Dallas/Fort Worth author Mel Brown McGinnis’ newly-released book drawing a variety of rave reviews


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MEL BROWN MCGINNIS


Come unto Me, all who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)


DALLAS — For Mel Brown McGinnis, age isn’t merely just a number, particularly as it pertains to her immeasurable gifts as a writer.

Consider, for instance, how at just the tender age of 14, McGinnis was appropriately introduced to her awe-inspiring gift as a writer, an introduction that, much to her delight, was orchestrated by God Almighty.

“I’ve known since I was 14 years old that writing is my calling and my God-given gift,” McGinnis told Making Headline News this week. “I’ve been writing poetry since that time, but was never in a position to publish my work.”

PURCHASE MEL BROWN MCGINNIS’ BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Reflections-Life-Collection-Poetry-Images/dp/069214532X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1538938417&sr=8-1&keywords=mel+mcginnis&dpID=41LgXU7UWDL&preST=_SY291_BO1,204,203,200_QL40_&dpSrc=srch

CONSTANT PAGE TUNER — Dallas/Fort Worth-area author Mel Brown McGinnis is a little less than two months removed from having witnessed the much-anticipated release of her book entitled, “Reflections Of Life: A Collection Of Poetry, Prose, And Images.” (Photos By Lynsey Wade)

Fortunately for McGinnis, that all changed some four years ago.

That’s because in 2014, this Louisiana native began working diligently on her novel.

Never mind that she consequently endured the dreaded writer’s block or, as she recalls, she “couldn’t quite move the story and the characters forward.”

Fast forward to some three years later, September 2017 to be exact.

“I was having dinner with an author friend of mine and we were discussing the timeline for finishing my book,” McGinnis explained. “I mentioned to her that I didn’t know if I was quite ready to move forward with the novel, but that I had all of these poems that I had written a few years back that really helped me to get through some dark days.”

LOUISIANA PURCHASE — A spiritually-enhancing and kingdom-advancing written work that is comprised of 134 pages, McGinnis’ “Reflections Of Life: A Collection Of Poetry, Prose, And Images” is the debut literary work of this remarkably brilliant author and poet.

It was, by all accounts, because of those darks — those spiritually challenging and wilderness experiences — that have greatly helped propel McGinnis to authorship greatness.

That’s because McGinnis is a little less than two months removed from having witnessed the much-anticipated release of her book entitled, “Reflections Of Life: A Collection Of Poetry, Prose, And Images.”

A spiritually-enhancing and kingdom-advancing written work that is comprised of 134 pages, McGinnis’ “Reflections Of Life: A Collection Of Poetry, Prose, And Images” is the debut literary work of this remarkably brilliant author and poet from the small town of Monroe, Louisiana.

“This compilation takes you on a journey of love, loss and triumph,” said a spokesperson for McGinnis’ new book in a thorough breakdown at Amazon.com. Reflections is a collection of inspirational poetry, prose, and pictures from all over the world taken by the author during her travels, including selections from the author’s photo collection, ‘Natural Elements.’ The poetry, prose, and images work together to tell stories of empowering women, finding love after heartbreak, advocating against domestic violence, navigating the political landscape, creating pathways to success from humble beginnings, reveling in a love of sports, and paying tribute to a musical legend.”

What’s even more astounding for McGinnis is that since the recent release of her book, she’s managed to garner an array of rave reviews, many of which have blanketed her social media timelines.

A licensed attorney and certified sports agent, McGinnis holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature with a minor in Mass Communications and Journalism from Louisiana State University.

STANDING OVATION — What’s even more astounding for McGinnis is that since the recent release of her book, she’s managed to garner an array of rave reviews, many of which have blanketed her social media timelines.

“The message that God is using me to deliver is that no matter how dark the days may be, never give up on yourself and never give up on your dreams,” McGinnis said. “I use this book to discuss themes of women’s empowerment and advocating against domestic violence.”

McGinnis said a percentage of sales from her book are donated to Women Called Moses, a local nonprofit organization that provides resources and support for victims of domestic violence.

Credit McGinnis’ keen ability to press and navigate through arguably the toughest of times, coupled with her devout faith in God, as amongst the grandest reasons her Creator essentially handpicked her for such a time as now to advance His kingdom, most notably through her endeavor as an author.

