Business partners Michael LeMay and Nikki Denise join forces to compose a book that promotes combating divorce


Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:6 KJV)


GOD’S HOLY ORDINANCE 

DALLAS — For the record, there’s never a bad time, quite frankly, to speak along the lines of what it means to avoid a dreaded marital dissolution.

That is why authors Michael LeMay and Nikki Denise have joined forced to compose a book they sense will become a fixture not just amongst worldly individuals but, most importantly, amongst those who make up the Body of Christ.
Never mind that the informative, emotionally-driven, spiritually gut-checking book by these writers isn’t scheduled to be released until sometime in Spring 2020.
“(We’re striving) to encourage men and women to reconsider staying married as opposed to divorce,” LeMay told Making Headline News this week. “And (we’re striving) to offer various practical and emotional reasons why they should stay married.”

ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAW…

Indeed they are, courtesy of an awe-inspiring and forthcoming book entitled, “Avoiding Divorce For Men and Women: 101,” a collaborative written document that’s centered largely on this dynamic duo of authors deeming it essential to — you know — keep it real with their readers, most notably those who could learn a thing or two about the downside of divorce and why sticking together as a union would be beneficial for both parties in the long run.

To their credit, these authors’ strategic and steadfast objective of keeping it real, by all accounts, is accompanied by a great deal of transparency.

There’s never a bad time, really, to speak along the lines of what it means to avoid a marital dissolution. That is why authors Michael LeMay and Nikki Denise have joined forced to compose a book they sense will become a fixture not just amongst worldly individuals but, most importantly, amongst those who make up the Body of Christ.

“We believe that having been through divorce and single parenting that we have an authentic experience and knowledge about this subject matter,” Nikki Denise, 39, a native of Durham, North Carolina, explained. “It is our quest to help African-American families stay together and to deter divorce through our media. We hope to bring awareness to the public about some of the pitfalls and root causes and the results of divorce on a family. And we hope to provide information and guidance to avoid divorce.”

A book that is already generating its share of favorable feedback — “It’s been all positive,” LeMay said — roughly eight months prior to its scheduled release, “Avoiding Divorce For Men and Women: 101” is making a strong case that it figures to be as good as advertised once it makes it ceremoniously release on the market.

“The avoiding divorce platform seeks to explain how various socio economic dynamics can transcend into interrelation dysfunction and marital failures, within modern African American families,” said the co-authors, when asked in what ways are their forthcoming book apart of the purpose for which God has created them. “The avoiding divorce platform challenges black men and women to perform deep mental introspection and self-examination, to discover the root causes in their behavioral patterns that can be correlated to patterns of dysfunction in their marriages.”

Moreover, LeMay and Nikki Denise acknowledged, what they appropriately label the “avoiding divorce platform” is absolutely essential, particularly as it pertains to keeping the sanctity of marriage intact.

THEY’VE GOT NEWS FOR YOU — All things considered, LeMay and his Nikki Denise can dauntless profess that they thank God for strategically assigning them for collectively composing an intriguing and essential book for such a time as now.

There are variety of pivotal reasons for drawing such an analogy, they emphasized.


“The avoiding divorce platform triggers an awareness in black men and women to realize that they must to do self and perhaps professional psychoanalysis required to know thyself and to become self-aware,” Nikki Denise explained. “We believe that this is our God-given assignment as authors.”


Having announced this week that they are open to speaking engagements, during which they would share in detail the developments that fueled their fervent desire to assemble “Avoiding Divorce For Men and Women: 101,” both LeMay and Nikki Denise have undoubtedly found their niche as accomplished writers, having authored a galley of books.

In addition, LeMay Imagery Publishing will be publishing “Avoiding Divorce: 101,” a book they emphasized is designed for men and women, especially couples who are passionate about diligently remaining in covenant.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “We believe that having been through divorce and single parenting that we have an authentic experience and knowledge about this subject matter,” Nikki Denise, 39, a native of Durham, North Carolina, explained. “It is our quest to help African-American families stay together and to deter divorce through our media. We hope to bring awareness to the public about some of the pitfalls and root causes and the results of divorce on a family. And we hope to provide information and guidance to avoid divorce.”

