Atlanta-area author Lisa Duffey takes another step toward her destiny in ‘I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.’


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


DALLAS — It was a rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in Lisa Duffey’s life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

“I got the vision about three years ago but never acted on it,” Duffey, an Atlanta-area author, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the memorable, emotionally-driven developments that led to her contributing to a soon-to-be released book. “It was just too painful. Then I began to see women coming out, talking about their experiences regarding sexual abuse and domestic violence.”


GOD’S VIRTUOUS WOMAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Hempstead, New York, Lisa Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

A native of Hempstead, New York, Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

An awe-inspiring, spiritually gut-checking project that is forwarded by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens, the sophomore edition of “I Am A Black Woman” is widely known as “One Voice” and addresses a variety of pertinent topics — most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

 

For Duffey, that she was afforded the golden opportunity to share of her life-enhancing experiences in the second edition of this book, by all accounts, was a defining moments in the life of a woman who knows full well she’s been set aside for God’s use.

“I was approached by one of the co-authors and found out they were working on this project,” Duffey explained. “That is when I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I was ready to tell my story.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

That’s because not only has Duffey dauntlessly disclosed of her assortment of testimonies while fortifying pure boldness and confidence but, more than anything, it seems that joining forces with a gallery of Christian-oriented authors has become a clear path toward her purpose.

Her destiny, too.


FOR IT IS WRITTEN…

“I chose to write this chapter, because I needed to heal from past hurts — physically and emotionally — and also let other women know that this kind of behavior should not be tolerated from the men in their life,” said Duffey, recalling her stormy, tumultuous past that was mired by her being victimized by a dark season of child molestation.

“I put up with it from age 14 to 30.  As I began to put my story on paper, I realized I had things locked away in secret places in my mind, and as those places were opened, I began to forgive those that had hurt me.”

To her credit, the more she customarily grasped the power of forgiveness, the more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound.


THE FIGHT WAS FIXED

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS — For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

The more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound, the more God began to steer her toward her purpose.

The more God began to steer her toward her purpose, the more she began to discover just how much her immeasurable gifts were needed, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

Look at her today, a true, big-hearted and devout woman of faith, pressing and navigating mightily toward her destiny for such a spirited, life-changing time as now.

Yep. That’s just like God.


“God has and is still using me to show empathy and compassion for women who have or are going through what I went through,” said Duffey, explaining how “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” has become part of the purpose for which God has created her. “It’s easy to tell someone to leave a horrible relationship when they have not been through one. Since I been through it all, I get it…some women just can’t pick up and leave. They have to stay and endure the hardship and pain. Those on the outside should be there for them and not be judgmental.”


Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

And with “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” set to be released in the coming months, this brilliant and talent author has already become the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback.

So much for the rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in her life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

That was then.

This is now.

STAY TUNED — Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

A new season, accompanied by new memories, accompanied new mercies — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“It’s been rough, watching my dad beat my mother constantly and trying kill her in front of us,” Duffey said. “Becoming a teenage girl and being beaten constantly, mistreated, beaten up, raped, sodomized…I can go on and on.  I felt hopeless.”

Still, amongst the things that Duffey has ultimately discovered is that in spite of her slew of hell and high water encounters, God had miraculous plans for her life.

“One day, I did a simple equation, 2-1=1,” Duffey recalled. “I realized that if I took myself out of the equation, that meant 1 less headache — the man in my life — and that’s what I finally did after so many years.  At 56 (years of age), I am married to a wonderful man. (I’m a) mother of six wonderful adult children, I have three stepchildren, 10 grandchildren, been on my job as a tax analyst for 32 years, and married to a wonderful man named Keith Duffey.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for us an emphatic, memorable way of escape.

Georgia author Dr. Cheryl Minter is a global beacon of light courtesy of her awe-inspiring books


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, since you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


DALLAS — Dr. Cheryl Minter isn’t just widely known for the being the Founder and Senior Pastor of Anointed Word Life Center in East Point, Georgia.

Because of whom she is and because of the God-mandated calling on her life, she’s positioned herself to lead God’s people around the word, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an author.

A native of Macon, Georgia, Minter has been blessed to compose five books to date, one of which is entitled, “Go Get Your Blessing,” her latest project she had co-written with her daughter, Brittany Ross.


ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Macon, Georgia, Dr. Cheryl Minter has been blessed to compose five books to date, one which is entitled, “Go Get Your Blessing,” her latest project she had co-written with her daughter, Brittany Ross.

“God gave me the vision back in 2000 to put to paper,” Dr. Minter, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that led to her delving off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship. “God explained to me that there would be people that would need to hear my story.”

Not only has Dr. Minter been blessed with the ideal platform to bless and enlighten the masses of her assortment of awe-inspiring testimonies that have helped shape and mold her into a monumental beacon of light throughout the Body of Christ, but her transparency through her books is steadily helping lure people to Christ.

“Many people would be going through similar testing, but they needed to know that their way was already prosperous and the plan that God executed for them at the beginning of time would stand the test of time,” Dr. said Minter, explained in great detail her mission for having assembled her starting lineup of books. “And I would be one of the examples that God would use in the earth to get His messages across.”

A 1982 graduate of Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, it wasn’t until approximately 11 years after Dr. Minter had caught the vision to become an author that “God’s Anointed Word Fulfilling Destiny,” her first published written work, had come full circle.

To her credit, it seemed that once book No. 1 had made its much-anticipated presence on the market, others would soon follow.

That’s because in 2013, Dr. Minter’s Coffee Talk Part 1 was officially released, followed by Coffee Talk Part 2 in 2014.

COFFEE ANYONE? In 2013, Dr. Minter’s Coffee Talk Part 1 was officially released, followed by Coffee Talk Part 2 in 2014.

Not to be outdone, Dr. Minter would join forces with 14 other authors to compose a collaborative written document entitled, “Second Chance Living,” an intriguing and informative project that was released just months after the second edition of Coffee Talk.

And then there is her latest book, “Go Get Your Blessing,” a book in which she paired with her daughter to assemble and is nearly three years removed since its release.


“The divine message in each book is that God is the Author and Finisher of our faith, that no matter what tests or trials we go through first, we are not alone,” said Dr. Minter sounding as if she’s giving a sermon from behind a sacred desk. “And if we don’t allow what is trying us to die in us, we will rise again with better ideas and a new creative process, but we must let go of the old and trust God for the new.”


A 1982 graduate of Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Education, it wasn’t until approximately 11 years after Dr. Minter had caught the vision to become an author that “God’s Anointed Word Fulfilling Destiny,” her first published written work, had come full circle.

Interestingly, Dr. Minter emphasized, among other things, why many of God’s people fail to fully adhere to these spiritual attributes.

“The reason we don’t understand is because it’s new and unfamiliar territory,” said Dr. Minter, whose notable accolades includes having graduated from the World Changers Ministries School of Ministry under the leadership of renowned Pastor Creflo Dollar. “If it was a process we’re used to, then we wouldn’t be afraid or have fear. Fear will cause you to stay stuck where it is unproductive and a strain.”

At this point during the interview, a full-fledge sermon had broken out by one of the Body of Christ’s most accomplished pastors-turned-authors.

“If Joseph had not been sold, he never would have been second in command with the King,” Dr. Minter explained. “If Abraham had not moved, he never would have been the father of many nations.”

In a nutshell, Dr. Minter acknowledged, what it all boils down to is our willingness to simply step out on faith, which seems to be the featured theme of her gallery of books.

And then there is her latest book, “Go Get Your Blessing,” a book in which she paired with her daughter to assemble and is nearly three years removed since its release.

“Our leaping causes us to reach and touch people we never imagined,” Dr. Minter said. “This process not only provides for others, but it provides something for us as well.

David used a sling to kill Goliath; he brought him before the king, married the king’s daughter, and lived in the king’s house. I learned to trust in the process that God had already proven and provided.”

Generally, the feedback since the release of her books has been positive for the most part, said Dr. Minter, a divorced mother of four children, three of whom have earned college degrees, the other having acquired certification from trade school.

“And everyone is doing fine with the help of God,” said Dr. Minter whom, to her credit, is steadfastly proving to be a global beacon of light, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an author.

