulfill his God-manifested purpose, considering “Ziggy” surprisingly wrote his very own book while in the hospital before he passed away. The title: “The Mystery of the Missing Ring,” which was published earlier this year.

The title: “The Mystery of the Missing Ring,” which was published earlier this year.

Talk about a mother and child collectively devising ways to weather arguably the toughest of adversity.

“I have gotten overwhelmingly amazing reviews and feedback on my memoir, including five-star ratings,” Stovall said. “I was told prophetically I have a bestselling book and that’s what I believe.”

Interestingly and much to Stovall’s delight, her book — as well as her son’s written work — has caught the attention of an array of athletes, including the Rice University football program the Houston Texans, as well as former NBA superstar Shaquille O’Neal.

Because of her spiritually resourcefulness, Stovall’s story essentially is one whereby she had to learn of rely on her faith — the kind of faith that had ultimately given way to her exemplifying hope, particularly when that about which she encountered seemed hopeless.

“This memoir shares a major part of my life and how I handled it being a single mother of two children with one being diagnosed with cancer,” said Stovall, adding “more personal book projects” are forthcoming much sooner than later. “I have been able to share my strengths, weaknesses, and faith in God words, no matter what the world says. I have been able to start and continue one of my passions, which is helping others with my nonprofit organization efforts.”

Surely, because of keen perseverance, “Ziggy” is peeping through the clouds above and giving his mom’s a well-deserved thumbs up.

With a $500 price tag, Maryland author Prophetess Dr. Anita Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is a ‘must buy!’


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)


WALKING IN HER DESTINY 

ALL GOD’S DOING — A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Prophetess Dr. Anita G. Naves recalls like yesterday how it all went down, remembers vividly how her employer had unceremoniously given her the dreaded pink slip.

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Naves is referencing is “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man,” a basic spiritual guide to understanding the divine gift of the ministry of prophecy, its power, its purpose, and its prophets.

THE PRICE IS RIGHT

WORTH THE MONEY — Naves goes to great lengths to share her experience of being awaken into a heavenly trance, where she was specifically instructed to listen, take notes, and to write this book on behalf of God’s heart desire, to let the world know that He is the Ministry Gift of prophecy. Moreover, Naves — as mandated by God — raises awareness and provides sound biblical credibility to the workings and execution of God’s plans for His ministry gift of prophecy and His prophets. The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves’ project is widely regarded as history-making one, considering it is believed to be that no book in American history has sold for $500 multiple times over.

Labeled a “miracle book,” Naves’ written work may be purchased for a lesser amount from Authorhouse, she said. But those who have purchased the book directly from the author at $500 have reported what she describes as amazing “financial and healing breakthroughs” in areas of their lives, where stagnation had set in.
Also, Talent Scots for New Readers International along with MGM studios have sought Naves for a movie screen adaptation deal. This author, in fact, was told that her book rated highly for best new author for screen adaptation offer.

The cost for this awe-inspiring and life-changing book: $500.

Nope, this is no typo, mind you.

Rather, for Naves, the unorthodox price tag for this book was mandated by God Almighty Himself.

And if God said it, that settles it.

How else to explain why much to Naves’ delight, more than a dozen consumers have already invested in “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” which, to her credit, undoubtedly is a sign of things to come for a book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact.


“Everything in my life at that time seemed to be going wrong,” said Naves, recalling the assortment of hardships she endured before God had strategically assigned her to compose her new book. “But it was in that moment God started to tell me that He would reframe my spiritual beliefs with really knowing His word and understanding Bible and really knowing His voice.”


Consequently, it wasn’t long thereafter that Naves began to establish more of a close-knit relationship with God during her season in the wilderness.

“The Holy Spirit led me to a Christian church Bible college in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, where I begin to learn and study the Bible on another level,” Naves explained. “While at the same time, God was speaking to me about the gift of prophecy within me, telling me how He would perfect it all the more, so I could teach truth to others in a more perfected way.”

For Naves, such teachings arose, courtesy of her newly-produced book which, truth be told, is worth the $500 price of admission.


MAKING GLOBAL HEADLINES 

“God gave me the vision to write the book in 2010 after I was laid off from the Prince George’s County Public School system as a result of a reduction in force,” Naves, a Maryland-based author and businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week.

