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


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


GOD’S BEACON OF LIGHT 

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

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

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

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

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

That’s not all.

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

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

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

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

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

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


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

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

But God…

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


SEASON OF DESTINY STEPS 

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

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

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

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

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


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


STAYING PRAYED UP

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And the rest, as they say, was history.

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Talk about putting uncommon favor to good use.

Louisiana author LaDonna Jarden fulfilling her God-mandated purpose with 10 books and counting


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


GOD’S LEADING LADY

DESTINY STEPS — During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Louisiana Christian author LaDonna Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author. Jarden has authored 10 books since 2004.

DALLAS — Ten and counting.

That is the number of books accomplished Christian-based author LaDonna Jarden has written throughout an authorship tenure that spans a little more than a decade and a half.
Her latest written work, “Bruised But Not Broken: Worshipping With A Broken Heart,” is presently in the works and, much to her delight, has already created a favorable buzz for Jarden, a native of Houston.
During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jarden was extremely complementary to God, particularly how He’s gone about using her for His glory through her immeasurable gifts as an author.
“It (is) a testimony of life issues I was dealing with,” Jarden, a DeRidder, Louisiana-based writer, said of her latest book, a spiritually-equipping project that will be released at a date to be announced. “It was a coping mechanism for me to release the pain I was enduring.”

BUY AUTHOR JARDEN’S BOOKS HERE: https://authorityconsultingservices.wordpress.com/

Jarden’s authorship debut occurred in 2001 during which she discovered her sister was ill. She completed her initial project two years later.

To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

Prior to that timeframe, Jarden had written books every two years.

“In this book I’m publishing is for my sisters,” ladies, please stop holding every man accountable for (your) past relationship issues,” said Jarden, explaining the divine message she’s aiming to send to her audience through her newly-assembled book. “If you allow God to heal the hurt, you can overcome this.”

In a nutshell, Jarden emphasized, what it all boils down to seeking and consulting God for a sense of direction, particularly when it comes to putting the past where it belongs: behind you.


“I’m not saying it’s easy, but you will get through it,” Jarden said. “I’m reminded the story of Job. He lost all he had, but he fell to the ground and worshipped. He said, ‘The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away,…blessed be the name of the Lord.’ He worshipped God and remained faithful.”


A book that is a spinoff from a conference Jarden customarily hosts, this devout woman of faith said the feedback through her books has been overwhelmingly favorable.

“I’ve counseled many single women on relationships,” Jarden said. “I’ve gone to marriage retreats, taught women’s conferences, etc.

As Jarden has reiterated time and again to those to whom she counsels, “Everything we face in life has a purpose.”


THROUGH IT ALL…

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

Interestingly, she even deemed it essential to offer a great deal of transparency when sharing with others her assortment of life-changing testimonies.

“My marriage for the first five years was rocky,” Jarden said. “I didn’t consult anyone but God. I didn’t consult family, girlfriends, or others. I spoke with our spiritual father and he came down and counseled us, after which I became a spokesperson for women in marriage. The enemy wants nothing more than to lock believers in that cell of pain and keep us trapped in isolation. But God says, ‘No!’”

An accomplished businesswoman in her own right — she owns a T-shirt line and credible publishing company — Jarden is giddy of the fact that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


A NOTABLE REMINDER…

How else to explain why she’s made some pretty considerable strides as a Christian-based author?

“There are many other books I know God has purposed me to do,” said Jarden, whose itinerary includes an engagement in December during which she will enlighten women knowing their position and purpose in ministry.

An authorship tenure that spans nearly 16 years, Jarden said amongst her strategic objectives to encourage people from various walks of life to development the mindset tell of God’s goodness through their testimonies.

IN HER OWN ZONE — To her credit, it seemed she hasn’t retired the pad and pen since, considering she has written nine additional books, including one in consecutive years between 2014-2016.

“I believe that if we as believers would tell our story, then we can win others to Christ,” Jarden said. “Pursue your purpose and God will use you for His glory. I am now a publisher with my own publishing company.”

