Arkansas author Victoria Evans’ ‘Pieces Of Me’ figures to be a brilliant must read, constant page-turner


I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV)


DALLAS — Victoria Evans had no lofty idea.

In fact, she couldn’t even see it, quite frankly.

Then just like that, God stepped in and revealed Himself as only He could.


PIECES OF SUCCESS 

DESTINY STEPS — A credible life coach and recent graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Victoria Evans is the mastermind behind the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Pieces Of Me,” her newly-assembled written document that is expected to help advance the kingdom mightily.

For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation had come wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life.

Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“It took a while to accept what was put in front of me, but I made a decision to follow God’s promise,” Evans, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author, told Making Headline News this week.

For what it’s worth, it’s wasn’t until Evans steadfastly followed God’s lead that she, in turn, was introduced to the vision for which she was created.

NOT TOO EARLY — While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, Evans told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, she told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

To her credit, Evans’ “Pieces Of Me” figures to be an constant page-turner, primarily because it is centered largely on reaching people whom she says are “silently dying” or “suffering in pain,” particularly from the struggles they sense are too embarrassing to speak about, she said.

“I want to be a voice for others,” Evans says without hesitation.

It is, by all accounts, because of her eloquent voice through “Pieces Of Me” that has proven to serve as not just a spiritual spokesperson for those in dire need of breakthrough but, above all, her voice through her writings is indicative of just how much God has entrusted her to help enrich and empower the lives of His people for such a pivotal time as now.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation came wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life. Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.


“My message through this book is that it is okay to go through struggles and sometimes feel like we aren’t going to make it, but it’s what we do to grow from it that matters. We get to choose to live or die in those situations. Not just physical death, but spiritually as well.” — Author Victoria Evans


Although she’s already fielding favorable feedback from a book that is months away from its official release, Evans emphasized, among other things: “I hope that the people that know me now can look at me and feel that (they are) much more empowered to live out their dreams and know that there is nothing you can’t do regardless of adversities we face.”

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of a year-and-a-half to compose — “I began writing the book the summer of 2017 and I finished at the end of 2018,” she said — Evans is thoroughly convinced that “Pieces Of Me” is in alignment with her divine purpose.

“I know this book is a part of the purpose God has created for me, because every one of us has a story to tell,” Evans said. “We just have to find a way to tell it. Some choose through music, others through art. My choice was writing.”

And what a remarkably compelling masterpiece it is.


VICTORIOUS VICTORIA 

NATIONAL IMPACT — Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“Not many people know my background or the things that I have faced in my life,” said Evans, adding that another book is surely forthcoming. “And, for a lot of it, I chose to keep quiet in fear of hurting others. It came to a point in my life that I had to make a decision: Do I choose me or everyone else? I had to choose me. For the first time in a while, it was like breathing that first deep breath after drowning.”

Talk about appropriately picking up the broken pieces, all of which were designed to catapult her to her destiny from the outset.

Arkansas author Urica Ray conquers her ‘valley and dry place’ experiences, writes a life-changing book


But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)


DALLAS — Urica Ray fielded the question as if she expected it.

“I’m glad you asked,” Ray, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling when God had given her the vision to assemble her new book. “I actually started writing the book on March 7, 2015.”

After having spent the next three years or so brainstorming, Ray officially began composing “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain” in November 2018.

A RAY OF BLESSINGS 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — Even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Mid-South author Urica Ray her strategic assignment through her book entitled, “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

By month’s end, her awe-inspiring masterpiece was all but complete and, much to her delight, it has been nothing short of remarkable.

As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season, one she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

“And I couldn’t understand that dry place but it had to happen,” Ray said without hesitation. “At this particular time, I felt like a baby in an incubator, fighting for my life. You know, a baby in an incubator is waiting on the physician to come and see about him or her, and that’s how I felt. I felt like I was in an incubator, waiting on God, waiting to see, hear, and waiting on a touch from Him.”

STANDING OVATION — Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part, Ray said.

As Ray had ultimately discovered, it was time in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator that proved to be a defining moment, of sorts, particularly as it pertains to this Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author stepping out on faith even when it seemed her faith was bleak.

In fact, even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Ray her strategic assignment through “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

Because after all, amongst the notable factors she’s grasped is that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that God had a divine purpose for this devout woman of faith even while being confined to that spiritual incubator.


“The message I want the people to know and see is that God’s hand is not too small. Sometimes, the valley place is our blessed place. We have to go through the valley in order to get to the promise.” — Author Urica Ray 


BUT GOD — As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part.

“The feedback (has been) amazing from the readers, and some were emotional just to see the lives of people gaining strength, hope, and faith,” said Ray, adding that a second book undoubtedly is forthcoming, although a specific timeframe has yet to be determine.

A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

As for her itinerary, Ray announced that she has a few life-coaching events scheduled for some time in April. Also, will appear on Jonesboro’s KLEK 102.5 F.M. in the coming months, during which she and other LCSA authors will discuss a variety of stories and other topics.

Given all through which she’s overcome, Ray doesn’t shy away from the notion that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


THUS SAID THE LORD…

“The purpose God created (me) is in His word in Jeremiah 1:5 that says: “Before I formed you, I knew you; before you were born I set you apart,’” Ray said. “And that part of the scripture says enough, letting me know that His plans are not like man, so therefore, my book was not created for me, but for someone who will cross the same path as I.”

