Alabama author Monique Pettaway-Ray savoring the ‘abundant life’ Christ came to give us through a new book

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


Monique Pettaway-Ray was in the process of living her best life.

At least, she sensed she was.

As Pettaway-Ray recalled like yesterday, she was approximately six months removed from having exchanged nuptials with the man of her dreams.

POINTING TOWARD THE HEAVENS — A native of Saraland, Alabama, Monique Pettaway-Ray is amongst a gallery of accomplished authors who have joined forces to compose the book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” which is scheduled to be officially released in December.

As if that wasn’t enough to bring her to all smiles, she had eventually landed a rather commendable entry-level position as a middle school science instructor in Huntsville, Alabama.

Life, as she knew it, was the life she sensed she fully deserved, was the life she had worked so diligently to reap and possess with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Then just like that, the enemy — just as he always does — had ultimately showed his true colors, considering Pettaway-Ray’s life had suddenly “imploded,” according to a spokesperson for her book entitled, “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison.”

LEAD OFF HITTER — Having made her authorship debut a little more than a decade ago, Pettaway-Ray’s “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison” took somewhere in the neighborhood of about five years to compose.

That’s because her newlywed husband was consequently convicted for murder and sentenced to life in prison without parole.

“A vital part of her life was ripped from her and Monique didn’t know how to cope,” according to a spokesperson in a detailed breakdown of her September 2007 released book.

Fast forward some 11 years later, Pettaway-Ray, a longtime educator for the Mobile (Ala.) County Public Schools System, has deemed it essential to collectively share of her assortment of life-changing testimonies through another awe-inspiring project along with a host of other writers.

A native of  Saraland, Alabama, Pettaway-Ray is amongst a gallery of accomplished authors who have joined forces to compose the book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises.”

ONE PRECIOUS, GODLY GIFT — An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is forwarded by Flint, Michigan-based author Precious S. Brown and is scheduled to make its official release on the market on December 17.

An empowering, kingdom-advancing written document, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is forwarded by Flint, Michigan-based author Precious S. Brown and is scheduled to make its official release on the market on December 17.

During a recent interview with Making Headline News, Pettaway-Ray was complementary of Brown for obeying the Voice of God by establishing a notable platform for her and other authors to tell of God’s goodness through their slew of trials and tribulations.

“I chose to be a part of this book, because there are so many people who are living in their own mental prison who don’t have a support system or guidance to help them overcome their pains,” Pettaway-Ray said. “This book will help women find healing and support they are seeking.”

All things considered, amongst the things about which Pettaway-Ray found especially intriguing was Brown’s keen ability to fortify agape love, coupled with her willingness to display transparency.

FINDING HER SPIRITUAL NICHE — Pettaway-Ray, a longtime educator for the Mobile (Ala.) County Public Schools System, has deemed it essential to collectively share of her assortment of life-changing testimonies through another awe-inspiring project along with a host of other writers.

“I began the journey of writing this book when I teamed up with Precious Brown of Kilgore Publishing,” Pettaway-Ray explained. “She told me about her vision of this current book and when I heard the title, I truly felt in my spirit that this was a book I definitely wanted to be a part of, because I believe everyone has a story and that everyone’s story can inspire hope and change someone’s life.”

Having made her authorship debut a little more than a decade ago, Pettaway-Ray’s “Incarcerated But Free: How To find Freedom From Your Mental Prison” took somewhere in the neighborhood of about five years to compose.

As for her latest project, it didn’t take as long, in large part because all things considered, God had already showed Himself strong amid the enemy having shown his true colors.

IN AWE OF GOD — As for Pettaway-Ray’s latest project, it didn’t take as long to complete, in large part because all things considered, God had already showed Himself strong amid the enemy having shown his true colors.

“Before God called me to the ministry, I was broken, hurt, and confused. It was only after I rededicated my life to Christ that God began to reveal to me His purpose for my life. Since then, God has delivered me from my pain and now I am on a mission to help women overcome their challenges and be healed from their past hurts. — Monique Pettaway-Ray


“Because when a woman can be healed from her hurts, she is free to live that abundant life that Christ promised in scripture.”

The abundant, much to Pettaway-Ray’s delight, is something by which she has thoroughly possessed even after having endured arguably the darkest season of her life.

Yep. That’s just like God.

NOT TODAY, DEVIL — The abundant, much to Pettaway-Ray’s delight, is something by which she has thoroughly possessed even after having endured arguably the darkest season of her life.

“The message I am sending to people is that regardless of what you have been through or what experiences you have had, you can still be a vessel used by God,” Pettaway-Ray said. “You just have to realize that there are gifts and talents that lie deep inside and God just wants us to be willing to use those gifts for his glory.

“A gift is not a gift unless you give it to someone,” Pettaway continued. “God expects us to use our gifts for the purpose of helping others. It’s never too late to fulfill passion, purpose, or the power that God has placed inside of you. God only wants a willing vessel.”