“After a difficult divorce, I was in a very dark place mentally,” McGinnis explained. “I didn’t know how to move forward in my life and I struggled just to get through each day. I would pray to God and say, ‘Ok God, so let’s make a deal. If You will just give me the strength to get through the day and get back to my car, then I can just cry when I get in the car on my way home. But please don’t let me have a breakdown at work.’

SEE THE TRAILER FOR MORE OF MEL’S BOOK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Dx-m_kim_Q

“I cried every day literally for six months straight, and I just didn’t think I was going to get through it,” McGinnis continued. “But I did. One day, I went home and I said, today will be the last day I cry about this. And it was. Prayer was my source of strength. I just want people to know that no matter how hard things get, have faith in God and His plan for your life, and you can get through anything.”

Fortunately for McGinnis, she has been afforded the golden opportunity to make public appearances to promote her newly-assembled book which, in essence, is a unique ministry, of sorts, in its own right.

VIRTUOUS WOMAN — McGinnis is having an immediate and massive impact as an author, this having recently made her authorship debut.

Following what was a busy past few weeks, during which her book has become a constant fixture in the community and on the literary circuit, McGinnis will continue her book tour with a return to her native establishment of Monroe to host what is known as “Conversations With Mel.” This event will involve a Q & A segment and book signing and will take place at the Ouachita Parish Library on October 12.

McGinnis is scheduled to host a similar event on October 13 at the Louisiana Cotton Museum in nearby Lake Providence, where she was raised during the early years of her life.

Also, she will stop in Fort Worth, where she will attend the Women In Local Government Summit that is known as Women in Leadership: A Seat at the Table on October 25, during which she will be a guest speaker and a panelist, but isn’t expected to promote her book.

BUT GOD — Credit McGinnis’ keen ability to press and navigate through arguably the toughest of times, coupled with her devout faith in God, as amongst the reasons her Creator essentially handpicked her for such a time as now to advance His kingdom.

However, she will be promoting “Poetry & Prose” on October 28, which will be highlighted by live readings and a book signing at Victory Drinklab in New Orleans.

In wrapping up the tour, McGinnis will be on hand for “Conversations From The White Sofa” that is powered by the Book Club Brunch, an event that will take place in February 3, 2019 in Plano, Texas.

Talk about having an immediate and massive impact as an author, this having recently made her authorship debut.

“I am first a child of God, and I truly believe I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me,” McGinnis said. “I would hope to inspire others to believe the same.”

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Fortunately for McGinnis, a proud alumnus of Louisiana State University, she has been afforded the golden opportunity to make public appearances to promote her newly-assembled book which, in essence, is a unique ministry, of sorts, in its own right.

That she’s certainly doing with God, her Helper, leading the way.

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

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES TOYA KNOWLES


DALLAS — Toya Knowles is a proud native of Illinois.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

For Grace, a native of Sunshine, Louisiana — a rural establishment that is approximately 15 miles South of Baton Rouge and rest along the mighty Mississippi River — she has every reason in the world to be giddy and enthusiastic after having taking yet another monumental step in her immeasurable tenure as an accomplished author.

“I believe God has gifted me with an active imagination for a reason,” Grace, a Dallas/Forth-based writer and longtime mental health professional, told Making Headline News this week.

To her credit, Grace’s imaginative skills and mechanics were certainly put on display in her latest book entitled, “King, Duke, And Prince.”

Officially released on July 31, 2018, Grace — a detailed breakdown of her book at  https://www.sherylgrace.com, writes about how some 10 years ago, the character named James Miller walked out of prison, vowing to leave the past behind. That past, she said, included his sons and their mothers and, though he told himself that he would return, he never did.

Now, he has a new name, a new family, a new career, not to mention a best-selling memoir.

As Grace explained, she adopted the vision to compose “King, Duke, And Prince while engaging in her customary pampering.

“I received the vision for this book while I was receiving a facial believe it or not,” Grace said. “It was really weird. The title and concept just came to me in a daydream as I lied there on the spa table.”

The rest, as they say, was history, because one thought had ultimately led to another, which eventually gave way to a full blown book being birthed.

“After that, I felt that God gave me the vision and I was compelled to write it,” Grace said. “I began writing it the latter part of last year and finished it in May.”