“Our goal is to inspire families and to offer them tools for them to stay together,” said LeMay, an Atlanta-based businessman who is a native of Chicago. “We believe that our message of avoiding divorce is ordained by God and that it is as important as the Civil Rights Movement was.”

Talk about a rather bold and riveting suggestion, one that because of this brilliantly compelling book, figures to become a fixture not just amongst worldly individuals but, most importantly, amongst those who make up the Body of Christ.

“(We want our readers) to become self-aware and spiritually awakened,” LeMay said in making a plea for consumers to begin submitting presale orders for “Avoiding Divorce For Men and Women: 101.”

“I had to go through the process of analyzing my own consciousness and my psychological make-up…to evoke change within himself, I had to deconstruct myself from the core,” LeMay continued. “And then rebuild and reengineer my mind with new content. I had to undergo a mental and spiritual rebirth.”

All things considered, LeMay and his Nikki Denise can dauntlessly profess that they thank God for strategically assigning them for collectively composing an intriguing and essential book for such a time as now.

BOOK THEM — Having announced this week that they are open to speaking engagements, during which they would share in detail the developments that fueled their fervent desire to assemble “Avoiding Divorce For Men and Women: 101,” both LeMay and Nikki Denise have undoubtedly found their niche as accomplished writers, having authored a galley of books.

“I don’t believe that I’d be divorced today had I made these kinds of mental and spiritual changes before it was too late,” LeMay said without hesitation. “If I had only paid attention to the signs that my wife presented to me…had I taken accountability for taking the time to learn how to become humble enough to know that my marriage was in trouble, I don’t believe that I would be divorced today.

“Being able to ask for help when I realized that my marriage was in trouble was the work,” LeMay added. “This is the necessary process. In that, we acknowledge that we are in trouble and that we respond effectively.”

Talk about keeping it real.

For the record.

Very, very uncomfortable, she recalls.

“I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with those around me,” Washington, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling her assortment of challenges as it pertains to sharing her personal testimonies. “So it made things more challenging to overcome. Now, I’m seeking to encourage someone’s heart so they would know they’re not alone.”

“I’ve had the desire to write a book for a long as I can remember,” Washington, a native of Cade, Louisiana — “Some the greatest things have come from some of the smallest places on the map,” she said of her rural hometown — who currently resides in the Houston area. “I recall having the desire to write a book as early as my adolescent years. So what was simply a desire has become reality.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through “I RISE,” Washington emphasized, among other things, that, “It is nearly impossible to have healthy relationships with others when you’re separated from yourself within.”

Now that her published work has come to fruition, not only has Washington broken out of her comfort zone — both in the natural and spirit — but, to her credit, she’s going to great lengths to help others with similar personalities to follow suit.

South Carolina Pastor TrVera Williams leading God’s people to make a ‘U Turn’ for Christ

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PASTOR TRVERA WILLIAMS 


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)


Just after midday EST on Thursday, TrVera Williams took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather intriguing and thought-provoking video.

The footage before her gallery of social media followers read: YOU ARE NEXT IN LINE FOR A MIRACLE.

Ahhh…just the ideal message by this devout, big-hearted woman of faith whom, to her credit, is being used by God to advance the kingdom unlike never before, for such pivotal time as now. 

“When the Lord placed in my spirit to transition, I just didn’t see how that would work,” Williams, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining in great detail the events that had ultimately given way to her establishing a ministry. “Being single and the sole bread winner, my questions were: How am I going to pay my bills and what am I going to do with the business bills?”

U-TURN INTO MORE SUCCESS — A native of Jamestown, South Carolina, Trvera Williams has made some pretty remarkably and progressive strides as the Founder and Senior Pastor of U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries, Inc., which will be celebrating five years of existence in what has been deemed Harvest Celebration 2018, a three-day, power-packed event that will take place November 16-18.