To her credit, she’s undoubtedly savoring the fruits of her labor.

“This year, I have published five (authors’ books), and I have personally written 10 books,” Jarden said. “I’ve been writing for 15 years.”

And counting.

Talk about allowing God to use her mightily according to His purpose.

EMBRACING PURPOSE 

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS — A devout woman of faith who has been married for more than 12 years, New Orleans author Wendy Magee deemed it essential to put her immeasurable authorship gifts on display for a second time, this time with the release of the newly-produced book entitled, “You Are Unique: Embrace It.”

Wendy Magee was all ears.

She heard all of what essentially was nothing more than murmuring and complaining —at least from a spiritual perspective.

Even as she listened attentively to a gallery of women collectively question the purpose for they were created, she sensed it was a civic duty to helped steer them in the right direction with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“I began hearing many women questioning their purpose,” Magee told Making Headline News this week. “As I spoke with these women, I found that many of them have been married for several years and feeling like they have lost themselves and didn’t have a purpose.”

Texas mother Aleesha Simmons remembering her son’s legacy through a notable non-profit organization

DOING IT FOR DOUG

REMEMBERING DOUG — According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Doug Williams — who lettered in football, basketball, and track and field for Dallas’ Franklin D. Roosevelt High School — was conditioning in April at a nearby park when he suddenly passed out. To no avail, first responders could not resuscitate him. Williams’ mother, Aleesha Simmons, has since established “Doug’s Run To The Finish,” her rising nonprofit organization that is presently in the works and is scheduled to officially go into operations within “four-to-six weeks,” she said.

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — For Aleesha Simmons, it is a dejected, demoralizing feeling she’s repeated said she doesn’t want another mother to have to convey.

The discomfort to which she is alluding is the shocking death of her son, Doug Williams, a then-multi-sport athlete at Dallas’ Franklin D. Roosevelt High School, whose life was cut short back in April amid a sudden cardiac arrest.
He was 16.
According to a report at https://www.your-heart-health.com/content/close-the-gap/en-US/heart-disease-facts/young-athletes.html, sudden cardiac arrest (or SCA) is the leading cause of death in young athletes. Most often, the death occurs during athletic training or competition.
If SCA is not treated immediately, it can lead to sudden cardiac death (or SCD) within minutes, the report said.
According to sources with knowledge of the situation, Williams — who lettered in football, basketball, and track and field — was conditioning at a nearby park when he suddenly passed out. To no avail, first responders could not resuscitate him.

At the time of his death, Williams reportedly was hours removed from having rededicated his life to Christ.

“After my 16-year-old son passed away suddenly in April due to the sudden cardiac arrest, it left me so lost and confused,” Simmons told Making Headline News this week. “And I feel like I didn’t want any other mother to have to go through this, especially not even knowing that something was even wrong.”

While Simmons and her family undoubtedly will be affected by the sudden demise of her son for the rest of their lives, she has — to her credit — deemed it essential to carry on Williams’ legacy through a notable cause.

As Simmons explained, while a majority of the Roosevelt High School community is still very affected by her son’s death, a number of fellow church members and close acquaintances are backing her mightily on bringing about awareness through her fledgling organization.

A native of Chicago who works primarily as a Dallas/Fort Worth-area customer service specialist, Simmons is the founder and director of “Doug’s Run To The Finish,” her rising nonprofit organization that is presently in the works and is scheduled to officially go into operations within “four-to-six weeks,” she said.

Through “Doug’s Run To The Finish,” Simmon’s strategic mission is centered largely on stopping the vastly growing epidemic of sudden cardiac arrest, particularly amongst youth athletes, she told MHN.

In order for this to happen, parents, student athletes, and trainers must become knowledgeable about the various symptoms related to cardiac arrest so that her organization, in turn, can appropriately assist in setting up the necessary screenings, etc.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — At the time of his death, Williams reportedly was hours removed from having rededicated his life to Christ.

