I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


BLESSED BEYOND MEASURES

THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING — Because she stayed true to herself, because she stayed with God, the Giver of life, what she had ultimately discovered was that God strategically positioned her so that He could, in turn, blow her mind. And so it came to pass, the startup of Celest Taylor’s progressive, flourishing business venture that is Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings LLC, her Phoenix, Arizona-based venture that is centered largely on having a global impact, most notably through the ever-so-competitive empowerment industry.

For Taylor, a native of Philadelphia, her rise to achieving entrepreneurship success didn’t come easy.

Rather, it came full circle amid arguably the most downtrodden season of her young life.

Also the founder and CEO of Sisters Blessing Sisters & Blessed Kings United LLC, Taylor established her featured venture after the death of her oldest son, Edward Taylor, whose life was tragically cut short on July 17, 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina.

Left to recall his awe-inspiring memory and carry out his legacy, Taylor, at some point in time, sensed she had no choice but to become totally dependent and reliant of God for some much-needed sense of direction.

She’d be the first to admit she’s glad she did.


REMEMBERING EDWARD

“I made a promise (to God) that each year, we’d honor Him by honoring others (through) giving,” said Taylor, whose empowerment venture accommodates individuals ranging in ages 25-to-75 years of age. “We have something for everyone.”

To her credit, Taylor’s venture has greatly afforded her the golden opportunity to impact and inspire the masses in such places as Boston, New York City, Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Phoenix, as well as in Beverly Hills, California, where she will host a women’s event in the foreseeable future.

Also the founder and CEO of Sisters Blessing Sisters & Blessed Kings United LLC, Taylor established her featured venture after the death of her oldest son, Edward Taylor, whose life was tragically cut short on July 17, 2007 in Asheville, North Carolina.

“We’re also rebuilding and starting over worldwide through Google and Instagram,” Taylor said. “(We want) to give back and make a difference and build our outreach and motivational (speaking) events and venues.”

Much to her delight, Taylor has been afforded the golden opportunity to expand her immeasurable empowerment gifts, considered she recently hosted what is known as “Our Blessed & Beautiful Beginnings Sisters Breast Cancer Awareness Luncheon,” as well as “Our Sisters Blessing Sisters Domestic Violence Awareness Prayer Dinner.”

October is recognized annually as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a campaign to increase awareness of the disease. October also is recognized annually as National Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

Also, in December, Taylor will be host what is known as “Women United Worlwide A Celebration of Women.”


“And I love it,” Taylor said of her assortment of public appearances and speaking engagements. “That’s my goal each day (to esteem others daily) and leave out the door, knowing I’m making a difference and changing a life with love, kindness, compassion, wisdom, and no nonsense.”


All things considered, Taylor doesn’t shy away from the notion that the immeasurable strides she’s making throughout the kingdom is what her late son would have wanted.

Taylor earned an Associate’s Degree in Liberal Arts and Health Care Studies from Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. She’s currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science Degree from Strayer University.

Amid rash of setbacks, Maryland author Lawan D. Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity’ book is officially released


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


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Lady Lawan D. Ferguson, an Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author, recently unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”

Come hell or high water, say this about Lady Lawan D. Ferguson:

She’s undoubtedly going to find the strength to tell of God’s goodness and mercies, courtesy of a few life-changing testimonies.
Just recently, in fact, this Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author steadfastly unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”
A book that made its ceremoniously launch in May 2019, but was released approximately a month later, Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain” singles out the dreaded adversary, during which this writer says customarily unfolds in our lives to keep us paralyzed and from reaching our fullest potential in God, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at Amazon.com.

PURCHASE LADY FERGUSON’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.ca/Overcoming-Adversity-Pushing-Past-Pain/dp/1099733634

“We feel trapped and oftentimes not able to find a way of escape,” said a spokesperson for Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.’ “Through the roughest of trials and tribulations, we forget that we serve a mighty God who can do all things but fail. ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain’ is a book of personal testimonies that will enlighten, inspire, encourage, teach and motivate you to push beyond those difficult times and to trust God when in the midst of it all.”

A 145-page book that Ferguson began assembling two years ago, her latest written work initially was comprised of a dozen authors, a few of whom fell off from the project amid what the featured writer describes as a flurry of “setbacks, restructures, and reorganizations.”

Consequently, that gave way to a brief delay until “God was able to cut out the riffraff,” Ferguson said, thus reconstruct a group with what she dubs a “chosen generation of eight amazing co-authors.”

A book signing for Ferguson’s latest book is scheduled for August 24 at the Holiday Inn Reagan National Airport, located at 2650 Richmond Highway in nearby Arlington, Virginia.


SAVE THE DATE

After forming a strategic team of authors, Ferguson had managed to spearhead and move forward with a spiritually-empowering book that figures to become a fixture in the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

“This book is to encourage, inspire, motivate, and aid others to trust God in all they do,” Ferguson told Making Headline News this week. “God has called me to be a light in a world of darkness and to have compassion for people and deep passion for (Him). God has called me to be an ambassador for the kingdom, to minister the word of God and to aid others in reaching their fullest potential in a purposed-filled life.”

A book that’s a little more than a month removed from its release, the feedback for Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain” has been mostly favorable, she said.

“(The) testimonials of the readers are very positive,” Ferguson said. “People are being healed, set free, and delivered as a result of reading these awesome and Holy Ghost-inspired testimonies.”

