GLOAL IMPACT — A book that made its official debut on November 6, 2018, Maryland author LaVerne Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” recalls, among other things, how when trials, temptation, and death strike, it can be difficult for most to find comfort or peace amidst the turmoil and the whirlwind of emotions it brings, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com.

As far as telling one’s story goes, LaVerne Perlie is only making known God’s deeds among His people.

“The power of telling your story is one of the best ways to inspire and motivate others to consider change,” Perlie told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “I believe collaboration and partnership symbolize the strength women possess. So I wanted to collect the heart of the women, capture their thoughts in writing, and demonstrate the bond of unified voices in action.
“Sharing your story opens the door to endless possibilities to make a difference in someone’s life. Now is the time.”
Indeed it is for Perlie, a Maryland-based writer, who is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring and compelling book entitled, “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.”

A book that made its official debut on November 6, 2018, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” recalls, among other things, how when trials, temptation, and death strike, it can be difficult for most to find comfort or peace amidst the turmoil and the whirlwind of emotions it brings, as mentioned in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com.

Still, each tragedy, Perlie acknowledges, is an opportunity for an amazing story that can encourage others who are experiencing their own devastation.

“Author LaVerne Perlie recognized the impact of sharing life’s heartbreaks and the healing power of prayer,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery.’

ON ONE ACCORD — A book that is comprised of 136 pages in length, Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” a is a collaborative written work that is includes contributions by authors Linda Caldwell Boykin, Carla McCray, Arvinese Reid, Jackqueline Easley, Michelle Baylor, Paula Grange, and Tawanda Holmes.

“In her first anthology, Born Again Daughters of Zion, she has compiled the stories of eight dynamic women of God who, in times of despair, experienced healing, transformation, and triumph. The words within the pages of this book are a testament to how trials connect human spirits, no matter how unique the circumstances, and that we do not have to suffer alone.”

A book that took a little more than a year to assemble, Perlie emphasized, among other things, the divine message she and her authorship team are sending to their audience is rather direct and straight to the point.

That is, “(all of us must) take authority over our lives, close the door of our past, open the door to our future, and march right into our destiny,” she said. “You are no longer an outcast. Readers should experience feelings of strength, well- being, and motivation to move forward.”

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

Interestingly, Perlie is fully persuaded that the assortment of stories that make up her latest book are, by all accounts, “touching and real,” a trend she said will likely cause readers to shed a few tears.

“The readers will feel as if they have met the authors of the chapters personally,” Perlie said. “At the end of a story, there is charge to every reader, which really is affirmations. Readers are encouraged to speak these affirmations over their lives daily and believe what they are saying.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

That’s because Perlie was apart of the collaborative book entitled, “Soul Talk 2,” another anthology project that was released in 2018, which is highlighted by her subject, “Trust God Through The Process.”

Perlie’s “Born Again Daughters Of Zion: Our Transformational Stories of Revelation Resilience and Recovery” is just a glimpse of the glory is revealing in her through her immeasurable works as an author.

As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.


“Since writing the book, many people have mentioned how this book has open their eyes to pursue their purpose in life and not to allow distractions or challenges hinder them from achieving positive outcomes,” Perlie said. “I’ve been asked to mentor, coach, teach, and speak to women ages 15 to 79.”


As Perlie’s book becomes more of a global fixture, the more golden opportunities arise for her to share of his brilliant gifts as an author.

Perlie is current on hand for the Global United Fellowship The Gathering 2019 in Nassau, Bahamas,  an event that runs through July 12 at the Atlantis Hotel and Conference Center.

She will then attend the Women In Pursuit Retreat from August 16-17, at the Bon Secours retreat Center in Marriottsville, Maryland.

“Since releasing this book I’ve been invited to speak in Harrisburg and York, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, (Washington) D.C., and churches throughout  Baltimore,” Perlie said.

IT’S ALL GOOD — As for her latest work, the feedback has been mostly favorable, Perlie said.

Without questions, she’s overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that God is steadily allowing her gifts to make room for her.