ON DECK — Grace’s announced that a third book is presently in the works. A book that is entitled, “Miss Amanda and the One Room School,” this project is deemed a “historical picture book,” one that is based on the life of Grace’s grandmother, during which she began her teaching career in a one-room school in rural Louisiana in the 1930s.

Prior to writing “King, Duke, And Prince,” Grace authored another the informative, awe-inspiring book entitled, “He Calls Her Blue.”

A book this Southern University graduate had written two years ago, Grace acknowledged her initial written document had essentially become a vision nearly a decade prior to her composing it.

Talk about sticking to a strategic, longstanding plan that had eventually come full circle.

“The divine message that I send to my audience is that my characters are people with issues unlike anyone else but there are reasons they act the way that they do,” Grace explained. “I want my audience to understand the reasons behind a character’s behavior.”

Much to her delight, the feedback since the release of her books has been remarkable to say the least.

“My first book has received outstanding feedback,” Grace said. “Many people have expressed their eagerness for the sequel. My latest book, ‘King, Duke, And Prince’ has just been released and I am anxious to hear the reviews.”

More than anything, Grace emphasized that her books are designed in large part to empower her reading audience on issues that have greatly helped share and affect our world.

“As a mental health professional, it is important for me to educate our community on mental health,” she said. “I use my writing as a tool to address these issues. I fuse my active imagination with real life and work experiences.”

Such a notable trend has proven beneficial to a number of people, Grace acknowledged.

“Many people told me that they related so much to the characters in the first book that it triggered some deep seeded emotions,” Grace said. “I believed God has purposed me to tell the type of stories that will enlighten as well as entertain.”

Interestingly, Grace’s announced that a third book is presently in the works.

A book that is entitled, “Miss Amanda And The One Room School,” this project is deemed a “historical picture book,” one that is based on the life of Grace’s grandmother, during which she began her teaching career in a one-room school in rural Louisiana in the 1930s.

“She taught several grades simultaneously in that school for 19 years,” Grace explained. “That school is now a museum.”

While Grace’s itinerary currently doesn’t include any speaking engagements, the possibility exist that could very well change much sooner than later.

PUTTING IT IN PERSPECTIVE — “As a mental health professional, it is important for me to educate our community on mental health,” Grace said. “I use my writing as a tool to address these issues. I fuse my active imagination with real life and work experiences.”

“I do speak on mental health issues at churches and conferences,” said Grace, whose latest event last month was highlighted by her being a moderator for a mental health panel discussion during a women’s conference.

In addition, Grace’s professional resume includes assuming the role as co-host of the award-winning weekly internet radio show, “The Authors Lounge.”

Also, she currently serves as president and co-founder of The Metro Authors Group, an organization that The Metro Authors Group, which are sponsors for The Annual Books, Burgers, and More Literary Expo.

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Charlie French perseveres past ‘underdog’ role, establishes a flourishing women’s movement

DALLASCharlie French is only keeping it real.

“My life isn’t perfect, but God thought I was worth it,” French often says without hesitation. “So my mission is to ensure women that it starts within. If I can help one woman recognize her worth, my mission will be complete.”

RAWW AND UNCUTA Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman, Charlie French, 38, is the owner and chief executive officer of RAWW, an up-and-coming movement that stands for Recognize A Woman’s Worth.

For French, her awe-inspiring mission is one that, much to her delight, is greatly benefiting her and others in ways unimaginable.

A Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman, French, 38, is the owner and chief executive officer of RAWW, an up-and-coming movement that stands for Recognize A Woman’s Worth.

Through her movement, which French established a “few years ago,” this Shreveport, Louisiana native is widely known for inspiring woman discover and reconnect with their worth by way of her assortment of talents, most notably — but not limited to — as an accomplished professional cosmetologist, fashion designer, inspirational speaker, and mentor.

“My business, in a nutshell, is designed strictly for women,” French told Making Headline News this week. “This organization is to help women focus on their worth, without worrying about society and the stereotypes that have caused the gap amongst women. My business is to empower, evolve elevate but, most importantly, to help women recognize their worth.”

For French, that God is strategically using her for such a pivotal time as now didn’t merely come easy for the former Southern University student, who eventually obtained her cosmetology license from Blue Cliff College in nearby Alexandria, Louisiana.

DEFYING THE ODDS — To her credit, French has gone to great lengths to do more with which God has birthed her.

