Brands Suit Warehouse is one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest hubs for stylish men’s fashion

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS

WHAT IT’LL BE? From the latest and up-to-date versions of men’s suits, shoes, neckties, to arguably some of the hottest and most sought after attires for the annual prom seasons, weddings clergymen, etc., Brands is — in playing off of words — committed to staying true to its brand, a movement that has given way to owners Kevin and Nick Ramezani reaping sustained success.

DALLAS — Throughout her tenure in a men’s fashion industry that spans more than four decades, Sebrina Jones has come to embrace one notable trend within the walls of Brands Suit Warehouse.

That is, she has seized the concept that every now and then, some of her most dedicated customer will deem it essential to assist and accommodate other customers.
For Jones, such a pleasant gesture, by all accounts, is what makes her job even more gratifying.
“Yeah…we’re always having customers waiting on customers,” Jones told Making Headline News this week. “They feel so comfortable, they help us. That’s what you call good customer service.”
Not only that, it is due in large part because of Brands’ proverbial guide-you-along concept toward its customers that has contributed mightily it becoming one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most popular hubs for men’s fashion.
TRIPLE D SENSATION — Located at 4140 West Camp Wisdom Road, Suite C — or roughly a half mile south of the Duncanville city limits — Brands has become a fixture in the greater Oak Cliff district of Dallas.

From the latest and up-to-date versions of men’s suits, shoes, neckties, to arguably some of the hottest and most sought after attires for the annual prom seasons, weddings clergymen, etc., Brands is — in playing off of words — committed to staying true to its brand, a movement that has given way to owners Kevin and Nick Ramezani reaping sustained success.

Located at 4140 West Camp Wisdom Road, Suite C — or roughly a half mile south of the Duncanville city limits — Brands has become a fixture in the greater Oak Cliff district of Dallas.

Brands and Suit And Shoe Outlet offer a variety of brand name men’s fashion attire from Falcone, Stacy Adams, Maurizio, Brand Q, Karl Knox, Renoir, Globe, Gorgio Brutini, Calvin Klein, Steven Land, Verse 9, Encore, and Inserch, among others.

A native of Dallas, Jones, 60, has been employed by Brands since 2009 and, much to her delight, she has developed a close-knit bond with a number of its regular customers.

Prior to joining the Brands team, Jones had already established solid and immeasurable men’s fashion resume, considering she had compiled more than 30 years of professional experience.

“I have a lot of favorite customers,” Jones said. “I have customers who have been with me for over 30 years.”

LEADING BY EXAMPLE — Prior to joining the Brands team, fashion coordinator Sebrina Jones had already established solid and immeasurable men’s fashion resume, considering she had compiled more than 30 years of professional experience.

Prior to its Camp Wisdom location that went into operations in 2006, the Ramezanies’ company was named the Big And Tall Fashion For Less and was housed in nearby Mesquite, Texas.

Brands’ original store, meanwhile, was located in Cedar Hill.

The Ramezanies have since expanded their business, thus adding Suit And Shoe Outlet, which essentially is located across the street from their primary site in the historic Red Bird Village.

Both locations, in fact, offer a variety of brand name men’s fashion attire from Falcone, Stacy Adams, Maurizio, Brand Q, Karl Knox, Renoir, Globe, Gorgio Brutini, Calvin Klein, Steven Land, Verse 9, Encore, and Inserch, among others.

WE’VE GOT YOU COVERED — It is due in large part because of Brand’s customary guide-you-along concept toward its customers that has contributed mightily it becoming one’s Dallas/Fort Worth most popular hubs for men’s fashion.

Interestingly, Jones said that plans are effectively underway for management to erect an online site, where customers can shop and have items shipped to them anywhere around the country.

“Whatever you want, we’ve got it,” said Jones, placing even more emphasis on the company’s key ingredient that is efficient customer service. “We don’t turn you a loose until (you’ve found what you want).”

Every now and then, Brands’ customers might perhaps find themselves becoming the beneficiaries of jokes, Jones acknowledged with a grin.

Interestingly, Jones said that plans are effectively underway for management to erect an online site, where customers can shop and have items shipped to them anywhere around the country.

“We even joke with you,” Jones said a routine gesture that customarily makes her job more amusing.

Fellow Brands’ fashion coordinator Guen Abello Bethley, like Jones, has gone to great lengths to find her comfort zone with a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

STAR WATCH — Brands’ fashion coordinator Guen Abello Bethley has had the pleasure to accommodating the fashion needs of a host of globally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably Joe Jackson, the late father and manager of pop music icon Michael Jackson, who passed away in June 2018 at the age of 89.

“Working for this company gave me an opportunity to develop my skills in fashion coordinating and store management,” Bethley said.

Credit the fact that she’s also had the pleasure to accommodating the fashion needs of a host of globally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably Joe Jackson, the late father and manager of pop music icon Michael Jackson, who passed away in June 2018 at the age of 89.

