ARMY OF THE LORD — As Gore hinted, it was, by all accounts, because of her tenure in the military that essentially allowed her to draw close to God, a development that, much to her delight, drove her to the purpose for which she was created.

As for her competitive drive that has greatly enabled her to discover a greater version of herself, Gore credits her awe-inspiring journey as a disabled Army veteran, a stint that spans nearly two decades.

“I have always been competitive through my years of service,” Gore explained. “And so as I became closer to God, I found out what my true calling was — using the three steps (assist servant leaders to discover their purpose, exercise their power, and walk by faith to live and abundant life).

“God used the Army as a training ground for me to develop as a servant leader, because he was birthing me for such a time as this,” Gore said. “If I could teach, train, and motivate soldiers, God knew I would be ready for His people. So here I am, ready to motivate, inspire and encourage servant leaders to reach their destiny.”


And boy is she putting forth a valiant effort in the process, all the while God continues to strategically enlarge her territory, in large part because of her steadfast act of obedience.

Houston’s Optimum Security Professionals President Marshall Isom bringing awareness to human trafficking


“I am confident that we will one day end the scourge of modern slavery, because I believe in those committed to this issue.” — Former U. S. President Barack Obama


‘NOT ON OUR WATCH’

DALLAS — Marshall D. Isom isn’t just your typical crime prevention professional.

He’s one who diligently thinks outside the box.
Consider, for instance, Isom’s steadfast approach to human trafficking.
“As a husband, father, and businessman, my public safety and security concerns are an extension of the daily thoughts I have for my immediate family and community as well as our staff, employees and clients,” Isom told Making Headline News this week.
It is due in large part because of Isom’s keen passion for combatting human trafficking that the President of Optimum Security Professionals has deemed it essential to stress to private businesses the importance of implementing a strategic and effective security plan for its respective establishments, particularly during arguably the busiest shopping season of the year.
Isom emphasized, among other things, that private businesses should strongly consider executing a security plan that includes — but isn’t limited to — manned patrols, video surveillance, radio communications, access controls.

MORE ON OPTIMUM SECURITY PROFESSIONALS: http://optimumsecuritypros.com/

There are a variety of reasons why, he acknowledged.

“A crime prevention plan is the most essential tool local businesses and living communities can implement to deter and prevent all criminal activity, especially kidnapping simply because it’s proactive,” Isom said. “A failure to plan is a plan to fail.”

According to research implemented by Making Headline News, the publication has learned that human trafficking is extremely common in Texas.

For instance, according to a report at https://alliesagainstslavery.org/, approximately 79,000 minors and youth are victims of sex trafficking in Texas and approximately 240,000 workers are victims of labor trafficking.

There are currently 313,000 victims of human trafficking in Texas and traffickers exploit roughly $600 million from victims of labor trafficking in Texas, the report cited.

What’s even more astounding, the report said, is that minor and youth sex trafficking cost the State of Texas approximately $6.5 billion.


DID YOU KNOW…

By definition, human trafficking is modern day slavery that customarily occurs when one person uses manipulation, threats and/or violence to control another person in order to take advantage of them for economic gain.

Also, human trafficking can take the form of labor exploitation where victims are forced to work without pay. Conversely, labor trafficking occurs across many different economic sectors and industries.

It may also come in the form of sex trafficking where vulnerable individuals are forced to participate in commercial sex acts through force, fraud or coercion (particularly when the individual is not yet 18 years of age).

Given such figures concerning human trafficking, Isom has gone to great lengths to send a rather direct and forthright message to private and local businesses.

“(I’m suggesting they consider) taking a greater interest, even responsibility, in your customers’ safety and security is just good business,” said Isom, who’s also Chairman and CEO of The Proverbs Group, LLC. “The customer’s perception is your reality, meaning if a customer feels threatened by simply visiting your store or shopping center, they are less likely to return. The goal of a company is to earn a customer for life. Please add private security to help reduce this horrific, life altering public safety issue.”