Interestingly, “Doug’s Run To The Finish” will host community-wide events during which it will provide credible resources and pertinent information, as well CPR training, which would involve educating certified individuals on how to properly use a defibrillator, Simmons said.

In addition, Simmons emphasized she will execute the essential steps to ensure that area sports teams are equipped with defibrillators to prevent sudden cardiac arrest in the event a student athlete collapses.

As Simmons explained, while a majority of the Roosevelt High School community is still very much affected by her son’s death, a number of fellow church members and close acquaintances are backing her mightily on bringing about awareness through her fledgling organization.


“(I thank) my pastor (Andrew Jackson Jr.), my family and close friends who are deeply affected by my son’s sudden passing,” Simmons said. “This mission is very near and dear to my heart, because the day I lost my son was by far the worst day that I’ve ever experienced in my life.”


For what it’s worth, Simmons has often struggled, particularly with regards to seeing a silver-lining, of sorts, in the wake of Williams’ untimely death.

“Someone told me that my son was a seed and his passing was just the seed being planted and this mission is the fruits of that seed sprouting up and manifesting,” Simmons explained. “So my son lives on through saving the lives of others.”

While Simmons and her family undoubtedly will be affected by the sudden demise of her son for the rest of their lives, she has — to her credit — deemed it essential to carry on Williams’ legacy through a notable cause.

A nonprofit organization that’s geared toward individuals ranging mostly between the ages five-to-25, Simmons said amongst the factors about which she has become thoroughly persuaded is that her son undoubtedly fulfilled the purpose for which God created him.

Now it’s time to effectively carry out his legacy through a notable organization that figures to not just change a generation, but to impact it in the process.

After all, Simmons is fully convinced that is what her young, vibrant, speedy multi-sport athlete of a son would have wanted.


DONATE TO A WORTHY CAUSE: Cash App Aleesha @ $AleeshaSimmons

According to a report at https://www.your-heart-health.com/content/close-the-gap/en-US/heart-disease-facts/young-athletes.html, sudden cardiac arrest (or SCA) is the leading cause of death in young athletes. Most often, the death occurs during athletic training or competition. Williams was 16 at the time of his death.

“My goal is for this campaign to go as far and as wide as it possibly can,” said Simmons, whose organization is already becoming a fixture throughout the DFW Metroplex. “(I’m doing this) knowing that my son’s life has a purpose.”

A purpose that’s still very much justifiable to this day — and beyond.

How befitting for a well-rounded student athlete whom, much to his credit, ran to the finish.

South Carolina Pastor Angela L. Mczeke walking exquisitely in her purpose as a successful author, businesswoman


For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Angela L. Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.

In case you don’t know her, Pastor Angela L. Mczeke would like to introduce herself.

A native of Tabor City, North Carolina — one of the state’s largest counties that is just north of the North Carolina/South Carolina state line with a population of roughly 3,979, according to the latest U. S. census — Mczeke currently resides in Green Sea, South Carolina, which is in close proximity of the historic Myrtle Beach.
Widely known as a Pastor, Innovative Coach, Empowerment Speaker, Stylist, Educator, and Inventor, Mczeke has also found her niche as an accomplished author of five books to date.
Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”
“(I’ve hosted) a conference every year since 2017,” Mczeke told Making Headline News this week. “Women have come forward with their stories, (sharing how they’ve) become healed and moving on in life despite the heartache and pain (they’ve endured). I have preached and had others to join as well.

FOR STARTERS — Mczeke’s featured written work undoubtedly is entitled, “No Longer Silent,” a project that has fueled her fervent desire to host what is known as her annual “No Longer Silent Conference.”

“I have preached (at other) conferences only to tell my story and lives have been changed through my courage to speak out.”

A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

“They are (tremendous reads) to have… mostly for women,” Mczeke said of her other written works. “Despite the obstacles, (my books are pivotal reminders) that you can become an overcomer.”

