Arkansas businesswoman Mykia Brooks defies slew of odds, establishes a flourishing nonprofit organization


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


GOD’S BEACON OF LIGHT 

SHYNE ON ME — A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, Mykia Brooks is the founder and CEO of Shyne Her Light INC., her Mid-South-area non-profit organization that is centered largely on promoting unity within women empowerment.

To her distinctly unique credit, Mykia Brooks isn’t your typical 27-year-old.

Credit the fact that she’s diligently on fire for God as arguably the biggest reason why.
For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Brooks’ spirited and innovative disposition that have greatly enabled her to function mightily in her element, both as a Pastor and thriving entrepreneur — with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“What I like most is the women who are motivated by God (and that God is) using me to share my story or encourage them,” Brooks, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, when asked what she likes the most about her flourishing venture.

Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves.

Moreover, Brooks’ nonprofit organization has steadfastly set itself apart as an advocate for mental health, diabetes, and cancer, she told MHN.

That’s not all.

“Shyne Her Light INC. believes in helping, motivating, and inspiring every woman, no matter her race, background, or where she is from,” Brooks said. “(We strive to) soar into the greatness that she is born to be.”

RAPID GROWTH — Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves..

In addition, Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance.

Also, Shyne Her Light INC. hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but are seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become businesswomen.

“We look forward to the now and future to helping women no matter the situation or her past soar and evolve,” Brooks said.

By and large, Brooks’ Shyne Her Light INC. emerged amid humble beginnings. Amongst the reasons is that Brooks has surpassed things in her life, a trend that had ultimately given way to her ability to disconnect her from her purpose, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of her organization at https://www.shyneherlight.org/aboutceo.


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

But God…

“She has overcome her biggest giants and uses her pain and trauma to empower other women to soar,” said a spoke for Brooks Shyne Her Light INC.

Interestingly and much to her delight, Brooks’ credible organization was birthed primarily when God once commanded her “to keep shining your light,” she recalls.

She’s since taken her Father’s direct commands and made it apart of the divine purpose for which she was created.

Yep, that’s just like God, always providing for His children a much-needed way of escape.


“God gave me that when I was being mentally abused,” said Brooks, alluding to the startup of her nonprofit. “Every time I post about Shyne Her Light, I’m reminded how I beat depression, sickness, suicidal, overcame low self-esteem, and created a platform for women to soar and become whom God intended for them to be.”


Brooks is overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that all things have worked together for her good.

“I knew that I (was) created for a purpose even when I fought my toughest battles of dealing with diabetes and going through the process of almost losing my eyesight,” Brooks explained. “God’s hands were on me for such a time like this. I stand for every woman that have or is facing depression, molestation, hardship, and healing.”

WHAT ABOUT US? Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance. Also, Shyne Her Light hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but is seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become business women.

Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013.

She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

She will then pursue a Masters in Professional Counseling (Clinical Mental Health) and boasts lofty aspirations of becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

A progressive nonprofit organization that has enjoyed constant success since it went into full operations on September 2, 2019, Brooks’ itinerary includes hosting Shyne Her Light’s inaugural Meet & Greet Seminar on December 21 at 6:30 p.m. CST at Nehemiah’s Holy Temple, the church she pastors that’s located at 1400 Chickasawba in Blytheville.

An event that will be accompanied by the theme, “Sunshine Like A Boss, Act Like A Woman” and is free and open to the public, this meet and greet will feature a few speakers, many of whom will provide strategic insight on starting a business, personal finances, business finances, skin care, having a healthy lifestyle, everyday makeup for working women, digital marking, and “so much more,” Brooks said.


SEASON OF DESTINY STEPS 

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013. She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

Brooks’ Shyne HER Light was originally named “Shyne Your Light,” which was an encouragement name to which God had introduced her when she was praying on a way to escape a toxic relationship mired by mental abuse.

Interestingly, Brooks would subsequently change the name of her organization to “Shyne HER Light” once her empowerment group was officially established, in large part because she realized all through which she has gone was to help the next woman.