A credible security firm that is headquartered in Houston, specifically at 1980 Post Oak Blvd, Suite 1500, in the Post Oak Central complex, Optimum Security Professionals’ longstanding mission is geared largely toward providing customer service oriented protection, which is the process of preventing the loss of life, property, or injury by strategically combining traditional aspects of guard services, most notably surveillance, client/guest engagement, crisis management, as well as patrolling with the skill and attitude of delivering helpful, professional, high quality assistance.

Optimum Security Professionals provides coverage to over 50 full, part-time, and seasonal (and event) clients throughout the Southeast Texas region, most notably schools, shopping centers, manufacturing and storage facilities.


“Our clients consistently express gratitude for an increase in customer service, job performance, and employee morale and the reduction in safety related events like slip, trip and fall reports and security incidents like breaking and entering, loitering, trespassing and domestic violence,” said Isom, alluding to what his company’s clients’ favorable feedback regarding its viable and strategic security presence.


A father of three who routinely stresses the importance of human trafficking awareness to his family, Isom stressed that private and local businesses often forget the power they have to influence change.

“Please ask your favorite businesses to consider adding security to their daily operations management plan,” Isom emphasized. “It’s also important that everyone learn self-defense. It could save your life. There are techniques that when practiced routinely, can increase your chances of surviving an abduction event.”

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “A crime prevention plan is the most essential tool local businesses and living communities can implement to deter and prevent all criminal activity, especially kidnapping simply because it’s proactive,” Isom said. “A failure to plan is a plan to fail.”

In a strategic attempt to bring about more awareness to human trafficking, Optimum Security Professionals will host a free monthly self-defense class for women in the Houston metropolitan area beginning in December, Isom said.

Arkansas businesswoman Mykia Brooks defies slew of odds, establishes a flourishing nonprofit organization


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 NIV)


GOD’S BEACON OF LIGHT 

SHYNE ON ME — A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, Mykia Brooks is the founder and CEO of Shyne Her Light INC., her Mid-South-area non-profit organization that is centered largely on promoting unity within women empowerment.

To her distinctly unique credit, Mykia Brooks isn’t your typical 27-year-old.

Credit the fact that she’s diligently on fire for God as arguably the biggest reason why.
For what it’s worth, it is due in large part to Brooks’ spirited and innovative disposition that have greatly enabled her to function mightily in her element, both as a Pastor and thriving entrepreneur — with God, her Helper, steering the way.
“What I like most is the women who are motivated by God (and that God is) using me to share my story or encourage them,” Brooks, during an interview this week with Making Headline News said, when asked what she likes the most about her flourishing venture.
A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, Brooks is the founder and CEO of Shyne Her Light INC., her Mid-South-area non-profit organization that is centered largely on promoting unity within women empowerment.

MORE ON SHYNE HER LIGHT INC.: https://www.shyneherlight.org/

Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves.

Moreover, Brooks’ nonprofit organization has steadfastly set itself apart as an advocate for mental health, diabetes, and cancer, she told MHN.

That’s not all.

“Shyne Her Light INC. believes in helping, motivating, and inspiring every woman, no matter her race, background, or where she is from,” Brooks said. “(We strive to) soar into the greatness that she is born to be.”

RAPID GROWTH — Interestingly, Shyne Her Light sometime last year was spearheaded as a women empowerment group on Facebook and nearly 400 women have since joined Brooks’ credible organization, which has become widely known for its fervent commitment to empower, equip, and edify women to become the best versions of themselves..

In addition, Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance.

Also, Shyne Her Light INC. hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but are seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become businesswomen.

“We look forward to the now and future to helping women no matter the situation or her past soar and evolve,” Brooks said.

By and large, Brooks’ Shyne Her Light INC. emerged amid humble beginnings. Amongst the reasons is that Brooks has surpassed things in her life, a trend that had ultimately given way to her ability to disconnect her from her purpose, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of her organization at https://www.shyneherlight.org/aboutceo.