Interestingly, once Mczeke had become acclimated to the ever-so-competitive authorship, it wasn’t until after her sophomore project that she had begun to enhance her business-related mechanics, particularly as an empowerment coach.

“After my second book, I became a life coach and I am an inventor,” said Mczeke, referring to the eventual startup of what is known as “The Innovative Coaching Business.”

STARTING LINEUP — A devout woman of faith whose kingdom-based resume is amongst the most-respected throughout the Body of Christ, Mczeke also is the mastermind behind four other spiritually-empowering books: “Search Yourself,” “Anthology: 12 Laws To Women In Business,” “Purified Purpose To Success,” and “12 Keys To Success.”

Through this notable endeavor, Mczeke is routinely afforded the opportunity of creating ideas for herself, as well as for her clients and mentees as a strategic way of enabling them to advance in the life God has for them, she said.

Widely regarded as a trail blazer, in large part because of her unorthodox creativity — “which God has poured into me,” she acknowledged — Mczeke is the chief executive officer of Exclusive Design Hair Studio, Exclusive Chic Fashions On Line Boutique, Exclusive Wig Collection, and she is the face of Angela’s Innovative Hair Academy.

To her credit, Mczeke has made considerable strides in what is known as the Innovative Certified Coaching industry, in large part because of the sustained success of her online program called, “Embracing Your Originality.”

A well-respected and beloved woman of God, Mczeke is the Founder of Kingdom Harvest Outreach Ministries.

Her kingdom-based track record is such that she is widely regarded for steadfastly standing in truth, firmly on the word of God, realizing — among other things — she can’t do anything without Him.

“He created me in His image and likeness,” Mczeke said of her sustained success in the kingdom and the marketplace.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to greatly empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.


“I never knew I would be a writer, author, mentor, and life coach until I lost my house around 2016, and me and my husband while Pastoring for about three years, we moved in with my mom and I begin journaling,” said Mczeke, recalling vividly the humble beginnings that essentially spearheaded her quest to persevere toward the purpose for which God created her. “And I was told to write a book.”


As it turned it, Mczeke hasn’t shown any signs that she plans to shelve the pen and pad anytime soon.

How else to explain why she has successfully orchestrated five books in such a brief time frame?

“(People told me), ‘I see you writing,’” Mczeke said. “I never knew I would be an author of five books. These books have totally helped me walk completely into my purpose.”

Without question, it is a foregone conclusion Who gets the credit.

“I can honestly say I give God the glory,” Mczeke said without hesitation. “I only want Him to be glorified. I knew it was major that I walk into my purpose…to empower, motivate, and inspire others through my experiences.”

For Mczeke, she subsequently had to endure her share of ashes before God had ultimately catapulted her to a much-anticipated harvest season, one that’s blanketed by pure beauty — both in the natural and the spirit.

“After 17 years of being a successful hairstylist and salon owner, I was forced by God to shut it down,” Mczeke said. “Yes, I became depressed, because that’s all I thought I knew, but God had so much more in me. So He bought me out of my comfort zone to place me in a very uncomfortable place I hadn’t been before.”

Little did Mczeke know, even when she sensed she was down to nothing, God — His usual reliable Self — was up to something.

“Now I am depressed, because I didn’t understand what was going on only to find out I was in transition to something greater than me…my career,” Mczeke said. “Now I am traveling all over the world to not (just) saving hair, but lives as well.”

In case you don’t know Pastor Angela L. Mczeke, now you do.

All things considered, Mczeke emphasized she customarily uses a journey she refers to as “from victim to victorious” to empower other women, most notably through her coaching, mentoring programs, and conferences.

Brands Suit Warehouse is one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest hubs for stylish men’s fashion

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS

WHAT IT’LL BE? From the latest and up-to-date versions of men’s suits, shoes, neckties, to arguably some of the hottest and most sought after attires for the annual prom seasons, weddings clergymen, etc., Brands is — in playing off of words — committed to staying true to its brand, a movement that has given way to owners Kevin and Nick Ramezani reaping sustained success.