A native of Washington, D.C., Ferguson is an accomplished licensed minister and an ordained deaconess, who serves as a trustee at Christ Creative Baptist Church (or CCBC) in nearby Temple Hills, Maryland.

As for her notable authorship tenure, she’s made valiant contributions to other collaborative and bestselling projects: “Perfectly Imperfect: Seeing Yourself Through The Eyes Of God” (released in July 2016); “I Survived: Written By Survivors for Survivors” (released on April 5, 2019).

She founded and established leadership to the CCBC Women’s ministry, “Sisters Aiding In Transforming Sisters” (or S.A.IN.T.S.), which strategically focuses on and aids in cultivating, redesigning, transforming, encouraging, motivating, uplifting, and empowering women in their individual and spiritual lives.

Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Lady Ferguson, this devout woman of faith is married to the Reverend Dr. George St. Anthony Ferguson, who is the Founder and Senior Pastor of CCBC.

Her educational resume includes having earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management, a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Theological Studies, a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Acquisitions, and a Master’s certificate in Government Contracts.

Interestingly, Lady Ferguson has served over 28 years in federal government and is presently a licensed coach, as well as a financial aid and college mentoring coach.

As for her latest book, Ferguson is especially grateful of the notion that it is as good as advertised.

“(I just want? to help someone get through a rough time in life by sharing encouraging testimonies of triumph over adversity,” she said.

Well said by this, a true overcomer in Christ.

Philadelphia-area author composes spiritually-empowering book amid her father’s heartbreaking demise


And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter, that He may abide with you forever. (John 14:16 KJV)


GOD TO THE RESCUE

REMEMBER DAD — Keacha Lenette is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering written work entitled, “A Talk With My Dad,” a compelling and awe-inspiring project she began composing earlier this year.

After the sudden demise of her father, Keacha Lenette was in dire need of a comforter.

To the rescue: the Holy Spirit, just as God pledged He would.
“God gave me the vision to write this book in February 2019,” Lenette, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that led to her finding her niche in the world of authorship.
The book to which Lenette is alluding is spiritually-empowering written work entitled, “A Talk With My Dad,” a compelling and awe-inspiring project she began composing earlier this year.

BUY AUTHOR LENETTE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.gloriousworkspublishing.com/

As Lenette explained, her quest to assemble her new book began amid the recent death of her dad, whom obviously was one of the closest persons to this young and gifted Pennsylvania writer.

Pre-sale orders are effectively underway for Lenette’s “A Talk With My Dad.”

“I wanted to talk to him about the events occurring in my life,” said Lenette, explaining in great detail the notable vision for having composed her book. “Although, I could no longer have a conversation with my dad, I still had the ability to express myself and be heard.”

As for the single, most underlying reason for having written “A Talk With My Dad,” Lenette doesn’t shy away from the notion that her latest project has aided her mightily, particularly with regards to weathering these sometimes rocky road and moments of discomfort surrounding the death of a loved one.


“I chose to produce this book, because it offered a unique way in which a grieving adult child expressed sorrow toward the loss of a parent,” — Author Keacha Lenette 


Interesting for this brilliantly crafty writer, she needed a few hours to complete a “A Talk With My Dad” book that has already generated a great deal of favorable feedback.

Chances are, such a trend won’t merely change, considering  Lenette is scheduled to host a book signing for her new project on  August 24 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. EST at Kia’s Cakes, located at 16 South Lansdowne Avenue in Lansdowne, during which she will officially release “A Talk With My Dad.”

An up-and-coming author, Lenette is a licensed practical nurse, who holds a  Bachelor of Science Degree in Religion (with a specialization in Psychology) from Liberty University.

Her passion includes —but isn’t limited to — helping others fulfill their God-given purpose. Interestingly, she’s currently pursuing a Master of Arts Degree Human Services Counseling.

Arguably the biggest reason for having assembled “A Talk With My Dad” is that family is of “great value and significance,” Lenette acknowledged.

In her book, in the fact, she cites that as one of seven children, arguably her greatest accomplishment is being the mother to “three wonderful children): NiKeacha, Edward, and Preston.

As Lenette explained, her quest to assemble her new book began amid the recent death of her dad, whom obviously was one of the closest persons to this young and gifted Pennsylvania writer.

While she describes parenting as delightful, Lenette said the exuberance of being a grandmother to Natalie, Nathaniel, and Noah is unparalleled and that she is a natural nurturer, who’s widely known for exemplifying genuine love for people.

As for her immeasurable authorship gifts through the Upper Darby, Pennsylvania-based Glorious Works Publishing, Lenette announced that another book is presently in the works is scheduled to be released sometime in 2020.

STAY TUNED — As for her immeasurable authorship gifts through the Upper Darby, Pennsylvania-based Glorious Works Publishing, Lenette announced that another book is presently in the works is scheduled to be released sometime in 2020.

“I believe as part of my purpose, God created me to be expressive and relatable,” said Lenette, while referencing and reciting the familiar Biblical passage that is 1 Corinthians 9:22. “I have become all things to all people, that by all means I might save some.”

Without question, she has God to thank, most notably for His Gift of the Holy Spirit.

Maryland author LaVerne Perlie’s ‘Born Again Daughters of Zion’ quickly creating a global buzz since its release


Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. (Psalm 105:1 NIV)


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED 

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.”

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.

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.”

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.”

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.

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.