As Williams consequently found it, because her calling to the ministry essentially was God’s will, it was also, by all accounts, His bill.

Yep, that’s just like God.


“The Lord told me that He would take care of me and that I was not to go get another job, but my job was to get up every morning, get dressed and go upstairs and spend time with Him. Initially, fear and anger were present, because I didn’t understand why God would take something away that He told me to build.” — Pastor Trvera Williams 


That Williams has steadfastly obeyed the Voice of God has benefited her mightily since she ceremoniously delved off into ministry full time.

SOLID CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION — Having grown up in what is known as the Jehovah Holiness Church, Williams and her family, she explained, were affiliated with the First Born Church Of The Living God, a denomination that is based in Waycross, Georgia.

A native of Jamestown, South Carolina, Williams has made some pretty remarkably and progressive strides as the Founder and Senior Pastor of U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries, Inc., which will be celebrating five years of existence in what has been deemed Harvest Celebration 2018, a three-day, power-packed event that will take place November 16-18.

A non-denominational institution that Williams founded in November 2013, U Turn For Christ is housed in the historic Berea area of Greenville, South Carolina, which is part of the Greenville, Mauldin, and Easley metropolitan statistical areas — a town that is comprised of roughly 14,295 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

“He then said He was taking it away, but, instead, I was trading in my business, Serenity Rehab And Wellness Center, for something better,” said Williams, recalling the infancy stages of her ministry.

Interestingly, U Turn For Christ’s regular worship services took place in the gymnasium of Williams’ place of business in Winter 2013.

Today, however, this up-and-coming ministry’s present site is located at 6243 White Horse Road, Suite F in Greenville.

A church whereby this clergywoman is widely known for emphasizing the spirit of excellence throughout the Body of Christ and in the community, Williams’ professional ministerial resume is such that she isn’t just known for being a solid and notable pastor.

To her credit, coupled with the divine purpose for which she was created, Williams is widely known also as a godly mentor to a host of leaders, particularly those whom likewise have been called to the ministry.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — In 2017, Williams witnessed the release of her book entitled, “A Journey With A Promise,” an awe-inspiring written document that is comprised of poems, as well as recording an inspirational scripture and Prayer CD entitled, “Worship In The Word With Anointed Keys.”

Credit her notable and rich upbringing in the church as amongst the reasons Williams is yet witnessing her destiny unfold right before her eyes.

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, you can do all things through Christ Who strengthens you, be who God has called you to be,” said Williams, explaining what were amongst the key and strategic values her parents taught her as a child.

Having grown up in what is known as the Jehovah Holiness Church, Williams and her family, she explained, were affiliated with the First Born Church Of The Living God, a denomination that is based in Waycross, Georgia.

The daughter to a mother, who was an evangelist and father, who was a deacon, Williams practically grew up in the church.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For what’s it worth, that Williams had begun preaching the gospel at the tender age of 16 essentially was a prelude to what is taken place at this stage in her life, a trend that was highlighted by her officially accepting her calling, thus selling out solely to God in 1999.

“I grew up, singing in the choir, being active in the youth department, on speaking programs for youth district meetings,” said Williams, once of a product of the historic Church of God In Christ. “(I also) transitioned into playing the drums and then the keyboard of which I continue to play.”


For what’s it worth, that Williams had begun preaching the gospel at the tender age of 16 essentially was a prelude to what is taking place at this stage in her life, a trend that was highlighted by her officially accepting her calling, thus selling out solely to God in 1999.

How else to explain why she was next in line for a miracle all along?

“My mother says that when I was younger I would preach to my stuff animals,” Williams jokingly said, but with a straight face.

LET US GO INTO GOD’S HOUSE — A non-denominational institution that Williams founded in November 2013, U Turn For Christ is housed in the historic Berea area of Greenville, South Carolina, which is part of the Greenville, Mauldin, and Easley metropolitan statistical area, a town that is comprised of roughly 14,295 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

Much to her delight, she routinely preaches before people from various walks of life, people who are discouraged and wounded and spiritually incarcerated, people who are in dire need to change the overall landscape of their lives, all the while drawing closer to God in the process.