DALLAS — Throughout her tenure in a men’s fashion industry that spans more than four decades, Sebrina Jones has come to embrace one notable trend within the walls of Brands Suit Warehouse.

That is, she has seized the concept that every now and then, some of her most dedicated customer will deem it essential to assist and accommodate other customers.
For Jones, such a pleasant gesture, by all accounts, is what makes her job even more gratifying.
“Yeah…we’re always having customers waiting on customers,” Jones told Making Headline News this week. “They feel so comfortable, they help us. That’s what you call good customer service.”
Not only that, it is due in large part because of Brands’ proverbial guide-you-along concept toward its customers that has contributed mightily it becoming one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most popular hubs for men’s fashion.
TRIPLE D SENSATION — Located at 4140 West Camp Wisdom Road, Suite C — or roughly a half mile south of the Duncanville city limits — Brands has become a fixture in the greater Oak Cliff district of Dallas.

From the latest and up-to-date versions of men’s suits, shoes, neckties, to arguably some of the hottest and most sought after attires for the annual prom seasons, weddings clergymen, etc., Brands is — in playing off of words — committed to staying true to its brand, a movement that has given way to owners Kevin and Nick Ramezani reaping sustained success.

Located at 4140 West Camp Wisdom Road, Suite C — or roughly a half mile south of the Duncanville city limits — Brands has become a fixture in the greater Oak Cliff district of Dallas.

Brands and Suit And Shoe Outlet offer a variety of brand name men’s fashion attire from Falcone, Stacy Adams, Maurizio, Brand Q, Karl Knox, Renoir, Globe, Gorgio Brutini, Calvin Klein, Steven Land, Verse 9, Encore, and Inserch, among others.

A native of Dallas, Jones, 60, has been employed by Brands since 2009 and, much to her delight, she has developed a close-knit bond with a number of its regular customers.

Prior to joining the Brands team, Jones had already established solid and immeasurable men’s fashion resume, considering she had compiled more than 30 years of professional experience.

“I have a lot of favorite customers,” Jones said. “I have customers who have been with me for over 30 years.”

LEADING BY EXAMPLE — Prior to joining the Brands team, fashion coordinator Sebrina Jones had already established solid and immeasurable men’s fashion resume, considering she had compiled more than 30 years of professional experience.

Prior to its Camp Wisdom location that went into operations in 2006, the Ramezanies’ company was named the Big And Tall Fashion For Less and was housed in nearby Mesquite, Texas.

Brands’ original store, meanwhile, was located in Cedar Hill.

The Ramezanies have since expanded their business, thus adding Suit And Shoe Outlet, which essentially is located across the street from their primary site in the historic Red Bird Village.

Both locations, in fact, offer a variety of brand name men’s fashion attire from Falcone, Stacy Adams, Maurizio, Brand Q, Karl Knox, Renoir, Globe, Gorgio Brutini, Calvin Klein, Steven Land, Verse 9, Encore, and Inserch, among others.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED — It is due in large part because of Brand’s customary guide-you-along concept toward its customers that has contributed mightily it becoming one’s Dallas/Fort Worth most popular hubs for men’s fashion.

Interestingly, Jones said that plans are effectively underway for management to erect an online site, where customers can shop and have items shipped to them anywhere around the country.

“Whatever you want, we’ve got it,” said Jones, placing even more emphasis on the company’s key ingredient that is efficient customer service. “We don’t turn you a loose until (you’ve found what you want).”

Every now and then, Brands’ customers might perhaps find themselves becoming the beneficiaries of jokes, Jones acknowledged with a grin.

Interestingly, Jones said that plans are effectively underway for management to erect an online site, where customers can shop and have items shipped to them anywhere around the country.

“We even joke with you,” Jones said a routine gesture that customarily makes her job more amusing.