To her credit, she’s been nothing short of remarkable — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Amid broken marriage, Baltimore author Nova Walton-Marriott acquires God-manifested healing through new book


Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ. (GNT)


DIVINE PURPOSE AWAKENED 

For Nova Walton-Marriott, it is beyond her even to this day why it all went down the way it did.

It is beyond her why what was supposed to be a God-ordained til-death-do-us-part covenant had suddenly turned out to be arguably the darkest season of her life.
“My marriage broke up in a very extreme way,” Walton-Marriott told Making Headline News this week.
So extreme, in fact, that Walton-Marriott’s spouse literally had no chills, particularly as it pertained to how he had gone about dishonoring his holy pledge to his wife and, most importantly, to Almighty God.
“He sent me visual proof of adultery and cut off contact with me for a year,” Walton-Marriott recalled. “I was depressed, angry, hopeless, and could barely get my head off my pillow for about two years.  My entire life began to flash in front of my face.”

But God Whom, much to the delight of Walton-Marriott, had ultimately stepped in and provided her with some much-needed solace.

Her marriage all but a distant memory, Walton-Marriott sensed it was time she count her losses and strive to heal. And not just as a strategic way to keep busy. But rather heal, according to God’s perspective.

“I started doing inventory, thinking about all my mistakes and trauma, my family, my choices and started doing everything I could to heal to include writing in a journal,” Walton-Marriott said. “I wrote for about six months before I decided to turn my words into a book.”

As it turned out, amongst the things that Walton-Marriott had come to discover was that her quest to compose a book essentially spearheaded her ability to heal appropriately, never to do anything out of hurt.

A native of Queens, New York, Walton-Marriott is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “The Sleeper Has Awakened,” a project she commenced to assembling back in May.

Walton-Marriott announced this week that her new book is currently available for presale ordering and that hardcopies can be purchased by contacting her via email at leapsnbounds20@gmail.com.  The eBook version of Walton-Marriott’s  “The Sleeper Has Awakened” is also available for presale ordering through Amazon, she said.

For Walton-Marriott, she’s thoroughly convinced that amid her hurtful, heartbreaking marital dissolution, it was time to compose her book as a way to not just enabled her to heal, but to also help others who have endured a similar situation.


“I began writing the book about six months ago,” Walton-Marriott said. “After I had a rough draft, I sent it for editing to determine if I was moving in the right direction.  She gave me great feedback and told me I was going to help people with my story, that I would show the person crying themselves to sleep every night and that there is hope, but I needed to give more.”


Walton-Marriott then continued writing, she recalled. Interestingly, the more she wrote, the more God began to provide with more revelation.

The more revelation she acquired, the more she began to heal. The more she began to heal, the more she began to press and navigate toward the purpose for which she was created.

“I read it over and over again and the more I read, the more I remembered,” Walton-Marriott said. “I purged and purged and seven chapters, a foreword, introduction, survey, conclusion, photo journal and afterword later, I am done. I just completed the last piece.  I need to tweak a few things, but I anticipate sending the book for publishing by the end of the year.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience, Walton-Marriott emphasized it’s all about one’s ability to outlast the adversary.

“My message: If you confront your demons instead of suppressing and walking in shame and take responsibility for your part, you will learn a lot about yourself and begin to heal,” Walton-Marriott said. “There is power in truth.” 

Other books are certainly forthcoming, Walton-Marriott said.

“I have written a children’s book about autism,” she said. “It isn’t illustrated or published yet but, I hope to make that happen in the future.”

Interestingly, Walton-Marriott has announced the startup of her business venture, HIER SELF, LLC, which is a multi-functional business that will offer philanthropic efforts as well as motivational and development based components.

As for her newly-composed book, Walton-Marriott said: “The overall theme is (me) confronting myself and taking responsibility for the areas I could have done better.”