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

But God…

“She has overcome her biggest giants and uses her pain and trauma to empower other women to soar,” said a spoke for Brooks Shyne Her Light INC.

Interestingly and much to her delight, Brooks’ credible organization was birthed primarily when God once commanded her “to keep shining your light,” she recalls.

She’s since taken her Father’s direct commands and made it apart of the divine purpose for which she was created.

Yep, that’s just like God, always providing for His children a much-needed way of escape.


“God gave me that when I was being mentally abused,” said Brooks, alluding to the startup of her nonprofit. “Every time I post about Shyne Her Light, I’m reminded how I beat depression, sickness, suicidal, overcame low self-esteem, and created a platform for women to soar and become whom God intended for them to be.”


Brooks is overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that all things have worked together for her good.

“I knew that I (was) created for a purpose even when I fought my toughest battles of dealing with diabetes and going through the process of almost losing my eyesight,” Brooks explained. “God’s hands were on me for such a time like this. I stand for every woman that have or is facing depression, molestation, hardship, and healing.”

WHAT ABOUT US? Shyne Her Light INC. customarily provides mentoring for individuals ranging in ages 16-and-up, focusing mainly on personal development, professional development, business marketing, and spiritual guidance. Also, Shyne Her Light hosts business seminars for women, particularly those who aspire to start a business or currently run a business, but is seeking to network or gain pertinent information that would greatly enable them to become business women.

Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013.

She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

She will then pursue a Masters in Professional Counseling (Clinical Mental Health) and boasts lofty aspirations of becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor.

Though she has yet to reach her 30’s, Brooks undoubtedly has endured her share of turmoil, from having conquered depression, molestation, low self-esteem, suicidal thoughts, mental abuse in relationships, diabetes, and financial struggles, among other things.

A progressive nonprofit organization that has enjoyed constant success since it went into full operations on September 2, 2019, Brooks’ itinerary includes hosting Shyne Her Light’s inaugural Meet & Greet Seminar on December 21 at 6:30 p.m. CST at Nehemiah’s Holy Temple, the church she pastors that’s located at 1400 Chickasawba in Blytheville.

An event that will be accompanied by the theme, “Sunshine Like A Boss, Act Like A Woman” and is free and open to the public, this meet and greet will feature a few speakers, many of whom will provide strategic insight on starting a business, personal finances, business finances, skin care, having a healthy lifestyle, everyday makeup for working women, digital marking, and “so much more,” Brooks said.


SEASON OF DESTINY STEPS 

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Upon graduating high school in 2010, Brooks earned an Associate’s Degree in Criminology Psychology from Arkansas Northeastern Community College in May 2013. She is currently enrolled at Liberty University, where she is pursuing an undergraduate degree in Life Coach and Counseling Psychology and is expected to graduate is May 2021.

Brooks’ Shyne HER Light was originally named “Shyne Your Light,” which was an encouragement name to which God had introduced her when she was praying on a way to escape a toxic relationship mired by mental abuse.

Interestingly, Brooks would subsequently change the name of her organization to “Shyne HER Light” once her empowerment group was officially established, in large part because she realized all through which she has gone was to help the next woman.

To her credit, she’s been nothing short of remarkable — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Houston businesswoman Toronda Lewis Copeland has become a constant fixture in the financial services industry


As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17 NIV)


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT

HOLDING IT DOWN — Armed with more than three decades of experience in her selected industry, Houston businesswoman Toronda Copeland’s The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting is a Christian-based company that’s based largely on the Biblical premise that’s housed in Proverbs 27:17.

DALLAS — If you ever find yourself conversing with Toronda Lewis Copeland long enough, chances are the notable subject pertaining to the Biblical fellowship known as “iron sharpens iron” will likely come up.