Fellow Brands’ fashion coordinator Guen Abello Bethley, like Jones, has gone to great lengths to find her comfort zone with a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

STAR WATCH — Brands’ fashion coordinator Guen Abello Bethley has had the pleasure to accommodating the fashion needs of a host of globally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably Joe Jackson, the late father and manager of pop music icon Michael Jackson, who passed away in June 2018 at the age of 89.

“Working for this company gave me an opportunity to develop my skills in fashion coordinating and store management,” Bethley said.

Credit the fact that she’s also had the pleasure to accommodating the fashion needs of a host of globally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably Joe Jackson, the late father and manager of pop music icon Michael Jackson, who passed away in June 2018 at the age of 89.

“I’ve grown so much as an individual,” Bethley said, “and I am a better fashion consultant and a regional manager because of this company.”

Atlanta minister Jason Madison advancing the kingdom fervently through his immeasurable gifts


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


MIGHTY MAN OF VALOR 

HE’S STILL STANDING — To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, Jason B. Madison has virtually done it all as a catalyst on God’s battlefield, having served in a variety of roles, including an associate minister, youth pastor, executive pastor, not to mention a Senior Pastor.

Jason Madison could be appropriately described as a man of many hats, most notably in the Body of Christ.

Consider, for instance, his resourceful track record he’s compiled since he commenced to preaching the Gospel a little more than three decades ago.
“Through the years, I have served in many areas within the church body,” Madison told Making Headline News this week.
Having sold out completely to God at the tender age of 15, that is when Madison made his pulpit debut during which he preached his very first sermon.
He hasn’t looked back since.
To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, Madison has virtually done it all as a catalyst on God’s battlefield, having served in a variety of roles, including an associate minister, youth pastor, executive pastor, not to mention a Senior Pastor.
A retired Navy solider, this Atlanta-based minister has found his niche as an accomplished actor, model, as well as a radio and podcast host.

Much to his delight, he’s now been blessed with the golden opportunity to span the globe, a trend that has, in a nutshell, given way to his immeasurable ministerial gifts making even more room for him.

“Currently, my ministry allows me to travel and minister to Pastors and their leaders,” Madison said. “My desire is to awaken the church leaders so they may effectively minister to those serving under them.”

A spiritual resume that has caused him to flourish — and blossom — mightily through his gifts, Madison also is armed with other talents.

Madison once served in Bishop Paul S. Morton’s Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship as the International Director of Customer Service.

A retired Navy solider, this Atlanta-based minister has found his niche as an accomplished actor, model, as well as a radio and podcast host.

“Being that I’m retired from the military, it gives me the opportunity to work and serve freely without having to worry about money,” said Madison, a native of Seattle who was spent a better portion of life in Macon, Georgia. “I loving being able to minister without worrying if I’m going to get another speaking engagement. I’m tired of seeing church members being misled or mistaught.”

For Madison, it is due in large part to his assortment of well-publicized gifts — coupled with his keen act of obedience unto God — that funding that about which God has ordained him to do is never really an issue.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

Consider, for instance, how this devout man of valor is presently making his presence felt in the stage play entitled, “Not All Wounds Heal” an event that is powered by EJP Productions and written by Elijah Parham.

A play that figures to have an influential impact within — and outside of — the walls of the church, Madison stars as the character, Pastor James Thomas, who consequently has put the church before his family. Interestingly, Pastor Thomas’ larger-than-life ego has gotten the best of him, at least until what he was preaching against subsequently invaded his own house.


“Acting is an entirely different animal,” Madison said. “I love stage plays over the small and big screen. Being in front of a live audience gives instant feedback. When you make a mistake, forget a line or one of the other cast slip-up, its shows your real skill in performing in front of others. The director can’t call, ‘Cut!’”


Not to be outdone, Madison’s modeling gifts have been as good as advertised, considering he’s been dubbed a featured model in the book, “The Perfect Marriage,” an awe-inspiring written work that’s written by Sharon Willingham and will scheduled to be released later this year.