After all, this is what making a U-Turn for Christ is all about.

“This testimony shows me how I thought I believed and trusted (God), but I saw that I believed as far as the bank account and the pay day, because I knew with my profession, I would not be jobless,” said Williams who, last year, witnessed the much-anticipated release of her book entitled, “A Journey With A Promise,” an awe-inspiring written document of poems. “But this test has helped me stand and continue to build U Turn For Christ Evangelistic Ministries on a sure foundation.”

APPLE OF GOD’S EYE — Much to her delight, Williams routinely preaches before people from various walks of life, people who are discouraged and spiritually incarcerated, people who are in dire need to change the overall landscape of their lives, all the while drawing closer to God in the process. After all, this is what making a U-Turn for Christ is all about.

A solid, faith-based foundation that undoubtedly will stand the test of time with God, its Helper, leading the way.

“Throughout the transition period and for about six months,” said Williams, “not one bill went unpaid, and many bills were written off, all because my faith came up.”

Indeed it deed.

For five years and counting.

Yep, that’s just like God.

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Toya Knowles doing it big in Texas as successful salon owner

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES TOYA KNOWLES


DALLAS — Toya Knowles is a proud native of Illinois.

Much to her delight, she’s doing things big in Texas.

Consider, for instance, the awe-inspiring passion for her vision, a development to which Knowles essentially was introduced way back when she was in grade school — the sixth grade to be technical.

“I got a full ride to Lewis University in Lisle, Illinois on an academic scholarship,” Knowles, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining in great detail how she had managed to discover her God-orchestrated gifts. “However, I knew since I was in sixth grade that I wanted to do hair. I was that kid in the neighborhood doing everyone’s hair.”

REPRESENTING “THE CHI” WELL — A native of Chicago, Toya Knowles, 47, has flourished mightily, thus made a name for herself as one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest beauty professionals and salon owners.

In what undoubtedly has become a remarkable sequence of events, Knowles has gone from one of the neighborhood’s most sought-after hair stylists to one whom, well, is doing big things in Texas.

A native of Chicago, Knowles, 47, has flourished mightily, thus made a name for herself as one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest beauty professionals and salon owners.

Once a stellar and talented multi-sport athlete, Knowles wasted little time delving off into this ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry, having made the leap into her selected field immediately after earning her high school diploma from Chicago’s Harvard St. George.

DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — Knowles’ salon — located at 12021 Dallas Parkway, Suite 132 inside of Phoenix Suites in nearby Frisco, Texas — will go into full operations October 16.

“Once high school was over, I went straight to beauty school,” Knowles said. “I believe I am more of a beauty coach. I love share everything I know and learn with everyone. Sharing is caring.”

As for how her competitive drive has greatly helped propel her to function in her element for such a time as now, Knowles contends that such a drive doesn’t really exist as it pertains to her profession.

Knowles’ salon, located at 12021 Dallas Parkway, Suite 132 inside of Phoenix Suites in nearby Frisco, Texas, will go into full operations October 16.

“When I think competitive, I think of competing with someone, and for me, it’s never been about competing with anyone,” Knowles said. “It is just doing what I love and continued learning and growing at what I love to do.”

Like a number of her peers and colleagues, Knowles was destined from the outset to — for a lack of better words — get in where she fits in.

THE BUSINESSLIKE APPROACH — As for how her competitive drive has greatly helped propel her to function in her element for such a time as now, Knowles contends such a drive doesn’t really exist as it pertains to her profession.

Look at her today, a proud native of Illinois whom, much to her delight, is doing things big in Texas.


“I believe there’s always room for anybody in this career as it’s a billion dollar  industry, so it’s no need to compete. It’s (all about being) inspired by other people to allow you to continue to grow and being around like-minded people. I simply just love what I do. I love to see everyone that sits in my chair feel good about themselves and, for me, it’s not just about focusing on the outside. It’s about focusing on the inside as well.” — Texas Entrepreneur Toya Knowles 


With her continuous progress as a thriving businesswoman has emerged an assortment of lofty goals and ambitions, something about which Knowles is empowered to tackle head on.