What a difference a season in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator has made.

Arkansas author Tyneisha Collins’ latest book comes in a year of her 30th birthday, forthcoming wedding

DALLAS — Although the first month of the New Year is about reach its midway point, 2019 is already shaping up to be a rather memorable, festive, banner one for Tyneisha Renai Collins.

For starters, Collins will welcome in her 30th birthday on Monday during a celebratory party with a gallery of loved ones, friends, and close acquaintances.

As if that isn’t enough to bring to all smiles this beloved Arkansas educator and the 2017 Making Headline News Woman of the Year, Collins will witness the much anticipated release of her second book entitled, “I AM QUEEN ENOUGH.”


PRESENCE OF ROYALTY 

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH — Although the first month of the New Year is about reach its midway point, 2019 is already shaping up to be a rather memorable, festive, banner one for Tyneisha Renai Collins, the mastermind behind her newly-produced book entitled, “I AM QUEEN ENOUGH.”

A written work that is comprised of a 136-page paperback and 91-page eBook edition, Collins’ sophomore book will debut nearly two years after the release of “I AM QUEEN,” her 194-page initial project that sold in unprecedented numbers and gave way to this Bronx, New York native being the beneficiary of a number of awards and accolades in the process.

“In my first book, I declared that ‘I AM QUEEN’ which sparked a huge movement amongst Queens all over the world,” Collins told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “Now in the second book, not only am I declaring once again that ‘I AM QUEEN,’ I am also declaring that ‘I AM QUEEN ENOUGH’ to persevere through any and everything.”

A MUST READ —A written work that is comprised of a 136-page paperback and 91-page eBook edition, Collins’ sophomore book will debut nearly two years after the release of “I AM QUEEN,” her 194-page initial project that sold in unprecedented numbers and gave way to this Bronx, New York native being the beneficiary of a number of awards and accolades in the process.

Just like during her ceremonious authorship debut when she created a national buzz through “I AM QUEEN,” Collins’ latest project figures to attract a similar response.

“Tyneisha’s first book has spawned the occurrence of her second book being presented to not only divulge a previously unknown situation, but Tyneisha implodes and explodes in ways that not only confirm her first book’s revelation knowledge, but also through her courage and due diligence she deals with the good, the not so good, and the not so pretty, taking it all in and fully understanding where to go and exactly what to do,” said a spokesperson for Collins’ book at Amazon.com.

“Read, remember, and enjoy, then realize and know it, too, that we all, —whether male or female — can persevere and become and KINGS ENOUGH and QUEENS ENOUGH when we look to our Father, the Lord Jesus Christ in spirit and truth.”

All things considered, Collins, who can greatly attest to what it’s like to press and navigate through arguably the toughest of hardships, emphasized, among other things, that her latest book is a  continuation of the her God-mandated assignment.


WHO IS TYNEISHA RENAI COLLINS? https://www.iamqueen.net/

WALKING IN HER DESTINY — Having commenced to constructing I AM QUEEN ENOUGH in January 2018, Collins need somewhere in the neighborhood of nine months to write her latest book as the manuscript was complete in September 2018.

“The single most underlying reason why I chose to produce this book is because I am a child of God that strives to do God’s work. I saw the tremendous impact that my first book, ‘I AM QUEEN,’ had on Queens all over the world, and I wanted to continue to inspire more Queens through my own life and mind blowing transparency.” — Author Tyneisha Renai Collins


To her credit, Collins wasted little time assembling Book No. 2.

GOD-ORDERED STEPS — Having commenced to constructing I AM QUEEN ENOUGH in January 2018, Collins need somewhere in the neighborhood of nine months to write her latest book as the manuscript was complete in September 2018.

“I like to take my time when writing and strategically mapping out how I’m going to reach my readings and properly convey my overall message, which takes a lot of prayer and seeking God through it all,” Collins said.

Much to her delight, God certainly guided her mightily through her newest published project just as He had done in the previous one.

Which, to Collins’ credit, has only added to what figures to be a year to remember, considering along with turning 30 and witnessing the release of a new book on January 14, she will be exchanging nuptials with CJay Reed, the love of her life later this year.


HIS QUEEN, HER KING 

LOVE AND MARRIAGE — Much to her delight, God certainly guided her mightily through her newest published project just as He had done in the previous. Which, to Collins’ credit, has only added to what figures to be a year to remember, considering along with turning 30 and witnessing the release of a new book on January, she will be exchanging nuptials with CJay Reed, the love of her life later this year.

“My supporters have expressed their excitement about my new book, because in my first book, I left some questions unanswered about my personal life, which led to them being very anxious to read my new book,” Collins, who teaches at Osceola North Elementary School, explained. “My new book lines up with my purpose, because I believe that it will touch just as many lives as my first book. My ultimate purpose in life is to help others become a better version of themselves and because of my obedience and transparency in my books, I truly believe I will always be able to reach QUEENs all over the world.”