“I’ve grown so much as an individual,” Bethley said, “and I am a better fashion consultant and a regional manager because of this company.”

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Shanna Boger setting herself apart as one of nation’s finest event planners


Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:4)


IN A LEAGUE OF HER OWN 

A CUT ABOVE THE REST — A Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman in her own right, Shanna Boger, 46, is owner and CEO of the PRP Luxury Group, a progressive and thriving event planning venture she established some five years ago.

DALLAS — For Shanna Boger, she was practically born into it.

“My parents were entrepreneurs,” Boger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said explaining the memorable developments surrounding her rise as an accomplished entrepreneur. “Both of them had side businesses, plus full-time jobs, so I always knew I would have a business…just didn’t know what type of business.”
It didn’t take her very long to figure that out.
That’s because Boger essentially wound up following in the massive footsteps of her beloved mother, whose entrepreneurship craft was that of a florist and wedding planner when her daughter was a child, growing up Bossier City, Louisiana.

BAYOU BEAUTY — A Fall 1994 graduate of Grambling State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting, Boger’s PRP Luxury Group has been operations for five years and counting. The key to her reaping sustained success through an endeavor whose best and brightest days are well ahead it: going above and beyond to ensure that she exemplifies top-notch customer service.

A Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman in her own right, Boger, 46, is owner and CEO of the PRP Luxury Group, a progressive and thriving event planning venture she established some five years ago.

In essence, PRP Luxury Group is widely regarded as a boutique wedding and event company, one that specializes in full-service wedding planning, luxurious floral and event design, not to mention custom stationery and curated gifts.

“My parents were entrepreneurs,” Boger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said explaining the memorable developments surrounding her rise as an accomplished entrepreneur. “Both of them had side businesses, plus full-time jobs, so I always knew I would have a business…just didn’t know what type of business.”

All things considered, Boger has her mother to thank, in large part because even as a youngster growing up in Louisiana, she was the beneficiary of some brilliant hands-on training, of sorts.

“She did all the weddings in our community and I hated it,” Boger jokingly said of her mother’s immeasurable impact as a local businesswoman. “So I decided to go to college and major in accounting and get a desk job.”

All things considered, Boger has her mother to thank, in large part because even as a youngster, growing up in Louisiana, she was the beneficiary of some hands-on training, of sorts.

As it turned out, that proverbial desk job was essentially short-lived, considering…well, Boger was practically birthed into the ever-so-competitive industry of entrepreneurship.

“I did that (desk job), but I reached a glass ceiling and the entrepreneur bug was a burning in my spirit and I could not shake it,” Boger recalled. “I have always been creative, so I took my creativity and decided to build my own business. And I came back to my roots: weddings and events.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today, unlike never before, Boger is functioning fervently in the divine purpose for which she was created, reinforcing among other things, that when parents train up children in the way they should go, when they mature in age, they will not depart from it.


“My mother, of course,” said Boger, when asked who were amongst those who inspired and pushed her to delve off into entrepreneurship. “(Also) Kae Whitaker of Kae Whiter Media Group, Preston Bailey, Kathy Romero, and Akeshi Akinseye of Kesh Events.”

Having had the luxury of hosting the bulk of her events in Texas, Boger boasts lofty aspirations of planning and designing events globally.

Given her immeasurable and remarkably compelling gifts as an event planner, such a notable milestone figures to come to fruition — much sooner than later.

A business that accommodates clients ranging mostly in ages of 25 to 44, Boger announced that plans are effectively underway to partner with the newly erected Lakeview Event & Conference Center in nearby Arlington, where she will engage in hosting an Open House event in October.


MOM KNOWS BEST

Today, unlike never before, Boger is functioning fervently in the divine purpose for which she was created, reinforcing among other things, that when parents train up children in the way they should go, when they mature in age, they will not depart from it.

“(I just want to) be an inspiration to people, to live life the fullest,” said Boger, explaining her mission that’s aligns with her customer service goals and objectives. “I want to be an inspiration to people, to show them that God will give you the desires of your heart, as long as you honor Him in everything you do.”

Not to mention obey His Voice, even if it comes through your mom.

Something to which this remarkably gifted Texas entrepreneur can greatly attest.

Texas author Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” rapidly emerges as a global bestseller


Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. (James 5:16 KJV)


A PRAYING VISIONARY 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A collaborative project that is comprised of 52 authors from around the country, Cheryl Polote-Williamson is responsible for having forwarded a “Soulful Prayers” published movement that, to her credit, has been as good advertised.

DALLAS — Given her immeasurable, longstanding resume, it would be rather befitting to refer to accomplished Flower Mound, Texas-based businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson as a serial author, of sorts.

That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.
Especially her latest awe-inspiring written work entitled, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” a spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily having a massive kingdom impact — this amid a little less than three weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.

HERE’S THE DEAL — “‘Soulful Prayers’ aids in my purpose to reach out to millions of people for the kingdom,” Polote-Williamson said. “This book was put in my heart by God, and it is the product of people, who were driven by God to write these prayers.”