Amongst the reasons is that in growing up as the oldest of her siblings, French was routinely thrust in a leadership role, of sorts, a trend whereby she sensed she was pressured and, perhaps forced to thrive and excel.

And sometimes, even exceed expectations.

As usual, though, it seemed she customarily welcomed the assortment of challenges that came her way.

“My drive propelled me to always give it my all,” French said. “Failure wasn’t and option. But growing up without the guidance and support I needed as a child, my drive became my survival. That’s why I’m so adamant about my business. Not having support is something us as women lack.”

That, after all, essentially sums up why French had become greatly inclined to start a movement that would, by all accounts, inspire other women to become inclined to keep it moving in the wake arguably the toughest of obstacles.

“It’s always been my passion to help others, especially women,” French said. “That’s why I became a hairstylist. But God gave me the vision a few years ago (to do more with my gifts and talents).”

GOD’S PLAN — For French, that God is strategically using her for such a pivotal time as now didn’t merely come easy for the former Southern University student who eventually obtained her cosmetology license from Blue Cliff College in nearby Alexandria, Louisiana.

To her credit, French has gone to great lengths to do more with which God has birthed her.

Today, unlike never before, she’s thoroughly persuaded that she’s steadily witnessing her purpose unfold right before her very eyes.

Today, unlike never before, she’s thoroughly persuaded it’s time to reach back and help others possess and savor the purpose for which God created them.

“People are going through life not knowing what their purpose is, because they either are afraid to confide (in the people), or because they’ve been hurt or betrayed so much,” French said. “They either hold it in or they don’t have the support. Seventy percent are single mothers, and being a single mother, I feel it’s imperative that we have a solid support system.”

THIS IS WHY — “My drive propelled me to always give it my all,” French said. “Failure wasn’t and option. But growing up without the guidance and support I needed as a child, my drive became my survival. That’s why I’m so adamant about my business. Not having support is something us as women lack.”

All things considered, this is why RAWW is so prevalent for such a time as now, French emphasized.

“Besides my children being told, ‘No,’ having doors shut in your face, and being betrayed by people I trusted inspired me to never give up on myself,” French said. “I know how it feels not to feel worthy, to be looked down upon because you don’t fit in. I’ve always been the underdog. And I just want to help women get to their purpose point.”

If nothing else, she’s only keeping it real in process.

RAWW and uncut, too.

Dallas’ Shuanette Bradley on her rise in real estate: ‘After constantly being told that I wasn’t good enough, the desire in me grew’

DALLASShuanette Bradley isn’t a real estate agent just to say she’s one.

Given her immeasurable track record in this ever-so-competitive industry, she’s one whose reputation is such that she’s accustomed to helping consumers reap favorable results, particularly as it relates to purchasing a home.

HAVING AN IMMEDIATE IMPACT — Having been a fixture in the real estate market for a little more than three years, Shuanette Bradley keen professionalism undoubtedly has given way to her blossoming into one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s best kept secrets in this ever-so-popular industry.

All things considered, it all starts with enlightening potential home-buyers on the key essentials steps necessary to making their home-buying dreams come true.

“As a real estate agent, I try to educate my clients on the process from the beginning,” Bradley told Making Headline News this week. “I have clients who reach out to me with credit scores that are below approval rate. We sit down and put a plan together to repair their credit, while educating them on the importance of it and how to maintain good credit. I always stress that I don’t do credit repair, but teach credit education.”

Most importantly, establishing a solid rapport with prospective home buyers is extremely imperative for Bradley, 35, one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most efficient and resourceful real estate agents.

Having been a fixture in the real estate arena for a little more than three years, Bradley’s keen professionalism undoubtedly has given way to her blossoming into one of DFW’s best kept secrets in this ever-so-popular industry.

“Being able to meet many different people, educate them on the process and make dreams come true,” said Bradley, when asked what she loves the most about her venture. “(I love) witnessing how the very thing that men say is impossible becomes a constant witness of how God makes it possible.”

For Bradley, a 2001 graduate of Dallas’ A. Maceo Smith New Tech High School, climbing the steps to real estate excellence didn’t merely come easy.

For starters, Bradley had become a teenage mother, whose lofty aspirations of enrolling in college were ultimately delayed as a result.