LEAST SHE FORGET — Having pressed and navigated her way through an assortment of hurtful, tear-jerking encounters, Collins, to her credit, thought it essential to tell of her life-enhancing, awe-inspiring testimonies in her first book entitled, “I AM QUEEN.” The book was officially released in March 2017.

As for whether her reading audience can expect a third book, while Collins didn’t announce that something of that nature is set in stone, she surely hasn’t totally ruled it out either.

“In regards to writing other books, only God knows what the future holds for me,” Collins said. “But I will say this: if God gives me an assignment to write another book, I will honor His wishes and write another book.”

Then again, Collins essentially sounded very much like someone who just might have another published book in her spirit, given all through which she has gone and had to overcome and conquered.

JUST NEVER KNOW — As for whether her reading audience can expect a third book, while Collins didn’t announce that something of that nature is set in stone, she hasn’t totally ruled it out either.

“I am an overcomer of low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, and rejection,” Collins said. “I will be 30 on January 14 and to celebrate reaching such a monumental milestone in my life that I didn’t never thought I was going to reach, I have decided to gift (my supporters) with my new book.

“Most people buy a house, take an amazing trip, or do something they have never done for their 30th birthday, but in true QUEEN fashion, I had to go into my 30th year in the most unique way — QUEEN style by simply choosing to invest in myself and the world with my second book, ‘I AM QUEEN ENOUGH.’”

Enough said.

Little Rock author/evangelist R. M. Hoof’s ‘Broken Alabaster Box’ having a massive kingdom impact


And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment; and stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. (Luke 7:37-39 KJV) 


Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, R. M. Hoof was willing to do whatever necessary to steadfastly cover her beloved daughter and others — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Saying if, by chance, her daughter had become victimized by rape, Hoof — just as she was taught as a young child while being raised in a Christian environment — deemed it essential to turn to God for some much-needed sense of direction.


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

UNSHAKABLE FAITH — A native of Camden, Arkansas, R. M. Hoof of Little Rock is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Broken Alabaster Box,” a newly-project written document that is a little more than 11 months removed from its official release.

“I did not want my daughter to feel that if she was raped, that it was her fault or any other woman for that reason,” Hoof told Making Headline News this week.

As it turned out, God, His usual reliable Self, wasted little time guiding Hoof – this devout woman of faith — on a memorable, spiritually-enhancing journey, one whereby she would be afforded the golden opportunity to share of her assortment of testimonies in what has been widely dubbed a kingdom-advancing book.

BUY R. M. HOOF’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Broken-Alabaster-Box-Renita-Hoof/dp/0692063900

Released officially on January 29, 2018, Hoof’s “Broken Alabaster Box” is comprised of 154 pages in length and depicts the beautiful story of the woman with the alabaster box, a familiar development that is housed in the book of Luke in the New Testament, which Hoof cites has had a major impact on her.

“I once considered myself even lower than this woman, who had committed many sins,” Hoof, a longtime licensed evangelist, explained in a detailed breakdown of her book at Amazon.com. “But whose desire to honor Jesus in her own humble way, drove her to disregard not just the social protocol of the day, but others’ opinion of her. She honored Jesus by anointing His feet with expensive perfume contained in an alabaster box.”

But here’s the real breakthrough, Hoof reveals to the people of God in a book that’s also available at Barnes and Noble online and at Little Rock’s Pyramid Book Store (located at 1001 Wright Avenue).

“We all have an alabaster box that we can present to the Lord,” she said without hesitation.


MORE ON AUTHOR R. M. HOOF: https://www.renitahoof.com/

A book that Hoof – whose widely known as Renita Hoof — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of eight months to assemble, her authorship debut has been so remarkably impressive that her reading audience has already begun inquiring about whether she will produce other books.


“I have been asked countless times when is the second book coming out. I have been asked to speak at several churches about the book as well. I have been told that it was a page-turner and they could not put it down.” — Author Evangelist R. M. Hoof 


Having announced that she has speaking engagements lined up — “However, there are none at the time pertaining to the book,” she said — other books are currently in the works, Hoof said.

SPIRITUAL GPS SYSTEM — As it turned out, God, His usual reliable Self, wasted little time guiding Hoof – this devout woman of faith — on a memorable, spiritually-enhancing journey, one whereby she would be afforded the golden opportunity to share of her assortment of testimonies in what has been widely dubbed a kingdom-advancing book.

“Beyond The Brokenness and And Raising David and Deborah; Warriors,” said Hoof, revealing the names of her forthcoming written works.

When asked in what ways is her latest book apart of the purpose for which God has created her, Hoof said, “My ministry is to broken men and women. My heart has always gone out to them. It wasn’t until after the birth of the book that I realized my true call and purpose. The plan was then revealed.”

All things considered, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Hoof’s God-orchestrated plan has come full circle and, most importantly, it is steadily advancing the kingdom in the process.

THEY WANT MORE — A book that Hoof – whose widely known as Renita Hoof — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of eight months to assemble, her authorship debut has been so remarkably impressive that her reading audience has already begun inquiring about whether she will produce a second book.

“Broken Alabaster Box was birthed through the pain of a young woman who did not see herself through the eyes of God,” Hoof emphasized. “My vision was blurred and obscured. I only saw myself through the lens of my assailants.”