Arkansas author Victoria Evans’ ‘Pieces Of Me’ figures to be a brilliant must read, constant page-turner


I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV)


DALLAS — Victoria Evans had no lofty idea.

In fact, she couldn’t even see it, quite frankly.

Then just like that, God stepped in and revealed Himself as only He could.


PIECES OF SUCCESS 

DESTINY STEPS — A credible life coach and recent graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Victoria Evans is the mastermind behind the soon-to-be-released book entitled, “Pieces Of Me,” her newly-assembled written document that is expected to help advance the kingdom mightily.

For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation had come wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life.

Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“It took a while to accept what was put in front of me, but I made a decision to follow God’s promise,” Evans, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author, told Making Headline News this week.

For what it’s worth, it’s wasn’t until Evans steadfastly followed God’s lead that she, in turn, was introduced to the vision for which she was created.

NOT TOO EARLY — While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, Evans told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

While a release date for Evans’ book has yet to be determined, she told MHN on Thursday that her new project is scheduled to be available this summer and that consumers can began requesting presale orders.

Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

To her credit, Evans’ “Pieces Of Me” figures to be an constant page-turner, primarily because it is centered largely on reaching people whom she says are “silently dying” or “suffering in pain,” particularly from the struggles they sense are too embarrassing to speak about, she said.

“I want to be a voice for others,” Evans says without hesitation.

It is, by all accounts, because of her eloquent voice through “Pieces Of Me” that has proven to serve as not just a spiritual spokesperson for those in dire need of breakthrough but, above all, her voice through her writings is indicative of just how much God has entrusted her to help enrich and empower the lives of His people for such a pivotal time as now.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — For Evans, amongst the things she discovered was that God’s revelation came wrapped up in a promise, a pledge that would ultimately change the overall landscape of her life. Never mind that she wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.


“My message through this book is that it is okay to go through struggles and sometimes feel like we aren’t going to make it, but it’s what we do to grow from it that matters. We get to choose to live or die in those situations. Not just physical death, but spiritually as well.” — Author Victoria Evans


Although she’s already fielding favorable feedback from a book that is months away from its official release, Evans emphasized, among other things: “I hope that the people that know me now can look at me and feel that (they are) much more empowered to live out their dreams and know that there is nothing you can’t do regardless of adversities we face.”

A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of a year-and-a-half to compose — “I began writing the book the summer of 2017 and I finished at the end of 2018,” she said — Evans is thoroughly convinced that “Pieces Of Me” is in alignment with her divine purpose.

“I know this book is a part of the purpose God has created for me, because every one of us has a story to tell,” Evans said. “We just have to find a way to tell it. Some choose through music, others through art. My choice was writing.”

And what a remarkably compelling masterpiece it is.


VICTORIOUS VICTORIA 

NATIONAL IMPACT — Evans is scheduled to take part in an East Coast promotional radio tour in June, during which she will promote her new book. Also, she will be the keynote speaker at a commencement in the coming months, during which she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote “Pieces Of Me.”

Never mind that she initially wasn’t so swift to embrace that about which was unfolding right before her very eyes.

“Not many people know my background or the things that I have faced in my life,” said Evans, adding that another book is surely forthcoming. “And, for a lot of it, I chose to keep quiet in fear of hurting others. It came to a point in my life that I had to make a decision: Do I choose me or everyone else? I had to choose me. For the first time in a while, it was like breathing that first deep breath after drowning.”

Talk about appropriately picking up the broken pieces, all of which were designed to catapult her to her destiny from the outset.

Atlanta-area empowerment extraordinaire Sylinda Mumphery to host 3rd Annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony


PURCHASE TICKETS TO THIRD ANNUAL RTB WINNING WOMEN AWARDS CEREMONY HERE: https://www.sylindad.com/


Sylinda Mumphery’s spiritual reputation is such that she has a heart for embracing women who have emerged as feel good stories.

Men, too.

Such will be the case when Mumphery host the third annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony on March 16 in Smyrna, Georgia.

CHANGING A GENERATION 

HEART FOR GOD’S PEOPLE — Atlanta-area businesswoman Sylinda Mumphery’s spiritual reputation is such that she has a heart for embracing women who have emerged as feel good stories. Such will be the case when Mumphery host the third annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony on March 16 in Smyrna, Georgia.