And for all the right reasons.
“I love working with people and helping them make their situation better,” Copeland, an accomplished Houston-area entrepreneur, told Making Headline News this week. “I also love numbers. Serving as a business in the financial services industry continues to allow me to satisfy both passions.”
To her credit, Copeland — a remarkably brilliant financial specialist in her own right — has become a constant fixture throughout the Houston metropolitan area as owner and chief executive officer of The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting.
Armed with more than three decades of experience in her selected industry, Copeland’s The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting is a Christian-based company that’s based largely on the Biblical premise that’s housed in Proverbs 27:17.

We are equipped to handle your business needs.”

As Copeland emphasized, her vision for The Iron Network includes — but isn’t limited to — assisting entrepreneurs in developing their visions into thriving businesses, a trend that would ultimately aid entrepreneurs mightily in moving ever-so-closely toward what she describes as self-actualization.


A NOTABLE REMINDER…

Such a development, in turn, could greatly give way to these business professionals impacting their respective community, Copeland said.

What it practically boils down to, Copeland acknowledged, is strategically executing her personal mission, which is centered largely on promoting financial literacy, particularly by educating women and youth.

“Additionally, I have a mission to build a network of women business owners that connect to support and build up one another in various areas based on the biblical premise found in Proverbs 27:17,” said Copeland, adding that her networking adventure is presently in the works and will launch at a time that has yet to be determined.

A graduate of Whites Creek Comprehensive High School, Copeland advanced her education when she enrolled at University of Phoenix, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management.

For what it’s worth, she certainly boasts the educational and professional credentials which, much to her delight, have allowed her to reap sustained success in her chosen industry.

An endeavor that is steadily generating more a national presence — most notably in Tennessee, Texas, Ohio, Alabama and Illinois — Copeland stressed that as it relates to working with businesses, her primary focus remains in large part on the small business per se, and that age is not a factor.


“When it comes to my life insurance clients, I have a passion for helping young families solidify their financial foundation at a time when the cost to do so is a whole lot less than if they choose to wait until later on life,” Copeland explained. “At the same time, I find great pleasure in assisting clients of all ages to minimize their tax liability and to maximize their tax refunds.”


Speaking of the term, “maximize,” credit Copeland’s parents for having instilled in her at a young  age the benefits of delving the mindset of an entrepreneur, thus maximizing her potential.

“My mother definitely encouraged me to follow my dreams and made me believe that I could do anything and be whatever I wanted to be in life,” Copeland said. “My dad was an entrepreneur and business owner and also instilled work ethic in me. “My dad has always worked for himself. His work ethic was instilled in me. I’ve always had an interest in business.”

So far, so good for this thriving and progressive Texas-based businesswoman, whose best and brightest days undoubtedly are well ahead of her.

Yep. That goes to show that only what you do for Christ will last.

HERE’S THE 411 — What it practically boils down to, Copeland, acknowledged, is strategically executing her personal mission, which is centered largely on promoting financial literacy, particularly by educating women and youth.

“I love sharing the knowledge that I have,” said Copeland, who became knowledgeable of the tax industry in the late eighties, then formed featured business two years ago, a venture that has since allowed her to engage in bookkeeping, tax resolution, and credit repair.

Interestingly, Copeland earned her insurance license in 2009.

As for her itinerary, she’s currently working on an event in Nashville during which she will bring a broader awareness about financial literacy, as well as the importance of credit.

Also, she announced that plans are currently in the works to hold an event in Houston with two other agencies during which the focus will be geared toward women in what she deems four vital areas: spirituality, self-awareness, business, and finances.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A graduate of Whites Creek Comprehensive High School, Copeland advanced her education when she enrolled at University of Phoenix, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management.

In addition, Copeland will appear on a Dallas/Fort Worth-area radio show for a scheduled interview sometime in late October.

“I believe it is important to transfer knowledge, help others grow, and create a legacy for future generations,” Copeland said.

Sounding very much like the remarkably brilliant financial mastermind for whom she is widely known.

Arkansas author ‘Nahnee’ recalls disastrous season of her young life in her book, ‘Convicted At 16’


Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear (Qur’an 02:286)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES — On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Author Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course. Nahnee is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Convicted At 16.”

