Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

Detroit business couple Roderick and Mablene Gillison advancing the kingdom as resourceful recovery coaches


Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV)


STANDING IN AGREEMENT 

GOD-ORDERED STEPS — Together, the inseparable union between Roderick and Mablene Gillison is so superabundant and close-knit that this godly couple deemed it essential to collectively established a business venture that would not only benefit them mightily, but, most importantly, it would help enrich and advance the kingdom.

Roderick loves his wife to the moon and back.

Mablene undoubtedly shares the same sentiments.

Together, the inseparable union between Roderick and Mablene Gillison is so superabundant and close-knit that this godly couple deemed it essential to collectively established a business venture that would not only benefit them mightily, but, most importantly, it would help enrich and advance the kingdom.
A native of Detroit, Roderick Gillison is a longtime real estate broker whom, along with his wife of 27 years, is state licensed recovery coach, whereby they are routinely afforded the golden opportunity to offer strategic support and assistance, particularly through helping people make the necessary recoveries that will ultimately prove beneficial to them.
Aside from functioning as a dedicated business couple to complement their longstanding union, Gillison is the Founder of the Recovery Today Television Network, an awe-inspiring milestone that is a far cry from his season in the wilderness, during which he was once saddled by drug and alcohol additions.

“A recovery coach is a person who has lived experiences and can identify with the peers he or she is serving,” Roderick Gillison told Making Headline News this week.

A venture that is powered by Roderick’s wealth of experience as a licensed minister of the gospel, the Gillisons’ recovery coaching endeavor is centered largely on aiding others to press and navigate toward a rewarding, successful future, not to recall and dwell on their turbulent, discomforting past, the couple acknowledged.

“Recovery means to gain back what was lost,” Roderick Gillison said. We offer support, assistance in helping persons to make a recovery that will work for them.”

AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

Interestingly and to their distinctly unique credit, the Gillisons’ Christian-based venture has become a fixture for attracting and accommodating today’s youth — or these millennial.

“We are trying to show the young generation it’s not what you do, it’s why you do what you do,” said Roderick Gillison, who accepted his calling to engaging in ministerial work in 1995.

Beloved members of Detroit’s historic After Christ Christian Center — under the leadership of Apostle Rudolph and Kingdom Recovery Ministries founder, Pastor Lois Ellis — Roderick Gillison credit these notable clergymen for greatly steering him on the right path in ministry, as well as in the business sector.

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Beloved members of Detroit’s historic After Christ Christian Center — under the leadership of Apostle Rudolph and Kingdom Recovery Ministries founder, Pastor Lois Ellis — Roderick Gillison credit these notable clergymen for greatly steering him on the right path in ministry, as well as in the business sector.

“These are my pastors, whom I love dearly,” Roderick Gillison said. “They accepted me and my family in 1995 at the lowest times in my life when I was struggling and hurt, and with their love and prayers, they raised us up to be who we are today — overcomers in Christ.”

Aside from functioning as a dedicated business couple to complement their longstanding union, Gillison is the Founder of the Recovery Today Television Network, an awe-inspiring milestone that is a far cry from his season in the dreaded wilderness, during which he was once saddled by drug and alcohol addictions.

RODERICK’S COVERING 

POWERFUL WORDS —– “Having my husband for 27 years as a business partner gives me the ability to grow, not only as a friend, partner, and lover,” Mablene Gillison said. “We encourage each other in the good and bad times. Things I can’t see and hear, I have the man I trust to help me navigate through life’s situations. In this partnership, it teaches us to pray, love, forgive, and celebrate life daily.”

But God…Whom this devout man of faith had ultimately discovered would emerge as the Author and Finisher of his faith.

Talk about a dramatic comeback from after having endured a major and potentially life-threatening setback.

“I’m working in the field that I once fell victim to,” said Roderick Gillison, recalling his life-changing testimony for probably the umpteenth time, yet for all the right reasons.

Aside for the valiant support of his spiritually coverings, he has his wife to thank more than anything.

“My wife’s impact as a business partner is very special,” Roderick Gillison said. ‘Not only is she a wife, but first and foremost, she’s my friend. (The fact) we can achieve and love each other at the same time is mind blowing to me. Our marriage of 27 years is based upon (the Biblical passage) Amos 3:3, which reads: How can two walk together except they be agreed? She knows everything about me…how I think, how I’m feeling…man, she is definitely a gift from God. None of this would be possible without her.”