GOD’S PLAN — In what undoubtedly has become a remarkable sequence of events, Knowles has gone from one of the neighborhood’s most sought-after hair stylists to one whom, well, is doing big things in Texas.

“My goal was to go to Jones Commercial Career Academy to take business management in my junior and senior year, then go to hair school,” Knowles said. “But when the public schools went on strike, my dad made me stay in private school.”

Despite those assortment of obstacles, Knowles steadfastly kept her focus on what mattered most — her monumental vision of fulfilling her goals and ambitions.

And that she has surely done, a trend that has given way to her savoring the best of both worlds, both in the Windy City and Big D.

“As of now, my venture has allowed me to build two amazing clienteles in Chicago and Dallas,” Knowles said. “Even though I no longer do hair in my home town, I still get phones calls on a weekly basis about my services in Chicago from my YouTube a channel. And the best part is I’m still very close to all my clients, who have now turned into friends and family. I don’t care to say clients.  I prefer friends and family.”

Speaking of family, Knowles is especially grateful to hers for helping to steer her in the right directions, particularly as it relates to maximizing her potential in such a competitive and popular industry.

“Well if I had to say who inspired me, I will have to say my daddy, even though he was totally against me going to hair school,” said Knowles, who also credits her mother, grandmother, and a host of others for their valiant support. “It made me want to show him how much I was passionate about it and, once he saw me in action, he became my No. 1 fan.”

‘NOT TODAY, DEVIL’ — Despite those assortment of obstacles, Knowles steadfastly kept her focus on what mattered most — her monumental vision of fulfilling her goals and ambitions.

Fortunately for her and to her distinctly unique credit, Knowles has at her disposal a slew of solid and dedicated fans and supporters, many of whom make up the very clients — err, family and friends — she routinely services.  

“My personal mission is to impact anyone who sits in my chair and to teach them how to create their blueprint for their lifestyle,” said Knowles whom, on November 5, will be launching a 16-week course on short hair. “I believe when you have people that inspire you and poured into you, it’s only right to give back what you have learned . You must pay it forward.”

To her credit, she certainly paying it forward virtually daily, all the while doing things big in Texas in the process.

Southern Mississippi businesswoman Michelle Barefoot can be appropriately deemed a serial entrepreneur

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE BAREFOOT


Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Hattiesburg, Mississippi-area businesswoman customarily wears.

For starters, Barefoot is the owner and chief executive officer of Barefoot Footography, LLC, whereby she is the featured photographer and specializes as a graphic artist.

Or as Barefoot eloquently puts it…

DESTINY STEPS — Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur. Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Houston-area businesswoman customarily wears.

“I am an-all occasion photographer,” Barefoot, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, introducing her featured venture that was established in 2008.

Besides being afforded the luxury of displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

A marketing-oriented venture that is powered by what is known as the Plan B Marketing Group, MBarefoot Marketing is comprised of solutions for small businesses and is centered mostly on helping entrepreneurs do their business better.

Also, there is another side of Plan B, Barefoot acknowledged, that is called Plan B Income Solutions, whereby she routinely helps individuals create secondary incomes while working from home on a part-time basis, mostly notably until their residual income will give way to them retiring from their respective jobs.

But wait. That isn’t all that this progressive and resourceful businesswoman does.

That’s because Barefoot is the co-owner of Media Magnets, a business that is centered largely on helping increase individuals and/or business owners’ presence via social media and other public platforms.

BIRTHED FOR SUCCESS — As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“It’s important to keep your message before your intended audience,” Barefoot said. “Not everyone understands the different algorithms associated with Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. We can help by boosting posts, likes, videos, and more, and by teaching people the importance of how to use the different social media platforms such as using hash tags on Instagram to get people engaged in your posts.”