This forthcoming book, Madison explained, highlights the story of a woman who survived domestic abuse.

All things considered, Madison’s laundry list of gifts and talents arose largely because of his presence and valiant contributions in the church.

“The passion behind my ministry is not wanting others to go through this cycle of a spiritual walk that only allows my faith walk to last a week,” Madison said. “My desire is have the church become more honest with how we teach and deliver God’s Word. Also, my passion is for leaders and helping them not to get burned out with grown the individual ministries.

A spiritual resume that has caused him to flourish — and blossom — mightily through his gifts, Madison also is armed with other talents.

“I been able to minister in small settings to large conferences,” continued Madison, adding that his passion for ministry came from his grandfather (who would customarily demand that he read Biblical passages and recite to him that about which he read). “I do have to admit: my personal favorite engagement was when Bishop Paul Morton ask me to preach at one of his services after the International Conference one year.”

Madison, in fact, served in Bishop Morton’s Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship as the International Director of Customer Service.

“We had just had a full week of conference duties and I was dog tired,” Madison said of his person encounter with Bishop Morton, a globally-acclaimed preacher, singer, songwriter, and author. “But when he asked, I jumped on it. I preached, ‘Don’t Throw In The Towel!’”

For Madison, it is due in large part to his assortment of well-publicized gifts — coupled with his act of obedience unto God — that funding that about which God has ordained him to do is never an issue.

Which, to Madison’s credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, practically sum up why he could appropriately be described as a man of many hats.

That is, he was destined to never throw in the towel.

“There is a motto that I live my life by: ‘Never leave a person without having change their lives in some way’,” Madison said. “Did they laugh, cry, or learn something?”

Well said by this beloved, bigger-than-life spreader of the Gospel, who’s undoubtedly earned the right to pose these trio of questions.

To God be the glory.

Is Dallas entrepreneur Sakina G. Jackson the seasoning mix industry’s best kept secret?

OVERFLOW SEASON-ING 

SALT OF THE EARTH — The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Sakina G. Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s fielding orders all across the country.

DESOTO, Texas — Just recently, Sakina G. Jackson took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather spirited post to her timeline.

Don’t get twisted, mind you. She wasn’t merely bragging.
If nothing else, she was only enlightening the masses of the continuous buzz surrounding what is shaping up to be a globally-acclaimed invention for the ages.
Said Jackson before her hundreds of social media followers: “I’m just saying! Get you some Big Toe Seasonings.”
For what it’s worth, Jackson undoubtedly has earned the right to exemplify such passion for a product that figures to turn heads in countless of households and restaurants for years to come.
Never mind that she senses those avenues by which to start a company is very much like birthing a baby — to put it more appropriately.

MORE ON BIG TOE SEASONING LLC: https://bigtoeseasonings.com/

“Growing up in a family of seven, five siblings and being a tomboy, winning in life has always been a goal,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “I started working in Corporate America in the 90’s as a legal services company (during) which there were many competitors. Learning to be my best in all areas of business was imperative.”

Speaking of being her best, Jackson’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she’s been nothing short of remarkable.

The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s routinely fielding orders all across the country.

Interestingly, she’s essentially gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in the tri-state areas that’s comprised of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

“I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said. “My products have traveled to more places than I have myself have (she continued while laughing).  I am hoping to catch up.”

FINISHED PRODUCT — Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Most recently, Jackson engaged in a rather festive and intriguing tour she famously dubbed as “FLAVAs,” during which she was afforded golden opportunities to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display.

As usual, she was as good as advertised, in large part because consumers have come to embrace — and savor — Jackson’s delectable, mouthwatering seasonings, especially her annual holiday season’s faithful three: Lemon Pepper, Creole, and the Big Toe’s ever-so-popular Bless Yo Heart seasoning, a traditionally historic southern catchphrase Jackson’s granddaughter is responsible for having named.

LOCKED AND LOADED — Interestingly, Jackson essentially has gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in establishments such as Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. “I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said.