But God…

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — When asked in what ways is her latest book apart of the purpose for which God has created her, Hoof said, “My ministry is to broken men and women. My heart has always gone out to them. It wasn’t until after the birth of the book that I realized my true call and purpose. The plan was then revealed.”

“I had no self-worth and my self-esteem was only predicated on what someone else thought of me,” Hoof recalled. “Jealousy and insecurity ran ramped in my mind. Strong holds held my thoughts captive. It was only until I began to have a real relationship with God was I set free.”

That’s because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, she was willing to do whatever was necessary to steadfastly capture and sustain the abundant life that Christ came to give us — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Mid-South Pastor Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer’s banner year continues with the forthcoming release of his second book

It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes. (Psalm 119:71 KJV)


Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer is an accomplished Mid-South-area Pastor.

Add to his illustrious resume “extraordinary author” as well.

That’s because days after being named National TAP Author of the Year, Dr. Spencer announced the forthcoming release of his new book entitled, “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary.”

An 80-Day Devotional Journal, Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” is his second published book and is scheduled to make its official release on December 15.

THE PSALM 119:71 FACTOR — Days after being named National TAP Author of the Year, Dr. Spencer announced the forthcoming release of his new book entitled, “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary.”

 

A native of Chicago, who currently resides in Jonesboro, Arkansas — though he was raised in nearby Blytheville — Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” will debut a little more than 15 months after he made his authorship debut, courtesy of his initial written document entitled,  “Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.”

“I chose to write this book because I love to encourage others, and I felt I could give them these same quotes that challenged and encouraged me during some of life most challenging times,” Dr. Spencer told Making Headline News during an interview in mid-February.

As for his soon-to-be released book, Dr. Spencer doesn’t shy away from the notion that while this project will be accompanied by more encouragement, he also felt compelled to explain in detail why various forms of adversity — or turbulence, if you will — had to find its way to our lives.


DR. ALANDRUS P. SPENCER’S NEW BOOK COMING 12.15.18

“The single, most underlying reason I choose to release this book is because we need to recognize that we have the unique ability on the inside to encourage ourselves and others, just as David encouraged himself in the Lord,” Dr. Spencer, the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministries, Inc. in Blytheville, told MHN this week.

As Dr. Spencer specifically acknowledged, it didn’t take him very long to catch the vision to compose his second book. In fact, he said that God had strategically given him the assignment to assemble Book No. 2 immediately after he made his authorship debut.


A RELATED STORY:  https://makingheadlinenews.com/2018/11/12/arkansas-author-dr-alandrus-p-spencer-named-national-tap-author-of-the-year/ 


“God gave me the vision to write this book immediately after I released the first book,” Dr. Spencer recalled. “He also explained to me that this book would be a part of a three-book series. My first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment was released in late 2017, so I will have one more to write in the sequel.”


BUY DR. ALANDRUS SPENCER’S LATEST BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Encouraging-Moment-Live-Life/dp/154344038X

STANDING OVATION — Dr. Spencer’s first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, is a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

 

How’s that for the Holy Trinity (the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost).

“God has always given me a heart to encourage others,” said Dr. Spencer, explaining the purpose for his upcoming book. “In fact, it’s my call and purpose.”

Add to the fact that he’s greatly empowered to customarily encourage the hearts of God’s people from behind a sacred desk, and it’s no wonder that such a fruit of the spirit essentially has become a lifestyle, of sorts, for this seasoned clergyman.

“It’s hard for me to pass someone up that having a bad day,” Dr. Spencer said. “I always feel I have a word of encouragement to help them overcome.”

That, after all, practically sums up why second book makes all of the sense in the world, not to mention explains why weeks before its release, Dr. Spencer’s “Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary” is already attracting favorable feedback.

“The feedback has been tremendous and people have expressed the high demand for me to give them more,” Dr. Spencer said. “Some have said it is the daily dose of encouragement that gets them through their day.”

IN THAT ORDER — “God gave me the vision to write this book immediately after I released the first book,” Dr. Spencer recalled. “He also explained to me that this book would be a part of a three-book series. My first book, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment was released in late 2017, so I will have one more to write in the sequel.”

As for Dr. Spencer, his forthcoming book could very well be the prelude to emerging as another award-winning piece.

So stay tuned.

“I am planning to write the last book in this series, and I am writing alongside my beautiful wife a children’s book,” Dr. Spencer said.

Making plans to add to his illustrious resume that already includes “extraordinary author.”

Much to his delight, he’s steadfastly savoring his.

His latest installment of fruit came courtesy of a much-anticipated milestone, one by which he had diligently sought for the past six months.

ONE SHINING MOMENT — A native of Chicago and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer was named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year during Saturday night’s second annual ceremony from Jonesboro, Arkansas. Pictured with Dr. Spencer is wife, Veronica.

 

Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

Fellow author Tyneisha Collins of Osceola, Arkansas was named the National TAP Author Of The Year during last year’s inaugural ceremony.

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

For Dr. Spencer, he said being named National TAP Awards Author Of The Year is a testament of his overall body of work as a relatively newcomer to the authorship industry.

“The feeling was one of shock and a very humbling experience, because I knew I was listed in a category that had great authors who have written some very good books,” said Dr. Spencer, who learned of his nomination for the award back in mid-May.