“I have received so much positive feedback,” Polote-Williamson told Making Headline News this week. “For instance, some have said the book gave them a sense of freedom from the darkness they are in. They feel like they are no longer hostages to their past. Others have said they incorporated the book in to their daily walk with God to help them pray.”

Interestingly, that Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers” was spearheaded in January of this year and took somewhere in the neighborhood of just four months to go to press is indicative of the overall work ethic of this Christian-based author, who recently announced that plans are effectively underway to compose “Soulful Prayers 2.”

Polote-Williamson’S “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God,” a spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily have a massive kingdom impact — this amid a little less than three weeks removed from its much-anticipated release.

“I want people to understand that prayer is an intentional conversation with God, and it does not have to be perfect or planned just from the heart,” said Polote-Williamson, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her latest book. “I chose to produce the book, because I recognize the importance of having intentional communication with God. In addition, everyone struggles with how to come to God on particular topics, and I wanted this book to serve as a guide for leading those open prayers.”


Mission accomplished, thanks in large part to the diligent, steadfast act of obedience by this devout woman of faith, whose much-anticipated and latest project has not only created a continuous national buzz, but has already emerged as an Amazon Bestseller in the process.

That’s because Polote-Williamson is responsible for having produced 13 books dating back to 2013, each of which has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ in its own right.

But wait.

Although she’s orchestrated a dozen-plus books to date, Polote-Williamson is nowhere near done retiring the pad and pen.

Nope, not by a long shot.

“I plan to start on Soulful Prayers 2 and Soul Talk 3,” Polote-Williamson said. “In addition to books, I have now begun to work in film. For instance, I am the executive producer in the short film, ‘Illegal Rose,’ which has been submitted for review to several film festivals. Outside of ‘Illegal Rose,’ I have started working on my own personal film project, (Saving Clarissa) which is set to release in 2020.”

Much to her delight, speaking engagements and public appearances have become a customary trend for Polote-Williamson, the CEO of Cheryl Polote Williamson LLC, who’s widely regarded as an award-winning entrepreneur, bestselling author, speaker, philanthropist, as well as a notable transformational leader, one who has aided more than 145 individuals accomplished their long-awaited dreams of becoming bestselling authors.

In their own right.

North Carolina Christian author Sarah Johnson flexes her spiritual muscles through her new book


Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you; but rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12-13 NIV)


SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST 

THE PSALM 105:1 FACTOR — Sarah Johnson’s newly-produced book depicts the assortment of events involving a fanatical, excited lover and pleaser of God, all the while enduring what she describes as continual challenges, most notably molestation, abandonment, domestic violence, cancer, divorce, even the death of her father or, as this Christian-based author says, “blows from every side.”

DALLAS — Some five years or so ago, God thought it necessary to use someone to pose a rather memorable question to Sarah Johnson.

Once again.

To her credit, she fielded the question as if she expected it.
“I was given the vision to write my book in 2014,” Johnson, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments surrounding her newly-assembled written work. “I attended a conference and was asked if I had started writing the book.”
Interestingly, it was a thought-provoking inquiry that essentially rested on Johnson’s brain for an extended period of time.
“I went home that night, prayed to God, and asked for the blueprint,” Johnson said. “I wrote chapters one and two that night.”

And, from that point on, such a remarkable sequence had ultimately blossomed into a remarkable turn of events, a trend that eventually resulted in a full blown book entitled, “Survivor Once, Survivor For Life: Overcomer Of Cancer, Death Of A Marriage And Death Of A Parent.”

Widely regarded as an “award-winning overcomer of challenges and adversities,” Johnson has been appropriately dubbed a mother to “just five” talented, gifted and amazing children.

Her newly-produced book, in fact, depicts the assortment of events involving a fanatical, excited lover and pleaser of God, all the while enduring what she describes as continual challenges, most notably molestation, abandonment, domestic violence, cancer, divorce, even the death of her father or, as this Christian-based, Greensboro, North Carolina author says, “blows from every side.”

KINGDOM IMPACT — A devout woman of faith whose rash of hardships has fueled her desire to establish a close-knit relationship with Almighty God, Johnson emphasized that new book is designed in large part to encourage individuals, especially women from various walks of life.

But God…

“She counts it an honor to have been chosen by God as His model,” said a spokesperson in a detailed introduction of Johnson’s Survivor Once, Survivor For Life: Overcomer Of Cancer, Death Of A Marriage And Death Of A Parent” at http://www.survivoroncesurvivorforlife.com/. “Sarah is forever grateful for every opportunity to serve as a model for God’s goodness, grace, mercy, love, unmerited favor, strength, and healing.”

Having garnered a Master’s Degree in Biblical Theological Studies in December 2018 from Southwestern Assemblies of God University in nearby Waxahachie, Texas, Johnson is a native of Dallas/Fort Worth and is currently enrolled in SAG’s Master of Divinity program.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “God has allowed everything I have encountered — the good, bad and indifferent — to encourage other women that they too can overcome all of the challenges that are before them,” said Johnson, adding that at least two more books are on the horizon. “I am living proof that you do not have to be a statistic, regardless of your profile.”