Pettaway-Ray would know for sure, considering she’s a vessel who has deemed it a foregone conclusion to be used by God Almighty.

“I was shy and didn’t have any confidence in myself,” Wallace, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining in great detail the memorable events that gave way to her delving off into entrepreneurship. “But when I start stepping out on faith and surrounding myself with people who are positive and putting God first, then (I discovered that) anything is possible.”

She got that right. And to her distinctly unique credit, Wallace as gone to great lengths to not just put God first, but she’s steadfastly stayed true to herself, particularly as young businesswoman who boast lofty aspirations of functioning mightily in her element in the process.

GOTTA TRY THIS STUFF — Interesting, the Healthy Weight Loss Coffee has proven to be extremely efficient and therapeutic in that is has been known to help parents with children who have been diagnosed with ADHD and other challenges, Wallace said.

South Carolina entrepreneur Ebony Hughes defies health-related challenges, becomes a fixture for 7 Dimensions

In case you don’t know her, Ebony Hughes would like to introduce herself.

A native of Hemingway, South Carolina, Hughes, 35, is a proud graduate of Hemingway’s Carvers Bay High School.

She would eventually advance her educational endeavors at Coastal Carolina University in nearby Conway, which has greatly enabled her to pursue, fulfill, and carry out her dream as a rising businesswoman.


CONNECT WITH EBONY HUGHES: https://www.facebook.com/my7dimensions/
MAKING HER PRESENCE FELT — Georgetown, South Carolina-area businesswoman Ebony Hughes has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

Credit her seemingly dysfunctional and unhealthy lifestyle as arguably the biggest reasons why.

“After starting my insurance business and working around the clock to grow it successfully, my work and personal life became unbalanced,” Hughes told Making Headline News this week. “Over time, I became over weight. I had to buy larger clothes and I had become ashamed of my body.”

For Hughes, she was determined to see to it that such health-related hurdles were short-lived.

That, after all, practically sums up why she has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible largely for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

“My team and I make sure that clients get a customized meal and training plan and follow up with them regularly, most times daily to motivate them to stay on track with their plan and remind them of their goals to keep them accountable,” said Hughes, providing a thorough overview of her business venture.

Amongst the factors that are especially intriguing about Hughes’ business is that because it is an online endeavor, she’s afforded the golden opportunity to have more of a global impact.

 

“I like that my business helps people on an online platform and app so that I can stay connected to my clients and have a more balanced life,” Hughes said of a venture that caters to people of all ages.

Interestingly, 7 Dimensions has evolved and attracted a global presence, in large part because it is committed to helping its clients embrace the notion that this journey has no final destination, according to a spokesperson for 7 Dimensions at https://www.my7dimensions.com/.

“We don’t stop when we find a treasure chest at the end of a rainbow,” the 7 Dimensions spokesperson added. “There are three treasures that you will find almost immediately, and that will grow in power every day you maintain this journey with us: getting healthier, sustained energy, and a love of life that can only come from the natural rush of endorphins blasting your body with every beat of your pounding heart.”

Much to the delight to Hughes, those are the essential and therapeutic benefits she has acquired since joining 7 Dimensions.

Which is to say that she has nowhere to go but up in what has become a globally-acclaimed company.

“I started feeling sluggish and tired,” said Hughes, recalling those during which she struggled with her health. “I just knew that I was sick and no doctor had to tell me this. The craziest part of it all is that I knew better as I majored in health promotion. I knew that I needed to lose the fat.

“I promised myself that would lose weight and joined a gym, and I lost a few pounds, but I still felt bad and gave up after a while of busting my butt at the gym and eating, what I thought was, healthy foods. A few short months later, I lost my breath and thought that I was going to die on my sofa. I began to pray to the Lord to ask Him to help me live so my children would not find me dead.” — Ebony Hughes 


 

For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

“I immediately made the decision to see a weight-loss coach,” Hughes said. “I started researching diets and started to understand why I had not lost any significant amount of what. It’s because I was addicted to sugar, and most Americans are as well. I learned that quitting sugar or managing sugar cravings is harder to do than a person trying to quit heroin. After thousands of dollars spent, I did lose weight and I was motivated to help others do the same.”

She’s doing just that with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I know through my own life experiences of being overweight, sick, and (harboring) low self-esteem, I knew others were going through the same thing,” said Hughes, adding that her children are amongst those who inspired her to achieve her health-related goals. “I believe cultural ideologies, education or the lack thereof, media, and other environmental factors affect a person’s outcome, so I want to be the mediator for as many people as I can help.”

Arizona entrepreneur Stephanie White defies the urge to quit, establishes a credible event planning business

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


For Stephanie White, one would be hard-pressed not to discover that her professional event planning business, by all accounts, is what she describes as her “niche.”

Then again, her niche goes far beyond running the day-to-day operations of her venture.