“The vision for book started to emerge in within me like a roast cooking in a crock pot to perfection over several years with God adding the special ingredients,” said Naves, who needed somewhere in the neighborhood of six years to complete her book.

Ironically, her vision for assembling “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” arose amid an emotionally-driven fantasy, this devout woman of faith, recalls.

“I felt compelled to write the book after I had a dream that I went to heaven and was sitting before God’s Face, listening to Him tell me about How He wanted the truth to be known about the spirit gift of prophecy and His real prophets in the earth versus the fake deceiving ones,” Naves explained. “In the dream, I was surrounded by pure bright lights…the brightest I have never seen before in earth.

“These dreams came at several times of the early morning until I finally got up and started journaling the information that had been downloaded in my spirit. God told in the dream that I could be trusted to speak from truth…not from man’s perspective, but from His heart’s perspective, backing it up with solid Bible scripture.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

A little less than one year removed from his its much-anticipated release, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” has caught the attention of a host of celebs, most notably renowned Gospel recording artist Pastor Shirley Caesar.

Also, Naves has announced that other written works are on the horizon and are expected to be released as early as next year.

“I am currently working on putting the finishing touches on them,” said Naves, referring to her forthcoming project entitled, “PARTY With Me,” which is a motivational journal of self-acceptance through God’s love.

ALL SMILES NOW — Officially released on August 17, 2018, Naves’ “Pardon Me! Prophecy Is Not Of Man” is deemed an inspiring tribute to what this Christian-based writer labels “the divine and empowering supernatural” ministry gift of prophecy,” according to a detail introduction of this book by Author House.

Naves other upcoming book is “Pssst…Follow The Clues,” which will address how to discern possible relationship incompatibilities by paying attention to the clues.

“God keeps surprising me with signs, wonders, and miracles, even in the midst of trials,” Naves said. “I knew the book was powerful when I got fired from my job in 2009.

“It feels like I’m living a dream,” Naves continued.

Surely, with God, all things are possible, as this brilliantly gifted author has discovered.

Boston author Pamela Reece’s “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” deemed a much-anticipated ‘must read’


If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR ADVERSITY

TURNING POINT — To her credit, Pamela Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

Regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things had become, say this about Pamela Reece:

She was determined not to faint (or give up) in her day (present time) of adversity.
“On various occasions, I’d be in the company of friends, sharing portions of my story, growing up in a dysfunctional setting and the adversities I had to overcome,” Reece, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that fueled her desire to compose her latest book.
“Initially, the conversations were just a means to socialize and share my testimony of God’s faithfulness to me through the years,” Reece continued. “I would go from one experience to the next as my friends listened intently…so much that they strongly suggested I write a book.  I quickly dismissed the idea of writing, because it seemed so daunting.”
All things considered, amongst the things that Reece had ultimately discovered was that God had other ideas, particularly with her regards to her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

To her credit, Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

“Whenever God sends a deliverer, the opposition will wage war so that the deliverer doesn’t walk in his or her purpose,” said Reece, a devout woman of faith whom, given her array of hardships, is sounding as confident as she’s ever been in quite some time. “The opposition knows the Deliverer if given free course, will powerfully impact lives and generations to come.  So adversity was sent to smother my identity and purpose in the earth, yet every trial was sent to shape my personality but only for the better.  What seemed unfair, unjust and horrific, God has turned it for my good.”

Especially through “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” this spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity that emerged in her life to challenge her faith.

Still, come hell or high water, this Christian-based author didn’t merely allow her faith to waver.

If nothing, she deemed it essential to become even more intentional, particularly from a spiritually perspective, considering she steadfastly made it point to draw closer to God in the process.

THE PROVERBS 24:10 FACTOR — “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity

Talk about demonstrating enough spiritual maturity by simply embracing adversity.


“Without the adversity, I would not have the advantage today of sharing this interview with the world,” Reece said. “Statistics tell us that eight out of 10 rapes are committed by someone the victim knows.  Every nine minutes, child protective service agencies find evidence of sexual abuse.”