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

Upon her return home, Virginia entrepreneur Raye Elliott has been nothing short of remarkable


Then the LORD answered me and said: “Write the vision And make it plain on tablets, That he may run who reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2 NKJV)


RAYE OF VIRGINIA SUNSHINE 

SHE GOT THE RIGHT — Armed with more than 14 years of professional experience in her selected industry, Raye Elliott’s Right Array LLC specializes in entrepreneurship development, entity formations and compliance, minority certification preparation, government contracting preparation, as well as small business credit composition.

When Raye Elliott relocated back home, she essentially wasn’t the same person.

To her distinctly unique credit, in fact, she was armed with a remarkably compelling vision, one that would alter the overall landscape of her life.
“Well, I’ve always exuded confidence, been laser focused, concise and up for a challenge,” Elliott, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, explaining the awe-inspiring developments that gave way to her becoming a progressive businesswoman.
Interestingly, when Elliott returned to her native establishment of Buckingham, Virginia, she wasted little time making her presence felt as an apparent newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

MORE ON RAYE ELLIOTT’S VENTURE: http://www.rightarrayllc.com/

A company that accommodates individuals starting as early as 13 years of age and up, Right Array LLC is widely regarded as a development of an incubator program, particularly for youths in the state of Virginia. This program, Elliott acknowledged, is currently on the list of goals to achieve within the next 24 months.

“So when I recently made the decision to relocate back to my hometown, I quickly began to become aware of the high incarceration rate, how far behind the times the county and specific groups still are, the lack of entrepreneurship within the minority community, lack of community facilities such as daycares, recreational venues, access to information, little to no STEM/agricultural programs with minimal minority participation — if any — and the fact that the entire county is coded by the federal government as a HubZone,” Elliott explained.

“This is significant as it identifies Buckingham County as a historically underutilized business zone and economically disadvantaged area due to several factors such as a rural area or lack of or absence of broadband access,” Elliott continued. “With that information alone, I knew I needed to give back.”

Indeed she has, in large part considering Elliott’s quest to establish Right Array LLC, her Buckingham-based business consulting agency, had come full circle.

BROTHERLY LOVE — Elliott’s oldest brother, Augustus Harper, played arguably the biggest role — “whether he knows it or not,” she said — in her having maximized her fullest potential through entrepreneurship.

Armed with more than 14 years of professional experience in her selected industry, Right Array LLC specializes in entrepreneurship development, entity formations and compliance, minority certification preparation, government contracting preparation, as well as small business credit composition.

Since the startup of her credible endeavor, Elliott has had an immeasurable influential impact as a vibrant, resourceful businesswoman.

“I wanted to give back,” Elliott said. “I could give back and I definitely was going to pay it forward. To me, that meant coming full circle, beginning where my life all started…Buckingham County, Virginia, which is where I’m from, and I had the blueprint to lay the foundation and complete the implementation.”

A company that accommodates individuals starting as early as 13 years of age and up, Right Array LLC is widely regarded as a development of an incubator program, particularly for youths in the state of Virginia. This program, Elliott acknowledged, is currently on the list of goals to achieve within the next 24 months.


“Although I haven’t been blessed with my own kids yet, I realize that is so very important for the youth to understand the role they have today, tomorrow, and in society as a whole,” Elliott said. “The youths have a duty to themselves — their communities. And those are the ones that will determine what our economic systems resemble.”


As Elliott explained, paying special attention to minority startups and established businesses have become strategic focal points for her business.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A military veteran, Elliott is a graduate of Buckingham County High School. She holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Information Technology from Herzing College and an MBA from the University of Phoenix (Dumwoody, Georgia campus).  She also earned an MBA in Project Management from Keller Graduate School of Management.

“This business and its services targeted groups are those hungry for entrepreneurship, entity compliance, support and freedom,” Elliott said. “It’s also for those that are seeking assistance as a start-up or well established entity, but want to indulge in competing for government contracts, becoming minority certified to gain earmarked, and appropriated access to specific set-aside contracts, and especially those ready to start-up a new business and or expand using OPM — other people’s money — to elevate their business via building no personal guarantee and no personal credit check true business credit.”