A spiritually gut-checking and life-enhancing written document that is comprised of 90 pages, Dr. Spencer’s Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, approximately two years after God had revealed to him the vision to write it.

All things considered, his first book has since been nothing short of amazing.

“I leaped on the inside,” Dr. Spencer recalled the moment his name was announced that he was named TAP’s latest Author Of The Year. “Because somehow deep on the inside of me, I knew I stood a good chance. I put the work in alongside of my words, because that’s what faith does.”

Never mind the mixed reactions that had ultimately surfaced amid the release of Dr. Spencer’s book.

WINNER’S CIRCLE — Dr. Spencer’s latest honor comes a little more than a year after the release of his first book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment, a spiritually-driven written document that has been effectively anointed an award-winner.

At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“Authors are different and unique and, while I had some to criticize my simplicity in my writing style, I knew that the world is in need of encouragement in its simple form,” Dr. Spencer said. “I love to encourage folks, and I think (because of this award), I am on the right track.”

Amongst those who have helped keep Dr. Spencer on the right track — both in the natural and spirit — is Veronica Spencer, his lifelong companion of 13-plus years.

AND THEN THERE WAS ONE — At the end of the real day, this Christian-based preacher-turned-author knows full well as that there are all sorts of perks that come with serving and being spokesperson for Christ.

“The special thing about my wife is she knows deep inside (my sentiments) before I say anything about how I arrived at that position,” said Dr. Spencer, whose second book (Encouraging Moment: The Turbulence Was Necessary) will be released in the coming weeks. “She is amazingly intelligent and blissfully beautiful and, while it may not be religiously correct to say this, I don’t care. She is my boo and babe.

“To all of my supporters and my manager (Latonya Sanders), I say thank you,” continued Dr. Spencer, who was raised in nearby Blytheville but resides in Jonesboro. “You all know I could not have pulled this off without you and this is simply a win for the team.”

Little Rock’s Andre’anna Hampton to celebrate her authorship’s one year anniversary on August 17

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS SALUTES ANDRE’ANNA HAMPTON’S AUTHORSHIP’S ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY 


Boy, does Andre’anna Hampton have some major goals and ambitions on the horizon.

So major that she has elected not to disclose them, even with the mainstream media.

“Honestly, I have great plans underway, although I really don’t want to disclose them in this interview,” Hampton, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said while chuckling, though she surely meant what she’s suggested. “What I will say is that God, my readers, and my new readers have played a great role in my career. With that being said, there are great things ahead the closing year (this year and into) 2019.”

WHO IS ANDRE’ANNA HAMPTON? https://andreannahampton.com/

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED — On August 17, Andre’anna Hampton will celebrate her one year anniversary as an accomplished author which, according to this Little Rock, Arkansas-based writer, is a monumental achievement for someone who is just a tender 26 years of age.

While Hampton feels it is in her best interest to remain tightlipped about her assortment of forthcoming opportunities, there is one notable milestone about which the general public will become enlightened — much sooner than later.

On August 17, Hampton will celebrate her one year anniversary as an accomplished author which, according to this Little Rock, Arkansas-based writer, is a monumental achievement for someone who is just a tender 26 years of age.

“My (authorship) anniversary will be very special to me, because it’s still very unbelievable that I’ve earned my title,” Hampton said. “Honestly it is. I’m not only a published author, but an international author.”

As Hampton vividly recalls, she envisioned years ago while in a local bookstore that her name would ultimately become embroidered on the front cover of a book.

Mission accomplished.

“I remember those days at Barnes & Noble and passionately wanting my name to be placed at the bottom of one of those books,” Hampton said. “It was all a passion and a dream for me.”

Much to her delight, her long-awaited dream has become a reality, courtesy of her very first book that’s entitled, “Every Woman Is Powerful” a compelling written document that is powered by J. Kenkade Publishing and was officially released on August 17, 2017.

As Hampton recalled, God had given her the awe-inspiring vision to write “Every Woman Is Powerful” sometime in February or March of last year.

What a difference one year has made for this remarkably brilliant author, a young gifted writer who has made continuous strides since her book’s much-anticipated release.

So much, in fact, that she can’t merely share those forthcoming major plans. At least, not right now.

“To me, the title means everything to me,” Hampton said of her book. “If it wasn’t for God, I wouldn’t be standing in this situation today. I thank Him every day for it all.”

A book that is comprised of 110 pages, Hampton’s “Every Woman Is Powerful” focuses on influencing women from all walks of life, most notably stay-at-home moms and wives, businesswomen “and so forth,” according to a detailed breakdown of her book at Amazon.com. The book is also available for purchase at Barnes And Noble online.

“This book encourages women to keep their love and faith in God while battling their everyday lives and finding a balance between family, ambitions, marriage, and finding a true friend in (this) author,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Hampton’s book. “While the author is sharing her actual life occurrences, she also encourages readers to be closer to God and she provides inspirational advice on how to stay the most powerful.”

As Hampton recalled, God had given her the awe-inspiring vision to write “Every Woman Is Powerful” sometime in February or March of last year.

Consequently, she needed just a few months to compose a book that is steadily having an immeasurable impact, especially amongst her fellow millennials.