Powered by Women’s History Month, the RTB (or Removing The Bandages) Winning Women Awards Ceremony will take place at the Smyrna Community Center, located at 200 Village Green Circle SE.

“The purpose of this event is to honor and celebrate women who are overcomers and survivors of domestic violence, rape, cancer, burn victims, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and so much more,” Mumphery told Making Headline News this week. “We also celebrate and honor women who are making a difference in the lives of others by giving back to their communities or serving our country.”

In addition, Mumphery said this event is essential, in large part because women customarily carry what she describes as “a lot of pain and sometimes carry our wounds in our wombs.”

“There are many that want to give up and throw in the towel,” Mumphery said. “Therefore, we take this night to uplift each woman and let our sisters know that we love them and that no matter what has happened, we are not what happened to us.  We are beautiful, powerful, and have a purpose in life.”

The owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC, Mumphery’s RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony is a three-day event that will commence with a with an opening-day meet-and-greet on Friday, March 15.

The actual event will begin the next day and will culminate on Sunday with attendees engaging in morning worship and brunch.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.sylindad.com/.

“It’s a full weekend of sisterhood, empowerment, love and excitement,” Mumphery said.

Interestingly, for the time since the inception of Mumphery’s awards ceremony, there will be a segment that will be centered on honoring men, most notably three recipients who will become beneficiaries of the Mighty Man of Valor Awards.


“Our purpose for honoring men this year is that we’ve had a lot of men that have begun to follow the movement. We realize that men wear bandages as well, but carry their wounds differently. Many have survived through battles that should have killed them, but they came out alive and are also making a difference and giving back. They also deserve to be honored and celebrated for not giving up and standing tall for their family, friends, and community.” — Sylinda Mumphery


Having described the feedback as “incredible” since the inception of her event, Mumphery emphasized the RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony essentially is a platform, of sorts, for those being honored to tell their stories and testimonies of how God spared their lives and how they’ve had to overcome a slew of obstacles in order to continue standing strong, she said.

HATS OFF TO YOU BROTHAS — Interestingly, for the time since the inception of Mumphery’s awards ceremony, there will be a segment that will be centered on honoring men, most notably three recipients who will become beneficiaries of the Mighty Man of Valor Awards.

“For some, it’s their first time ever being honored or telling their story,” said Mumphery, who’s also an accomplished author, mentor, speaker, and an Atlanta-area radio talk show host. “So often we experience life’s interruptions and become blindsided, because we never expected certain situations, incidents, or tragedies to affect us directly.

Much to her delight, Mumphery’s assortment of hardships and personal tragedies throughout the years have never caused her waver. If nothing else, such unfavorable circumstances only fueled her desire to press and navigate toward her destiny, most notably through a movement that had become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

LETTING HER LIGHT SHINE — Having described the feedback as “incredible” since the inception of her event, Mumphery emphasized the RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony essentially is a platform, of sorts, for those being honored to tell their stories and testimonies of how God spared their lives and how they’ve had to overcome a slew of obstacles in order to continue standing strong, she said.

“(The) Removing The Bandages Movement was birthed out of brokenness,” Mumphery said. “I never knew that God could take broken pieces and create beautiful art.  After having two breast cancer scares and almost losing my left breast, I was hurt and ashamed of my wound.  I thought that if I wore bandages daily, that I would not notice the scars.  Even after losing everything and facing divorce, I thought that makeup, expensive jewelry, expensive car, shoes and clothes would cover the pain.

“As women, we look for love in all the wrong places and sometimes cause self-inflicted wounds to ourselves,” Mumphery continued. “This movement moves inside of me wherever I go, because every time I come in contact with a woman — no matter her race, socioeconomic status, background, size or shape — I want her to know that she does not have to live her life behind her bandages and that once she rips them off of her and embrace her scars, she will eventually find out that they are now her beauty mark, because God will give you beauty for ashes.”

Arkansas author Urica Ray conquers her ‘valley and dry place’ experiences, writes a life-changing book


But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)


DALLAS — Urica Ray fielded the question as if she expected it.

“I’m glad you asked,” Ray, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling when God had given her the vision to assemble her new book. “I actually started writing the book on March 7, 2015.”

