St. Louis author Prophetess Deborah Allen displaying unshakable faith through her book ‘Fierce’


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


FIERCE KIND OF FAITH

BUT GOD!!! A St. Louis-area Pastor, Prophetess Deborah Allen’s “Fierce” was released amid what was seemingly a trying season in the life of this devout woman of faith. Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

DALLAS — The enemy tried all he could to toss shade in her direction.

Still, Prophetess Deborah Allen was determined to stand toe-to-toe and outlast the adversary the best was she knew how — with the written word of God which, to her credit, had come wrapped up in an awe-inspiring book.
“God first gave me the vision for this book as I was driving home the end of December 2016,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.
The book to which Allen is alluding is her relatively new project entitled, “Fierce,” which officially debuted in May 2018.

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

Amongst the reasons is that when God had strategically given Allen instructions to compose her new book, it happened during a time in which her husband, Bishop Glen Allen Sr., had been hospitalized due to an ongoing back pain, as well as an abnormal X-ray and a possible infection in his kidney.

“However, we learned he had stage four cancer and it had been growing inside his body undetected for about seven years,” Prophetess Allen recalled. “This was a complete shock and stage four chronic lymphocytic leukemia. As I was driving home, I was talking to God about how hard my life seemed to be, that it had been nothing but a battle. God showed me that from the beginning He was with me.”


THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD — Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

Indeed He was — and still is.

How else to explain why “Fierce” has been dubbed a “powerful, spirit-filled book” since its much-anticipated a little more than a year ago?

“The Lord breathed upon this book and filled it with a fresh wind,” said a spokesperson for Allen’s “Fierce” in a detailed breakdown of this book at Amazon.com. “Fierce was a God-inspired book as it was being written. God’s yoke-destroying anointing was loosed as this book was being penned. God’s spirit and anointing also flows as you are reading this book. Fierce prepares, instructs, and pushes the believer to put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to stand. Stand in the Lord and be fierce.”

A book that is comprised of 176 pages in length, Allen acknowledged that this spiritually-empowering book, by all accounts, reinforces her spiritual gifts, one of which is the gift of laying on hands and declaring healing upon the live of God’s people.

“He blessed me to have the gift of healing in my hands,” Allen said. “God has sustained my husband and prayer has kept him. This is the season for God’s people to walk fiercely in him.”

Widely regarded throughout the Body of Christ as a fierce, dynamic, and powerful woman of God, Prophetess Allen currently serves as Senior Pastor of Lighthouse Apostolic Ministries of God Church, a stint she’s held for the past two decades.

In addition, she serves as Executive Director the L.A.M. Ministries Inc. nonprofit organization, has been married to Bishop Allen for more than 22 years, and is the mother of six children.

Widely known also as a millionaire childcare coach, Prophetess Allen is an accomplished entrepreneur, who is the director of Little Lights Childcare and Learning Center, a St. Louis-area facility that has been in operation for 10 years.

As for “Fierce,” Prophetess Allen is appreciative of the notion that this book has opened “so many doors that I could never imagine,” she said without hesitation.


“This book has opened global doors for me,” said Prophetess Allen, alluding to her Fierce TV Show and Fierce Radio. “I have been featured internationally, because of this book. My God…who would have known that ‘Fierce’ would become such a movement in my life and the lives of many others everywhere? I’m simply amazed.”


As she should, especially considering aside from her husband’s physical challenges, Prophetess Allen can testify of the fact that God has blessed her to survive her very own season in the wilderness.

SEASON THE REBIRTH — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

“I’ve been through molestation, an abusive first marriage, I was a battered wife, teenage mother, and countless things, yet God has birthed His purpose out of my life for His divine glory,” Prophetess said. “As a leader, I want people to know that you can live, grow, and build, despite your life’s circumstances. Jesus is able to heal, deliver, and sustain us during every season of our lives and we are fierce in Him. My book is a testimony of strength, endurance, and encouragement through the Lord.”

So much for all that shade the adversary had tossed her direction.

And, given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — both in the natural and the spirit — it’s obviously this devout woman of faith has been armed with the kind of faith that was accompanied by a great deal of FIERCE.

St. Louis author/educator Seletha Tucker attracting a wave of media coverage with four books and counting


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SELETHA TUCKER


DALLAS — Seletha Marie Head Tucker’s authorship resume is such that she’s walking steadfastly in the divine purpose for which God created her.

Especially during a notable stretch that spans somewhere in the neighborhood of six years.