“(It’s) my niche,” White told Making Headline News this week. “My personal mission is to help and serve, to give back to others. I desire to create a business where I can hire people to help and always have work for my staff…to help others find work in my business. There are tons of businesses we see closing and people are left without jobs. I want to be the first wedding planning business to provide jobs.”

GLOBAL THING OF BEAUTY — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made since she diligently stepped out on faith and established Amorous Weddings and Events by Stephanie LLC, it’s safe to assume that Chandler, Arizona entrepreneur Stephanie White seems well on her way to achieving such a lofty ambition — much sooner than later.

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made since she diligently stepped out on faith and established Amorous Weddings and Events by Stephanie LLC, it’s safe to assume that White seems well on her way to achieving such a lofty ambition — much sooner than later.

Widely known mostly as a global wedding and event planner, White, 41, has become a fixture as a professional designer, one who has made a name for herself, considering her talents have been nothing short of remarkable, particularly for corporate events.

With nearly a decade of experience in event planning, White also specializes in cultural theme events.

While her event planning gifts and talents are things of beauty, White would be the first to admit that her business didn’t merely evolve as an overnight success.

In fact, long before her Chandler, Arizona-based Amorous Weddings and Events by Stephanie LLC had become what it is today, White recalls like yesterday those times she had to strategically devise ways to appropriately find her niche in what is steadily becoming an ever-so-competitive industry.


MORE ON STEPHANIE WHITE’S BUSINESS: https://www.amorousweddingsandevents.com/

“It has not always been good, because I have had my share of ups and downs,” White, a native of San Antonio, said. “I made sure I at least kept my business afloat. I started my business, because I have always had a passion for helping others. I enjoyed planning events and get-togethers when I was younger. I decided to become a wedding planner after I was told by another planner I was getting better deals than she was for my own wedding at the time. I thought about it and decided to give it a shot.”

To her credit, White — who holds a Criminal Justice degree from Arizona State — hasn’t looked back since. If nothing else, she’s going to great lengths to promote and enhance an event planning business that is attracting more of a global presence.

Never mind the potentially fatal encounter that transpired some two years ago.

NEAR TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH — As White had ultimately realize during what appeared to be a dark season in her life, God was only trying and challenging her faith in ways she never imagine, in ways that were accompanied by a long periods of temporary inconveniences.

“My business took a huge down fall about two years ago when my family member was in a car accident,” White, who also holds an MBA in Human Resources Management from the University of Phoenix, explained. “It was devastating to both of my kids and our dog, Torpedo. I had to care for this family member and, boy, it was very hard to do.”

As White had ultimately realize during what appeared to be a dark season in her life, God was only trying and challenging her faith in ways she never envisioned, in ways that were accompanied by seemingly long periods of temporary inconveniences.

“Between sleeping at the hospital and managing home, it was too much to bare,” White recalled. “My daughter is 13 and son is 20. We had a long way to go, but I still tried to manage everything as a single mother.”

For White and her family, things would become seemingly more unbearable before they eventually took a turn for the better.

ON THE RIGHT PATH — To her credit, White — who holds a Criminal Justice degree from Arizona State — hasn’t looked back since. If nothing else, she’s going to great lengths to promote and enhance an events planning business that is attracting more of a global presence.

“During the same year of the accident, I had moved about four times,” White recalled. “We were staying at friends’ houses, and sometimes, I slept in the car with my dog while my daughter was at her friend’s house. It was cold and some nights were long nights.”

Still, giving up wasn’t merely an option, although the thought had apparently crossed White’s mind. Then  again, amongst the things with which she had to come to grips was that she had two children and the family pet depending on her — relying on her to stay strong, even when being strong was her only choice.


“I oftentimes thought I should just give up and run away. But I knew my kids needed me to be strong, so I carried on with tears in my eyes, not knowing where the next meal was going to be. I was good at hiding from my close friends. This was another eye-opener…people who I thought were there to support me never responded back to me. I was at my lowest and needed help, not a handout, but help figuring out what to do.” — Stephanie White 


Even at her lowest point, even while being gripped and saddled by arguably the darkest season of her life, even when it seemed her faith was bleak and she struggled with declaring, “the hell with all of this turmoil,” God had eventually came to her rescue, thus provided her family — and the family pet — a way of escape.

GOD’S PLAN — With an itinerary that includes hosting bridal shows in early 2019 in Arizona, Florida, Maryland, and California, say this about White: she’s functioning mightily in her element with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“How many know when God has you standing still you stand, (you’ve got to) know he is God?” said White, sharing a setback-to-comeback story for the ages. “So I stood there in my tears. God moved. I soon had a place to stay.”

Fast forward a couple of years later, White was eventually introduced to divine purpose as God continued to show Himself strong.

“When I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree, I knew I needed to have a business,” White said. “I was the first one in my family who had a Business degree and the second to have a degree, period. This was my game changer. I was in it to win it.”