After having spent the next three years or so brainstorming, Ray officially began composing “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain” in November 2018.

A RAY OF BLESSINGS 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — Even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Mid-South author Urica Ray her strategic assignment through her book entitled, “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

By month’s end, her awe-inspiring masterpiece was all but complete and, much to her delight, it has been nothing short of remarkable.

As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season, one she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

“And I couldn’t understand that dry place but it had to happen,” Ray said without hesitation. “At this particular time, I felt like a baby in an incubator, fighting for my life. You know, a baby in an incubator is waiting on the physician to come and see about him or her, and that’s how I felt. I felt like I was in an incubator, waiting on God, waiting to see, hear, and waiting on a touch from Him.”

STANDING OVATION — Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part, Ray said.

As Ray had ultimately discovered, it was time in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator that proved to be a defining moment, of sorts, particularly as it pertains to this Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author stepping out on faith even when it seemed her faith was bleak.

In fact, even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Ray her strategic assignment through “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

Because after all, amongst the notable factors she’s grasped is that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that God had a divine purpose for this devout woman of faith even while being confined to that spiritual incubator.


“The message I want the people to know and see is that God’s hand is not too small. Sometimes, the valley place is our blessed place. We have to go through the valley in order to get to the promise.” — Author Urica Ray 


BUT GOD — As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part.

“The feedback (has been) amazing from the readers, and some were emotional just to see the lives of people gaining strength, hope, and faith,” said Ray, adding that a second book undoubtedly is forthcoming, although a specific timeframe has yet to be determine.

A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

As for her itinerary, Ray announced that she has a few life-coaching events scheduled for some time in April. Also, will appear on Jonesboro’s KLEK 102.5 F.M. in the coming months, during which she and other LCSA authors will discuss a variety of stories and other topics.

Given all through which she’s overcome, Ray doesn’t shy away from the notion that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


THUS SAID THE LORD…

“The purpose God created (me) is in His word in Jeremiah 1:5 that says: “Before I formed you, I knew you; before you were born I set you apart,’” Ray said. “And that part of the scripture says enough, letting me know that His plans are not like man, so therefore, my book was not created for me, but for someone who will cross the same path as I.”

What a difference a season in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator has made.

South Carolina author Cherell Evans Latimer’s books empowering women to overpower domestic violence


And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)


IN A GOOD PLACE

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A book that Cherell Evans Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

Cherell Evans Latimer doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has a spiritual place.

As far as she’s concerned, she’s destined to go to great lengths to protect it all cost.

Consider, for instance, how Latimer’s proverbial spiritual place was essentially challenged, particularly during a time in which God was strategically positioning her to engage in a life-changing assignment.

As Latimer recalled, it all unfolded about a year or so ago.

“(In) January of 2018, I was focusing on my relationship with God more and more,” Latimer told Making Headline News this week. “I couldn’t find any books that interest me. I would usually read paranormal fictions, but they were disrupting my spiritual place.”

Ahhh…

GOD’S PLAN — A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

So that is when Latimer had begun to witness her life’s much-anticipated turning point, one that had ultimately catapulted her to what undoubtedly has become a ceremoniously chapter in the process.

“When I searched for Christian fiction (books), I didn’t find anything that would keep me interested, so God gave me this story line,” Latimer said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOR STARTERS — A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.” That book was published June 2017.

And just like that, Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months removed since it was officially published.

A book that Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

And here’s the real shocker that’s essentially crippling the modern-day church, according to this brilliant writer:


“It’s more stressful, it seems, for the married Christians,” Latimer said of the dreaded trend that is domestic violence. “Especially if you’re a pastor, deacon, or community leader. People that are well known are held to a higher standard and it would be world news if these private lives were exposed. I wanted to show people that God still hears and remembers you.  You may not see it, but He is working on your behalf.”

S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

VISION UNFOLDING — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Latimer, a domestic violence survivor, eloquently said, “That God is real. His angels are real and there is life after domestic violence. My goal is to reach those that won’t go to church, but still love a good read…those that believe in God, but are still stuck in the world’s way of living. God can fix any mess you may be in.”