That’s because between October 2012 and August 2018, Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.


TEACHER’S BOOK FAIR 

DESTINY STEPS — Between October 2012 and August 2018, St. Louis author Seletha Marie Head Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.

A St. Louis-based writer — by way of Memphis — Tucker’s latest book is entitled, “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?”

A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged had come full circle amid much reflection and brainstorming.

A MUST READ — A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged was proceeded by much reflection and brainstorming.

“I began to think about some of the things that I have been through and others have gone through, and God began to deal with me about telling my story to help others women, not just single (women), but those who feel like they have to go all out to find a husband,” Tucker told Making Headline News this week. “You hear so much about women trying to find their Boaz when the Bible says, ‘he that finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor of the Lord.’”

To her credit, Tucker has gone to great lengths through her latest book to caution women, most notably those who harbor the lofty expectation of attracting what they describe as that “perfect man” or their “Boaz,” as she appropriately singles out in her newest book.


“Many want that man to be the perfect guy, coming to them and often they are not prepared for that man, because of past relationships, hurts, and even soul ties. I want to encourage women and also help them understand what can happen when you don’t seek God for yourself and also prepare yourself for being a spouse.” — Author Seletha Marie Head Tucker 


BUY SELETHA’S FIRST BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Its-Time-Pray-Lord-Teach/dp/1478719087

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING — A 44-page written document, Tucker’s “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray” has been overwhelming dubbed a “must read,” considering it is a rather uplifting book filled with fervent prayers, many of which are accompanied by what this writer refers to as “promises to inspire, encourage, uplift, and to give you strength to make it one more day,” according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s book in an Amazon.com synopsis.

Prior to connecting with her vision to assemble a “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” book that was officially released on August 2, Tucker had authored three other books.

A longtime educator, Tucker made her authorship debut in October 2012 when she witnessed the release of her first book entitled, “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray.”

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively for children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.

In a nutshell, Tucker’s initial book is comprised mostly of prayers for practically every occasion, special days, or even that special person in your life, she acknowledged.

Then there is Book No. 2, this one that is entitled, “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together.”

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively to children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and it depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.

Not to be outdone, Tucker assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

While anxiously awaiting the last days of school before summer, Andrea finds that Melinda is not in school. What happens will both amaze and excite you as you learn about the importance of true friendship, according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” at Amazon.com.

Not to be outdone, Tucker then assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

For Tucker, an elementary school teacher in St. Louis metropolitan area who has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, she always sensed that she would ultimately delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

STAY TUNED — Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

“I began writing years ago and started sending out prayers,” said Tucker, who’s currently pursuing a Master’s in Special Education.” One of my sisters and husband suggested writing a book of prayers and I finally did in October 2012.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and late father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

That’s not all, said Tucker, whose authorship tenure has given away to her having attracted a wave of exposure through the mainstream media.

“I am in the midst of publishing my first novel, which should be out by the beginning of the year entitled, ‘Cotton Pickin Southern Belle,’” Tucker said.

Missouri Evangelist Amber Marie Brown defies slew of seemingly insurmountable odds at young age, writes encouraging book as a result

Believe It.

Receive It.

And Step Into It.

SETTING A GODLY EXAMPLE — If nothing else, Amber Marie Brown’s love for writing only heightened when she was teenager and, as a result, this proud, single mother of two eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the book entitled, Rise To The Mission.

Whenever such an intriguing, awe-inspiring catchphrase is uttered, particularly amongst those in the Body Christ then, chances are, Amber Marie Brown’s name will emerged as the center of conversation.

For the all the right reasons, too.

To grasp a thorough concept of why Brown, a Poplar Bluff, Missouri-area Evangelist, has become greatly inspired to — in sticking to the feel-good angle of this story — step into the purpose for which God created her, look no further than how her Creator deemed it essential some time ago to set her aside for His use.

As Brown vividly recalled, she began to witness flashes of her God-manifested vision at the tender age of 17, a vision that essentially had come wrapped up in a notable gift of writing.   

“God gave me the ability to write at a young age,” Brown told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “I would always have a journal with me. I started writing poems in junior high and published my first poem at 17 called, My Heart Is Open.”

And ever since Brown’s initial published piece was appropriately put on public display, it seemed she had never lost her passion for writing.

Heck, if nothing else, her love for  writing only heightened and, as a result, she eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the book entitled, Rise To The Mission.

AWWWWWWW —- For what it’s worth, it is because of Brown’s valiant contributions to the Body of Christ that God is yet rewarding her ways unimaginable.