A devout woman of faith whose rash of hardships has fueled her desire to establish a close-knit relationship with Almighty God, Johnson emphasized that new book is designed in large part to encourage individuals, especially women from various walks of life.


“(I want to encourage women) that no matter the lemons you hold in your hand, lemons make the perfect lemonade,” Johnson said. “Obstacles, setbacks, lack of support from family, failed marriages, cancer, being homeless are not excuses to count yourself out. Get back in the fight for life and win it.”


Widely regarded as an “award-winning overcomer of challenges and adversities,” Johnson has been appropriately dubbed a mother to “just five” talented, gifted and amazing children.

Because she’s thoroughly convinced that God has strategically sanctified her for such a pivotal time as now to help advance the kingdom through her assortment of tear-jerking testimonies, Johnson is pleading with the world to commit to getting this book now — even at the presale order stage.

Why?

“The book will bless the lives of many,” she said without hesitation.

All things considered, Johnson is forever grateful she obeyed the Voice of God at that conference some five years ago.

“Often times, the challenges we face have absolutely nothing to do with us, but has everything to do with those individuals we encounter throughout our journey of life,” Johnson continued. “I have survived almost every imaginable trial you could think, to help and encourage others that they can survive each obstacle and thrive.”

Over and over again.

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Crystal N. Tolbert ‘Walking In Greatness’ — literally and figuratively


She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks. (Proverbs 31:17 NIV)


GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS 

ON A KINGDOM MISSION — As Crystal N. Tolbert explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer create a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

DALLAS — As far as the above Biblical passage goes, say this about Crystal Nicole Tolbert:

She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her tasks.
In that distinctly unique order.
Consider, for instance, how Tolbert, a progressive, flourishing and devout woman of faith, had go about assuming her strategic, God-mandated assignment as the founder of Walking In Greatness Ministries, a Dallas/Fort Worth-based, faith-oriented ministry and social organization.
As Tolbert, 39, explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, her mission — and “responsibility” — for establishing her featured endeavor is to customarily offer a strategic, effective platform, one that would help change the mindset, impact, lead, and prepare what she describes as “the jewels” (or women) for their own legacy, so they can, in turn, walk in complete greatness in the kingdom.

“Our desire is to help woman find their value, purpose, joy, independence, and the true meaning of happiness to prepare them for their destiny to fully walk in greatness,” said Tolbert, providing a detailed synopsis of her ministry.

And then there is Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny,” a mentorship program that essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

“This (program) provides a Biblical, yet practical approach to living your life in purpose, on purpose,” Tolbert said.

An endeavor that accommodates individuals ranging mostly in ages 25 to 60, Tolbert credits what she deems a “kingdom creative for people who are ready to live a kingdom purpose life” as arguably the biggest reason she’s been blessed to oversee a Christian-based business for such a time as now.


“(I’m) continually gaining obtaining and acquiring the knowledge and skills required to have as a kingdom entrepreneur with ministry in the market place,” said Tolbert, explaining how her competitive drive in life has greatly enabled her to assemble a notable business. “I called it ‘Exit To The Platform.’”


As one of God’s “leading jewels and mentors” Tolbert has been afforded the luxury of promoting Walking in Greatness Ministries in a variety of establishments around the country, most notably Los Angeles, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Las Vegas, and Atlanta, among others.

“I really want to be able to impact and bring forth what God has place in them,” Tolbert, a Lufkin, Texas native said explaining the mission of her ministry. “It is so important to me that Jewels of Destiny are left with something of real value. I was called to be a dream changer because I have the gift to make dreams reality for the kingdom.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM

More than anything, though, Tolbert’s kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas. Pictured with Tolbert is her husband, Kenneth Tolbert.

A Lufkin High School and Angelina College alum, Tolbert is widely known as a devoted wife, mother, author, prophetic scribe, and speaker.

More than anything, though, her kingdom-based assignment is centered largely on her being an anointed woman of God, one who will ceremoniously take a much-anticipated massive step toward her destiny when she is officially installed as a Pastor at Restored IV Purpose Ministries Sunday in nearby Farmers Branch, Texas.

Restored IV Purpose Ministries is located at 13624 Gamma Road.

Her itinerary also includes:

An upcoming speaking engagement in St Thomas at the Emerald Beach Resort, a Prophetic Scribe Workshop on August 3 in Los Angeles, and an appearance during the Joyful Moments Prayer Brunch on August 24 at Red Oak Municipal Center.

Armed with more than 15 years of experience in her selected line of work, Tolbert doesn’t shy away from the notion that God’s Hands have been on her life for as long as she can recall.

All of which essentially sums up why she sets about her work vigorously and her arms are strong for her tasks.