WE ALL IN — A venture that is powered by his wealth of experience as a licensed minister of the gospel, the Gillisons’ recovery coaching endeavor is centered largely on aiding others to press and navigate toward a rewarding, successful future, not to recall and dwell on their turbulent, discomforting past, the couple acknowledged.

Of course, Mablene Gillison likewise has a few favorable pleasantries to pass along while assessing her husband’s immeasurable impact as a business partner.

“Having my husband for 27 years as a business partner gives me the ability to grow, not only as a friend, partner, and lover,” Mablene Gillison said. “We encourage each other in the good and bad times. Things I can’t see and hear, I have the man I trust to help me navigate through life’s situations. In this partnership, it teaches us to pray, love, forgive, and celebrate life daily.”

With God, their Helper, steering the way.

Detroit author Taynia A. Coleman’s featured book is a microcosm of her God-mandated purpose

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2019 SPECIAL REPORT

 


Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. (Ecclesiastes 4:9 NIV)


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — Taynia A. Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” is an awe-inspiring, informative written document in which she strives diligently to be rather forthright and direct with her sizable reading audience.

To her credit and for the betterment of relationship enhancing, Taynia A. Coleman wrote a book in which arguably her chief focus was to — for a lack of better words — keep it 100.

In a nutshell, Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” is an awe-inspiring, informative written document in which she strives diligently to be rather forthright and direct with her sizable reading audience.
“God first gave me the vision to start a family and relationship blog called, ‘Destined With A Purpose,’” Coleman told Making Headline News this week. “Due to the fact I was married for 10 years and only three of the years were good years, I needed an outlet, which later became a prayer relationship and communication book.”

BUY TAYNIA COLEMAN’S BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/destinedwithapurpose/

A book that is comprised of 54 pages, Coleman began assembling “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” sometime in late 2016 and needed a little less than two years to complete a project she constructed while enduring arguably a downtrodden, discomforting season of her life.

A native of Detroit, Coleman’s featured book is accompanied by “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: The Journal.”

“This journal was created with the prayers from the book in order to get your prayer life going for your relationship,” a spokesperson for Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” said in a detailed synopsis of her book at Barnes & Noble online. “It includes space for you to write out your own prayers and also a journaling room. When faced with problems with your significant other, you start wondering how to get things back on the right track and it is never easy. The powerful prayers and the prayers of your own that is in this journal are designed to help get your relationship back on the right path.”

As Coleman explained, she wrote her relationship-enhancing book during a time in which “I felt like I was by myself at every angle,” she recalled.

“There were no how to, or what to do when this happen in your relationship type of books,” said Coleman, whose authorship debut arose amid a divorce. “I mean, there were books, but none of them resonated with my spirit. I needed something raw and real. If I couldn’t find the help I needed, I wanted to be the help someone else may need.”

BUT GOD — As Coleman explained, she wrote her relationship-enhancing book during a time in which “I felt like I was by myself at every angle,” she recalled.

To her credit and for the betterment of building up her spirit man and drawing closer to Almighty God, Coleman’s book has become an influential GPS system, of sorts, particularly as it relates to helping others steer their way from a sense of defeat to a season that’s accompanied a God-manifested victory.

“The purpose of this book is to help individuals and couples heal in order to communicate and love effectively,” Coleman, a notable Relationship Coach, explained. “It is for all levels of relationships, as well to help anyone that is still broken from a relationship. The prayers at the end of each chapter are powerful.

A book that is comprised of 54 pages, Coleman began assembling “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” sometime in late 2016 and needed a little less than two years to complete a project she constructed while enduring arguably a downtrodden, discomforting season of her life.

“These books are to help heal the broken hearted through prayers, it is to let them know that they too can go from broken to complete if they would trust God in and through the process,” Coleman continued. “It is to let them know that in those very dark days that there is better on the other side, but they have to have faith and believe God.”

Much like this Motor City-based writer and accomplished businesswoman had to, particularly during a time her faith had been tried and tested unlike never before.

But God…

PEACE AND BLESSINGS — All things considered, because Coleman stuck with God by staying in faith, the purpose for which she has been created is still being fulfilled, all the while she possesses the peace that surpasses understanding in the process.

“I believe my writings will help heal people emotionally and physically from heart break and depression,” Coleman said without hesitation. “I want them to know even though they may feel alone, they don’t have to go through the process alone.”

After all, two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor, according to scripture.