IN HER OWN ZONE — Interestingly, when Elliott returned to her native establishment of Buckingham, Virginia, she wasted little time making her presence felt as an apparent newcomer to the world of entrepreneurship.

As Elliott explained, her wealth of experience as a Senior Contracting Official with the Georgia Department of Defense and as a former government contractor is what fueled her desire to establish her current venture.

“I knew the importance of entrepreneurship first hand and the inside and outside of the minority government contracting world like the back of my hand,” Elliott said. “My life’s journey has been one of many ups and downs, to include active duty military service, a great civilian service career, a highly publicized fall from grace, followed by federal incarceration to my journey from prison to prosperity! Not to mention my oldest brother”


MASSIVE DESTINY STEPS 

Since the startup of her credible endeavor, Elliott has had an immeasurable influential impact as a vibrant, resourceful businesswoman.

Elliott’s oldest brother, Augustus Harper, has played arguably the biggest role — “whether he knows it or not,” she said — in her having maximized her fullest potential through entrepreneurship.

“I’ve been doing business formations and consulting work for many, many years,” said Elliott, “but not as a complete entity per se, where I’m heavily marketed this.”

All the while having an immeasurable impact ever since she returned to the native roots.

Welcome home.

Indiana prep basketball player Jeremiah Blair boasts lofty dreams of playing at collegiate level

ON A MISSION

HOOP DREAMS — As Blooming (Indiana) High School North senior swingman Jeremiah Blair hinted this week during an interview with Making Headline News, every sign of progression essentially is yet another step in the right direction for a giftedly talented prep basketball player who boasts lofty aspirations of putting his skills on display at the collegiate level.

If you listen to Jeremiah Blair assess his junior campaign for Bloomington (Indiana) High School North, it would easy to tell that as far as he’s concerned, it’s the little things that matters the most.

In fact, as Blair hinted this week during an interview with Making Headline News, every sign of progression essentially is yet another step in the right direction for a giftedly talented prep basketball player who boasts lofty aspirations of putting his skills on display at the collegiate level.
“I improved a lot,” Blair said of last year’s performance during which he helped propel Bloomington North to a 13-8 record. “We had a winning record.”
It is, by all accounts, because of the favorable strides Blair and Co. made last year that have greatly fueled his competitive drive to continue where he left off at the conclusion of the 2018-19 season.
Of Bloomington’s 22 games last year, Blair made 21 appearances and was the Cougars’ fourth-leading scorer, averaging 8.1 points per game, according to stats compiled by Maxpreps.com.
As Bloomington North prepares to open the season against Bedford North Lawrence on November 26, Blair’s primary focus, he said, is to do whatever is necessary to help the Cougars build on last year’s success and, most importantly, make a strong case that he’s worthy of playing at the collegiate level.

Known primarily for his electrifying leaping ability and aggressive play in the post, Blair was second on the team in rebounding, grabbing 4.2 boards per game, second only to the departed Chris Thomas and then-sophomore Aaron Steinfeldt (4.8 rpg, according to Maxpreps).

Much to his delight, Blair’s valiant contributions had ultimately given way to him generating interest from at least one area school.

According to the 6-foot-3 senior swingman, Indianapolis’ Goshen College has expressed interest in him, although an official offer has yet to be made.

Of Bloomington’s 22 games last year, Blair made 21 appearances and was the Cougars’ fourth-leading scorer, averaging 8.1 points per game, according to stats compiled by Maxpreps.com.

The good news for Blair, however, is that he has plenty of time to continue auditioning for something after which he’s diligently pursuing: a full-ride athletic scholarship.

“I want them to know that I am hard worker and a team player,” said Blair, when asked what time a player would a college inherits. “I’m very knowledgeable about the game and basketball is my passion. I am eager to learn more and grow.”

Amongst those who have witnessed the continuous progress of Blair is his mother, Tequilla Ware.