WOMAN OF POWER — Much to her delight, Hampton’s long-awaited dream has become a reality, courtesy of her very first book that’s entitled, ““Every Woman Is Powerful” a compelling written document that is powered by J. Kenkade Publishing and was officially released on August 17, 2017.

“Honestly around (that) time (last year), I was battling several issues in my past and I was also battling some issues during that current time as well,” Hampton explained.

Still, despite the assortment of hurdles about which she had to clear, Hampton was determined not to allow her faith to waver.

If nothing else, she was determined to make her dream of witnessing her name be thrust on the front cover of a book a reality.

Mission accomplished.

“I believe that God has created this book just for me,” Hampton said. “The great belief I have is that God held this position of purpose for me to demonstrate strength, awareness, and self-love. During the time of the (book) release, I have inspired many, and not only by reminding others of the word. The fact of proving a testimony of my own, (readers have discovered) they’re not alone in their experiences or in life in general.”

A book that is comprised of 110 pages, Hampton’s “Every Woman Is Powerful” focuses on influencing women from all walks of life, most notably stay-at-home moms and wives, businesswomen “and so forth,” according to a detailed breakdown of her book at Amazon.com.

Looking ahead, Hampton said other books are surely forthcoming.

“There are definitely other writings in the works and that will be disclosed at a later time,” said.

But first thing’s first: It’s time to bask in the glory of having reached one full year as a professional author.

Which, after all, is a pretty amazing feat for someone who’s just a tender 26 years of age.


DEFYING THE URGE TO QUIT — Despite the assortment of hurdles about which she had to clear, Hampton was determined not to allow her faith to waver.  If nothing else, she was determined to make her dream of witnessing her name be thrust on the front cover of a book a reality.

“My audience thus far has given me great applause, because of this book (is filled with) words of encouragement,” Hampton said.

That, as a result, practically sums up why on August 17, this gifted writer is almost certain to be the beneficiary of a slew of words of encouragement.

Arkansas Pastor Alandrus P. Spencer honors his wife’s valiant support amid his nomination for National TAP Author Of The Year

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2018 SPECIAL REPORT

 

Who says a Pastor can’t have a boo thang?

Regardless, Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer would be the first to admit that he has one.

A really good one, too, mind you.

WIFE KNOWS BEST — Interestingly and much to Dr. Alandrus Spencer’s delight, it was  his wife, Veronica, who provided him with the much-needed push he needed to make his authorship debut, one that was culminated with the much-anticipated release of his book entitled, Encouraging Moment Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment. A book that has enjoyed sustained success since it officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, Dr. Spencer recently fielded yet another remarkable achievement amid his published masterpiece when he got word of having been nominated for Author Of The Year in the Second Annual National TAP Awards that will place in the coming months from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

“It would take me all day to talk about Veronica Spencer, the love of my life,” Spencer told Making Headline News this week. “Simply put, she has been my diamond, my rock, my boo thang.”

While Dr. Spencer could barely refrain from laughing out loud when referring to his companion of nearly 13 years as his “boo thang,” he acknowledged that it is due in large part to his wife’s unyielding love and tireless support that have contributed mightily to his faith walk with God, thus greatly enabled him to walk boldly in his divine purpose with God, his Helper, leading the way.

“Veronica brings a unique love to the table and has patiently been a solid mom in our blended family of two,” Dr. Spencer said while paying homage to his beloved wife as Mother’s Day 2018 looms.

Interestingly and much to his delight, it was Veronica who provided her husband with the much-needed push he needed to make his authorship debut, one that was culminated with the much-anticipated release of his book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

A book that has enjoyed sustained success since it officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, Dr. Spencer recently fielded yet another remarkable achievement amid his published masterpiece when he got word of having been nominated for Author Of The Year in the Second Annual National TAP Awards that will place in November from Jonesboro, Arkansas.

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY — “Veronica is who inspired and encouraged me to write Encouraging Moment, because she saw it in me long before people were saying it,” Dr. Spencer said. “She saw a person who would go to any length to encourage someone, even when I would face my own set of challenges.”

An event that was established by Jonesboro-area public speaker and award-winning author Terrell Jenkins, the National TAP Awards are designed to acknowledge individuals in a variety of categories for their hard work and valiant contributions to the community.

For Dr. Spencer, a native of Jonesboro and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, Inc., many of his peers sensed that his nomination for such a commendable award is a huge testament to his overall body of work, most notably as an accomplished minister, author, as well as an ambassador to his community.

“The special thing about this award is it helps to highlight the work the home team has put in,” Dr. Spencer said. “My team and covenant partners are the best and the support has been immeasurable, so most of all, I would like to win this award that is right in my home state and for the (home) team.”

VOTE HERE FOR DR. SPENCER STARTING MAY 13 THROUGH JUNE 13: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdJa2BPx2qcyMQXWvWvTWiUtHlGEiK8RRhsgrZLsakNQEThIQ/closedform 

MONUMENTAL MILESTONE AWAITS — For Dr. Spencer, a native of Jonesboro and the Senior Pastor of Touching Lives Ministry, INC, many of his peers sensed that his nomination for such a commendable award is a huge testament to his overall body of work, most notably as an accomplished minister, author, as well as an ambassador to his community.