Much to her delight, she’s been winning ever since.

So have her children. Oh, and the dog, too.

With an itinerary that includes hosting bridal shows in early 2019 in Arizona, Florida, Maryland, and California, say this about White: she’s functioning mightily in her element with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“It is imperative for me to esteem and inspire others daily, because that is my purpose in life,” White said. “I have been through so much by my own choices. I have had a lot of heart breaks. This time, it’s about God and others.”

Not to mention her children.

Oh, and the dog, too.

Dallas actress Ash’Lee Priscilla making a name for herself in a career that spans two decades

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


DALLAS — Ash’Lee Priscilla doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s diligently working her way toward ensuring that two of her major ambitions come to fruition.

“My ultimate goal is to win an Oscar an open a fine arts college,” Ash’Lee Priscilla told Making Headline News this week.

REMEMBER THE NAME — Much to her delight, she’s not only appropriately discovered her passion and purpose in her selected industry but, because she’s in the prime of her career, it’s safe to assume that Dallas’ Ash’Lee Priscilla’s best and brightest days as an actress are well ahead of her.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Ash’Lee Priscilla is destined to make such monumental dreams realities, look no further than the continuous progress and strides she’s made since delving off into the ever-so-competitive industry as an actress.

For starters, the 27-year-old Ash’Lee Priscilla will take yet another step toward making her presence felt in her element when she stars in a couple of compelling upcoming shows, most notably the Burning Flame on November 25 at the Plaza Arts Center (located at 1115 Fourth Avenue in nearby Carrollton, Texas), a play that’s written by Corta Ish and directed by Jennifer Sands.

A STAR IS BORN — A graduate of Grambling State University, Ash’Lee Priscilla will star in a couple of compelling upcoming shows, most notably the Burning Flame on November 25 at the Plaza Arts Center (located at 1115 Fourth Avenue in nearby Carrollton, Texas), a play that’s written by Corta Ish and directed by Jennifer Sands.

Not to be outdone, Ash’Lee Priscilla will star as the character Zori in the informative, drama-filled play entitled, Why Women Trip, which will take place December 8, at The Black Academy of Arts and Letters, located at 650 South Griffin Street in Dallas.

All things considered and to her credit, these forthcoming shows essentially are favorable steps for this young actress, whose career undoubtedly is headed in the right direction.

“I have been acting since I was six years old,” Ash’Lee Priscilla, a native of Dallas, said.

Much to her delight, she’s not only appropriately discovered her passion and purpose in her selected industry, but because she’s in the prime of her career, it’s safe to assume that Ash’Lee Priscilla’s best and brightest days as an actress are well ahead of her.

PUTTING IN WORK — An acting tenure that spans more than two decades, Ash’Lee Priscilla’s skills were initially discovered when began acting and competing in a local theater, she recalls.

So remember the name — Ash’Lee Priscilla.

An acting tenure that spans more than two decades, Ash’Lee Priscilla’s skills were initially discovered when began acting and competing in a local theater, she recalls.

“My mother would register me in oratorical contest at my church and school,” said Ash’Lee Priscilla, a 2009 graduate of Dallas’ Booker T. Washington High School for The Performing and Visual Arts. “Every time I competed I won. That’s when I realized I had a gift.”

Fortunately for this young, vibrant actress – who’s armed with a wealth of talent and beauty — her gift has, by all accounts, made room for her.

So much, in fact, that she’s diligently working her way toward ensuring that two of her major ambitions come to fruition.

DREAM CHASING — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Ash’Lee Priscilla is destined to make such monumental dreams realities, look no further than the continuous progress and strides she’s made since delving off into the ever-so-competitive industry as an actress.

So remember the name — Ash’Lee Priscilla.


“The acting industry is a very competitive industry, so competing in competitions while I was younger prepared me for rejection and success. I don’t believe in giving up on your dreams, so determination has propelled me to pursue a career in acting.” — Ash’Lee Priscilla


A career that has existed for some two decades and counting.

So far, so good for this proud Grambling State University alum, who’s going to great lengths to ensure that she remains relevant in an industry whereby it seems the competition grows stiffer by the day.

For what it’s worth, Ash’Lee Priscilla seems to be handing the competitive side of acting rather masterfully, in large part because of her solid competitive nature, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-break faith.

DESTINY STEPS — For what it’s worth, Ash’Lee Priscilla seems to be handing the competitive side of acting rather masterfully, in large part because of her solid competitive nature, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-break faith.

“What I like the most about being an actress is the power to minister to other people through entertainment,” said Ash’Lee Priscilla, whose immeasurable talents have been put on display in such places as Louisiana, Georgia, California, North Carolina, and New York, among other establishments. “Acting is ministry as well as therapy, because I can escape from my own issues in life and portray someone else’s life or story.

“I truly believe I was born with the ability to change people live through entertainment.”