Never mind that slew of challenges that often arose to challenge her faith.

At the end of the real day, God was there all the time.

“If you desire to pursue your dream, you must understand that challenges are a part of the process to achieve the goal,” Perlie said. “How you think and respond to that challenge or barrier determines your fate. If your mind is set on pursuit, I encourage you to pursue everything without hindrance.”

Spoken like a true champion for Christ.

“Once (Polote-Williamson’s) vision was shared with me, it connected in my spirit, because I am a prayer warrior,” Dr. Holmes told Making Headline News this week.

Once Dr. Holmes had become spiritually empowered to contribute to a book that figures to garner a continuous massive presence throughout the Body Christ for years to come, he then commenced to executing a strategy to accomplished God’s will.

Pittsburgh’s Heather Lyn overcomes soft drink addiction, establishes a credible health and wellness venture


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES HEATHER LYN 


Heather Lyn would be the first to admit that she’s had her share of obstacles.

Still, she’d be the first admit that never did she allow them to deter her from living her best life.

“I’ve spent most of life sick,” Heather Lyn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “Oftentimes, things would happen to me that even the doctors couldn’t explain, yet understand.”

 

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, as well as an assortment of what she described as “physical incapabilities,” Heather Lyn recalled like yesterday how these seemingly insurmountable hurdles had eventually given way to gaining a considerable amount of weight or, as she tells it, the “heaviest I ever was.”

“No matter what I tried, nothing would take even one pound off of me,” Heather Lyn recalled. “I had a strong addiction to Diet Pepsi, an addiction that could not be broken.”

For Heather Lyn, a native of Pittsburgh, even a host of family members and close acquaintances couldn’t help lure her away from a soft drink obsession that contributed mightily to her unsatisfactory weight increase.

Then suddenly, something rather intriguing happened, something that had ultimately changed the overall landscape of her life.

“One day while talking to a friend on the West Coast, she introduced me to a product that I just had to learn more about,” Heather Lyn explained. “I told her if it’s really that good, I had to have it.”

For Heather Lyn, not only was the weight loss product “really that good,” but much to her delight, it has benefited her mightily.

Now today, Heather Lyn has emerged as progressive, thriving businesswoman, whereby she customarily encourages others to elevate their health, wealth, and happiness.

“I instantly jumped on the website and placed my order,” Heather Lyn said some health and wellness products for which she’s aiming to garner some favorable leads. “I could not wait to get this product into my hands.”

And now that this health-empowering product has altered her life for all the reasons, she’s now on a quest to help others reap and savor similar results.

“On a bright and sunny Saturday morning, I drove down to the local gas station to get my 52 ounce Diet Pepsi. I felt like I needed the jolt to get my day started,” Heather recalled. “When I returned home, the UPS driver delivered my package that I was anxiously awaiting for.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I ripped that box opened, and I followed the instructions to get this product into my system,” Heather Lyn said. “I was busy, preparing for our upcoming move and I really wasn’t thinking of anything else. Later in the day, it dawned on me how many cups of water I drank that day, while my Diet Pepsi sat idle…how many boxes I had packed, how much progress I made.”

Now that she’s fervently adopted a new lease on life through her globally-acclaimed health and wellness products, she’d be remiss if she did not encourage others to follow suit.

“For the first time in 30-plus years, I felt amazing,” Heather Lyn said in wonderment. “Knowing what this product did for me in such a short time, I knew that I could not keep this from anyone. I had to share it with everyone I knew.”

So much for Diet Pepsi.

“We all have a gift,” Heather Lyn said of a flourishing business venture she established earlier this year. “We were put on this earth with a mission. My mission is to help others elevate their health, wealth, and happiness.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.

South Jersey’s Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh set to host Daughters of Beth Empowerment Conference

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come. Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:37-39 KJV)


Given her immeasurable body of work in the Body of Christ, it’s safe to assume that Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh has become a fixture, particularly as it pertains to establishing godly connections.

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — Toshira Maldonado-McIntosh’s upcoming Daughters Of Beth Empowerment Conference figures to have a monumental impact this year, just as it has in recent years.

