Boston author Pamela Reece’s “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” deemed a much-anticipated ‘must read’


If you faint in the day of adversity, your strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR ADVERSITY

TURNING POINT — To her credit, Pamela Reece’s authorship talents have come full circle, given she is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” an awe-inspiring project that, according to this Boston-area writer, essentially aligns with the purpose for which she was created.

Regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things had become, say this about Pamela Reece:

She was determined not to faint (or give up) in her day (present time) of adversity.
“On various occasions, I’d be in the company of friends, sharing portions of my story, growing up in a dysfunctional setting and the adversities I had to overcome,” Reece, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that fueled her desire to compose her latest book.
“Initially, the conversations were just a means to socialize and share my testimony of God’s faithfulness to me through the years,” Reece continued. “I would go from one experience to the next as my friends listened intently…so much that they strongly suggested I write a book.  I quickly dismissed the idea of writing, because it seemed so daunting.”
All things considered, amongst the things that Reece had ultimately discovered was that God had other ideas, particularly with her regards to her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

“Whenever God sends a deliverer, the opposition will wage war so that the deliverer doesn’t walk in his or her purpose,” said Reece, a devout woman of faith whom, given her array of hardships, is sounding as confident as she’s ever been in quite some time. “The opposition knows the Deliverer if given free course, will powerfully impact lives and generations to come.  So adversity was sent to smother my identity and purpose in the earth, yet every trial was sent to shape my personality but only for the better.  What seemed unfair, unjust and horrific, God has turned it for my good.”

Especially through “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage,” this spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity that emerged in her life to challenge her faith.

Still, come hell or high water, this Christian-based author didn’t merely allow her faith to waver.

If nothing, she deemed it essential to become even more intentional, particularly from a spiritually perspective, considering she steadfastly made it point to draw closer to God in the process.

THE PROVERBS 24:10 FACTOR — “I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is spiritually-equipping written work that, much to Reece’s delight, was birthed amid all sorts of adversity

Talk about demonstrating enough spiritual maturity by simply embracing adversity.


“Without the adversity, I would not have the advantage today of sharing this interview with the world,” Reece said. “Statistics tell us that eight out of 10 rapes are committed by someone the victim knows.  Every nine minutes, child protective service agencies find evidence of sexual abuse.”


Interesting, Reece disclosed some other notable facts to better support her purpose for assembling “I Chose The Good: Turning  Adversity Into Advantage.”

A native of Boston, Reece’s “I Chose the Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is her personal memoir that details in length her growing up in a home of severe dysfunctionality and adversity.  This book, in fact, goes into great length of how she was exposed to abandonment, alcoholism, verbal abuse, and sexual molestation.

“I Chose The Good: Turning Adversity Into Advantage” is Reece’s first published book and, earlier this week, she told Making Headline News that after the forthcoming re-launch of “I Chose the Good,” more literary works will surface in the pipeline before year’s end.

“Today and the future are mine to dream, describe, and define,” Reece said. “I am particularly passionate about those who are a little older like myself, who know that they’re made for more and have an insatiable desire to pursue a lifelong dream and touch the world.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that — regardless of how discouraging or dysfunctional things might seem.

Boston preacher Bishop Ronald S. Hobson, Sr. advancing the kingdom mightily as leader of The Reconstruction Church


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 KJV)


DALLAS — Just a few days ago, Dr. Ronald S Hobson, Sr. found himself reminiscing, among other things, about how his family had gone about making peace with Jesus Christ.

Without question, it was arguably the best discovery of his young life.

As Dr. Hobson — a Boston-area pastor who’s widely known as Bishop Hobson — explained, it all unfolded sometime after the tragic death of grandmother, during which his family consequently attended the historic Jefferson Temple Church of God In Christ in nearby North Bellport, New York.
Ironically, Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S MIGHTY SPOKESPERSON — A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Ronald S. Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

“It was after she accepted Christ that our journey as a family into the Christian faith began,” Bishop Hobson told Making Headline News this week.

For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher, whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people.

God’s people, to be more direct.

A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Bishop Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

Located at 80 Pleasant Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, The Reconstruction Church has adopted a notable commitment that is centered largely on serving its community through various programs, many of which are geared toward people’s spiritual needs.

“We are not hear to judge, but to help you change the way you think about your faith,” said a spokesperson for The Reconstruction Church in a detailed introduction of this flourishing ministry at https://thereconstructionchurch.org/.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census — it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

He’s also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

Having always looked up to and admired his pastor, Bishop Ralph L. Jefferson — “I still admire him today,” he often says — it was due in large part to his spiritual father’s unorthodox style of preaching, coupled with what Bishop Hobson describes as his “tenacity in preaching The Word” that greatly fueled his desire to want to follow in his footsteps.

PROMOTED BY GOD — Dr. Hobson was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is especially appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best way she knew how, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its share of challenges.

“Like any other inner-city, I was introduced to many vises and avenues that were not ideal and economically friendly,” Bishop Hobson recalls. “I had to do what I had to do to survive.”

Regardless, amongst the notable factors with which this young preacher had come to grips was that only what he does for Christ will last. So realistically, there was no running from the calling and purpose for which he was created.

MOM KNOWS BEST — For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people. God’s people, to be more direct.

“The amazing part of everything was that the church became my outlet and focus,” Bishop Hobson explained. “The more I attended, the more comfortable I grew to accept this Jesus my pastor so eloquently shared through his preaching and teachings. The church became my focal point for change. My pastor took the time to teach me all he could for me to become someone or something in life. He poured into me daily values and practices of clean, godly living. He wanted to ensure that I made godly decisions in life.”

All of which practically sums up why this young preacher from a rural town on Long Island has been set aside for God’s use, all the while steadily having a massive impact in advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

Never mind that according to Bishop Hobson, the awe-inspiring events that had ultimately given way to his divine call to ministry weren’t merely easy, he often recalls.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census, it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

“It was life-changing,” he typically says without hesitation.

Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

He’s been preaching ever since.

Bishop Hobson also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

“Remembering the day when my pastor laid his hands on me, he shared with me a dream I had the night before,” Bishop Hobson recalled. “The Lord knew what He showed me in my dream, but my pastor’s prophetic discernment by The Spirit of God was led to share the dream. He said, ‘Son, God has called you to preach.’ After that, I hit the floor – slain in The Spirit.”

He’s been slain in The Spirit ever since.

He hasn’t looked back ever since.

Credit the fact that He’s been sold out to God ever since.

In no particularly order.

IT’S ALL GOOD — Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best of her capabilities, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its challenges. Pictured with Bishop Hobson are his sons, Ron, Jr. and Christopher.

Having become a licensed minister the same year he delivered his first sermon, Bishop Hobson was ordained and installed as a Pastor in October 2002 by Bishop Ralph L. Harmon, Milford, DE.

 

Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

Consequently, he was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O.

Davis (California).

Having studied at Empire State College in Buffalo, New York, Bishop Hobson enrolled at the University of Phoenix, during which his concentration was Business Administration.  Having matriculated from Encouraging Faith Theological University with honors, Bishop Hobson is an accomplished author who wrote “Who’s Your Moses?”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

“Accepting what God allowed was my new momentum and vision focus,” Bishop Hobson said of his well-publicized ministerial career. “I felt secure in knowing Chrissy was in the safest arms. I knew I had to continue to preach the Good News. I’ve learned that through the course of healing that I have to love and not hate…press to impress Christ and live the best life I could for Him, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, not even me.”

All things considered, that, without question, was arguably the best discovering of his young life.