DESTINY STEPS — Tolbert’s “Woman of Greatness Jewels of Destiny” is mentorship program that’s essentially falls under her ministry’s umbrella, whereby it customarily prepares and equips individuals to fully recognize their life’s purpose, particularly by gaining knowledge, support, and development needed to ignite their passions, gifts, and talents as an effective way to make a massive impact on the world.

In that distinctly unique order.

“I want (people) to be able to be so inspired from what I share that they go back to their own various lives and put forth the action to make their dreams their own reality,” Tolbert said before offering what she labels kingdom tools to live by.

“Seek, write, and believe,” she continued. “You must seek the Lord first. Write the vision. Believe the Vision.”

To her credit, she’s doing that, with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Delissia D. Witt making much noise as one of area’s finest tax preparers

ARLINGTON’S FINEST 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A native of Arlington, Texas, Delissia D. Witt is a longtime Tax Preparer Trainer and Certified Notary for Tax Nation LLC.

ARLINGTON, Texas — For Delissia D. Witt, time is extremely precious to her.

That is why she’s become greatly empowered to make the most of it.

Every. Single. Day.

“I now pursue my dream of owning my own time,” Witt told Making Headline News this week. “And I’m a full time businesswoman with experience, knowledge…a down-to-earth businesswoman with a big personality.”

For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Witt’s larger-than-life personality, coupled with her keen resourcefulness that have catapulted her to her divine purpose as a progressive, thriving businesswoman.

A native of Arlington, Texas, Witt is a longtime Tax Preparer Trainer and Certified Notary for Tax Nation LLC.

Located at 835 NE Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington, Tax Nation boasts a staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, being knowledgeable of tax laws, and, most importantly, serving its respective community.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

For starters, Witt’s mother for years owned a licensed in-home daycare venture, which afforded her the golden opportunity to gain some hands on experience as a young businesswoman.

“I handled her clients, paid employees, collected money from parents, and had a curriculum for the children,” Witt recalled.

As it turned out, such a solid work ethic continued well into her high school years.

LOOK AT HER NOW — Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“While in high school, I was one of the leaders who started a step team and made it apart of the curriculum,” Witt explained. “We were the first black step team at Martin High School. After high school, I worked full time at an insurance company and went to Tarrant County Community College, (where) I was doing auditions for plays.”

A notable resume that also includes being a contestant in the Miss Black Texas pageant — she actually won the talent portion, largely because of her immeasurable acting skills — Witt eventually would become a founding member of the Beta Phi Chi Sorority/Fraternity that was spearheaded by Dennis Dotson.

Interestingly, she had become a fixture in the “What Should A Sista Do?” stage play.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

All things considered, Witt’s wealth of experience as a successful businesswoman has benefited her mightily throughout the years.

And, while taking questions from the media this week, Witt didn’t hesitate to emphasize that as a longtime professional tax preparer who boasts immeasurable success, she’s destined to make her presence felt in her native establishment of Arlington.

Never mind that a rash of stumbling blocks had essentially given way to her enduring an unlikely hiatus from her business.

“After a divorce, I let my business go after five years and I got back into the corporate world and went to school for taxes,” Witt said.


MRS. WITT IS LIT 

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“I inspire others by sharing my abusive experience with them and how God brought me out,” Witt said. “Being a business partner of Tax Nation has taught me even more in business. I want to educate all my clients to ensure them of their tax situation.”

Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

SHE ISN’T DONE YET — Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

Having been partnered with Tax Nation for the past five years, Witt has ventured off and started Divine Business Services, which customarily allows her to serve clients by aiding them to keep their business-related goals and ambitions intact.

“Out of my trials and tribulations I’ve been through, I’ve learned from them and turned them into a business and a way to help this upcoming generation,” Witt said.

She has no time to waste.

Letitia Scott Jackson’s DFW-based Keeping Families Connected nonprofit organization becoming a national fixture


“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV) 


DALLAS — Letitia Scott Jackson took to the airwaves over the weekend for all the right reasons.

Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound, spirited words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

ALL IN THE FAMILY 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — A Dallas/Fort Worth-based non-profit organization that Leititia Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.
Said Scott Jackson in a rather forthright suggestion. “If you woke up this morning and didn’t thank God for waking you up, you are out of order.”
To grasp a thorough concept of why the opportunistic Scott Jackson deems it essential to embrace virtually every opportunity that’s afforded to her, look no further than how God has gone about moving on her behalf during a time when it seemed countless of others had written her off.

Wrongfully convicted only to wound up emerging victorious during her case that unfolded in the Texas Fifth Circuit Courts, Scott Jackson had become greatly inspired to establish Keeping Families Connected.

A DFW-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“We believe that family matters most,” said a spokesperson for this thriving, flourishing nonprofit organization in a detailed overview at https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/.

A native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Scott Jackson is thoroughly convinced that her organization is steadily becoming a fixture throughout the region but, most importantly, she’s convinced it aligns solely with the purpose for which she was created.