Just like those actresses and actors to whom she looks up, most notably Cicely Tyson, Angela Basset, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Ntzoke Shange, Denzel Washington, and Will Smith, among others.

“My mission is to be an inspiration to many people throughout my whole life,” said Ash’Lee Priscilla, adding that mother, Teresa Lackey, and a host of theater instructors have played major roles in her acting career. “I was created to educate the world…you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you.”

That, after all, goes to show that we had better remember the name — Ash’Lee Priscilla.

Louisiana author Brenda Robinson obeys God’s Voice, savors her new book come to pass

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES BRENDA RAY ROBINSON 


For Brenda Ray Robinson, her much-anticipated breakthrough came wrapped up in a spiritual confession, of sorts.

“God spoke to me through my healing process three years ago, but I ignored His voice,” Robinson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the pivotal and memorable events that had ultimately given way to her having delved off into the competitive world of authorship. “I was hurt and shame. I didn’t want the world to know my business.”

What Robinson had eventually discovered, meanwhile, was that God wasn’t merely commanding that she tell all of her personal business.

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED — And so it came to pass in December 2017 that Brenda Ray Robinson, a Shreveport, Louisiana-based author had witnessed the ceremonious release of her book entitled, “A Grace Filled Marriage: Marriage On A Mission.”

Rather, His strategic plan for her was that she devise ways to help advance the kingdom through her assortment of emotionally-driven and awe-inspiring testimonies.

And so it came to pass in December 2017 that Robinson, a Shreveport, Louisiana-based author, had witnessed the ceremonious release of her book entitled, “A Grace Filled Marriage: Marriage On A Mission.”

“It was enough that the few people knew (of my trying situation), but not the world,” Robinson said. “God told me to write and He will heal me.”

And just as He always does, God did just that.

“God told me He will prepare me for the purpose (of my book),” Robinson said. “I kept on writing and listening to sermons on marriage and infidelity.”

As time progressed, coupled with Robinson’s fervent act of obedience, God’s steadfastly began to heal and mature and, much to her delight, He began to bless her mightily for such a time as now.

Never mind that during extended period of time, she still managed to harbor a spirit of hardheadedness.

IF GOD SAID IT, THAT SETTLES IT — The very moment Robinson had effectively elected to follow God’s instructions, that essentially jump-started what has undoubtedly transformed into a much-anticipated harvest season.

“I still said, ‘Oh no, I won’t do it,’” Robinson said. “It took me two years to finally obey God’s voice. God said, ‘Didn’t I tell you everything will be okay and to have the book out by 201(7)?’ God told me to take the 7 out of 17 and that meant completion and 201(8) will be new beginning.”


And the rest, as they say, was history.

The very moment Robinson had effectively elected to follow God’s instructions, that essentially jump-started what has undoubtedly transformed into a much-anticipated harvest season.

Credit her for having finally stepping aside and letting God be God.

TEARS OF JOY — For Louisiana author and businesswoman Brenda Ray Robinson, her much-anticipated breakthrough came wrapped up in a spiritual confession, of sorts.

“God will never leave nor forsake you,” said Robinson, uttering the familiar, yet powerful words that make up Deuteronomy 31:6. “We have to know Gods voice and obey. Everything happens for a reason and a season. You have to go through the process to get to the purpose.”

To her credit, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Robinson has appropriately discovered her purpose amid arguably the most tumultuous season of her life.

A book that is comprised of 98 pages in length, Robinson’s “A Grace Filled Marriage: Marriage On A Mission” is designed in large part to help encourage and equip couples to overcome the issues in their marriage, as mentioned in a synopsis of the book at Amazon.com.

“Through the power of forgiveness and the rekindling of passion and purpose in marriage, they are confident that marriages can survive anything through the word of God and that passion can be restored,” said an Amazon.com spokesperson for Robinson’s “A Grace Filled Marriage: Marriage On A Mission.”

Since the release of her new book, Robinson has become the beneficiary of as assortment of rave reviews.

OH TASTE AND SEE — To her credit, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Robinson has appropriately discovered her purpose amid arguably the most tumultuous season of her life.

Thank God she was determined to possess a breakthrough even when reaping a breakthrough seemed very much farfetched.

“I wanted to let go, but God said, ‘No, I got you,’” Robinson recalled. “God said, ‘I will bless you and your way will be smooth.’ God let me know that He will comfort me and give me the strength to carry out this task so (my husband and I) can be a blessing to help other marriages and relationships heal.

“God gave me the title alone with the chapters that will fit my story and help heal hearts.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for His people a way of escape.

Credit Robinson for having finally stepping aside and letting God be God.

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE GREENE RHODES

“(I want) to see more nurses fulfilled by their purpose,” Rhodes, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining her mission that has benefited her mightily as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.

A native of St Petersburg, Florida who boasts a solid career as a registered nurse, Rhodes is the mastermind by an immeasurable coaching business, which allows her to inspire and empower nurses into entrepreneurship.