“God created me to help heal the brokenhearted,” said Coleman, adding that the feedback since the release of “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” has been overwhelmingly favorable. “He took me through a process that only the strong could survive.”

And to think, the devil thought he had her.

But God…

“I almost lost my mind, dealing with the damaged and misfit marriage that I lost my way,” Coleman said. “I lost Taynia.”

All things considered, because Coleman stuck with God by staying in faith, the purpose for which she has been created is still being fulfilled, all the while she possesses the peace that surpasses understanding in the process.

KEEPING IT 100 — “I believe my writings will help heal people emotionally and physically from heart break and depression,” Coleman said without hesitation. “I want them to know even though they may feel alone, they don’t have to go through the process alone.”

“I birthed ‘Destined With A Purpose’ out of pain, because at the time, I felt I had no purpose, but God told me otherwise, so I listened,” Coleman said, “With God’s healing power, He lifted me up and pieced together my broken heart, and now my mission is to help others mend their hearts. I want to show them how to love themselves before trying to love somebody else.”

Talk about a Necessary Breakdown of a book that has emerged a constant must read.

For all the right reasons.

Shreveport’s Raichal Linnear savoring sustained success as an accomplished entrepreneur


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


BLESSED REGARDLESS 

DALLAS — Raichal Linnear isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport, Louisiana.

At the end of the real day, Linnear is destined to make every single day count, is determined to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.
After all, she knows full well she’s owes it to herself to press and navigate toward her purpose.
On purpose.
“I, Raichal, saw a need that I wanted to do more for myself and my family to having a functioning stability to where I can take care of my family and live the lifestyle that’s going to educate myself and learn who is Raichal Linnear as an adult to better herself,” Linnear told Making Headline News this week.

Given the immeasurable strides Linnear has made of late, particularly as a rising entrepreneur, it’s safe to assume she’s steadfastly positioning herself to possess and savor the stability she so desperately seeks.

Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Shreveport-based is a profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.

Talk about stepping outside of her comfort, thus establishing a business venture that figures to garner sustained success, much sooner than later.

A business that is nearing its second year anniversary on September 16, Linnear entrepreneurial resume is also comprised of her assuming the role as a business specialist consultant, whereby she’s aids with a variety of assistance programs such as employment training, educational training and trade, as well as housing assistance programs for plus-sized individuals.

As for Thick Madame Boutique, Linnear’s venture offers an array of business clothing apparels as a retail outlet for business-minded individuals along with royal elegant dresses, as well as casual and African apparels.

Interestingly, Linnear customarily designs her own customized accessories, footwear, and cosmetics.

And then there is Thick Madame Modeling Agency, which is an adult entertainment program exclusively for plus-sized Americans who aspire to delve off into a modeling career as a strategic way to boost their image by way of generating exposure for their branding, Linnear emphasized.

Having credited entertainers Chris Brown and T.I. for inspiring her to start her businesses, Linnear’s said, “Right now, I’m in the progress of having map route to Place Thick Madame Boutique and to see it everywhere. I would love to see it in places such as Atlanta, Georgia, Dallas, Jamaica, Africa, Los Angeles, and Paris.

GOD’S PLAN — Raichal Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Sherveport, Lousiana-based profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.  

Her itinerary includes, among other things, her hosting a business-related shower event and what is known as the Thick Madame Royale Fashion Runway at dates that have yet to be determined.

For what it’s worth, Linnear is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God has blessed her to achieve sustained success as a young businesswoman, who’s convinced her best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

“It is important (to esteem others daily), because I want everyone to know that your past does not defined who you are,” Linnear said. “You are the writer of your story. Where there is an ending, there is a new beginning. Push through your pain and see the Light (God) at the tunnel. For everything you go through, there’s a lesson to be learn, a story to be a testimony.”

Appropriately said, by a progressive, thriving businesswoman, one who isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport.

Dallas/Fort Worth event planner Kimberly Warner carrying on mother’s memory through entrepreneurship


And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? (Romans 8:30-31 NIV)


GOD’S FAITH STEPPER 

DALLAS — In case you know don’t her, Kimberly Warner would like to introduce herself.

“My name is Kimberly Warner and the proud wife of Minister Kevin Warner,” Warner, displaying a smile, told Making Headline News this week.