In addition, Barefoot is heavily affiliated with NectarKast, whereby she serves as a Regional Dealer for this proximity marketing company.

“We offer 100 and 300 meters — that is the same as a football field or three football fields in all directions — beacons that help get your message out to where everyone’s eyes are on his or her cell phone,” Barefoot said. “A 40-character message is sent to a Bluetooth activated Android device, and once the message is delivered, the recipient can click on the notification and it will take them to a website, landing page, or even a personal social media page.

A TRUE TALENT — Besides being afforded the luxury of which displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

“These small devices are half the cost of other devices and in an independent study, it works more effectively and efficiently than our competitors devices. My partner and I started with this company because of the vision and the integrity of the developers/owners. “

Also, Barefoot is an Independent Consult for Scentsy.

“To think of the journey I have been on, it nearly wears me out to just think of it,” Barefoot said. “I worked predominantly in the medical field for 24 years with the last ten (years) or so in the mental health arena. The Lord knew what He was doing, placing me in the particular area at that particular time in my life.”

As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Such a trend, to her credit, has benefited her mightily.

How else to explain why she can, by all accounts, be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneurship?

“My resilience comes from the many trials and tribulations I have been through,” Barefoot said. “Many people would not have survived just a few of life’s travesties that have been placed in my way, but the obstacles only caused me to be stronger. God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers and, evidently, He thinks I am one tough soldier.”

HOLDING HER OWN — “Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

By and large, amongst the things about which she is especially appreciative is the fact that she is fulfilling the purpose for which God has created her.

How remarkably impressive for this, a well-respected businesswoman, who can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

“There is so much I love about my businesses,” Barefoot said. “I am thankful I can work from home and work into the night, because I am a night owl and definitely not a morning person. I prefer to get up late and work extra late into the night or early morning.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

“The diversity also allows me to leave home when I need to and travel if and when it is possible,” Barefoot continued. “I am a self-motivator and I work best alone or with a select few. I am not the ‘work in a cubicle from 9-to-5’ type person. I never have been and never liked that setting.”

Amongst the obvious reasons is that she’s functioning fervently in her element as a progressive, resourceful businesswoman.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats she customarily wears in the process.

South Carolina author Ayan Mobley’s new book provides a unique twist to military life for single mothers

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES AYAN MOBLEY 


Amongst Ayan Mobley’s resolutions heading into 2018 was to start and finish her first book.

Much to her delight, she’s done just that, having composed a rather informative and compelling project that figures to impact single mothers from various walks of life.

“The reason for producing my book was to share awareness concerning life as a single parent, as well as an African-American female drill sergeant from the perspective of a child,” Mobley told Making Headline News this week.

MOBLEY’S MAKING MUCH NOISE — A project that is uncharacteristically short in length — 28 pages to be technical — Ayan Mobley’s new book entitled, “My Mommy Is A Drill Sergeant,” is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release and, to her credit, it has already created an awe-inspiring buzz.

The book to which Mobley is alluding is her recently-released written document entitled, “My Mommy Is A Drill Sergeant.”

A project that is uncharacteristically short in length — 28 pages to be technical — Mobley’s “My Mommy Is A Drill Sergeant” is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release and, to her credit, it has already created an awe-inspiring buzz.

PURCHASE AYAN MOBLEY’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Mommy-Drill-Sergeant-Ayan-Mobley/dp/1732613109

A MUST READ — To her credit and because of the divine calling on her life, it’s safe to assume that Mobley’s testimonies are having influential impacts amongst military moms around the country — and even outside of the United States.

“I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from people in my own demographic, as well as others who are not familiar with the lifestyle of a military family,” Mobley, a native of Washington, D. C. who currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina. “Women in the military still seem to be a new concept for many people.”

That black women have found their way into various branches of the military is something that should never be taken for granted, much less overlooked, Mobley hinted.