However, once she commenced to constructing a book that figures to impact countless of lives throughout the Body of Christ and can be purchased at https://acepublishing.org/, she was reminded, among other things, that God had essentially singled her out to write a book for such a critical time as now.

Now with “Castdown: God Remembers You” presently on the market, Latimer has announced that other books are forthcoming, most notably “Castdown 2: God Is Pleased,” which is projected to hit the market this summer.


WOMAN OF PURPOSE 

ARRANGED AND APPOINTED BY GOD — Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months since it was officially published.

To her credit, she’s become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the release of her latest book.

“(Check out the) reviews from amazon,” said Latimer, who has already taken part in a few book signings since the release of her latest written document. “(People say it is) easy read and the characters you care about. I love the intertwining of the Word with the storyline and characters, and (people are) looking forward to the next book. It’s a great book for women in similar situations.”

Because after all, our spiritual place somewhat by which we must protect at all cost.

North Carolina author Marcell Gill’s “Get Rid Of Yourself” book drawing constant rave reviews


Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8 KJV)


Sometime in the Summer of 2017, God strategically placed Marcell Gill on an assignment, one that was centered largely on helping people to alter their way of thinking.

For Gill, it was an monumental assignment he graciously embraced.


VISION UNFOLDING 

USED BY GOD — A book in which North Carolina author Marcell Gill needed a little more than a year to compose, “Get Rid of Yourself” headlines, among other things, this author’s featured purpose that’s geared toward helping people change their philosophy, he emphasized.
“I believe my purpose is to help people change their philosophy,” Gill, a Fayetteville, North Carolina-area author, told Making Headline News this week. “(I want to help) change the way they process problems and to react to them in a positive manner. I firmly believe that this book can make decision making a lot easier in the future.”

The book to which Gill is alluding is his newly-assembled written document entitled, “Get Rid of Yourself.”

A book in which Gill needed a little more than a year to compose, “Get Rid of Yourself” headlines, among other things, this author’s featured purpose that’s geared toward helping people change their philosophy, he emphasized.


A MUST READ

GOD DID IT — Much to his delight, Gill said his authorship debut undoubtedly is a “major milestone” in his life and that God is the Beneficiary of all the credit.

“The message I want people to download in their spirit is that you have been given power and authority over your mind and body,” Gill said. You, the spirit, are responsible for everything that happens in your life.”

Interestingly, Gill, by all accounts, stressed that we are not as powerless as we are taught to believe, something that, in many aspects, has crippled countless people, particularly those in the household of faith.

“Abba is our Guide, but He cannot make us get up and do anything,” Gill said. “The work that needs to be done is done through our hands. Not simply by praying and believing, but through work as well.”

MUCH INSIGHT — Interestingly, Gill, by all accounts, stressed that we are not as powerless as we are taught to believe, something that, in many aspects, has crippled countless people, particularly those in the household of faith.

A book that is just weeks removed from its official release,  Gill’s “Get Rid of Yourself” has already generated favorable feedback which, to his credit, figures to be a sign of things to come.

“The overall response has been stellar,” said Gill, a U. S. Army veteran. “The beta readers shared a genuine appreciation for my transparency and the willingness to discuss taboo subjects.”

Much to his delight, Gill said his authorship debut undoubtedly is a “major milestone” in his life and that God is the Beneficiary of all the credit.

CHECK THIS OUT — A book that is just weeks removed from its official release, Gill’s “Get Rid of Yourself” has already generated favorable feedback which, to his credit, figures to be a sign of things to come.

“The Father has allowed me the opportunity to share this with the world and has equipped me to do so,” said Gill, adding that a few local speaking engagements are presently in the works and the he’s open to accepting more as they arise. “It’s all about changing lives and this is just the beginning.” 


As expected, Gill has announced that other books are forthcoming — much sooner than later.

HE AIN’T DONE — As expected, Gill has announced that other books are forthcoming — much sooner than later.

“I think it’s only fair to write another book based on adding to yourself since the first book speaks on ridding ourselves of the wrong mindset,” Gill said. “This project may become a series in the near future.”

Of course, Gill doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’d be remiss if he didn’t offer this notable suggestion: “The last message I want to leave (my readers) with is this: Continuously renew your mind every day. Every single day. Form positive habits. Be the cause and reap the benefits of the effect. Trust God and manifest love at all times.”

Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards to take place February 14-17 from Houston

 


And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. (1 Thessalonians 5:23 KJV)


DALLAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

A three-day event that will take place February 14-17 at Houston’s  Marriott Hotel Hobby Airport — located at 9100 Gulf Freeway — the TGMEA will is annual event that is centered largely on providing a platform for new gospel artists, most notably those who aspire to move up the ranks of the music industry, a spokesperson told Making Headline News this week.


IT’S ALL ABOUT KING JESUS 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Gospel artists around the country will be afforded the golden opportunity to acquire the exposure they so desperately seek during the upcoming Texas Gospel Music Excellence Awards.

In addition to an event that has been in existence for a little more than two decades, artists and aspiring artists will have the chance to grasp a thorough overview of what  TGMEA organizers have labeled the “vehicle of education and networking opportunities.”

“These efforts have assisted in the springboard of many of gospel artists in the past, providing a face-to-face experience with other artists, promoters, producers, and media (personalities),” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


MORE ON THE TGMEA: https://www.facebook.com/events/2177642512456944/

Powered by the Excellence Awards nonprofit organization, the theme that organizers have adopted during the 2019 TGMEA is: Focusing On The Total Person: Mind, Body, And Soul,” a featured slogan that is accompanied by the familiar Biblical passage that is 1 Thessalonians 5:23.

As usual, the TGMEA is being organized by a host of individuals, most notably its Co-Founders, Pastor Larry Davies and his wife, First Lady Sharon Davies.

The TGMEA is available to gospel artists nationwide, event organizers emphasized.

“Attending this event will afford the new artists some exposure and knowledge of how the industry operates, what it takes to become successful, and to learn the language of the industry,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA. “Due to the fact that in this new age of gospel music, the changes in the industry are ever so changing. But if any new artists are determined that this is the way they want to go, attending this event will be a help.

“Including awarding these artists for their creativity and hard work in gospel ministry as an independent artist, we have a chance to exhibit our appreciation via the gospel community.”

Interestingly, organizers said artists in attendance will have an opportunity to have their music projects serviced by what is known as its “servicing area,” during which they will pass their respective projects to various radio stations and media personnel on hand for the TGMEA.


“Of course, if the up-and-coming artists perform on any of the events scheduled during the event, (they will be afforded the opportunity) to be heard and identified amongst their constituents and other media affiliates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.


And, just like in years’ past, the TGMEA will include its customary Morning Glory worship to commence each day of the three-day event, as well as a Gospel Music Industry Educational Workshop, Praise and Worship Workshop, Praise Dance Workshop, and a Women of Excellence Forum and Book Release (brunch tickets are $35.00).


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

Also, there will be a Preachers and Ministers Forum, and Ambassadors Annual Meeting, a Valentine’s Day Late Night Soiree (which is $35.00 per couple), a Late Night New Artist Showcase, and the TGMEA finale that is known as CHOIRMANIA.

“We encourage everyone to come witness the various ministries and anointed talents of our delegates,” said a spokesperson for the TGMEA.

Little Rock author/evangelist R. M. Hoof’s ‘Broken Alabaster Box’ having a massive kingdom impact


And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a sinner, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster box of ointment; and stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed them with the ointment. (Luke 7:37-39 KJV) 


Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, R. M. Hoof was willing to do whatever necessary to steadfastly cover her beloved daughter and others — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

Saying if, by chance, her daughter had become victimized by rape, Hoof — just as she was taught as a young child while being raised in a Christian environment — deemed it essential to turn to God for some much-needed sense of direction.


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

UNSHAKABLE FAITH — A native of Camden, Arkansas, R. M. Hoof of Little Rock is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Broken Alabaster Box,” a newly-project written document that is a little more than 11 months removed from its official release.

“I did not want my daughter to feel that if she was raped, that it was her fault or any other woman for that reason,” Hoof told Making Headline News this week.

As it turned out, God, His usual reliable Self, wasted little time guiding Hoof – this devout woman of faith — on a memorable, spiritually-enhancing journey, one whereby she would be afforded the golden opportunity to share of her assortment of testimonies in what has been widely dubbed a kingdom-advancing book.