All things considered, it was because of his wife’s unwavering support, Dr. Spencer is swift to point out, that has especially proven beneficial, particularly for such a time as now.

“Veronica is who inspired and encouraged me to write Encouraging Moment, because she saw it in me long before people were saying it,” Dr. Spencer said. “She saw a person who would go to any length to encourage someone, even when I would face my own set of challenges.”

All of which essentially explains why it is fair game for a Pastor to have a boo thang.

Let the church say Amen.

“Veronica is captivating because, she simply knows who she is and is confident in being herself,” said Dr. Spencer, around here laying it on thick while saluting his bride, as only he could. “Her smile simply lights up the room.”

Hush your mouth…and keep on talking, Reverend!

“Veronica and I work well in ministry together and, as we continue to grow in grace, we have learned this very important principle,” said Dr. Spencer, who couldn’t seem to run out of words while discussing his wife and alluding to the familiar passage that is housed in Matthew 18:19. “And that is the power of agreement. “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.”

GODLY LOVE BIRDS — While Dr. Spencer couldn’t refrain from laughing out loud when referring to his companion of nearly 13 years as his “boo thang,” he acknowledged that it is due in large part to his wife’s unyielding love and tireless support that have contributed mightily his faith walk with God, thus greatly enabled him to walk boldly in his divine purpose with God, his Helper, leading the way.

Well, that’ll surely preach.

As for having been nominated for TAP Author of The Year, Dr. Spencer said he would be mostly appreciative of his longtime supporters if he emerges victorious, thus comes away with the crystal trophy.

“If I am named Author of the Year, it will certainly speak to several areas, but the very first is how the grace of God has allowed me to get to this moment,” Spencer said. “It would speak to the impact my wife has on my life through her prayer life, love for God, love for me and others. It would speak to the support I have from the home team, family, friends and covenant partners.

“I believe it would speak to people just like me that all things are possible to them that believe,” Dr. Spencer added. “Finally I would like to say thank to Terrell Jenkins and the TAP Award (family) for being a success and helping others to be a success story.”

Something to which his boo thang can greatly attest.

Let the church say Amen.

And then vote.

Arkansas author Alandrus P. Spencer to host much-anticipated book signing in Jonesboro as sales continue to soar

Dr. Alandrus P. Spencer’s got a lot going on in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

For all the right reasons, too. 

For starters, Spencer has stiff ties to Jonesboro, considering it is his native establishment, a college town that is comprised of approximately 71,551, according to the latest U.S. census.

Not only that, Spencer and his wife, Veronica, are proud homeowners in Jonesboro, which is the fifth most populous city in the Natural State (the Jonesboro metropolitan is comprised of around 121,026 residents).

“We are in the process of establishing Touching Lives Ministry, INC (Jonesboro location),” Spencer, a longtime Pastor, told Making Headline News this week. “I really enjoy Jonesboro, because there are a lot of people that I have come in contact with that have prosperous mentalities.”

And, in the coming weeks, Spencer’s itinerary will include hosting a booking signing in Jonesboro to promote his inspiring book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

“Book sales are growing and open doors are on the rise and, as evidenced, I have been blessed with five major book signings in the Big Apple of New York.”

The book signing will take place on May 5 from Noon to 3 pm CST at Christ Ambassadors Ministries International, located at 5114 East Nettleton Avenue.

A spiritually gut-checking and life-enhancing written document that is comprised of 90 pages, Dr. Spencer’s Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment officially hit the market on September 20, 2017, approximately two years after God had revealed to him the vision to write it.

BUY DR. ALANDRUS SPENCER’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Encouraging-Moment-Live-Life/dp/154344038X

“People in Jonesboro love strong and support their very own, and I am happy to be a part of this awesome display of God’s love and encouragement,” Dr. Spencer said.

“I chose to write this book because I love to encourage others, and I felt I could give them these same quotes that challenged and encouraged me during some of life most challenging times,” Dr. Spencer told MHL during an interview in mid-February.

As for hosting the book signing in his native hometown, Dr. Spencer attributed his decision to the valiant support he customarily receives from residents of the city.

“People in Jonesboro love strong and support their very own, and I am happy to be a part of this awesome display of God’s love and encouragement,” Dr. Spencer said.

What’s even more intriguing is that sales of his new book sales are on the rise. Dr. Spencer said.

HOMECOMING FORTHCOMING — In the coming weeks, Dr. Alandrus Spencer’s itinerary will include hosting a booking signing in Jonesboro to promote his inspiring book entitled, Encouraging Moment: Live Life By An Encouraging Moment.

“Book sales are growing and open doors are on the rise and, as evidenced, I have been blessed with five major book signings in the Big Apple of New York.”

Surely, he couldn’t have enjoyed sustained success without a solid supporting cast.

“My team and I are working to do a few book signings in Jonesboro,” said Dr. Spencer, adding that his book can be purchased at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Xilbris. “But I keep books with me at all time, because I like to deliver them, to give that personal touch, to build fellowship  and possibly pray for those who may be in need. I live every day to encourage someone in a world that’s missing the importance of encouragement every day.”

Especially in good ole Jonesboro.

For all the right reasons, too.