That, by all accounts, is amongst the notable reasons Maldonado-McIntosh’s forthcoming Daughters Of Beth Empowerment Conference figures to have a monumental impact this year, just as it has in recent years.

In offering a detailed synopsis of her conference that will take place August 18 at 9 a.m. EST at Courtyard By Marriott, located at 1001 Intrepid Avenue, in Philadelphia, Maldonado-McIntosh emphasized that this event is geared largely toward recognizing the need to address the areas of what she describes as “broken,” mostly notably areas she senses hinder and paralyzed women from achieving success.

“This conference is a gathering to focus on inner healing, personal development, and in bracing a relationship was God and each others,” Maldonado-McIntosh told Making Headline News this week. “This conference is an opportunity to grow spiritually and every woman is challenged to advance.”

Especially by way of lasting, spiritually-enhancing connections.

“Women are encouraged to make positive connections and be inspired to network in their sisterhood circles,” Maldonado-McIntosh said. “The powerful seminars and workshops have the goal of identifying strengths and inspiring sisters to live there best lives. Through segments of worship and prayer, we connect to our Heavenly Father.”

https://daughtersofbeth.com/

Interestingly and to her credit, Maldonado-McIntosh’s conference will also address a number of key issues, many of which will greatly empower women to possess and savor a healthy lifestyle.

“We want to promote self-awareness, healthy lifestyle, spirituality, and encouragement to everyone,” Maldonado-McIntosh said. “We understand the greatest commandment that God gave mankind is to love. It is out of the same spirit we gather to promote what it means to BETH.”

BETH, which headlines the mission and purpose of Maldonado-McIntosh’s conference, is an acronym that stands for: Birthing, Empowering, Teaching, and Healing.

SOLID TRACK RECORD — Currently the visionary and co-founder of the Daughters of B.E.T.H Women’s Empowerment Circle — an organization that is widely known for promoting healing and restoration from trauma and the advancement of all women — Maldonado-McIntosh’s ministerial resume includes having organized deliverance clinics, prayer and deliverance conferences and, while working alongside her husband,  she routinely ministers to those in need of one-on-one support.

Daughters Of Beth is widely known as a sisterhood empowerment group, one that is strategically birthed from the passion of promoting unity among women and sharing the love of God, Maldonado-McIntosh emphasized.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Maldonado-McIntosh is widely regarded amongst her peers as an ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ, one who appropriately developed a passion for prayer and deliverance dating back to her youth.

That a better part of her life was spent being raised by her grandmother, the late Evangelist Delilah Maldonado, Maldonado-McIntosh ironically was exposed to what is deemed the ministry of deliverance in ways unimaginable — a life-enhancing trend that essentially has equipped her to become especially effective in ministry for such a time as now.

ON FIRE FOR GOD — A native of the Bronx, New York, Maldonado-McIntosh is widely regarded amongst her peers as an ambassador for the Lord Jesus Christ, one who appropriately developed a passion for prayer and deliverance dating back to her youth.

Currently the visionary and co-founder of the Daughters of B.E.T.H Women’s Empowerment Circle — an organization that is widely known for promoting healing and restoration from trauma and the advancement of all women — Maldonado-McIntosh’s ministerial resume includes having organized deliverance clinics, as well as prayer and deliverance conferences.

Also, while working alongside her husband, she routinely ministers to those in need of one-on-one support.

As for her forthcoming conference, the feedback, as expected, has been favorable, Maldonado-McIntosh said.

BETH, which headlines the mission and purpose of Maldonado-McIntosh’s conference, is an acronym that stands for: Birthing, Empowering, Teaching, and Healing.

“Women have stated that this is an event that they would love to participate is, because they feel they can connect to each other who share their sentiments of personal development empowerment and transparency said Maldonado-McIntosh whom, in November 2017, was consecrated by Bishop Gregory Martin of Temple Beth-El Kings Dominion in Brooklyn, New York.

A licensed evangelist, Maldonado-McIntosh presently serves under Bishop Martin’s spiritual covering.