DALLAS — For the rising author known as “Nahnee,” such a memorable vision emerged during what undoubtedly was the darkest season of her young life.

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.
The vision to which Nahnee is alluding is the one that fueled her desire to compose the book entitled, “Convicted At 16,” her newly-produced written work that came full circle during her unlikely incarceration as a minor.
On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course.
“While I was incarcerated, I cried every day about how I would someday write a book to tell my story, because people painted the picture of me as a murderer,” Nahnee, a Little Rock, Arkansas resident, explained. “On the side of that, my 14-year-old brother was involved as well, and I felt like if it wasn’t for me, he would of been able to live his life free.”

BUY NAHNEE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y1ZSVCT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4mqIDbR719HYN

A book that is comprised of 186 pages in length (the eBook is 86 pages), Nahnee’s “Convicted At 16” is centered largely on one decision which, according to this gifted writer, has not only taken the life of her close friend, but could very well take away everything that matters to her, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48163918-convicted-at-16.

“With a charge of capital murder hanging over her head, 15-year-old Nahnee is forced to take on an adult role as she battles for her freedom,” said a spokesperson for “Convicted At 16.”

As Nahnee explained to MHN, there was no doubt that her life at the tender age of 15 had “took a turn,” she said.

A turn for the worst, to put it more specifically.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this now 27-year-old author, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape.

“Five years…five months and nine days locked up,” said Nahnee, a Long Beach, California native, recalling how long she was confined between the dreaded walls of a jail cell. “Now I can say I’ve overcame many struggles being incarcerated at 15.”

Interestingly, Nahnee’s book also depicts a development during which she was involved with a man whom, according to this author, controlling, was abusive and manipulative.

Not to mention up to no good.

“He led me to set up robberies on people whom I was good friends of people I knew,” Nahnee recalled. “My book talks about one robbery that almost took place but didn’t, because my brother came home early from work. It also mentions a robbery that did happened an how the guy I was dating made me make the call and give orders to my friend on where to come.”

As Nahnee vividly explained, she had no choice but to do what she was told out of fear that something unfavorable would happen to her.

“There was no way out…and hadn’t been for three years of our relationship,” she told MHN. “I went through peer pressure, neglecting my family, disrespecting my mother and my father.”

All of these things, she acknowledged, her ill-advised decisions had led to a horrific crime involving two of her close friends, both of whom were robbed at gun point, one of whose life was cut short amid a cold-blooded murder.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this once downtrodden woman of distinct beauty, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape — one she didn’t sense would have come to fruition.

Not on her time watch.


“I have gotten awesome feedback from my book about how people see why I’m so cautious in my everyday life,” Nahnee said. “I struggle with opening up and trusting people. My dignity has been stripped. My freedom has been robbed. People have a better understanding of why I am the way I am and why I move the way I move with grace and caution.”


While she has no current speaking engagements to promote her new book, another book is forthcoming, Nahnee said.

Generally, Nahnee emphasized that her book was assembled, largely to bring about awareness to other millennials, most notably about the consequences for courting someone twice their age.

BEAUTY FOR ASHES 

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.

“I just want to reach young girls and boys (and to let them know) it’s not okay to date someone twice your age,” Nahnee said. “It’s okay to be different and respect your upbringing. I want people to know that if you are in a legal situation and you are under 18, don’t speak until your guardian is present to sign anything.

“I want people to be aware of their rights and that sometimes you’re tricked into thinking you’re going home, but yet you just opened your mouth that could potentially cause your life to be thrown away.”

Something to which she greatly attest.

But God.

Texas author Neiki Jones’ awe-inspiring new book figures to be a huge must read

 


And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9 KJV)


GETTIN’ SPIRITUALLY FIT

DESTINY STEPS — In the coming weeks, a massive portion of Neiki Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”

DALLAS — It’s doesn’t matter what she endured in the past.

It’s all working out for the good for Neiki Jones.