Amongst those who have witnessed the continuous progress of Blair is his mother, Tequilla Ware.

A native of Forrest City, Arkansas — which is approximately an hour west of Memphis — Ware placed a basketball in the hands of her 18-year-old son when he was three years old.

He hasn’t put the rock down since, having commenced to playing what his mother describes as “Sport Shorties” when he was four years of age, a trend that eventually heighten his passion for his selected sport.


“My normal thoughts were, ‘I hope he has a great game and bring his best,’” Ware, a registered nurse and mother of two, said, explaining what customarily goes through her mind when she attends Blair’s games. “Of course, I pray for the win, but ultimately, I want to see his best, no matter the outcome.”


Every now and then, Ware admittedly harbors the kind of thoughts that are common for typical basketball moms.

“There are also the thoughts about him getting hurt out there,” Ware said, “but we make sure he stays in shape and comes prepared every game.”

Blair, in fact, works out virtually daily to enhance his mechanics and even conditions up to four hours on weekends.


PIVOTAL SEASON 

According to the 6-foot-3 senior swingman, Indianapolis’ Goshen College has expressed interest in him, although an official offer has yet to be made.

His strengths as a speedy swingman include penetrating to the basket and utilizing his height and size advantage to overpower the opposition.

“I am solid. That’s a major key,” said Blair, adding that his primary weakness is his inconsistency to dribble with his left hand.

Still, Blair emphasized, “I’m strong ready player, one who can play any position and play it with confidence.”

Known primarily for his electrifying leaping ability and aggressive play in the post, Blair was second on the team in rebounding, grabbing 4.2 boards per game, second only to the departed Chris Thomas and then-sophomore Aaron Steinfeldt (4.8 rpg, according to Maxpreps.).

“(That’s) something I’ve always wanted to do since I was a little kid,” Blair said.

With a straight face.

Atlanta-area Pastor Machele Pace’s new book provides brilliant insight on the benefits of prayer


Rejoice always; Pray without ceasing; In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NKJV)


STAYING PRAYED UP

WAR ROOM — A native of Pelham, Georgia, Machele Pace is the mastermind behind the newly-produced book entitled, “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist,” a spiritually-refreshing written work that made its official release in August 2019.

Notice, if you will, the two intriguing words that accompany Machele Pace’s name, particularly on her Facebook page:  Uncommon Favor.

For the record, there is a variety of reasons why this devout woman of faith deemed it essential to include those two words with her name.
“My life has always consisted of a life of prayer and expression of intimacy with God through relationship,” Pace told Making Headline News during a recent interview.
It is due in large part because of Pace’s immeasurable, bend-but-don’t break faith walk, coupled with her resilient prayer life that God has bestowed upon her — you’ve guess it — her share of uncommon favor.
So much, in fact, that this young preacher of the Gospel has been blessed to the add to her spiritual repertoire the proverbial Christian-based authorship title.

A native of Pelham, Georgia, Pace is the mastermind behind the newly-produced book entitled, “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist,” a spiritually-refreshing written work that made its official release in August 2019.

Approximately three months removed from having made her authorship debut, Pace is giddy of the fact that her vision to compose a compelling book has come full circle with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Having turned 47 on Tuesday (November 12), Pace has become a fixture on social media for leading regular prayers via Facebook Live.

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just 21 days to assemble, Pace has generated nothing short of favorable feedback since the release of “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist.”

“The vision came to write the book one day from people whom I would encounter in church or at gatherings, at work, or on social media who would let me know that they admired how I prayed, but they always ended with I wish I was disciplined to pray more,” Pace said. “So while I was in prayer, praying for believers to embrace more of a lifestyle of prayer, the Lord gave me (the vision) to write a practical guide to prayer.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

The beloved minster at Ahavah Christian Fellowship Church — a ministry that is centered on prayer, the word, worship and praise, and evangelistic outreach — Pace’s “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist” was assembled to accommodate the lifestyle of people from various walks of life, even those often find it difficult to established a solid prayer life.