“I believe this conference will impact and advance the kingdom by bringing women together to share the love of God,” Maldonado-McIntosh added. “Networking and connection that can last a lifetime is always the goal. Sharing inspiring stories, acknowledgement of success and triumph, and being in an atmosphere without judgment.”

Philadelphia Author Charise Marie defies the urge to quit, encourages the masses through her emotionally inspiring new book

So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9 NLT)

 

For Charise Marie, giving up wasn’t an option.

PUSHING HER WAY THROUGH — And so it came to pass that in the wake of having to press and navigate her way through arguably the most turbulent times of her life, Charise Marie, a young native of Philadelphia, had become greatly inspired to pay homage to her Creator, thus share to the masses how she managed to persevere, courtesy of her newly-produced book entitled, Pushing Through.

Not on her time watch.

Not after having grown up in a Christian-based environment.

Not after having recalled all about which she’s gone through, God still provided for her a way of escape.

Time and time again.

And so it came to pass that in the wake of having to press and navigate her way through arguably the most turbulent times of her life, Charise Marie, a young native of Philadelphia, had become greatly inspired to pay homage to her Creator, thus share to the masses how she managed to persevere, courtesy of her newly-produced book entitled, Pushing Through.

Officially released on March 22, 2018, Charise Marie’s Pushing Through is her debut novel, whereby she reminisces on an array of challenges, most notably what she refers to as a life of multiple injuries, deaths, failed relationships and struggling parenthood.

SHE DID THAT, Y’ALL — Charise Marie has appropriately narrated how her tumultuous journey of being diagnosed twice with more than one mental illness. Brown, in fact, dauntlessly defines just what it means to keep moving forward, especially when keeping it moving is the only available option.

“She speaks of her unwed planned pregnancy and domestic violence that led her to her first talk show appearance,” said a spokesperson for Charise Marie’s Pushing Through in a detailed description of her book at books.google.com. “Charise takes you back on the multiple surgeries and the loss of multiple babies that led to her attempted suicide events.”

As if that isn’t enough turmoil to bring even the strongest of person to tears,  has appropriately narrated how her tumultuous journey of being diagnosed twice with more than one mental illness. Charise Marie, in fact, dauntlessly defines just what it means to keep moving forward, especially when keeping it moving is the only available option.

Not only that, as it pertains to the tear-jerking events that had ultimately fueled her desire to compose her book, Charise Marie doesn’t shy away from the notion that, well…

AWWWWWWW — Charise Marie’s bouncing baby girl was recently christened during a ceremony at her Philadelphia-area church.

Well, put it this way: She’s downright giddy of the fact that she defied the urge to quit.

“I chose to write my book, because I wanted to inspire not only women, but men as well that if you fail, keep pushing through,” Charise Marie, an accomplished Philly-area businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week. “Never give up.”

An emotional-driven, awe-inspiring written that is comprised of 222 pages, Charise Marie began writing Pushing Through toward the end of 2015 and needed just a little less than two years to complete it.

Officially released on February 2, 2018, Charise Marie’s Pushing Through is her debut novel, whereby she reminisces on an array of challenges, most notably what she refers to as a life of multiple injuries, deaths, failed relationships and struggling parenthood.

“I completed my book the end of January 2018,” Charise Marie said.

All things considered, it is due in large part to her relentless, bend-but-don’t-brake faith that had eventually infused her with the fervent desire to — you know — keep pushing through.

“My message for everyone is when you quit, you never win,” Charise Marie says without hesitation. “Falling down is an accident, but staying down is a choice and, no matter what you go through in life or how much you’re going through, every time you get knocked down, get back up and keep pushing through.”

For what it’s worth, it’s safe to assume that Charise Marie’s reading audience has embraced the proverbial spiritual gut check she essential sends through the pivotal messages in her book.

How else to explain the favorable feedback she’s garnered in such a short time frame for a book that is less than three months removed its release?