Consider, for instance, the immeasurable strides Jones has made as a rising author.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jones spoke intensely about how she has blessed mightily to connect with her long-awaited vision, particularly through her compelling gift as a writer.

“God actually gave me the vision to write a book about three years ago,” Jones recalled. “I began to write, then life happened and I stopped.”

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

And, in the coming weeks, a massive portion of Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”


PRESALE ORDER NEIKI JONES’ BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/neikij

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” is a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

“In 2018, that is when the dynamic of the content of the book changed along with the title,” Jones said.

Despite the name change of her first book, it’s safe to assume that Jones’ freshman written work will undoubtedly be a thing of beauty.

For starters, this spiritually-empowering and spiritually gut-checking project, by all accounts, is a printed sermon in its own right, given the featured and pivotal message this writer aspires to get across to her reading audience.


“The divine message I am sending to the audience through this book is that regardless of what life throws at you that giving up is not an option,” explained Jones, sounding very much like a missionary or licensed evangelist. “Also, (you must) not allow fear or people’s opinions stop you from reaching your full potential.”


Let the church say Amen.

But wait. There’s more to this awe-inspiring book that figures to be a constant page-turner for those we deem it necessary to purchase it.

“Never let anyone define who you are, and there is greatness on the inside of you,” said Jones, offering more of what her readers are in for through her new book. “We all have been purposed with a gift and the gift that is on the inside of you might be dormant, but you must connect to the right source. You have to activate that which is on the inside of you.”


THUS SAID THE LORD…

Suddenly, Jones felt compelled to offer a rather intriguing, captivating illustration as it pertains to breaking down her message.

“Just like a battery in our car, when it goes dead, we have jumper cables and have to connect to a battery that has power in order for the car to run,” Jones explained. “(We) just have to make sure we are connected to another battery that has power and not another dead battery.”

A book she began composing in August 2018, Jones needed just shy of a year to complete “When The Pieces Begin To Fit.”

“The (single, most) underlying reason for me to produce this book was to provide hope to those whose lives or situations seem hopeless,” Jones said.

As Jones acknowledged, a few of her peers sensed that her book was long overdue.

“When I first let others know that I was writing a book, the feedback I received was, ‘It is about time,’” Jones said. “So many individuals would tell me that it is time for my story to come out to help others.”

Now that her life-enhancing project is weeks away from making its  ceremonious debut, Jones has announced that another book is surely on the horizon, hopefully much sooner than later.

Interestingly, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Interesting, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Widely regarded as a broad-based community outreach organization, ALAYA  Ministries’ strategic emphasis is dedicated largely to promoting empowerment to women, men and children.

According to organizers for ALAYA  Ministries, this is done by equipping them to achieve leadership skills through support services, personal growth, classes and workshops.

In addition, this allows them to become self-sufficient which, according to ministry officials, is considered unlocking the potential of effective leaders.

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

As for her book, Jones said: “I want people to know that we all have experienced our ‘there’ moment, and to be honest, we still might be in our ‘there,’ but you will come out. In your darkest moments, trust God even more, lean on your faith even more, and see the salvation of the Lord come through for you.

“It is important to understand the season that which you are in,” Jones added. “The higher one goes, expect adversity, but know that God is with you and He is carrying you when you cannot carry yourself.”

Because at the end of the real day, it’ll all work out for your good — something to which this author can greatly attest.

Is Dallas entrepreneur Sakina G. Jackson the seasoning mix industry’s best kept secret?

OVERFLOW SEASON-ING 

SALT OF THE EARTH — The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Sakina G. Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s fielding orders all across the country.

DESOTO, Texas — Just recently, Sakina G. Jackson took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather spirited post to her timeline.

Don’t get twisted, mind you. She wasn’t merely bragging.
If nothing else, she was only enlightening the masses of the continuous buzz surrounding what is shaping up to be a globally-acclaimed invention for the ages.
Said Jackson before her hundreds of social media followers: “I’m just saying! Get you some Big Toe Seasonings.”
For what it’s worth, Jackson undoubtedly has earned the right to exemplify such passion for a product that figures to turn heads in countless of households and restaurants for years to come.
Never mind that she senses those avenues by which to start a company is very much like birthing a baby — to put it more appropriately.