“Black female drill sergeants in the Army were not as common as they are right now, and being a single parent as a drill sergeant is completely new. Most people are amazed by the amount of activities that a person in my position accomplishes in the course of a day or what my job entails.” — Drill Sergeant Ayan Mobley 


RAISING THE BAR — That black women have found their way into various branches of the military is something that should never be taken for granted, much less overlooked, Mobley hinted.

That Mobley is afforded the luxury to juggle her assortment of duties as a well-respected drill sergeant and a devoted mother, it is due in large part to her valiant contributions regarding these trends that essentially have brought about a renewed sense of enthusiasm for a number of women, particularly those whom likewise serve their country as single mothers.

“I never thought in a million years that I would be a drill sergeant or be able to be a great influence on others,” Mobley said. “Sometimes, God causes you to have certain experiences so that you can be a testimony to others.”

To her credit and because of the divine calling on her life, it’s safe to assume that Mobley’s testimonies are having influential impacts amongst military moms around the country — and even outside of the United States.


STANDING OVATION — “I have gotten a lot of positive feedback from people in my own demographic, as well as others who are not familiar with the lifestyle of a military family,” Mobley, a native of Washington, D. C. who currently resides in Columbia, South Carolina. “Women in the military still seem to be a new concept for many people.”

“Being a drill sergeant as a single parent is one of the hardest task that I have completed to date, and without His grace and mercy, I would not have been able to accomplish the things that I have accomplished, and been able to have the necessary experience, and know how to be inspired to write a book about my experiences and share what I have been through with others,” Mobley said. “Raising a child alone should never stop you from being the best you can be, and I have been able to do it with God’s help.”

Now for this notable disclaimer, Mobley acknowledged.

“I know that God has so much more in store for me,” she said without hesitation. “I do plan to make my children’s book a series that’s geared toward letting everyone have a glimpse on what it feels like for a child to grow up in a military community especially as a minorities. I am also in the process of creating a blog entitled, ‘Military Mocha Mommy,’ which is a blog that shares resources and experiences about raising children as an African-American female service member.”

For what it’s worth, Mobley is especially grateful of the fact that she has been blessed to carry out her long-awaited vision in the form of a book, which is continuous, yet brief page-turner.

“The divine message that I am sending to my audience is the importance of family and the importance of children knowing what their parents do for a living and the fact that we set the example for our children,” Mobley said. “Our children are watching and emulating everything we do.”

Mobley also has announced the startup of her forthcoming organization called, “Military Mocha Mommy,” which will center largely on providing support and resources for military mothers and their families.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS — That Mobley is afforded the luxury to juggle her assortment of duties as a well-respected drill sergeant and devoted mother, it is due in large part to her valiant contributions regarding these trends that essentially have brought about a renewed sense of enthusiasm for a number of women whom likewise serve their country as single mothers.

As for her itinerary, Mobley will be on hand for the Child Youth Services of Fort Jackson on September 24, during which she will be hosting a presentation and reading her book.

Also, Mobley said additional speaking engagements and round table discussions are presently in the works.

Chicago entrepreneur BreAnna Dante’ Watson’s business is a godly thing of beauty

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES BREANNA DANTE’ WATSON


If, by chance, there was such a thing as placing someone’s face alongside the familiar Biblical passage that is Psalm 139:14, one would be hard-pressed not to erect BreAnna Dante’ Watson’s alongside it.

For starters, Watson could be appropriately described as one who knows full well she is fearfully and wonderfully made in God — which, to her distinctly unique credit, essentially sums up why she routinely exemplifies such a trend through her business-related endeavors.

A native of Chicago, Watson is an accomplished businesswoman as owner and CEO of Dante’ Image Consulting & Beauty and Beauty Is My Ministry.

Having labeled beauty as a ministry, of sorts, Watson is the afforded the golden opportunity to function as a consultant, wardrobe stylist, a professional MUA, as well as a mentor through a business venture whereby she boasts more than a decade of professional experience.

Much to her delight, her ability to bask in the glory of her element generally begins with the notion that she is fearfully and wonderfully made in God.