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat over the weekend, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

In order to better aid and promote her organization — particularly on national platforms — Scott Jackson has announced that she and her staff  will be launching a Keeping Families mobile app, which is scheduled to go into effect as early as June 1, 2019 during its Third Annual Creations of Fashion For A Cause Runway Show.

This yearly event, Scott Jackson said, is designed for children from various walks of life, particularly teens and young adults from Keeping Families Connected, during which they will participate in modeling, as well as meet and interact with professional models.

In order for better aid and promote her organization — particularly on national platforms — Scott Jackson has announced that she and her staff  will be launching a Keeping Families mobile app, which is scheduled to go into effect as early as June 1, 2019 during its Third Annual Creations of Fashion For A Cause Runway Show.

For Scott Jackson, the startup of her organization comes amid arguably the darkest chapter of her life.

“I couldn’t see my kids, because they were left with caregivers, who couldn’t afford to bring them to see them,” said Scott Jackson, recalling the tumultuous developments that fueled her desire to establish her nonprofit. “My daughters were in Louisiana and I was in Texas.”

Still, after the dust had ultimately settled and Scott Jackson had emerged victorious by winning her case, it wasn’t long thereafter that God had emphatically showed her why He had entrusted her to endure, yet conquer so much heartache and pain, both of which she emphatically outlasted.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose as an accomplished businesswoman, who’s also widely known as a published author, public speaker, musician, and humanitarian.

To her credit, she birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, Scott Jackson emphasized.

“Ever since (she was wrongfully convicted), she wants to spread the hope of redemption and connection one interaction, a letter to an inmate, and one prison visit at a time,” said a spokesperson for Scoot Jackson’s organization. “She also has a passion for speaking to youth and young adults about making the best choices now based on her own past experiences. She has been blessed to build several businesses and mentor students and members of her church to define their own success.”

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, she emphasized.

“For four years, we have been providing free breakfast, lunch, and transportation to prison facilities throughout the state of Texas for (people), especially kids that have incarcerated parents and individuals that have incarcerated loved ones,” Scott Jackson said.

Talk about being in total alignment with the purpose for which she was created.


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH — To her credit, Scott Jackson birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

“My life’s trials and tribulations set me up for this journey,” Scott said. “I lost my mom, my dad, and my only son to death, and I really feel that God was removing all of my leaning posts so that I could find my connection and my calling in life and, more so, to help me maximize my potential.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.

And, what’s remarkably astounding is that she’s nowhere out of order.

Not by a long shot.

Dallas/Fort Worth Pastor Edward Taylor continuing Deliverance Chapel COGIC’s longstanding mission as its beloved leader


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


CARRYING THE MANTLE 

DIFFERENT LEADER, SAME MISSION — A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Edward Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.

DALLAS — For the record, it is a testimony that Edward Taylor deems it a foregone conclusion to share with the masses.

Every single chance he gets.

Just recently, Taylor found himself disclosing it once again, reliving the awe-inspiring notion that had it not been for the Lord on his side then, chances are, he wouldn’t merely know where he’d be.

Then again, he does have an idea, to put it rather bluntly.
“Had God not changed my life when He did, I would probably be dead or in jail,” Edwards, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable, life-altering developments that led to his rise as an accomplished man of the cloth. “Also, I know if He changed my life, he can do it for someone else. So I take reaching the lost — evangelism — really serious.”
To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided for him a way of escape time and again.
Oh…and while you’re at it, look no further than how he’s diligently going about serving the people of God.
A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.
Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under late Superintendent Kelley Jr., a stint that would ultimately give way to his official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming the Senior Pastoral duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

“Although (I was) raised in a single parent home, my mother always taught me to work hard and never let anyone tell me what I can’t do or attain,” said Taylor, recalling the No. 1 key value he was taught as a child.

SERVING WITH EXCELLENCE — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided him a way of escape time and again, but look no further than how he has gone about serving the people of God.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Taylor and his family relocated from the Magnolia to the Lone Star State in 2004, approximately nine years after he had effectively accepted his calling to preach the gospel.

Interestingly, even before God had strategically set Taylor aside for His use, this young preacher endured a tumultuous season in the wilderness, one that was mired by his constant drug addiction.

All things considered, coupled with divine purpose for which he was created, even a somewhat lengthy connection to drugs wasn’t enough to steer Taylor to a premature death, mind you.


LEAST WE FORGET 

REMEMBERING HIS PREDICESSORS  — Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming Senior Pastor duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

If nothing else, it seemed that such a downtrodden and gloomy season of his life only impressed upon the heart of his Creator to come after him the more. So much so that this young, gifted preacher from the “SIP” (a historic abbreviation for Mississippi) had no choice but to do away with his potentially dead-end addiction, thus pick up his cross and obey God’s specific commands that included, among other things, leading His people for such a time as now.

Because at the end of the real day, Taylor was taught, more than anything, that only what you do for Christ will last.

AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.

Here he is today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had Taylor right where he wanted him.