BUY R. M. HOOF’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Broken-Alabaster-Box-Renita-Hoof/dp/0692063900

Released officially on January 29, 2018, Hoof’s “Broken Alabaster Box” is comprised of 154 pages in length and depicts the beautiful story of the woman with the alabaster box, a familiar development that is housed in the book of Luke in the New Testament, which Hoof cites has had a major impact on her.

“I once considered myself even lower than this woman, who had committed many sins,” Hoof, a longtime licensed evangelist, explained in a detailed breakdown of her book at Amazon.com. “But whose desire to honor Jesus in her own humble way, drove her to disregard not just the social protocol of the day, but others’ opinion of her. She honored Jesus by anointing His feet with expensive perfume contained in an alabaster box.”

But here’s the real breakthrough, Hoof reveals to the people of God in a book that’s also available at Barnes and Noble online and at Little Rock’s Pyramid Book Store (located at 1001 Wright Avenue).

“We all have an alabaster box that we can present to the Lord,” she said without hesitation.


MORE ON AUTHOR R. M. HOOF: https://www.renitahoof.com/

A book that Hoof – whose widely known as Renita Hoof — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of eight months to assemble, her authorship debut has been so remarkably impressive that her reading audience has already begun inquiring about whether she will produce other books.


“I have been asked countless times when is the second book coming out. I have been asked to speak at several churches about the book as well. I have been told that it was a page-turner and they could not put it down.” — Author Evangelist R. M. Hoof 


Having announced that she has speaking engagements lined up — “However, there are none at the time pertaining to the book,” she said — other books are currently in the works, Hoof said.

SPIRITUAL GPS SYSTEM — As it turned out, God, His usual reliable Self, wasted little time guiding Hoof – this devout woman of faith — on a memorable, spiritually-enhancing journey, one whereby she would be afforded the golden opportunity to share of her assortment of testimonies in what has been widely dubbed a kingdom-advancing book.

“Beyond The Brokenness and And Raising David and Deborah; Warriors,” said Hoof, revealing the names of her forthcoming written works.

When asked in what ways is her latest book apart of the purpose for which God has created her, Hoof said, “My ministry is to broken men and women. My heart has always gone out to them. It wasn’t until after the birth of the book that I realized my true call and purpose. The plan was then revealed.”

All things considered, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Hoof’s God-orchestrated plan has come full circle and, most importantly, it is steadily advancing the kingdom in the process.

THEY WANT MORE — A book that Hoof – whose widely known as Renita Hoof — needed somewhere in the neighborhood of eight months to assemble, her authorship debut has been so remarkably impressive that her reading audience has already begun inquiring about whether she will produce a second book.

“Broken Alabaster Box was birthed through the pain of a young woman who did not see herself through the eyes of God,” Hoof emphasized. “My vision was blurred and obscured. I only saw myself through the lens of my assailants.”

But God…

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — When asked in what ways is her latest book apart of the purpose for which God has created her, Hoof said, “My ministry is to broken men and women. My heart has always gone out to them. It wasn’t until after the birth of the book that I realized my true call and purpose. The plan was then revealed.”

“I had no self-worth and my self-esteem was only predicated on what someone else thought of me,” Hoof recalled. “Jealousy and insecurity ran ramped in my mind. Strong holds held my thoughts captive. It was only until I began to have a real relationship with God was I set free.”

That’s because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, she was willing to do whatever was necessary to steadfastly capture and sustain the abundant life that Christ came to give us — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

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


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SELETHA TUCKER


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

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

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


TEACHER’S BOOK FAIR 

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

A 44-page written document, Tucker’s “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray” has been overwhelming dubbed a “must read,” considering it is a rather uplifting book filled with fervent prayers, many of which are accompanied by what this writer refers to as “promises to inspire, encourage, uplift, and to give you strength to make it one more day,” according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s book in an Amazon.com synopsis.


BUY SELETHA’S SECOND BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Hat-Melinda-Fighting-Leukemia-Together/dp/162086164X

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

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

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

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


BUY SELETHA’S THIRD BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Stephens-Presentation-Seletha-Tucker/dp/1620867265

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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