As if being married to a loving, supportive husband isn’t enough unmerited favor, Warner will be turning the big 5-0 on July 6.
“I’m very excited to meet this milestone in my life,” Warner said.
Much to her delight, that isn’t the only milestone for which Warner is overwhelmingly enthralled.
A native of nearby Fort Worth, Texas, Warner is a rising entrepreneur as owner and CEO of KWarner Events, her up-and-coming DFW-based event planning management company, whose mission includes, among other things, taking clients’ events and making it a rather, festive, jubilant occasion for the best outcome to “wow” the guest at your event, Warner acknowledged.
DESTINY STEPS — A native of nearby Fort Worth, Texas, Kimberly Warner is a rising entrepreneur as owner and CEO of KWarner Events, her up-and-coming DFW-based event planning management company, whose mission includes, among other things, taking clients’ events and making it a rather, festive, jubilant occasion for the best outcome to “wow” the guest at your event, Warner acknowledged.

An accomplished Corporate American professional who assumes an IT Technician position for a local communications company, Warner said it is it due in large part to her competitive drive, coupled with her keen ability to excel that essentially headline her sustained success as a businesswoman.

“I have always been a competitive individual and very determined to succeed in anything I do,” Warner said. “I have never allowed anyone to tell me I can’t do something without trying it for myself.”

Interestingly, even when adversity has surfaced to challenge her faith, there was Warner, finding the strength to fervently demonstrate faith in ways unimaginable.

“When my husband had his accident, I knew it was my turn to shine and let him know, ‘Since you can’t, I will. So, I do,” said Warner, living up to her marriage vows as God’s specifically commands us to.


BUT TICKETS TO THIS EVENT HERE: https://www.ticketor.com/kwarnerevents/upcomingevents?pageid=146039

Fortunately for Warner, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her business during an action-packed summer concert July 5 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. CST at the Courtyard Theater, located at 1509 H Avenue in nearby Plano, Texas.

Having acknowledged that her “pleasured occupation” is functioning as a full- time caregiver to her husband, who was paralyzed amid a freak accident late last year approximately one month before the couple’s first wedding anniversary, Kimberly Warner deemed it essential to become even more resourceful while overseeing the day-to-day operations of her KWarner Events.

A graduate of Arlington’s Sam Houston High School, Warner holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Legal Studies and Advocacy from Southern New Hampshire University.

Not to be outdone, this progressive, thriving entrepreneur is currently studying for the Law School Admission Test (or LSAT) with lofty aspiration s of enrolling in law school.

Talk about doing the necessary things that will greatly enable her to walk in the divine purpose for which she was created.

As for KWarner Events, which was organized in 2016 but went into full operations the following year, Warner said achieving her customer service goals and objectives are extremely imperative.

“What I like most about my business is that it allows me to provide a service to a customer that makes them look like the host of the year, and people will always want to come and be a part of their engagements,” Warner said. “Because I am a hopeless romantic, I love the ‘Just Because’ celebrated moments, picnics, and corporate events that promote giving back to the employees and the community.”

That Warner is a part of a close-knit family has also given way to wealth of entrepreneurial success.

“Family was everything to my mother and we celebrated everything,” Warner said. “No matter how big or small. You name it, it was celebrated. Such great times with that same momentum. I propel to put fun, laughter, and memories to any event.”

Fortunately for Warner, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her business during an action-packed summer concert July 5 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. CST at the Courtyard Theater, located at 1509 H Avenue in nearby Plano, Texas.

An event that will be comprised of an array of fun, entertaining, and laughter, tickets can be purchased at: https://www.ticketor.com/kwarnerevents/upcomingevents?pageid=146039.

Amongst the things about which Warner is grateful is that she’s been blessed to operate her business in her mother’s memory.

“I really had only one person that inspired me to do anything I set my mind to…my mother,” Warner said. “Now that she is gone, I keep the words of wisdom in my mind and heart. She always told me to keep God before and above all that I do and He will see me through in good times and bad.”

“I have never seen myself as a motivator for others as I have been told many times by friends and family that I was, which surprised me tremendously,” Warner said. “I have always treated people the way I want to be treated. So I demand to be treated great since I give it wholeheartedly in return.

“If I have a word of encouragement, I am going to use it for inspiration. If I have a word of wisdom, I share it. If I got it and you need it more than me, it’s yours. That was the foundation in my home and the role model I had to look up to…momma.”

Talk about thorough introduction to a big-hearted, beloved Texas businesswoman.