But God…

SERVANT’S HEART — For what it’s worth, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

“(My ) family is very supportive, especially my mother and adult children,” said Taylor, explaining his transition to Senior Pastor nearly two years ago.

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.


 

“The Lord has blessed us to work together to accomplish great things in the ministry,” Taylor said of his companion’s unparalleled support. “Our greatest desire is to take the church to another level and build the people and let God grow the church. Deliverance Chapel is a united body, and is definitely a good church to go to heaven from.”

Credit Taylor’s predecessor as arguably the biggest reason why.

Taylor joined Deliverance Chapel in 2004 after serving a brief tenure under Pastor Joe Starks of Shady Gove Church of God In Christ in nearby Irving, Texas.

RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS HIM — Here is Taylor today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from the days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed that he had Taylor right where he wanted him. But God…

Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under Superintendent Kelley Jr.

Such a stint would ultimately give way to Taylor’s official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

Prior to assuming his Pastoral assignment in Texas, Taylor served at Amazing Institutional Church of God in Christ in Jackson, Mississippi, under the leadership of Superintendent Marcus Butler.

Currently, Taylor serves as Evangelist President to Bishop Nathaniel De’Anthony Wells, the Prelate of Texas Northeast Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.

Asked when he sensed that God was strategically him for ministry, Taylor said without hesitation: “When I accepted my calling at age 30.”

A PROVEN LEADER — A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

For what it’s worth, though, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving conscientiously ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving with immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

Most of all, he’s serving fervently from God’s perspective.

Which, because of the divine calling on his life, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had him right where he wanted him.

But God…

Young Mid-South author LaSha Wright shares wealth of wisdom, courtesy of her inspiring books


We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1  KJV)


WOMAN OF WISDOM

WRITINGS ON FLEEK — To her credit, LaSha Wright, an Ashtown, Arkansas-based author, is the mastermind behind “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement” and “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement, Volume II,” a pair of awe-inspiring books whose release dates are separated by approximately six months.

DALLAS — Lordy, Lordy, looks who’s…

Twenty-four?

Yep. You guessed it.

LaSha Wright is just a tender 24 years of age, yet her business-related resume is such that she’s far more mature and productive for a young woman, who won’t reach her 30’s until November 2024.

“Life is too short to continue doing things that don’t grow you, inspire, motivated, and encourage you,” Wright told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “Life is truly about the lesson learned and helping others along the way.”


BUY LASHA WRIGHT’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Infinite-Wisdom-Poetry-Words-Encouragement-ebook/dp/B0753HTGQH

For Wright, she has certainly gone to great lengths to not only press and navigate toward her purpose but, more than anything, she has deemed it essential to reach back and aid others to follow suit.

A native of Dallas, Wright is an accomplished writer, who is responsible for having author two books to date.

To her credit, this Ashtown, Arkansas-based author is the mastermind behind “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement” and “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement, Volume II,” a pair of awe-inspiring books, whose release dates are separated by approximately six months.

Wright’s first installment of Infinite Wisdom was officially released on August 25, 2017, a project that took somewhere in the neighborhood of four months to complete.

A book that is comprised of 218 page in length, “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement,” by all accounts, is a collection Wright’s spiritually-empowering poems and letters, many of which are geared toward bringing about clarity and wholeness to life.

“My hope is to help others just like me have more ambition,” Wright said of her books in a detailed breakdown at Amazon.com. “Through inspirational and motivational poems and letter, I hope to help you as you move toward your goals in life.”

Wright’s sophomore edition of “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement” was officially released on February 12, 2018 and, like her first book, has since garnered a considerable amount of favorable feedback.

Wright’s sophomore edition of “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement” was officially released on February 12, 2018 and, like her first book, has since garnered a considerable amount of favorable feedback.

“God put it on my heart in the year of 2016,” said Wright, recalling when she captured the vision to exercise her faith through the world of authorship. “I was so uneasy about the way the world was becoming, and I said to myself, ‘Someone’s got to make a difference.’”

Once she stepped out on faith, particularly through her breathtaking poems and letters, God had ultimately allowed her gifts to make even more room for her.

Today, unlike never before, this young and gifted author is destined to advance the kingdom, thus inspire countless of people around the globe to connect with their God-orchestrated gifts, courtesy of her immeasurable writings.

A book that is comprised of 218 page in length, “Infinite Wisdom: Poetry and Words of Encouragement,” by all accounts, is a collection Wright’s spiritually-empowering poems and letters, many of which are geared toward bringing about clarity and wholeness to life.

“I plan to help millions of people become their greatest selves,” Wright, whose poetic talents spans a little more than a decade. “It’s too often people take the easy path in life because, everyone is afraid of the challenge that lies ahead in things unknown to them.”


Even at the tender age of 24, Wright has become thoroughly inspired to help people view and embrace life for the precious, yet fragile gift from God it is.

A certified welder, Wright graduated from college in May 2014 and, according to this resourceful businesswoman, she eventually plans to become active in metal art and hopes to establish her own art show soon that will display her slew of art works.