“(I have) the desire to see nurses fulfill their dreams and passion outside of the hospital,” said Rhodes, explaining how her competitive drive in life has helped propel her for her business venture. “We have so much to offer. I love the freedom it brings and the purpose it fulfills.”

MAJOR CAREER MILESTONE — In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable.

That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

Comprised of 220 pages, Rhodes’ “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology” is centered mostly on the spiritually-enhancing subject that is victory, most notably how victory has been commonly defined as what she describes as the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist.

“In life, many of us have had to triumph over trials and tribulations to meet a particular goal in life,” said a spokesperson for Rhodes recently-released book at Amazon.com. “Those who do not allow hardships to defeat them have been known as overcomers. When it comes to becoming a nurse or enduring a nursing career, it is known that the schooling is rigorous, the work is tough, the shifts are long and there are some nights that we cannot sleep due to thinking about the shift before. This anthology was created to inspire women, nurses and future nurses to not give up when hard times come. You see, after the rain comes the sunshine.”

A pretty empowering synopsis of a scintillating written document that will be on display when Rhodes hosts her fourth book signing, this time on Saturday, October 20 at a Tampa-area Barnes And Noble.

“We’ll also be launching my 2nd Annual Nurses Book Drop, (during which) I (introduce) 10 nurses as authors,” Rhodes said. “Last year’s event was a huge success.”

A coaching business that went into full operations in November 2016, Rhodes emphasized, among other things, that her sustained success has come to fruition, courtesy of her fervent desire to esteem and inspire others daily.

TEAM RHODES — For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable. That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well.” — Michelle Greene Rhodes


A business venture that mostly accommodates women ranging in ages 28 to 48, Rhodes has been afforded the golden opportunity to put her work-related gifts on display in a variety of places, even as far as in the Bahamas.

Interestingly, in May 2019, she will be empowering women in Paris, France along with internationally-acclaimed speaker, Cheryl Wood.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well,” Rhodes said. 

Now we know why she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

VOTE FOR KIMBERLY THOMPSON HERE: https://inkedcover.com/2018/kimberly-glass

SHE NEEDS YOUR VOTE — Credit Jackson, Mississippi native Kimberly Thompson for essentially having adopted a winning feeling as she vies for being named the cover tattoo model for Ink Magazine.

A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential global exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

“Modeling is a career that I have always dreamed of doing,” Thompson explained. “It wasn’t until recently that I made up my mind to take the chance to pursue it.”

For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-pressed to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

TURNING HEADS — A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

For starters, she’s clinging to an impressive third place spot in her selected group, one that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

“In order for me to stay in this competition, I have to find ways to increase my votes,” Thompson said without hesitation, yet with such great optimism.

The second round of voting is currently taking place and ends October 9.

If Thompson advances to the third round, she will have emerged as one of 20 models who will still be alive to grace the front cover of Ink.


SO FAR, SO GOOD — Thompson is clinging to an impressive third place in her selected group that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

Only 10 contestants will advance to the fourth round, something Thompson is hopeful she manages to pull off.

Of course, she will need some much-needed help — and votes — from those who have supported her since she elected to delve off into modeling, since she had finally come to grips with the notion that maybe, just maybe she can enjoy a pretty amazing career in this industry.


“You can sometimes be your own worst enemy by putting limitations on yourself. I am just realizing that this was something that I was doing to myself. I have come to the realization that life is what you make it. The mind is a powerful thing.” — Professional Model Kimberly Thompson 


For what it’s worth, that she has already staged an impressive showing in the Ink Magazine contest is a testament of her overall body of work in such a brief timeframe as model.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — For Thompson if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Everyone in life will have a story to tell,” said Thompson, who holds an Associate Degree in Science from Holmes Community College and an RN Associate Degree from Meridian Community College. “As you get older, you began to realize that you never stop learning or striving for something in life. I will never stop striving to better myself.

“The most important testament I have learned is to love all of me,” Thompson added. “This includes my flaws as well as my imperfections. Many of us are scared to have imperfections. But imperfections are used to make you the person you are meant to be. It is a game changer.”

NEW MODEL ON THE BLOCK — For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-press to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

For Thompson, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Going on age 40, I am starting a new beginning in my life,” Thompson said. A life filled with no walls and limitless possibilities. My phoenix tattoo is a representation of my rebirth. I will continue to rise through the ashes and make my dreams a reality.”

Regardless of the outcome of this contest.

In the meantime, she’s still very much in the running. 

So go vote.

Virginia author LaShana Lloyd conquers slew of odds, shares testimonies in awe-inspiring books

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES LASHANA LLOYD 


LaShana Lloyd undoubtedly aspires daily to live and savor a faith led life.

Literally and figuratively.

Consider, for instance, how Lloyd essentially drove home such an intriguing notion by way of a rather compelling Facebook post shortly after 8 a.m. EST on Sunday.