Arkansas Evangelist Rhonda Hodges on her inaugural empowerment conference: ‘There was standing room only’

For Rhonda Hodges, those slew of electronic messages, accompanied by some rather harm-warming words of encouragement came in at an increasingly rapid trend.

KINGDOM TREND SETTER — Evangelist Rhonda Hodges’ Denim And Pearls And Empowered Girls Conference that took place on March 9 at Touching Lives Ministries in Blytheville, Arkansas drew a standing-room-only crowd and was a success, she told Making Headline News this week. (Photo Credits: BLAIR)

“I have received numerous calls, text, inboxes, and emails from women who attended the conference as well as those who watched from live video, stating that they have a whole new mindset in how they see themselves,” Hodges, during an interview with Making Headline News this week, said while recalling the events of an event she hosted and figures to host for years to come.

The event to which Hodges is alluding of her inaugural Denim And Pearls And Empowered Girls Conference that took place on March 9 at Touching Lives Ministries in Blytheville, Arkansas.

A one-night conference that was powered by Rhonda Hodges Ministries, Hodges was also featured psalmist during an event that amassed a standing-room-only crowd and left a majority of the attendees in awe by the time the benediction had been given.

“I was there, and it was beyond amazing,” said Osceola (Arkansas) High School instructor and accomplished author Tyneisha Renai Collins. “Beautiful atmosphere from beginning to end!”

A one-night conference that was powered by Rhonda Hodges Ministries, Hodges was also featured psalmist during an event that amassed a standing-room-only crowd and left a majority of the attendees in awe by the time the benediction had been given.

Generally, such an assessment was echoed time and again hours, even days after Hodges’ inaugural event.

A Joiner, Arkansas native who accepted her calling into the ministry in April 2000, Hodges was officially ordained as a licensed minister under the leadership of Pastor Theodis Rucker.

To her credit, coupled with the fact that God has strategically set her aside for His use, her kingdom-based contributions have been nothing short of amazing since she sold out completely as a spokesperson for the Body of Christ.

Need more proof?

Look no further than what unfolded last week in Year No. 1 of her conference.

CAMPAIGNING FOR JESUS CHRIST — A Joiner, Arkansas native who accepted her calling into the ministry in April 2007, Hodges was officially ordained as a licensed minister under the leadership of Pastor Theodis Rucker.

“There was standing room only with over 125 women registered and (we sold) 230 I Am An Empowered Woman T-shirts,” Hodges a longtime Arkansas registered nurse, said. “This may sound small, but for an area where poverty is evident, it seldom happens. Not to mention, I don’t have my own church and neither am I a Pastor. Bur for outreach ministry, I was very satisfied with the turnout.”

As were the overflow crowd that showed up with a lofty expectation that Christ would be lifted up mightily for a time such at that one-day conference.

An event that was dedicated to women and girls of all ages, Hodges’ conference was centered largely on empowering them to understand their value as women as well as inspire them to focus on the importance of not throwing “your pearls to the swine,” as Hodges appropriately summed up.

“In other words, when they understand who they are and whose they are, then they are not so quick to settle for anything or anyone less than what God has instructed,” Hodges explained. “We are created with purpose, and I want women girls to know they must love themselves first.”

More than anything, Hodges emphasized, there’s this thing called respect, and she wasn’t merely referring to the classic song by iconic pop singer Aretha Franklin.

An event that was dedicated to women and girls of all ages, Hodges conference was centered largely on empowering them to understand their value as women as well as inspire them to focus on the importance of not throwing “your pearls to the swine,” as Hodges appropriately summed up.

“Respecting themselves and the call of God upon their lives are of extreme importance to me,” Hodges said. “It is my heart’s desire to empower them to walk in obedience for such a time as this and creating a movement that is contagious all across the land which, in turn, overpowers mind, body and soul.”

Because of the overwhelming response to her inaugural conference, Hodges has announced that plans are effectively underway for Year No. 2 of her Christian-based, kingdom-advancing event.

Given the outpour of support and positive feedback following last week’s conference, hosting it in 2019 practically was a foregone conclusion.

Let the church say Amen.

STAY TUNED — Because of the overwhelming response to her inaugural conference, Hodges has announced that plans are effectively underway for Year No. 2 of her Christian-based, kingdom-advancing event which.

“I plan to host this event again next year as I felt it was one of the best conferences I have ever sponsored,” Hodges said. “I will definitely look for a venue with more space. I hope to have a luncheon if finances allow. I would love to add more vendors to allow women to see the services that are offered in our county and, possibly some type of follow-up training or an open forum 30-to-60 days afterward as a follow-up to help these women and young girls to reach their potential.

“Many women stated how beautiful I made them feel, and that my passion for the young girls and women made them want to live, because they felt ugly and just wanted to die,” Hodges added. “Another lady sent an inbox stating, ‘Rhonda, you are a powerhouse, and I am so proud to know you.’”

For what it’s worth, those who turned out for the empowerment conference practically encouraged the mastermind behind the event.

“(The lady who sent the email) encouraged me to stay focused and went on to say how I was an inspiration to many,” Hodges said. “Another woman stated, ‘I love your realness and how you’re not ashamed to share your story and that you give your heart to those who you encounter.’”

Let the church say Amen.

Once again.