Detroit author Lakina Fulks connects with her God-given purpose through her newly-produced book


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 NIV)


PURPOSED FOR PAIN

HERE’S WHY — A native of Detroit, Lakina Fulks is the author of the book entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

Amongst the things to which Lakina Fulks can greatly attest is that an array of pain and discomfort typically emerge amid a divorce.

Nevertheless, amongst the notable factors to which she can also substantiate is that if you stay in faith in the wake of a marital dissolution, God can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“It was one day in prayer as I was crying so hard going through a bad divorce that God spoke to me a said write the book now, and in that moment, He gave me the title of the book,” Fulks told Making Headline News this week.

The book to which Fulks is alluding is her newly-assembled written document entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

“When He said, ‘Why,’ I was like, ‘why?’” said Fulks, explaining her vision for composing her recently-released book. “He said in every moment of my life, I always asked why and He will reveal why, and now I know and understand why and I am so grateful.”

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

According to detailed synopsis of “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” at https://www.amazon.com/WHY-young-girls-search-truth/dp/057821055X, Fulks writes that empowerment essentially is within what she describes as a “young girl’s call for help.”

Moreover, she emphasized, “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story.”

SHE’S JUST WARMING UP — A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

Never mind if some will, in fact, find it overwhelmingly difficult to come to grips with the occasionally unfavorable situations and circumstances that often arise in this thing called life.

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

“Even though you don’t understand the reason for your trials and tribulations, there is another side to your pain if you,” said Fulks, when asked what is divine message she’s sending to her audience through her new book. “Your story is meant to help someone coming behind you with a familiar pain. And you have to show them that they too can come out and be healed.

“Most people acknowledge how candid and raw the content is,” Fulks continued. “But the truth is, it’s my story told and some parts (are told) verbatim. And it’s not always easy to read. But once they settle in for the story, most readers say how they are able to find parts of themselves expressed through various characters, and it is freeing knowing that they aren’t alone in some of the things they suffered.”

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

“There are definitely other books that I believe that God will birth out of me, but there is still a growth and healing taking place in me since the release of this book,” Fulks said. “I have started creating a journal to go along with the book that will be available this summer. The idea came when my book was asked to be in a book club and they would like a journal, so now I am doing one.”

Much to her delight, coupled with the divine calling on her life, amongst the things of which Fulks is especially grateful is that she birthed her book out of an act of obedience to God.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story,” Fulks said.

The same God Who can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“All of us are born with a cross that we must bear just like Christ,” Fulks said. “And I suffered a lot as a child and my early adult years. But the awesome thing about God is that all things work together for our good. And this book is a part of the big picture of what I was purposed for. Had I believed that pain was the only part of my life experience, this book would have never come to past. But God….”

She’s got that right.

But God…

Virginia businesswoman Ieshia Leverette goes from ex-felon to well-educated and established entrepreneur


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)


A LIVING TESTIMONY

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Ieshia Nicole Leverette is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles. (Photos By Casandra Loiacono)

For what it’s worth, Ieshia Leverette was only keeping it 100.

“I could have been a statistic,” Leverette, an ex-felon, said during a recent interview with Making Headline News, recalling the slew of the obstacles and hurdles about which she had to clear and overcome during the course of her young life.

“I have seen a lot and overcome a lot by choice and circumstances, but I never let a closed door stop me.”
She’s got that right.
Credit Leverette’s fervent desire and steadfast determination to defy arguably the grandest of odds as the biggest reasons she’s managed to make continuous strides as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.
An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Leverette, 31, is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles.

An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishments around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative of the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into the lives of others.

HOLDING IT DOWN — An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishment around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

“Through being a realtor, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many people from so many different walks of life, and I am most humbly fulfilled when I am able to pour into their lives,” Leverette said. “I am the one they call to celebrate with them, because I impact them in a very real way.”

As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially have become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“I don’t worry about the buying and selling of the home as much as I do in mentoring them, guiding them and helping them see their own potential,” said Leverette, explaining how her competitive drive in life has propelled her to start a host of business ventures. “It’s an unmatched experience they get with me as a person.  Everyone I come across, I tend to affect their life in a very real way, even if they don’t tell me until many years later. I have been called to pour into others’ lives and show them another side of them that they didn’t know existed.”

LEADING BY EXAMPLE — While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative is the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into others’ lives.

To her credit, Leverette certain possesses the education and training, which have contributed mightily to her sustained entrepreneurship success.