MORE ON BIG TOE SEASONING LLC: https://bigtoeseasonings.com/

“Growing up in a family of seven, five siblings and being a tomboy, winning in life has always been a goal,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “I started working in Corporate America in the 90’s as a legal services company (during) which there were many competitors. Learning to be my best in all areas of business was imperative.”

Speaking of being her best, Jackson’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she’s been nothing short of remarkable.

The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s routinely fielding orders all across the country.

Interestingly, she’s essentially gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in the tri-state areas that’s comprised of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

“I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said. “My products have traveled to more places than I have myself have (she continued while laughing).  I am hoping to catch up.”

FINISHED PRODUCT — Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Most recently, Jackson engaged in a rather festive and intriguing tour she famously dubbed as “FLAVAs,” during which she was afforded golden opportunities to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display.

As usual, she was as good as advertised, in large part because consumers have come to embrace — and savor — Jackson’s delectable, mouthwatering seasonings, especially her annual holiday season’s faithful three: Lemon Pepper, Creole, and the Big Toe’s ever-so-popular Bless Yo Heart seasoning, a traditionally historic southern catchphrase Jackson’s granddaughter is responsible for having named.

LOCKED AND LOADED — Interestingly, Jackson essentially has gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in establishments such as Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. “I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said.

A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained entrepreneurial success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough.

Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

Such an assignment had ultimately lasted some eight years which, to Jackson’s surprise, had given way to her being named Director of Municipal Court.


DID YOU KNOW…


“I do attribute this growth to a manager, who saw my leadership qualities, which quite frankly, stemmed from several years in corporate and my vast entrepreneurial skills,” Jackson said. “Becoming a mother heightened this desire as I wanted my children and grandchildren to know that if they educate themselves in whatever they set out to do in life, they too, can achieve success.  I now have moved into inspiring friends, women, veterans, youth to live their truth.”


Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

FOR STARTERS — A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough. Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

So don’t get it twisted.

“In all honesty, I have come to know that how we treat and help one another is a direct correlation with our own joy and happiness,” Jackson said. “A soul that simply exists to please him or herself is usually in my experience a very sad individual…a void of inner joy.  Therefore, I live to inspire others of all ethnic groups, ages, and cultures. It is my truth.”

Bless her ‘lil heart.

New York author Gloria V. Key defies insurmountable odds, prospers mightily as mentioned in her book


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


KEYS TO VICTORY 

MOTOWN MIRACLE — Gloria V. Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come. A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

Gloria V. Key steadfastly planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith.

Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.
“I choose to write the book initially to inspire and motivate others to further their education, and to let others know that it’s never too late to go back to school or accomplish your dreams,” Key told Making Headline News during a weekend interview . “As time went on, I realized my message was much bigger than that.”
Indeed it was.
So much so that Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

For instance, Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

SEEDS OF GREATNESS — Key planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith. Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

“Her faith in God and family lifted her from the abyss to new heights,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Key’s book. As an adult, she earned multiple college degrees and certifications despite being the sole caretaker of her children and multiple nieces and nephews.

“She is the embodiment of determination and perseverance. From homelessness to hopefulness, poverty to prosperity, Gloria Key’s emotional roller coaster ride proves that you can achieve anything you desire and help others do the same.”

Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

To her credit, there did, by all accounts, emerge a much-anticipated breakthrough amid Key’s sometimes stormy and rocky journey, one that was ceremoniously capped by her acquiring a degree from the prestigious Fordham University, a historic, private New York City-based institution that was founded in 1841.

A book that is co-authored by Marc Hoberman, Key emphasized, among other things, that her book serves as a notable reminder that there is true meaning to one’s life, regardless of how discomforting life becomes.