“My book was released and the feedback has been shocking to me,” Charise Marie said. “People have been telling me how inspiring it is and how awesome it is that I’ve been able to get through so many things I’ve been through in life. I’ve been told it’s also a page turner and they couldn’t put it down.”

And here’s the real bonus: Book No. 2 is presently in the works, Charise Marie announced, and is expected to hit the market sometime in early 2020.

GOD’S CHAMPION — “I chose to write my book, because I wanted to inspire not only women, but men as well that if you fail, keep pushing through,” Charise Marie, an accomplished Philly-area businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week. “Never give up.”

“God’s willing,” said Charise Marie, sounding very much like the true fighter for which she is widely known. “Writing this book has helped me to inspire others to keep the faith and keep pushing. It’s created a way for me to speak for others that went through similar things that I’ve been through but are scared or ashamed to tell their story.”

Now we know why for this brilliant, big-hearted author, giving up wasn’t an option.

Not on her time watch.

Not after having grown up in a Christian-based environment.

Not after having recalled all about which she’s gone through, God still provided for her a way of escape.

Time and time again.

Atlanta-area author Anika Ennett heeds advice of stepfather, assembles three compelling books

As the old catchphrase goes, “Mom knows best.”

For Anika Ennett, she can greatly attest that perhaps “Stepfather knows best” as well.

TRIO OF SUCCESS — Regardless of her circumstances at the time, what mattered, really, is that Virginia-based Author Ennett not only heeded the advice of her stepfather, but she took his words and wisdom and essentially ran with them. So much, in fact, that she has managed to author not one, not two, but three books.

Consider, for instance, how many years ago, Ennett recalls vividly an in-depth conversation she had with her stepfather whom, much to her delight, played an integral role with regards to helping her connect with her vision as an accomplished author.

“During that conversation, he said, “You should write a book one day,’” Ennett, who resides in Atlanta, said this week during an interview with Making Headline News. “And I said, ‘I have no idea how to write a book.’ And he said, ‘Just write…don’t worry about format, just write.’  Fast forward many years later and the thought came back up during a time when things were not at their best.”

Regardless of her circumstances at the time, what mattered, really, is that Ennett not only heeded the advice of her stepfather, but she took his words and wisdom and essentially ran with them.

So much, in fact, that she has managed to author not one, not two, but three books.

In June 2015, for instance, she witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, He S.A.W. Me!  Saved, Anointed & Walks With Me, a compelling written document that depicts a vital chapter in Ennett’s life, most notably the assortment of challenges she endured during the past three decades or so. In a detailed synopsis of Ennett’s book at Amazon.com, it reveals that her slew of testimonies surfaces largely as a result of her walk through what she describes as many dark days, not knowing who she was, all while pressing and navigating her way through the pain of rejection on many levels — low self-esteem being one of them — en route to her fully connecting with a newfound disposition on life (most notably what she labels a new perspective of how God sees her).

Then in September 2017, she authored the book entitled, Sometimes Life Has No Chill, which is a rather intriguing, provocative devotional dedicated to teenage girls.

According to an Amazon.com spokesperson for Ennett’s Sometimes Life Has No Chill, this book is widely regarded as an interactive, daily devotional, of sorts, one that addresses real life issues, all while offering solutions and allowing youths to reflect on their decisions, thus taking accountability for their own actions.

“I want our youth to get in the habit of thinking situations completely through and making informed decisions when it comes to their lives,” Ennett said of her second book.

Then there is Ennett’s latest book entitled, The Struggle Is Real: Healing For Survival, which officially made its presence on the market just last month.

“Just when you thought you had it all together, you know that you have changed, because you have the scars to prove it,” Ennett writes in a description of her latest book at Amazon.com. “Now, you’re ready to go forward in life in your marriage, business, ministry, job etc., but something else happens. Not only are you angry because you feel betrayed, but you’re confused because you are feeling some of those old emotions from the past that you knew you had taken care of.”

With three books — and counting — under her belt, Ennett doesn’t shy away from the notion that she is presently walking in the purpose for which God created her.

After all, mom knows best.