Fortunately for Bradley, that is when she sensed it was time to take a much-needed reality check.

SHE’S GOT YOU COVERED — Establishing a solid rapport is extremely imperative for Bradley, 35, one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s most efficient and resourceful real estate agents.

“I went work from job to job and, after constantly being told that I wasn’t good enough or smart enough or polished enough to excel in certain areas, the desire in me grew,” Bradley recalled. “I knew who I was and what I was capable of doing or becoming, so constantly being told no, gave me the desire to go after it even more.”

And after it she went.

And to her credit, she kept at it until she began to possess and savor the favorable results she so desperately sought.

“My girls…they are my inspiration,” Bradley said. “I want them to know that no matter what road life takes you on, the journey you choose is always a reflection from the choices you make.  They have watched me struggle. They have watched me fall and they are now watching me succeed.

Today, unlike never before, Bradley doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s more determined not to just impact the lives of her family, but also others who likewise are struggling to connect with their God-given purpose.

PROFESSOR REALTOR — “As a real estate agent, I try to educate my clients on the process from the beginning,” Bradley told Making Headline News this week. “I have clients who reach out to me with credit scores that are below approval rate. We sit down and put a plan together to repair their credit, while educating them on the importance of it and how to maintain good credit. I always stress that I don’t do credit repair, but teach credit education.”

On August the 11, Bradley’s organization, Moms Undefeated, will host a community-wide empowerment assembly, during which she will stress to mothers from various walks of life the importance of walking in what she labels “the fullness of their purpose.”

“This is near and dear to my heart, something I have dreamt about for over 10 years,” Bradley said. “The name has changed many times, but the vision has always remained the same. I am excited about the launch, and I pray that the lives of many will be changed because of Moms Undefeated.  I’ve always had a passion to help others and, while growing up in my neighborhood, there weren’t a lot of opportunities available…or at least we didn’t know about them.”

“My personal mission for doing (this line of) work is to use it as a platform to encourage, inspire, and minister to people who were like me, who were constantly told no, and who made mistakes in lives, but did not allow those mistakes to hinder them,” Bradley said.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — Given Bradley’s immeasurable track record in this ever-so-competitive industry, she’s one whose reputation is such that she’s accustomed to helping consumers produce favorable results, particularly as it relates to purchasing a home.

By and large, it all starts with self-love and, most importantly, believing in one’s self, Bradley emphasized.

“I believe that a lot of times, we don’t believe in ourselves enough or we get so caught up in seeking validation from others, worrying about who isn’t supporting us that we end up missing out on living our best life,” Bradley said. “It’s important for me to esteem and inspire others daily, because I want others to see that as long as you seek God in everything that you do, what others say, do, or feel, won’t matter.”

Now we know why she isn’t just a real estate agent just to say she’s one.

Rather, she’s one whose reputation is such that she’s accustomed to helping consumers produce favorable results.

Both at buying a home and, most of all, at conquering life.

Texas Evangelist Teresa Tarpley on her nationally-acclaimed book: ‘Once you pick it up, you will not be able to put it back down’

FORT WORTH, Texas — Just after midday on Monday, Evangelist Teresa Tarpley took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather thought-provoking post before her more than 2,600 social media affiliates.

TEXAS SIZE BLESSING — Heeding the worthy advice of her cousin, Evangelist Teresa Tarpley eventually took embraced what undoubtedly was a golden opportunity to put an assortment of her life’s experiences to paper, a trend that had ultimately led to producing of her book entitled, HeartBroken: Now Healed and Delivered.

The post Tarpley displayed read: THE SAME POWER THAT TURNED WATER INTO WINE WILL TURN YOUR CRY TO JOY AND YOUR FAILURE TO SUCCESS.

Much to her delight, Tarpley can greatly attest to this remarkably compelling notion.

As Tarpley vividly explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, it all started sometime in November 2013, during which she was working the graveyard shift.

“The Lord (eventually) had me to start journaling about my life story in 2014,” Tarpley recalled. “I began meeting a lot of family members and one of my cousins was an author of three books. She encouraged me to continue to write in 2015.”

Heeding the worthy advice of her cousin, Tarpley eventually embraced what undoubtedly was a golden opportunity to put an assortment of her life’s experiences to paper, a trend that had ultimately led to producing of her awe-inspiring book entitled, HeartBroken: Now Healed And Delivered.