“The hardest path in life is mostly like worth it, because you appreciate the effort, passion, and dedication you’ve put into your crafts and talents,” Wright explained. “(Despite) all the money you’ve invested in your careers, dreams, passion, it’s beauty in adversity, because without it, there is no room to grow and there are no second chances. I love knowing that no matter what, I’ll always be learning.”

And not just learning and becoming more and more knowledgeable while functioning in her element, but devising ways to greatly aid others to follow suit.

Never mind that she’s only 24 years old.

DESTINY STEPS — A certified welder, Wright graduated from college in May 2014 and, according to this resourceful businesswoman, she eventually plans to become active in metal art and hopes to establish her own art show soon that will display her slew of art works.

“My words speak volumes,” Wright said. “I am powerful in my words, but also in my writings. I touch everyone, because I speak truth. Not only that, I believe in God enough to know I can make a difference.

“I want to help others to be a greater version of themselves, so every morning they wake up, they will know they are amazing without a doubt about it.”

Well said by this young and brilliantly gifted author, one who’s having an immediate impact throughout the kingdom.

And the world.

Texas gospel singer Bryan Ezell advancing the kingdom, following in the massive footsteps of his parents


O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 KJV)


DALLAS — Diana Sheffield Richards is a dear friend to Bryan Ezell.

On Tuesday morning, she deemed it essential to enlighten her social media followers of just how much she admires Ezell, a rising fixture in this ever-so-competitive gospel music industry.

“This is so cool! I can’t wait to see my friend, Bryan Ezell, sing at the Choice Competition. And it’s for a great cause!” Richards wrote in a Facebook post, alluding to Ezell’s forthcoming appearance at the Choice Singing Competition Friday night.

PREPARE YE THE WAY 

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Bryan Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

For Ezell, Richards’ public celebratory shout out is just a microcosm of the kind of unyielding support this gifted and talent Sherman, Texas-based singer has garnered in recent years.

A native of a small, unincorporated community known as Tom, Oklahoma, Ezell, 41, has made his presence felt as an accomplished gospel recording artist, whose immeasurable talents are steadily advancing the kingdom mightily for such a pivotal time as now.

“I have been singing all of my life, and the older I got, I started thinking more about how instead of singing to other people’s music, why not make my own songs and sing them how I want to,” Ezell told Making Headline News this week. “I had an ear for music and could pay attention to the minute details of sound quality. That challenged me to begin creating favorable sounds as it was revealed to me.”

RUNNING WITH THE VISION — A gospel music tenure that spans more than 15 years, Ezell has gone to great lengths to become more of a gospel artist who customarily wears many hats, considering he possesses the immeasurable smarts as an audio engineer and music producer.

Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

“My mom used to sing all the time around the house, and they both made my sisters and I sing too,” Bryan Ezell recalled. “My friend, Whalion Dewberry, and his brother, the late Tony Dewberry, inspired me to play the guitar, as well as my grandpa, Lewis Joshua. I thought they were the coolest guys around as I watched them play for the church and the gospel group my dad was in.”

A gospel music tenure that spans more than 15 years, Bryan Ezell has gone to great lengths to become more of a gospel artist, who customarily wears many hats, considering he possesses the immeasurable smarts as an audio engineer and music producer.

Talk about savoring the fruits of his labor, this for an overwhelmingly gifted PK whom, because of the divine calling on his life, is witnessing his gifts steadily make room for him.


“I get to do exactly what I love to do as an occupation while creating ways to connect with people in various ways,” said Bryan Ezell, whose musical talents accommodate mostly pre-teen to adults. “(My personal mission is) to connect with mankind on a natural level, to encourage and empower their spirit, and to show that Jesus can lead the way to a better life if we turn it around and live right.”


A product of the Ezell Legacy Group, LLC, Bryan Ezell also offers music services to individuals of all ages at his family’s Trinity One Records LLC studio.

Having begun singing a the tender age of two, amongst the notable lessons he was taught is that never should he accept anyone’s “No” when God has emphatically said “Yes.”

“Because I have been told to stick to my day job and been told “no,” Bryan Ezell explained. “And I vowed to rise above those statements, even if I had to do it myself, and that’s what I did.”

After all, if he’s heard it once, he’s likely heard it countless of times.

That is, whatever you do for Christ will last.


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM 

TRAINING HIM UP — Widely known as a PK — or a Preacher’s Kid, considering he’s the son of Pastor and Mrs. James Ezell (Annie) of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman, Texas — Bryan Ezell credits his parents as his “first inspirations,” in large part because aside from literally being raised in the church, he grew up watching his father showcase his musical talents in a group called “The Inspirational Gospel Singers.”

And, if God said it, that settles it.

Let the church say Amen.

“I didn’t give up after hearing (‘no’),” Bryan Ezell said. “I press the gas and grew from it, and that’s what I tell anybody. Abide in your calling and don’t give up if you believe you can do it, because nobody can stop your progress, but you.”