And so does stepdad as she had ultimately discovered.

“I still didn’t know where to start, because I was broken inside and I remember constantly praying and asking God to send someone in my life that could teach me more about God and He did just that,” Ennett, a native of Philadelphia, explained.

GOD’S SPOKESPERSON — As for the direct messages she aims to send to her reading audience, Ennett said, “One of the most important messages that I’m trying to get across is that women don’t have to suffer in silence and shame.  Shame keeps most people from receiving healing and that is a lie straight from the enemy.  You may have heard (the saying) ‘We are only as sick as our secrets’ So often as women, we try to live up to the expectations of society, our spouses, family and will turn ourselves inside out, just to be accepted.  Women are emotional creatures and we absorb so much from the world and when you are not healed from past experiences, it results in a mess. “

Interesting, the more godly wisdom she acquired, the more she began to witness her gift for writing come to fruition.

“I met a strong woman of God that began to teach me about God and who helped me tremendously during some of the most challenging times in my life,” Ennett said. “The prophetess encouraged me, walked with me, and confirmed a lot of things about me and helped me to see the gifts that the Lord had given me. All it took was encouragement, teaching and building my relationship with God.”

GOOD OLE DAD — Ennett recall vividly an in-depth conversation she had with her stepfather whom, much to her delight, played an integral with regards to helping her connect with her vision as an accomplished author.

“In addition to that, we want to fix everything and everybody but never want to fix ourselves,” Ennett continued. Unfortunately, sometimes we become martyrs and then become weighed down with the pressures of the world and then we don’t take time out to deal with the things that are tearing us down.”

When asked in what ways has her books become part of the purpose for which God has created her, Ennett, as forthrightly as she could be, wasted little time paying homage to her Creator.

“These books have taught me that I’m not a lost cause, neither are any other women that may be having a difficult time,” Ennett said. “The transparency that I display in my books foster an environment of understanding and it breaks the wall of shame down. My goal is to encourage other women to get healing and to stop hiding behind the pain.  The goal of the teen devotional is to open a dialogue between a daughter and her mother and guardian.”

Because after all, as the old catchphrase goes, “Mom knows best.”

Then aganin, for Anika Ennett, she can greatly attest that perhaps “Stepfather knows best” as well.

Four-time Amazon bestselling author Elona Washington making her presence felt courtesy of two awe-inspiring books

If you listen to Elona Washington talk long enough about her successful tenure as an accomplished, progressive author then, chances are, it wouldn’t take very long to grasp the notion that writing is something about which she had become passionate since she was too young to remember.

A TRUE INSPIRATION — A native of Washington, D. C., Author Elona Washington deemed it essential to finally share of her emotional, yet spiritually gut-checking experiences through her featured book entitled, From Ivy League To Stripper Life, a memoir that chronicles how her life spiraled out of control, coupled with the valiant lessons she learned along the way. Washington was also the catalyst of How Divorce Became My Deliverance, a September 2017 released anthology that Washington assembled along with a number of other accomplished authors.

“I was given the vision to tell my story as a kid and I would start but never finish,” Washington told Making Headline News during an interview this week. “I was too scared.”

Out of fairness to Washington, there is, by all accounts, a rather justifiable reason why she spent a better portion of her life gripped and saddled by fear.

“I’ve been a victim of child sex abuse since the age of five,” Washington said without hesitation. “The abuse first occurred in (Washington) D. C., and it happened again when my sister and I went to live with our mom in Princeton (New Jersey).”

As Washington vividly recalls, she encountered as many as 10 sexual abusers by the time she had turned 10 or, as she disclosed, men and boys from two different cities, all of whom never knew each other, a few of whom were well over 30 years of age.

A native of Washington, D. C., Washington deemed it essential to finally share of her emotional, yet spiritually gut-checking experiences through her featured book entitled, From Ivy League To Stripper Life, a memoir that chronicles how her life spiraled out of control, coupled with the valiant lessons she learned in the process.