PURCHASE EVANGELIST TARPLEY’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/HeartBroken-Healed-Delivered-Teresa-Tarpley/dp/0692583734

Released officially on March 28, 2016, Tarpley’s HeartBroken: Now Healed And Delivered is an emotionally-driven written document that depicts her life dating back to before she had turned nine years of age.

In a detailed description of Tarpley’s book at Amazon.com, Tarpley’s life was described as a blur, most notably after the then-young Texas girl had moved away from the projects that were housed inner city Fort Worth, a development that, in actuality, didn’t merely make her life any better.

If nothing else, that’s when the violence began, considering she had been pushed to the background, mostly when she was spiritually imprisoned in the shadow of her older brother, a trend that eventually gave way to that kind of depression that swarmed her life long before she even reached her life’s young adult stage.

As if that wasn’t enough to cause a youngster to question her very existence, Tarpley recalls in her book how upon the birth of her third child, who was born addicted to crack, Child Protective Services had eventually got involved.

“Something had to change,” a spokesperson for Tarpley’s book acknowledged. “But would she have the strength to finally end the mess she’d made and turn her life around?”

Given the immeasurable strides Tarpley has made throughout the years, it’s safe to assume the answer to such an inquiry is a resounding yes.

“This book, Heartbroken: Now Healed And Delivered, has even reached the prisons,” Tarpley, a native Fort Worth, said. “I have received so many letters from inmates who were in prison who can relate to my story. “My testimony is very powerful. It’s about me, how my mom and dad treated me, how my brother was murdered behind weed papers.”

By and large, that’s only a fraction of what Tarpley had to endure at such a young age.

Her book, for instance, also recalls how she had been gang raped and bullied, how she had been hit by a car and locked in the trunk, how she had endured suicide attempts, all of which had ultimately given way to depression, thus caused her to turn to the dreaded life mired by prostitution and drugs — a life that eventually resulted in her giving birth to baby, who had become addicted to crack cocaine.

Still, even after all of that turmoil and chaos and confusion, even after she was left to press and navigate through life, during which it seemed her faith was bleak and she was seemingly on shaky ground, Tarpley responded exactly the way true believers are supposed to.

“I’m still standing,” Tarpley said, harboring a renewed sense of enthusiasm, coupled with a new lease on life.

Not only that, since the release of her book — which is also available on Kindle.com — Tarpley’s story has garnered national headlines.

For all the right reasons, too.

“I’ve been traveling and giving my testimony,” said Tarpley, a Dallas/Fort Worth-area radio personality who host of The Straight Up Radio Show that airs every Friday from 3-4 p.m. CST. “A lot of people pull on me and I love to help people and to encourage them.”

Interestingly, Tarpley admittedly has “been clean from crack cocaine” for more than two decades.

“For 24 years, I have not gotten high and, if God did it for me, He can do it for anybody,” Tarpley said.

BUT GOD — Tarpley’s book also recalls how she had been gang raped and bullied, how she had been hit by car locked and in the trunk, how she had endured suicide attempts, all of which had ultimately given way to depression, thus causing her to turn to the dreaded life of prostitution and drugs and eventually giving birth to baby, who had become addicted to crack cocaine.

As for her forthcoming public appearance to promote her book, she has a number of community-based events on the horizon.

On May 5, her self-founded Hurt-Broken “Now” Here And Delivered Ministries will be hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch for homeless mothers at Unity Park, located 1401 Presidio Street in Fort Worth from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. CST.

In addition, Tarpley is widely known for hosting regular job fairs for ex-offenders, as well as a youth stravaganza for troubled teens, and she has become a fixture for feeding and clothing the homeless.

Also, she’s the facilitator for an area nursing home ministry and she routinely returns to CPS, where she ministers to those with pending cases.

Interestingly, in 2013, Tarpley was the recipient for the Miss Yellow Rose Of Texas, an award signed by then-Texas Govenor Rick Perry, and in 2016, she recieved a Nehemiah Certificate for her notable contributions through evangelism.

“I’m always in the drug and alcohol treatment centers, telling my story,” Tarpley said. “I do a lot of street evangelism and I also host walkathons to stop addictions.”

Talk about advancing the kingdom just as God commands us to.