Interesting, Reece disclosed some other notable facts to better support her purpose for assembling “I Chose The Good: Turning  Adversity Into Advantage.”

A native of Boston, Reece’s “I Chose the Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is her personal memoir that details in length her growing up in a home of severe dysfunctionality and adversity.  This book, in fact, goes into great length of how she was exposed to abandonment, alcoholism, verbal abuse, and sexual molestation.

“I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is Reece’s first published book and, earlier this week, she told Making Headline News that after the forthcoming re-launch of “I Chose the Good,” more literary works will surface in the pipeline before year’s end.

“Today and the future are mine to dream, describe, and define,” Reece said. “I am particularly passionate about those who are a little older like myself, who know that they’re made for more and have an insatiable desire to pursue a lifelong dream and touch the world.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that — regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things might seem.

St. Louis author Prophetess Deborah Allen displaying unshakable faith through her book ‘Fierce’


But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)


FIERCE KIND OF FAITH

BUT GOD!!! A St. Louis-area Pastor, Prophetess Deborah Allen’s “Fierce” was released amid what was seemingly a trying season in the life of this devout woman of faith. Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

DALLAS — The enemy tried all he could to toss shade in her direction.

Still, Prophetess Deborah Allen was determined to stand toe-to-toe and outlast the adversary the best was she knew how — with the written word of God which, to her credit, had come wrapped up in an awe-inspiring book.
“God first gave me the vision for this book as I was driving home the end of December 2016,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Allen is alluding is her relatively new project entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018.

BUY PROPHETESS ALLEN’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Fierce-Prophetess-Deborah-Allen/dp/1642991902

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

“However, we learned he had stage four cancer and it had been growing inside his body undetected for about seven years,” Prophetess Allen recalled. “This was a complete shock and stage four chronic lymphocytic leukemia. As I was driving home, I was talking to God about how hard my life seemed to be, that it had been nothing but a battle. God showed me that from the beginning He was with me.”


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

Indeed He was — and still is.

How else to explain why “Fierce” has been dubbed a “powerful, spirit-filled book” since its much-anticipated a little more than a year ago?

“The Lord breathed upon this book and filled it with a fresh wind,” said a spokesperson for Allen’s “Fierce” in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com. “Fierce was a God-inspired book as it was being written. God’s yoke-destroying anointing was loosed as this book was being penned. God’s spirit and anointing also flows as you are reading this book. Fierce prepares, instructs, and pushes the believer to put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand. Stand in the Lord and be fierce.”

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

“He blessed me to have the gift of healing in my hands,” Allen said. “God has sustained my husband and prayer has kept him. This is the season for God’s people to walk fiercely in him.”

Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

In addition, she serves as Executive Director the L.A.M. Ministries Inc. nonprofit organization, has been married to Bishop Allen for more than 22 years, and is the mother of six children.

In addition, she serves as Executive Director the L.A.M. Ministries Inc. nonprofit organization, has been married to Bishop Allen for more than 22 years, and is the mother of six children.

Widely known also as a millionaire childcare coach, Prophetess Allen is an accomplished entrepreneur, who is the director of Little Lights Childcare and Learning Center, a St. Louis-area facility that has been in operation for 10 years.

As for “Fierce,” Prophetess Allen is appreciative of the notion that this book has opened “so many doors that I could never imagine,” she said without hesitation.


“This book has opened global doors for me,” said Prophetess Allen, alluding to her Fierce TV Show and Fierce Radio. “I have been featured internationally, because of this book. My God…who would have known that ‘Fierce’ would become such a movement in my life and the lives of many others everywhere? I’m simply amazed.”


As she should, especially considering aside from her husband’s physical challenges, Prophetess Allen can testify of the fact that God has blessed her to survive her very own season in the wilderness.

SEASON THE REBIRTH — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

“I’ve been through molestation, an abusive first marriage, I was a battered wife, teenage mother, and countless things, yet God has birthed His purpose out of my life for His divine glory,” Prophetess said. “As a leader, I want people to know that you can live, grow, and build, despite your life’s circumstances. Jesus is able to heal, deliver, and sustain us during every season of our lives and we are fierce in Him. My book is a testimony of strength, endurance, and encouragement through the Lord.”