“I got the vision for the book as I was praying one evening and reading the word,” Brown, a native of Dallas, Texas, said. “I came across Isaiah 60. At that moment, I knew that I was to put all the writing together and encourage God’s people to rise.”

Ironically, amongst the things about which Brown had ultimately discovered while composing her new book was that she simultaneously was walking in her divine calling as young minister of the gospel.

“I was starting to operate in my calling and, because of that, I knew that was my mission,” Brown explained. “But God has given each one of us a mission so I envisioned Rise To The Mission  and, after a confirming within my spirit, I started making it plain and writing the book.”

Ironically, amongst the things Brown had ultimately discovered while composing her new book was that she simultaneously was walking in her divine calling as young minister of the gospel.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Not only did Brown obey the Voice of God by diligently birthing her vision through her book but, more than anything, it’s safe to assume she was starting to have a monumental impact as it pertains to advancing the kingdom for God’s glory.

“Little did I know that the love I longed for wasn’t going to be found through people, but it would be found in Jesus Christ,” said Brown, the proud Owner and Founder of the Rise To The Mission Facebook Live Show and Amber Brown Ministries. “As I grew in my faith and, after re-committing my life and wanting a true relationship with God, I started journaling in sections.”

For Brown, it wasn’t long thereafter that such a unique trend had given way to an assortment of questions, she acknowledged.

“How did God help me learn to Love? What did I have to do? How was I going to forgive those who hurt me? But I knew I couldn’t move forward until I  did,” Brown recalled. “I wrote about those things and how God made a way (in my life)….even wrote some scriptures that I read that comforted me through each situation.”

Also, Brown writes about a slew of turbulent experiences, most notably how she had endured sexual abuse, as well as physical and mental abuse as a child, not to mention how she grew up in a home mired by alcoholism, a rather abusive household that included her having moved out on her own at just 17 years of age.

GOD’S PLAN — Not only did Brown obey the Voice of God by diligently birthing her vision through her book but, more than anything, it’s safe to assume that was starting to have a monumental impact as it pertains to advancing the kingdom’s for God’s glory.

“I graduated high school on my own at 18, then received a softball scholarship, and I’ve been 13 years clean of cocaine addiction,” explained Brown, keeping it as 100 as only she could.

Interestingly, Brown needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just two-to-three months to produce Rise To The Mission.

“When I started writing, it’s hard for me to stop,” she said.

Moreover, the message she aspires to send to her readers is to encourage them not to give up regardless of their present circumstances.

“So many are throwing in the towel,” Brown said. “So many are called, but very few really step up and take the punches. So many are hurting and don’t have anyone to encourage them and let them know that there is hope. God is using me as a voice of hope. It’s not over and we already have the victory, but not everyone knows that.”

DEFYING THE ODDS — In Brown’s Rise To The Book, she writes about a slew of turbulent experiences, most notably  how she had endured sexual abuse, as well as physical and mental abuse as a child, not to mention how she grew up in a home mired by alcoholism, a rather abusive household that included her having moved out on her own at just 17 years of age.

Well, that’ll surely preach.

As for the feedback she’s garnered since the release of Rise To The Mission, Brown is especially appreciative to those who have bought into her God-mandated vision through her book.

“It’s real and relevant, transparent yet subtle, but from beginning to end, it’s encouragement mixed with scripture and teaching,” Brown said. “All men and women, boys and girls can benefit from this book. It’s for adults and for youth. The next generation needs leaders that are not scared to Rise up and to face the challenges of life. No one likes it, but it has to be done. When parents quit or leaders quit the next generation becomes what they see. God has created me for the purpose of evangelizing.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Much to her delight, Brown’s immeasurable strides both in the natural and spirit would not be possible if not for her solid support system, which includes God as well as her Mount Calvary Powerhouse Church family, and her spiritual parents, Bishop Ron and  Lady Georgia Webb.

Aside from carrying out her calling by evangelizing the kingdom, Brown is widely known as an accomplished  Health and Fitness Consultant for Beach Body x 1 Year.

“After I had children I had lost control of my body,” Brown said. “I know what it feels like to be in a body that you’re not proud of. I chose to try Beach Body and, after six weeks, I lost 35 pounds.”

Her sustained success through weight loss has encouraged her to encourage others to follow suit.

“Since then, I’ve been coaching others how to rise above their current challenges and mentality and think, ‘I can and will win,’” Brown said. “And they rise and conquer every time.”