“(I wrote this book) so that anyone — whether seasoned or a beginner in prayer — could have a tool that would help them better understand how to approach prayer and how to strengthen their prayer life,” Pace said. “Never forsake prayer. It does not matter where you are in life, you can and should always pray and you can always improve your prayer life and time with Father God.”


Pace thought it necessary to issue a warning, of sorts, to those who frequently abort their privilege to pray.

“Prayerlessness allows the enemy to gain advantages in our lives, but a life of prayer will give rise to the will of God that leads to purpose and destiny for our lives,” Pace explained. “Prayer is pretty powerful when we think about it.”

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just 21 days to assemble, Pace has generated nothing short of favorable feedback since the release of “Prayer Primer For The Christian Devotionalist.”

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — The daughter of Pastor Jerome Pace and Everlene Mitchell of Pelham, Machele Pace received Jesus  Christ and became filled with the Holy Ghost at the tender age of 13.

“I am being told by those who have already purchased the book that it has caused them to see a different sensitivity to prayer; for others, it has helped them redevelop a prayer life with understanding, yet others it has helped them to pray from a different foundation of prayer helping them to mature their prayer life,” Pace said. “Some are even teaching their children through steps in the book that are very hands-on and easy to follow to develop a more stable and successful prayer life.”

Now that her authorship debut is effectively underway, Pace is destined to write Book No. 2 much sooner than later, a project that will also address the benefits of exemplifying a solid prayer life.

“I am working on another more in-depth prayer book that will consist of a book of prayers,” said Pace who typically hosts conferences that are geared toward the subjects that are addressed in her book. “I am also working on a book that is a self-help book that is based more on my professional training and knowledge. It will help many gain balance in critical life moments.”

She officially accepted her divine call to ministry in 1996 during which she had become a licensed minister under the leadership and spiritual covering of the late Apostle Dr. Leon Bryant Seymore of Jacksonville, Florida.

Two years later, Pace was installed as a Pastor under the same ministry for which she accepted her calling, a development that ultimately led to her becoming the Pastor of Ahavah Worship Center in Decatur, Georgia.

Approximately three months removed from having made her authorship debut, Pace is giddy of the fact that her vision to compose a book has come full circle with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Much to her delight, that God has strategically anointed Pace to become an author aligns with the purpose for which she was created. Pace’s ministerial career spans two decades.

“I believe that one of my God-given purposes in the earth is to lead people back to a place in God that is true and authentic through the platform of prayer…to help our generation understand why we pray and, most importantly, how to pray that we can be successful, praying prayers that will terminate the insults of the enemy of our souls as well as help us to freely move into our God-given destinies…to also pass to the next generation prayer as a staple in families and homes alike,” Pace said.

Talk about putting uncommon favor to good use.

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


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


SAVED & SASSY 

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

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

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

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

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

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

That’s not all, Jordan acknowledged.

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

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

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

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

After all, with God, all things are possible.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

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

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


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


BLESSED BEYOND MEASURES

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


REMEMBERING EDWARD

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

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

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

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

A 5-foot-11, 205-pound speedy running back, Chambers has turned in valiant contributions for a Lancers, a Holmdel, New Jersey-based private institution that opens postseason play November 15 at Donovan Catholic, according to Maxpreps.com.
COLLEGE PARTY — While Chambers’ quest to sign a National Letter of Intent in the coming months remains a mystery, the possibility exists that his dream of playing college football could become a reality. According to Chambers, he’s garnered letters of interest from Purdue, East Carolina, the University of Buffalo, the University of Richmond, Central Connecticut, Princeton, and Rutgers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Chambers’ father, Marcus Chamber, his mother, Jessica M. Zamot, are amongst those who have witnessed their son’s progress on the field in recent years.

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


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


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

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

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


PRAYING WITHOUT CEASING

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

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

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

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

Every single chance he gets.

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


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


DESTINY STEPS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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


AFTER YOU’VE SUFFERED AWHILE…

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

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

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

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

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

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

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