“My divine message is to let others know that despite what you have gone through, God hasn’t forgotten you,” Key said. “(This book is a reminder) to have faith and trust God with all things.”


Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

“I have received overwhelmingly positive responses from my book,” said Key, who began composing her book sometime last year. “People have literally called me in tears, stating that they can relate to the challenges I’ve gone through in my life.”


DESTINY STEPS 

Some, in fact, were practically astounded by this writer’s wealth of transparency in her written work.

“People around me were shocked at the grim details of my life stating, ‘Oh my God…through all that, you’ve always been a positive person with a smile and words of encouragement for others,’” Key recalled. “I am so pleased that I’ve actually motivated others to go back to school including my own son. Others have gotten the courage to seek that promotion at work or learned coping strategies.”

Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

Just recently, she appeared on a podcast entitled, “The Susan Brender Show” and has spoken publicly about her book at her church and other community-related events.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

“I believe that God has brought me full circle,” Key said. “I’ve had such an incredibly challenging life afflicted with so many obstacles, and just around age 50 when I thought I was done or just comfortable, God unleashed His Master Plan.”

Most importantly, He provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

Houston-area author Nicole Michelle advancing the kingdom mightily through her immeasurable writing gift


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose; For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; And those He predestined, He also called; those He called, He also justified; those He justified, He also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:28-31 KJV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has assembled three books to date. Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,” “Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

DALLAS — Prayer. Purpose. Power.

To her distinctly unique credit, these are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

According to a detailed introduction at https://nicolemichelle.com/, Nicole Michelle is widely regarded as an accomplished evangelist, one who has been appropriately dubbed a “multi- dimensional” Proverbs 31 woman whom, much to her delight, firmly believes when much is given, even more is required.

Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has penned three books to date.

Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,”Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

For Nicole Michelle, each of her awe-inspiring books is a thing of beauty, in large part because these projects are steadily having a massive impact, particularly in the Body of Christ.

“In 2012, I went through a prayer desert where I literally could not pray,” Nicole Michelle told Making Headline News this week. “(I’m) a prayer warrior and an intercessor….but I could not pray.  The only words I could utter were, ‘Lord, bless the mess.’ That is what my life was at that time, a mess. But God turned my mess into my message.”

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle said.

“God spoke to me and said, ‘If you could not pray as the prayer warrior and intercessor that you are, what about my other children?’” Nicole Michelle recalled. “God downloaded over 350 prayer topics to me and I released my first volume of 110 prayer topics in February 2017.”

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

And just like that, she had steadfastly found her niche in this, the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“I wanted to circumvent any other prayer desert,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining in detailed the purpose for her books. “My books are meant to be catalysts that allow individuals to jump start their prayer life through daily devotional time with God.

As for “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You,” this Houston-area author emphasized, among other things, that this project was designed to allow individuals to become what she appropriately describes as their “best financial self,” a rather unique and essential disposition that aligns with 3 John 1:2, she acknowledged.

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

Subsequently, her first volume was released in Spring 2017, followed by the ensuing volume approximately two years later.

To her credit, she’s since been as good as advertised as a rising and gifted author.

To God be the glory.

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mention spiritually empowering.

“I have had First Ladies tell me that the prayer devotional literally saved their marriage, because they could spend their devotional time in prayer and privately deal with their issues and concerns by getting naked before God,” Nicole Michelle said. “Love covers a multitude of faults. God knows the evidence, but He conceals it from the enemy and your enemies. God also has a witness protection program that will change your identity once you have been purged and cleansed with His Word.”

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

She has, in fact, announced the future releases of four devotional volumes that will be centered on “Faith, Family, Healing and, Deliverance,” she said.

“My tests have become my testimonies,” Nicole Michelle said. “God has given me a ministry of transparency and allowed me to share with others the knowledge that I have garnered over the years. Knowledge is power and it is important that we utilize the resources around us to tap into that power.

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

“My gift has made room for me and allowed me to share the good news of the Gospel across this nation.”

Thanks in large part to:  Prayer. Purpose. Power.