Said Lloyd in a spirited, thought-provoking post that was comprised of what she dubbed, “True Words of Wisdom:”


SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — A well-respected military veteran, LaShana Lloyd is accomplished businesswoman and author, who has been blessed — and stayed true to herself — mightily, considering she has made her presence in the ever-so-popular world of authorship.

People will only have as much control as you allow them to have. If you keep letting a person hurt you, they will only hurt you more. If you keep letting a person use you, they will not stop using you. If you allow a person to get comfortable with disrespecting you, there’s a high possibility that they will not leave that place of acting like that toward you anytime soon. But the antidote to all of these problems and those similar to these is putting a stop to it. It’s as simple as that. When you understand who you are and how valuable of a person you are, you will no longer choose to settle for being treated less than that. Grow into the confidence God has given you and you will grow into the person He has created you to be, a person of worth.


Some pretty dauntless and awe-inspiring words by a devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, has remained true to herself both in the natural and spirit.

A well-respected military veteran, Lloyd is accomplished Woodbridge, Virginia businesswoman and author, who has been blessed — and stayed true to herself — mightily, considering she has made her presence in the ever-so-popular world of authorship.

A native of Clio, South Carolina, Lloyd is amongst 22 writers who joined forces to compose the book entitled, “You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through,” a collaborative and informative written document whereby they miraculously spoke about how God steered them from what they described as pain to purpose.

For Lloyd, her assortment of emotionally-driven, life-changing testimonies have benefited and enhanced not only her faith walk with God, but rather those whom, by all accounts, have endured similar experiences.

“To give my testimonies about how I overcame witnessing my father abuse my mother, being sexually abused as a child, and being black balled from the military,” said Lloyd, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, when asked what is her purpose for choosing to collaborate last summer with a host of authors to compose You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through.

PURCHASE LASHANA LLOYD’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Whats-Blocking-Your-Confidence-Effective/dp/1946756350/

Not to be outdone, Lloyd is also responsible for having written yet another remarkably compelling book, this one entitled, “What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears.”

Powered by Rejoice Essential Publishing, Lloyd’s “What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears” was officially released on August 11, 2018, and is centered largely on this Christian-based writer providing some pertinent information, most notably that which fear, as well as the essential tools needed to walk in the confidence that God has given us.

This book also speaks about a great deal of transparency shared by Lloyd, particularly during which she was once bound by fear and how God miraculously delivered her from it.

PURCHASE LASHANA’S BOOK HERE, TOO: https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/whats-blocking-your-confidence-lashana-lloyd/1129301054


THE ROMANS 8:18 FACTOR — A native of Clio, South Carolina, Lloyd is amongst 22 writers who joined forces to compose the book entitled, “You Have No Idea The Hell I’ve Been Through,” a collaborative and informative written document whereby they miraculously spoke about how God steered them from what they described as pain to purpose.

“There is hope for those who believe that living in fear is the way of life,” said a spokesperson in a detailed breakdown of Lloyd’s What’s Blocking Your Confidence: Effective Ways To Conquer Your Fears at Amazon.com. “You no longer have to be bound by fear. You can be set free. In this book, you will understand what fear is, and how the enemy (satan) is using fear against you. Find out what happens when you allow fear to override your faith.”

As expected, the feedback since the much-anticipated releases of these books have been overwhelmingly favorable, Lloyd acknowledged.

BASKING IN GOD’S GLORY — As expected, the feedback since the much-anticipated releases of these books have been overwhelmingly favorable, Lloyd acknowledged.

“I was blown away at how so many women told me my story touched them,” Lloyd said. “They were shocked at the things I had went through and how God was able to heal me from all of the pain, betrayal, and fears that I had gone through. So many women are embarrassed by the challenges they had to face — and that’s exactly what the enemy wants — but because of my transparency, so many women and men can be set free, stay free, and receive the confidence that God has for them.”

Having accepted what she labels her God-mandated calling to authorship in 2015, Lloyd doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is using her as a vessel to write in such a fashion that her immeasurable gifts would ultimately to draw others to or back to Him.

“The Father told me that He did not allow me to go through everything that I went through to watch me suffer,” said Lloyd, adding that she’s currently fielding speaking engagement requests to promote of her books. “He allowed me to go through everything that I have gone through so that it can be used to help others, especially women. I have a passion to encourage women all over the world.

THE LORD’S DOING — Having accepted what she labels her God-mandated calling to authorship in 2015, Lloyd doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is using her as a vessel to write in such a fashion that her immeasurable gifts would ultimately to draw others to or back to Him.

“Encouraging others with the words that I write and speak is how I am able to not only become stronger every time I release these words, but how others can gain the strength and confidence that they need so that their testimony can come forth as well.”

Eloquently said by this devout woman of faith, one who undoubtedly aspires daily to live and savor a faith led life.