Much like she’s doing both in the natural and spirit.

Much to her delight, her immeasurable strides both in the natural and spirit would not be possible if not for her solid support system, which includes God, as well as her Mount Calvary Powerhouse Church family, and her spiritual parents, Bishop Ron and  Lady Georgia Webb.

“I’m big about honoring people,” said Brown, a single mother of two who currently works as a personal Representative for Rejoice Essential Publishing and as a contributing writer for Rejoice Essential Magazine, an online publication at issuu.com.

For what it’s worth, it is because of Brown’s valiant contributions to the Body of Christ that God is yet rewarding her ways unimaginable.

That, after all, practically sums she…well… Believes It.

Receives It.

And Steps Into It daily.

All while encouraging God’s people to Rise To The Mission in the process.

Dallas-Fort Worth-area businesswoman Von M. Griggs-Laws promoting workplace safety through Griggs Safety Consultants, LLC

DALLAS — Although the national economic landscape has progressed in many aspects in recent years, safety in the workplace continues to be an ongoing issue.

No one, it seems, is more aware of this downward trend than Von M. Griggs-Laws.

“(What I like the most) about my business is training employees and managers to training and educating and identifying hazards on their jobs and to prevent fatalities, personal injuries and property damages,” Griggs-Laws told Making Headline News earlier this week.

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to Griggs-Laws’ commitment and passion for eliminating job-related injuries and fatalities that have greatly inspired her to delve off into a business geared toward helping to enhance job safety.

A native of St. Louis, Griggs-Laws is owner and chief executive officer of Griggs Safety Consultants, LLC.

Based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the largest metropolitan area in the South, Griggs Safety Consultants are widely known for providing risk assessments, accident investigations, management and employee safety, not to mention health training in various occupations, most notably construction, general industry, manufacturing, oil and gas, healthcare, daycare, and recreation disciplines, among other entities.

According to VeteranOwnedBusiness.com, Griggs-Laws’ company also offers CPR and First Aid, Defensive Driving, HazWoper, H2S, and Respiratory, etc OSHA, DOT, EPA, Safeland USA and other regulatory compliance training and education. These programs can be uniquely designed for your companies most critical needs.

A TRUE PROHaving been actively involved in the job safety industry since 1985, it is because of Griggs-Laws’ lengthy, respectable track record that has greatly enabled and empowered her to educate employees on a number vital job-related subjects, most notably the significance of understanding compliance, workplace safety, the importance of saving lives, as well as the significance of minimizing job-related accidents, injuries and illnesses.

In addition, Griggs Safety Consultants specialize in an assortment training exclusively designed to suit clients’ organizational needs.

“We offer a proactive model in assisting employer and employees in their compliance initiative,” a spokesperson for Griggs Safety Consultants said. “Safety always…it begins with you.”

Griggs Safety Consultants cater to individuals ranging in ages “16 to 70ish,” Griggs-Laws acknowledged, although the retired military veteran (Air Force) pointed out that it is somewhat “now most common” to have four generations sharing the labor force, or diverse cultures.

“As our aging workforce — or baby boomers — is retiring and with the often demands of changes in our labor force, many employees are introduced to unknown hazards daily,” Griggs-Laws who holds Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Maryland, explained. “Too many lack proper knowledge and experience to work as safely as they should. However, many know and understand regulatory compliance and laws, yet choose to deviate from safe practices, often due to production demands.”

To Griggs-Laws’ credit, she managed to provide valid proof as to why her credible business is a necessity in today’s workforce.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWERCurrently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Counseling at the University of Oklahoma, Griggs-Laws is a Certified Government HSE Specialist as well as a Certified Safety And Health Official through Texas A&M.
Also, she is M/WBE & DBE Certified, is affiliated with the North Central Texas Regional Certification Agency and is
A TEEX Safety And Health Adjunct Instructor for Texas A&M.

“There were a reported 4,836 fatalities in 2015, and 2,905,900 work-related illness,” Griggs-Laws cited.

MAKING MUCH PROGRESSWithout question, given her wealth of knowledge as it pertains to reducing and eliminating workplace safety, this progressive, vibrant, well-equipped businesswoman boasts the immense skills and mechanics to make a monumental difference in today’s job market. Which, after all, essentially explains why Griggs Safety Consultants, LLC is starting to garner an array of headlines for all the right reasons.

Wait. There’s more pivotal evidence, she revealed.