A 138-page written document that officially hit the market in June 2016, Washington’s From Ivy League To Stripper Life also recalls her assortment of childhood memories, most notably those true stories from within the walls of the dreaded strip club, as well as resourceful tips and life lessons she eloquently offers to every wife, mother, and single woman.

“In these pages, you may even discover that it’s possible what you’re going through has been assigned to you,” said a spokesperson in a detailed description of Washington’s book at Amazon.com.

STILL SHE RISE — Interestingly, Washington sensed that because of the constant sexual abuse she endured as a child, she wasn’t merely equipped to become a product of her environment, particularly as it relates to advancing her education on what many consider to be college’s biggest stage.

All things considered, Washington, a native of D. C., admittedly sensed that all of her sexual abuse encounters were self-manufactured.

“I thought the abuse was my fault,” Washington said with a straight face and without hesitation. “There was something about me that made men want to have sex with me. “I thought I wasn’t protected and favored by God, so and I was meant to be nothing but a stripper.”

Interestingly, Washington sensed that because of the constant sexual abuse, she wasn’t merely equipped to become a product of her environment, particularly as it relates to advancing her education on what many consider to be college’s biggest stage.

“I wasn’t smart like my Ivy League mom and stepdad,” Washington said. “My younger sister was just as smart and it made me feel like I didn’t belong.”

And then there is Washington’s latest book entitled, How Divorce Became My Deliverance, a September 2017 released anthology that Washington assembled along with a number of other accomplished authors.

BUY ELONA’S OTHER BOOK HERE: http://elonawashington.com/product/how-divorce-became-my-deliverance/

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — A four-time award-winning bestselling author, Washington has announced that other books are on the horizon much sooner than later.

Generally, because researchers estimate that marriages have somewhere in the neighborhood of a 50 percent survival rate, Washington and eight other divorcees have joined forces to share how they collectively mourned the loss of their marriage and ultimately conquered their pain, as revealed in a detailed description of this 157-page anthology.

“As long as we have breath in our bodies, we will experience pain,” said Washington, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her audience through her books. “The divine message is that you can live free from the pain of your past. We can’t run from it or suppress it. When you do, it shows up as anger, depression, etc., and that has the ability to affect every area of your life.”

After all, Washington specifically emphasized, chronic anger, coupled with resentment can greatly affect one’s physical health, thus causing heart disease, high blood pressure,  some form of a  stroke and, perhaps insomnia.

“Learning to let it go helps us to live freely,” Washington said.

When asked in what ways her books align with the purpose for which God has created her, Washington said, “There are no accidents. God chose me to go through it all. But He also gave me the strength and courage to endure and share my story to help others.”

More than anything, Washington reiterated, sharing her slew of experiences essentially infused within her the keen ability to break the dreaded generational curses that include, among other things, single motherhood and teen pregnancy.

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — When asked in what ways her books align with the purpose for which God has created her, Washington said, “There are no accidents. God chose me to go through it all. But He also gave me the strength and courage to endure and share my story to help others.”

“My daughter is married and (she and her husband) have yet to start a family,” Washington said. “I believe this was because I always practiced age-appropriate transparency with her. I taught her how to keep safe and to tell me if anyone made her feel uncomfortable. We always had a good relationship and she knew she could confide in me.”

A four-time Amazon award-winning bestselling author, Washington has announced that other books are on the horizon much sooner than later.

“I’m thinking about compiling another anthology and another book, but right now, I designed a course for survivors,” Washington said. “It’s called ‘Survivor’s Breakthrough,’ and is a system designed for survivors to find healing, strength and the power to live a life free from the pain of their past.”

If anyone is interested in participating in the course, Elona Washington can be reached via email at: elona@elonawashington.com.

TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH: Atlanta-based businessman Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. conquers pair of tear-jerking disabilities, savors long-awaited dream in the process

As it pertains to getting the most out of life by diligently maximizing his potential, Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. has two pivotal self-originated proverbs he customarily goes by.

The first one reads: A true test of leadership is whether or not one can teach what he has learned to others. If he can do so with passion, persistence and dedication, then he emerges as a true leader.