A 2005 graduate of Cleveland Height High School — she actually graduated one year early thanks in large part the administration’s approval that allowed her to take additional classes — Leverette enrolled at Cleveland State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations and Advertisement in 2010.

Consequently, she’s enrolled at Argosy University of Hawaii, where she acquired an MBA in Marketing in 2012.

As for her assortment of business ventures that accommodate individuals ranging mostly between the ages of 27 to 55, credit Leverette’s wealth of wisdom, coupled with her spirit of compassion as the reasons those with whom she customarily crosses paths often come away overwhelmingly empowered and encouraged, thus acquiring a new lease on life.

Just like she has ever since she delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.


“My business allows me to watch others become confident in whom they are. I love building tomorrow’s leaders.  I love seeing progression. I am even more enthralled to watch women regain their independence, because we often forget about ourselves taking care of others.” — Virginia Businesswoman Ieshia Leverette


Interestingly, what it all boils down to, Leverette emphasized, is devising way to impact lives — and to it daily.

For the rest of her life.

“To impact lives that would otherwise continue in the same pattern,” said Leverette, when asked what her personal mission is for running the day-to-day operations of her business. “To make people see themselves clearly and with power. To help people stop doubting their abilities. People ask me why I create my own competition, but honestly if you become better, then I’ve done my job.”

An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

STAYING THE COURSE 

DESTINY STEPS — As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially has become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“(I become inspired by) women who have lost their power in a marriage or after having children,” Leverette said. “People who are just as lost and don’t know where to start. It’s really just how my heart operates. I just want people to know all that there is to know about the life they live today and how to maximize that time and make it the most fulfilling.”

Talk about having mounted a dramatic comeback for the ages, from a felon to a successful entrepreneur, one who’s undoubtedly living her best life.

“I am just a woman that got a felony 12 years ago and didn’t let it stop me from becoming who I am today,” Leverette said. “I’ve always fought to overcome any things thrown my way. From having 3 jobs while on a full-time school schedule, to becoming an entrepreneur and dominating a male dominant industry purely off of me being genuine, caring, and motivational to others.”

All the while keeping it 100 in the process.

OMG! Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique’s ‘The Wife Between Us’ is a huge must read

OK-CARING FOR OTHERS

THREE AND COUNTING — To her credit, Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

DALLAS — As if Shanell Monique’s latest book isn’t a massive crowd-pleaser, wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

For what it’s worth, this one figures to leave Shanell Monique’s reading audience on the edge of its seats.

“My reason was to be a voice for other women,” Shanell Monique, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her soon-to-be-released project. “Because we don’t understand why you were chosen to go through the storm, because you don’t understand the power of your blessings that follow, you can’t expect anyone to understand your struggles. To heal a wound you need to stop touching it.”

To her credit, Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

As Shanell Monique emphasized, her divine purpose for having assembled “The Wife Between Us” is centered largely on three strategic words: “Preserve Your Power,” she said with such authority.

Wait, there’s more, this brilliantly creative Oklahoma City-based author acknowledged.

“You can’t be powerful in your money, your love or your happiness if you’re always giving it away,” said Shanell Monique, further alluding to her book’s key points as only she could. “Not everybody and everything is worth your energy.”

Especially when such energy is being taken away — or even eradicated — amid things and situations that could potentially prove devastating to one’s destiny.


“Unplug from negative situations and people. Let them go. Turn them off. Hit delete. Press stop. Press pause. If you want a powerful relationship, stop feeding into negative energy. If you want a powerful paycheck, stop feeding into negative energy at work.” — OKC Author Shanell Monique 


As for life itself, as precious and as fragile it is, Shanell Monique’s got something for women who sense that life is short-changing them.

“If you want a powerful life, stop feeding doubt, fear, and insecurities,” she said. “Somebody needs to give you power. Somebody needs to love you back. Somebody needs to help you. Somebody needs to support you.”

STORY BEHIND THE STORY — Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

Because after all, “Sometimes that person is you,” Shanell Monique said. “Love yourself enough to preserve your power for the people and situations that are worth it. If you preserve your power, you’ll preserve yourself.”

Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

“(That’s) when God really put it on my heart to finish my story,” said Shanell Monique, “and be a voice for women.”

That she’s certainly doing.

So wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

Young Dayton, Ohio businesswoman Tara Brown walking fervently in her purpose as an entrepreneur


I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 NIV)


BROWN HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

DESTINY STEPS — Now that she has overcome an array of odds, now that she is walking fervently in her divine purpose, there’s no turning back for 29-year-old Ohio entrepreneur Tara Brown, who is the owner and CEO of Metiamay Visions.

Tara Brown fielded the question as if she expected it.

“I failed lots of times before getting here,” Brown, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked how her competitive drive fueled her desire to start a business. “I started several other businesses before getting to this point of where I have success. My will to never give up, faith in God, and the determination to never work for anyone again brought me here.”

Now that she’s arrived, now that she has overcome an array of odds, now that she is walking fervently in her divine purpose, there’s no turning back for this 29-year-old entrepreneur, who is the owner and CEO of Metiamay Visions.

MORE ON TARA BROWN’S BUSINESS: https://metiamayvisions.com/

A business that officially went into operations earlier this year, Brown’s Dayton, Ohio-based Metiamay Visions has become a globally-acclaimed fixture as the home of professional refined designs and images.

You name it, her company does it, creating virtually everything from:

  • Business Cards

  • Banners (vinyl or car door, magnets or mouse pads

  • E-Flyers (promo dds)

  • Custom Invitations

  • Media Imaging and Portrait Framing

  • Media Flyers

  • Website Building and Branding

  • Real Image Logos

  • Commercial Vinyl Banners

  • Book Cover Designs

  • Brochures

  • Business Starter Pro (Small Business Branding/Development)

  • Trademark and LLC Registration and,

  • Design You (“Anything not listed above that you want to customize such as spiral bound notebooks or custom made cards and more,” Brown said).


“I like my business, because I get to do everything I’ve always wanted to do in my business,” Brown said. “I apply my natural skill for business and communicating with the world. I am free to be as creative as I want. There are no limits and I get to travel, seeing the world, bringing my services to those who have never heard about me, or maybe they are looking for a better way to get services and not pay those ridiculous overrated prices that my competitors offer.”

A native of Detroit, amongst the things about which Brown is extremely grateful is that she steadfastly stepped out on faith in delving off into entrepreneurship.

Prior to starting Metiamay Visions, Brown had assumed the role of a freelance graphic designer for approximately three years.

“I decided that enough was enough and I put all my life skills and different job experiences into one space and Metiamay Visions was born,” Brown said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN 

Today, Brown’s rising venture accommodates small business owners, entrepreneurs, corporate companies, and services individuals and groups, ranging from the ages of their mid-20’s through their late 60’s.

And, to her credit, her brilliant expertise has given way to her having been afforded the golden opportunity to put her immeasurable skills on display in a host of establishments, including Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Arkansas, Texas, Georgia, and Alabama, among other places.

Because she’s fully persuaded she’s fulfilling the purpose for which God created her, Brown is confident the sky’s undoubtedly the limit for her newly-erected business.


“I enjoy this work, because it’s something that I love doing and I get to help everyday people grow their dream as well through the work they request from my business,” Brown said. “I’ve launched about five successful online and ecommerce businesses through my work. I’m changing the world one person at a time by starting and changing one new business at a time with my designs and images.”

Behind the unyielding support of her husband, David Brown — whom Brown said told her, “My husband says I should have done this a long time ago and he’s right” — this young Ohio businesswoman said the pivotal factor for starting her business came from a gallery of her peers.

“(I kept) hearing others just like me, who were lost and confused and not knowing where to start to get their business or professional image for their business at,” Brown explained. So I have to say from within.”

Now that Metiamay Visions is up and running, Brown appears destined to go full throttle with her starting lineup of endeavors, which include her being an accomplished author, who’s preparing to release her second book later this year.

JUST WARMING UP — Now that Metiamay Visions is up and running, Brown appears destined to g full throttle with her starting lineup of endeavors, which include her being an accomplished author, who’s preparing to release her second book later this year.

In addition, she’s scheduled to attend business expos in the foreseeable future in Chicago, Phoenix, and Atlanta, and she recently spoke at Ohio Media School, during which she enlightened students on the field of media and introduced them her services.

“I welcomed my first group of interns that are now a part of my team,” Brown said of her recent visit to that institution.

For what it’s worth, Brown is blessed of the notion that she stayed true to herself, stayed the course, trusted the process and, most of all, followed her dreams.

“I’m glad I’m finally exposed, because now people know it’s official. I’m a successful businesswoman now,” Brown said.

Fielding the question as if she expected it.