“I have mastered the physical aspect of the beauty industry, the makeup, the clothing, the hair, etc. But as a minister, it is most important to me to deal with how my clients, mentees, etc., feel on the inside.” — BreAnna Dante’ Watson


“I have always had a love for all things, fashion and beauty, since I was a little girl and it grew into a passion of mine as I got older,” Watson told Making Headline News during an interview this week. “I have always had an eye for putting outfits together, and the Lord blessed me to be very good at what I do. He blessed the work of my hands, so everything I touch, all the outfits I put together, and all the makeup I’ve done, I’ve done them extremely well. That’s why I’m here, to coach in the key areas of visual impact.”

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — A native of Chicago,
BreAnna Dante’ Watson is an accomplished businesswoman as owner and CEO of Dante’ Image Consulting & Beauty and Beauty Is My Ministry.

A business that accommodates people of all ages, Watson acknowledged that amongst her greatest fulfillments as a young entrepreneur is her ability to strategically bring to life the visions of her clients.

“There is no greater feeling for me than seeing a person smile, because they look and feel beautiful and I had something to do with that,” Watson said. “However, it’s more than just the physical outside appearance but, more important, how they feel on the inside, which is why I started Beauty Is My Ministry.”

For what it’s worth, it is a thriving, progressive ministry that has become a fixture, particularly in the Body of Christ.

HOOKIN’ THEM UP — A business that accommodates people of all ages, Watson acknowledged that amongst her greatest fulfillments as a young entrepreneur is her ability to strategically bring to life the visions of her clients.

Because, after all, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with church folk looking as sharp as a tack when preparing for worshipping.

“I have mastered the physical aspect of the beauty industry, the makeup, the clothing, the hair, etc.,” Watson said. But as a minister, it is most important to me to deal with how my clients, mentees, etc., feel on the inside.”

More than anything, Watson emphasized, her work in centered largely on executing her skills and mechanics, according to God’s purpose.

“I don’t want what I do to be a cover up or mask of God’s work, but simply an enhancement,” Watson explained. “I say it all the time that I’d be remiss if I did someone’s makeup or enhanced their wardrobe only for them to look in the mirror and still not feel beautiful or still be broken, because the things that are going on the inside have not been dealt with. So it’s much more than the physical.”

While a majority of her clients are based in Chicago and the surrounding areas, Watson will undoubtedly have the numerous opportunities to expand and promote her business in other parts of the country, particularly when traveling to different states to work and engage in ministerial duties.

“God’s willing, I will be able to touch the nations soon,” Watson, a 2006 graduate of Grafton (Massachusetts) Memorial Senior High School, said. “My vision is to motivate young women to identify and walk in their true beauty and purpose and have a heart like Christ. That is the ultimate beauty and to bring a little more style and class to everyone’s world.”

SPIRITUAL SWAG — While a majority of her clients are based in Chicago and the surrounding areas, Watson will undoubtedly have the numerous opportunities to expand and promote her business in other parts of the country, particularly when traveling to different states to work and engage in ministerial duties.

All the while greatly enabling them to realize they, too, are fearfully and wonderfully made in God.

Having enrolled at the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago, where she studied Fashion Design, Watson will be a presenter during “Beauty Camp,” an event for young girls October 20 in nearby Calumet City from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST.

THE PSALM 105:1 FACTOR — “There is no greater feeling for me than seeing a person smile, because they look and feel beautiful and I had something to do with that,” Watson said. “However, it’s more than just the physical outside appearance but, more important, how they feel on the inside, which is why I started Beauty Is My Ministry.”

“I’ve been blessed to have some amazing folks, who have inspired and pushed me to go after my visions and purpose,” said Watson, who credits her Pastor, Prophet Tyree Beard and his wife, Lady Jennifer Beard (The City of David Movement of Chicago), as well as Elder Takaira Milton for having monumental impacts on her sustained success.

“I constantly honor (my spiritual leaders) because had it not been for them and their constant push and prayers and covering, I would not be the woman and preacher I am today. They are the best.”