Is Connecticut businesswoman Dareesha Hardy the credit repair industry’s best kept secret?

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DAREESHA HARDY


Don’t let her age fool you.

Because for a young businesswoman, Dareesha Hardy is on the move.

Not only is she on a quest to fulfill the purpose for which God created her, but she’s destined to devise ways to reach back and help others follow suit.

“The competitive drive in life propelled me for my business venture,” Hardy, a 28-year-old entrepreneur, told Making Headline News during an interview this week from New Haven, Connecticut. “I understand that living isn’t for the weak and, in order to change your current situation, you have to change your current situation. Only the hunters eat well. Everyone else pretty much just gets whatever is left over.”


FINANCIAL POWERHOUSE

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST — Having appropriately found her niche in what has emerged as an overwhelmingly competitive industry, New Haven, Connecticut businesswoman Dareesha Hardy doesn’t shy away from the notion that she deemed it essential to delve off into the credit repair universe for one major reason: financial survival.

Some pretty strong and remarkably compelling words of wisdom offered by this young and opportunistic businesswoman, who is widely known as an up-and-coming multifaceted entrepreneur, most notably a Credit Repair Specialist.

Having appropriately found her niche in what has emerged as an overwhelmingly competitive industry, Hardy doesn’t shy away from the notion that she deemed it essential to delve off into the credit repair universe for one major reason: financial survival.

“I know what it is to survive,” said Hardy, a native of New Haven who is widely known also a the ‘Financial Powerhouse.’ “Now I’m ready to start thriving. If you’re not willing to put in the work to create and build the life you want for yourself, you will always live the life given to you. “

For Hardy, amongst the reasons she’s already enjoying sustained success while functioning in her element is that she customarily operates her venture with this vital notion in mind, a trend that has given away to her being a woman on the move.

So don’t let her young age fool you.

“I keep all of this in mind in regards to my business,” Hardy said of her fervent desire and objective to create and build the life she wants. “I knew (starting a business venture), it wasn’t going to be easy or always a clear path, but I made up my mind I was going to see my vision through.”

To her credit, Hardy is not only seeing her vision come full circle but, most importantly, she has adopted the notion that suggest she refuses to simply go through the motions while steadily operating in such a popular industry.

In a nutshell, even as a relatively newcomer to the credit repair world, Hardy is aggressively seeking ways to stand out amongst those who are in dire need of having their credit score fixed.

REFOCUSING HER FOCUS — For Hardy, amongst the reasons she’s already enjoying sustained success while functioning in her element is that she customarily operates her venture with her key, business-relates objectives in mind, a trend that has given away to her being a woman on the move.

“What I enjoy most is the educational aspect,” said Hardy, who has been a credit repair specialist for approximately a year and a half. “Knowledge really is a key fundamental to your quality of living, then follows financial health. Growing up, I didn’t have much knowledge on financial literacy, but now that I do.”

Now that she’s acquired such pivotal financial knowledge, Hardy has become committed to passing it along to others.

“I’m blessed to be able to educate generations before me that didn’t know what I now know and to educate, as well prepare the generations to come,” Hardy said. “Financial literacy and financial health determines your quality of living and, unfortunately, too many are living poor quality of lives. I hope to change that.”

Eloquently said by a young, vibrant businesswoman, who’s convinced arguably her best and brightest days in entrepreneurship are well ahead of her.

“I’ve been local with my business so far, but I’ve been expanding and hope to grow a nationwide team,” said Hardy, whose venture caters to individuals ranging in ages 18 to 55. “My personal mission in my business is to educate the masses and to be a change agent, helping people shift their mindset about finances, assets, and capital building.”

Who better to create financial change in such an extremely competitive industry than young entrepreneur, who thought it necessary in early 2017 to take a much-needed leap of faith?

“Honestly, I didn’t have anyone to look up to in my field,” Hardy said. “I decided to become whom I wish I had to look up to. Once I realized the lack of knowledge and resources in my community, I seen the necessity and took the opportunity to create a solution that I believe will enhance the livelihood of our nation.”

Talk about having immediate impact while making major moves in entrepreneurship.

She’s Dareesha Hardy.

She’s only 28 years old.

DESTINY STEPS — Not only is Hardy on a quest to fulfill the purpose for which God created her, but she’s destined to devise ways to reach back and help others follow suit.

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in such a brief time as a businesswoman, don’t let her age fool you.

“It is imperative that I esteem and inspire others daily because, simply, we need it,” Hardy said. “When I’m making my social media posts or talking to people, I have to read what I said and listen to my own words. There are too many negative images and narratives that have people feeling stuck, beat down and incapable.”

For what it’s worth, age has nothing to do with it, Hardy hinted.

“I want to be that narrative, that image that keeps someone in the fight for a better life,” Hardy said. “Sometimes, I’m in need of the very same esteem and inspiration. I hope once I’m able to share my story with the world, many will say because I made it, they can and will.”