A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained entrepreneurial success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough.

Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

Such an assignment had ultimately lasted some eight years which, to Jackson’s surprise, had given way to her being named Director of Municipal Court.


DID YOU KNOW…


“I do attribute this growth to a manager, who saw my leadership qualities, which quite frankly, stemmed from several years in corporate and my vast entrepreneurial skills,” Jackson said. “Becoming a mother heightened this desire as I wanted my children and grandchildren to know that if they educate themselves in whatever they set out to do in life, they too, can achieve success.  I now have moved into inspiring friends, women, veterans, youth to live their truth.”


Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

So don’t get it twisted.

“In all honesty, I have come to know that how we treat and help one another is a direct correlation with our own joy and happiness,” Jackson said. “A soul that simply exists to please him or herself is usually in my experience a very sad individual…a void of inner joy.  Therefore, I live to inspire others of all ethnic groups, ages, and cultures. It is my truth.”

Bless her ‘lil heart.

North Carolina author Angel McClain McCaskill embraces her God-mandated vision, courtesy of a new book


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


GOD’S BELOVED SURVIVOR 

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST Having gotten news of her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2007, Angel McClain McCaskill deemed it necessary to keep a journal throughout her memorable, life-changing journey, a trend that allowed her to recall a slew of things, all while having virtually no indication that God was strategically positioning her to assemble a book entitled, “From A Survivor’s Eye.”

The very moment God had given to Angel McClain McCaskill the vision, she did exactly what He essentially commanded her do.

She steadfastly ran with it.
And, what’s even more astounding is that McCaskill wasn’t merely about to allow her unlikely breast cancer diagnosis to stop her from living her best life.
“God gave me the vision after a powerful forefront women’s conference last July,” McCaskill, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the remarkably compelling events that have contributed mightily to her endeavor as an accomplished author. “My mentor, Lady Leah McNair, went into prayer with me, and five months later, we had a book.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Thanks in large part to McCaskill’s act of obedience unto God, coupled with the fervent prayers of her spiritual leader — as well as other intercessors — God has greatly empowered her to become the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “From A Survivor’s Eye.”

An intriguing, life-altering written work that was officially published in January 2019, McCaskill needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just under a half of a year to compose a book that has already begun to generate of array of favorable reviews from her reading audience.

Having fielded news of her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2007, McCaskill deemed it necessary to keep a journal throughout her memorable, life-changing journey, a trend that allowed her to recall a slew of things, all while having virtually no indication that God was strategically positioning her to assemble a book.

Yep. That’s just like God, ushering His children to their destiny, as only He could.

For what it’s worth, McCaskill — who’s “open to speaking engagements and book signings” — considers herself thorough blessed that God had strategically set her aside for His use for such a notable and memorable time as now.

For McCaskill, a native of York, South Carolina who resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, while she’s undoubtedly endured her share of turmoil and hardships through her breast cancer diagnosis, amongst the things about she relishes the most of how God’s continues to provide her a way of escape.

“No matter what you face — it doesn’t have to be breast cancer — God will get you through it,” said McCaskill, explaining the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her book. “I promise you. We all have survived something and with the help of the Lord (and) you can too.”

According to detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, McCaskill’s “From A Survivor’s Eye” is what this Christian-based writer describes as a “powerful book” of breast cancer survival.

“Follow the journey of Angel McCaskill, from discovery to healing and wholeness. You are guaranteed to be enlightened and inspired to persevere through any challenge in your life,” said an Amazon spokesperson for this author’s book she’s garnered since her book’s release.

“So many wonderful remarks and positive feedback…from men and women, saying how inspired they are from reading and they are ready for another one,” said McCaskill, adding that she plans to compose a 30-day inspirational journal in the foreseeable future.

For what it’s worth, McCaskill — who’s “open to speaking engagements and book signings” — considers herself thoroughly blessed that God has strategically set her aside for His use for such a notable and memorable time as now.