“The total employer compensation costs for state and local government workers averaged (approximately) $45.93 per hour worked in September 2016, while average minimum wage is $8.25 to $10.00,” Griggs-Laws said. “The math doesn’t add up to balance business income versus employee’s worker claim costs, not to include medical treatment, cost to hire and retrain, etc. Oh…and lawsuits and legal fees.”

All of which practically sums up why Griggs-Laws’ business is, by and large, deemed a missing piece, of sorts, in today’s microwave society-oriented workforce.

Without question, given her wealth of knowledge as it pertains to reducing and eliminating workplace safety, this progressive, vibrant, well-equipped businesswoman boasts the immense skills and mechanics to make a monumental difference in today’s job market.

Which, after all, essentially explains why Griggs Safety Consultants, LLC is starting to garner an array of headlines for all the right reasons.

“Many have the delegation of safety and health for their respective employers and are often over tasked with other duties, unable to really focus on safety and health with a 24/7 approach,” Griggs-Laws explained. “They juggle duties and safety is often the first ball to drop. Griggs Safety Consultants are here to help, especially smaller company owners that are not able to have a full time SHE (or safety, health & environmental) position added to their payrolls.

“We have partnerships with other consultants that are experts within their fields and can assist with removing the guesswork — saving one life and one limb at a time,” Griggs-Laws continued. “Safety is everyone’s responsibility, whether at work, at home and in recreational activities too. Let us help you preserve your assets.”

A 38-year-old native of St. Louis, King-Durham is owner and chief operating officer of Business Solutions, a unique, credible multiple service company that offers customers a variety of professional entities that will greatly enabled them to become equipped and empowered to get a leg up in today’s ever-so-competitive job market.

Everything from assembling resumes, to resume re-writing, cover letters, and thank you letters, among other things.

Given the immense strides she has made while simultaneously finding her niche in her craft, it’s safe to assume that King-Durham, by all accounts, have connected with her passion, thus walking in her divine purpose.

“For many years, I have written resumes not only for myself, but family members, friends, and others,” King-Durham told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during a recent interview. “I have always received favorable feedback from all. As a writer (with a wealth of experience, it is my belief that my job is to construct an amazing story of (consumers’) careers that will get them seen and hopefully the call for an interview.

“My mission is to let people know that we can always do and better,” King-Durham continued. “(I teach them to) stay positive and strive to always be the best you. God has a purpose for all. It is up to us to figure out what it is and make it work.”

In detailing her up-and-coming venture, King-Durham specifically stressed that Business Solutions offer consumers:

Interview Coaching — “One must realize that the key to landing the dream job is to be prepared,” King-Durham said. “So it’s important to know that it’s not okay to just walk in an interview cold turkey or think that you can wing it. The interviewer will know. (Job seekers) must have a clear understanding of what the job is about and learn how to effectively communicate they are better suited for the position.”

Salary Negotiating Tools — “Of course, money is the driving force with regard to why we start the entire job search process,” King-Durham explains. “Depending on the position, it is quite possible the salary can be negotiated. We’ve got the tools to help you get through negotiating your next salary.”

Complaint Letters — “I offer this service simply because I am good at complaining and getting results,” King-Durham explained. “My father taught me how to write an effective letter when I have been wronged by a service or received a product that didn’t work properly. This service is for those who have had a bad experience and just don’t have the time to follow up for resolutions. We are more than happy to be the voice of the consumer when handling these issues.”

Insurance Assistance — “My career of choice initially was as Licensed Claims Adjuster for over 13 years,” King-Durham said. “Now I am not a lawyer. However, throughout the years, I have seen how people spent thousands on attorneys and it’s possible they did not need one. We will not settle claims. However, we can assist with answering questions one might have about their auto accident, injuries, or general liability claim experience.”

eeA graduate Lindenwood University, amongst the reasons King-Durham believes her business stands out is that it is a necessity of which consumers ought to take advantage.

The sooner, the better she said, because in this day and time, the job market will only become more competitive.

That is where King-Durham becomes a reliable, aggressive source of reason, particularly as it pertains to providing job seekers the right solutions to become equipped and empowered to get a leg up in today’s ever-so-competitive job market.

“I was never competitive in sports,” said King-Durham, “but always in life. For as long as I can remember, at the beginning of each calendar year, I write out short-term and long-term goals. Entrepreneurship has been on the long-term list long enough. It’s time for me to cross it off and continuing to move forward.”

This, to her credit, sums up why she’s one who aspires to see life from God’s perspective.