HEART OF BROTHERLY LOVE — A native of Philadelphia, Charles Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

The second one reads: There are no road maps to life. We will encounter both good times and bad times, ups and downs, success and setbacks; I do not believe in failure, but rather learning lessons. The key is how we utilize our strengths to navigate our way through this process called life. Every lesson has a hidden blessing and every blessing has a hidden lesson. You are the author of your own book. Life will serve as the ultimate guide as we create Life Chapters.

For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

“I knew early on that I wanted to establish a business and brand that focused on providing children with a well-rounded educational foundation and allowing people to become the best version of themselves,” Coe, Jr. told Making Headline News this week.

To his distinctly unique credit, he’s doing just that.

VISION DISRUPTED — At the tender age of seven, Coe, Jr. was involved in a freak accident that, ironically, occurred on his mother’s birthday, during which someone threw a rock that landed in his left eye. As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leading out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

A native of Philadelphia, Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

Such a trend, according to Coe, Jr., is considerably the most significant time in the life of any family unit as well as the most instrumental time for children, particularly as they embark upon their educational journey together, he said.

Not only that, the proverbial early stages of the childhood development process is typically a time during which children develop independence and, most of all, began to notice the world around them, Coe, Jr. acknowledged.

 

LEAST HE FORGET — For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

Located at Philly’s 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things: “When parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

Amongst the notable reasons for this observation, Coe, Jr. said, is that children often engage in what he describes as daily meaningful activities, as well as specialized weekly projects that nurture and further develop the physical growth, social, cognitive, and emotional skills of each child within the learning center.

Moreover, Coe, Jr. said that while children typically operate on different functioning capacities, Individualized Educational Development Plans (or IEDP’s) are established by Certified Teachers to ensure a smooth educational transition as well as successful personal development. Our program welcomes and celebrates children from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

“It is our belief that diversification is key as children navigate through the world around them,” Coe, Jr. explained. “Unlike other programs within the same child care arena, IKLC enhances the overall learning process by also offering human services support as well.”

A proud graduate of Philadelphia’s historic Temple University, it is, by all accounts, because of what Coe, Jr. deems a “Turning Tragedy Into Action And Triumph” encounter that has given way to his appropriately carrying out his long-awaited vision as the face of Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC.

As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leaking out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

“My parents could not wait for an ambulance to come and decided to rush me to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where we were told that as a result of the amount of intake emergencies, I would have to wait until a bed and doctor became available,” Coe, Jr. recalled. “We couldn’t wait. My parents then rushed me to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (also known as CHOP), where I was admitted immediately.”

DREAM UNFOLDED — Located at 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things, when parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

After surgery, doctors informed the Coes that their child’s vision was completely gone as a result of a severely damaged retina that was accompanied by a fractured nose and traumatic brain injury. As if those developments weren’t enough to his rattle his family, Coe, Jr. slipped into a coma, where he would remain for approximately 45 days.

Acknowledging he wasn’t the “same little boy” that his parents knew prior to that accident, Coe, Jr. recalled having suddenly been hampered by the mindset of that of a two-to-three-year-old.

Still, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

VICTORIOUS REGARDLESS — Despite all about which he had endured, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

“The loss of my vision in my left eye turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because this has propelled me to become the person that I am today,” said Coe, Jr., who’s also widely known as an accomplished motivational speaker, disabilities advocate, entrepreneur, educator, life skills wellness coach, corporate trainer, intensive clinical case manager, trauma specialist, and mentor.

“I have never used my two disabilities as an excuse, but rather as a motivator to do great things and become great. I look at it as trying to inspire and conquer the world with one eye. I aspire to inspire. Most importantly, I want to serve as a role model for other individuals with disabilities, to know that they, too, can be successful in any endeavor they decide to pursue and that they just have to believe in themselves. I feel extremely blessed to be placed in the position that I’m in today, and this is just the beginning for me.”

As it pertains to getting the most out of life by maximizing his potential, Coe, Jr. has two pivotal self-originated proverbs he customarily goes by.

Now we know why.
